 Excellent, lovely site. Very friendly owner who is extremely helpful. The site whilst being 'basic' is immaculate, well provisioned and clean. Despite limiting the number to around 30 people don't be fooled thinking this is because the site is small. The site is a large field that gives plenty of room to all campers. Perfectly placed in between the dales, lakes and Yorkshire. Highly recommended.

 We have only just resumed camping after a break of several years. Just occasionally a strapline makes you go out and buy the product. 'Camping as it used to be' did it for me - I had to go to this place, and was not in the slightest disappointed. Lots of space, the chance to have a fire, friendly fellow campers, the sight of other people's small children chest-high in buttercups, a host who works her socks off yet manages to be great company and attentive. And, of course, a stunning location. We did some gentle local walks, went for a slap-up birthday meal in the excellent Black Swan nearby, and sauntered around the delightful town of Kirkby Stephen. But there's much else to do for those who are fitter than us, or prepared to travel further from the site. A perfect weekend! An extra shower would be good - though I realise the site is not usually this busy.

 Quiet site with lovely views across the Howgills. The village of Ravenstonedale is lovely with two great pubs, both with gardens.

If pitched near to the farm buildings a light sleeper may be awoken early by milking machinery (not intrusive noise, and this is a working farm!).

The site is well laid out with a gravelled car-park where vehicles are limited to if the grass is wet (plenty of wheelbarrows for moving equipment to your pitch). The owner is friendly and helpful.

There was only one other couple on the site during our stay. My only concern is that two toilets and one shower may not be enough when the site is busy, although kept very clean. The static caravan with one toilet and shower also has kitchen facilities and a plentiful stock of local information.

We'll definitely visit again, but will choose a quiet time again.

 We have just returned from a fabulous stay at this lovely campsite and we will definitely return.

The site is one large field surrounded by a dry-stone wall and fields of cows, horses and sheep. It is so picturesque and peaceful and the children loved watching the cows hanging their heads over the wall by our tent and going up the lane for milking each day.

The pitches are really well spaced out so it is very private and each has a fire pit which was wonderful. The facilities are housed in a static caravan which is quirky and fun. The caravan was always clean and cosy and we never faced a queue for the loo or shower.

Whilst we stayed, there were no cars on the field as it had been wet but we loved that. It was an easy walk over the field with the wheelbarrows provided and the site felt more relaxed, quiet and child-friendly with no cars.

The owner was a lovely lady, always available but discrete, a perfect hostess.

We loved this back to basics site and we will definitely return.

 We have just returned from a 3 night stay here with our children and friends, 4 adults and 3 children age 12 & 5. It is a lovely back to basics campsite as stated and as per previous reviews there is only 1 shower and 2 toilets. (1 in the caravan and 1 outdoors) I must say though these were kept spotlessly clean. The owner was always on hand should you need to know anything or need any assistance, my 5 year old took quite a shine to her as she was very friendly and even took him into one of the barns and shown him the baby swallows. He was also amused by being surrounded by all the sheep.

There was 2 small pubs within a 10 minute walking distance, either down the lane or you can cut across the fields, I would advise to book though as we just had a stroll down and found both fully booked. We did just have a drive into the village though where we found a lovely Chinese takeaway called the panda, which we could highly recommend.

Just near the pubs there was a park and tennis court, although you do need to take your own rackets.

The camp allows fire pits which the children loved. The only downfall we found was there was no music allowed, we had our music playing but was asked to turn this off, and noise kept to a minimum after 10. 30.

Overall though this is a lovely campsite if you are looking for somewhere peaceful and quiet.

 Really enjoyed our two nights here, despite the wind and rain that threatened to bring the tent down. Gorgeous views with loads of walks from the site, including 15mins or so to the nearest village where there are two lovely pubs. One of the pubs has a shop (ask at the bar if it is closed). We had a delicious meal at the pub on the rainy evening - friendly atmosphere.

Loved the space on the site, lots of room between tents. Also really enjoyed the camp fires (it was dry the first eve so had a lovely time sitting around it).

Facilities kept spotless, the site was quite quiet when we were there so no waiting for the loo. (There are two)

A site to return to.

 Great little campsite with everything really you need, a place to charge your mobiles, have a shower and sort out the washing up. Not too busy so the que's for the toilets not too bad. Best of all two great pubs in nearby Ravenstonedale which is only a 10 minute walk away across the fields and when you return you can set up a camp fire which adds to the whole experience. Really friendly and accommodating and would recommend to anyone who enjoys a bit of back to basic camping.

 What a fantastic site! As mentioned by other reviewers, the views of the hills are spectacular. The grass is very 'peg friendly' and there are many flat areas to pitch a tent. Owner was very friendly and helpful. To us it's a plus point that cars aren't allowed on the site and we loved using wheelbarrows to carry our stuff. We didn't have to use the car over the 2 days we were there - we either walked or cycled. We will return out of the school holidays when it will probably be quieter and more to our liking. This is one of the best sites we have used. Well done!

 Having stayed here a few times, mainly as a stop-over elsewhere (though we find any excuse to necessitate a stay), I've grown very fond of the place and look forward to spending longer here soon.

It is pretty much our perfect site: lovely, helpful, yet discreet owner Rosie, good all-round views of rolling hills and endless dry-stone walls, basic facilities in static caravan which are clean and perfectly fine, firepits and wood to buy, large flattish site (with undulations).

The all-round farming activity entertains the kids, and the country lane strolls warm the soul. I've never seen the site all that busy so lots of room and privacy. And all that at good-value prices - 6pp.

Some here mention no cars - maybe that's v new or for busy periods as we've always been able to take ours on (though last time moved it anyway to the newish parking area). There's not much to interrupt the wind so can get a bit blowy. Only minor downside for hardcore peace-lovers may be the faint traffic noise from the main road - otherwise perfection in a field.

 This is one of those sites you don't want to tell anybody about !

Simply put it is what camping is all about basic but with the facilities you need shower, toilet, changing room, kitchen area and somewhere to sit if need be.

Separate bins for all the rubbish to be recycled even the ash from BBQ's is recycled.

The site owner and her daughter couldn't have been more helpful. Rosie hobbled round cleaning everything even though she had a hip replaced less than 3 months ago that is customer service.

Reading the reviews one poster mentioned that the owner needed to buff up on her customers skills eg her tone. One word Poppycock I think he may have been in the wrong in the first place or done something wrong.
