 The site is well kept and in a lovely position with views over the fields.

Toilets and showers were spotless.

Paul is very friendly and helpful. The location is very quiet and you do need to drive to pub or shops, but we knew that and so it was not a problem for us.

We intend to return.

 Had a lovely relaxing weekend. Small site with limited but modern and well kept facilities.

Paul, the owner, was very welcoming and friendly.

No pubs in walking distance but not far from there is the bull inn with a fantastic riverside beer garden

 Lovely little site. Spotless and clean. Very friendly.

1st time here, already booked to return August. So peaceful.

Nothing was too much trouble. Only 12 places but that's just perfect.

Stunning views

 My family ( 2 a, 2 kids) have just spent 8 wonderful days at this lovely caravan site and we donít want to leave. The site is a big field behind the farm buildings with fabulous views of the countryside and miles and miles of sky.

The 12 plots are well spread out and only along one side of the field so everyone has plenty of room and lots of grass in front to kick a ball about or just relax. 2 toilets and 2 nice hot showers are well kept and Paul who runs the site is friendly and hard working to keep the site in tip top condition.

We used the site as a base to explore North Yorkshire including Brimham Rocks, Forbidden Corner, several abbeys and market towns, the Seated Man and the North York Moors and even the East Coast. However, on our last day we decided to pop up to Bedale for supplies then spent the rest of the day simply enjoying the peace and quiet ( and sunshine ) of Howgrave Hall.

This was our second visit to this site and wonít be our last. Great value for money and a little slice of Yorkshire heaven. Thank you, Paul. See you next year!

 This was my second visit to this site. I only go back to the good ones, and will keep going to this one. I can't fault this site, its quiet, clean, got great views, shower and toilets are spotless, good space between pitches and friendly.

Well placed for Ripon, Masham, the Hambleton Hills, Lightwater Valley, Wensleydale and the A1 (which can't be seen or heard from the site). There are no hard standings but the field is well maintained but with slight uneven patches.

If there's a downside I suppose it has to be a nearby race track which I believe can be quite noisy on a race day. I've never been the during a race meeting so can't say but I'm sure Paul would be able to advise you if one is planned during your visit.

The village doesn't have a shop or Pub so you need supplies! No attractions for children.

This in my view is an excellent site and great value.

Reviewer: John+judy 109 reviews from this member

 An excellent site for those looking for peace and quiet. Apart from owls, grouse and the twice daily formation fly-past of the geese there was zero noise.

The last couple of hundred metres of access lane are very narrow, and the owners therefore ask for departures before 12 and arrivals after 1pm, but as it was low season we arrived at 11am with no problem. In fact we never met anything on the lane during our six days.

Our days out included visting Ripon and its cathedral, Fountains Abbey/Studley Royal and the Wensleydale railway from Leeming Bar to Redmire/Castle Bolton.

We only found out on our last day that entrance to Lightwater Valley theme park is free for over 60s, but we will take advantage of this next time!

As others have said the owners are very friendly and happy to chat.

 Spent a lovely 4 nights at Howgrave Hall Farm. We received a warm welcome, pitch up and pay afterwards.

The site is basic being a farm site. The field is fairly level and each pitch having EHU points. Pitches are a good size so campers are not on top of each other.

Shower and toilet blocks are located at the edge if the farm house and showers are red hot. Lots of bins provided to dispose of your waste and recycle where possible. Water and elsan point (chemicals provided if you don't have your own)

We arrived on the Sunday and after setting up we were visited by the organisers of the local car race rally with an offer of free tickets (due to noise pollution)

We found ourselves driving everywhere as there is a lack of local shops (this we didn't really mind as it encouraged us to explore local villages and towns)

Picnic benches are provided on site which came in useful on our final evening when we had a BBQ

We really liked the flexible arrival and departure time which allowed us to arrive first thing making the most of our first day. We'd planned to leave on departure day later in the afternoon but due to poor weather we left early.

The site is very quiet making it perfect for a peaceful retreat, the owners are helpful and even came to say goodbye as we were leaving

Only negatives were lack of mobile signal but we were able to use the farmhouse phone free of charge if needed.

Rates are very competitive £12 per night for the caravan, awning, two adults & dog

Reviewer: Jan99fm 1 review from this member

 Just spent Easter weekend at Howgrave Hall Campsite, what a peaceful and picturesque site it is. 2 Toilets and 2 showers are clean and tidy and ample for the small amount of caravans.

Never heard any noise from the farm and the field is big enough for kids to play well away from caravans. Will certainly be returning, a little gem of a place and a bargain too.

Lots of lovely places to visit roundabout, Masham was lovely and had a market on Saturday too. Had a lovely Sunday lunch at the Green Dragon in Exelby which is not too far away.

It's a basic site no frills but the views from the bottom of the field are fabulous. An unusual road to reach the site but well worth it.
