  • Liked: 

    For a family site it was very peaceful, apart from our kids! Staff were friendly and helpful. There is plenty to do in the surrounding areas or even a day trip on the train to Carlisle which the kids loved.

    Disliked: 

    The local farms all use the road past the campsite. Some of them late at night or really early in the morning as you'd expect from farmers. We thought it would be a problem for sleeping. It after the first night we didn't notice.

  • Liked: 

    The facilities, showers and toilets were good and really clean. The pitch was in a good location and was flat and dry. The location is great with an easy walk into Austwick and 10 minute drive to Settle. Well organised.

    Disliked: 

    Didn't dislike anything about this site, although it can be noisy at times, this is down to other guests and no fault of the owners.

Local attractions

Orcaber Caravan Camping Site is also near the famed Ingleton Waterfalls Trail for woodland-based walks among spectacular northern scenery, and within easy driving distance of the waterfalls, stalactites and tours of the spectacular White Scar Caves, the longest show cave in the UK.

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.
