We stayed Friday and Saturday night and we were really lucky with the weather which always helps but can honestly say have never been greeted at any campsite by such a friendly welcoming site owner. It was our first visit so the owner showed all of us round the site before taking us to our pitch. The facilities were spotless and remained so the whole stay. The scenery is beautiful and the site is very peaceful too. We enjoyed walking into Leyburn for a few drinks and food and would try Middleham next time. A perfect stay - only thing that would be a slight worry would be the lack of showers as, though we managed fine this time, there weren't many tents and I could imagine there could be quite a wait if more campers. Would definitely recommend this site and we will most certainly return.

Its difficult to imagine how a site could be much better. Apart from the immaculate facilities, beautifully maintained pitches and great location, Richard, was a most helpful and accommodating owner.

When arrived and our Motorhome promptly died as we were booking in. Complete electrical failure, a dead motor stuck in his driveway. Richard's knowledge of motor mechanics did not fix it so out came the tractor and we were towed to our pitch. A bit embarrassing to say the least, but all done in good humour. Green Flag to the rescue and the driver turned out to be a friend of Richard's! All sorted in no time.

We were touring and would loved to have stayed longer.

5 star - Richard - thank you.

We visited Cracken House Caravan Site at the end of April 2015 for a long weekend away with family and friends (4 Adults, 2 children and 5 Dogs)Let me start by saying the site is stunning. When I arrived the owner had just mowed all the pitches and the place looked like a little piece of heaven on a very sunny day. The owner Richard made us feel at home straight away and was an absolute star. The pitches are more than generous with ample bins, water points and poo bins within easy reach. The toilets and showers where clean and very well maintained. (Not a lot of them but we never needed to queue and lots of hot water). The grounds them selves where spotless and very well kept.

We had staged arrivals and these where delt with with ease by Richard and the whole weekend was made even more relaxing by this kind mans relaxed attitude.

Just to sum up if you want a relaxing break in a beautiful part of Yorkshire this is the ideal place.

WE WILL be going back as soon as we can A1 5 star service what more can I say.

Richard was the perfect host during our stay. The site is excellent on all fronts, spacious pegs, toilet/shower areas spotless, great scenery, a very well looked after site. This was our first time camping and we believe this was a perfect start selecting Cracken House. Hope to visit more regular when in the dales, no need to search for alteratives.

We have tried a few times to book with Craken house and were lucky to get in for a weekend. I can say it was well worth the wait. This site well suited us. It is quiet, very well kept and very clean. It was well worth the site price and no extras for showers, pets or awning. I would like to say how we appreciated the help and guidance from the owners who are fantastic. The pitch sizes are brilliant and the views are outstanding. For us dog owners there are two fields for dogs to go (on lead) which is a plus. All walkers and dog owners out there this is a great base for you, with plenty of walking (people who need to be entertained need not apply) but for those of you who appreciate the good things in life such as the outdoors, history and exercise this is the place. Leyburn can be reached via a mile walk (off road) although not that good for food I would go that little bit further out to Richard III at Middleham, more money but worth it or the cover bridge inn at East Witton less money but good pub grub. All in all a fantastic stay and will be staying again as we didn't get to see Middleham castle, set off but ended up assisting an accident in downpour for two and a half hours and had to come back to site to warm up and change. Just one word if you are struggling to get off the site from wet conditions, don't be the butch man ask owners they will get you off with tractor and leave the grass intact.

Reviewer: Juleslabbett 1 review from this member

I have just returned from this site and was very impressed. Richard, the owner, was very friendly and helpful and I got the impression that nothing would be too much trouble for him. The site has amazing views and the pitches were large and well spread. There were only 2 toilets and 1 shower for each sex but I never had to wait to use them and they were spotlessly clean. A new pot washing facility has just opened and this includes a washing machine and a fridge/freezer is on the way.

It is only a short walk into Leyburn where there are plenty of local amenities. It is also possible to walk from the site. I also felt the site was very good value for money at only £17 per night including EHU.
