Why stay here ...

Oysterber Farm CL is situated near Ingleton in the Yorkshire Dales set in open countryside midway between the villages of Low Bentham and Burton-in-Lonsdale. There are three pubs all within walking distance. At High Bentham 2 miles away, there are a good range of shops including 2 small supermarkets, full banking facilities and a post office.

Close to the three peaks of Ingleborough, Whernside and Pen-y-Ghent, this part of England offers some of the very best walking, climbing, cycling and caving. From the CL you are on the doorstep of The Yorkshire Dales, the Lake District, and the west coast seaside resorts of Morecambe Bay and the beautiful Lancashire countryside only a few miles away in the Forest of Bowland.

Ingleton and Clapham, both famous for waterfalls and caves, are very close and it is only 6 miles from the attractive Cumbrian Market town of Kirkby Lonsdale whilst the wildlife reserve at Leighton Moss is only a further 5 miles away.

Recreational facilities around Bentham are many and varied, including fishing in the river Wenning for trout and sea trout and Stocks Reservoir and the charming village of Slaidburn are only 15 miles away. There is an 18-hole golf course with a modern clubhouse 2 miles away at High Bentham and a very active footpath group organizes guided walks around the area every week; there are 28 well sign posted walks in all. Both on and off road cycling is very popular and there are many green roads free of traffic to ride, including a cycle way that runs the length of the Lune Valley all the way to Morecambe on the Coast with branches off to various other destinations. This Facebook page may be useful.

Close to the CL is the owners Studio Pottery where you can book a pottery course. Ranging from half a day to a full week, or simply just to come and watch. The area was once famous for its small potteries and the nearby village of Burton-in-Lonsdale was the centre of this rural industry. The pottery is produced in the traditional manner, mainly on the wheel and fired in a gas kiln to stoneware temperatures and sold from the showroom which is on site.

Dogs are welcome but must be kept on a lead at all times due to livestock in the adjacent fields. There are many walks direct from the CL for exercising them, two of our favourites are on the banks of the Rivers Wenning and Greta, just ask us for details when you arrive.

It is a very quiet site and has electric hook up points, a shower, WC and washbasin.

If you need any further information, do not hesitate to contact us.

Lovely location

Thought we would place a review as there has not been one since 2013. Really nice area and the site is in a quiet location with nice views. Pitches are a  bit challenging but as long as you bring your leveling devices it is fine. The only slight issue here is that the awning is offset due to the sloping. Facilities are OK but could do with a revamp and more regular cleaning. Shower is good but the room is a touch too small and it could do with a couple more hooks as there is nowhere to put anything down easily. The toilet room is large and adequate but needs a good clean and revamp. Location for walking etc is great and the pitches are not expensive. Toilet waste is done in a field, which was fine, but there is no separate tap to wash down so you have to go to the tap used for drinking etc. which is not ideal. Finally the grass was fairly long and could do with a cut and a guy turned up to start strimming at 7.30 one morning!!

So overall we would recommend the site but feel it needs a few tweaks here and there to make it to the standards we have seen at other CL's.

Close to home but a million miles away.

We found this to be a great site. We had the entire CL to ourselves so weren't fussed about the one toilet and one separate shower, which were both immaculate and do in fact have outside lighting after dark. No rush for payment nor to move off on departure day. The field is sloping but we opted for the one level hardstanding 'pitch' by the amenity block, great views to boot from here. The chemical waste disposal is just through the gate in the field between the house and the road. Great base for exploring Ingleborough and surrounding area.

A little gem!

Visited this CL after reading other reviews. We found the site easily enough, although the entrance is a little tight if you don't get it right. The welcome was great. The owner showed us the facilities and where the van field was. We were asked to complete a registration form and return with it and the site fees when we had set up. no hurry. A lovely spot, with great views and easy access to local places of interest. All the facilities were clean and tidy. My wife's only complaint was that the grass was a little long. All in all we loved it. We've already booked to return later in the year.
