The usual very high standards found at Caravan Club sites. Excellent location surrounded by beautiful countryside. Friendly wardens. We were able to walk into Grassington village from the site. Good pub and restaurant on the site serving good food at reasonable prices. The only downside was too many dogs with some owners that allowed them to urinate on the pitches and some who seemed to think we all enjoyed listening to their barking.

Returned from a 4 night break here, and I am sadly very disappointed.

The site is like a car park, there is nothing to make it outstanding apart from the area making it easy to get into the beautiful Yorkshire countryside.

The wardens were hardly ever seen, and didn't seem to want to make eye contact or even say hello.

There are children constantly riding round on bikes, can't blame them as there is nowhere else for them to go. We were kept awake by two families laughing and drinking until half 12 one night, their children still zipping round and shouting. I feel an evening walk round by the wardens might help.

The toilet block was the normal high CC standard but the rest of the time there was uninspiring.

I don't normally feel so negative but this site left me cold.

Just spent 4 nights here and what a gem of a site. Well laid out with brilliant showers and spotlessly clean facilities. Wardens ( I hate that name) were very friendly and helpful and nothing was to much trouble. Really good walks around from gentle strolls to energetic hikes. Public footpaths everywhere. Caught the bus into Skipton ( £6. 50 return) which is a very busy market town. Would recommend for a quiet break.

Stayed here for the weekend and was a top site! Very well organised and spotless in every way! New play are is great for kids!location is great too and is only a short distance from grassington! It is clearly a popular site and think advance booking at peak times will be a must!w Would highly recommend!

Spent a night here just to try out our new caravan. The wardens were welcoming and friendly, in fact we couldn't have asked for more. I felt that if I had any issues setting up they would have been only to happy to help (and I was right).

The site has good sized hardstanding pitches with lots of squirrels and rabbits (which our daughter loved watching). The toilet block was warm and clean with all the facilities you could need, the site is well laid out so you don't have to go far for water/waste/bins etc. There is a new children's play area which was perfect for our little one (even though it was quite a cold and wet weekend).

A short walk away is the Gamekeepers Inn which although it was fully booked for food when we arrived did take away fish and chips and rather good ale. Grassington is a slightly longer walk away and there is a lot to do in the surrounding area.

Overall a nice site, I'd happily go back.

Situated in wonderful countryside and ideal for walkers but close enough to lovely towns and villages for drivers. A very busy site all year round and unfortunately no views of the countryside as it is screened by high trees and you'll be looking at other caravans, etc. Very clean site and toilet block but the grounds are overrun with rabbits, hundreds of them, which dig holes everywhere and nibbled our leads and even had a go at the motorhome! Being from the country, I think their numbers should be reduced.

Top tips: Walk part of the Dales Way which passes through Grassington. Catch the bus to Burnsell or Appletreewick and walk back or go the other way to Kettlewell and walk back (getting bus first means you're not rushing to catch it for a lift back).

Visit Skipton: it's great for shopping, eating and just walking around.

Try to avoid parking in the centre of Grassington, it may be free for a few hours but it gets VERY congested and you'll annoy the locals, go to the large Dales National car park a few minutes walk away which doesn't cost much.
