 This is a nice site set in an old disused quarry.

Itís well maintained with good facilities.

The walk into Leyburn is 20-30 minutes, and itís a nice town. Hswee and Bedsle are a little furry her, by car.

Forbidden Corner is worth a visit too.

 We booked this last minute and had a few worries looking at previous reviews!

We were a late arrival so allocated a pitch, the pitch was plenty big enough for us and surprisingly we would of probably picked it anyway.

The Tv signal is still hit and miss. This is not the campsites fault, the transmitter bunt down but there are dvds to borrow if you need to watch something.

We visited the waterfall and Leyburn, a nice steady walk but not overly far (20mins). Plenty of shops, pubs and cafes.

We booked a Sunday lunch at the Golden Lion (book as we watched over 20 familyís turned away) meal excellent size and well cooked.

I am so pleased we went and kept an open mind as we have had a fantastic weekend.

We did hear the peacock, but only on one night and tbh no worse than home with foxes/cockerels/cats fighting and it added to the ambience of the site.

Facilities clean plenty of water and bins and we did not see any rubbish or dog Poo even in the dog walk area.

Excellently run site.

 Would not recommend this site for the following reasons:

The site was too jammed in and everyone on top of each other, no views whatsoever.

The resident peacock Made a loud noise all night! I live on a farm, but still found this extremely annoying.

Lastly in the evening we could not sit outside because of a foul smell, which seemed to come from the toilet block!

Very disappointed as this is a Caravan and Motorhome approved site.

 A bit different to the normal we come to expect from CAMC. For sure pitches are generally a bit smaller and there are a lot of non awning pitches. We found that the non awning were in some of the sunnier spots and often hardly smaller than awning pitches.

We choose the bottom level which had plenty of sun through the trees for most of the day. The higher levels do seem roomier though.

Facilities are fine, ancient but always clean. Did find the hit water a but tepid in the morning and that's with only a third of showers in use due to Covid.

Friday is market day in Leyburn, just a couple of stalls, about a 25-20 minutes gentle walk from the campsite. On route you pass a chocolate shop where you can watch handmade chocolates bring made and if course fill your bags with treats. (There is a market in Northallerton on a Thursday which was more worthwhile with lots of stalls).

There is a fenced fog field at the top of the road into the site. Great for larger dogs to run free but smaller dogs (Shih Tzu / Terriers) can just walk under the gate so not good for anything much smaller than a Cookerpoo I would guess.

Overall we found the site to be very quiet and peaceful.

 A nice site, but we thought that the layout, with many trees and steep banks and inclines made every pitch rather too dark and shady.

A good pedestrian-only walking exit from the site and down a few hundred yards to the local pub, bus stop and pavement walk 1 - 1 1/2 miles into Leyburn.

Middleham castle nearby is well worth a visit, as are Aysgarth Falls. You need to drive to the latter.

The access road to the site is steep and narrow, but short. They have timed entry and exit hours so in theory you shouldn't meet anyone coming the opposite way.

 Lovely site set in a disused quarry.

Facilities excellent.

Great pub a few minutes walk, and the town of Leyburn is about one mile. Nice town with a good range of shops, pubs and cafes.

Excellent walking in the area.

Good access to many area in the Dales.

 I really do not know why people say such negative stuff about this site. Itís clean and friendly. The toilets and showers are in a older style building but kept very clean.

The lane down to the site has passing places and you should not drive fast as there are people walking on it. If you canít handle the odd turn and gentle hill then you should not be touring.

The staff are great and the site is nicely spaced out and not in a regimental way but sections through trees. Lovely park.

We come here every year.

 Access to the site was no problem with 7. 3m caravan and kia Sorento.

Very friendly welcome, pitches are a variety of sizes and our caravan just about fit on the pitch we chose. A couple came in a 8+m motorhome and had to try a few pitches before they found one big enough.

We liked the site very much and will certainly return. Toilets were fine, spotlessly clean. , Leyburn 5 mins drive and a pub 10 min walk.

Harmby Waterfall 2 mins from the pub and worth a visit.

We ate at the Old Horn Inn, freshly cooked food at vert reasonable prices.

Looking forward to our next visit to the site.

TV reception was good as was 4G, CAMH Club wifi only at reception.

 Beautiful site; the staff are very helpful and friendly; many local attractions with Leyburn a great place to visit and stock up on supplies.

I would recommend this site; it is very peaceful and amenities as expected are all on hand. Site has a local pub nearby which is well worth a visit.

Reviewer: Mondeocort 40 reviews from this member

 Contrary to previous reviews, we found access to and from the site trouble free. We were in a motorhome and could see why some people towing may lack confidence but if you visit the countryside often then these narrow roads should be expected, if you are not confident, stop on a site at a motorway junction instead. We also found the facilities clean and well maintained.

The wardens were extremely friendly. Our pitch was on a balcony style area overlooking the lower tier of the park and the view, peace and quiet was much appreciated as even though the site was busy, it was indeed tranquil.

I thought some of the pitches would probably benefit from a little tlc but to be honest, think harsh gravel edges of hardstanding pitches would be detrimental to the feel of the site which I thought fitted in with it's surroundings beautifully.

The town of Leyburn is very accessible from the site and plenty of shops, eateries available. The only issue we had was that the motorhome waste water drain wasn't in the ideal place to drain our tank being on a slight incline and we thought our tank was empty but in driving away realised it wasn't so we spilt some waste water on the way out. We do not normally advocate emptying waste in the wrong place but it was just soapy water on this occasion and we will ensure all taps are closed next time we travel.

We will visit again without hesitation.
