Great little CL

Ridgefield Cottage Nursery
We stayed here for 3 nights on our way home from Scotland in July 2021, and we will definitely stay again. The site consists of a well mown grass field behind the nursery, surrounded by trees. We didnt have any rain so cant comment on drainage but the field is generally level and flat. Access is very easy from the A1, and although the driveway into the nursery is a little bendy there is plenty of width and height. Facilities consist of two toilets, one with a shower, and both kept very clean and tidy. All pitches have electric hook up. Owners are very friendly but unobtrusive. There is a discount for campers if you buy plants from the nursery. One of the best features of this site is the location. Knaresborough is a short (but hilly) walk away; its a pleasant market town and there are plenty of pubs and restaurants to choose from. You can catch a train from Knaresborough station to Harrogate (Bettys Tea Rooms) or York (Railway museum and cathedral). Supermarkets and petrol stations are a short drive away. We would recommend this site.

Weeks holiday

Ridgefield Cottage Nursery
Just returned from a week's holiday at this CL close to Knaresborough. The pitches are in a small field set back away from the road so is very peaceful. The owners were friendly and helpful. The toilet and wet room were clean and tidy. Plenty of room for each pitch in a lovey sunny field. 10 minutes by car to morrisons. 10 minute walk to the Cricketers Pub and 20 minutes walk to Mother Shiptons Inn which has a lovely beer garden overlooking the River. Lots of walks in the area and places to visit. Close to Harrogate, 10 minutes on train, and to RHS Harlow Carr Gardens. Its a lovely CL and well worth a visit.

Great Weekend

Ridgefield Cottage Nursery
We arrived Friday afternoon and were welcomed by the owner, with a tour of the facilities. We were soon pitched and setup in a lovely location. Facilities were clean and tidy, with shower, two toilets, information book, recycling bins and waste disposal area. Easy walking access to Knaresbrough nearby, with Mother Shiptons Inn, just 15 mins walk. A great welcome and the best Steak and Ale pie I have ever had. From Knaresborough easy access on the train to York and Harrogate. Well worth a visit to this CL

Lovely Site

Ridgefield Cottage Nursery
A lovely site. Pitching area is all grass so early morning and late evening the grass was quite damp. The owner welcomed us on arrival but we never saw him again, even on leaving. There is a single toilet and a shower toilet room. Both kept very clean. Unfortunately in both of these areas there was no sanitiser and none at the chemical waste area. The walk into town is about a mile. At the bottom of the road there is the Cricketers PH and yes you can sit out back and watch the cricket. Plenty of shops in the town and there is also a Morrisons nearby....turning left out of the site...following sat nav! Opposite Mother Shiptons there is a lovely area to walk in around the river.

Wonderful stay

Ridgefield Cottage Nursery
We initially booked for 4 nights, but as it was so peaceful stayed a total of 6 nights. A wonderful CL easily reached from the A1. Just a 10 minute stroll into Knaresborough and a short drive to Harrogate. The owners were very friendly, accommodating and provided everything needed for a relaxing stay. The price is still £20 per night and very good value for the peace and location alone. The added bonus is it is a hardy plant nursery and we were able to leave with some extremely well priced plants and still get 10% off the price.
