The farm is at the top of horn road, having had a look on google maps the approach roads are a bit narrow in places so decided that the more direct shorter route up horn lane from silsden might be better, which it was till we met another vehicle and the caravan wheel briefly went down a ditch but no harm done. The farm entrance is slightly narrower than it could be but once in there is a long concreted road to the pitches.

We were given the choice of pitches with some being on card meter 1, 5, etc, at 12 or none metered which I think were 13, anyway we plumped for the metered one and 2 x 1 cards which with the 90p already left on lasted us the fri-sun although we didn't really have the heating on.

Owners were very friendly and obliging. The views are tremendous. The single toilet and separate shower were clean and tidy, if a bit rustic, the shower is a 50p token and lasts about 5 mins. The elsan looks a bit decrepit but is functional and doesn't smell. Water pressure good. Satellite signal good. Wind can be strong I'm told. Most pitches are grass but a few are hard standing. Noise wise mostly quiet with country animals occasionally making themselves heard. Overall good for the money

We agree with the reviews that mention the relaxed feeling of freedom. This site is in beautiful countryside so there is peace and quiet and a feeling of having got away from the hubbub of daily life.

The views are outstanding. It's a good walk downhill to the village but worth a visit and nice canal down there to walk along.

The pub at lower Bradley is a mile and half or so in the other direction and has a beautiful beer garden and is cosy inside and well worth the stroll back up the hill.

We enjoyed our stay and thought 12 was good value for money in this low key tranquil setting.

There is nothing for kids but for us that is a bonus as prefer sites with no children running about.

Stayed one night to attend a family anniversary. Good solid hardstanding with plenty of space and easy access. Site is at the top of the hill along a concrete drive. Depending where you pitch you may need two electric cables but the site owners can provide an extension lead. Grassed area which is kept short for tents alongside a hedge. No organised children's activities but the footpaths around the area will take you past farms and fields with new born lambs and young calves. Shower & toilet all spotless. 360 degree views covering the Aire Valley and over towards Beamsley Beacon and many footpaths direct from the site. A mile and a quarter down the hill to Silsden which has all the amenities of an old West Yorkshire wool village. Highly recommended and will revisit.

Spent a week here just before Easter and experienced all four seasons of weather in six days. Snow on Tuesday, sunbathing on Thursday!

As others have said this is a very relaxing site to stay on. The views are lovely but then again it is on top of a hill, expect it to be breezy or more. Also remember this when planning your route!

The WC/Shower were spotless and, despite only one of each, never a queue. There is a large hardstanding area but I went onto the grass strip adjacent to the hedge. This could be slippy/soft during heavy rain but the owner has a tractor to assist if needs be.

The owners and their family are very nice and made us welcome. We enjoyed our stay here and are happy to recommend it to others.

A brilliantly remote site near a hill top, with amazing views and scenery on all sides. Very friendly and helpful owners who obviously take pride in keeping their very 'natural' site in tip-top condition and cleanliness.

Delighted to have such a clean toilet and spacious shower (only needed one token) - plenty of toilet roll and even shower gel and hand cleaner!and built into aesthetically pleasing building conversions.

We were allowed to pitch up wherever we chose; there was a great feeling of freedom and relaxed atmosphere. The owner even came out to guide us in as we arrived in the dark.

Nothing was too much trouble and we felt very calm and relaxed during the whole of our (Bank Holiday - 3 nights) stay.

Highly recommended if you like 'natural' style camping with a real authentic rustic feel.

We stayed at this site for eleven nights and enjoyed every minute it is a brilliant little site if you want a peaceful site with fantastic scenery you will not find better there is one toilet and one shower which were kept very clean and seemed to be plenty we never saw anybody having to wait to use them. The farmer and his wife were very friendly and could not be more helpful as were his sons. This is a working farm and we would not hesitate to recommend this site to anybody it is close to skipton, the bronte country at Howarth and the worth valley steam railway. Silsden village is a nice small village where you can get something to eat or drink if you like, we like small sites like this and would love to go there again we loved it
