Last minute gem

We have just returned home from 2 nights at Moorcock Hall Farm. We only ended up here by chance as another CL in the same village wasn’t what we expected when we arrived so this was a hastily arranged alternative, what a lovely surprise! It has no facilities and no ehu, but does have fantastic views and cows and their calves in the next field. The owner/farmer is a lovely gent as is his mum who took the booking. The field is narrow but fairly level with plenty of room for 5 vans. It is next to a main(ish) road but there is minimal noise at night time. It’s situated in the same village as the Knaresborough club site and therefore is within walking distance of the town itself although we only ventured as far as the Nidd Gorge (could spend hours wondering round) and the Guy Fawkes Arms, 2 minutes down the hill from the CL. We enjoyed it so much we’ve booked to return in 2 weeks, well at £8 a night, why wouldn’t you!!!

Great Find

Just got back from a weekend at this CL. OK there is no electric, who needs it - the field is a little uneven, we've got levelling blocks and there is road noise through the day so what!!........the views are brilliant, the owner is friendly and the Guys Fawkes Inn down the road is excellent. A visit to Knaresborough and the Nidd Gorge are both not to be missed.....all this for only £6.00 per night.....four words sum this up.......we will be back

Lovely little find!

For visiting Knaresborough and the surrounding area, look no further than this lovely CL, with great views and walking. Very friendly owner local pub requires booking, we left it too late!

Very good apart from ...

Good site easy to access with lovely views over open countryside. Close to the attractions of the southern part of the Yorkshire dales with plenty of sights to see. The nidd gorge is on the doorstep and beautiful to walk in. Extremely friendly owner, and pub in the village does very nice food.(but you may need to book it's very popular ) The site is situated on a minor rd which is very busy at certain times of day, our only complaint would be the road noise although it was mainly at rush hours, at certain times it was peaceful.

Basic C.L

A very basic CL but in a lovely area. plenty of walking in the area, don't miss the Nidd gorge, it's a beautiful wooded nature reserve run by the woodlands trust and only a short walk from the site. I have just spent four nights there and would have loved to make it a week. AT £6 a night it's a bargain, I have payed a lot more for far worse sites
