Stopped here first week of opening. Very good site and very friendly helpful staff. A lot of money has been spent here and well worth a visit. Large pitches 28ft motorhome no problem, although on some a long hook up lead will be needed. Having said that no other issues at all. Bus stop near or 8. 00 taxi in to harrogate.

We arrived on the site one day before the official re-opening. The stewards are very friendly and welcoming, the pitch we were allocated was flat and dry. The toilet block has been re-furbished and the showers were among the best we've had at any campsite.

The bus into Harrogate town centre is only a short walk away and there is an excellent farmers market shop and cafe next door. Sainsbury's is at the end of the road, so no need to take the van out once parked up.

We will definitely be returning to the site which is ideally located for Harrogate/Knaresborough towns and any shows being held at the Yorkshire Show Ground.

Great site, next to the showground. A lot of work has been carried out on the site and it will take a while for it to mature. Farmers cafe and shop (fodder) next door and Sainsburys 5min walk away. The travellers rest inn is a 10 min walk away and harrogate is 2 miles away. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Not much for kids but plenty of space to do thier own thing.

Please note this site is reopening in March 2014. It is under new ownership and has been refurbished and will have a mixture of grass and hard standing and heated washrooms.

Many comments in reviews from 2009 and previous years when the site was run by the Caravan Club are not therefore relevant to the new site. Please note this site is reopening in March 2014.

Slightly disappointed with this site as the site was really full when we arrived, which left us with a few pitches in the grass area (nr Fodders) to choose from and they were a bit cramped. Uninspiring, not the usual CC surroundings.

Toilets are clean, but not as you would expect from the Club, ready for updating.

Would use again though for a weekend, as the site is really convenient for Harrogate. No need at all to use the car, bus cheaper and easier than trying to park in town.

Won't say too much about the facilities as they are typical of what you expect from a caravan club site. Everything very much as it should be.

This is a lovely peaceful site, probably more suited to us grumpys than families as there are no play facilities and I guess not loads of spare space for balls etc when full.

The position of the site is just perfect if you want to visit Harrogate particularly if like us you are motorhomers who like to leave the 'rig' on site and walk or use buses for your touring.

The site is a few minutes from a Sainsbury and petrol station so everything you need (and all building work is complete , see previous review).

Just before Sainsbury there are offices for the Yorkshire Agricultural Show and a large Deli and cafe called 'Fodders' showcasing Yorkshire food. Pretty pricey but a great place to wander round with some super stuff on offer.

To get to Harrogate the 770 bus runs every half hour from outside Sainsbury and a family day Rover is the cheapest option (at 6.60) even if you are just a couple.

Harrogate itself has loads of pubs, shops and eateries. If you want to visit Bettys Tea Room make sure you take a credit card ( Thomases Bakery in the main shopping street do 'Fat Scamp' scones at 60p each which are every bit as good as Bettys 'Fat Rascals' for 2.90!).

We visited the RHS gardens at Harlow Carr which were fabulous , just swap buses at the bus station.

Nearer to home The Travellers Rest Pub which is a couple of minutes walk across the showground (probably unofficial but everyone does it) serves nice food and a decent selection of real ales. Campers get 10% off the total bill with a voucher which you can get free from the camp site office.

We loved it.
