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.

A wee gem with a Fairy Glen

Englethwaite Hall Caravan Club Site
Just back from 16 nights at Englethwaite Hall. Had a lovely peaceful stay altho the weather was poor we still managed to get out and about. The grounds were particulary beautiful despite us missing the best of the blooms. beautifully kept grounds by the wardens and the volunteeers. Grass immaculate, flower beds beautifully kept altho not appreciated by some members whose vehicles ran over the lovely slate edging of a new bed near the entrance. Would also like to note the lack of observation of 5mph speed limit. Would also like to mention here how difficult it was to get a continuous booking. Seems that one nighter motorhomers really put a spanner in the works ....perhaps a minimum stay of 2/3 nights might allow long time members a chance of at least a week......Loyalty towards longstanding members like us perhaps. Disappointed that we did not get a seasonal pitch yet again. The wardens were lovely and friendly and helpful.....hope they are still there next season. Hope the Friday night fish and chips will be back on the menu to make a perfect stay. Phone signal and wifi very random and unreliable.

A hidden gem!

Englethwaite Hall Caravan Club Site
This site was a 2 night stop for us as we were travelling up to Scotland. Wow, what a wonderful site, beautiful surroundings and well kept grounds, the wardens and staff here are doing a great job of keeping this site nice, keep up the good work. Lovely to be in the woodlands, peace and quiet and lots of wildlife about. Just wonderful. We would recommend this site and we would definitely return if we are travelling in this direction again.

Such a wonderful site

Englethwaite Hall Caravan Club Site
Just back from a two week stay. We have been members for over 40 years and this was our first time at Englethwaite Hall site. What a wonderful place to stay. The site was extremely well kept and is a tribute to the all of the work put in by the site managers and volunteers, all of whom were very friendly and hard working. The layout is superb with ample room on each pitch. Good to find that site does not have a facilities block as we always use our own, but has everything else that is needed. Lovely walks both on on off site. The road outside the site was generally very quiet and suitable for taking ourselves and dog for a walk. The site is very quite and really is a nature lovers paradise. Many of the pitches are very sheltered but you did not have to walk far for lovely views. Hope the club keeps this site as it is and we will definitely be returning.

Up There With The Best

Englethwaite Hall Caravan Club Site
It's been a few years since we last stayed at this site but we were not disappointed. Peace, quiet, back to nature are all words/phrases that spring to mind and are all up our street. Super friendly and helpful wardens who work hard to keep the site beautifully maintained. Plenty of walking from the site - direct access into the forest and a decent dog walk for the early morning/late night excursions. Highly recommend Duke of York at Armathwaite for food - newly refurbished and new owners. Easy access from the M6 making it an ideal stopover but recommend you make time to stay longer.

Don’t miss the Fariy Dell

Englethwaite Hall Caravan Club Site
First time on this site. Very friendly and helpful temp wardens. Gave me loads of advice about the local pubs and which ones had room for a M/H in the car park. Don’t miss the Fairy Dell is really great, a lot of work has gone into this. Sorry to say we didn’t see any Red Squirrels but glad to say we didn’t see any Grays either. Lovely walks in the woods. Just wished we had time to stay longer. Beautiful display of flowers around reception.
