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.

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

Lovely and peaceful

Englethwaite Hall Club Campsite
Small and peaceful site with nature right on your doorstep, the site had lots of bird feeders and plenty of birdsong as a result, this site is a must for animal lovers with Red squirrels onsite although the hide needs updating. The staff were very friendly and welcoming when we arrived which is nice to see. This is a very relaxing site just outside of the Lake District and would make a lovely base to visit from. We only stayed one night on the way down from the highlands but we wish we had stayed much longer, we will definitely be returning for another longer stay.

Perfect site, good access and helpful staff.

Englethwaite Hall Club Campsite
Spent five nights here recently, and enjoyed some good weather. A short drive out will put you in easy reach of shops and supermarkets if shopping for food etc. Friendly staff, always busy, and available if you need them. Great dog walks, especially High Stand wood with its lakes and number of paths. A pity that some people find it necessary to walk their dogs past the back of your van, even if you are sitting out!!

I stayed on this site for 4 nights earlier this month and found it to be truly excellent in every way. The staff always seem to be working somewhere maintaining cleanliness and appearance to the highest standard, I really cannot fault it just great.

Little Gem

Englethwaite Hall Club Campsite
Beautiful little site, lovely warm welcome by the new wardens who held a get together with drinks etc for the Jubilee. Lucky enough to be on a serviced pitch to make up for the lack of a toilet block. Also lucky again to be pitched within the WiFi Hot spot area and the speed was pretty good. One area is quite open with plenty of sunshine and countryside views, the others sheltered by trees and lovely bushes.only there for three nights but managed to visit Hadrians Wall and stunning Ullswater which was very busy for the Jubilee weekend.
