 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

 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

 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

 We have just returned from a week staying here. We had an nice large electric tent pitch. Easy to book online with good communication from the owner.

Greeted by a very nice helpful lady who helped us choose where to pitch as it was very wet and muddy on our arrival. We picked this site due to its location and we were not disappointed.

Lovely views and a good base to visit nearby Ripon, Masham & Harrogate. Also some nice walks around the campsite. We liked the quirky/ rustic facilities, the showers were nice And hot. It was very handy having the freezer to refreeze our ice blocks and microwave came in handy too.

The owner Sam was also very friendly. The thing that let this site down was the lack of cleaning, even more so because of the current situation. There were cleaning products in the toilets and to be fair the soap and toilet paper was plentiful, But no hand sanitizer at all.

We arrived on a very busy weekend and as far as I’m aware nothing was cleaned Thoroughly until the following Friday. This really lets the campsite down. It was very quiet in the week And we felt very Covid safe but it did get very busy (and noisy) on the Friday night. The owner did spread groups out around the site to be fair to him but there was Very little social distancing going on, lots of big groups Of 3/4 & more Tents / vans.

There is a local pub which serves nice food nearby and a local shop, takeaway and butchers all within walking distance. We gave this site a 7/10, mostly marked down because of the lack of cleaning.

Although I have to say it is the most expensive campsite we have ever stayed at and for the facilities on offer I do think it is overpriced. £25 for a night out of season. Saying all that we had a lovely time.

 We arrived during the bank holiday to a pretty full campsite and were placed in a nice location in the top corner with electric hook up.

We did not realise the campsite was really good for kids so there were quite a few on site playing in and around the tent (near the tree swing)

The campsite was well equipped although the showers were powerful and plenty of hot water they were not very clean. I felt that during the current times with covid-19 that the upkeep of the toilets and showers should have been sanitised more. I attempted to do this myself but there were no cleaning products around that were safe enough to use.

Nice location and good for the kids (if we had some)
