Visited over the may bank holiday.Arrived when office was closed, but a list of pitch numbers was on the window, easy enough to find.
Good site very near to settle, can recommend the 'china china' takeaway in town!
Facilities were good, push button showers, but good and hot, 3 each for both sexes. Ladies was reasonably clean, although the floor in the shower room was muddy and a lot of standing water, could do with another couple of drains.
If everyone left muddy boots and shoes outside the door, as requested by the signs, the problem would be solved.So why not provide a shoe rack??. Would recommend investing in some plastic flip flops or 'crocs' for shower room.
Hubby thought mens facilities were a bit dirty, and in need of more frequent cleaning.
Some more hooks would help to keep clothes of the wet floor. All in all a good site, just needs a tweak here and there, would visit again for a weekend only.
Stayed here May Bank Holiday weekend & had an excellent time. The site is located within walking distance to Settle, with a number of walks from the site, walking maps are available from the site office. The new touring field is superb, plenty of room between pitches & a central camping area for tents. I think that they had a number of tent pitches with EHU at the top overlooking the site. Kids play area was excellent, so my 4yo kept telling me. Shower / Toilet block very clean but I counted only 3 showers in the Gents so I can imagine that these got very busy, we just used our shower in the caravan. We had a fully serviced pitch, only pitch available at time of booking & paid £85 a bit more than I would have liked to have paid, but then, it was a bank holiday. Overall an Excellent site & would recommend to anyone.
This is a very good site situated about a mile from Settle town centre. The town itself is well worth visiting, with many shops, pubs and restaurants. Settle also has its railway station with connections to Leeds and Carlisle. The journey to Carlisle is worth trying as there are excellent views en route. The sites facilities are excellent with heated toilet blocks and power showers. Will certainly use this site again.
Now before you read this review I have to be clear that I did visit on a cold, grey and wet November midweek which gives you a different perspective to summer campers.
Firstly I would agree with all of the positives that previous reviwers have noted.
The site is really well placed just a short walk from Settle which is a wonderful town with lots of nice 'proper' shops and pubs, cafes etc as well as access to the Settle Carlisle railway.
The site itself is well placed for walking with lots of great walks direct from the campsite and I would imagine that in better weather it would be very picturesque.
The shower blocks are clean and hot water is very very plentiful. I have minor niggles with push button showers and they could do with a few more hooks but apart from that very good facilities.
The site also has wifi access although its pretty weak on the touring field so you tend to have to walk towards reception to get a good signal.
Now the down side. Whilst I give them full marks for staying open through winter the site isnt really fully set up to do so. When I visited the touring field was a quagmire and although I had booked a hardstanding it was barely adequate. The hardstanding pitches just have some hardcore placed down the centre and I was struggling to pitch with even the two drive wheels on hard standing despite having a very small motorhome. If you have a large unit expect to get badly bogged down.
I suspect that they need to do more upgrading before they can truly operate all year without problems.
So in summary, nice site, well positioned but watch it if its very wet!
I last stayed at Langcliffe in the 80's with my parents and have some very happy memories of my holidays there, so I decided to return with my husband and little girl. Not much has really changed except the great new toilet / shower block, very clean and tidy and the showers were lovely and warm.
As for the campsite, our little girl loved feeding the ducks that roamed around the field and having the freedom to run around, still lovely and peaceful with great views and plenty of good walks, especially the one into Settle which took us about 15 minutes and we rewarded ourselves with cream buns at "Ye old naked man" cafe, still as scrummy as I remember! Great fish and chip restaurant and plenty of cosy pubs and shops in the village.
We will certainly visit again, really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend it.
Overall a very nice site. Great location for the village, which has bags of character and some of the friendliest people. We had a great Sunday roast at the Golden Lion. Walk in and have a bottle of very good and reasonably priced wine. We called for an drink on the Sat night and paid a daft price for a glass of wine. Far better value by the bottle! (Any excuse)
The park is clean and tidy, reception staff very helpful. No shop but reception sells milk, eggs, sweets. Some nice walks from the site with laminated cards detailing these available to HIRE for 50p each. (Forget the laminating and give them away.seemed a little grabbing to me)
Going over a weekend in August we expected it to be busy. It was - packed to the rafters, it seemed that every bit of grass had a tent pitched on it. I felt that they more units to pitch than was comfortable. Friday and Saturday nights were quite noisy - lots of kids playing, crying etc and people having a laugh, nothing unpleasant - not complaining about the children - I used to be one then had my own! However due to the numbers of people allowed to pitch it felt claustrophobic and far less than peaceful.Sunday night was far nicer, still a good few people around but didn't fee hemmed in.
Loos - plenty of them - nice and clean and excellent showers. Surprisingly for the number of campers I didn't encounter any queues in the ladies. Hubby was less than impressed to find long queues in the gents for both the showers and loos - one of the 3 loos out of order all weekend.
My main gripe was the bins. There is one bin are for the whole site (about 90-100 units when packed) which was totally inadequate. When we arrived on Friday evening the bins were pretty much full, by Sunday the whole area was over-flowing. Fortunately it wasn't hot weather so didn't whiff too much! The units pitched next to them must have been grateful for that!
As I said - a nice site. But avoid going at peak season if you want any space and peace and quiet.
