Why stay here ...

Englethwaite Hall Club Site is a tranquil oasis scattered with rhododendrons from the garden of the former Old Hall. Located in the Eden Valley of Carlisle, the caravan park is set against a backdrop of the lovely High Stand Forest. Recent reports show that the number of red squirrels in the area has increased, so you may be lucky to see some during your visit. The site now offers a viewing hide from which you can watch red squirrels.

Come for a night, stay for a week. That's what happens to those using the Englethwaite Hall Club Site as a stopover during the drive to Scotland on the M6. The area is especially popular for walkers because of its convenient footpath access to uncrowded landscapes and scenic beauty - the Eden Valley riverside walk is a special treat. For added activities such as a swimming pool, cinema, restaurants and pubs, the nearby town of Carlisle won't disappoint. The town can be reached by steam train, along a line which passes through scenic countryside and waterfalls. The Settle to Carlisle Railway runs right past the bottom of the site driveway. In the summer special steam train events pass the site twice a week and visitors can stand right by the track to enjoy the atmosphere and take photographs. Carlisle Castle and the famous Hadrian's Wall are only a short drive away. The site is a perfect choice for those with dogs, with many local dog-friendly pubs. A serene gem surrounded by views of the Lakeland fells and wild flower scattered country lanes, the caravan site offers an excellent escape.

The site is quiet during the school holidays, making it the ideal choice for those seeking a peaceful and relaxing holiday.

Service pitches are available.

Gem of a site

Stayed for three nights over the bonfire night weekend as the site is in woods with no view of fireworks to scare our dogs. Having said that, the site is brilliant if you like woodland walking. There are miles of tracks in the adjacent High Stand Wood. The nearest pub and shop are about 30 mins walk along forest and farm tracks (but opening hours are limited.) The site itself is well laid out amongst the trees with plenty of water points. The wardens were very friendly and helpful. We really like these CAMC no facilities sites, get locations but quieter than regular sites.

busy busy

spent six days on this site, no further comment required as to other reviewers,apart from the constant stream of one nighters made it impossible to get any peace and quiet, probably more peaceful on the services on the m6.

An absolutely stunning site.

My first time visiting this site. Fantastic site. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and the facilities are first class. No toilet block, but that deals with the constant progression to and from that you see in other places. For a dog owner, this site ranks as one of the best. Outstanding dog field on site to let them run free, and direct access from the site to the neighbouring forest offers huge off lead dog walks. I loved it here and will definitely return.
