We are no longer with the camping and caravanning club so you don`t have to be a member anymore :-) Everything remains the same other than the ratio of Caravans and Motorhomes to tents which helps us stay open all year now.

We work hard to make The Cud Life Campsite as close to camping used to be when we were kids! We would describe our site as friendly and traditional, with good old family values and respect. The campsite is quiet, with clean facilities and amazing views with lots of sky (as one visitor commented!)

We have 16 well spaced pitches which are a mixture of grass and hardstanding with or without hook up. A peaceful night is our specialty. The site is quiet at 10.30 to allow guests to get a good nights sleep and be prepared to explore North Yorkshire. We don`t take groups (unless the whole site is booked out) and no longer allow firepits to ensure everyone`s safety and due to our current circumstances we are not having our communal fire pit for the foreseeable future.

Our availability can be found here on UKCampsites but if you want to book a pitch you will need to fill in the booking form on our website

Our shower and toilet block is unisex with fully-enclosed shower pods and large changing room areas with each shower, making it ideal for families and individuals who don`t want to get their clothes or feet wet! There is a baby-changing unit, heated towel rails, non-slip flooring, wide doors, wash basins, soap dispensers, hand dryers, toilet rolls, shaver sockets, hairdryer and even GHD straighteners! (Is this camping or glamping?!) You can have the radio on too, to sing in the shower if you wish.

We are so close to the centre of Harrogate but guests often say they feel like they are in the middle of nowhere. You can walk to Harrogate in about 40 minutes or into the village of Killinghall in 10 minutes and Ripley 30 minutes. There is a Tesco local in the village open 7am to 11pm every day.

Having the public footpath going directly through the farm you cant get closer to start a walk in either direction, our favourite being to to Ripley with its quaint shops, gallery, tea room, pub, castle etc We sell local sausage, bacon, fresh organic milk and free range eggs and when our shop is closed we try to have these available in the onsite fridge with honesty box.

You are guaranteed a genuine friendly welcome and support if you need it while you are here but can be left in peace if you wish. genuinely want you to enjoy your stay and will do our very best to ensure that you do and that you keep returning here.

Nearby Attractions

Too many attractions and activities to mention! We have people staying for two weeks who dont get chance to do half of the things they wanted to do in this area.

Harrogate is just over half an hour walk or 5 minutes by car or bus (very frequent) from the end of the lane, with major shops, restaurants, theatre, cinemas and bars.

RHS Harlow Carr, The Pump Rooms, Valley Gardens and The Turksih Baths.

The market towns of Knaresborough, Wetherby, Ripon and Thirsk are within a short drive from the farm.

With the dales on our doorstep, incredible walks and drives through the beautiful countryside. There is just so much to see and do, check out Coldstones Cut for an unusual but free activity.

Newby Hall, Harewood House, Fountains Abbey, Studley Royal and Lightwater Valley theme park all within half an hours drive.

There are petting farms and one of our favourite attractions Nidderdale Llamas where you get to take a llama for a walk!

From Harrogate take the A 61 north towards Ripon. Over the roundabout towards RIPON. Follow road for about half a mile and pass a car sales garage (Motorhouse Cars) on your left. Once you get to the top of the hill you will see a sign that reads RUMBLE STRIPS, our lane is exactly where it reads SLOW across the road here. You will see the farmstay logo and there are reflectors.

From Ripon/Ripley, head towards Harrogate from the Ripley roundabout and pass through the village with Tesco Local on your left, the farm lane is the next left after the 40mph signs as you leave the village.
