General

  • Small, peaceful and family-run site next to the Forest of Bowland
  • In a walkers' paradise near the Yorkshire Three Peaks
  • Spectacular scenery with horses and sheep grazing close by

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, small 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.

Please note

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

A charge of £0.50 applies for the use of the shower.

Very clean toilets. Big pitches.09/07/2020

  • Electric grass tent pitch

    We got to choose our pitch as it wasn't too busy. The site is big and we had plenty of choice. The pitches are big too! We could effectively come out as far as we wanted.
    The pitch was nice and flat.
    The toilets are fairly new and are very clean. It looks like they have added additional toilets as well so we never had any issues with queues.
    The owner was very friendly. We got a large picnic table dropped off outside our tent and could have had a fire pit if we wanted.
    The location is quite good and you are only 10 mins from Settle to get anything you might have forgot - or a takeaway. :-)
    There was wifi but we couldnt get it down the bottom of the field.
    I would definitely recommend.

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.
