Shepherds Views






We are a family run farm, based in West Cumbria, a stone throw from both the beach and some of the finest countryside in the UK, the Lake District.

Our farm and campsite is set in 210 acres of farmland with stunning views.
We are ideally situated as a base for access to England's Highest mountain,

Scawfell Pike which stands at 3,209ft.
If your looking for water sports then we are only a few minutes to a fantastic beach which is ideal for kayaking, canoeing, paddle boarding and sailing.

We offer a wide range of 1st class accommodation and pitches including 3 holiday cottages, 2 camping pods and beautifully maintained, fully serviced pitches. We also have a great camping area. Our camping and touring guests can enjoy a nice warm shower in our fully heated showing and wash facility.

Call today to book your next break

(If your required cottage or pitch is not available through other booking sites please

contact us as we may have a cancellation or alternative options available)

All three of our Gold award, 4 star Lake District self catering cottages were created in 2009. Each of the cottages have been created from an 18th century farmhouse and retain some original features, such as original slate floors & exposed beams. There is a private Hot Tub with each cottage. 


We have been awarded Visit England 4 star Camping & Touring Park status here at Shepherds Views Holidays and offer self catering, caravan touring & camping on the west coast of Cumbria’s Lake District.

We have a selection of fully serviced, hard standing, or pitches for touring caravans and motor homes.

There is also a large grassed area for camping and we provide an immaculate family/unisex amenity block with underfloor heating, showers, washbasins & toilet facilities.

Seasonal pitches, winter and all year round caravan storage available.


With some of the finest scenery on our doorstep step out and find your bit of tranquility. From England's highest mountain, Scafell to some awe inspiring waterfalls there is something for everyone.


Due to popular demand we have introduced cycle hire from our site available to all our guests. We have bikes available for men, ladies and children.

Further to the Prime Minister's recent announcement we are planning to be open from the 12th April 2021 for our self catering cottages and self-contained motorhomes and caravans. We are currently taking bookings. Our shower facility and pot washing facility will remain closed.

On the 17th May 2021 we plan to open the remainder of our site for camping and our camping pods, along with our shower facility and pot washing facility. We are currently taking bookings for this date onwards.

Please Note: We are NOT taking multiple bookings for this season. From the 17th May 2021 we will only accept bookings of 2 families on 2 pitches at the most or bookings of 2 pitches of up to 6 guests in total.  Please DO NOT book individually and attempt to create a larger group than this as you will be turned away or asked to leave without refund. Please refer to our Terms & Conditions.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, there are points you must be made aware of when coming to stay on our site.   There will be notices around site to remind guests of certain points also.


  • We allow only one person in reception at any time, if there is someone in there, please wait at the door until that person has left.

  • Please be courteous to other guests and keep the 2m+ social distancing.

  • We will be cleaning the shower block and its facilities more regularly than normal, so please bear with us when this is happening.  There will be disinfectant sprays and blue roll around for guests also to use, as you must also be responsible for keeping the areas you have used clean. 

  • Any children wishing to access the shower block, MUST  be accompanied by an adult, at all times.   

  • If you are in more than one group of families, please DO NOT crowd the shower block, please be courteous and keep your 1 m+ spacing if waiting to use the facilities and try to spread out the times you use it. 

  • Please try not to take too long in the showers and the shower block when able.

  • Wherever able, guests who have their own facilities in their vans/motorhomes or even tents must use these as much as possible to reduce the strain on the shower block, its facilities and the pot washing area. 

  • We have 3 portaloos around the camping site to reduce the strain on the shower/toilet block, please also use these whenever you are able. 

  • They also will be cleaned regularly throughout the day.

  • Strictly NO day visitors permitted on site


Thank you for your co-operation during these unprecedented times.  We hope you enjoy your stay.

Over the last few years we have supported 'Breast Cancer Charities with our 'Pink Tractor Appeal'

In 2015 we produced and wrapped over 300 pink bales in support of the charity.

In 2016 we purchased our New Tractor which we have had painted pink! This was been sponsored by Lloyd Ltd & painted ‘Fantasy Pink’ by Evolution. This tractor was  available to view at several Agricultural Shows throughout this year in Cumbria at the Lloyd Ltd Stand.

In between the tractor being at various shows it will be seen around our farm, next to Shepherds Views Holidays.


In 2017 we did something very different. With the support of a local media company, Aerosnapper Media and their aerial drone we managed to row up one of our fields in the shape of the charities logo.


Anyone wishing to make a donation to ‘The Pink Tractor Appeal’ can do so either at Lloyd Ltd, Carlisle Branch or to Shepherds Views Holidays – contact Stephen, Julie or Peter. All donations made go to Breast Cancer Now for Breast Cancer Charities. Visit our blog for more information. You can also donate through our Just Giving page by clicking the sponsor me button.
