Pennine View Caravan Park: Grass pitch

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…

    Loved the campers kitchen. Lots of clean pots and pans. Use of induction hob for 30 minutes was £1… ample time to make pasta and pesto or any other quick meal. Kettle and toaster. A seating area with dining table. Also lots of USB charging points in the kitchen for backpackers phones, who don't have electric hook ups. Liked the main large shower block which was exceptionally clean and well kept at all times. The user controls the shower temperature on this site, which is great. We hate preset showers cos they're always way too hot. Handy loos and shower in the camping field which were raised up and had a covered decked area so you weren't trailing mud into and out of the loos. Very peaceful site and really close to the river. Kirkby Stephen is literally on the doorstep so very handy for supplies. It's also great for exploring Yorkshire, Cumbria and Durham. The site is small, clean, well cared for and the staff are really friendly and always have a smile. We stayed on EHU camping pitch.

    The site was easy to find on a decent A road. Pitch was level and plenty of space. Site was kept tidy and facilities were clean. Excellent location, just outside Kirkby Steven, which had a big Co-op, cafes, takeaways and basically everything you might need. Beautiful riverside walks, straight off the site. Excellent pubs in Ravenstonedale and Nateby, a short drive away. The Engine Shed on the site is also great; friendly, cosy and serves ‘street food’ in the evening. Sometimes a fire pit was available in the outdoor area, and there’s a comfy shelter to sit out in with friends. Wardens were very welcoming and helpful. When the power went off on the site for a few hours they were extremely helpful, giving us updates and practical help. We’re planning to come back next year.

    Disliked: 

    The toilet and shower block were a bit dated and water temperature was variable. We were informed that the whole block is going to be updated over the winter break. There is some road noise. We found it intrusive at first, but got used to it and barely noticed it by the second day, and we were in the pitch closest to the road!. The road isn’t visible from the site, because the site is in a disused quarry (?) several metres below the level of the road.

Local attractions

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.
