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.

Please note: This site does not have a toilet block.

Peaceful and scenic.

We have just returned from a wonderful 5 night stay. What a real gem of a site. The wardens were brilliant, very welcoming and working hard keeping the site tidy. The peace and tranquillity made for a perfect stay and the bird life was exceptional. Please do not even consider building a toilet block, it would completely ruin the site, but more serviced pitches would be a real advantage.. More serviced pitches should be a priority for all sites especially during the present crisis to help social distancing and keep people safe. The site and wardens are a real credit for the club.

It’s Good for stop over or staying longer to explore the area

A great site if you are just stopping for the night or going to stay longer to explore, there is a great dog walking area through the forest and on site. TV reception on our plot was poor (picture kept breaking up). Small village down the road called Armathwaite has 2 pubs we tried the dukes and found the food and service was very good and some good walks from the village.

Perfect peace

This was our first visit but won't be our last! We loved this site and its peaceful location. We'd like to echo previous reviewers who have said that a toilet/shower block definitely isn't needed. Even though our water pump had broken before we arrived, we wouldn't have wished the site to be any different. The running of the site is a credit to Isobel and Philip and they were both very helpful and sympathetic to the problems we were experiencing. Thank you for a lovely stay.
