 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.

 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.

 Very tight single track downhill access road with blind bends. If you're a nervous tower you won't like this! I assumed, wrongly it transpired, that there would be a separate exit road but no such luck. It's a case of put your foot down and hope you don't meet someone coming the other way on the uphill lane when you go out!

As this site is not owned by the Caravan Club you can see why no money seems to have been spent on it for some time. Toilets are old fashioned, hairdryers have only one speed and heat setting, the disabled shower room is like a sauna if you use it just after someone else as the extractor fan is a waste of time.

The whole floor quickly floods if you are in the shower for any length of time and the rubber 'mops' are not much use either. The bottom part of the site is the best, the top half is ok but is not really Club standard in my opinion. The top pitches have no real size definition to them as they have no real edging and the gravel continues into the grass making it look a little untidy.

The wardens were very friendly and helpful it's just the facilities which need the money spent on them.

 Actually arrived a few minutes early. Oh big mistake such a fuss was made ( maybe a waiting area in place at the top of the hill )

The showers are rather dated, shower curtains stick to you, but are very clean

The site is kept clean

 Site was nearly full, but organised. We had a small choice of pitches from those remaining, but were happy with what we chose.

Pitches were well spaced with nice outlooks to trees. Staff friendly, and we appreciated the colourful floral display outside the site office.

Wandering ducks, moorhens and a pea-cock made regular visits, and at night we heard an owl hooting.

The wet facilities were spotless, if a little dated. Despite site being full I never queued.

Only one toilet block, which was completely closed for cleaning from 10:30am to 11:45am, last checkout at 12:00pm. Timing could have been better from my point of view.
