Orcaber Caravan and Camping Site: Lots of space for small and large tents

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

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

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

    Visiting in January there wasn’t a lot of other people around. However, this is a beautiful site, with amazing views of the dales, peace and quiet, and great full service pitches which are nicely spaced and situated. Didn’t use the shower/toilets on site so can’t comment but overall everywhere was very clean and tidy. Would certainly visit again.

    Toilets/showeroom are immaculate, good size flat pitch, brilliant location, 15-20 minute walk to Austwick where there is a good shop and pub, buses are available to many places around the area, also a good base for various walks, we walked to settle all off road with lovely views, got the bus back after a meal and a couple of drinks. Perfect.

    We are new to motor-homing and this was our very first outing. I think we struck gold choosing Orcaber, we were met by Neil who explained all the facilities and even gave us change for the showers! On that note the toilets & shower facilities were spotless and very warm.
    We stayed on a large fully serviced pitch with free WiFi.
    This was the positive start to our motorhome experience that we wanted, we will definitely be back!

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.
