Had a serviced pitch which was nice and even had some sheep visitors. A little walk to the main reception and shower blocks. Used the smaller block (couple of showers) as was quieter.

Site is not far from home and its nice to just to drive a little distance but still think your away from it all.

The kids liked the playground and had a go at the activities which were on offer during the week. This was one of the main reason to visit again to keep them entertained and they really enjoyed them. They did bushcraft, climbing wall, abseil/zip line got really wet which was all part of the fun. Would definitely do these again.

A friendly and clean site which we would go to again.

Site in a lovely position by a stream in the woods, less than a mile from Osmotherley village with pubs and a shop. It was very busy with extremely noisy children, but this was in the middle of school summer holidays. There were plenty of activities for kids, though they were expensive.

The nearby youth hostel does meals and takeaway food and there are footpaths through the woods to Cod Beck reservoir.

The high season price was indeed high and did not include WiFi. This cost an extra £3 for 1 day (on one machine only) and was very slow. There was no mobile phone signal.

I found the wardens unhelpful - they allocated a sloping pitch and I had to persuade them to give us another place, though two better pitches were free. They also said they had no idea about the signed road closure beyond the campsite, or whether it was open to bicycles, and didn't offer to find out. We only stayed 2 nights (less than intended) because of the noise of the out-of-control children on site.

Thank you to the review from October 2017 which entirely echoes our views on this site. The location is absolutely superb with fantastic walking much appreciated by our two dogs ( and us!); Osmotherley is a beautiful village and you are spoilt for choice on where to eat from the 3 pubs.

As to the site. The pitches are tiny and unkempt with a bit of grass before you reach the next one. So what happens when you get awnings up etc. Well you might as well sit with your neighbours and compare notes! It just supports the opinion that the site only concentrates on cramming everyone in & is over commercialised. Even if you ask for the 'quiet area' ( silly us we thought that would be akin to an adults only ) you get pitched on a small area in amongst a lot of unattractive statics. There is then a party till gone midnight in one of these and kids racing around playing tennis and on bikes. Also the whole site has a very high % of seasonal caravans in place.

The shower block was clean & adequate but how the site had managed to acquire a 5 flag award last year with dust covered plastic flower hanging basket arrangements who knows?!

The staff who booked us in were friendly but on another occasion in the expensive shop I asked about 'dog poo bags' ( had genuinely forgotten to put some more on board ) the reply was that most serious dog owners have a supply in their pockets!

Sadly I guess that this site is just taking advantage of customers who want to stay in that particular area and who then will obviously 'pay'. It needs a major redesign for layout of pitches and parking. Ironically we'd had our eyes on the place for quite some time. Verdict major disappointment.

On a positive note the weather was nice!

This is not a five star site in my view. Site is cluttered and pitches are very small. Cars need to be abandoned at an angle as there is no designated are to park. Toilet blocks were excellent however and very clean. The park is expensive and you do get the feel that this is all about making money - lets just pack them in. Pitches themselves as well as being tiny are messy and waterlogged at this time of year. The entry route to the park was very narrow but okay if you don't meet anything coming the other way. The area around the park was stunning with fantastic walks for the dogs and a vibrant small village. I would recommend the pub food. In essence really disappointed in the park given its high rating. Wouldn't personally stay here again but would give it three stars at a push.

Having recently stayed at this camp with my family for the first time, I found the whole site to be very clean, two spotless toilet/shower blocks. With the park having play areas, my children had some where to play.

Only bad point for me was no showers near touring area. Although the ones on the park where close enough. Highly recommended will be back.

Just returned home from this little gem of a place and as usual was not disappointed, the place is spotless toilets, grassed areas, play areas & pitches, everything about the place is quality. First visit was in a tent with the kids most recent in the motorhome with just the wife and dogs. If you want peace and quiet then this is the place to be. 15 minute walk into Osmotherley itself with a couple of pubs a chippy & shop or a walk up through the woods to cod beck reservoir you cant fault it, but the best thing for me is limited phone signal & 4G so you actually end up talking and interacting without the need for outside distractions. Wi-Fi is available at a small charge if ya desperate but I cant praise the site & staff enough and will be returning again & again. It really is a hidden gem.

