Excellent location, stunning views, well worth the visit.
Toilet/Shower block leaves a lot to be desired, unclean, bins in the toilets open and full, only emptied on the Sunday morning. Only one shower to be shared between both men and women, old, dirty and a stiff drink needed before use!
We had tried several times to book, only getting an answer machine message but no call back. Eventually after trying unsuccessfully to speak to someone we managed to get a mobile number to text to which we received a reply. After speaking with other campers, they said they just turned up and hoped for the best.
Gordale Scar is beautiful. Just along the footpath is Janet Foss which is stunning, carry along the footpath to Malham village which is picturesque.
Definitely worth another visit, as there is so much to see. We will go back despite the shoddy cleaning facilities.
Stunning. No frills needed, the idyllic location wholly compensates for any inadequacies with the washing and toilet facilities. There are no defined pitches, just choose a spot you fancy - lots of level grassland at your disposal. Friendly owner.
Well served by footpaths; from the campsite it is 15 minutes ambling to Gordale Scar, the same to Janet's Foss and 45 minutes fairly gentle climbing to the top of Malham Cove.
Two adults, two kids (aged 14 & 11) plus dog, Vango EOS 550xl tent.
Wow! The location! This site has been on my wishlist before I'd even thought about buying a tent. If there was one word used to describe Gordale Scar it would be stunning.
The 'site' is on the grass on the lead up to Gordale Scar, a few minutes walk from Janet's Foss, however it is about as basic as camping gets with loos, shower and washing up facilities. No set pitches; take your pick of wherever you fancy.
Okay, so the facilities are not the best in the world, but, I coped and they were not as bad as I'd feared. On saying that, we were the only campers other than a campervan on site so I could imagine they have the potential to be a different story during busy months. Two toilets and three sinks in ladies, same again in gents, plus a washing up area with a shower to use. Yes, there is lots of stuff. everywhere. But that is only once you're through the gate leading to the ladies, gents, washing up area & shower; we couldn't see this 'stuff' from anywhere near where we were pitched. Plus, did I mention the location?! There looked to be a couple of EHU points close to the farm house & facilities, but we didn't use it so can't comment.
Lots of places to walk/visit in the surrounding area. We didn't use our car from when we arrived until we left. Lovely walk to Malham Cove, Tarn, village, round to Janet's Foss then back up to Gordale Scar.
Lots of sheep on site so you might want to keep that in mind if you have a dog.
Paid £17/night for 2 adults, 2 kids, dog, car & tent; you're definitely paying for the location, not the facilities!
The site is a a mile down a single track road with passing places, which has a 17% hill at the end which is fine on way in, however on the way out could be a major challenge for some units, especially if you have a front wheel drive and a heavy van! I didn't have a problem, but only because the road was dry when we left, and I didn't meet anything on the hill to stop me on way up.
The charge for 1 night here was £14, but on handing over £15 was told he had no change so. That'll be £15 then eh? Asked if hook included was told he was having trouble with it so no. I later noticed 3 plastic bottles lying on the ground. I found these to be no more than an extension cable split into 2 fly leads! The hook up sockets on the end when inside 2litre pop bottles with the cable through the neck and the bottom cut off! Talk about DIY, I would definitely say DIY Dont touch.
All the previous reviews are accurate regarding facilities, but then this site is about location, this is stunning.
I like this site although facilities could do with an overhaul. The coin machine (10p) which runs the solitary shower on the site is an antique. The site is situated at the entrance to Goredale Scar, a wonderful location and each day you see dozens of people heading up the path that cuts through the site. There's a lovely and relatively easy walk into Malham via Janets Foss where there are several places to get fed and fuelled. Also just outside the site is a chuck wagon which is there most days where a quick snack and brew can be obtained for those who prefer to travel light.
The only downer for me was the colour of the `drinking water` that come out of the tap. If this kinda thing bothers you take your own.
