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.

Like visiting an old friend.....

We have just returned from our 4th visit to the wonderful site that is Englethwaite Hall. We can never find fault here and would go as far as saying, for us and what we want and need out of a break away, this ticks every box and remains a firm favourite. It was nice to see last years wardens are still here also and they remembered us also. They are the friendliest we have met on the network and nothing is too much trouble. Reception has restricted opening hours which are clearly advertised on the door. The small amount if groceries in offer is more than adequate for those forgotten basics or a treat. The only little snippet of negativity we have is that roadway near the entrance / exit is slippy underfoot. This is owing to the tree cover and obviously gets covered in tree sap and probably never gets entirely dry. We were in good solid walking boots and both noted the lack of grip. Not sure how it could be facilitated but a good pressure / jet wash to remove the grime and sap would be beneficial and make the potentially hazardous surface, less so or perhaps a good prune of the trees to enable natural daylight through to dry the road off. We do love this site, the many dogs walks, access to villages, towns and the county city is very easy as is the 10 mins drive off the M6.

Flying visit

Used this site for a stopover on the way to Bunree in Scotland. We had a small mishap and needed to get a front and rear pad for the Alko stabiliser, we contacted a few caravan spares places but either they didn't have it or were closing soon, however we came across The Larches, under caravan spares Cumbria, aka Google. Which was about 12 miles away, we arrived at the 'Larches caravan site', which had a board outside with 'Caravan spares' written in chalk! This we found to be a prefab type building absolutely crammed with spares, and this wonderful lady had exactly what we needed. Thank you Larches lady. Hope this info may help a fellow caravaner. Owe, the site.. beautifully kept. But beware of the damn fly's they'll eat you alive if you let them. Stopped over on route back to Wiltshire, the damn fly's we waiting.

Off the beaten track!

Arrived here on 3rd July for a 4 night stay on our return journey home to Surrey from Fort William. I can see why so many people only use it as a stopover due to the location of the motorway, but what a waste for just a stop over. The site is peaceful & well laid out, in what were the gardens of an old Hall. The majority of the pitches were very big with ample space for awning, car & still close enough to be sociable with your neighbours, all of which were lovely. Once again it was one of these sites where the site office is not open all day & you are requested to pop your membership card through the door, find your pitch & return to pay later. There is a dog walk which is fully fenced so your four legged friend doesn't wander off plus other walks straight from the site so furry paws are well catered for. Not far away is Lanercost Priory which is worth a visit plus there is a very nice tea room where the 'Bark 'n' Brew' makes all it's visitors very welcome. Hadrian's wall was just up the road so you can go off & pretend to be Caesar! Carlisle Castle was also just up the road & when we visited it was the last day that the Poppies were on display. It was an easy site to just sit, have a brew (or some other light refreshment!) & watch the world go by or read a book. Very peaceful. The wardens did have a cat Zorro which made regular appearances to the amusement of all the dogs. I enjoyed my short stay but am unsure whether there was sufficient activities in the immediate area to keep me occupied for a fortnight.

Peaceful and relaxing

Unfortunately had only booked a one night stay here but we will definitely be returning. Lovely peaceful site, more suited to adults which was perfect for us, maybe not so much for families. Staff were helpful and friendly. Definitely on our list for future visits.

Worthy of a visit

We visited here with our motorhome for one night in May 2018 on our return home from the Western Isles of Scotland. The site is so peaceful and although surrounded by trees, we chose a pitch in the open area near to the office and had a lovely restful overnight stay. The dog walk and exercise area received a paws up from our pooch. It certainly met our expectations and we hope to visit it again in future to enjoy a longer stay.
