Check your approach

A lovely site with plenty of room. It is just that the directions are a bit confusing. When it says take the second right sp Thornton Watless it means ignore the sp in Bedale just after leaving the town centre but take the right turn out in the country with the white fence on the corner. I hope that helps.

Perfect

Just spent a lovely weekend at this gorgeous little site. Perfectly located mid way between Bedale and Masham and has a lovely pub in the village. We only saw the owner briefly on Saturday afternoon to pay, but didn't feel like we were abandoned, and a good information board made us feel very welcome (we were disappointed there were no eggs though!). Fields of Cow's, Sheep and friendly Hens along with good weather and the chiming of the church clock really made it for us. Each pitch has electric hook up and the added bonus of it's own water tap. Well worth every penny of the £12 a night fee, we would highly recommend Village Farm, and at less than 50 miles from home, I'm quite sure we'll be back next year. Just to note, the distance from the 2nd roundabout to the right turn for Masham, as shown on the site directions, is more like 5.5 miles, than 3, so just be aware that you haven't gone wrong if you don't reach it when you think you should!

Another Gem

Stayed tow nights on our way back to Scotland. Facilities top class, Eggs available from honesty box. Located just next to village green & pub, watched the village cricket team play on a Wednesday night - funny boundaries, with ball just missing a couple of passing cars. Great location for visiting Bedale - Masham etc. Easy access once you have traveled up the single track - we didn't meet anyone

Bank Holiday Break

I agree with all reviews, this site is fantastic, ideal for peace & quiet but not forgetting close enough to visit Bedale, Masham & Wensleydale. The chiming church clock does not disturb neither does the farm animals close by, will try & return if I can get in, very busy CL, I can see why!

Hidden gem

lovely little 5 van site, well kept, right in the middle of the countryside tho we never got woken by the cows, sheep, chickens, rabbits in the fields right next to us..... eggs for sale in a box on site!Each good size pitch has its own tap. Right round the corner is the pub, really good home cooked 'proper' meals, highly recommend. AND a good pint too! the pub and the village homes surround the cricket pitch, just wish we could have been there when a match was on. Next time. The only downside for us, hence 3 stars, is there are no walks except on the roadside and we have a motorhome and two dogs but we did walk into Bedale 3 miles away, lovely market town, on the road and it was easy with not many cars passing. Buses run to Bedale and Masham Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays although theres no marked bus stop in Thornton Watlass. Timetable on village hall. NOTE: if youre travelling from Bedale - turn first right to village, ....from Masham take second left which is a bit wider and a lot shorter than the road as directed in the book. A little gem of a site, we will definitely return!
