- Tranquil, Adult only, scenic, touring Caravan and Motorhome Park
- 15 level Hardstanding Pitches. 5 of them for Caravan Club Memb. only
Do you cherish the thought of being able to relax alongside the associated wildlife of a picturesque River-Bank, within the bounds of a child and youth free environment, surrounded by the peaceful, unspoilt, Scenic Cumbrian Countryside, alongside the unique walking and cycling opportunities of the virtually undiscovered and unspoilt Northern fells and area, at the Northern tip of the Lake District National park?
"Riverside Tourer Park"
is divided into two areas.
The "Millrace" is the licenced part of the site, which means that even though you may be a caravan club member, you don't necessarily have to be a member of any club, to enjoy a well earned break with your touring Caravan, Motorhome or Campervan on this area.
And the "CL" (Certificated Location), available to a total of five units belonging to Members of the Caravan Club.
(a) Easy 15 MINUTE, wide, straight ACCESS ROAD from J41 of the M6 Motorway.
(b) A Small site, but with a Spacious feeling. Quiet, Secluded, Tranquil, Friendly, Relaxing.
Away from noise of main roads, pubs & industry. Just the babbling of the river.
(c) RIVER BANK SETTING. Two rivers converge on site.
(d) At the Un-spoilt, Scenic Northern tip of the Lake District National Park.
(e) Door step reach to the Northern Fells, and un-rivalled "open" Common-land WALKING.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
