This is a great site and within walking distance of Leyburn. Toilet block is first class and the showers have HOT water, unlike some other sites. Great base if you want some " hilly " road biking.

Plenty of walking opportunities but surprisingly Leyburn doesn't have a tourist info centre. Just some leaflets in the Co-op. Good walk over Leyburn Shawl to Wensley and good food at the 3 Horseshoes but couldn't recommend the Sunday roast.

Only negative was the noise from the army shooting range over Grinton moor. This at times continued on to after 11pm. Wouldn't stop us going back though.

We arrived to a warm welcome by the owners,

The site and facilities are immaculate.

One mile walk into the town of Leyburn with shops, pubs and restaurants.

Good walks straight from the site.

Certainly will visit again.

Stopped at Cow Close for a weekend break. Weather was glorious and views from site are spectacular!

Facilities very clean and tidy and never seemed over run even though the sight was quite busy.

Owners very friendly.

Very dog friendly site.

Leyburn is 10mins car drive away and has everything you need/want.

Will definitely be back in the new year.

We stopped here one night in April on a whistlestop trip to Yorkshire. I phoned to book a few nights before which was an easy process. The site is located about a mile north of Leyburn which is a beautiful small town with several shops and pubs though once we pitched up we cooked in the van and stayed on site that evening.

There's lovely distant views of hills and the site is quite spacious with units set around the perimeter of the field. I'm guessing they put tents in the middle of the field during busier times though it was mostly vans and caravans when we stayed.

The owner came over for a quick chat when we arrived and was very friendly. The facilities were very clean and tidy too.

It's very well situated in a lovely scenic area. I'm sure a walk to Leyburn would only take 20 minutes or so and is well worth checking out but Leyburn itself is a good base for the surrounding areas. Lots to see and do such as Castle Bolton, Black Sheep brewery, endless country walks etc.

Would definitely visit again and recommend the site.

Stayed for one night. Quiet site in a great location. Short walk to Leyburn, walking and cycling on the doorstep.

Hosts welcoming and friendly, spotless facilities.

We have already booked to go back again.

Spent a full week at Cow Close FANTASTIC site very welcoming owners.

Site very clean toilets & showers spotless plenty hot water.

Leyburn about a mile away nice place for food & drink. Plenty to see & do around the area.

The owners had a BQ and invited us for food & drink which was great.

We will be returning to Cow Close can not fault this site at all.

Thank you.

Stayed 2 days at Cow Close on route to Lake District.

The site is first class in its layout, facilities, welcome and location.

Will definitely be revisiting again for a longer stay in the near future.

Excellent dog friendly site couldn't fault it. Toilet blocks new and spotless. Short walk into town.

No playground but plenty of room for the kids to run around.

Leyburn is a small market town with everything you need popular with cyclists and walkers.

Reviewer: MarknJo66 1 review from this member

Stayed for 3 nights over the bank holiday weekend and we are really glad we spotted this site. Owner greeted us on arrival and brought us our pitching information from the notice board (which was put there in case no one was available when we arrived). He was very friendly and helpful, pointing out all of the things you need to know when you go to a new site.

(We were visited briefly over the weekend by the owners to enquire if everything was OK and if we wanted any newspapers getting. Free range eggs were also available).

We had a great pitch. All the pitches were good and spacious and either level or with a slight slope.

The views from the site are beautiful. The facilities block was brand new, of good quality and was always spotlessly clean. The pot washing areas had huge sinks with plenty of hot water.

The surrounding area is picturesque with plenty of walking and cycling routes. A big bonus for us was the huge fields just off the site where we could exercise our dogs.

Great site which is a credit to the owners and in a great area. Would recommend this site to anyone.

Looking forward to going back and hope to make regular visits.
