Orcaber Caravan and Camping Site: Super pitches - hard standing, water tap and grey waste disposal

General

  • Peaceful and family-run site next to the Forest of Bowland
  • In a walkers' paradise near the Yorkshire Three Peaks
  • A variety of pre-ordered homemade pizzas on Saturday evenings

These routes are made for walking… Orcaber Caravan and Camping Site is in the Three Peaks area of the Yorkshire Dales National Park for hikes up Whernside, Ingleborough and Pen-y-Ghent, and right next to the wanders and strides of the Forest of Bowland, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Many more walks and footpaths start directly from the site; get a map from the site information office to show you on your way.

Based at the village of Austwick and five miles from the market town of Settle on the edge of the national park, Orcaber is a peaceful and family-run site, set among outstanding scenery with horses and sheep grazing in the neighbouring fields. Dogs are welcome (on leads on site at all times please) and a big field with stream is allocated as a dog walk area on site.

Pitches at Orcaber are large, flat and well drained. Facilities include separate ladies' and gents' showers with plenty of hot water; toilets; a freezer with coolbox ice packs, and an info room with details of local attractions, events – and those many local walks.

A variety of pre-ordered homemade pizzas are available on Saturday evenings.

    We were given an informative welcome on arrival and were left to our own devices for the remainder of our stay, which we always appreciate. Location was great. We walked to Clapham and round the Ingleborough Estate Nature Trail, with its lovely cafe, from the site and back. About an 8 mile loop. The New Inn at Clapham is walkable but is currently closed and the Game Cock at Austwick is closed Mondays so didn’t get to visit either local pub - maybe next time! There’s a lovely family business in Clapham selling wool and sheepskin goods - Glencroft.
    The site’s facilities were clean and tidy and the 50p showers are about as good as they come - last ages too! Music playing gives you something to sing along to as you get clean! Choice of outdoor/indoor pot wash was nice.
    We didn’t use the shop but it’s nice to see one on site.
    The nosey free range chickens are a novelty and appear from nowhere as you step outside, casting a watchful eye over proceedings!
    The dog walk is fab and loops around a field, where we saw the farmer out with a horse and trap.
    We came away impressed with the site but felt we didn’t see the site or area at its best with it being January! We saw enough to make us want to return in better weather! Thank you for a lovely stay!

    Disliked: 

    There are some very nasty, deep, quite widespread potholes at the caravan entrance. We were really worried about damaging our car and van so had to drive very slowly on the way in and out. I really hope that these are due to be filled in soon. With everything else so well kept, I’m sure they must be high on the agenda!

Local attractions

The Three Peaks of Whernside, Ingleborough and Pen-y-Ghent in close range are a topping location for walkers – if you're here to hike, see if you can complete the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge to tackle the 24 miles around all three in one day.

Orcaber Caravan Camping Site is also near the famed Ingleton Waterfalls Trail for woodland-based walks among spectacular northern scenery, and within easy driving distance of the waterfalls, stalactites and tours of the spectacular White Scar Caves, the longest show cave in the UK.

Also recommended by the Orcaber team are the Settle to Carlisle railway line, through 73 miles of spectacular countryside through the Yorkshire Dales and the North Pennines, and passing splendid Ribblehead viaduct. The limestone formation of Malham Cove, a famed Yorkshire Dales beauty spot, is also a popular local spot.

Yet more walks, hikes and heaps more spectacular scenery are at the Lake District National Park, about an hour's drive away.
