This well equipped and very quiet CL has everything you could wish for with stunning views over the the adjacent countryside, EHU, toilet and shower, and a well managed waste disposal system. Mrs Jackson is an extremely welcoming and helpful host; especially as somehow we managed to leave the money for the next site in an envelope in her dust bin, which she retrieved and returned to us. The site is well placed for visiting Appleby and Kirkby Steven. We would definitely recommend a stay. If there is one tiny criticism, it is the ground is a little uneven and you may require wheel chocks to level up your accommodation. Or you could book a stay in one of Mrs Jacksons static caravans.
One of the best views from any CL we've stayed on. The pitch was quite sloping but we were allocated some hardstanding which helped. There are plans to level the field next year which will make it easier for motorhomes. All facilities spotless and Mrs Jackson very eager to help. Beautiful walks in the area: Rutter Falls were in full flow and quite dramatic. The walk from Great Ormside to Appleby is lovely, but very muddy, along the River Eden. Sadly the weather was bad so we cut our stay short by a day but will definitely revisit so that we can climb some of the fells in the area. The people we met on walks were extremely friendly and helpful, including one kind man who even let us park our MH on his drive when we expressed concern about where to leave it! The Courtyard Café in Appleby is worth a visit (outside seating area) and Fish and Chips eaten overlooking the Riven Eden doesn't get much better.
Just stayed the weekend, nice location, west facing so nice sunsets. Clean & presentable shower & toilet with hand basin. Friendly welcome from Mrs Jackson. Follow the directions given on instructions as all other routes not suitable for a caravan or large vehicle. Shall be returning. Thank you.
We stayed on our way back from the Lakes to the Northeast, found the site very easily the other side of the A66 and through Appleby a lovely market town and a nice place to visit. The site was very clean, facilities in the little WC and shower cabin were good and easy to get to. We were welcomed by the friendly owner on arrival. The views are to die for overlooking the Eden valley, not a sound to be heard except birds. just wonderful and we will be visiting again. one tip, be careful as you approach because if you miss the entrance to the CL you have a long lane to go down before you can turn back. Its worth a look on google maps to see it plus castle heights is a house, not a castle. Highly recommended.
Beautiful views and so peaceful especially when there is no mobile phone signal. Lots of footpaths very near the site. We never used the facilities so can't comment of them. There was gales during our stay but we seemed to be sheltered on pitch 1. Look forward to visiting again in better weather to really take in the views and relaxation.
