 Great site with good sized level pitches. Close to main high street with pubs, butchers, fish n chips etc. Right next to river with great walks in both directions. Well kept pretty site with very helpful owners/wardern, nice and peaceful.

We will be back soon.

 We visited this site over the spring bank holiday weekend the site is very well laid out and in an ideal position those that like to be close to the town centre. The site had good clean facilities and although there was only 2 showers in the gents and 2 in the ladies there was never any queuing or waiting around the only negative for some would be that there is a steep flight of stairs to get to them but there was less able facilities at ground level. The site is well laid out with the majority of pitches being hard standing. There are a couple of pubs close by that are worth a visit and a nice Italian (Olleys Pizza Bar) within a 5 minute walk of the site. Overall a very good site and we are looking forward to returning soon.

Reviewer: Sheffield Davs 19 reviews from this member

 We chose the site because of its proximity to the town, and weren't disappointed when we arrived. The site is very pretty and situated right on the river (direct access onto river walks) within minutes of loads of cafes, shops and pubs as well as having access to all the fabulous walks.

Facilities are limited, clean and well maintained but up steep steps.

The wardens are pleasant and helpful and pitches are roomy and flat.

Lots of dog friendly options for eating, would really recommend The Royal Oak and the Crown as well as the Pancake House for breakfast and lunch.

Fabulous round walk via Brimham rocks highly recommended.

 Just returned home after spending a whole month at this wonderful site, so peaceful and such a lovely location. The facilities are second to none spotless all the time and our hosts very friendly and helpful. Although there's no shop on site its only a short walk into the village with ample shops cafes and pubs serving good food and one of the best chip shops going. Will definitely return.

 A beautiful site with a fantastic location. We had planned to stay 2 nights but ended up staying for 5. There are lots of brilliant walks from site all around Nidderdale. The staff on site are very friendly and helpful and the facilities were very clean. Next door is a park with a great space to let the dogs off and also a separate children's play area. Many of the pitches were seasonal or statics. You can walk in either direction alongside the River Nidd, one way goes to Pateley Bridge and one goes to the village of Nidd. We can recommend the Bridge Inn at Corn Close, the Royal Oak, just near to site, and Olly's Italian Restaurant also near the Royal Oak. The 2 butchers in town sell pies to die for.

 Brilliant site with friendly staff. Location is brilliant with plenty to see and do. Shops and pubs a short walk away and a smashing couple of sweet shops. The facilities are very nice and always clean and tidy. A short drive away is Grassington Burnsall Harrogate knaresborough and Ripon. A site I will always give credit to.

 Really friendly site, enjoyed our stay here, flat pitches grass or hardstanding, next to Park with dog exercise area children's playground. Just a short stroll through the park along the river Nidd to the town with a variety of shops, chippy, pubs & teashops. We enjoyed a great meal at the Bengal a nice Bangladeshi restaurant. The Nidderdale museum in town is open in the afternoons is well worth a visit for those interested in local history as well as a good selection of craft workshops. On the site the toilets & showers clean and well maintained with fragrant flowers creating a cared for atmosphere. There are many footpaths directly from the site and nearby access to the Nidderdale way. There is good phone signal in the area.

A really nice site.

Reviewer: Yachty 19 reviews from this member

 We were here for four nights, the caravan park is very well laid out and all hard standing, which was just as well with the amount of rain we had on the first two days. It is very close to the town of Pateley Bridge so shopping for provisions is no hardship. There are also numerous pubs in the town, we walked to Wath along the river (about two miles) and had lunch in The Sportmans Arms, fabulous food and real ale in beautiful surroundings. The only down side as far as we were concerned was the low amperage which was only 10 amps, it took a bit of juggling with the heating, tv and kettle and I had to reset the trip numerous times. But we did learn to cope and just turned off stuff when using various electrical items. We will certainly be visiting again as the walks around there are brilliant. Lots of cafes in the town as well as a great bakery and two very good butchers.

 We visited Riverside Campsite for 8 days in July 2015. The site was busy, however there was plenty room for everyone, and we never felt crowded. Neil and his wife that run the site were extremely welcoming, and couldn't do enough for us.

The site itself is set in a lovely location, the end of the caravan park borders a lovely big park, complete with children's play park, bowling green and bandstand. The river runs the whole length of the park, and there are several paths round it. The park is located only a few minute's walk from a very reasonable and well stocked store, and the town is only a few minutes in the other direction. There are swimming baths located within walking distance of the park, and a few places to eat. Within easy driving distance are several attractions, including Mother Shipton's Cave and Lightwater Valley theme park.

Riverside is spotlessly clean, the owners take care and pride in their site, and make their vistors feel like valued friends. The toilet blocks were kept very clean, as were the shower rooms, and there was plenty of hot water available. The site does not have a games room or similar, however free wifi is available for guests as long as they are near the reception area, and dish washing facilities, and a very cheap laundry are provided for use.

The only negative is that I am told that the site is quite low voltage - we did not have any problems ourselves, but it did take a while to charge phones etc, and my brother couldn't use his electric grill.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this site to anyone visiting the area, and will personally go out of my way to visit here again as soon as I can.

 Just returned from this lovely little site. The owners are very friendly, facilities extremely clean. My only niggle is showers were extremely hot. It is very close to the little town with its array of small shops. There are some pleasant walks from the site in all directions. We found a lovely italian restaurant, Ollys, which was very nice, lovely food and atmosphere. We will certainly book in at this site again. Keep up the good work.
