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 clean well maintained site. Facilities are top notch. Great location for walks. Beautiful walk through woods and along a disused railway 50m down the road, even saw a red squirrel. There is on on site restaurant (not site run). We didnt try it but it looked good.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing really. Was given a pitch with the camper vans by mistake, in a tent camper van are noisy. But we could have moved if we wanted.

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.
