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.

  • Liked: 

    Facilities were very clean and site is well maintained.

    Disliked: 

    There was a group of caravans touring together - who had other people join them. Very loud talking, shouting and kids playing until well after midnight, we woke up to what looked like a travelling site. No oversight from staff of who was arriving/paying guests.

    Situated close to penrith and ullswater

    Disliked: 

    Turned up to "that'll be £(such amount) please!!!!"
    Not a "hello, how are you?"
    Everyone there it was like a scene from the walking dead. Spend the extra money and go somewhere where people are actually polite.

Handy, quiet and friendly owners 30/07/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Lee M. Mobile phone icon Confirmed

  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Close to the motorway so straightforward to get there.
    Water and waste close to each pitch (serviced) so no need for a waste hog if you have sufficient waste piping.
    Quiet and tranquil location.

    Disliked: 

    Don't use the postcode as it takes you to the wrong place as we ended up on a lane by the recycling centre.
    Pitches are awkward to get on when there is another camper on the opposite pitch

Local attractions

Tymparon Hall is ten minutes both from Pooley Bridge and its Bronze Age standing stones, and Lake Ullswater for steamboat trips, sailing, diving and scaling England's third highest mountain Helvellyn to the lake's south. At its west, walk through Lake District woodland to reach Aria Force waterfall.

The Rheged Visitor Centre is a couple of miles from Tymparon: head here for a six-storey high cinema screen, shops, cafés using Cumbrian produce, indoor and outdoor play areas, and family-friendly activities and events throughout the year.

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.
