General

  • Award-winning park in the heart of Cumbria's Eden Valley near Appleby
  • Easy access to the Yorkshire Dales, Lake District and North Pennines
  • Pool, paddling pool and bar-restaurant on site

It's quite easy to roam wild from Wild Rose Park. For not only is this lovely little site set deep in Cumbria's Eden Valley with all manner of divine walks, hamlets and villages on the doorstep, it has very handy access to areas that holidaymakers come from very afar to see.

The Lake District, the North Pennines and the Yorkshire Dales are all niftily accessible from Wild Rose, along with exceedingly handsome market town Appleby-in-Westmorland near by and opps for sporty days out at local golf courses.

You should also settle down for a railway trip on the Settle-Carlisle Line, one of the most spectacularly scenic in the country – and a picnic at nearby High Force waterfall should be simply smashing too.

It's easy to roam around and keep busy or relaxed on site as well with the heap of facilities to keep all ages happy: Wild Rose Park has a heated outdoor pool and paddling pool open from May to September (weather dependent), a play area and games room, and an on-site badminton court.

Breakfast, lunch, dinners and takeaways are sorted at the site's Cock a Hoop bar and lounge which has a good range of food to suit all tastes and budgets – you'll be cock a hoop at the choice on offer.

This site is a member of Harrison Leisure UK group.

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Mike J. Confirmed

  • Hazel Heights fully-serviced hardstanding and grass touring caravan pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Large site, using a serviced pitch. Large toilet blocks. Pub/restaurant very nice, and food good quality. Site would no doubt be beautiful during spring/summer.

    Disliked: 

    Toilet block was dated, but kept clean, showers were basic, but functional.The pitch was a serviced version, but we had to move a lot of leaves to find the grey waste drain, which in turn was also full of leaves. It may be Autumn, but pitch housekeeping should be continuously monitored. The adjacent pitch looked like someone had vacated in a rush as there was a complete wheel lock assembly, awning skirt and water hose strewn across it, and it made the pitch look scruffy. The main site is mostly residential mobile homes, but a number of these pitches had been vacated leaving behind piles of pipework, jacks, etc, again making the place look unkempt.

The location, caravan and on-site facilities were very good and ... 25/08/2018

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Anonymous Confirmed

  • Platinum 2 bedroom static caravan (no pets)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The location, caravan and on-site facilities were very good and clean. And the reception staff upon arrival were amazing as we encounted a problem with our car roof box breaking and not being able to get into it, they pointed us in the direction of help and made sure our caravan was ready when arriving back at the site. The resturant staff were friendly, the food was amazing and we didn’t have to wait long for it.

    Disliked: 

    The site seemed to have a problem with wasps and this became an issue when we were wasting a lot of our time chasing them out of the caravan or car as we have a 4 month old and 3 year old who we didn’t want getting stung.

    The on-site shop didn’t have a lot of choice we ended up going to ALDI in Penrith.

    We reported 2 faulty which neither were fixed; one being the door wouldn’t lock properly and the other being the bedside dimmable lights in the master bed room were not working, so we were given a bedside table light which was brighter than the main light in the bedroom, which was an issue as a breastfeeding mummy.

    Having said this, the issues were minimal and we would still return for another holiday there.

Local attractions

Wild Rose Park's nearest town, Appleby-in-Westmorland, is as cute as you'd expect from Cumbria – it was once a fiercely defended border stronghold from the time when the English and the Scots were wrangling, but is now a sedate and scenic market town with an 18-hole golf course, indoor swimming pool, individual shops and old traditional pubs (the best type).

And it also has a castle, and an ancient church, both linked by the also-exceedingly scenic tree-lined main street of Appleby. The church, St Lawrence, is open all year for services, but for the castle, those wishing to have a nosy will need to book tickets for a tour from the Appleby tourist information centre as the castle is now privately owned.

From Appleby, take the Settle-Carlisle Line through the Yorkshire Dales and the North Pennines for a very pretty day trip; the full run is 73 miles, but if you only have time for one leg of it, go towards Settle, to pass Ribblehead and the Ribblehead Viaduct.

The Eden river, also as spectacularly scenic as you'd expect in Cumbria, has a lot to do along/in it and its tributaries – fishing, naturally, but also canoeing, boating, birdwatching or simply wandering along its beaut banks.

Also in the area, have a look at the Lakeland heritage centre Rheged in Penrith and Tullie House in Carlisle, go swinging among the trees at Glenridding Forest or explore historical houses, family attractions and loads more: call into the Wild Rose Park reception or to the park tourist information room for top tips.

Must see

  • High Force Waterfall (13.3 miles)
  • The Rheged Centre (14.4 miles)
  • Dalemain Historic House & Gardens (15.2 miles)

National Trust

  • Acorn Bank Garden and Watermill (8.8 miles)
  • Townend (20.4 miles)
