The sheltered level setting straddling the banks of the River Wenning is truly superb, screened by trees and natural hillsides with excellent walks along the riverbank and in the surrounding countryside.

High Bentham used to be in the West Riding and is now in North Yorkshire, although the postal address is and always has been 'Lancaster', the nearest towns are in Cumbria and North Yorkshire.

High Bentham is exceptionally fortunate in the diversity of it's scenery. The River Wenning, a tributary of the Lune, meanders pleasantly from the South of Clapham alongside both High and Low Bentham and walks from Riverside Caravan Park, on either bank, through rich meadow and pastureland give a feeling of serenity and peace, so rare in these difficult, busy days.

In contrast, less than 30 minutes climb brings one to the fell gate and to 'Big Stone' with it's breathtaking views of moors and mountains, extending from Bowland to the far Lakeland hills. When the quiet evening falls, an unforgettable experience is the glorious vision of the sun setting over Morecambe Bay.

Shops and pubs are within comfortable walking distance of the Park. Within the town there is a Spar and Co-op open until late every evening and open on Sundays. There are also a variety of shops including a chemist, hardware store, haberdashery, country furnishing shop and gift shops.
