General

  • Peaceful Eden Valley site with spectacular views of the Pennines
  • A 20-minute drive from Penrith and the Lake District National Park
  • Across the road from a pub serving food Friday to Sunday evenings

Tempted to head away on a break that's full of mountain views, scenic explores and plenty of scudding across lakes? Make your way to Crossfell Caravan Park, a family-friendly site 15 minutes’ drive from the Cumbrian town of Penrith – you’ll think you’re in Eden.

And you will be: the site’s in the spectacular Eden Valley, five minutes from the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and 20 minutes from the Lake District National Park. Unsurprisingly, this is a fab spot for rambling wanders, horseback treks and challenging cycles – there are loads of hiking trails in the Pennines and the Lake District, and horse riding and bike hire are within 15 minutes of the site.

Filling up on eats may be a priority on active hols and that's handily sorted round here: there’s breakfast catering on site for large groups (of around 12 people) and barbecues are welcome on site too. The local pub just across the road in the village of Ousby is open for dinner and drinks from Friday to Sunday evenings from 6pm, serving meals from 6pm to 8.30pm.

After long days of hiking, biking and riding through hills and dales, return to base to warm up chilled bodies and ease aching muscles in the hot showers, then settle in for quiet evenings soaking up views of the Pennines and the Cumbrian countryside.

  • Liked: 

    Loved that it is a quiet relaxed site, in a small village with superb views of either the Lake District or the Pennines.
    It was good value, toilet and shower clean.
    Ideally located for cycling in the much overlooked Eden valley.
    Local pub directly opposite site entrance.

    Friendly and helpful owner
    Large and nice bathroom, only 2 bathroom for each (male & female).
    Indoor washing up area
    Pub just in front but open only on weekends.

    Disliked: 

    Toilet are not far from the camp site, but you have to cross a road to get there, and felt like a different place.
    It could work well to have a little table or shelves in the bathroom.

Local attractions

This close to the Lake District, not spending any time on a lake would surely lead to a rather sinking feeling… There are lots of options nearby for boating trips, starting with Ullswater Steamers, 25 minutes’ drive away at Pooley Bridge, before puttering along to Keswick on Derwentwater 40 minutes away and the Lake Coniston gondola just under an hour and a half from base.

Prefer those lake experiences to be had from dry land? The site’s less than 10 minutes from Blencarn Lake and its 15 acres of fly fishing – a lucky catch for some…

When back on dry land, sweet treats await: Abbott Lodge Jersey Ice Cream is 25 minutes from base, where kids can spend time at the indoor and outdoor playgrounds while grownups tuck in to a healthy helping of homemade ice cream.

Want to pencil in some more unusual outings? The Derwent Pencil Museum is 40 minutes away and (not to put too fine a point on it) comes highly recommended by the site team. If that doesn’t do it for the gang, try a visit to Trotters World of Animals, 50 minutes away, for hundreds of species – as well as bird of prey displays – or nab a ticket for a movie at the Rheged Centre (20 minutes), home of a six-storey-high cinema screen.

Must see

  • The Rheged Centre (8.7 miles)
  • Dalemain Historic House & Gardens (10.4 miles)
  • High Force Waterfall (16.7 miles)

National Trust

  • Acorn Bank Garden and Watermill (4.2 miles)
