Moat Vale Campsite is located within the wooded landscape of Netherby Estate. A quiet backwater land, more tranquil than the congested Lake District but handy for trips out to Hadrian's Wall, the Nothern Lakes Dand the Galloway Coast. Carlisle city is 12 miles away and local facilities can be found in the village of Longtown, 3 miles down the road.
Netherby Estate is part of the Debatable Lands of the Anglo-Scottish Borders and evidence of the skirmishing can be found in the number of fortified buildings in the area, including the Hermitage Castle, Gilnockie Tower and Carlisle Castle
On the small holding are sheep, chickens and an extensive vegetable garden.
Cyclists doing long distance routes such as national cycle way route 7 , the Border Reivers Route and the Lands end to John o Groats find us a handy stop over point for recuperation.
