 We have been regulars at River Laver for many years and were so lucky to get a weekend out in our tourer at River Laver before the virus closed the park.

We always have a great time enjoying the tranquillity of the park, yet with great walks and the beautiful city of Ripon a short walk away.

We often bring the grandchildren too, who love the adventure playground at Fountains Abbey and Mario’s Italian restaurant in town.

On another note I was so sad to read the recent negative feed back from another customer. Everyone is entitled to an opinion but I feel theirs are totally unfounded!- our twin axle caravan and 4x4 have no problem fitting on the pitch.

Hope everyone keeps safe and well and it’s not too long before we can all enjoy our beautiful countryside.

We’ll be back!

 A truly immaculate caravan park which is maintained to the highest quality and standards on the outskirts of Ripon. Family run, this is a park which is looked after fantastically well. However, whilst the staff were very professional they did not go above and beyond what could be expected in my view, which is a shame.

The park is laid out mainly for static caravans with only 10 touring pitches available on a small strip of land that was clearly not wide enough to put statics.

The 8 pitches (two further elsewhere on the park) were very, very close together and despite there being a postage stamp area attached to the pitch our Kia Sorento would not fit on it.

Little to do for kids as there is no play area and bicycles are banned anywhere on site.

What I did find slightly disconcerting was the significant number of CCTV cameras placed on site, more than I would expect to see in your average prison. I hope that there is a very effective privacy policy that is being independently verified otherwise there is little that cant be tracked on site.

All in all a clean site with washrooms etc which are some of the best I have ever seen.

We wont be coming back though as the pitches are just far too close together.

 Absolute gem! Immaculate caravan site!

The toilet/shower block is spotless!

The location is perfect for walking to Fountains Abbey and also in to Ripon.

 First class site ideally situated for all Ripon has to offer

Immaculate facilities and helpful friendly owners and warden

Only downside having to pay for 4 nights on a bank holiday when only stopping for 3

Reviewer: Hagland 4 reviews from this member

 Loved the site only 8 pitches for tourers. Spotless amenities and 20 min walk into Ripon.

Very quiet site, the staff are fantastic. Fountains abbey close by. Most of the park is statics and they are expanding by adding another 40.

Not a great deal for children to do but ok if you are using it as a base. No bike riding on the site which I think is reasonable as I said it is mainly statics.

Would go again.

 Located just outside the town of Ripon, it is beside a busy road, but is still quiet. Mostly static vans, the pitches for tourers are all hard standing. Facilities are very good, and the warden/owners welcoming.

Its a pleasant 20 minute walk into town where you can get a bus to Harrogate or elsewhere.

The highlight for us was walking from the site to Studley Royal estate, run by National Trust. The walk is easy going, all on paths isolated from roads.

The park has stunning water gardens and the Fountains Abbey is an amazing place to see.

Reviewer: CFB128 2 reviews from this member

 Immaculately kept site with just 10 touring pitches.

Peaceful with the most amazing toilet and shower block. 20 mins walk into Ripon town and 40mins the opposite direction to Studley Royal. Fully serviced, hard standing pitches.

Will definitely return.

Reviewer: Billy the Kid 7 reviews from this member

 The site is located on the main road about 1/2 mile from Ripon, primarily a static site, it caters for approx. 10 tourers. The owners were very helpful and friendly.

Shower and toilet block is immaculate. Ripon is a pleasant 1/2 hour walk away, Studley Royal and Fountains Abbey are also within walking distance via a public footpath opposite the site.

WiFi is available for approx £1. 80 a day, dogs are allowed on a lead.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely return.

 We chose River Laver for its proximity to Fountains Abbey and Ripon. We were welcomed warmly and felt very much at home throughout our stay.

There are 8 touring pitches at the entrance to the main Static Site, as well as a rally field.

The showers and toilets are modern and immaculately clean There is a small shop with essential items.

As first-time visitors to Ripon, we were impressed with the wide range of Pubs and Eateries in the town, many of which are dog-friendly. Just a mention that Booth's Supermarket is worth a visit - and they will refund your pay and display parking if you spend £5. Other shops apparently also honour this scheme, but notably not Sainsbury's.

One gripe about Ripon is that there is no retailer for Hardware/DIY - my requirement for hozelock fittings and some TV satellite connectors would have meant a trip to Harrogate.

Fountains Abbey is within walking distance, so about 4 to 5 miles will get you there and back with a good tour round the grounds and Studleigh Royal.

We have added this site to our Annual Visit list, outstanding value and quality that speaks for itself.

Reviewer: Yummybunny 4 reviews from this member

 We had a really relaxing 5 days here in October and enjoyed every minute. Its so clean, tidy and quiet. The facilities are spotless and the owners are really helpful.

Ripon is a lovely little town and we will certainly be booking again for another break next year. We have a small dog and there are plenty of places to walk nearby.

The only reason we didn't give a 10 rating for each category is the shop only stocks the very basics, you have to pay for the wi-fi and its not site for Children.
