 Booked for 2 nights. Arrived on the 27th at 8:30pm met Elaine, invited me in for a cup of tea. She showed me round the caravan I was staying in and showed me round the facilities. I had meals cooked there. Was invited into the house to watch the England game. I would like to thank Elaine and her family for the hospitality. If anybody is walking the coast to coast I would recommend having refreshments at elaines.

 Just had a long weekend here, the weather was hot the views fantastic but got chilly in the evenings you are at about 1000 ft altitude. Peace and quiet simple camping.

We were offered tea or coffee and cake on arrival and told we were the only people booked in so could camp anywhere in the field of about 12 acres. The grass was long which made it nice and soft but the field did slope, the area is the Dales so what do you expect. There is only one water tap for the whole site which is located just by the field entrance. The whole family very warm and welcoming and would happily chat all day and tell you about the lambs and other farm animals-dogs 2 Jack Russellís, Collies, Cats and cows.

The facilities could be better as mentioned two toilets, one shower and one washing up sink-minus the plug. On our visit there was no hot water for washing up that was the only downer.

There are plenty of walks around and the coast to coast is just at the end of the field. At the end of the road there is an old ruined lead smelting mill. Richmond is about 8 miles away for shops etc, Lidl is the main supermarket. Reeth has pubs which is about 3 miles away.

 A small campground on a working farm deep in the Yorkshire Dales. Stunning views, but feels remote and exposed to bad weather. Facilities are basic, but kept in good order. Slightly sloping pitches generally, but we slept OK. The kids enjoyed seeing 'life on the farm': lambs being born, and hay being baled. Lots of space for children to run around in, and a very family-friendly feel overall. The campsite owners are very friendly and helpful. Would happily return: it's CAMPING!

 Just returned from this site. Mixed reviews.

Plus, Out in the sticks so peace and lovely views. Although can get windy for a tent. Small site on working farm. Very friendly owners. Saw lambs being born during our visit, and children able to see them with the farmer. Elaine has cakes etc for sale at the farmhouse. Reasonably priced.

Negatives, only 2 toilets, 1 shower, 1 washing up sink, housed in converted out buildings. These were not always clean, as owners are busy with farm, and everyone taking dirt in on their feet. Maybe a mop and bucket would help. We carried hot water back to tent, And a very unhygienic towel in each toilet for hand drying. Now surely paper towels are better if no electric hand dryer available. We wouldn't use a towel that the rest of the campsite had used.

Only a trampoline for children to play on, but space to run around.

Would return if washing/ toilet facilities were improved

 A lovely site up above Swaledale, it's an ideal place from which to explore this beautiful area. Quiet and secluded with only naughty lambs to bother you. It's a working farm so don't expect instant service. Please close the gate ( I forgot. Tsk tsk. )

 Hi just came back from nun cote farm its a working farm you do have the cockerels in the morning to wake you up but still quiet what a beautiful little camp site beautiful views there are some lovely walks, if you want peace and quiet this is the place to go, this was our first time here we got there on the 2nd bank holiday Monday in may so there wasn't a lot of people here but everyone was very friendly we were made to feel welcome by the owners and other campers who offered to help us with our tent on the Wednesday when the wind and rain came, there are two toilets one with a shower the other has a sink very clean the field was flat enough for our tent no problem and is large enough if you have children to run around till there harts are content we had the farm cat visiting us she is so gentle and friendly. About a 20 minute ride away you have Richmond or leyburn which are lovely to walk around with plenty of shops and cafes. We loved the campsite and will be back soon I would recommend this campsite to all as I could not fault it

 Good old Yorkshire hospitality at it's best!

Just got back from 3 relaxing days/nights at this Campsite over the Easter weekend.

We were met by owner Elaine, she gave us a choice of pitches, showed us around the facilities and said pop up to the farm once setup. We chose the pitch that was on its own as we had two boisterous toddlers with us (and it also meant our lounge area was facing the stunning views).

Once set up we went up to the farmhouse to pay the great price of £15 per night and were offered fresh scones and tea.

The day we arrived it was raining and some of the other campers struggled to get on site. But everyone on the farm mucked in with a Quad and Tractor to get folk onto their pitches.

The next few days on site it was glorious sunshine and you could see for miles.

Easter Sunday, Elaine was up bright and early hiding Easter chocolate outside the farmhouse and around the large field we were camping in. Then at 11. 30 all work stopped on the farm and her children (mostly grown up)and workers gathered by the farmhouse. On the word GO, there was a stampede of welly flopping folk racing around the field hunting for eggs and sweets. The other campers also joined in racing around the field.

The best part was Elaine had kept a small section of wall by for our two small children they absolutely loved it, the big smiles on their faces were amazing.

Elaine also took time out from lambing to bring over a newborn lamb to our caravan for the children to meet. We were also greeted at our door by the farm cat and dogs a several occasions.

The Farmer himself was often seen going through the field on his quad to tend to his sheep. But, he always smiled and waved at the children.

This is a great little campsite. It has two toilets and a shower.

There is no waste water disposal point, you are asked to carefully pour it down the toilet.

This is a Working Farm, you will hear farm animals and farm machinery, but no where near enough to be annoying.

We had a very enjoyable and relaxed long weekend. We will definitely be using this site again. The bonus is we only live less than 20 minutes away

 We had 2 night here and loved it, Elaine made us feel very welcome with a cream tea on arrival. The views fantastic, you could see for miles. This is a working farm they all worked long days with the sheep. The facilities were nice and clean, we had some lovely walks, the first walk was to Reeth and our second day walked into Richmond. Both walls were along the coast to coast route. TV reception was excellent. Will definitely go back one day

 My wife and I, our dog and 3 year old girl stayed here on the Tour de France weekend. Unlike other campsites, Elaine kept her prices the same for this weekend. It cost us £24 for 2 nights. We received a very warm welcome from the owner on arrival, she remembered my name even though it was a year ago since we last went. The site was a lot busier than normal but not overcrowded. The facilities coped as Elaine has had an extra toilet put in. The atmosphere here was very family friendly, on Saturday evening, The owner's husband took all the children on a tractor ride around the campsite/farm. Also later on Saturday, a hog roast was laid on for all the campers. Everyone who stayed here had an excellent time and most will be returning. What makes this site special is Elaine makes sure it's never overcrowded, it is a peaceful site with amazing views of the Dales. There are supermarkets nearby in Richmond (Co-op) or Catterick Garrison (Tescos), and local shops in Reeth. We can recommend the Bridge Inn at Grinton and the Black Bull in Reeth for food.

 Last visited here in 2010 and nothing has changed thankfully. On arrival we had the usual warm welcome by Elaine. After we pitched the tents we were treated to a cup of tea and homemade biscuits (delicious). Over the weekend there where 3 other tents, Elaine makes sure it doesn't get too busy. For us that is the attraction of the site, it makes it safe for our 2 year old girl and border collie who likes to chase things. It makes it very peaceful as well.

While we stayed there the toilet was always clean and the shower was hot and free. The views from the site are spectacular as the farm is on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

The nearest supermarket is in Richmond with local stores(for basics) in Reeth. We can recommend the Bridge Inn in Grinton for food and Elaine also runs a tea shop in her conservatory and we can recommend the homemade apple pie (as well as the site).
