Manor House Farm
Lovely quiet site with great long distance views from every spacious pitch. Very helpful welcoming owners. Lots of walks from the site and some great bridal ways for mountain biking. Very handy having a great pub a few minutes walk away. Will be back!

A Piece of Heaven a little gem 💎

Manor House Farm
Found Manor House Farm site a couple of weeks after opening and been returning regularly ever since. Definitely one of our favourite sites and highly recommended. Truly a hidden gem with beautiful views, well away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Facilities are basic, hook up, mains water and Elsan. This site has everything you need for a care free peaceful getaway. Whatever the weather, either snug in the van or out in the great outdoors.... and for the children too, just what they need, surrounded by nature and animals in the fields all around. Unpretentious no frills site which adds to the tranquil setting. This is a working farm and as such you may well get a glimpse of its life and workings. Location is far from glitzy but close enough to visit all the local villages, with walking routes and market towns in all directions. Not visited the local chapel although assured we would be made welcome. Frequented the local dog friendly pub at the end of the lane many times, always receiving a warm welcome, good beer and food. Kathleen and Derrick are the perfect hosts and very friendly despite being extremely busy working on the farm and always available to assist should you need anything. Having been regular visitors we now consider Kathleen and Derrick to be good friends and can spend quite some time catching up and chatting.

Quiet site with outstanding views and friendly owner.

Manor House Farm
This is a lovely quiet little site with outstanding views and very friendly owner. You need your own facilities as the site has none, apart from the essentials, electric hook up, water, toilet waste point. There is a pub nearby that is probably very popular with a nearby static caravan site, so booking for dining my be required at weekends, lots of nearby footpaths and bridlepaths, and the site is centrally located for Skipton and Settle. Access to the site is down some country lanes but they are accessible for a caravan or motorhome.
