Pennine View Caravan Park: Play area

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…

Good site, clean, well organised, good position. Recommended.21/06/2021

Reviewer's country: United KingdomAndrew K.Confirmed

  • Electric grass touring pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Well managed clean site well positioned for access to the town and surrounding area. Nice local walks down by the river and on the disused railway. Very helpful in dealing with our late arrival. The site is well sheltered from wind. Recommended.

    Disliked: 

    Not much to say here - One of the showers in the gents ran a bit cold - but I'm sure they's get that fixed soon. We were overrun with midges - but that's not the sites fault - probably time of year. A little road noise but no big deal.

Would 100% recommend Pennine View.14/06/2021

Reviewer's country: United KingdomCaroline B.Confirmed

  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    This was a beautifully kept park. From immaculate trimmed hedge rows to perfectly cleaned bathroom facilities. There is always staff floating about and where all very friendly. The outdoor bar area was lovely and had beautiful attention to detail with the table decoration and lights. The children's park was very tidy and good quality fixtures. The park appeared to be secure with barriers and lock codes.

    Disliked: 

    There was nothing I didn't like about Pennine View. The only ever so slightly disappointing thing was that the children's park was quite small and didnt have much equipment.

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.
