This little site is just about perfect for visiting historic Yorkshire.

This 3 van site is just about perfect for visiting several historic Yorkshire towns. Not far from J48 of the A1(M). True it is very small and 3 caravans just about fill the very sheltered space up. Two slabbed hard standing's with just enough room for porch awnings and a third grass pitch, all tucked inside tall trees and hedgerows. The delightful owner was both welcoming and helpful. Facilities are basic but there is an exclusive use loo (except closed temporarily due to Covid rules). Admitted, there is a bit of local traffic noise but don't let that detract from this lovely little site. Only 100 metres from the site there is a splendid local nature reserve that extends over quite a large area of wetland. Take your binoculars because there are bird hides and vantage points surrounding 2 large ponds / small lakes and hard surfaced paths throughout so it's accessible to all abilities. Dog's on leads within the reserve but there is a large orchard area where the dog's can have a run around. Then within around 1/2 an hour you have the choice of visiting Harrogate or Knaresborough or Boroughbridge or Ripon. A little further and you have both the North Yorks Dales or the North Yorks Moors and for a day trip the Yorkshire coast from Hull up to Whitby. We stayed for 6 nights in September and had a great time touring round. We will return again. If nothing else this site is a great stopover point if you're heading further north on your travels along the A1(M).

A true gem

The owner of this site is so friendly, welcoming and hospitable that you cannot fail to fall in love with it. Tiny, a part of her garden, when all 3 pitches are in use it can be a bit of a squeeze, but providing you are prepared to accept this a lovely, peaceful area. The nature reserve opposite is a wonderful place to spend time watching the wildlife. Mobile phone signal can be hit and miss and tv reception can be interrupted by the heavy goods vehicles hurtling passed. Then thing you need to be aware of, as caravans and motorhomes have got bigger the lack of space means you HAVE to be considerate to your neighbours

Wonderful - nature reserve next door and brilliant for dogs!

Other reviews clearly state details on this site. We booked just one night but stayed two as the wildlife park opposite is fantastic. I spent my extra day photographing barn owls, kestrels, tree sparrows, Reed buntings, stonechats, water rails and countless other birds. A choice of three hides or you can just spend all day walking around. You have around 100 metres to walk on a very busy road so to be safe at night take a torch and a high viz jacket - just to be safe. Do not let that put you off though. Great dog walking.

Excellent site

This tiny site is a little gem just outside Knaresborough. Mrs Hartley, the owner, made us very welcome and couldn’t have been more helpful. Although only room for 3 units it had everything we needed. It is set next to a nature reserve which our dog thought was heaven. The site is next to a road which some of the local firms seemed to treat as their own private race track, but nothing can be done about that. The pitches are situated in an area surrounded by trees which made it very private and felt very secluded yet you can easily drive out. There is a toilet on site but with ehu included in the price we didn’t use it. Anybody driving past would not know there was even vans there. Highly recommend a visit if you want a little hideaway but with easy access to local places. So impressed we are going back shortly!

A lovely site owned by a lovely lady .This may be a small site ( 3 vans ) but is always clean & tidy and always a very warm welcome . A bit of road noise first thing and then again late afternoon . Have been visiting this site on and off for nearly 30 years. Lovely
