Welcome to a 21st Century Lodge and Camping Site
Our site opened in the summer of 2010. Ideally located close to the Hadrian’s Wall trails (walking and cycling) and the beautiful Solway coast, we have facilities catering for all visitors to the area. We are situated between the villages of Monkhill and Beaumont - 4 miles from Carlisle and 9 miles from the start/end of the trail at Bowness on Solway.
Both the Hadrian’s Wall Path and Sustrans Cycle Route 72 are 400 yards from our site. Although the wall itself is not visible between Carlisle and Bowness, the stones and artefacts still exist in various churches and old buildings in the area. The Northern Lake District (Penrith and Keswick) is within a 40 minute drive with the M6 being approximately a 10 minute drive.
We welcome all those people looking for accommodation with a modern attitude towards outdoor living - particularly walkers and cyclists (for whom we offer discounts). We have the award-winning designs in self-catering accommodation and camping cabins:
|Shieling (en-suite cabin)
The cabin is fully equipped for up to four people with a dining room/kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. The cabin is fully heated and has TV. Please note that we only have one of these cabins on site.
|Camping Cabin / Wigwam
These are cabins for those who want a little more comfort than traditional camping. They are equipped with a sleeping and seating area, heating and lighting, TV and some cooking facilities.
We have a flat grassed area for tents.
Please note that all of our cabins are ‘no-smoking’.
Site facilities iinclude a washing-up area, communal room/lounge, reading room including a small library and exhibition, drying facilities, bike storage and bike shower. Firepits and barbecues are also available on site.
If you are fed up (as we are) with communal toilets and showers, we have high quality self-contained bathrooms for campers and cabin users.
We can provide breakfast snacks and packed lunches on site - booking advisable when possible.
Well-behaved pets are welcome on-site.
The Drovers Rest pub and restaurant (offering great food, beer and company) is in Monkhill - 300 yards from our site - see their Facebook page. We strongly encourage people to book meals in advance as this can be a very busy pub - tel: 01228 576 141.
