Hollows Farm is in Borrowdale!
I used to use Bayesbrown Farm, in the days when I last bothered to use a campsite in Langdale... which was winter 1975!
I used to pay around 20p per night to camp on sites, but these days there are too many cheeky chappies asking me for £20 for the privilege, so I stay out in the wilds instead.
Further up the Langdales valley road you start to go uphill towards little langdales. Campavans have parked up there for many years in the past. Although check it out before he tries it as it is steep and a narrow cattlegrid on a bend at the foot of the hill might restrict it if its a big one not just a VW sized one (or a bit bigger).
Its free and close enough to the NT campsite. Also If you turn up and he can camp at the site too then no problem but this is there as a back up IF you want to risk it.
I don't know the legality of doing it though but have seen others doing it. I have left my car there overnight before now when wildcamping. Up to you.
