Pennine View Caravan Park: Grass pitch

General

  • Family-run site a mile from the centre of Kirkby Stephen
  • Playground, free wifi, bar 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. The caravan park itself is in fact part of a historic railway goods yard – something you'll no doubt note when you stop by at its Engine Shed bar for drinks and takeaway food (on selected nights) in a characterful and welcoming spot.

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…

Lovely for a short stay, dog and kid friendly.13/08/2022

Reviewer's country: United KingdomAnonymousMobile phone iconConfirmed

  • Electric grass tent pitch (two person)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    We had a good sized pitch, there were communal pots and pans and picnic tables. Very close to the river and beautiful walks. Dog and kid friendly. Clubhouse pub/restaurant was very lovely we had one meal there which was very tasty. We sat outside which there was a lovely outside space, large beer garden type space.

    Disliked: 

    Not many activites, could of had some communal games and just more to do in general. Showers nearest to the tent pitches were very hot and one shower you could not control the temperature it got very very hot. Because of this it was also humid and their was lots of moisture in the cubicles due to no windows and lack of circulating air. Same with the toilets no windows or vents so can get smelly. It is also very closed to the busy main road which was noisy at times due to heavy good vehicles and wagons passing by this could have just been the pitch that we were on as it was right in ther corner.

  • Electric gravel touring pitch

  • Liked: 

    Clean but rather cramped site with only 2 showers between all the pitches. A bit noisy in the even due to lots of dogs and people walking past on the gravel. Engine shed bar was nice but would have preferred one of the nights when they're serving pizza. Had a nice walk down the attached river/viaduct path that was a welcome surprise. We'll stick to more rural sites in the future.

    Lovely clean site, pitches where a good size, staff friendly and helpful. The engine shed pub was great. The river just at the bottom of the site was so pretty and it was great to be able to walk the dogs in the field, although there where sheep in the field it wasn’t a problem. Will definitely go back.

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.
