 Excellent site and very friendly people, the shop is very good, take away service too.

We had to cut short our stay due to the virus

But will definitely stay again once restrictions are lifted

Reviewer: Madgeplus2 31 reviews from this member

 Intended to stay for three nights but personal business intervened and we had to go home a day early, which was no problem to the owners who are warm and friendly.

Stayed on the hard standings as ground sodden.

Pitches a little on small side when trying to get on and off avoiding the grass but possible.

EHU, water and chemical disposal all within easy reach.

Full facilities not available in winter.

Less than half a mile down farm road to main road, where buses to Harrogate, Leeds and Ripon run every twenty minutes.

All in all a good site, well placed for lots of places to visit and we would go again but in much better weather hopefully.

 A fabulous stay! Everyone was so friendly and it was all so easy with fantastic communication prior to our arrival.

We were greeted with friendly smiles and given so many lovely recommendations for the area too.

I would certainly book to stay again if in the area in the future!

Highly recommend this beautiful spot

Reviewer: Jimme4 1 review from this member

 This is a great little caravan site. The pitches are all hardstanding and most slope gently but it was easy to get the caravan level.

As we stayed in November, the toilet and shower block was closed. However, Tanya reduces the pitch fee from 20 down to 15 as a consequence. We did not see inside the facilities so cannot comment on the cleanliness etc.

Tanya is a great host and has a very well stocked farm shop with lots of very tasty looking offerings if you do not want to go to the supermarket. That said, there is a large Aldi just 10 mins away.

The site is a perfect location for Harrogate - a 10 min bus ride from the site (about a 10 min walk from the pitch to the bus stop on the main road).

Although a main road, it is sufficiently far away for noise not to affect the site.

There is a footpath through the farm that allows you to walk to Ripley (the last bit is on the road) although we did not use it.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay here.

 Nice site, with great views over Harrogate.

Toilet facilities are clean and plenty of hot water. It was cold whilst we were there, but the shower cubicle stayed warm enough after showering.

Hardstands need a better covering, as there were just large rocks and mud on our pitch. Some form of shingle/gravel is needed to allow full use.

No chance of pitching an awning on the grass it was just too wet. We had planned to use an awning for our teenager but had to scrap that and have them in the caravan with us.

Entrance is easily missed in the dark.

I can see why people rave about this site, but it's not for us. Perhaps a visit in better weather would have resulted in a higher score.

 Beautiful scenery in the lovely little campsite. We arrived and booked in and were welcomed and shown to our hardstanding pitch for our Camper-van.

The facilities in the shower and toilet block, were very very clean, which we were very impressed with. There was also hairdryers and straighteners a radio and electric points for a mens razor. There was also plenty of local information and guides available to look through.

The little coffee shop was delightful with plenty of choice of Teas, coffees and cakes were delicious. You can even purchase fresh meals if you want too.

We would recommend this site to anyone wanting to explore Yorkshire and would definitely stay again.

 We chose this site for a week as it was on the route (and close to Harrogate) for the UCI World Cycling Championships. It's a gorgeous site, and they didn't back us in for the week, there was still plenty of room. There was a lot of rain during the week (the men's elite road race had to be diverted because of flooding elsewhere) but there was no flooding as it's on a rise.

Tanya was extremely helpful and friendly. The facilities are small but very clean and have everything you'd need, and never seemed too overcrowded. Harrogate is not too far away and walkable, but there are regular buses from Ripon and a town day ticket is good value.

The site had a cafe last year (which was due to close), but the shop also had good local produce. We were able to order food for collection on arrival, which was really nice. All in all, a gem of a site and one to go back to.

 Thoroughly enjoyed our stay on their very spacious field. The unisex toilets/showers were very clean and the showers were the biggest and best we've ever encountered.

The bus stop was at the end of a lane (about 400m away) running to Ripon and Pateley Bridge in the north and to Harrogate/Leeds to the south. They run every 20 minutes.

Although there is no Motorhome service point there is a drain for grey water and toilet waste and an outside tap for fresh water. At 20 pn it was good value for money.

The shop and cafe were well stocked and Tanya was very welcoming.

Would definitely return here in the future.
