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.

Great site but need to work on customer care

Englethwaite Hall Caravan Club Site
This is a lovely site, no doubt about that. Yes they have no toilet or showers but that's fine as we were aware of it. It was peaceful the views are lovely and great dog walks esp the mushrooms and fairy doors. However, I became extremely poorly on the morning that we were due to leave. I had a migraine and sickness, now if you have ever had a migraine and sickness you understand just how awful these are. More so as the sickness triggered my atrial fibrillation so I was also trying to get my heart rate down. Especially in a hot motorhome. The husband was trying his best to keep me cool and hydrated whilst the kids entertained themselves and tried to stay quiet. My husband went to the office to explain whats occuring hoping we could stay a bit longer even if just until the next lot of visitors arrived. We were in a right pickle. Only to be told, you have one hour to get off the pitch. He explained about my heart, but it didn't seem to sink in. Finally it eased enough for us to leave. Another lady came and spoke to us and said that the they rung the person and they didn't realise they had booked tonight and we could stay. However she also quoted well you have outstayed your welcome on more than one occasion. This was at 3.45. my heart rate was still very raised although my migraine had subsided. I felt very lethargic and weak. But to hear those words outstayed your welcome made me feel like we didn't want to stay another night. There as no empathy or sympathy from either of those we spoke to. This wasn't planned, I couldn't avoid being this ill. We gave them ten pounds with thanks as we left but that didn't seem appreciated either. So needless to say we won't be back. We wouldn't want to ourstay out welcome again now would we?

Lovely campsite

Englethwaite Hall Caravan Club Site
We've been to Englethwaite Hall a few times as we enjoy the peaceful location. Great for walking the dog around the small lakes. This was a hot and sunny weekend so the shaded walk was very nice indeed. The site has always been very peaceful but unfortunately this time there was a family (s) with young children whose parents obviously decided it was okay for them to keep playing right outside our door, understandably driving our dog mad. We asked them four times if they would stop but with no effect. As they kept climbing over the fence, made from sticks, which the site have erected to obviously stop people cutting through this way, one actually caused some damage. Not the wardens fault at all but a shame that a site that seems set up for a peaceful getaway, certainly was not during our visit.

What a great site

Englethwaite Hall Caravan Club Site
We wanted a local site to finish off our walk along Hadrian's Wall and this site was in exactly the right place, just south of Carlisle. Very clean and tidy with level pitches. Really helpful wardens and managed to avoid squishing local hedgehog on both evenings. Colourful rhodadendron bushes in full flower were delightful. May be no shower block but more than adequate water/rubbish bin placement. Visited local Lannercost Priory for delicious lunch and afternoon walk. Carlisle Castle is also well worth a visit, very informative military museum. Really enjoyed a quiet respite from business of getting ready. Dave and Alison
