General

  • Peaceful, relaxing, sheltered and friendly park near Penrith
  • A short journey to Ullswater and two miles from Rheged Visitor Centre
  • Parallel to a spacious farmhouse garden overlooking mature trees

Off to pretty Penrith to access the lovely Lake District? Feel posh with a pitch at Tymparon Hall, set in the grounds of an eighteenth century manor house.

The peaceful and friendly park is sheltered to the east by the old Penrith to Keswick railway embankment, running parallel to a roomy farmhouse garden overlooking a summer garden with colourful flowers and landscaped with mature trees. It's in prime national park exploring land, four miles from Junction 40 of the M6 near Penrith, on the doorstep of the Eden Valley and a ten-minute drive from Lake Ullswater.

Showers, loos and chemical disposal are available on site. The local pub, an old-school inn, is about ten minutes' walk or two minutes' drive away; the nearest supermarket is within four miles.

Please note

Single-sex bookings of 3 or more people (couples and immediate family members excepted) are not permitted via Pitchup.com.

Clean quiet site. 16/09/2017

    Nice quiet site.

    Disliked: 

    There were no signposts on arrival so didn't know where to go for reception, amenities or where to pitch. The toilets needed a code to access which we didn't get until the following morning. Also a long way to Ullswater with no available information on any walks or potential routes from the site when reception did open. Individual electric, water and drain per double pitch which is great as long as you have all the appropriate pipes and connectors.

    The walk to the nearest pub with our dog was quite scarey due to speeding motorists in a 30 zone part of the way. (Not the sites fault)

    Lovely clean site. Clean toilet/shower block. Perfect location with being close to the M6.

    Disliked: 

    We felt out of place. We felt that the site is more suited to the older generation. Lack of facilities for young children to do.

Pleasant site but needs information notice boards at entrance. 26/08/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom sara_d992894 Confirmed

  • Liked: 

    Situated in the fields adjoining a beautiful farmhouse with lovely gardens this was a peaceful spot perfect for access to the Lake District. The price was good and the people were extremely friendly and helpful.

    Disliked: 

    We arrived very late in the evening, after dark, and there were no signs to tell us where to go or if we had a designated pitch. Also the toilet and shower block had a combination lock and so we had to wait until morning for access!

At its west, walk through Lake District woodland to reach Aria Force waterfall.

This is Eden Valley land too, along with lots of opps for walks, bike rides and pony riding in the valley, Greystoke Forest, around the Lakeland Fells and back at Ullswater.

A little further afield but still easily accessible from the campsite, Hadrian's Wall and Carlisle are both excellent options for days out.
