Well this campsite blew us away, on one hand we stopped at one of the most beautiful campsites we've ever stopped at and on the other, the word hoarders comes to mind. :) the toilets and showers are something to behold, dirty, uncleaned and messy, but if you can see past that like we did, you would stop here in a heartbeat for the beauty of the location. Cheap as chips. Would definitely stop here again.

We stayed here for the first time in our 7meter Van. This site is in a beautiful location and well worth a trip down the narrow lane to get there. To avoid any stress, our advice would be stop at the gate for the campsite, on the left as you get to the bottom of the hill. If the sign directs you to enter by the farmhouse, walk up and ask to enter by the lower gate. We did this and had no problem. The farm entrance would have been very tight. Agree with previous review - best to fill up with water before you get there. Site run by a helpful chap. We were bemused by the recycling system! We will return for location, location, location.

Not a campsite the faint-hearted. The facilities are basic to say the least and the and the pricing structure and contact details seem fairly random. Having said that, in terms of getting away from it all, I haven't found a place like it so far. There are spectacular views and walks and I love this location. The site is relaxed and you are able to pitch wherever you like, there's a stream running through for the kids and Goredale Scar is spectacular. In terms of privacy, you have to be aware that there is a busy public footpath running through the middle of this narrow site but this didn't bother me or cause any feeling of being watched. I love this place.

I though I would write this from a motorhome prospective as most of the reviews are for tents. This is a fantastic location, great start for the 7. 5 mile circular walk from Janets Foss to Malham, Malham Cove and Malham Tarn returning via Gordale Scar ( scramble down the waterfall )

My motorhome is 6. 9 meters long by 3. 1 meters high built on a Peugeot base. It is tight getting in to the field via the farmhouse entrance and you will have to fold your mirrors in to get through the gate and quickly fold them out to watch the back end of your motorhome, but Once in its well worth it. There is a water tap at the gate but I suggest you fill up before you get there as you will be blocking the gate ( its not a hose pipe style tap so you would need an adapter ) There is a slope to get out of the field when leaving, just take it easy and you will get out as I did when it was wet last time I went.

Satellite TV will work but only in the first part of the campsite away from the gorge.

Freeview didn't work for me.

Mobile, you will be lucky to get a 3G signal with any network and a very limited phone signal.

FM radio fine.

Hot water for pot washing.

Only 1 shower for both male and female to use but no issue if you have a full tank of water.

This is a great campsite and the owner is friendly, Very good price too, great to find a campsite that doesn't exploit its customers and location. It would be helpful if motorhomes were allowed to use the lower gate to enter and exit but it wouldn't put me off going.

As said by others this is a cracking place to stay. We turned up on the saturday morning of a bank holiday hoping there was space. We were told we could park wherever and we did, right next to the stream with a fantastic view up the scar!. Its very sheltered from the wind and a proper sun trap if your lucky as we were. The toilets are very basic to say the least and the shower would be described as interesting. The farmer is very pleasant with some strange recycling practices but this does not detract from a cracking place. We only paid 15 for a camper with two adults and a child. We have a solar panel and our own toilet so the lack of ehu wasn't a problem, even without this the stream would keep the beer cold!. The village is only a short walk away as is the scar, malham cove, janets foss and loads of lovely scenery. Theres no doubt we will be returning.

What can I say? This has got to be one of the most beautiful sites I have ever camped at!

If you're looking for spotlessly clean facilities, this is not for you. It is very basic but everything you need to camp comfortably. The owner is eccentric but kind and around the facilities are collections of discarded items, I presume left by other campers. It's easy to see past these and I was more intrigued than disgusted by it.

We paid 20 for one night - 2 adults, 2 children, 2 vehicles and a tent and whilst some may argue that for the price, the facilities should be better, I would argue that we were privileged to camp in an area steeped in natural beauty. We could choose where we pitched and to say it was a bank holiday weekend, the site wasn't busy at all.

The site is a short walk to Gordale Scar or Janet's Foss in the other direction. Malham Cove is a 1 mile walk away an the village is probably a mile away too. My boys aged 10 and 4 absolutely loved their time here; playing in the stream, stargazing and exploring!

We will hopefully be returning and staying here in the summer, staying for longer.
