 8 secs to have a shower or try to shower one handed holding button in. Not good, very poor

We understand loud music but we were playing the Radio on my phone there is no volume of a base

But yet a warden seemed to be walking very near people to listen and that is when can we were told to turn it off

There is a balance not sure this is necessary

 Excellent campsite in the small village of “Apptrick” in Wharfedale.

Good facilities.

Good walks from site. 2 pubs within walking distance.

Weather terrible, but you can’t have it all.

 Lovely location on the river which provides great scenery and easy walking.

The approach road is rather narrow and I feel larger units may struggle (hence a score of 8 rather than higher), though it was fine for us in our small motorhome.

Facilities spotless and the morning bakery and shop very much appreciated. Staff really helpful and friendly.

Craven Arms pub a five minute walk up the road is a decent pub with great views if you have the weather to sit outside, though we didn't sample the food.

Plenty to see and do in the area but do watch the width and steepness of some of the roads if towing.

 Had a glorious 5 nights camping in this great campsite. Amazing views and located by the river the kids loved every second. Managed to get one of the fire regulated fire pits ensured enough marshmallows were eaten to recharge everyone.

Facilities were clean and didn’t have to queue often even with the site quite full. Pot wash is well thought out and the abundant toilets in the river field made it easy through the night with little ones.

We never used the shop or on site bakery but saw the queues for coffee in a morning so imagine they’re good. Straight down the river is an easy walk for >6 years and furry friends to the red lion where we had lunch over looking the stream, great food and some good beers. Craven arms the other way is also recommended.

With the stream and all the toys (river field is a big football, rounders pitch also) we never ventured further or felt the need.

Great for the family but not so much young couples - we loved it.

 Great location - adjacent to the Dales Way trail.

Very much appreciated the discount for backpackers, making it great value for money.

A friendly welcome and great facilities ensured an enjoyable stay.

 We stayed here for two nights in our campervan. The location is superb but that’s about it!

Massively over priced. £95 for two nights!

Toilets and showers were filthy. The ‘shop’ is not worth bothering with.

The pitches are crammed in by the owners.

We won’t be returning due to the prices which is pure greed in our opinion

 This was our second visit time this site. Beautiful location, near a river which is great for paddling & stone fabulous walks to Burnsal.

The site offers fire pits for hire which is a nice touch & good for marshmallows with the kids. Lovely coffee /cakes on offer at the barn & lovely little shop with essentials available.

We would return without doubt.

Reviewer: VANCANWAK 2 reviews from this member

 Superb location Very busy but to be expected at the weekend during August.

Good facilities including on site airstream coffee shop. Nice pastries.

Only downside was the lack of consideration for others by some campers who brought a very young baby who cried loudly to be fed quite early - around 6am each day. It’s a tent and doesn’t have soundproofing!

Lovely walks, good pubs serving good food.

 Stopped at this site for 1 night when walking the Dales Way with my dog.

It's handily located right off the path and an easy afternoon's walk from the start in Ilkley.

The Craven Arms is conveniently just up the lane, which was very nice and served good ale and food.

The facilities on site were fine with hot showers and kept reasonably clean.

If I walk the Dales Way again, I'd use this site for the location.

 The owners here are obviously trying to attract “trendy” campers, with fire pits to hire and an on-site bakery. Best feature is the location - we walked both ways along the river.

We were initially offered a pitch under a tree; our rising roof would probably have touched the branches! But as there were plenty of other pitches available we said NO and were then given a pitch in open area; much better. Some of the staff do not appear to understand camping!

Facilities blocks look good, but again, they are trying too hard. Wash up sinks are outside - why? Taps are push button, but cold tap goes on and on, but the hot tap only last a few seconds. They are trying to save (hot) water, but in effect you waste cold water to get a usable temperature!

Toilet blocks include the almost standard lights with sensors, that turn off too soon while you are in the loo or shower cubicle. The toilet cubicles are standard size, but they have then added huge toilet roll dispensers and I could barely get past this and the door into the cubicle; and I’m not that large (really). All quite disappointing.

We can imagine that it gets very busy in high season and spacing between units would be ignored to get more money.

Nice location, could be brilliant but didn't really work for us.
