Lickpenny Caravan Park is built on former nursery stock land, and we have enhanced most of the existing mature trees and beautiful rhododendrons to make this a most peaceful retreat for all wishing to visit us.
Some of the pitches have fantastic views over the surrounding hills and towards the historic Riber Castle, and beyond. There are large grassed areas for your recreation and a woodland walk which provides ample room for nature and dog walks.
Our pitches are both generous in size and well separated with attractive borders. All our pitches are hardstandings, so there is no need to worry about the weather.
Calor Gas bottles are available for exchange on the park. We sell milk, and bread and papers are available to order. Lickpenny is also well placed to take advantage of public transport should you wish to leave your car or motor caravan on site. Dogs are welcome, but must be kept on a lead.
The children's play area is situated well away (but within view) of the pitches.
