Reviewer: Mattthetraindriver 12 reviews from this member

 Great quiet site as it's 95% seasonal caravan pitches, toilet and showers clean and tidy we more or less had the facilities to ourselves as seasonal touring pitches just filtered in and out over our stay meaning it was very quiet, best sleep on a campsite I've had, no screaming kids out till dark or up at 6am! I've got children but I'm conscientious to other campers whom wish to relax in peace after certain times, there's a little garden for children to play or just bat and ball outside your tent, weather was kind and we had sun very little rain, the ground is hard as it lies on the old railway bed so take rock pegs as it's very hard in places, the site is very well placed for Yorkshire peaks and Lake District. The site has a cafe and was busy most times and the food looked good although we didn't use the cafe only to buy a slice of cake which was very nice. There's no pot washing sinks and I was pre warned about but that didn't bother us as we filled up our bowl in the toilet block and washed up in our extension but the owners said it was a job on the list to do, the owners were friendly and offered help when needed but kept a low profile, there's work on a 2nd field for more caravans and a few tent EHU pitches, for 14 a night EHU 3 people car tent extension etc it was very good value and more than half the price of a Lake District pitch, we will if we need to be around that area again will most definitely stay here again, only down side was a mouse that munched through our new footprint, fixed with gaffa tape now, great stay thanks

 We stayed in October when the site was quiet. The Farm shop and restaurant were finished and its great. Its all brand new but with a rustic feel to it as there is old furnishings and high beams. This site is used by us for short stays as its only about 60 miles away but it would be adequate for any length stay and even has a washing machine. Its location is fab and far enough from any main road not to hear the noise. The old railway banks are still there anyway and block out most noise. The owners are lovely and go out of their way to help in any way. They have let us stay over a few hours on Sunday afternoon out of high season which gives a little more time to leisurely pack away and perhaps use the new facilities (Restaurant). The owners have suggested some really nice local pubs to us. You are between Kirby Lonsdale and Ingleton and its still only a half hour drive to the lakes national park. I think most pitches are hard standing and the electrics covered all our needs without tripping. You can go walking straight from the site as it is very rural. 10/10 for this site from us considering the price.

Reviewer: Chapar 9 reviews from this member

 We stayed at this site for 2 weeks in August and were really pleased we chose this one.

We received a warm welcome on arrival and were shown to our pitch. All the other electric pitches were used by caravans/motor homes as all but 2 are hard standing.

The ground is a bit rocky, there used to be a railway line going through the site which is why it was a bit hard, however with a bit of perseverance we managed to get pegged out ok.

As folk have already said the toilet block is kept clean and we noticed even the shower curtains were changed whilst we were there. 2 showers and 4 toilets for the girls. Not sure what the boys had but I understand there are 2 showers for them too.

The A65 is close to the site giving excellent links to the Dales, the Lakes & Lancashire providing plenty of places to visit. We could hear the road from time to time but it was not intrusive.

We really enjoyed the company of the farm dog, Tilly, who visited us twice a day most days once she knew she was welcome. She is an excellent hostess checking up on her guests!

Whilst there isn't a play area the 'Secret garden' provides space for kids to have fun when it is not in use by other visitors and the nearby stream provides areas to explore for the older children.

The farm shop and cafe were nearing completion when we were there. Subject to planning permission the owners, who took over in November last year, would like to put in a few more tent pitches as well as a washing up area. Clearly they are looking to invest in and improve this site so this is definitely one to watch!

There is also a washing machine & dryer to use at a very reasonable price where you pay for the electricity 1 for 40 minutes. The coin box takes 1, 50, 20 & 10p coins. This is a real bonus if you are staying a while and saves precious holiday time not having to find a laundrette!

We had a lovely stay, felt at home and will be booking to stay here again next year. We enjoyed the wildlife, seeing the little rabbits, bats flying at dusk, the butterflies and trying to chase a frog out of the tent. The semi wild nature of the site was lovely and enhanced our holiday so I really hope that this remains whilst the site is brought a little more up to date. We found this to be a peaceful site and really look forward to our return visit.

