Enquire Now You enquired

Wild Rose is a friendly five star family park in the heart of the beautiful Eden Valley.

Free from the frenetic pace of the popular tourist areas, Eden has much to offer the discerning visitor. Appleby-in-Westmorland (only 3 miles away), was once a fierce border stronghold is now a pretty, leisurely little town with indoor swimming pool, 18 hole golf course, bowling green, small attractive shops and quaint pubs.

From the park visit traditional farming villages, or enjoy a trip on the famous Settle - Carlisle railway. Ideal base for exploring the lake District and Yorkshire Dales, both only a short drive away.

Relax, unwind and enjoy unrivalled views across the valley to the great ridges of the Pennines as they dip down to gently flowing river.

Wild Rose is open all year. In the summer it is a haven for flowers - primrose, cowslip and orchid, with violets in the hedgerows which blossom with cascades of wild roses. Whilst during winter snow can be see on the high fells and frost in the trees sparkle.

Wildlife is actively encouraged onto the park so do not be surprised if some unusual visitors join you for breakfast. Look out for Red Squirrels, Sparrow Hawks, Spotted Woodpeckers, Buzzards, Hedgehogs and Rabbits. Take a walk along our quiet country lanes if you're lucky see wild deer, badgers and foxes.

Caravans, motorhomes and tents are all welcome. Grass and hard standing pitches available some fully serviced with their own electric, water and TV hook up points. As you would expect from a top quality 5 star park, all our facilities are maintained to an exceptionally high standard.

We visited Wildrose for the kids holiday week in early June. The Site is well located 3 miles from Appleby a lovely town. The site is large but poorly maintained. The Toilets were not suffient for both the caravans and the large tent field, nor were they cleaned regularly.
The site also seemed to allow large groups of young people to book into the site. The bar and restaurant however are good and cater or families.

Have just returned from a wonderful and relaxing short break at Wild Rose (July 08). This is a picturesque and well-serviced park that has good-sized pitches and excellent facilities including take-away, laundrette and well stocked shop. All the staff were helpful and friendly, there are plenty of activities for children indoors and out. They also have an excellent area for dogs to be let off the lead – ours had brilliant time. Only down side was the pool area - we felt should have been manned as some kids and adults ignored the poolside rules, which could be dangerous for them and others.

Wild Rose is an immaculate family run park. It was nice to see members of the family maintaining the park. Perfect for our young children as there was plenty to keep them occupied. A great location for days out in the lakes. We will most certainly be returning during '06!
