Stayed here having been disgusted at the facilities and lack of cleanliness at another local site. The owner willingly showed us the facilities before paying up and reassuringly the toilets and shower room were immaculate. The pitches were easily accessible with the car, it being a quiet night anyway. Good access into Malham village and two excellent pubs a short walk away and very close to Malham Cove and other local attractions, we will definitely be back.

We have just arrived home after two nights at this incredibly well kept campsite. In total we were 4 adults with 2 tents. The field is split into two, one side where you can park with your tent and the other where you have to leave your car in the car park (due to drainage issues on the field) - we arrived quite late on Friday evening so had to pitch up on this side and carry our tent etc from the car park. It's not a long walk though and no trouble. The site was advertising full when we arrived so I was glad that I'd booked but we did notice that they don't turn away hikers even when full. Even though the site was full the field wasn’t crowded. Quiet time is between 11. 00pm and 6. 00am – an alarm is probably not required as the resident ducks can be quite vocal in the mornings! The toilets and showers were cosy and very clean (you need to buy tokens from the owners for £1 which gives you 7 minutes of shower or 7 minutes of electricity) and the water was hot. We ate both nights in the Lister Arms (5 minutes walk into the village) as we were so impressed with the food and had a lovely walk to Malham Cove and Gordale Scar where we scrambled up the waterfall. We will definitely return!

This was our first outing in our new van so apologies to the others on the site who were possibly woken by our alarm going off every time we moved during the night! Hopefully that's sorted now.

We stayed for one night at the end of the Easter holidays. We were warned in advance that the ground was too boggy to drive our van onto the field so they reserved us a space at the end of the (small) car park, next to the fence and field. This was fine as it was a very short stay and we were planning to eat in the pub but for anything longer it may have been a bit grim!

The site was lovely though and the rules weren't too bad - just obvious things that people should really be doing already, without being told. The toilets were clean and adequate, I didn't use the shower so can't comment on that and the field, particularly down by the river, looked good. I like sites where cars are parked away from tents.

I'd recommend the food in the Lister Arms although maybe not the bar service - it was very busy and there was a long, slow queue for a lot of the evening.

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.
