Reviewer: Harry Bongo 12 reviews from this member

 We don't usually use large campsites but circumstaces (other prebooked site waterlogged) brought us here for our first weekend away of the year and we were delighted with the site, facilities, the owners/staff and the nearby village, all of which far exceeded our expectations of a large site. Well worth the money.

 Just spent a week here at Riverside. Toilets spotless, showers spotless, staff could not be more helpful. Would definitely visit again and would recommend this site to anybody. Thanks again Riverside staff for helping us have a great holiday. If I may make a suggestion maybe for future investment a swimming pool would be a great advantage to the site but that's a personnel preference and not a criticism.

 Just returned from a fantastic break at Riverside High Bentham. The staff could not have been more helpful adjusting our booking and providing excellent service. The campsite is also linked to the local golf club with very reasonable rates and half price offer for campers. The site was immaculate, lovely riverside location and beautiful walking in the locality.

We will most definitely be visiting again very soon. Special thanks to the owner for the communication before booking, advice on golf and providing excellent info. 

Date of Visit: September 2012 Unit:  Touring Caravan
Reviewer: Davidmbell 9 reviews from this member

 Stayed here for two nights late Sept 2012.

As we were staying with friends who we'd never caravanned with before - them in a huge Bailey Senator us in a little dinky old Elddis - we opted to go nextdoor to them and so on a fully serviced pitch - with tv aerial, fresh and waste water on hard standing tarmacked / gravel pitch. We bought the bits to become 'fully serviced' and loved it! No filling up water or being concerned if the wastemaster was full, bliss.

It's a nice, well organised site. Not normally what we'd go for (we're fans of farm / CL / CS sites that are 10 a night) but nice nonetheless. Big rest area when you arrive. Lovely welcoming informative staff.

Pitches were big enough, with plenty of room, for car van and awning. No views really to speak of, other than other vans, and a fair few statics to drive through before the touring pitches, but very well kept grounds, if a bit steep speed bumps.

Shower block was awesome, with an aircraft departure lounge feeling, with piped music! Plenty of room, clean, tidy etc.

Nothing to complain about really, apart from huge list or rules and regs on back of welcome leaflet.

We also struggled to get a signal on SKY and ended up bouncing the signal off our neighbours van (!) (leads for the sites aerial supply can be hired).

Good for kids as playground, and safe speed limit respected.

Nice walk into village (good 10 mins) and we went to Horse and Farrier pub both nights (great place, lovely cosy feel, kid friendly, decent beer, great welcoming staff).

Reviewer: Dieseldonkey 5 reviews from this member

 Stayed here for a few days as it was in striking distance to take kids to Kendal, Windermere and Blackpool.

All in all I was impressed with this site. Friendly staff and in a nice setting. Great play park for kids. We asked for a pitch close to the park and were accommodated.

However the only down side was another caravan was place right in front of us which prevented us from keeping an eye on the youngsters.

Its probably worth paying the extra fore the fully serviced hard standing pitches if you'd prefer not to have your space closed in a bit.

Bentham is a nice village with a co-op and bakers and a few pubs. Railway station is also close by.

Toilet block and showers are excellent with family shower rooms, ideal if you have young children. TV points worked well on the EHU pitches.

I'd certainly use the site again if I was in the north of the Yorkshire Dales.

 Had seen this site when trawling though places to visit and then a local radio station had a 2nights for 1 offer so we took took advantage of it(otherwise we thought it was quite expensive for what we needed)!

The site was easy to get to off the M6, nice big arrival area and lovely level hardstanding pitches. They take a 10 deposit for the shower / toilet block key but it is immaculate!

There's a small shop on site with all your essentials but its only a short walk up to the village for bigger shops and pubs etc.

OH found the on site fishing good, with sheltered pegs. But interestingly no maggots allowed?

Looked like there was a good play area for the kids although we had no need to use it!

Lovely walks along the riverside but watch out for young livestock as they were quite frisky!

We look forward to returning soon!

 We have stayed here once before and really enjoy this site.

Fairly easy to get to from J34 M6 northbound. A65, then turn onto a B road - well signed Bentham. TSatnav found it easily. The road is fine for towing, but narrow in places or if there is oncoming traffic. All fine as long as you take it easy. Once in High Bentham centre, turn right (brown sign). Follow the road for about 1/2 mile and turn right as soon as you go over a river bridge. Again well signed.

Large parking area near reception. Warm welcome. Easy to find pitches and easy to drive around the park. Most of the pitches are either static or seasonal piches. All touring pitches are well marked out and of a good size. There are a number of super pitches.

Immaculate toilet block - access gained by key fob - 10 quid refundable deposit.

Lots of nice walks from the site. Lovely small river running through the site for kids to play in (supervised of course).

High Bentham is a 10 min stroll away. A few good pubs and small shops, butchers, etc - typical Yorkshire village feel.

Reception has a small shop, but on purpose it does not stock too much, so as not to compete with the village shops nearby.

Children's play area and indoor games area.

Highly recommended.

 Just got back from this site and have to say what brilliant place his is. Very friendly staff and immaculate facilities river is just brill fro kids to paddle in and fishing lake looks very good to, will take tackle next time we visit. Pitches are well spaced with plenty of room for car and awning. Showers and toilet block was spotless at whatever time of day we visited. Nice walk in to higher Bentham and couple of good pubs to try, we ate at horse and farrier and it was good quality pub food and very reasonably priced.

Well most definitely be returning to this fab site.

Also. Has a great park for the kids

Reviewer: Janice s 1 review from this member

 Just stayed for the weekend with our grandson. Had a very warm welcome and were given the pitches we had chosen. Lovely surroundings and our grandson could not wait to go on the adventure playground - he said it was 'brill'. Had a hardstand pitch with electic - also a tv ariel socket (we hired a long lead for 1. 40 per night) giving us trouble free viewing for the evenings. The facilities were second to none - new shower/toilet block (with music playing) - lovely and warm and spotlessly clean. Showers have underfloor heating - such luxury.

A games room for the kids - just the job for those wet days. Shop on site, also just a 10 min walk to the village for everything you need. You can pay 2 per night and store your caravan, subject to availability, for the week and then return the following weekend. We Cannot wait to return- could not fault the site.

 Good location few minutes walk from higher Bentham which is small but has couple of pubs, spar, co-op etc. Toilets were fine and the pitch was spacious, fully serviced. Wi fi wasn't working properly and struggled to get a signal most times. Small shop however doesn't need much more with local mini supermarkets. This was our first venture out caravanning so for us it was a good base. Take notice of the tips about the sat nav. We tried to but did take Aaron turn and let's say we had the scenic trip cross country on our way in!All part of the experience!
