Me and my partner Teresa have stayed here throughout 2017 and now into 2018. The views from this daily actual working farm at the top of Skipton are stunning. The owners Martin+Kathy have a beautiful peaceful tranquil site, this is rare from all the commercial sites out there. And to boot lovely helpful people. I do not agree with a previous review. We have had 1 of the hardest long winters on record. That directly affects water pipes + supply. The site is lovely + down to earth, showers, toilets, EHUs, hard+ grass pitches (weather permitting). We take our grandchildren. They love it and play in peace. It IS a working farm and as such respect to the nearby lush fields and livestock cattle in the fields must be shown at all times if going with children for their own safety. Molly the sheepdog greets you with her ball to be thrown! and chickens run free. Around the site. Perfect location and tranquil peace.

We booked here for a week because of good review and we're very disappointed. The owner was busy when we arrived but said he'd see us later, he also said he hoped we had our own toilet as his was out of order. The hardstanding pitch he directed us to was mud and we would have got stuck so we went on another. We couldn't get electric so we had to bother the owner again to come and show us. So far so good but when we went to get a container of water it was brown and dirty with silt in it. We went back to the owner who said we should have filled up before we came and he had never heard of having to provide drinking water. He filled our container from his kitchen tap but when I asked what to do in future he shrugged. We stayed one night and left in the morning. We offered to pay for one night but the owner wouldn't take it saying he couldn't help the weather. We felt as if we were a nuisance and expected 5 star service from a farm site. We often go away in winter and we don't want anything special but this experience was awful

We have just returned from an enjoyable weekend here.

Location is 1. 5 miles from centre of Silsden, here you find 4 pubs, supermarket and shops etc. Taxis are available if you don't want to walk back up the hill.

At the site the view is amazing, you can see for miles. Pitches are not marked out as such so you can pitch where you like for the best view. Some areas grass some stone. EHU points everywhere.

The site has toilets and a shower which were well maintained and clean. Shower is 50p token so remember to buy on arrival if needed. There are bins with recycling, TV and 4g signal good

For a site with so many facilities and a good location, we were supervised that the cost was only 12 for 2 adults and a dog. Electric is on a meter but this amounts to pennies, mainly battery charger in our case.

Owner was friendly and helpful. We were told no set departure time.

As the name says, it is a farm. Tractors, chickens, the farm dog and even the cockerel didn't bother us at all, in fact it was nice to stay on a real farm rather than a concrete site.

We would happily stay here again.

Plus-points as in previous reviews. Nice views (apart from building rubble dumped smack dab in the foreground - perhaps this will be moved before the season is in full swing? ), dog- friendly, good for walking in the area, pleasant owners.

However, the toilet / shower block had clearly not been cleaned at all since the last campers left at the end of the summer, nor was it touched at all for the week of my stay. The waste bins were full, the one toilet roll that was left was damp, the hand wash was empty, the hand dryer did not work, there were dead leaves and a few pieces of litter on the floors of the toilets and shower, and the toilets were not at all clean. It was also freezing.

I also had to move several large piles of dog mess off the pitch before I could put up my awning. I understand that this is a working farm and someone's home and their dog has to do what dogs do, but I did think they might have checked for this when someone was booked in to stay.

I only paid 10 a night, which is good value, and I was the only person staying, apart from one permanent pitch and two caravans that came for one overnight, but even so, I would have expected clean facilities, particularly as this is a Camping and Caravanning Club site. This really let the site down for me.

'Hard-standing' was a bit of mixed gravel and grass next to the hedge. After a very wet winter it was also extremely soft and muddy - not really sure it qualified as hard standing!

I would probably return, but not until cleanliness is improved.

We've just returned from three very pleasant nights at this site, and as it hasn't been reviewed for a while, I thought I'd add one.

We had a very friendly welcome from the farmer, who helped us choose a pitch and explained about the electric. We were lucky enough to find a point with 1. 54 credit, and we didn't use it all.

He advised against the field, as it has been wet, but I did see a couple of people who had braved it. We chose a hardstanding pitch next to the hedge, with a fabulous view over the valley.

The loo block was spotlessly clean and is obviously well looked after, loo roll provided. I can't comment on the shower, as I didn't have one.

There is now an Aldi in Silsden, for those who prefer not to pay co-op prices.

We spent one day in Skipton, which is a short and very easy drive away. We enjoyed the castle, and I recommend the home made cakes in the tea room. We had a lovely wander around the market, the charity shops (of which there are hundreds) and also a short walk along a walkway below the castle between the river and the canal.

We had some really nice walks from the site itself as there are lots of footpaths that go directly from the site. I like to go geocaching and there are some to find very close by.

It is very dog friendly and our dog enjoyed it as much as we did.

It was very quiet at night, and as I said the views are wonderful. And all for just 12 a night.

We received a warm welcome and told us to take our pick of the pitches. We had a lovely view down the valley towards Silsden and Keighley we had a couple of good walks to Addingham low Moor and down into Silsden. The facilities were kept ok and the Electric was on a card and not that expensive. We would go back they say the walk to skipton along the canal is beautiful
