 Spacious grass pitch in lower area of the site with stunning view of surrounding countryside. Level and some sloping pitches.

Charming friendly owner Richard greeted us on arrival and gave us a tour of the site and facilities.

Facilities situated in shed like buildings, rustic but exceptionally clean, handwash and hand gel generously supplied as well as antibac spray, washing up liquid, bleach, air fresheners. Shower hot and a proper hairdryer in the ladies washroom.

15 min walk through fields into Leyburn. Leyburn is a lovely town with many local shops, pubs etc.

Enjoyed the “ shawl walk” - level walking and nice views. Lovely walk down to the river where we saw so much birdlife.

It appears many of the people using the site visit it frequently and we can see why.

Richard appears to know everyone by name and is super accommodating. Will definitely visit again.

 What a site absolutely stunning well kept spotless clean.

The owner cannot do enough for you, he’s full of local information- walks places to eat etc.

Brilliant week.

 Quiet little site in a really nice location

The pub is excellent for food and drinks, very polite staff

Very close to the falls.

I would advise booking a table in the pub because it’s gets busy.

Will definitely be going back hopefully in the summer months.

 Great site, Richard took the time to show us around the facilities and was very friendly.

The shower was hot and very powerful, not what you normally get.

1 mile walk into town so very convenient,

Definitely be back again.

 What a fabulous find, the views from our pitch were incredible. We enjoyed it so much we have booked again for September. Richard the owner was very helpful.

It was so peaceful and relaxing. Not able to score the facilities as due to COVID Richard has decided not to open them the rest of this season but they looked good from the outside.

 We found Craken House extremely clean and tidy.

The owner, Richard, was very friendly and helpful.

It was so peaceful and in a beautiful setting.

Leyburn was in easy walking distance and we look forward to a return visit.

Reviewer: Andyca 1 review from this member

 This site is brilliant. It was my 5 year old daughter’s first camping trip and that’s why we only stayed one night.

Richard was helpful throughout the booking (it was last minute) and the stay, he honestly made you feel that nothing was too much trouble.

The site is lovely with excellent views and facilities.

 One of the best sites we have stayed on. It is positively idyllic and Richard the owner was lovely. He made us welcome and was very helpful and friendly.

The area is beautiful and there is so much to see and do, we visit at least twice a year and we will certainly stay at Cracken House Farm again.

We highly recommend it, it was brilliant!
