 Stayed for one night while picking up new motorhome.

Got a takeaway from the on site bistro which was excellent.

Arrived in the dark and left next morning so didn't get chance to have a good look round but as usual the facilities on these club sites were very good.

 Stayed here for 2 nights with our hired camper van, was told 2 different prices and paid a different price on arrival.

We went out for the day only to have our pitch given away so we had to move pitch and be told it was our fault.

Staff were very rude think because we were non members we were treated differently

 Lovely quiet site, nice grounds and good restaurant/ takeaway on site which we used a couple of times. Good sized pitches. Good, clean facilities and there is an emergency loo available while the main facilities are being cleaned. Very pleasant and helpful staff. There is small fenced off play area for children at the top end of the site.

Bus stops outside to Harrogate, Ripon, and Knaresborough town. About 40 min walk into knaresborough along paved road. Although a longer hour and half approx walk through Nidd Gorge. Beautiful walk but a couple of steep inclines. Take it nice and easy and its a much more pleasant walk than the road.

The campsite is actually located in Scotton with the Guy Fawkes Arms just over 5 mins walk away, serving excellent food. The only downside to the site is that, unlike some other sites, they have no shop for basic and essential needs such as milk, bread etc (we appreciate during Covid its difficult for some sites to have this available), however, there is no local shops in Scotton so you need to keep on top of your own supplies. It would be ideal if there was a occasional van visit from a nearby supplier with basic supplies. I'm sure this would be welcomed by guests.

Knaresborough is a really lovely market town with lovely river views from the top by the castle. Can highly recommend the Mitre pub next door to the railway station. Excellent food. Mother Shiptons Caves are on the edge of the town and worth a visit.

We will most definitely return to this campsite.

 Booked last thing and managed to get two nights at Knaresborough before going on to Whitby. From the time we entered the site, we were impressed.

The wardens were polite and helpful, the pitches looked immaculate, the campsite looked well maintained, and the facilities, whilst reduced, were spotless.

One of the best CMC sites we have stayed on.

Didn't use the bar on site, but had a takeaway pizza which was gorgeous. 40m walk by road to Knaresborough, or an 80m walk via Nidds Gorge.

Lovely town, vibrant and has good connections to Harrogate - bus every 7 mins. Bus stop outside entrance to York and to Knaresborugh.

Will certainly return when we are heading North.

 The site is in Scotton and around the corner from the Guy Fawkes pub which is highly recommended.

There are some pretty walks along the Nidd Gorge which is 5 minutes walk up the road - from here you can walk to Ripley in one direction or Knaresborough in the other. We did a 9 mile round trip, taking in Knaresborough on the way around which is a pretty town on the river.

The site is of the usual standard although the facilities block was cold which was surprising as CMC sites are normally very warm. Check in was easy, with phone number to call once you’ve chosen your pitch and check in and payment done over the phone rather than queuing up for reception.

Reviewer: Damaca 72 reviews from this member

 Not really in Knaresborough but a half-hour (at least) walk along the pavement of a main road. Or you can take a longer walk along the gorge of the River Nidd, which we did on one occasion but found it dark and rather creepy, so didn't repeat the experience.

The nearby Guy Fawkes pub is very good, pity the site didn't tell us about it in their local info sheets, or we'd have been able to go more than we actually did.

The site is basically a large field divided up into hardstanding pitches but, although in nice countryside, it doesn't have much of a pleasing aspect to recommend it. It was, of course (being a club site) clean and well run.

RHS Harlow Carr is well worth a visit, but we were underwhelmed by Ripley which just seemed to be a tourist trap.

 We’ve just spent 2 nights here, our second visit. As you’d expect from a CMC site it is excellent, everything has been thought of, even a toilet for use when the toilets are being cleaned, great idea. The whole site is well cared for and the toilet block is clean and warm.

We ate at the Wanderer Bistro, which is on site and had a lovely meal, steak and ale pie was the pie of the day and it was delicious, served with chips and a selection of fresh vegetables, there is something for everyone on the menu and also a specials board, we couldn’t manage pudding but the selection looked tempting. We thought the prices were reasonable and it is really useful to have a place like this to go to on site.

There are 3 bus stops outside the site entrance, we caught the bus to Knaresborough, York or Harrogate services also go from these stops. There is a pub which serves food 10-15 minute walk away. Can’t wait to return

Reviewer: Beesue 13 reviews from this member

 This site is newly refurbished, it has a bistro (nearly £10 for a burger!) and everything is very modern and spotless. The staff are very friendly and helpful and everything is just as you would expect for a Club site. However, there are no dividing trees or bushes and so the place is very clinical and the views are. Of other caravans, I'm afraid it wasn't for us, we like somewhere with a bit more character and a lot less soulless.

 Stayed at this site for 3 nights in November and found it be usual caravan club standard with clean facilities. Ideal location to visit Harrogate and York if you have transport. The site is very open and therefore open to the elements. The dog walk is a reasonable size although the walk down to the field rather muddy.

Knaresborough is about 40 minutes walk away along the main road and there are a few shops and pubs in the town. Recommend the Guy Fawkes pub which is about 10 minutes walk in the other direction - very warm and welcoming with excellent food and service.

 Arrived on site at the specified time of 1 Oclock checked in and chose a pitch, the one we found was a large hardstanding but there are smaller ones for smaller outfits and units without awnings. There are some grass pitches in another area which would be great for families and groups with children as these are next to the play area. There is also a small dog walk.

The facilities were clean the showers varied depending on which one you went in, one was very weak, and one was coming away from the wall, pointed towards the shower curtain with force and flooded everywhere. I think the building needs an update and for over £27 per night for two of us it should be really nice.

That said the site is pleasant, about 2 miles from Knaresborough, we walked and it took us 40 mins, caught a bus back but it cost £5. 60 just one way. Caught the train to York from Knaresborough station, the trains run very regularly, only takes half an hour we were advised to buy a 'duo' ticket which entitled one to travel half price only cost just over £11 return.

There is a bar/bistro on site but we didn't use it, we went to a pub called the chequers in a village a about five miles away and had the most excellent carvery. The guy fawkes pub meals in the village (ten mins walk) looked quite nice but we only went in for a drink.

A places worth visiting are Brimham rocks (AMAZING) and Plompton rocks (smaller with a lake and less walking).

All in all we enjoyed our stay but if visiting the area again would probably choose another site we think it's too expensive considering the facilities need an upgrade.
