Last minute booking!

Should have been in Cornwall but due to being in tier 3, had to cancel. As the van was all packed up booked this CL the morning as we arrived in the afternoon. Very pleasantly surprised nicely laid out with views over the river, quiet and peaceful,serviced pitches, hard standing with grass surround. Walks down to the river but was very muddy underfoot. Maybe a bit isolated as have to travel a few miles but lots to see in the area. The site changed hands when we were there so wether things will change on site not sure. Thought was very reasonably priced for a service pitch.

Excellent Site

Lovely, clean & tidy site with outstanding views. Owner John was friendly and helpful, as were our fellow caravanners. Each pitch has electric hook-up and water supply...everything else we had with us! We had a lovely takeaway meal from The Station pub in Caton - this appears to be the nearest pub, as the 2 in Hornby have now closed down. But the warm welcome was well worth travelling the extra couple of miles. We had an amazing, tranquil, relaxing 3 days and will be returning in the near future.

Loved it

Stayed Sept 2019 for 6 nights. Access not a problem with a bit of care. Single track lane but most of it just a cul-de-sac to the farm so no traffic. Competence in levelling may be needed. Gravel hardstanding with grass between pitches. Water and grey waste on most pitches. Very rural. Very quiet. Lovely position above River Lune. A drive to shops and pubs. Beautiful area generally.

Breathtaking views without loos

The views are wonderful. The site is so tranquil and tidy, although my husband would have liked the weeds removed on each hardstanding. Just a note of detail he said. Be careful on the last half mile on the single track as it's tight but the end result is worth it. Unfortunately for us the last part of our experience was a real drag.... Flies, flies and more flies. Outside, inside and anywhere you care to mention. Fly screens, closed doors, nothing deterred the critters from our van. Maybe it was the pitch, maybe the time of year, but by the end we were demented by them.

Highly recommended site

Stayed here April 2019, beautiful site, I think enough has been said already about the views. Again as mentioned in other reviews the site is on a hillside however If you can pick one of the 2 right hand side pitches as these seem more level, there were caravans on the other side and they seemed to have no issues getting level, my motorhome needed 1 ramp on the front right to get near enough for us. Having drainage on each pitch and water points on all but the right side which shared one should be a blueprint for all CL’s as it makes life so much easier, and at £14 a night inc electric it’s a bargain. The access road is very narrow with a tight turn after a bridge, I was towing a car however and had no,problem, as the title says I highly recommend this site and I will stay again in the future.