 Just returned from a lovely weekend at this site. It is mainly occupied by tourers but in the middle of the site is the 'secret garden' and in this fenced area there is space for maybe 4 or 5 tents. Very secluded and quiet. The toilets and showers were spotless and never any queues!

The site is very handy for the A65 and there was a little bit of road noise but certainly didn't disturb us and I'm a very light sleeper!

There is wildlife in abundance, a birdwatchers dream!

No play area but there is a stream and a bit of space near the tents to play and it is very relaxed.

Lovely little site.

 We stayed here at the end of April for 2 nights. Nice quiet site. Site easy to find, easy access on to pitch. We didn't get to pick a pitch, the owner had allocated 1 already when we arrived. Shower/toilet block clean & tidy. The showers have no temperature control & you have to keep pressing to get water as it cuts off after a few seconds.

Location was fine, short drive to Hawes & Ingleton, bit further is Morecome.

 This was just a good all round site for us. It had two areas to pitch both hardstanding and grass. The toilet block was adequate for the amount of caravans and it was clean with plenty of hot water and even heated for those cold in the night or early morning visits! A new shop/cafe is being built for later in the year which will also house another toilet block so its going to get even better. The owners are a lovely laid back couple who are at hand somewhere if you need help but leave you alone if that's what you want as well.

The fees attracted us to this site. I think it still may be low season but it cost us about 14. 50 a night with electrics and awning and 2 children as well.

Access is fine with a caravan and there are plenty of water taps and waste etc. The site is literally a minute or so off the main road to Ingleton but because the site is lower than this with banking as well, you neither see or hear the road. There are plenty of pubs nearby (The Highway man in Tunstall is great). The area is absolutely fabulous as well. 5 minutes into Krby Lonsdale or Ingleton and about 35 minutes to Windermere.

Only one comment for the owners and that would be to install a dishwashing facility. It could be added to the end of the toilet block as there is mains and drains there. I know us caravaners have facilities but its far easier in a wash up where there is more room. Its just a thought but you may have this included in the new blocks plans anyway. (Its a place to meet other caravaners as well)

Regarding child friendliness, I have only given 8/10 as there are no facilities for children to play but the owners are friendly to the children and allow them to play basically anywhere other than the building work which is good anyway. There are plenty of hiding places and things for the kids to make their own fun anyway. There are also walks direct from the site and I think there is a bus service on the main road if you don't want to drive. The site has recycling which also ticks another box.

A great small quiet site and good value thanks.

 We've just returned from spending the Easter weekend at ireby green campsite. On being greeted by the owner we were offered either a grass pitch or hard standing, even though we had booked for the grass pitch. We chose the grass pitch as they said it was a sun trap & she was right even at Easter. On the Sunday morning we had difficulty getting off the grass, I can only think the ground had thawed a bit. I asked them if it was possible to swap to hardstanding for our last night & was told it wasn't a problem & wouldn't charge any extra for it.

The facilities were spotlessly clean & the toilet block warm. 5 toilets & 2 showers each. Even though they had just taken over the site, dairy farm, renovating the house & having a farm shop / tea room built the site ran smoothly. GOOD LUCK will definitely return

Reviewer: Forager66 2 reviews from this member

 When the weather is foul and it really is not the time of year for a camping trip, what you need on a campsite is not just great facilities but a warm welcome!

That is definitely what we got at Ireby Green Farm in November when we stopped for a couple of nights on the way to the lake district. John and Sylvia bent over backwards to make our brief stay a complete pleasure. Their knowledge of the surrounding area, where to eat, what to see etc. Is exceptional and we got to know many of the delights of the Lune valley that we would have missed without their help.

The site is quiet and clean with a good shower/toilet block and makes up part of John and Sylvia's organic farm. You are almost completely surrounded by nature here, despite having easy access and great road links and if you like walking rather than the car, you can walk right from your door and explore the many local footpaths plus some longer routes.

We would recommend a stay here without hesitation, It's a great site! We look forward to spending a few more night there next time we are heading North.
