A truly upmarket luxury camping experience in the South Lakes between Newby Bridge and Ulverston. Abbots Reading Farm is a traditional, working, family run farm within the Lake District National Park and is situated in the tranquil Rusland Valley.
We farm in a very environmentally sensitive way and are passionate about producing a top quality eating product from our traditional, native breeds of livestock. We are in a Higher Level Stewardship agreement with Natural England and work closely with the RSPB and have been recognised as one of the most inspirational wildlife-friendly farms in the UK.
