 Great weekend again at this fabulous little site. Its so beautifully kept

Everywhere and Andrew and his son are so accommodating. Pately is a mere 20 minute walk from the site and has everything you need. If you want a relaxing weekend away book this place. It won't let you down.

 Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The site is very clean with toilets and shower blocks that beats anywhere else we have been. Even had baskets of essentials in the toilets eg shampoo, deodorant etc free of charge. The scenery is to die for with a lovely local pub 2 mins away. Could only stop for one night due to work commitments but will definitely be back for longer as soon as possible

 Fantastic site, well kept pitches, spotless facilities and pleasant helpful staff. A pleasant walk through the countryside into Patley Bridge and a nice pub just a short distance away where you can get a good meal. We will definitely be visiting again.

 This is a very pleasant site. As has been said, Andrew keeps the place immaculate and everything is to hand, with water, electricity and television at each pitch. The sanitary facilities are fine, though two toilets and one shower for each sex might prove a bit meagre if all the seasonal pitches were occupied.

The approach road from Pateley Bridge can be a bit of a trial, especially the last 500 metres.

I can't recommend the restaurant at The Bridge pub; we went there for dinner and there was a complete lack of ambience and they had no desserts to offer us - claiming they'd run out at lunch time! The bar is okay though.

 Had a really nice weekend on this lovely little site situated just a pleasant 2o minute walk from Pately Bridge. The owner Andrew is such a nice man with a smile always on his face. The 5 or 6 hardstandings are all the same size, nicely backed up against the drystone wall. Toilet block was kept immaculate all weekend with a first class shower included in the 20 per night cost for caravan, awning, car 2 people and 2 dogs. No extras. The grass cut immaculate and the grounds around the statics kept to a very high standard. You can walk any direction here up into the hills, down to the river, over fields, anywhere you fancy and its just great. The Bridge Pub is a 4 minute walk if that, then you have more pubs, restaurants, takeaways etc in Pateley Bridge. If you, ve not been on this gem of a site you're missing out, I would recommend it to anyone. Whilst we we there Andrew was cutting one of the fields in readiness of his daughters wedding in a marque. I wish he'd asked us to attend. The views from the field are amazing. Thankyou Andrew for a really fab weekend.

 The tent field is flat, grass well cut, in a lovely secluded area. The static caravans are really unobtrusive - we heard no noise at all. One side of the field {which is long and narrow) has electric hook ups, but the other (where we camped) has no electric and is on the side of the small entrance road and river. You can camp against the wall for shelter. The river drew some midgies, but with protection they shouldn't bother you. There were very few tents when we were there, so it felt quiet and peaceful with lovely views around in fantastic weather. The rustic facilities on the tent field were great - 2 loos, a washbasin closet, a washing up sink, a freezer for ice and waste facilities. The facilities block which is in the caravan area is spotless and has everything you need - you are given an access code on arrival. We didn't use the small shop, but it looked well stocked. A farm building is being used for badminton, pool etc and is quite an atmospheric space. Although it feels really off the beaten track, there is a pub less than 5 minutes walk away. It was totally empty except for us on the first night, and very few people on the second but that was ok. I can imagine it gets busy in the summer. There is a wonderful easy walk into Pateley bridge to get your shopping. A trip to Brimham Rocks is a must - felt like Jurassic Park crossed with Monument Valley! And Coldstone Cuts was a fantastic surprise - wasn't expecting that!

 First visit 2013, have heard site has been updated since then.

The camping field had very few services apart from toilet and wash up area. The shower block was up a hill just a short walk away. Together with washing machines etc.

Not much for small kids so idea for families that like the sound of silence without screaming kids. Does have table tennis and small pc room.

We had an electric hook up for the first time in the tent, this year we take a little more like a toaster.

Small shop selling basics but town is not too far away.

A basic campsite remains unspoiled, very quiet apart from the little stream running along the road.

Reminds me of what camping is supposed to be, no street lights, open skys fresh air and plenty of stars at night.

Will be going back again this year.

 The camping at Heathfield has recently had a face lift and it is a very nice and flat pitch with capacity for about 30 tents. Prices are reasonable and the washing/toilet facilities are very good. There is a large presence of static caravans but the camping is on its own in a separate field. There is a shop on site which sells the basics at reasonable prices. There's no play area but there is a recreational hall.

Incidentally further up the road is Westfield and Topfield where there is more camping, but the facilities aren't as good. The pitches aren't as flat but it is much quieter. There's also a section where you can camp along the river and have an open fire.

The surrounding area has tons to do and we managed to pack in loads.

There are walks all around the area to suit all fitness levels. I particularly like the short walk to the Bridge Inn that's about 1/4 mile away. The 1. 5 mile walk into Pateley Bridge along the Beck then along the River Nidd is lovely and mostly off road. If you manage to find the Sportmans Arms (another pub) it's well worth a 3/4 mile walk to.

Although Pateley Bridge is a small town there are 2 very good butchers, along with 2 small supermarkets, 2 Indian restaurants, 2 fish and chip shops, 2 Grocers, a very good bakers, hardware store, pet store and a deli. There's also a music shop, 2 banks, estate agents, charity shop, and excellent wine merchants where he'll try to match you to a good bottle of wine in your price range, which he has done for us several times. They're all friendly and sell quality produce. There's even a Japanese/Chinese restaurant but I haven't been in and it receives mixed reviews.

There are several places to eat, but I can recommend the Granary cafe. Excellent (proper) cappuccinos and home cooked food. I would particularly recommend the Cheese scone, Wensleydale cheese and onion chutney.

The oldest sweetshop in Britain can also be found here where they sell just about any sweet you can imagine or that has ever been made!

There's an excellent council run swimming pool between the campsite and Pateley Bridge.

In Pateley Bridge there is a great little kids play area right next to the bowling green where you can enjoy a rather excellent ice cream (if not a tad expensive) sold from a van next to the play area.

Further afield is How Stean Gorge where you can explore caves and a gorge! There's Brimham Rocks where you are free to explore some unusual rock formations. Parking is a touch expensive but free for National Trust members. Darley Mill at Dacre Bank is worth a visit. The restaurant is very good and it sells home furnishing, cookware, gifts, sweats chocolate etc over 3 floors of a disused mill which still has a working water wheel. There's a Smokery and Ice Cream parlour on the way to Fewston & Swinsty reservoirs but it's quite pricey although does provide quality produce.

You are able to walk round most of the reservoirs in the region which makes for some beautiful scenery. Also try Coldstone Cut. A working quarry viewing area with a bizarre art installations, that's essentially a small street at the top of a hill!

Can't wait to go back as there's still loads to do: Stump Cross Caverns, walk along river Wharfe at Grassington, take the kids Trout fishing at at Kilnsey Wood Park. Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Deer Park.
