Why stay here ...

CL of the Year Awards 2016 - 2nd Place 

Payment in full on arrival please.

Port Arthur Farm is a quiet and friendly family run CL site surrounded by several villages amidst some of the area's most beautiful countryside. Our Site mainly comprises of a meticulously maintained level field with a choice of grass or hard standing pitches, all in excess of 1.5 acres. We are open all year round and because of the sheer size of the site and variety of pitches, we can accommodate all set-ups throughout the changing seasons and in any extremes of weather, there's no boggy pitches here!

Our Site offers a brand new purpose built heated washroom (November 2015) incorporating a large shower room with w.c. and wash hand basin, another separate wc, a sink/drainer with hot water facility and a useful information area.

The location of the CL Site within our Farm was purposely chosen to optimise views of the countryside and all pitches offer pretty much round the clock sunshine (mother nature permitting!). The new washroom is directly on the site in a lovely elevated position boasting a fantastic decked area giving Campers a great viewing point over the Site.

For the keen cyclists and ramblers we are perfectly situated for exploring the surrounding networks of walk and cycle routes; nearby Nidd Gorge has recently been linked from Knaresborough to Harrogate then onto Ripley. Knaresborough is a mere 2.3 miles away with plenty of shops, pubs and restaurants, a weekly market, The Castle and Grounds and much more. Harrogate is around 5 miles down the road offering endless shops and an abundance of restaurants, not forgetting Bettys Famous Tearooms, The Great Yorkshire Showground, RHS Harlow Carr Gardens and much more. Nearby places of interest are Ripon, Boroughbridge, Otley, Leeds, Wetherby, Skipton - the list goes on and on. Closer to home, just about a mile away, is Scotton Village which boasts an excellent Pub, the Guy Fawkes Arms, which offers outstanding food (booking recommended) and fine ales . . .  so if you fancy a few drinks and a great meal in good local company, it's just a short walk from us.

Approached by its own private gated entrance and access road making your ins and outs stress free and your set-up safe, Port Arthur Farm CL is an ideal site for Caravanners and Motorhomers alike. It's the perfect place to stay whether you want to kick back and relax or get busy and explore what the area has to offer.

We think you will thoroughly enjoy your stay at Port Arthur Farm and guarantee a warm welcome from all the family (including our feathered friends!).

An excellant Site for visiting Knaresborough and beyond

We have just come back from this gorgeous Adults only CL. Port Arthur Farm is about 7 minutes drive from knaresborough and 5 minutes from Nidd Gorge. It is situated in quiet surroundings and has a spotless toilet and shower room. Some of the pitches are hardstanding but there are grass pitches if you prefer them. There is EHU and recycling facitlies The owners are a lovely couple and have run this site for over 5 years

Top secret!!!! Please do not read!

What a find this CL site is. We originally booked to arrive on Wed but the weather was atrocious so we phoned Graham to cancel and he could not have been nicer. We decided to try for 3 nights ( Fri to Mon ). Although the site was full on Friday Graham managed to accommodate us until a pitch became available on Sat. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble. The site is flat and very open with plenty of room between pitches. Facilities spotless all the time we were there. Graham is a mine of local information and always finds the time to speak to you. Good walks around the site and plenty to explore in the area. Will definitely be back.

Our first visit

This is an excellent CL with toilets and a shower, hardstandings and electric hook-ups. Access is easy and pitches are well spaced. There is a large grass area with a one hole golf green with balls and clubs available. Walking by footpath is easy from the site without going near the road. There are other walks available too. The owners are relaxed, welcoming and friendly. While we were staying there were some helicopter movements nearby, fascinating in the darkness of the evening. This site is recommended and we plan to return.
