 This was our first camping trip of the year and we will struggle to find anywhere as good.

This is a family run campsite and the members of the family are all friendly and can't do enough for you.

The barn was a god send for the kids to charge their phones and use the wifi and as people have already mentioned there is a freezer for your ice packs.

We didn't use the little cafe but it was always busy and the prices are very reasonable.

The showers and toilets have a rustic feel and were always clean and tidy, they were cleaned at least twice a day that I saw.

The owners are always at hand if you need anything and they have a wander round each pitch on a night to make sure you are all ok which was a nice touch.

You are not allowed your car on the field so we had to you carry our gear down the hill to find a spot because we were a group of 7 tents and we wanted to be together but if you are on your own there is room at the top of the hill so you don't have to carry the gear as far.

This is a better system in my opinion rather than having cars everywhere.

As we where leaving the farmers wife let the kids hold the lambs which made there day

Thank you for having us the campsite is a credit to you and your family and I look forward to coming again.

 Second visit to this site to try to complete the 3 peaks but failed again. Did walk up Ingleborough and across to Horton in boiling hot conditions. Caught the train back to Ribblehead, pint in the station then short walk back to the campsite.

Enjoyed my stay, shower was superb, site clean and tidy had the place to myself mostly, loved it!

Will go back as I have still got Pen y Ghent to do, hopefully this year. Friendly helpful hosts.

 We have just spent 3 nights on this campsite. We were there to do the 3 peaks challenge, as this is an ideal point to start, as it is directly on the route.

This is a lovely site with fantastic views and good facilities which are clean and tidy. The 2 showers are large with plenty of hot water.

We had a breakfast on 2 mornings which were excellent and set us up for the day.

There is also a large barn with wi-fi and sockets for charging phones etc, also a freezer for ice blocks.

With friendly and helpful owners, this is definitely one of the nicer sites we have stayed on.

 Found the owners very friendly and helpful. A large shower was being cleaned when we arrived, where we found the facilities very good. Bought a full English breakfast from them which you can have at time you choose and is eaten in a barn where there are good facilities.

As we were walking the High Dales Way we also ordered a lunch pack as shops are few and far between in that area.

There was a good choice for the lunch pack and at a reasonable charge, the pack being provided with the breakfast in the morning at our requested time of 7. 15am. Dinner is available a very short walk away at The Old Hill Inn.

 We go here every year for May Bank Holiday. Lovely friendly owners, snack bar open on site during busy times, great for an ice cream.

Good clean facilities, just could do with some kind of flooring in showers. Tent field is on a steep hill so you need to pitch at top or bottom to get some flat ground.

Perfect location for walking up whernside or Ingleborough.

 This was our return to camping after 7 years following a very bad experience with a very noisy campsite. Could not have asked for a better reintroduction. This site is superb.

A quiet site set on a farm. The owners and facilities are great. We conquered Ingleborough on this visit and will definitely be back to attempt the next peak and will without doubt be staying here again.

 My first visit to the Dales and it was a big success. I rode up from S. Wales on my motorbike and the roads off the motorway through to Ingleton and then Chapel le dale were great for a biker.

A friendly welcome from the owners and a clean, quiet peaceful site. I pitched at the top of the slope and had some shelter from the stone wall of the car park as it was quite windy when I arrived. Great view of Whernside which I walked up the following day. The nearby Old Hill Inn gave me a good welcome and I enjoyed a lovely meal and local draught beers.

The showers and toilets were immaculate, with plenty of soap, shampoo, toilet roll, hot water. Also a bench, to sit on to dry your feet, with stacks of room to change in! Something that's missing in a lot of sites. The barn is very useful for many things but I used it to cook my breakfast and sit at a table in comfort, with the view to enjoy.

I did also take advantage of the farm cooked breakfast which has to be pre-ordered, also sandwiches for the trail which I should have done? I have to return here as there is so much more to explore and enjoy.

Reviewer: Jimbob4224 1 review from this member

 I want to to start this review by saying this is one of the best campsites I have ever had the pleasure of camping at. The farmer and his wife were very friendly and helpful, they would come round and see how your day had been on an evening and recommend places to visit, which I thought was a very nice touch.

They offered a pack lunch service (which was the best pack lunch I have ever had on the hills) for 5 each, there was a variety of options, all you had to do was fill the menu order slip in and give it to the farmer's wife before 7pm and she then delivered it to your tent the next morning at a time of your choice!. There was also breakfast option you could order but I never tried that, still a fantastic addition.

The facilities are basic but very clean and kept. There are 2 showers which are huge but again very basic which is all you need in my opinion. There are also 3 toilets which were always clean and filled with toilet roll. There is a barn you can use to sit in in bad weather which also has plug sockets in for charging your phones or using a hair dryer (if you really need to)

The camping area is really well kept, you can camp at the bottom of the hill which is very flat but there is a hill to climb when you need the toilet. Or you can pitch at the top of the hill which has fantastic views of Whernside and keeps the sun most of the evening. You can't bring your can onto the site but this keeps the grass and the site looking very fresh and clean, only a short walk to your car if needs be.

The campsite is a working farm so quite interesting to watch them at work, I can imagine it would keep kids entertained.

There is a lovely pub at the end of the driveway which serves excellent food and is very friendly.

Ingleton is about a 5 minute drive away, there's a Coop there where you can stock up on supplies.

At only 6 per person a night its brilliant value.

If your into your walking and outdoor adventures and want somewhere to camp in the yorkshire dales this is the perfect site. Looking forward to going back next season!

 A lovely peaceful site with amazing views of Whernside - one not to be missed. Basic amenaties very clean and well maintained. Friendly helpful owners ready to assist even though they are running a busy farm.

Ability to order cooked breakfasts and packed lunches a bonus and the snack bar at weekends is great. Dont miss it,

the surrounding area providing great walks and easy access to Ribblehad station extending the walking area

 I visited this site and found it excellent one of the best I have visited with very friendly owners and the walking in the immediate area is second to none.

The facilities on this site are first class with lots of room in the showers, you can even sit down on a bench to dry your feet! there is only one other site that caters for this.

The food from the barn is surprisingly good and the local pub is ok even if they ask you to use the 'lean to' when we were all wet and muddy which you cant blame them for.

Overall we stayed 4 nights and enjoyed every minute.
