Situated where Lake, Coast and Dale unite, Riverside Caravan Park & Holiday Cottages offers you the chance to escape from the worries of life and immerse yourself in our rural retreat. Whether you’re looking for a short break or a regular bolt hole, we can offer you a blissful hideaway.
Nestled on the banks of the River Wenning in an unspoilt and delightful area, this beautifully maintained caravan park and cottages is within walking distance of the local market town of High Bentham.
The caravan park has been owned and managed by the Marshall family since the development from a green field site in the late 1960s. Over the years the park has evolved as the change in customer needs have done so, offering you a modern and fresh holiday location. The facilities are provided for holiday home owners, touring caravans, motorhomes and trailer tents. Those staying in Riverside Cottages, located at the park entrance, can also enjoy these facilities.
Riverside Caravan Park has 61 touring pitches which are all level, grassy and well drained – 12 fully serviced hard standing pitches, 15 hard standing and 34 level grass pitches. Our fully serviced pitches each boast a water stand pipe and grey waste pipe as well as adjacent gravel space for awnings or seating. All our pitches offer electric and T.V. points and complimentary Wi-Fi is available, accessible through a simple login method.
Our touring pitches are generous in size with lots of space to give you room to enjoy your holiday. The children won’t struggle to burn off excess energy on our outdoor adventure playground, which is within sight of the touring area. We also have a small playing field should you have budding Rooney’s or Messi’s who are eager to hone their skills whilst on holiday!
Our Holiday cottages are located just before the entrance to the park. Parkside is dog friendly and sleeps 6 people in 3 bedrooms. Woodside sleeps 8 people in 3 bedrooms. With open fires for cosy nights in during the Winter and spacious patios for alfresco dining in Summer, Riverside Cottages are an ideal base for families and groups of friends to explore from.
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. For the more adventurous, the “Yorkshire Three Peaks”, which takes in Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough, are very close by.
If walking isn’t your hobby of choice then you certainly won’t be short of other things to do. The River Wenning is ideal for those who enjoy fishing and is stocked regularly to ensure you land your daily catch. For those who prefer coarse fishing, Riverside has its own fishing lake in a peaceful location away from the main bustle of life. Bentham Golf Course is a 7-iron from the park and customers can enjoy half price green fees all year round! Equipment hire, including clubs, is also available if you can’t fit the excess baggage in the car. Cycle hire, pony trekking, arts trails, are just a few additional activities available when you holiday at Riverside Caravan Park.
Bentham itself has plenty to offer with 6 pubs, 2 Indian takeaway, a Chinese takeaway, fish and chip shop plus various sandwich venues to satisfy your appetite. We have a Co-op and Spar, which are both open from 7am until 10pm daily, as well as local butchers, bakers, greengrocers, a chemist and several boutique stores.
Join us today and see if it’s as delightful as we say; we look forward to welcoming you to the family.
