Why stay here ...

Englethwaite Hall Club Campsite 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 Campsite 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.

Peaceful site for a quiet trip

Englethwaite Hall Club Campsite
We stayed for 2 nights on our way home from a longer trip in the NE. The site has no toilets or showers so we booked a serviced pitch, which was well-maintained and made things a lot easier. The site is clean and tidy, the views are fab and the wardens are friendly. It’s possible to walk to the pub from the site but takes about 25 minutes at a decent pace. There weren’t many families staying on the site. We are a 30-something couple and we found it to be perfect for us. We had a lovely stay and we will be returning.

Two night stopover

Englethwaite Hall Club Campsite
On our way to Dumfries and Galloway. First time here, recommended by a friend as a cracker of a site. Bumpy road access, but fine if you keep your speed down! The site is a gem, despite having no facilities block. Lovely and quiet and the pitches are well spaced and placed. All really well maintained and presented. A credit to the site stall. There are a couple of nice pubs in the adjacent village, both of which serve food. What’s not to like?

A little gem

Englethwaite Hall Club Campsite
We stopped here for just one night on the way back from travelling around Scotland. It is a great location, in lovely countryside but yet not far off the M6. The grounds are beautiful, spacious pitches and most quite private. A slight problem was that some pitches were too shady because of the trees, making it quite dark. For our two lively dogs it was heaven. A large enclosed field where they could run around and a nice walk through the woods and along a track to the Greyhound Pub that was dog friendly. We would echo a previous review that the grey waste for motorhomes was very difficult to access (ours comes out in the centre of the van) meaning that none of it actually went in the drain! But that was only a small irritation. The staff were helpful and kept the grounds in tip top condition and a lovely touch was the Fairy Glen. We will definitely stop here again if travelling north-such good value for money.

Lovely site in a great location

Englethwaite Hall Club Campsite
I wanted to explore the North of the Lakes and found this site. It's a great location, with the train line at the end of the entrance road. Although the actual station is a few miles away in either direction. One day we did a beautiful walk along the Eden Valley to Wetheral, a pretty little village with a lovely pub for lunch. As we approached the river we were lucky enough to see 2 otters playing in the river. We could not believe our luck. Another day we jumped on a train at nearby Armathwaite to Skipton in the Yorkshire Dales. The journey was amazing as we travelled through the pennines across to Skipton. I have done the journey many times in a car, but on a train you get a whole different perspective. Loved our stay at Englethwaite Hall. There seemed to be 2 sets of wardens, all were really friendly and helpful. They did an amazing job of keeping the grounds beautiful. Loved the fairy garden, a nice little touch.

Lovely site

Englethwaite Hall Club Campsite
Very pretty site, wardens keep the site clean and tidy and the grounds are pretty and well kept. The wardens just seemed to keep the site effortlessly and quietly got on with their job. We loved it here. Approach road a bit narrow but taken carefully it was no problem.
