 A friendly welcome, a simple but well-kept site, and quiet after 10pm. This depends on your fellow campers of course, but the management encourage considerate camping (noisy parties who refuse to comply, will be helped off site by tractor if necessary👍)

The pitches were on level to gently sloping grass. The ground soft and fairly smooth, if you're in a tent.

4 mins walk from the village, with a proper pub serving simple food done well, and excellent ales.

The facilities were basic and rustic, but quite serviceable. We visited over a bank holiday, and whilst the site was busy it wasn't overly packed like many sites. However, there were queues for the washrooms.

There were two family washrooms, with shower, loo, and basin. Two additional showers. And 7 or 8 additional ladies & gents loos (wooden latrine huts. )

The ladies had additional basins, but the gents didn't, so it was quite limited if you wanted a wash/shave/tooth brush. One wash-up, plus a further kitchenette with kettle, microwave, fridge and sink.

If this site was £5/night/person, I'd give it full marks. However, at £15, I don't think it was good enough for my (Yorkshireman's) money.

 Lovely friendly site. Great facilities, especially the heated shower rooms in February. Excellent value for money. We were in a micro-camper with awning.

Short walk to the nearest pub, village shops and garage. Great area for cycling/walking. Some lovely villages/city of Ripon to explore a short drive away.

A fab three night stay. Would stay here again.

Very good 👍. Rob.

 Great place, nice and pleasant site. What more do you want?

Definitely go back if I'm in the area.

Vastly improved since I was there before Covid.

Thank you

Reviewer: Campingorganiser 1 review from this member

 An absolute gem of a campsite, quiet location not over grounded and no wardens bothered us all weekend.

No fussing around with marked pitches just camp where you wanted and open fires were allowed.

Other campers were friendly and appeared to be the place to go for children as there is plenty to do in the surrounding area.

There is a little walk into the village across some fields and a play park to be had for the children and a local pub for the adults not to mention the local shop, butchers and chip shop.

Wash facilities are basic and may not appeal to many but the toilets flush and the water in the showers were hot…what more can you ask for.

Definitely worth a second visit.

 Great site lovely country views, nice owners very helpful,

Short walk to pub and local shop,

Been here a few times and will be returning,

Hot tub can be hired and placed by your unit, as can fire pits and logs,

This place is not over regulated with regards to where you park which makes a nice change,

Great littles escape !

 Absolutely beautiful site, full of charm, excellent facilities, clean and well-kept.

Loved the little washrooms and quirky decor touches. Amazing views of the stunning countryside, and very well situated for touring, seeing interesting places and relaxing.

Owner very friendly and welcoming.

Would recommend this highly, and hope to come again. Next time we'll book the hot tub and fire-pit too for added luxury!

 Ivy bank is the most chilled out place and the owner sam was very hospitable. Couldn't do enough for you.

The facilities are basic and simple but what else do you need.

We will be back as soon as we can

 Lovely campsite - great views- very helpful staff -

Facilities clean and accessible- near to village for pub, fish n chip shop etc great nearby walks and places to visit-

Felt very safe camping on my own.

Will definitely go again as still want to visit some places near there.

Chinese takeaway although not used is a real bonus

Reviewer: Farfaraway 2 reviews from this member

 Liked nothing in particular

Disliked disproportional charge of£35 a night, nothing here to justify said fee, just a basic field, poor toilets, noisy party neighbours,

Do not recommend, many better for equal or better price in the close proximity
