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...

Great site for hill walkers 0 Will definitely be coming back 05/11/2018

    Overall a great site.

    Chose this site as we are hill walkers and its situated in a great location for some fantastic walks.

    Washroom clean and tidy and liked the music! Lovely big pitches. 16Amp EHU. Or hitch (grass) was nice and level.

    Great views of the distant hills. Security (Barrier) is a welcome addition. Well maintained hedges and flowerbeds.

    Arrival was very welcoming. Free wifi is a great touch. Short walk into town.

    Water and waste points were well placed.

    This is a fantastic site and we really enjoyed our short stay - we will be back next year for a longer stay. A+++++++ :)

    Disliked: 

    Not sure the washrooms needed a lock, i don't think the general public would wander in for a wee.

    Not the parks fault (There are signs everywhere) but some irresponsible dog owner let its dog poo on the road directly in front of my van, they picked it up - but if others can take their dogs off site, I'm sure they could do the same - people walk up and down that road - nasty!

    The Chem toilet point could do with a more powerful hosepipe to help flush out the Thetford - Also could do with a mesh over the drain - was worried that something may fall down that hole :(

    This is a really great site!

    Thank You Pennine View. Your site is a joy, from the most helpful friendly staff, who kept the facilities so clean and made us feel so welcome, the most wonderful site to pick for our first time, in our first caravan, we felt so lucky to find this gem just an hour from home, we can't wait to come back, loved the peacefulness of the site we were so relaxed when we got home, 3 nights felt like 3 weeks of tranquillity and calm. We're already planning a stay in March 2019

    Very friendly and helpful welcome. Lovely clean and tidy site with spotless toilets. Lots of space around pitches, excellent access to the local footpaths for lovely walks in the surrounding area including the old railway track less than 100 yards from the site. It's about a mile (uphill - which means it's all downhill on the way back!) to the Railway station on the Settle to Carlisle railway. We will definitely be back. And free wifi.

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.
