 Can't fault this site, brilliant location, perfect hosts,

Facilities when open are spotlessly clean,

Would recommend to anyone,

If you can keep your children entertained yourselves then it's good for families although there isn't a playground

One word to capture my experience.

My arrival at the campsite could not have been more pleasant, Mark gave up his time as he was attending to other tasks and offered the most idealistic pitch, offering us an EHU point which I had not asked for but had become available. NOW! Not having a hook-up cable I thought that was that but Amanda popped over to greet us and offered a cable for our stay. Later that evening Samantha came for a welcome chat and cemented the friendship between both parties.

The site is so quiet and with the volume of fellow campers our stay was so relaxing.

Covid via the government have tried to curb travel, closing of facilities etc but with excellent campsite management they made our stay safe and offered guidance to maximise the use of the campsite facilities at this time.

So humbled by their support, site location and quiet break we have booked for the following weekend.

Sorry no negative’s. Only a well earned Positive.

Oh! My 0 score for children friendliness was only due to witnessing children playing with their parents etc and none were observed to be upset, board or being disruptive but I wasn’t there to focus on the youngsters as my son is 32. And not my place to rate a score at this time.

 Just got back from a fantastic weekend away at Cow Close caravan site, lovely clean site and plenty of room on all the pitches.

The weather was kind to us so we got some great walking done from site. Spoiled for choices really.

We booked none electric due to none available but day before we arrived I got a phone call saying they had one available now and would I like it, they never charged extra on arrival, what a lovely gesture on their part. Many thanks.

Short walk into Leyburn to the pub if you fancy it and Indian takeaway.

All in all a very nice site and would recommended to anyone. Terry.

 Easy to find, cheerful and helpful welcome, directed to allocated h/s pitch.

Toilets and showers all very clean, one block for showers and the other for toilets, system worked well.

Lovely views, easy walk into Leyburn and down to Harmby falls etc.

One negative for me, no easy to use motorhome dump point.

Given low child rating as no facilities for them.

 Peaceful, relaxing, fairly spacious, small. Male and female toilet blocks, showers, clean and adequate for size of site, 2 pot wash areas, toilet waste and grey waste areas.

Small information hut, also used for self service arrival onto site. No shop on site but does sell calor gas. Shops, pubs, cafes in Leyburn. Lovely views, easy walk into Leyburn.

Possibly one of the nicest sites we’ve stayed on.

 This was our first camping trip since lockdown so we weren’t too sure what to expect but we were very impressed when we arrived how friendly and well organised they were.

The campsite was nice and quiet plus very clean. Lovely dog walks but we didn’t walk to Leybourne, that is why I have only given 9 out of 10 for location but the views were beautiful and we couldn’t have asked for more.

We also really enjoyed the fish and chips from the mobile van that visits the site on Thursday teatimes 😁

Would definitely recommend this site and hopefully we may return again if we are visiting Yorkshire again as it was ideally located to visit lots of lovely places, just changed my score to 10 😁😁😁

Thank you for a brilliant few days away.

Leyburn is only short drive plenty car parking.

About 15 min walk over the fields plenty to do around and about

Suzanne & Amanda very pleasant people always on hand to help.

Plenty places to visit from here we will be back love the location.

Needs a small play area for children.

Reviewer: H15jys 1 review from this member

 Beautiful site in the heart of the Dales. Pitches are well spaced and all have great views. Shower and toilet facilities kept sparkling clean and COVID compliant. The team at Cow Close are really friendly and helpful.

Easy walk into the market town of Leyburn which has a good range of shops. Excellent base for keen walkers. Second visit for us,

Will definitely stay again.
