 I honestly cannot recommend this camp site any more than this, it's so clean and I mean super clean, when they drive through with a tractor they they walk back and pick mud up from its tyres!

The shower and toilet blocks are sparkling and great space too, huge full size toilets, large shower rooms with a push button shower that you just keep pressing (they were wey to hot for me or the children but we just like cooler showers) 5 hooks on the back of the doors for all you dry things then a shower tray on the wall for shampoo, if you leave anything they put it on a shelf as you walk in. There are plenty of sinks for the busy morning rush and tea time clean up.

They have a fantastic kitchen room with a huge seating block in the middle, 2 fridges and a freezer to keep your items in and even labels to keep everything fresh, these were a godsend as it was roasting when we went.

There are another block of portable toilets for a quick wee too on the way to the actual site,

They have a tiny coffee and cake shop that sell hot breakfast cakes and cold breakfast bars and proper real coffee! It was open 7 till 9 when we went but I think that varies if its out of season, they also have a tiny shop in reception for essentials and neither shop nor coffee shop are expensive, we needed some tent pegs and they were 2! Huge coffee cups were only 2. 50 and they have some tables and chairs to use if you eat there too, perfectafter a hot night in tents.

The site it's self is amazing, car free unless your unloading or packing up so it's super safe for the kiddies to run around, dogs are not only allowed to camp with you but there free too! They do have to be on leads but there are walks in every direction. You can pick where you want to pick on standard pitches and your given certain ones if you want electric hookup, there are so many drinking taps everywhere that you don't need to walk far at all.

I've never been to such a well run campsite with such lovely friendly helpful staff and such amazing facilities where we have felt safe and had so much fun we stayed on extra just so we could explore more.

By far the best campsite for miles around and well worth a visit too.

Thanks you Catgill farm for an amazing holiday with great memories made.

Amanda and 2 very happy grandchildren.

 I recently visited Catgill camping site this is my 5th visit now.

I love this site

The facilities are very clean, hand sanitizer on site of the toilets

It's a very quiet site which I love as I have a busy job.

There's plenty to do and places to visit.

I've met some lovely people every time I've visited. The staff are very pleasant and helpful.

 It's a beautiful location and the facilities were clean. As an experienced camper who has stayed at 6 campsites in Yorkshire in the last year, I think it is over-priced. However, we had three children aged 2-4 in our group and there were several safety issues which concerned us. The field in which we camped had a stream - as advertised - but there was a steep drop down to this with a very basic fence which the children wanted to sit on but could very easily fall through. Another steep drop was hidden behind some long grass, without any fencing or warning. However, what concerned us most was when the owner came hurtling past the tents at 15mph (at least) on his quad bike - despite the 5mph speed limit. His attitude - when approached - was shocking. It really spoiled our holiday and is a real shame, as other staff were very friendly and helpful. When the owner's response to a genuine safety concern is, "Go away and don't come back!" then I think the only option is to do exactly that. We won't be returning.

 This is a lovely site for kids - there is a rope swing on the site, and its only about a ten minute walk to Bolton Abbey with its fantastic stepping stones. There is a nice pub near Bolton Abbey, again 10 mins walk away.

We liked that you could pitch anywhere, and that they sold coffee and pastry items in the morning - yum!

You can hire fire pits, which seemed very popular. There was a good mix of different ages and groups at this site, lovely atmosphere. Showers clean and nice and warm.

Although the site was very busy the site team were brilliant at making sure everyone was quiet after 11, we heard them telling someone off. It has a nice spacious feel to the site, and the staff were lovely.

A disadvantage is that a lot of the site slopes - I guess it depends how busy it is when you get there as to how annoying this would be. Some of the site feels quite a way from the loos - although we noticed portaloos for busy times.

Our kids loved this site.

Reviewer: Agis 1 review from this member

 The campsite has fantastic views and location, it is really magical to just sit down near the tent and soak up the view while children roaming around. Our family camped at Cargill with friends and their children three years in a row, but next time we will book in July.

It is great when is sunny and warm but a bit difficult in wind and rain, because there is nowhere at the campsite to go and get dry.

The campsite would really benefit from converting one of the massive outer buildings into a communal space with some heaters and long tables for families to play board games and socialise when the weather is raging outside.

Cafe or restaurant with a simple menu or just a warm space with tea and coffee to recover from the elements? I am looking forward to booking it next year or trying the glamping part with hot tubs and wooden huts and bell tents.

Right next to the campsite there is a fantastic Hesketh Farm with great space for a picnic and lunch, but because of the pandemic, it was booked up. The surrounding Bolton Abbey estate has a lot to offer.

There are some fantastic walks with accessible public footpaths. Shower facilities were clean and easy to access. There is a take away cafe with coffee/tea and pastries open 7. 30-9. 30 am every morning at the site.

I am looking forward to coming back there next year!

 Wish wed been able to stay longer than one night! But it was our fault for booking so late.

The site is wonderful, facilities amazing (best ones weve used I think), little coffee shop on site selling pastries which were lovely.

In such a great spot with so many things to do close by.

Definitely one well be going back to, but booking further in advance to get more night!

Lovely place, defo worth a visit!

 Camped over Bank Holiday weekend. Never seen a campsite so busy so unsure what it would be like without restrictions in place.

The camping field was very muddy due to the recent weather, more importantly very uneven regardless, not many places to pitch that were level.

Facilities were good. Extra toilets have been brought in due to C-19.

Coffee and pastries served in a morning

Close to Bolton Abbey.

Don't bother with the pub nearby as it really wasn't friendly with a poor selection of beers etc.

Would I go back? Maybe

 Stayed in the Duck Glamping Pod, everything you might need included for your stay only need to take food, great additions were hot tub and bbq with pizza oven.

Beautiful scenery, lovely clean site and plenty to do with children who are aged 6 and 3 in close vicinity, we went to Hesketh Park Farm and Bolton Abbey.

We would highly recommend this site, it is quite expensive for a weekend away but I feel worth it and would go back.

The site was clean and tidy with hot water in the shower.

Reviewer: Mum of 5 1 review from this member

 We arrived as a group of 5 tents equalling 22 of us 13 kids and 9 adults to be told to find our own pitch which we did. we were also told not to pitch at the electric points as we had not paid for that which was fine,

It was 32 and putting up tents were hard work with starving bored kids enough without the owners coming and telling us to move them as we were apparently too close to the electric pitch. If they could have been bothered to locate us a pitch in the 1st place I probably wouldn't be writing a crap review, it really ruined our 1st night. Apart from that it was ok clean and tidy.

We won't be going again as all the camp is on a hill and you roll or slide down your air bed at night.

Still a day later feel were on a hill very weird.

Parking isn't very good as it's on a hill and cars get stuck very easily.

Access in and out is horrendous only room for one car so nearly impossible to pass and the lane is long so a nightmare if a few cars are using the lane at the same time.
