 A beautiful location in a stream's valley. You can walk from the campsite onto the moors and up to Wuthering Heights and the Bronte Bridge and falls.

Blissfully quiet when we were there.

The shower was excellent and modern and hot! The toilets a little more simple - 3 for women, 1 for men - but clean. Washing up facilities are open air which is lovely on a nice day, but less so when raining.

The best local village pub was the Wuthering Heights in Stanbury, only 20 mins walk away.

The bus to / from Haworth also runs from Stanbury.

 Having read so many reviews of this place before turning up I had an element of worry as to how we would find our stay here. I very much needn’t have worried, it was our kind of place.

When we go camping we want to feel immersed in nature, we want to feel outdoorsy and like we’re practical people but we choose campsites rather than wild camping so that we can have a loo and showers (we aren’t that practical in reality)!

The shower was lovely and warm (and most importantly not on a meter), the toilets ran smoothly and there was running (cold) water to wash up in.

The site was phenomenally beautiful and the stream at the bottom provided free white noise for our 3 and 1 year old to sleep to!

All of the reviews stating ‘disgusting’ and ‘dirty’ I think are wrong. The buildings that house the facilities are fairly old, there’s a kind of wonky 90’s feel to them, but they are not dirty. I think recognising that difference, that clean doesn’t have to mean new, is a useful one.

Camping is an outdoor hobby, I think reviewing a campsite like it should be a hotel is madness! It rained for days while we were there, all of our stuff is filthy, but we had the best holiday.

Haworth is minutes away by car and has all the lovely food and coffee you might want but there are much closer pubs for walking to. Walks from the campsite meant not using a car was possible too.

 Great place to camp while walking the Pennine Way.

No shops or pubs close by (nearest pub about 1 mile away} so stock up before you arrive.

Tent pitch is only small so best to book in advance.

 Idyllic spot and made to feel very welcome, thank you!

A few hook up, hard standing, spaces for motorhomes (ours is 8m long) and some lovely, by the water, spaces for tents.

Several nice walks to the Pennine Way,

We’ll be coming back with more time.

 Hi Bit of a mixed bag here. John the campsite owner manager was great, very helpful and pleasant. He said prior to the visit that the loos were closed due to covid etc, they didn't exist.

The hard standing smelled and was obviously the scene of a previous fire with rubbish and black stuff under the surface leaving stains on the groundsheet.

The chemical disposal left a bit to be desired and the drainage seemed poor.

Generally it felt neglected but it was ok for a stop over. Sorry John but it felt as if your heart wasn't in it anymore. All the best for your future.

 Quiet site next to a stream. Very pleasant and helpful site owners.

Good for a short stay with some lovely walks nearby, and the town of Haworth.

Facilities basic but adequate.

Due to Covid restrictions we didn't use toilet / showers provided, just our own in the caravan so cant comment on those.

 This is a basic site, only (very clean) portaloos, no running water, but that was OK we knew that before we booked.

A field high above Trawden with fields and hills behind we had great views and there is good walking from the site.

Had a lovely evening here with a roaring campfire under the stars and blue moon. We didn't get into Trawden,

Unfortunately the pub was closed because of covid but we will definitely be back so hope to visit it then.

 Stayed here for one night.

The owners were very friendly. We were able to pitch our tent by the river - in the perfect spot for the sunset.

Facilities were decent and clean. Beautiful surroundings. Very peaceful.

Will definitely visit again and absolutely recommend this site!

 We arrived Saturday morning to pitch the tent and the owners were friendly and helpful,

My grandson is 2 and the owner put a gate across the opening to our pitch so he couldn’t run onto the road, super nice of them,

Facilities were basic but clean, shower was lovely and warm,

Site was next to a stream and lots of beautiful surroundings,

Had an awesome camping trip and it was Noah’s first one,

Defo going again and it was only £10 per night!

Reviewer: Bodie Clayton 1 review from this member

 This site has a lot of potential but perhaps it appears that the owners have lost interest a bit or are too busy doing something else.

The site is in two halves, the first is basically a tarmac car park the second is grass, gravel and woodchipping mix which actually is a bit muddy as there isn’t enough of any of those other things to sort it out. There is a single gents toilets, 3 female toilets and a shower. The shower is the cleanest with a new curtain and loads of space while the gents was clean as long as you don't look up and a little tired.

There is one water point near the house as you come in leaving you thinking surely it needs another tap at the other end of the site. We couldn’t find the wastewater point, it was neither signed nor obvious nor was there anyone around at the time to point it out. What really lets this place down is neglect - the pile of soil dumped on the walkway, the scrap used timber lying on the car park, plant pots with half dead plants in them. At £26 per night (2 adults and ehu) we found it overpriced and won’t be hurrying back.

When we went it was really windy the first night then the second night was still the only problem being the amount of bugs and midge. Make sure you bring appropriate spray and protection and hope for strong winds!

The nearby pub the Silent Inn has shut down but there are two further up the road in Stanbury. Our favourite was the Wuthering Heights as they have made an effort with a really nice outdoor area.
