What a Cracker

Level field with, sloping driveway up to entrance. Access to and from site is in a straight line. Usual road noise at busy times is minimal. Train approx. once an hour is a local two carriage, again noise minimal. Owner has put up a special arial, with leads in a metal bin, points on all EHU. So TV reception good. Although all grass the drainage is nothing short of a miracle. We spent two nights on the wettest weekend and yes the grass was wet, but firm. As the site is so level and entrance downhill leaving was no problem. Views in good weather will be great. Plenty of grass, and no dogs, so bring the kids and let them play. Plenty of small local villages to explore. Local village with shop pub etc., about 250yds away. Very friendly locals, they opened gates on both occasions when towing caravan. Old Swan in nearby Gargrave very nice food at reasonable price. All in all highly recommended,

Quiet Site in Southern Yorkshire Dales

The site is small and well laid out. As noted in other reviews there is some occasional noise from the nearby railway line but we did not find this too intrusive. Likewise the adjacent lane and road (A65) within 200 metres of the site. Again we did not find this a significant issue but appreciate this may not be the case for everyone. Access to either Skipton or Settle can be by bus which runs every hour (every two hours on Saturdays) otherwise access to these and other locations of interest is by car. The site has very poor to none-existent TV signal and this has been rectified by the owner by the provision of a High Gain TV aerial with outlets behind and below each power point. Extra long coaxial leads are supplied and are kept in the round bin beside the waste and recycling wheelie bins. There is a small but reasonable Coop store in Gargrave the village between Hellifield and Skipton but if you want a larger supermarket then there is a Tesco's and Morrisons in Skipton. The walk along the Leeds Liverpool Canal from Gargrave to Skipton or Gargrave to Newton Bank is easy. For walks further afield the Malham and Goredale Scar are worth a look. The site owner was very pleasant no rudeness as suggested by one reviewer. This is a site to which we will return and if asked would we recommend it the answer is a resounding YES. This is everything a CL site should be. It is worth noting that we were there during a period of exceptionally heavy rain, The site did not get flooded there was no standing water anywhere on the site and the motorhome which pitched up for a couple of nights had no problems in driving of what should have been a very wet field.

Perfect for a quiet break, with steam trains as added bonus

Beautifully kept field, with a good amount of space between each of the hook-up points. Small lane running past the field on the one side, with occasional cars, tractors and cyclists! Little by way of facilities (so my other half now has placed different specifications on what facilities we do look for!!!!!), but if you don't want or need much, then this is ideal Owners son strolled up to see us on the first night, and even helped tweak the awning....the family are caravanners, which helps! He also took payment, which was ideal! Think the best spot is the one in the top corner (keep driving straight on when entering the field), but that was already taken when we arrived....very high winds and lashing rain whilst we were there, and the space nearest the gate quite exposed. Lovely views, and great proximity to Skipton, Settle and the North York Moors. Oh, and the odd steam train going past the field, which has to be a bonus!!!!!! We spent a whole morning at Hellifield Station watching steam train manoeuvres!!!!

Very pleasant CL

This is a very pleasant CL. It just provides the essentials you need for a peaceful stay. Electric hookups - water point (sometimes a bit slow) - good toilet disposal facilities - level and well drained field - and good views. There is a gated access from the small road. Just 5 mins walk to buses to Skipton or to Settle and beyond. Hourly service. TV reception fine, but we used a satellite rig as well. Owner calls for a chat and payment, so no pressure. We watched some lovely sunsets when we stayed for a week in early April. Would definitely use this CL again.

Nice site in a great location

A well-kept site - all grass which was interesting on the wettest weekend of the year so far, but no problems getting off. It has a tap, bins, chemical disposal and a night light. Good views and sheltered to the rear by a high, walled, bank. Peaceful except for an occasional farm truck and passing train, and of course lots of birdsong! Rabbits and cyclists can also be spotted. The location is great. As well as the obvious countryside attractions, the train station is just a 15 min walk away, and from there you can catch a train on the Settle/Carlisle line, or over to Morecombe, and of course Gargrave/Skipton/Leeds. Hellifield has a pub, coffee shop, and well-stocked grocers with cashpoint. The station has an interesting cafe too - lots of railway memorabilia and very clean and bright. Lovely owners completed my happy experience here.
