 Lovely site for an overnight stopover but a not ideal for anyone without a car.

The site is easy to find as itís about a mile along the A66 from Scotch Corner. It is not on a bus route and has no walking access to a village shop or pub. This is fine is you like to take your motorhome out each day but no good if, like us, you have a walk it or bus policy for getting around

Upon arrival pitch availability was very limited. The one we chose had a very steep incline up to it which meant we had to be very careful of the under slung water tanks. The other 4 or 5 available pitches were in a row behind one another and had no outside sitting area at all. Not ideal if staying more than one night.

COVID restrictions meant information kiosk, childrenís play area etc were badly affected but this is not the fault of the CMC. The covid restrictions for the toilets showers were very good but only as far as the members using them. Guests left bands hanging on the hooks and walked off or got to the facilities, found they had forgotten them but still used the toilets. One particular lady did not use hers at any time whatsoever. Again this is not the fault of the site

Itís the site is so isolated I cannot see us using it for anything other that one night stop over

 We only stayed one night as a stop over to York. The site has everything you would expect, well maintained, excellent toilet facilities, which are using a band system, 3 people allowed in at a time so as to help with social distancing. We were fortunate the evening we stayed had a glorious sunset.

This is a well maintained site and would use again wether for a stop over or going to explore the area for a few days.

The only thing was the WiFi if you donít have 4/5Git is rather expensive, you have to log onto an unsecured site to pay with a card (hmmm)

We donít really know how child friendly the site is as we didnít have children with us and it was within school term time.

 On arrival at this site we were greeted by very friendly Wardens, who told us which pitch to go to and that they were operating a 'band' policy regarding the shower block.

The site is extremely well kept and is a credit to the Wardens, as are the shower blocks. The band system works well, and everyone kept their distance.

Limited dog walks from the site, although the site does has its own small dog walk.

Lovely view from the site and idea for exploring Swaledale.

We would definitely visit again if we are in this area.

 Excellent site, 15 minute drive from Richmond and about a mile from Gilling, a lovely village with two good pubs.

Friendly site wardens and immaculate facilities.

Good base for Swaledale.

 Easy access fom A66 so a very well placed site for either an overnight stop or extended stay. Stunning views over the valley. Grass pitches at the top of the site can suffer from road noise but the ones lower down the site are fine.

Facilities very clean, very much like other Caravan Club sites. Standing in the shower or toilet block you could be almost anywhere in the country.

There is a lovely walk down the steep hill to the nearby village. There are also walks across the fields to the north if you cross the A66.

 Stopped here for a night on the way north to Scotland and then again on the way back.

Excellent facilities, easy to find the site, friendly staff, ideal stopoff point or to spend longer touring North Yorkshire & County Durham.

 Wonderful site and facilities very well kept by super wardens. Thank you for a fab visit.

The site is slightly sloping so take a wedge or two.

Richmond has lots and lots to offer from interesting shopping to castle and walks. Do not miss the old station!

 We visited here on our first stop of our journey the couple who booked us in were friendly and helpful we were given 4 choices of where we could put our caravan they were helpful with what was near to us.

The site was small but well kept toilet and shower block were amazing so clean. Would recommend this site and would definitely stay again.

We found the staff here so nice. No issues with anyone. Very helpful throughout our stay.

 Convenient site just off the A66. It makes a good base for Swaledale and Richmond, but you ideally need to have a car to enjoy the area from the site.

Facilities on site have been recently modernised.

Nice site, lovely wardens.

Reviewer: Dot P 621 reviews from this member

 As said in previous reviews this site is right on the A66, so some road noise. The facilities are brand new - all updated and kept immaculately.

Pitches are large, mainly hard-standing on gravel but a few grass pitches near the road and two in the middle of the site.

Nothing really close to the site other than the road, there is one walk down a lane but other than that its not ideal for walking, cycling.

Reasonably priced site at £17 for 2 adults with ehu, for us the proximity to the main road made it a one night stop over only
