Reviewer: VStromNeil 7 reviews from this member

 I booked two nights at this site, either end of a trip to Scotland. In the end I only used one of those bookings but because I paid for both Louise told me she now owed me a night! I plan a return trip to the Yorkshire Dales in September, so I'll get my second night after all.

Usha Gap is an open field campsite, there is a huge amount of room and guests are pretty much allowed to pick wherever they like. There is a small area next to the river but very close to the road and two more large fields. I chose a quiet and shaded spot near the shop and facilities.

Louise said the road, which can be busy during the day, is quiet at night, she was right, I didn't hear a car or motorbike much after 8. 00 pm.

The grass had not been cut when I was there, it may be at other times but it was easy to find a nice flat tent pitch.

The facilities are kept clean and are very good if a little dated in that there are (in the gents), a row of urinals, a row of sinks and a row of toilets and also showers. If you like your privacy when washing you'd best be early. The washing up facilities are in the same block. Indoors, what a treat and were always clean during my stay. There is also a drying room which two fellow motorcyclists were using, having got caught in a thunder storm. In addition there are two more toilets that are separate from the others.

The overall atmosphere is quiet and relaxed and the amount of space on site means you can be as social or unsociable (me) as you like. The shop has some tasty goodies, including ice cream and some local form produce.

A really lovely campsite and one which I will use again.

 This is my 3rd review for this site, can't recommend it highly enough.

Louise the owner is so welcoming and helpful, there are no strict check-in and check-out times, so no rushing to leave, and no set pitches so you can pitch wherever you please.

The facilities are always spotless, showers always warm and never had to queue. The shop is small but has all the essentials and much much more.

The site itself has such beautiful views and the surrounding areas are great to explore. There are great walks direct from the site. A pub and tea rooms in the nearby village of Muker, and a fish and chip van that visits usually on a Friday evening.

We have been going to the site for a number of years and have never been disappointed. Already looking forward to booking a few trips again for 2023.

 Usha Gap campsite should be the model for every National Park, Outdoor pursuits campsite.

They don't welcome noisy, anti-social people.

It's hard to take issue with any of the site qualities.

Well done the owners and many many thanks.

 What a fantastic campsite, lovely welcome by Louise,

Great location and so many walks from directly from the campsite.

The site was clean tidy and had amazing views.

Facilities excellent and the shower/ Toilet block was lovely and warm.

Will definitely go back. 10/10

 Excellent campsite in a beautiful valley.

The facilities are very good. The pitches are mainly flat on well tended grass.

There are plenty of toilets and free showers, a washing up room with 4 sinks and a fridge freezer (labels provided).

There are free lockers (donation to mountain rescue optional) in the facilities block which have sockets in them. Perfect for charging devices.

Whilst there is no phone signal (we're on O2) there is WiFi throughout the site.

There are firepits you can use. The reception office has a small shop with local meats, bread, milk, logs & kindling etc, plenty of things for a basic meal.

The owner is a lovely lady who was very helpful when we needed help finding somewhere local to eat (The Kings Head at Gunnerside, food delicious).

Our only complaint would be nothing to do with the campsite, but with the other users. Dog owners, you really ought to train them not to bark at the slightest thing! Just like after hours noise, it does get a bit annoying.

Cost was 46 for 2 nights for 2 adults in 1 tent with 1 car

 We love this site, it is in a beautiful setting and has amazing facilities.

The owners are very friendly and you can pitch up wherever you want in the three fields.

We did walks from the site which provide some fantastic views and lots of wildlife.

You can hear/see curlew, cuckoos, lapwings and much more.

Highly recommended.
