An excellent site for those who don't need pampering

PLEASE NOTE: the GPS location of this site in the 2017/18 Sites Directory Handbook is WRONG! The owner of the site when I phoned said "whatever you don't go into the village" and unfortunately this is exactly what the GPS code as printed in the book did!! The correct GPS code for the entrance to the site is 54.28211 / -1.73394 As for the site, it is an absolute gem with superb views over the unspoilt countryside. It is a perfect location for going to the local towns of Bedale, Leyburn, Masham etc. etc. as well as so many of the numerous locations that are there for you to visit, however there are no brochures or tourist notes at the site itself. For those of you who like quite exceptional ice cream, it is well worth going to the utterly amazing Brymor Ice Cream farm that can be found half way between Masham and Leyburn GPS code 54.25878 / -1.72805 There is excellent dog walking from the site which we used to the full during our 5 night stop. The only downside I have to mention about this otherwise exceptional site however is, that there were 2 outfits on site when we first arrived both of whom had dogs and both of whom thought it was perfectly acceptable to let there dogs run free at all times. I had to pick up their deposits of these dogs on several occasions before their owners understood that it wasn't acceptable!! We will definitely be returning to this beautiful site, if for no other reason than to walk to the amazing 'Cover Bridge' pub, some 40 mins. walk away, so that we can sample some of the truly excellent beers they serve as well as the great value belly swelling food!

Excellent Site

We have just had 3 lovely days and wished we could have stayed longer. We totally agree with other reviewers, the site is perfectly situated with excellent views ,ideal for walking and visiting the dales. Just because this site only has the basic facilities should not put people off,this cl is definitely worth visiting and we will be returning.

Great Getaway

Just returned from a couple of nights at Manor Farm and as we are new to visiting CL's didn't really know what to expect. What a great place to visit if you want to get away from it all, pease and quite in bucket fulls, fantastic views, great walks etc. We will certainly be retuning for more of the same.

Superb site

Lovely CL, well kept grass. Agree with other comments. I don't know why this site isn't full all the time as it is one of the best we have been to.  I can only imagine it is because of the lack of a photo or website that people can see. If we return to the area we will definitely use this site again. Good dog walking straight from the site. Really good pub about 2.5 miles walk.

A Hidden Gem With Open Views

We stayed here a few years ago and enjoyed our stay. Returning to this area Sept 2016, we decided to pay a re-visit. The site is all grass on a gentle slope (which is not mentioned but it was easy enough to level with blocks.) Electric is supplied from the top corner of the field, with extension reels supplied. Recycling onsiteby the bins and water and chem disposal close by. This is a very open site on all but one side, so it can be rather windy but the views across the valley are lovely.There is a footpath that runs by the site, to the little church and either back into the pretty village (gated at one end) or westwards towards Middleham. It is a very peaceful site and is close enough to such places as Middleham, Leyburn, Bedale etc.
