 Great campsite. Toilets and showers were spotless. Site was clean, tidy and well presented. Pitches are flat and spacious.

There is now a bar on site and a van that serves pizzas and loaded flatbreads on certain days.

The ladies that run the site were lovely, great customer service.

Walk into Kirkby Stephen is about 15 minutes there are some lovely shops, places to eat, takeaways and dog friendly pubs.

Nice circular walk along the old viaduct.

Can't wait to visit again.

 We enjoyed our stay at pennine view it was a good base to enjoy the surrounding area and village's.

The camp itself was very clean and tidy and extra precautions were in place due to the corona virus.

The facilities for a drink and eating were adequate

But on the whole we would recommend the site and would use the site when visiting the area again.

 Lovely site. Very well kept.

Great bar ‘The Engine Shed’ unfortunately only open Thursday to Sunday but it was nice the one night we were able to use it.

15 minute walk to Kirkby Stephen and about 30 minute walk to Nateby in the other direction.

 The site is on the left as you exit Kirkby Stephen travelling south or on the right as you enter travelling north. The site is on an old railway yard.

On entry to the site you are given an envelope containing information and a fob for the barrier, which is needed for re-entry. Payment is made by bank transfer before you arrive at the site. There is hand sanitizer outside the reception.

The caravan pitches, most of which are on hard standings, are large and flat.

There are at least two fresh water points on the site.

There were no restrictions on the use of the toilet/shower facilities although there were reminders to keep socially distant. They are closed for a deep clean from 12. 30 to 14. 30 and regularly cleaned throughout the day. Handsanitiser is readily available outside of the toilets and CDP.

The free wifi was good, although it did drop out for short periods and the mobile phone signal was good. TV reception is not always good but I did mange to find enough stations to watch if need be.

The children’s play park was open and well used.

There is a bar, which is open from Thursday to Sunday in high season with seats well spaced as well as outdoor seating. They sell very good pizza, which needs to preordered, twice a week and loaded flat breads once a week.

There are some lovely walks from the site and I particularly enjoyed the one entitled ‘The three viaducts. ’

 Excellent campsite. Very well managed. Very clean.

Claer Covid guidelines in place.

No negative comments from us at all but two people were unhappy with radio at well past midnight in toilet blocks.

This did not affect us but radio was still on at 02:15 when I visited toilet block.

There were plenty of hand scrubs and gels on site.

 Great site in a great location for visiting Cumbria, Teesdale, Yorkshire Dales and Forest of Bowland. Friendly staff, clean facilities. Spacious pitches.

Could do with either more electricity points or extension leads to borrow, as some pitches are about 20 metres from the power points.

Engine shed bar and pizza place are great - Just wish they were open more than just the 4 nights and 2 nights respectively.

No recycling for bottles and plastic.

 Peaceful farm site about 10 minutes walk from St Johns Chapel.

Grassy site with EHU and small shower block.

Excellent walks along the river or in the higher fells can be started here.

Pubs and cafes in the village are all good and offer a warm welcome.

Owner is very friendly and welcoming.

 This is a well-kept site within 10-15 minutes walk of Kirkby Stephen main street.

It makes an excellent base for getting outdoors in the area.

Site itself is well-maintained with large pitches and good facilities.

Would certainly use again.

Reviewer: Sterlingcaravan 5 reviews from this member

 Just spent four days at Pennine View.

It is a really nice well kept site within easy reach of some lovely walks and close to Kirkby Stephen itself.

Toilets and showers are spotless as are other facilities.

The owners are helpful and friendly.

Will definitely return.
