Call of the Curlew

West Leas Farm
Just spent two fantastic weeks at this wonderful site. Quiet, tranquil and relaxing, the scenery is worth the stay alone. The owners were helpful, yet discreet. Sheep graze in the surrounding fields; high above, the regular sight and sound of the Curlews take you far away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. There is a small village within both cycling and walking distance. Great local butchers, small shop and a pub all si along the main square. We enjoyed a bike ride into Ripon which is a lovely market town; if you're into visiting excellent attractions the majestic Fountains Abbey is close by. Only slight point: the toilet/shower facility is partly finished. The toilet is functional, but staring at a half finished shower cubicle and relevant fixtures is a disappointment. I understand the reasons for not being able to use it but at least it could be finished off.

A fantastic CL

West Leas Farm
We have just spend 4 nights at this great CL. The site is immaculately kept and a great size - plenty of room for children to play in the central area. Lovely views, easy access to many attractions (Forbidden Corner a must if you have children), free range eggs sold, a toilet and shower under construction, very welcoming owners. We had a lot of rain but ground drained very well. Highly recommended.

Very enjoyable stay at excellent CL

West Leas Farm
West Leas proved an excellent choice for our first outing since Covid restrictions for the second year were eased. We were welcomed by Catherine on arrival, and found the site very well maintained, with very good facilities - the toilet emptying point even has flushing, and to have free WiFi on a CL is still exceptional. The field is sloping, but pitching was no problem with chocks, and having chosen the pitch at the top, views were great especially of the sunsets. The delightful village of Kirkby Malzeard is only about 20 minutes walk - I recommend the locally baked cakes at the village stores. There are lovely local walks taking in other villages such as Galphay, and plenty of quiet lanes for cycling. Fountains Abbey is easily accessible by cycle or car. A great discovery for us was the amazing Himalayan Garden and Sculpture Park at Grewelthorpe, where there is also Hackfall Wood. Ripon is about 20 minutes by car and well served by supermarkets especially the high quality Booths.

A really wonderful farm CL

West Leas Farm
Simply one of the best CL's we have visited. Ideally situated for touring both the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors National Parks as well as many interesting towns and villages. The site is well kept grass with good drainage on a slight slope. The approach roads from Ripon can be a bit of a test as they seem to breed rather large tractors in Yorkshire and this site is set in a real rural area. The views from the site are over miles of fields and in the distance the heather clad moors. A great place for dogs as well. We stayed for a total of 7 days at either end of our caravan holiday and loved every minute of them. TV and WiFi reception is fantastic as well. Mr & Mrs Raw, the owners, are very cheerful and helpful. We will certainly be stopping there again!

Amazing CL

West Leas Farm
A warm welcome by Catherine and he lovely Chocolate Labradors! Beautiful site situated in the Nidderale Valley (An area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) The site is 1/2 Acre and more than big enough. Facilites include a clean Chem toilet disposal area, water tap and lots of recycling bins. We stayed here for walking, and there are plenty of fantastic walks straight from the site. Access to the site is very easy and the roads are nice and wide. EHU was spot on and we were surprised to find the site had free Wi-Fi! A great site that we will be returning to.