Hey, guys out there who are thinking of coming to this campsite. Definitely do! This campsite is one of the best we've ever visited. I went with my mum Linda, my dad Shaun, my brother James and my dog Spark, who is a chocolate Labrador! We have been once so far but will definitely be returning! There are good supermarkets nearby and good places to walk your doggies . The on-site shop is well stocked with all the essentials however there are other shops nearby! The only problem is the road leading up to the park is very very narrow but isn't too bad! We will definitely be returning! Thank you Vote Ghyll for letting us have the best holiday of our life!

Have been looking for a local site that I would return too on a regular basis and have now found it. This site is very visitor friendly and the site is immaculate both in the amenities and the grounds. Took our 4 yr old grandson and hardly saw him. If he wasn't chasing the abundant rabbits he was in the play park or playing in the stream(mostly ankle deep) with his net. The site is located in a little valley and the scenery is lovely. A short trip from the park is cod beck reservoir which seems popular with walkers and dog walks. Stayed for five days and left on the Saturday and realised why you should book in advance. By Friday night there was not a pitch left either for vans or tents. Would highly recommend this site and look forward to a return trip. Thankyou cote ghyll for a lovely stay and enjoyable trip.

Reviewer: Lindy1971 1 review from this member

Village approaching site very nice, chip shop (great fish and chips), general stores and a few pubs and coffee shop. Very tight ok if nothing's coming in the opposite direction. The area is great for dog walks and there is a lovely reservoir with picnic tables and benches to enjoy the scenery. Caravan site clean. Well kept play areas and little stream, great for children but just be careful with little ones as the promoted nature trail has parts with barbed wire. We found the little shop well stocked but expensive and if dogs aren't permitted there should be a sign on shop/reception door. Showers and toilets I can't fault, very clean. My only few gripes would be the showers are on a 10 second push button which is a pain, also my husband said the men's showers has a sign asking user to mop floors when finished we've not encountered this before. They do have a 10 o'clock quiet rule although this is not enforced or on our first night we wouldn't of been lying awake till well after 11 waiting for the people in the next caravan deciding it was time to stop drinking and having rather loud conversations to go to bed. This could be a great site with a few tweeks here and there. Don't think we will be back.

Really lovely site and definitely one we’ll return to.

This was our first time out in our new van and first time caravanners. We have camped for years so the experience was not totally new to us.

We travelled to the site from the north down the A19 and through the village of Osmotherley – quite a tight fit for vans especially a novice tower as parked cars take up one of the lanes so care needed. Approach to the site is a single lane track so hope there are no vans coming out at the same time. We were greeted by a very friendly lady on arrival who booked us in and explained the facilities and directions to pitch. I had hoped someone from the site may have been able to help me on to the pitch as newbie but unfortunately when I arrived there was no one on hand so had to go solo. Thankfully the pitch was a good size and with no one on the pitch in front I had plenty of room to manoeuvre. It was a gravel pitch and a really nice spot with lovely daffodils around it. There was one slightly annoying bush making it difficult to get down the side of the van. Pitch was also close to kids playground which was great for us. The ground next to our pitch was very soggy and muddy but expected this time of year. Facilities were very clean on arrival and apart from muddy floors stayed in good nick. Daughter #1 loved the playground and made some new friends. Everyone on the site seemed very friendly and the site was pretty quiet by darkness. There is a stream running through the site so one to remember with small kids.

We didn’t get the chance to explore much outside of the site as being a new van we were getting ourselves set up and finding our feet – and issues with the van which I obsessed over for most of the Saturday! But neighbours did tell us about lovely walks suitable for young kids. We did get in to the village for lunch on the Saturday and went to the Queen Catherine. Nice food and lovely pint of Wainwrights.

The sun made a decent appearance midday Sunday and we stayed for a couple of extra hours. Daughter #1 had a great time flying around the quieter site on her scooter in the sunshine following a very muddy morning with her new friends.

All in all a great site and has pretty much everything I think we want out of a site - large pitch, good facilities, playpark, families, nice countryside and walking distance to a good pub.
