Our delightful Gypsy Caravan Evelyn sits in a beautiful location overlooking the River Eden. She provides a cosy private retreat for 2 in the heart of The Eden Valley in North East Cumbria, perfect for a glamping break in the Lake District. We are just over a mile from the village of Armathwaite which has 2 excellent pubs for food, a well stocked village shop and a station on the famous and beautiful Carlisle - Settle railway. The historic city of Carlisle and the quaint market town of Penrith are only 20 minutes away. Also within easy reach are The Lake District National Park, Hadrians Wall and the Northern Pennines.

Evelyn was retired from the road a few years ago and came to rest here at Drybeck. Since Evelyn arrived at Drybeck she has been lovingly refurbished and renovated and given a thorough makeover both inside and out.. Inside Evelyn you will find a quiet and homely simplicity that lacks nothing in comfort. The raised bed nestles in under the curve of the roof but is still full length at 6ft 2”.. All bedding plus extra throws and blankets are provided.. The wood-burning stove will soon chase away the evening chill for you to then wake up to the sound of the birds and the river.A basket of fuel is provided to get you started and then further fuel for the stove is available to buy.

Outside Evelyn has its own private fully equipped wooden cookhouse alongside it. The open front of the cookhouse also looks out over the river. It has mains electric and water and is equipped with an oven with double hob, fridge, sink and table and chairs. It has all the crockery and utensils you will need to rustle up a meal to enjoy whilst looking out over the river with the abundant birdlife skimming over the water. There’s the fire pit and tripod just in front of the cookhouse if you fancy trying your hand at the traditional lifestyle.

On fine evenings you can sit outside by a crackling outdoor fire whilst listening to the owls and the splash of fish jumping in the river. If you fancy hot tub glamping in the Lake District then look no further. Just a few yards along the river bank is our hot tub which can be booked for your own exclusive use for you to enjoy the view of the river from the warm soothing bubbles of the tub.
