A basic site with one toilet and one shower, but very clean and carefully looked after. There is a small play area and outdoor benches for customers having refreshments at the farmhouse. We booked a cooked breakfast which was delicious. The views of the surrounding area are lovely and uninterrupted. The site is very quiet - a great place for anyone who likes simple camping on a working farm with a friendly welcome. We will be back.

Found this site after reading reviews and was not disappointed. Setting and scenery superb as was the welcome by Elaine and all her family.

On arrival you can pitch where you want on the field as long as you leave the middle free for the children to play. The field is open to the elements as we found when we were trying to pitch our tent but assistance soon arrived form some of our fellow campers. After you have pitched Elaine invites you in for a much welcomed cuppa and home made biscuits. By this time our two children had already made friends with the family's children and were enjoying bouncing on their trampoline.

Elaine does a range of food and drink during the day in her conservatory overlooking the valley. You can get a home cooked breakfast, lunch or evening meal. We had a steak and Ale pie which was the nicest we have ever had and the children loved the shepherds pie.

There is only one toilet and shower but for our two day stay this was never an issue as the site was not busy but could be a problem if the site was busy.

Our children had a fab time been shown around the farm by Keith ( ELaine's Husband) who introduced them to new born lambs, calves, chickens and goats. There was much excitement when the sheep were been moved to another field and the working sheep dogs gave a marvellous display!

This is a site on a fully working farm so you will be woken by the sounds of sheep and cows early but don,t let this put you off as the view in the morning when you wake up is hard to beat.

All in all the site is well worth a visit if you like a warm welcome with good food and a nice view to look at while you relax!

We will be going back.

Just to note there is no pub in walking distance.

We were a bit apprehensive about camping after a few bad experiences, but decided to give Nun Cote Nook campsite a chance - and it was certainly not a mistake.

The campsite is a fully working farm, with chickens and sheep and run by a very friendly, proper Yorkshire family that know how to make a good cup of tea!

The facilities were basic, but clean and reliable, and the bad weather meant we couldn't have our planned BBQ. However, the food served by the family that runs the farm and campsite provided an excellent hearty meal and place to dry-out on a cold wet (summers) night.

The local towns seem very heavily geared towards tourism, but where in the Dales isn't these days?

The campsite feels like a truly rural haven of how the Dales should be!

Highly recommended.

I have just returned from a fantastic visit to this campsite.

I can only confirm comments in the previous positive reviews from 2007/8.

The view of the valley really is outstanding, and the owners couldn’t be more helpful.

Elaine made us welcome with tea and homemade biscuits and our children were invited to use the trampoline, swings and slides in the garden.

We pre-arranged breakfast in the tea-room on the morning of our departure, which was a great idea.

There is a single hot shower and pot washing room that was kept clean, as was the single toilet.

The site does slope away down the field a little but this was not a problem.

It is a working farm with free roaming chickens and livestock in fields nearby, but in my opinion this only added to charm of the location.

We used this site as a base to visit “Forbidden Corner”, Middleham near Leyburn, this was a great day out for kids and adults alike, but you do have to pre book your tickets as numbers are limited.

Aysgarth Falls is also only a short drive, and this was spectacular (due to the heavy rain, there is always a silver lining!)

In summary this was a fantastic little campsite and a world away from larger more commercial sites I have used recently, and would strongly recommend taking a look.

I will certainly be returning in the near future.

I want to say how fantastic Elaine's hospitality and food was. I was walking the Coast-to-Coast and had caught a stomach bug in Reeth which had left me weak and unwell. When I found Nun Cote Nook farm it was like a haven.

Elaine put me up in her static caravan and made me the most delicious meals. The food and drinks are reasonably priced and the location is beautiful (when I arrived there an art group was making the most of the scenery and cups of tea and cake!). After two nights I felt able to make my way on to Richmond from where I returned home.

The site was a Godsend for me.

We visited this site the first weekend in May with friends and expected it to be packed. As it turned out we had the whole field to ourselves (apart from the sheep) The nearest shop was in Reeth about 3 miles away. But Elaine sells some light refreshments from her tearoom in the conservatory at the back of the house. She also does evening meals.

Our children loved this site especially all the freedom and open space that the farm gave them. They made friends with the farmers children who took them exploring. The Farmer and his wife Elaine were very welcoming and great with the kids. As it was lambing season they let them help feed the baby lambs. He also took them for rides on his quad bike which they thought was great.

There is only one toilet on the site which was clean and tidy. They were in the process of getting showers installed but these weren't up and running at the time of our visit.

The views over Swaledale are outstanding and I would recommend this site to anyone who just wants to get away from it all and enjoy the peace and tranquility this farm provides. (The sheep wake you up about 6am)

Elaine also welcomed us with tea and homemade scones which were delicious. We got there first !
