 Please note we have been advised by the owners that this site has closed due to retirement, and no longer offers camping, motorhome or caravanning pitches. If you know that this situation has changed in the future, please could you let us know. Many thanks

 A really lovely, peaceful site.

A fantastic dog walk and exercise field. Can't wait to go again. Thanks to Richard for a great site.

The toilets and showers could do with an upgrade but it didn't detract from the overall experience.

 Our second visit to this beautiful site. Very peaceful in a gorgeous setting, 10 minute drive into Bedale or short walk along the roads path of slightly longer route through the fields and woods.

10 minute walk into the lovely village of Crakehall, where the village pub (The Bay Horse) is. Excellent dog friendly pub with good food and good range of beers.

Well situated for visiting other places - Bolton castle, Jervaulx Abbey, Aysgarth Calls and Leybourn.

Can't think of any negatives regarding this site.

 After spending a fantastic week at Heron Pond Caravan Park with 2 dogs we can only recommend this site. A good dog walk (Two Acre Meadow Field) available for them to have a good run.

The site was well cared for and talking to other caravan owners stated they are regular visitors returning often.

If you want pond pitches 1-5 are the best option.

A pleasant stay allowing us to relax and enjoy the break good accommodating

Owners Richard & Jean helpful and pleasant.

 Lovely quiet clean site Well maintained by owners. Good dog walk and exercise area. We will be booking up again.

Not to far away from Bedale town centre and good base camp for visiting the Yorkshire Sales.

 Stayed at Heron's Pond for the warmest weekend of the year so far and what a little gem of a site this is!

Within easy reach of the A1, yet no traffic noise. Exceedingly clean showers, toilet and washing-up area and beautifully maintained surroundings.

Richard, the owner was very friendly but not in an interfering way, we'll definitely be back!

 Third time to visit. Great site, in a fantastic location with lots to do in the area.

Site is spotless male and female shower and toilets kept spotless and never a queue. There is an area for washing dishes and hand washing and a line is provided for you to use. Lovely and quiet with a some pitches over looking the pond. Fantastic dog walk best we have ever seen. Lovely couple run the site friendly but not intrusive. Definitely recommend to book.

 Once again a very relaxing week away at this very peaceful, beautiful site, set in lovely countryside on a very quiet lane, now and again you can hear the whistle from the steam train in the distance, the dog walk is amazing and also a 1 acre secure field for your pets to run and play in, then a 10 minute stroll to the Bay Horse Inn in Crakehall for a pint and a meal, we will certainly come back again to Herons Pond.

 Lovely adults only site. Brilliant dog walks our dog especially liked the field the owners have set aside for dogs to have a good run off the lead. We walked to Bedale which is a lovely little town. It's a fairly short walk(10mins) to Crakehall where there is a garage that sells grocery's and newspapers. The only downside was that our pitch 6b was extremely small by the time we put up the awning it was very cramped, we could not get round one side of the motorhome as it was so tight to the fence. But apart from that we loved it.

 Pretty, quiet and peaceful small site which is adults only, . Pitches are large, facilities whilst dated are cleaned to a high standard.

The owners are friendly, although I did get in bother on arrival as they hadn't received our email confirmation which I presume is floating about in cyber land.

The site offers dog owners a great exercise field and pleasant dog toileting walk, with spades at frequent intervals allowing the offending poop to be flicked away rather than placed into non biodegradable plastic bags, an alternative I very much agree with as I think its far more 'Earth friendly'

The area around offers some wonderful walks.

Bedale is a lovely little town with a mix of individual shops, pubs and cafes.

We met up with neighbours who were spending a week at Herons pond along with their dogs Tes and Tia. Ourselves and our two dogs Ralph and Ping enjoyed some lovely walks across countryside and into Bedale enjoying the company.

Would we return ? Yes, but having the means to travel and see different places we don't often do returns unless its a impromptu getaway.
