Greenhowe Caravans: View from caravan site

General

  • On the edge of woodland with views of Lakeland hills from the grounds
  • A five-minute drive to Dungeon Ghyll Force and 10 to Skelwith Bridge
  • Walks on famed trails of Langdale Pikes accessible from the park

Looking to lay your head in the Lake District for a hol wandering around famed fells and tarns? Venture out into some of the best scenery in Britain from your comfy Cumbria spot at Greenhowe Caravans, less than a mile from Great Langdale.

This site surrounded by legendary Lakeland hills is in a quiet and secluded area edged by woodland and with walks starting right outside its gates. Set off for the Langdale Pikes past craggy Whitegill Ravine – perhaps to tackle Pavey Ark, Pike Of Stickle and Harrison Stickle, around a 50-minute walk away – or take on longer treks to poetically named fells like Crinkle Crags and Pike O’Blisco around two and a half hours away on foot.

Seeking something less strenuous on the legs? Well-known waterfall Dungeon Ghyll Force and the flatter paths around it are accessible on an easy 25-minute stroll. Designated drivers might be pleased to note that you can also walk to the Sticklebarn bar, half a mile away on foot…

Got clothes muddy on meanders through the hills? A laundry with hot and cold water, washing machines, tumble dryers, iron and ironing board are at the park (just pick up tokens for the machines in reception).

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Wouldn't stay again01/10/2022

  • Europa 2 bedroom static caravan
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Location was lovely and peaceful, campsite quiet, altho' not busy when we were there.

    Bathroom was a decent size and the shower was lovely!

    Disliked: 

    Caravan was not particularly clean when we arrived, we had to clean the fridge and wash all the dishes and crockery befoe we used them.
    It's a van used for pets (we had a dog with us) so you don't expect things to be perfect but there was no hoover so cleaning properly is not easy, disappointing in this respect.
    There was a smell of gas in the boiler cupboard and the plumbing was a bit Heath Robinson (kitchen sink emptied onto the ground!).
    Wifi poor, limited mobile signal (one of us had. the other hadn't)

    Caravan was very spacious and clean. Lovely quiet locaton. The owner Graham was always helpful whenever I asked him anything. Great walks with lovely views from the site so no need to drive. We didn't switch the tv on so can't comment on that. Phone signal and wifi were poor but thats also a good thing as its nice to disconnect for a while. i would recommend this place to friends and family.

    Disliked: 

    It is a very steep drive up to the camp.

    Nothing. Owner rude and unwelcoming. Do not attempt to stay here unless you have a good car as the entrance is up an incredibly steep hill. This should be advertised

    Disliked: 

    Email sent to owner 5th august which I’ve had no reply. - Sorry I drove away without staying but I wish after what happened the last time I tried to come, you’d have been honest with me about the incline of the hill to get to the site. I have a phobia of driving up steep hills, I wouldn’t have booked the site had this been made clear jn any of your marketing. Sorry but I hired a car this weekend and didn’t feel comfortable leaving my car on the hillside at the entrance away from where we’d be staying. My daughter has bad anxiety and said that she saw you shaking your head and didn’t feel comfortable now maybe it wasn’t on purpose but I felt We didn’t get the warmest of welcomes and you appeared annoyed that I was saying that my car couldn’t get up the hill. I know you won’t refund me as you made that clear the last time I couldn’t get in touch with you and had to abandon the trip.

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Of course, it's all about the walks on a Lake District trip… but that's not to say there aren't alternative activities and attractions to seek out as well.

Bounce over to the Beatrix Potter Gallery, 25 minutes’ drive away, for a look at the author and artist’s illustrations displayed in a 17th-century cottage, or wander to Wray Castle, a National Trust property, to admire the neo-gothic structure and have a mosey around the grounds.

Itching to get out on the water? Paddleboarding courses are to be had at Keswick (a 55-minute drive) and the Ullswater steamers are within an hour's drive. And if you'd rather get your kicks rock climbing, the Langdale Boulders are a mere 20-minute walk from Greenhowe.

Must see

  • Dove Cottage and the Wordsworth Museum (2.5 miles)
  • Rydal Mount and Gardens (3.8 miles)
  • Beatrix Potter Gallery (6.1 miles)
