Easter Family Stay

Heights Castle
Stayed here this easter 2024. We had a great stay with our Kids and dog. We didn't have a problem with the single track road leading up to the site it does have a few passing places and it's not a busy road. The shower cabin and toilet certainly did the job for us. Communication between Samantha and us leading up to us arriving was great. Easy access to Appleby and Kirkby Stephen.

Lovely peaceful site

Heights Castle
Had a lovely 3 night stay here recently and would definitely visit again. The site is next to a very quiet single track road with lovely far reaching views and very well kept surroundings. Lovely walks, friendly owner, perfect for a relaxing peaceful break.

Stunning views of the beautiful scenery.

Heights Castle
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.

Stunning view from pitch

Heights Castle
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.
