General

  • Family-run site a mile from the centre of Kirkby Stephen
  • Playground, free wifi and well-appointed washrooms
  • On the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park

One could base oneself at Pennine View Caravan Park for months on end to investigate the hundreds of miles' worth of spectacular paths in the area: the site is on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, a short drive from both the Lake District National Park and the North Pennines.

Walks and cycle routes catering for all tastes from gentle country strolls to challenging mountain bike trails are all around here, or you could tackle lush River Eden trout fishing, horse riding or paragliding close by, or mooch around the mighty natural attractions in the area like High Force Waterfall, or pick up local produce in Cumbrian market towns, or potter around the region's many old houses and castles…

Family-run Pennine View is well placed for the lot from its Cumbrian setting, in countryside a mile from the market town of Kirkby Stephen. It's across the road from the volunteer-run heritage Stainmore Railway Company, where there are several locomotives and rolling stock to see.

Facilities on site include a playground, free wifi, a covered washing-up area, a launderette with washing machine and tumble dryer, and amenity blocks with baby bath, disabled facilities and free hot showers – just the ticket after a satisfactory day striding o'er the local moors.

    Very clean and spacious camp. Management very helpful with lending us a few items to make our stay enjoyable. Very friendly atmosphere and great set up. It seemed great consideration had been taken in the allocation of certain campers in particular places which worked well.

    Disliked: 

    Road a bit noisy but can't be helped by the camp site as there is building work currently going on nearby.

Lovely clean site, great location, friendly staff 21/08/2017

  • Electric grass trailer tent or tent pitch (large)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The site was very clean and the staff were extremely helpful. The toilet and shower block was cleaned daily and very well kept.
    The washing machine and dryer were a reasonable price compared to another site I've stayed on so that was a bonus after we got wet and muddy out walking. The play park was a hit with the kids. They enjoyed playing there while we cooked dinner.
    They sold a few items on site so when my son used nearly a whole bottle of washing up liquid to clean his cup, we managed to get some more without having to go into the village. Wifi was a hit with the kids too. They were able to log on after being out walking all day and catch up with their friends back home.
    Above all the site is very easy to find and is great for a base when exploring the Yorkshire Dales or the Lakes.
    I have this down as a possible site for my birthday location for next year.

    Disliked: 

    The only thing I would say negative is that the heater in the toilet/shower block could be set a little warmer.

Excellent site with very clean facilities & friendly staff. 21/08/2017

  • Liked: 

    We stayed for 3 nights at Pennine View and found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. There was a little play area for the kids and the site was well run and maintained. With good access to both the Lakes and the Dales it was a convenient place to stay with plenty of things to do within a short car journey. The facilities were excellent, possibly the cleanest toilet and shower block I have seen on a camp site!. We will definitely be staying again and would recommend.

    The site was spotlessly clean and well laid out. Toilet and shower block was fantastic. Unfortunately, we only stopped for one night on our way to Surrey but we will definitely go back to this campsite. The area looks fantastic so would like to explore it more. And free wifi into the bargain. Thank you

    Cleanliness across the whole campsite was great, well looked after
    Plenty of showers for the size of campsite and quantity of people on site at the time
    Lovely dog walk close by with a bit of heritage about the old railway. Lovely viaducts and amazing views, which were worth the visit

Local attractions

Walking routes start from the site and crisscross all over the nearby Yorkshire Dales National Park, around local town Kirkby Stephen, up the Howgill Fells and through the countryside of the Eden Valley. To see it all from way up high, paragliding is available within half a mile of Pennine View.

The nearby River Eden has some spectacular fishing, all accessible a mile from the site. Wild brown trout are the main haul on the stretch of river managed by the Kirkby Stephen & District Angling Association, whose members are happy to take visitors out along the water (remember you'll need a fishing permit). Day tickets are available, with free fishing for under-18s.

Horse riding can be had four miles away, and the mountain bike trails in the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Beauty within five. The waters, boating and miles more walks of the Lake District National Park are 10 miles away.

If you want to see how folk have lived in the area throughout the centuries, the Dales Countryside Museum in Hawes is a good place to start; happily, the town is home to the Wensleydale Creamery too.
