Dry Camping Experience



In line with government guide lines, we're opening the camping barn for sole use bookings for groups made up of people from 1 or 2 households/bubbles, up to 12 people. There will be 72 hours between each booking to ensure the barn is thoroughly cleaned. Extra care will be taken to sanitise door handles, light switches and items regularly used in the barn. We have installed a hand sanitiser station at the entrance to the barn. All other sanitiser/disinfectant you require for your stay will be brought with you as part of your camping equipment.


Hudscales Camping Barn is part of a group of well maintained farm buildings on a working beef and sheep farm, sitting at 1,000 ft on the northernmost flank of the Lakeland Fells, overlooking the villages of Caldbeck and Hesket Newmarket. On the edge of the Lake District National Park it offers great access to the Northern Fells and will give walkers and hikers access to incredible scenery.


The barn offers a traditional way of reconnecting with nature and exploring the world famous UNESCO heritage Lake District National Park while also being just 30 minutes from Carlisle.

Sleeping accommodation is on the ground floor along with a food preparation area, eating area, wood burning stove and games room. The barn is kept very simple and the maximum group size is 12. Overflow camping is available with sole occupancy bookings.


Ideal for walkers it is  situated on the Cumbria Way and Reiver Cycle Routes. Great for weekend gatherings of family and friends in an idyllic and peaceful setting. 

The barn has a sleeping area with adjoining cooking and dining area with wood burning stove for added comfort. Upstairs a games room with pool table and darts. Shower and electric plug sockets are powered by a coin meter which accepts £1 coins.
Perfect for individual travelers or groups, the room is non-smoking. A tranquil escape from the stresses of modern day living.
