Really Great Site

Firtree is a really great site. It has a mixture of hard and grass standing fully serviced pitches on a gentle slope. Ramps and levelling blocks are provided if you need them. As mentioned by others the site is accessed along a single track road, but like others we experienced no problems with other traffic. The site is very quiet and peaceful with great views towards Ripon and Thirsk. There are many footpaths in the area and it is possible to walk to Pateley Bridge in 2-3 hours. We did there and back in about 6 hours, including a great stop for waffles in the Pancake House near the bridge! As Firtree is on top a hill most of the walking ends going up hill, but the views all around are worth it. Val was so friendly and helpful when we met too. She made us feel very welcome. We had lovely long weekend at a great site!

Wonderful CL - we'll be back!

Just back after a long weekend at this wonderful CL which has so much going for it. All the recent rain had made the grass pitches unusable but Val showed us to two hardstanding pitches which were easily accessible and had their own water supply - a real treat to be able to connect the tap straight into the caravan and to ignore the Aquaroll for once! It's clear that this is a site owned by campers - the provision of serviced pitches; a ready supply of blocks to help with levelling; a dedicated WC; hedging between pitches to provide some privacy. Val & John have clearly put a lot of thought into this and it's maintained to the highest level. As others have said, there's a wealth of things to do in this area and we would thoroughly recommend a visit to Brimham Rocks which are spectacular - even persistent rain couldn't spoil our walk around the rocks. Val & John are very friendly and welcoming and it was a pleasure to meet them - also nice to spend a little time with John looking at his classic cars - MGB, MGC & Triumph 4. While Stripe Lane is narrow, we never met another vehicle on our various trips up and down it so it shouldn't put you off visiting. I had thought the gateway was a tad narrow and, with the narrow lane, I'd anticipated a few difficulties getting our Swift 580 safely through and on to the lane. My anticipation was completely unnecessary - we made it through quite easily without needing to use the grass verge in the lane. We would totally recommend this CL and will defintely be returning... Thanks Val & John!

Fabulous 3 night stay

We only stayed here for 3 nights but really wished we could have stayed longer. What an immaculately kept site and the owners should be very proud. The lawned grass was lovely and the serviced pitches were a massive bonus. The toilet was spotless and all the other amenities were well cared for. The location is ideal for Brimham Rocks Pateley Bridge Harrogate Ripon.. the list is endless. What we loved about this site was the peace and quiet and we were blessed with beautiful weather too. The views are amazing and we saw two beautiful sunsets. Our only concern was the road coming up to the site was single lane but we had no bother with other vehicles. I thoroughly recommend staying at this CL.
