 Seeing as the last review of last year is mine, I thought I'd add the first of this years. I made a last minute decision to go away for the weekend but thought I'd give this place a try and see if any improvements had been made since my last visit.

Sadly, the toilets are just as bad if not worse than last year, I guess the long winter didn't help but a lick of paint wouldn't hurt. My one and only visit to the toilets found the floor of the cubicles wet, I can only hope it was water but this meant my boot laces got soaked. The water plus peoples muddy boots meant went and muddy laces, just by going to the toilet. I also don't really like sitting on a toilet with a gap in the door so people can see in. I ended up walking to the public toilets up the road at the car park after that.

At least there weren't as many loud people there this weekend, maybe still too cold for them. There were a few groups there but they were quite quiet and considerate so sleep wasn't an issue.

The price to stay here goes up by 50p per person and 50p per car from April. Not the camps fault but you cant even get a signal on o2

 I enjoy walking the Yorkshire 3 peaks and have stayed in this campsite on a number of occasions so my review isn't just about 1 bad or good experience. If you want to stay on a campsite near to the start of the 3 peaks walk, this seems to be the only choice. However, I now prefer to camp elsewhere and drive the 5 miles to the start, meaning I also have to drive back but this means going through Settle and the chip shop.

Anyway, people say that you only pay a few quid a night so you shouldn't really moan but other places cost the same and are far more pleasant.

If you are doing the 3 peaks, you really want a good night sleep but at the weekends this place seems to attract a lot of youths who are just there to have a BBQ, drink and generally be loud till all hours, which isn't really fair on others. The owner doesn't seem to interfere, maybe he wants to be 'one of the lads' or maybe he needs the money. This money should be used to demolish the toilet block and erect something a bit more modern.

Toilets are very basic and the floor always seems to be wet, I'm hoping it's water and there is only one shower, which costs you 1 to use. Bearing in mind how busy this site can get, it's a pain having to queue for a shower after a long walk.

 I stayed at Holme Farm 1/9/10 en route from Lands End to John O'Groats. By this stage I had walked 771 miles in 2 months and experienced many of the highs and lows of camping in UK (I am from Melbourne).

Holme Farm was THE stand out experience for my entire 3. 5 month journey. Chris the owner was friendly and accommodating. When I walked in he sat me down in the incredible marquee and gave me a chunk of pie and a huge mug of tea. Later that evening his off-sider Barry fussed around drying my washing. In the morning Barry made toast and a mug of tea while I was packing my gear, then it was warm friendly farewells as I resumed my journey.

I read some reviews where people complained about the showers. This made me so cross I joined this website in order to write a reply.

The facilities are basic, but so is the price. I thought the entire camp ground was a treasure in its unique and beautiful setting.

Obviously those complaining are expert in sleeping under the stars (most likely 5 of them).

Keep up the good work Chris & co. Hope to stay with you again one day, thanks.

 Stayed 2 nights at this campsite and apart from getting eaten alive by a few mozzies me and the 2 lads I was with had a great time, Chris the bloke who owns the site was spot on and couldn't help you enough, set off 6am to do the 3 peaks but found it hard going, the crown pub was a fine place to chill out later on. The campsite is basic but well maintained by the family and I shall defo be back next year. Well done to all concerned. By the way didn't manage to finish the 3 peaks as all my love of lager and kebabs finally took its toll.

 I have visited this site twice whilst walking the Pennine Way and twice whilst walking the 3 Peaks and it has proved to be ALL I needed each time. Although the toilet block looks a little ropey it is always clean and functional and the shower is heaven at the end of a good days walk. If you crave a row of shower cubicles, laundry facilities, polished tiled floors and rows of pristine royal doulton then you will be disappointed. But you will never be wanting for a lovelier view, value for money or hospitality. Go midweek and this campsite is fantastic. Enjoy the 2 pubs and possibly the best walkers cafe in England (The Pen-y-Ghent cafe). I will, happily, be visiting again soon. Ignore the critisism Chris, keep up the good work; you are packpackers mecca.

 2 nights 20-22 Aug 2010.

Lovely area but was disappointed with the campsite. Not easy to find as there were no signs near the campsite

The showers and toilets were basic and smelly and for the size of the campsite needed more facilities. Showers were not free. There is a 1 charge to use the showers. Liquid soap is provided. Washing area is provided which was fine.

Separate parking for your car which meant trekking backwards and forwards to set up our tent. Never been on a campsite before where this has been the case.

Was also noisy at night so couldn't get much sleep.

Perfect location to start a walk to one of the 3 peaks. If you are in a car go on the Ingleton Trail. Fantastic scenic walk that will take approx 5 hours, but its well worth it.

 This is a busy site. However, you get what you pay for. Its at the heart of the Yorkshire dales, great for the start of the 3 peaks has pubs and a cafe nearby. The site itself is relatively flat all over. The shower / toilet block could do with an upgrade but that just adds to the character of the site! Generally people staying here are doing so for the 3 peaks so the noise usually stops around midnight as they get ready for the next days walk!

I would not hesitate in recommending this site. I will be going again soon. And, the owner, Chris, is a true gentleman. Enjoy

 Great place to stay! Basic but so is the price!

We had loads of choice where to pitch ours tents. While the suggested pitches are a little small our big tent covered two and wasn't a problem. Toilet block is a bit behind but did as required.

The friendly atmosphere was as but did wear a little thin at 4am in morning but to be fair by that time we'd seen off a bottle of JW.

Go but don't take children thinking there will be entertained. But adults wanting to be in middle of Yorkshire countryside it cannot be beat.

Take fly repellent for the morning!

For me 7.5 out of 10

 Friendly welcome from the owner. Unfortunately, he has a penchant for playing cod folk and cod country music rather loudly throughout the day and unless you pitch in the furthest segment of the field, you will be subjected to this until late.

The owner and some mates were making a complete din around midnight stopping us from sleeping. On being asked if it would be possible to reduce the noise a little, the response from the owner and friends was a foul-mouthed tirade, followed by them continuing to shout very loudly about the audacity of someone to request that they be allowed to get to sleep. Which is not unreasonable given that this is the function of the place.

The toilets (housed in an unpleasant concrete shelter-type affair) were not particularly pleasant in the morning. While the owner did leave his party and wander over to them periodically, I could see no evidence of any cleaning being done. The toilet paper was quite nice though.

There was just a single drinking water tap that I could see. A handful of bins spread around the site were inadequate for the number of pitches and I spent some time picking up rubbish that had fallen out of them when they overflowed. Why I did this, given the attitude of the people in the marquee, I'm not entirely sure.

Had a 'no vacancies' sign up when there were clearly lots of empty pitches there. Signage generally comprised messages handwritten (with often appalling spelling) on trays and nailed to trees.

It is unfortunate that this is the only campsite in horton.

 We stayed in this campsite for 2 nights to do the 3 peaks challenge. The first night we got very little sleep due to the noise made by other campers. The second night was slightly better.

This campsite would be fine for groups and families with older children but I would not recommend it for families with younger children and serious walkers.

The owner is polite but does not seem concerned about the noise made. The toilets are fairly grim but I've seen worse.

All in all,not a bad campsite but you cannot guarantee getting a full night's sleep.
