We pulled up on spec to see the 'site full' sign. Drove in and asked at reception and yes there was spaces. Sorry but although we were pleased to get on site it does annoy that these 'site full' signs are left out when it clearly isn't.

Onto the good, its a brilliant site. Decent sized pitches, lovely clean and warm facilities. The Bistro seems popular and a good idea for possibly other CC sites to adopt. Wardens were friendly and helpful and keep the site beautifully. Slight road noise but nothing too intrusive.

We went out for a walk and came across Nidd Gorge. Just a few hundred yards from the site its a maze of over 15 miles of paths along the River Nidd. Really beautiful walks with hardly a soul about and less than 5 minutes from the site it really is worth a few hours.

Its a couple of miles out of town but there is a bus stop outside the entrance. A lovely part of the country and this would make a great base for Harrogate, York etc.

Quality site, extremely well kept by the very nice wardens, the on site bar/bistro gives a warm and friendly welcome, decent ale and good food at a reasonable price, families welcome, children's menu, high chairs etc.

Site office sells a few food items milk, eggs etc as you need a car to reach any local shops.

Mainly hard standing pitches, some grass and I think this site also accepts tents.

Usual caravan site problem with the some dog owners who cannot tell the difference between a dog walk area which is clearly marked and a children's play area. First visit to the play area with the children and I had to remove two large piles of the proverbial. Consequently the children were unable to use the play area.

There is a local pub down the road but it appears closed at present.

Mother Shiptons Cave rather disappointing and quite expensive at 20 for a family of 4 and car. Not great underfoot in places and plenty of steps, so not good for anyone with walking difficulties or prams. Several benches and tables spread about if you want to take your own picnic.

Plenty of shops in Knaresborough and Supermarkets in nearby Harrogate.

Excellent site not far off the A1. Easy to get to but a bit of caution is required as you go out of Knaresborough onto Ripley Road as there is a walled area right next to the road which is also quite narrow - not a problem but worth being aware of it.

Very warm welcome from the wardens who are happy to tell you about the local area and facilities etc. All pitches are reasonably level although the site itself is slightly sloping. The facilities are central and kept very clean.

The Bar / Bistro never appeared very busy despite the site being nearly full, dogs are welcome in the conservatory area. There are plenty of dog friendly pubs in Knaresborough which is about a half an hour walk away. We walked through the woods to get to Knaresborough but this was very muddy so walked in on the road the second time - good paths all the way. There is also the Guy Fawkes Inn a ten minute walk away into the village which is also dog friendly but the pub itself is a bit tired.

Would recommend the site and will be returning.

A first class site, with first class wardens! Beautifully maintained by wardens and volunteers, the site has a welcoming feeling to it. Toilet block facilities are immaculate.

The pitches for caravans are mainly hardstanding, with some grass areas for those who prefer them, plus a field catering for both vans and tents, with most pitches having electric hook-ups. The wardens and their volunteers are friendly and helpful and for those not wanting to cook their evening meal there is even a restaurant on site, complete with bar.

The site is at Scotton, just outside Knaresborough, easily accessible from the A1, and handily placed for trips to Harrogate, York and the Yorkshire Dales. There is a children's play area located away from site traffic and a dedicated dog walk.

Knaresborough is an interesting old town, overlooking a river. It has an abundance of eating places which will not break the bank and plenty of parking spaces at a low cost. I am going back in October!

Can see why this site is busy it is a lovely site showers and toilets usual cc standards. We spent 3 nights here managed to get a late availability.

If you are a walker the walks in the area are not very scenic, we did the knaresbourgh round which is a 20 mile circuit, don't waste your time doing it, the foot paths are very overgrown and muddy.

It is a 30 min walk into town with plenty of pubs, restaurants and take aways. Blind jacks and the worlds end both allow dogs inside. The guy fawkes pub is 5 mins walk from site, it has new owners but do not eat in here food awful, shop bought pies and powdered mash. Food in the on site bistro far better.

We will visit again.

This was our first trip to Yorkshire and we really enjoyed a couple of nights at this site. The whole site was immaculate and the wardens were very helpful. The Bistro served really good food at a reasonable price. Knaresborough is a lovely little town, with a lot of history. We met up with friends who now live in the area and had a grand tour of the town and the castle. There was plenty to see, the oldest chemist shop in England was very quaint. The castle dominates the town and there were even ravens there. All in all a lovely place to visit. Will certainly go back.
