General

  • Small, peaceful and family-run site next to the Forest of Bowland
  • In a walkers' paradise near the Yorkshire Three Peaks
  • Spectacular scenery with horses and sheep grazing close by

These routes are made for walking… Orcaber Caravan and Camping Site is in the Three Peaks area of the Yorkshire Dales National Park for hikes up Whernside, Ingleborough and Pen-y-Ghent, and right next to the wanders and strides of the Forest of Bowland, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Many more walks and footpaths start directly from the site; get a map from the site information office to show you on your way.

Based at the village of Austwick and five miles from the market town of Settle on the edge of the national park, Orcaber is a peaceful, small and family-run site, set among outstanding scenery with horses and sheep grazing in the neighbouring fields. Dogs are welcome (on leads on site at all times please) and a big field with stream is allocated as a dog walk area on site.

Pitches at Orcaber are large, flat and well drained. Facilities include separate ladies' and gents' showers with plenty of hot water; toilets; a freezer with coolbox ice packs, and an info room with details of local attractions, events – and those many local walks.

Please note

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

A charge of £0.50 (€0.56) applies for the use of shower.

Fantastic site in a great location with the best showers! 01/13/2019

    Easy to find just off the A65 and well signed. Neil, the owner, came out to greet me in the dark and went through the formalities.

    The pitches are very spacious and flat with water and electricity right next to the pitch. It rained heavy through the night and there were no puddles around either.

    The showers are fantastic. Very warm (I like a hot shower too) and they stay warm, not hot and cold like some places and with plenty of pressure. The shower/toilet was warm too and with a heated floor! Exceptionally clean too.

    This is a great site in a great location with everything as good as it could be. I am looking forward to the next stay. Overall everything was first class.

    This campsite is set in spectacular scenery with great access to walks in the countryside. Lovely pub just a mile away down the lane. Toilets and showers are amazing- underfloor heating perfect for winter stays, in pristine condition and plenty of hot water for a 50p charge. Best campsite bathroom facilities we’ve ever seen!

Great site, deserves the high rankings.... 01/07/2019

    Level, well drained site, beautiful all round views and no shortage of great walks and bike rides on the doorstep through stunning and quiet scenery.

    Site is roughly half hardstanding and half grass. Generous pitch size, brand new toilet/shower block, probably the best I've come across, which people respect and keep clean. Friendly, relaxed owner, easy to contact and nothing too much trouble. General lack of 'Do This, Don't Do This' signs everywhere, people used common sense so they didn't seem required!

    Children are welcome, although there is no specific play area, shop or games room etc. This is much more a simple traditional touring and camping site than a family 'holiday park', which personally I like.

    Disliked: 

    Just the 50p shower charge.... I don't begrudge the money and never used the full time available, it's more the inconvenience of having the right change and remembering to take it with you!

Local attractions

Also recommended by the Orcaber team are the Settle to Carlisle railway line, through 73 miles of spectacular countryside through the Yorkshire Dales and the North Pennines and passing splendid Ribblehead viaduct. The limestone formation of Malham Cove, a famed Yorkshire Dales beauty spot, is also a popular local spot.

Yet more walks, hikes and heaps more spectacular scenery are at the Lake District National Park, about an hour's drive away.
