- Small and scenic caravan site on Appleby Golf Club in Cumbria
- A 15-minute drive to the North Pennines; 25 minutes to Lake District
- On a moorland golf course; pubs and shops five minutes’ drive away
A small and simple site with one very big USP, Brackenber Moor Caravan Site is bang in the middle of Appleby Golf Club, just off the A66. This moorland course was designed by Open Champion Willie Fernie in 1903, and it offers challenges for all levels of player – please note that the site is not part of the golf club, so you’ll need to book separately if you want to play a round.
Taking a break at Brackenber is as close to wild camping as you can get in a caravan; the minimal on-site facilities include mains water and a chemical toilet disposal facility. But hey, chances are you’ll either be or out and about exploring the area or teeing off on that golf course.
Dogs are welcome too, but due to the particular nature of the site, with flocks of free-roaming sheep around, they'll need to be kept on leads at all times.
Sitting on the Eden river, Appleby-in-Westmorland is a great place to visit any time of year, with a medieval castle and Georgian-era architecture. A nose around will turn up plenty of pubs and restaurants if you fancy a change of scenery, or handy shops for picking up supplies if you’re going down the self-catering line.
