What a great weekend! 14 of us tents, campers event shelter all set up. Owner was lovely made us feel most welcome, nice little toilet block and wash up area. Lovely scenery nice quiet pitch. Not much around but we didn't go for that. Great price and booked again to go in a few week, all in all great :-)

Wonderful peaceful location with outstanding views and genuine down to earth great hosts.

The site is a doddle to get to via the A59 from the North or A65 and A629 from the South. We came in from the North and surprising how close such beauty is to the A59

Easy entrance access up a long straight drive to hard standing or grass.

I have an 8 metre motorhome and could get in easily and one camper had a 9 metre American Rv plus a car on the back.

The grassed pitch area is quite unique as you can park as close or as far away as you like along a straight easy access run. Some parked 20 metres plus away.

Electric via card which is very cheap but we didn't need it.

Showers/ toilets were being renovated and looked soon to be finished to a good standard. Very clean

Plenty of space to walk dogs without going near the farm. The owners have a sheepdog which is friendly and always happy to see you

The farmhouse has an annexe cottage with wonderful views that it rents out and worth a thought if you need extra space for friends etc.

Very pleasant run into Skipton (market day Friday) with plenty of free parking on the outskirts for Motorhomes plus a Tesco superstore on the way in.

Ilkley well worth a visit also.

Nice long hill down to Silsden (1. 5miles or possibly less)

There is a taxi office at the bottom of the hill (on left next to the butchers)that will run you back up the hill for 4 (worth every penny after a beer or two) and they will take the dogs as well !

Silsden has a Coop with a few other shops and a good real ale pub plus the usual take aways.

I spoke to two other campers and they mentioned returning as they enjoyed it so much.

The site really does benefit from great views, peaceful idyllic settings and laid back great hosts.

Very hard to beat this type of site for the price if you want peace and tranquility yet close to Skipton, Ilkley etc.

And above all, our two sausage dogs loved it !

Enjoy it

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.
