Had a fantastic four night stay at craken house caravan site we were greeted by Richard who showed us around the site no matter were your pitched the views will be fantastic. Facilities are spotlessly clean. Short walk into leyburn away from the road is great. We loved the site so much we have re booked again for November.

We just couldn't wait to get back to this site after our first visit earlier in the year as we came back home and booked straight away for 8 nights this August. Upon arriving we were treat as old friends and again helped by Richard to get the van in the right position for a fantastic view of the unspoilt countryside. Facilities yet

Again were spotless and loved the personal touches of air freshener in the toilets the hairdryer available and in the washing up area the kettle to make a cuppa whilst washing pots or using the washer. The site is so peaceful and dark on a night your guaranteed to have a great nights sleep and fantastic views everyday. Weather wasn't too great and even though it rained a lot it drained very quickly and didn't stop us from having a brilliant time. Various short walks into Leyburn and also to the t pot factory and the chocolate factory we will be booking again for next year as we love this site you won't be disappointed

Craken House- what a cracking site this is. Easy to find as per the website directions. A very warm welcome from owner Richard who kindly towed our van to our pitch 25 & levelled us using his own blocks. He then showed us round the site & explained recycling etc to us. Our pitch was lovely in the lower family field right next to a lovely stream. Most of the pitches have fab views towards Middleham Moor. All are grass pitches & despite some heavy rain the grass was never very wet, great drainage. Everything about the site pristine, well mown grass, clean bins/recycling areas. Spotless utility room & very clean toilets, washrooms & shower. As site was full over the weekend we expected to have to queue for facilities but this never happened. It was an easy 1 mile walk into the lovely town of Leyburn. We know the area quite well as have family who live close to Leyburn. All in all a truly lovely peaceful site. It was so quiet & dark at night so good sleeps for us! When it was time to leave, Richard once again helped us out as our motor mover wasn't working properly. Overall a great site with a very welcoming owner. I hope that by giving this good review that it doesn't mean the site is fully booked next time I try to book as we will definitely be back!

Our second stay at Craken House Farm and still the most amazing site!. We wanted to go down for the Leyburn Food Festival and Richard booked us in for 3 nights. As per last time, pitches are extremely generous. I'd explained to Richard that we were bringing the full works with us as I had a load of new gear I wanted to try out. He even remembered which pitch we were on last time and gave us the same one! In terms of pitch size we had a HiGear Kalahari Elite 8, 2 porches, canopy on 1 awning, windbreaks, the car and trailer and still plenty of space!

Richard welcomed us like family - he makes this campsite such an amazing place to be on! This year the temporary water points have been replaced by snazzy new ones with paving, hoses, drains etc. There is a wide array of smart bins for various types of rubbish. Although the facilities are minimal in number (1 shower and 2 loos for the men, same for the women), they are immaculate and spacious. The site only has 25 pitches so there is never any real wait.

The pot room has several sinks, a kettle in case you want a cuppa whilst washing up, a communal fridge with freezer section and a washer dryer (at a nominal cost). Again, it is all immaculate and comfortable.

This is a quiet, relaxing campsite on a working farm. Beautiful views over Wenselydale, short walk up to Leyburn (shorter walk to the Chocolate Factory!) and the area is very handy for trips to lots of places such as Forbidden Corner, Wensleydale Creamery, Black Sheep and Theakstons Breweries, Aysgarth Falls and much more.

No shop, no pub, no entertainment, no rowdiness - just peace and beauty. It's perfect! Leyburn is a 20 minute walk (5 minute drive) and has shops, restaurants, pubs and free wi-fi

First trip out in new motorhome, had a refillable gas bottle system fitted near Thirsk, so we thought we would stay at Craken house farm as it was nearby and had some very positive reviews.

We booked two nights, and on arrival Richard gave us the tour and said if we wanted third night it wouldn't be a problem, (we stayed three nights), lovely quiet small site, with lovely scenery and views from it, facilities spotless, and nothing too much trouble for Richard should you need any help, we walked into Leyburn one day and Middleham the next, a very positive experience on our first trip, glad we didn't go to a big site first, heading up to Northumberland next.

Just got back from a 4 night stay. What a treasure Richard is! We arrived on Bank holiday Monday in the rain. Richard welcomed us with a jolly smile and a joke or two. He then showed us to our pitch (number 2 which had panoramic views) and told us to stay in our car while he unhooked us, got his tractor, positioned and levelled our caravan in no time at all (I have a feeling he has done this many times before). He wouldn't take any money off us he insisted we got settled and to catch up with him later in the week. The facilities are clean and well looked after as is the campsite. Leyburn is a lovely village with plenty of amenities and I would recommend the Shawl walk from village. We will definitely be returning to this very popular site. Booking recommended.
