General

  • 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.
(f) The nearest touring Caravan & Motorhome park to the Eastern side of the unspoilt, and virtually undiscovered Northern Fells, yet only an easy 15 minutes from J41 of the M6.
(g) GOOD for CYCLING. The Local network of small roads are virtually traffic free.
(h) The Northern Fells bridleways are the perfect terrain for off-road Mountain Biking.
(i) Well Spaced level and wide HARD STANDING PITCHES.
(j) ELECTRIC HOOK-UPs on all pitches.
(k) All pitches are HARD STANDING, (& on the Millrace, mature privacy hedges in between)
(l) SHOWERS and TOILETS with comfort heating. (snug, cosy, warm and uniquely private)
(m) ADULTS ONLY There are no children on the site, (21 year olds +)
(n) AFFORDABLE. (Just compare our pitch fees to larger sites)
Your, low cost, well deserved, child & youth free, peace & relaxation on the riverbank
(o) OPEN ALL YEAR. Your Sheltered winter retreat.
(p) ALL-WEATHER, well spaced HARD-STANDINGS. (6 on the CL and 9 on the Millrace)
(q) FISHING, (free but not serious) from our stretch of riverbank. (No fishing clubs or Groups please).
(r) MOTOR HOME FRIENDLY. (On-board-tank, fill and emptying facilities)
(s) PETS WELCOME. (Avoid expensive kennel charges, bring your dog with you)
(t) EXCELLENT TV RECEPTION, ("Digital Free-View"), so PLEASE do not use the site WiFi for viewing live television. Bring your television set.
(u) Ideal Sheltered Safe-Haven Winter break destination
(v) On the "Millrace Area" you don't need to be a member of the Caravan Club, or any Club.
(w) "WI-FI Internet access", now with recenty improved Broadband connectivity and coverage all over the site. Only £1 per day.
(x) Most of the major SUPERMARKETS DELIVER to the site, with on-line orders.
(y) Only 30 minutes journey to the Historic Border City of Carlisle, with it's modern "LANES" Shopping Centre, and plenty of city centre car parking.
(z) The local Northern Fells, (and potential Local Fell Walks, only 10 minutes drive from the site), are featured in detail in Alfred Wainwright's "Pictorial Guide to the Lakeland Fells", (The Northern Fells) book number Five.
