Howbeck Lodge Farm

Howbeck Lodge Farm

Cumbria, Hesket Newmarket, CA7 8JN

Located within the Lake District National Park, you can experience true rural isolation and a little piece of heaven at your Canvas Lodge when on your glamping Cumbria getaway. You are only 2 hours' drive from Manchester here in the Northern Fells. There are a plethora of walks on your doorstep, quiet beaches at the Solway Firth, and not to forget the beautiful world-renowned lakes of the Lake District, and nearby rivers. Keswick is just 16 miles away to jump into the action but be able to step out again.

The Stobart family have farmed at Howbeck Lodge for over 20 years. Howbeck is a traditional sheep and beef farm of 300 acres that is worked in a sustainable manner as part of the higher level Countryside Stewardship Scheme. John is passionate about his livestock, particularly his Highland cattle. The lambs in spring, prize winning Highland cattle and paddling in the stream, are all a stone’s throw from the tents. Unfortunately, dogs cannot be accommodated.

Christine is well known locally for her homemade produce, available at the pretty farm pantry in the little barn by the tents. One guest’s comment represented exactly what they aim for: “John made us laugh, Christine’s food made us drool, and Sarah taught us how to feed lambs. It was truly one of the best holidays we’ve ever had”. In the lovingly restored barn, the hot showers are downstairs and the farm pantry above.

Another rich slice of rural England is served up almost every week in the area from June until September in the form of agricultural shows. You might even see John there with his prize livestock, as he is a regular trophy winner. Howbeck Farm is a short stroll to the unspoilt village of Hesket Newmarket, which boasts a lovely children’s play area, a riverside walk and the very popular Old Crown Pub, well worth a visit along with the Hesket Newmarket Brewery Cooperative.

We are the Howbeck family and have farmed at Howbeck for over 20 years. We have 3 children, David, Joanne and Sarah. Although Jo is married and has a son, they spend as much time as possible back on the farm near the beautiful Lake District.

We hope to welcome you soon, John & Christine
