Fantastic weekend here. Booked last minute what a find. Located next to the River Ure which we used everyday.

The site is clean tidy and the staff are great. We are booking to go back again.

Highly recommend if you like swimming or canoes etc.

Myself and my family have been to Sleningford many times now. This is a great campsite with the added bonus of the river and small beach, spot on for water sports.

Always clean and plenty of space.

Nice little walk to the local village /pub.

The site can get busy on Fridays /Saturdays due to the amount of kayakers. It is in our top 5 sites.

We absolutely loved this campsite! It is very well organised and well kept. We had great weather and had fun playing on the river.

You get given lists of rules for the dog, kids etc when you arrive which seemed a bit overkill but they were all reasonable and the approach seems to work because all adults, kids and dogs we came across were very well behaved! There were a few big groups staying but no bother at all with noise or any other hassle.

Toilets/showers kept very clean. Freezers for ice packs provided and decent little shop.

Only downside was having to keep the dog on the lead even at the river - it was hot so he needed to cool off which wasn't easy on the short lead we had. But this is a small thing - we had a brilliant time and the site is fantastic, we'll definitely be back.

Returned again to this fabulous site I can not fault it at all.

Stayed for 5 nights over the spring bank holiday with our group in the horseshoe area.

Toilets spotless Staff fantastic.

This site is so picturesque.

The children loved the river and beach area.

Not much more I can say such a fab site and all the group loved it.

We will all be coming back again.

Thank you to all the staff

This was our second visit to the site, this time a two night stay on our way travelling further south. Last time we stayed the site was pretty well full during the school holidays but this time was very quiet mid-week before the holiday began.

As last time we very much enjoyed our stay. The booking process (which involved filling in an online form after telephoning) was a bit complex but we know that the site caters for complex group bookings so they have probably found that necessary.

A hard working family running the site do so with meticulous attention to running a 'tight ship'.

Spacious pitches, spotlessly clean facilities (though some distance from the furthest parts of the site) and walking distance to excellent food in the village.

The location of the site makes it ideal for relaxing as well as touring the area.

Just returned from a fantastic 3 days over the bank holiday weekend.

What a beautiful place well kept and clean.

Great staff on hand at all times all ways working hard.

Toilet and showers spotless plenty hot water.

The river runs by the site with a beach all the children loved it.

We where in a large group with tents and caravans in the horse shoe section.

Everyone said this is one of the best sites we have been on a gem.

The only downside was we had to come home.

Thank you Sleningford for a fabulous 3 days we will be back.

Management response: Thank you for taking the time to leave a review - and such a lovely one.

We're glad you and all the gang had such a good time! Hope you'll all be back next year!
Best wishes

Reviewer: Newnatjj 20 reviews from this member

Two adults, two teens, dog & 6 man tent.

Location was great for us, just a 45 minute drive from home yet felt like we were a million miles away. Only 2 miles from Lightwater Valley so we spent a day there during our stay.

Facilities were ample and cleaned regularly; lovely atmosphere on site; wonderful beach area where you can launch kayaks, canoes etc; great information room with leaflets a plenty; wonderful, warm & friendly customer service & fairly priced.

Can't wait to return!

Management response: Thank you so much for your review and I'm sorry we didn't respond earlier. We must not have spotted our last 2 reviews from last season and only noticed them when we checked out a 2017 review.
We're so glad you enjoyed your visit and found everything in good order. We hope you'll be back this year.
Many thanks and best wishes

First definitely won't be the last visit, we camped on the section near the car park as being a wheelchair user not far to get to the toilet/shower. Washing machines available, there is a shop that seemed to sell all sorts from newspapers and wine to fishing nets for the children. After speaking to Judith about the problem I had managing the door she will be speaking to the builder to arrange a sliding door to make access easier.

This really is a lovely site we arrived on the Saturday and it was full but by Sunday it was deserted so peaceful. Always busy weekends and would think during school hols. Told my daughter how good it was and she took her three boys they loved it even without their iPads etc, spent ages playing in the river, no need for a playground. Even in my electric wheelchair I managed to get around most of the site for a walk round on an evening, spotting plenty of rabbits. Hoping to get a long weekend before end of September.

Management response: Thank you so much for your review and I'm sorry we didn't respond earlier. We must not have spotted our last 2 reviews from last season and only noticed them when we checked out a 2017 review.

We're so glad you enjoyed your stay and found things reasonably accessible. We've spoken to the builder and when we have the shower block refurbished, the necessary adjustments will be made. This winter we had the other shower block fully refurbished, so hopefully not too long before we can proceed to the courtyard facilities. Meanwhile we hope we'll see you this summer at some point.
Best wishes

Plenty of reviews here on this site more than adequately sum up the quality of the facilities, good service, friendly owners, beautifully maintained site and superb location by the River Ure. It is all of that and more. We have just returned home this evening, after a great family weekend with four family members and their children, and can not fault the site.

Another loo/shower block further up the site would have been brilliant for us with young children but this is not a negative comment.

The site quietens down at 11:00pm and the only noise to keep you awake are the owls and rabbits at night and the wood pigeons at dawn !

We visited 'Lightwater Valley Theme Park' for just £25 per person on a special offer and next day entry offer (a couple of miles away) on two days of our stay, with the children visiting the 'Treetop Nets' (High Ropes) attraction again at Lightwater Valley this morning (whilst we packed away) and spent this afternoon at 'The Forbidden Corner' (30 minutes away) and we look forward to returning to this site soon.

Ripon is 5 miles away as is Masham and further afield a host of Yorkshire tourist attractions.

Highly recommended.

Management response: Thank you for your generous and thoughtful review.

We're glad you had such a good time and managed to enjoy so many of the excellent tourist attractions in the area. We're particularly glad you found it quiet at night, as this is very important to us.

Hope to see you again next year.

Stunning location, ideal for visiting the Dales but only 15 mins drive from local shops in Ripon.

Site is beautifully maintained and we chose a pitch where we were overlooking the river which added to our enjoyment. They have a small shop which stocks basics, including pre-ordered newspapers. Owner is very knowledgeable about the area and most helpful and available if you need him.

This is a very large site spread over separate areas. Be aware that it will get very busy during school holidays and weekends. A little noisy for us for this reason as we are used to quieter adult sites.

I think the site would warrant 10/10 overall if there could be an adult only section during peak times. Mobile reception is very poor. Not much they can do about this! Thoroughly recommend

Management response: Thank you for your thoughtful review.

We're glad you had a good time and enjoyed your riverside location. We will certainly give thought to your suggestion.

Hope to see you again next year.
