Howbeck Lodge Farm

We say

Part of the hugely successful Feather Down Farms concept, Howbeck Lodge Farm is camping for those who like their creature comforts – rustic decor and outdoor living but with comfy bedding and all mod cons thrown in including a hob, wood burner and coffee grinder. Feather Down takes pride in the details, making sure you always get a jaw-dropping view, the eggs are always ready to be collected from the chicken coop; and fresh bacon and milk is only a larder trip away. This leaves you more time to concentrate on enjoying yourself and making the most of your surroundings. You don't need a tent, as they come pre-erected, fully furnished and look somewhat close to a rural pop up palace. Feather Down use redundant land from farmers, build the tents, and then let the (more authentic) farmers look after you.

Howbeck Lodge Farm is one of Feather Down Farm's more popular sites, due to it being sweetly situated in the Lake District. Summer sees the onset of plenty of food fairs, with microbrewery stalls and fresh local produce on offer, as well as plenty of activities happening on the lakes. But ultimately you have free reign to do as much or as little as you please, whether it's sipping local ales in nearby village pubs, or windsurfing on Lake Windermere.
