Loved the campsite, its at on a working farm, in a great position and although lots of do's and don'ts they had very clean facilities and we loved it, we stayed when the Malham show was on, its only a short walk to all the local pubs etc.

Jean and Norman try very hard to ensure you enjoy your stay, and we would visit again.

Well, after a ten or more years break from camping, my partner and I decided we would attempt to book at this camp site for the August Bank Holiday, from the Saturday through to the Tuesday morning. On arrival, we were greeted by Mrs. Moon, who kindly instructed us as to where we could pitch, leave the car, and informed us of the facilities that were available. This was a very spur of the moment booking, last minute, so we didn't have a lot of choice, but after the short break, hot showers, clean toilets and food preparation and cleaning areas, as well as the superb location, I cannot recommend this campsite enough. Both Mr. & Mrs. Moon made us feel most welcome, friendly and could not do enough to make sure our stay was a good one. Albeit the weather was changeable, it didn't taint our stay in this great location. If anyone is thinking of camping at Malham Cove, stay here and you won't regret it.

Wonderful campsite, clean and well kept. There are lots of rules but if you camp regularly then you do most of them anyway:- respect the area, keep noise levels down, try not to damage the ground, etc.

No hook up on site but we knew before we arrived, not very happy with the charges but all sites seemed to have jumped on this band wagon, why charge per person and per vehicle, you have to use a vehicle to get there, where are the good old days when you arrived at a site and the pitch cost 'this much', not how many of you are there, plus a vehicle, plus a tent/camper (more if you have a dog or kids). Just another way to squeeze a couple more quid from you, but it seems to be the new way generally.

All said the site and owners were lovely, Mr Owner is a typical Yorkshire farmer ('nuff said), Mrs Owner is lovely.

My wife and I have just returned from this lovely campsite and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The site is in a near-perfect location with breath-talking panoramic views of dales – utterly awe-inspiring. Malham village is a mere 5-minute stroll away - where you will find a couple of pubs, a small shop and a quaint little teashop (The old barn Café) - we ate here and the food was piping hot and delicious.

The campsite is small and basic, but well maintained and, most importantly, the showers are immaculate. This is a must for me. The showers cost £1 for seven minutes and likewise there is an electrical socket for shavers, hair dryer etc. Which is also £1 for seven minutes (£8. 50 an hour). Personally, I feel that £1 for seven minutes electricity is extortionate. Unfortunately there are no hook-up facilities and so they have you by the short n’ cuely's.

There is limited parking permitted next to pitches, so be prepared to have to hand-ball your gear across the field. We had to do this and it was an absolute pain in the neck. The owners don’t miss a trick either – they’re watching everything. I found that…let’s call him Mr. Farmer, was hard work, too. I tried engaging in conversation with him, and all that I got back was a few grunts and the occasional yes or no – evidently he’s wasn't the stimulating conversationalist that I was expecting lol!

There was an abundance of “RULES” plastered all over the place. It reminded me a little bit of the 80’s film: Lost Boys. The bit at Grandpa’s house, when Grandpa says: 'Rules! (Frantically), we got some rules around here' - LMAO! There’s far too to mention, but you get the gist?

With the above said, I would definitely visit again one day – even if it does have far too many RULES!

A great little campsite in a great location looking over to Malham Cove. Nice friendly lady running the site from the farm house. Showers and washing facilities were perfectly ok, nice and warm and clean at the end of a long days walking. The fields weren't levelled or particularly smooth but drained well considering how much rain we had. They didn't advertise modern super facilities and pitches so we were happy with what there was. The village is a 5 minute walk with 2 pubs to choose from, one of which is head and shoulders above the other in terms of beer and food!

Will definitely return if in the area again.

We stayed at Town Head over the May bank holiday weekend.

Booking: we did not book in advance, yet the owners were able to accommodate our needs and gave us a good pitch.

Location: unbeatable for Malham Cove. Some gnarly (/fun) roads on the approach to Malham if you're in a minibus or bigger.

Arrival: You pay by knocking on the farmhouse door - sometimes they take a while to answer. Sufficient parking at 3pm but it was full by 8pm.

Facilities: Very nice toilets which are kept very clean. Perhaps too few, though. The showers are nice too but you have to go back to the farmhouse (if they're in) to buy tokens - £1 for 7 minutes (inc warm-up time).

Night: We got back at 10. 30pm and the only audible sound was the river. Silence throughout the night led to a really good night's sleep.

Value: We brought two one-man tents and were charged per person and per tent and per vehicle which came to £10. 50 each for the night. This was pretty steep as we could have stayed in the youth hostel for a couple of quid more - particularly when you consider that showers cost more still.
