Pennine View Park is a family-run site on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, a mile from the centre of the historic market town of Kirkby Stephen and its railway station. It's also a short drive from both the Lake District National Park and the North Pennines, meaning that there are lots of walks and cycle routes nearby catering for all tastes from gentle country strolls to challenging mountain bike trails.
Other activities nearby include fishing, horse riding and paragliding, and there are countless villages, castles and natural attractions within easy reach as well. All the attractions of Kirkby Stephen including its shops, pubs and places to eat are just a short walk away from the campsite.
The campsite has a playground, washing-up area, a launderette and washrooms with free hot showers, baby bath, accessible facilities and a relaxed, rustic on-site bar.
