Reviewer: Caldey10b 1 review from this member

Brilliant little site. We arrived on a Saturday evening at the height of the 3 peak challenge, it cost a grand total of 6 for the pitch for the night. Whilst all the other sites in the village were chocka block and noisy. This site had just 2 tents on it inc ours, The site is basic in so far as a toilet block and wash house, but the peaceful position compared to the noisy sites in the village made it all worth while. If walking into the village there are 2 routes to take one via the rd you came in on (prob about 1-1. 5miles) or across the river via a wooden bridge the across a field (note remember to bring a torch and remember your bearings if you've had a few cheeky scoops in the pub. This site is near a river so if you're Prone to midge bites I'd come armed with insect repellent

Very pretty camp site, clean with lovely all round views. There are five toilets to cover four fields, not enough, but they were very clean. Although a very pretty site we would not recommend site if you have young children, the river is fenced off with barbed wire all along is bank and there are a few small gullies leading from river across the middle two field. We found we could not relax and were telling the children to keep away all the time, just found it really hard work with no time to enjoy playing with children has we should have been. As a result we only managed to stay one night out of our weekend. The site owner was not very helpful, we could not find any bins, we were not informed where they were, had to go and look for the owner who seemed put out at being disturbed all in all very disappionted and we will not be going back

At 3 per person in June, free parking and wonderful views, you really get a bargain here!

The views are very good (they would have been superb if two lines of trees didn't obstruct part of the 360 degree views!), and we faced our tent to enjoy the fine view of the river close by. There is no traffic noise since the site is well away from any roads. However, since the railway is close by, with a pedestrian crossing near, you do have a train hooting about every half hour.

Facilities included three toilets with cold water sinks, a couple of showers, and a covered washroom with cold water next to the primary tent field. Two more fields are available (with extra toilets) for busy times. Hygiene was good. And not a single scrap of rubbish was to be found anywhere on the site! Oh, and the grass was three inches high, and about to be mowed again as we left.

On our Monday in June there was just one other tent in our field, and a caravan in the second field. Apparently there were sixty people in the fields on the previous Saturday.

We would both highly recommend this beautiful and peaceful site. Unless you need hot water, free showers or a shop!

A great little site about a mile away from the main village. Yes it's basic but at 6 for two of us per night over a bank holiday we weren't complaining.

Very picturesque and away from any main roads - the railway line is very close but the trains don't run that late and there didn't seem to ever be more than one an hour.

Horton is about a 15 minute walk away over the fields and it's worth knowing that there's a handy mobile shop when you walk to town that way just as you reach the houses.

Facilities all very clean - only gripe is that the 50p shower lasted about 90 seconds before it went (very!) cold. That said it certainly wouldn't put us off staying again - as well as being near the 3 peaks places like Settle and Hawes are very easy to get to.

This campsite is fab! Owners very friendly but stay away but are always a knock at the farmhouse away, it is quite and peaceful, lush green, soft grass and ground I didn't use my hammer. It has a converted out house one side is a toilet and sink cold tap only, the other a pot washing with 2 sinks and a converted electric shower unit on the wall with no shower head that produces hot water to wash your pots up. There are portaloos 2 by farmhouse and a portable shower block with 2 showers went in to have one but you need 50pence coins which I didn't so, went and had all over refreshing cold wash in toilet which was quite refreshing as we'd done part 2&3 of peaks. The views around when weather is clear are great Pen-y-Ghent in the back drop, there are 4 fields to choose from last field at the bottom which had all the caravans it had a portaloo unit, all fields are a very big size so you can pick anywhere there are slopes but the fields are big so flat spots are never a shortage. Its a 15-20min stroll along road or field to Horton.

Its basic camping and not for everyone if your a glamper, but its made up for the beauty of its position. Its by the river so midges were present so a hat or hood is a must and Avon so soft dry oil spray a plenty coz we forgot it and got bit, but that won't put us off from going again.

We had a group of 5 tents with 20 odd yrs old for one night whom we're noisy for a couple of hours till midnight ( why do these people come camping go stay in a travelodge and great drunk elsewhere) but upon speaking to the farmers wife in the morning whom said we should have knocked at midnight! Which we didn't, she told her husband and within 5minutes he told them to pack up and leave at 8am! Ha!

If you go turn left or right by Horton station and after 400-500 yds go left at the fork in the road as right under a tight bridge takes you into Hansons quarry! At 3 per person a night its a steal We will return as it suits us and is far by one of the best sites we, ve stayed at in the area.

Great little camp site with friendly owners, hidden away just out of village. Only three toilets on top field (one permanent and two portaloos)but were very clean. There was another block of portaloos further down site but I did not visit them. Free hot water in wash up area but showers were expensive(50p for less than 2 mins) and erratic hot/cold.

Nice 20 min walk to village over bridge and across fields. Great views of Pen-Y-Ghent and an occasional steam train passing on train line along side site, other trains on line weren`t a problem to us.

Overall we thought it was a good basic site at a bargaiun price, 3. 00 person per night! We would certainly go back again when we are in the area
