ABOUT US

THE SITE

Waterside Caravan Park is a family run business set on a former working farm, in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, with views of the Howgill fells on two sides. Waterside provides an ideal base for exploring the Yorkshire Dales or the Lake District. The park is ideal for those wanting to explore the great outdoors or just wanting to relax, surrounded by the ever changing landscape. 

The caravan park is situated in a peaceful location next to the river Lune. Access is gained through the farm buildings and under the Lune Viaduct, designed by Joseph Locke and John Errington. It was built 1858-61 to carry what was intended to become the main railway linking Yorkshire with Scotland, 30 m above the River Lune on six Penrith sandstone arches and a cast-iron central span (162 m in total)

Unfortunately, the failure of rival operating firms to co-operate led to an alternative route being developed. The Grade II* Listed structure remains tremendously impressive, dramatically spanning the narrow valley of the Lune  here at Waterside (hence the alternative name 'Waterside Viaduct). It was renovated in 2007 with care being taken to avoid disturbing the resident ravens.

At Waterside Caravan Park, all our plots are privately owned with no subletting allowed. There is no clubhouse or touring facilities making for a peaceful private environment to enjoy your time here. Our season is from the first of March to the fifteenth of January.
