 One night stay in our van returning from Scotland. Online booking system is excellent and allowed to book a single night on a Saturday which is really helpful.

Young woman on reception was relatively new to the job but really helpful and friendly. Pitch was spacious and positioned near the river at the far end of the site. We couldn't find the EHU for our pitch and I couldn't tell which of the 7 or 8 vans in the row had connected incorrectly. The young woman again was very helpful and sorted it.

Engine Shed pub on site is very pleasant. Still had table service when we were there. Inside and outside seating available. I wouldn't particularly want to pitch up adjacent to the pub so worth checking when you book.

Facilities very clean but one gripe: no shower curtains! This might be a Covid measure but we've had shower curtains elsewhere. This meant that you either had to leave your gear outside the shower cubicle or get it wet!

 Fabulous site. Facilities clean, pitch good, friendly staff and Engine Shed, beer garden and food van lovely.

Really enjoyed watching England final on big screen put up for occasion.

Surrounding area gorgeous.

 Perfect for my C2C walk. Facilities clean and site quiet even though quite busy.

Not far into town for pubs or food.

Didn't meet anyone but information for where to pitch was left in a marked envelope so this was no problem.

 Stayed two separate nights in two different camping pods. Good location within walking distance of the centre of Kirkby Stephen. Efficient and straightforward online booking system.

Friendly welcome at the reception on arrival. Key and details had been left in envelope to minimize contact.

Both pods were clean and well maintained. One pod was brand new. £40 per night. Pods equipped with kettle, fridge and a few utensils. Heated. Plastic mattresses which were comfy. Very handy for the facilities which were clean and well maintained. Showers included in the price.

I could park my motorcycle directly outside the pod.

Very nice pub on site (closed Weds). Food trailer on site most nights - pizza, flat breads etc depending on the night.

Rest of the site looked good. Well organised and well maintained. Will be back at some point in my campervan.

 A great site. On arrival I was given a pitch right next to the 'pub', which (with Covid restrictions) was only serving outside, so was a bit noisy for me! So I asked if I could move elsewhere and, after a phonecall to a colleague, a very quiet spot was found for me although the site was officially full for the weekend.

The site is near to roads so there was a little traffic noise but not sufficient to worry me. I can't comment on the showers etc because of Covid regs, but the toilets were open and seemed adequate and clean.

There are loads of great footpaths around; one day I walked 8 miles in lovely countryside but was never far from town (or the site) in case of a change of weather.

 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.
