 Loved this camp site, despite the changeable weather and a few soakings. It is a big field, nicely sheltered, with some sloping and some flat spots. Loads of room to run around with the kids.

On arrival the camp site was too muddy for us to drive onto so the lovely wardens transferred us on with their trucks. Great entertainment watching cars getting stuck trying to leave and having to be towed out!

The toilets and showers were temporary, like the site, and were muddy due to the weather but the showers were lovely and warm.

The site was 3 miles via road to Malham so too far to nip for a quick drink/shop etc so you had to be prepared with what you brought. The wardens were so helpful and friendly and the poor conditions made for great camaraderie on the site.

My only downside was that there was only 1 sink/mirror in the toilet block. The site was a trial for a month by the NT but I hope they decide to keep it on, we would definitely go again. Great back to basics camping.

 Travelling to Malham is a proper adventure along windy, single-track lanes, rumbling over cattle grids and dodging sheep. It had been a long time since I visited the Dales and I wondered why I had neglected the area for so long. This was to be a short break with the kids. At the end they all said they'd like to go back.

We were met by Mike the ranger who explained everything to us clearly. Not that there is a lot to explain. The camping field was almost empty (Mike said it had been full until the morning) so he said take your pick.

The toilets and showers are portable cabins - his & hers toilets in one and showers in another. The showers (6 of them!) are unisex and very effective. Push button operated, fixed temperature. Very quick to reach just the right temperature. If there was a fly in the ointment, it was the flies in the toilets.

All surfaces are white and with the bright fluorescent lighting, the local insect population was attracted in huge numbers. I'm not sure how this could be combated - an insectocutor perhaps?

Outside the loos is a single washing up sink - cold water only - as is the water in the loos - the only hot water is in the showers.

The drinking water point is near the fire warning chime (bang it with the stick - watch your kids!) Recycling and waste bins by the exit.

Also by the loos there is a notice board with useful info. The NT had organised guided walks which we did not take advantage of. Nice touch.

Unlike other NT sites I have visited, you can park next to your tent. There isn't a car park so I imagine that is the reason. Lots of space for kids to blow off steam. That's the whole reason for coming here - space. It is a pity that the evenings were overcast as the night sky must be spectacular so far from light pollution.

It is a short walk to the tarn and there is lots to explore nearby. For the more adventurous there are many exhilarating walks you can start from the site. A great base from which to discover the Dales.

The pods: there are 3. Two for 3 and one for 5. They do look a bit strange, stuck there at the side of the field together. The fronts face the wall so perhaps they are a little antisocial? While I was there, only one was occupied.

Turn your mobile off, it will not work here. Having said that, I did leave my BlackBerry on and it pinged occasionally with received email. I don't know how it managed that because I could not once make a call. Or receive one :-).

There are no other facilities here - no shop, no gas and a shock for the children, no ice-cream! Soon forgotten. Some will consider that this site, like other NT sites, is not cheap. The ambience is priceless. I hope that the trial is successful and NT will continue to operate this site.
