Our "Happy Place"

Hurries Farm
We've just returned from our 7th visit to Hurries Farm, it is one of our favourite CLs and has a special place in our hearts. We got a lovely warm welcome from Wendy and David and as always we had a great stay. This CL is exactly what a CL should be - a little piece of tranquillity in wonderful countryside away from the every day hustle and bustle. We are hoping to be back at Hurries Farm during lambing time this year, as we experienced it last year and loved every minute! Even if we don't get back then, we will definitely be back in the future.

Our Favourite CL in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales

Hurries Farm
We have been going to this site for over 20 years with both caravans and motorhomes. We have always found the owners to be accommodating and welcoming. Please remember that this is a working farm set in wonderful countryside. Our children have grown up now, but it was the one holiday that they really looked forward to 'Farmer Dave's" (and our other holidays were sailing and skiing so not bad!). We choose CL's to get away from it all and this is a definitely a place where you can relax with lovely pubs, farm shop and walks. You can purchase fresh eggs, Aberdeen Angus and lamb on site. It is an authentic piece of Yorkshire without the mod cons - just perfect!

OVERPRICED CL SITE WITH GREEDY ADD ONS

Hurries Farm
I went to the farm house to pay on the second day of our stay I was quoted £17 pitch fee plus £2 extra for motorhome as it was 7 meters long , it only used one pitch space like any other caravan or motorhome so why the extra charge? I was then asked to pay an extra £2 for my tow car when I questioned this and explained that my tow car was actually in the eyes of the law a trailer and no different to a car towing a caravan the lady owner accused me of being argumentative ,needless to say that at this point I decided to cut our 5 day stay short and just paid for the 2 days. So what were we getting for £21 Per Night A sloping pitch grassed over hardstand on a sloping field electric hook up that tripped out 4 times in 2 days usually if you put more than one appliance on at a time. No water taps in the field or any where near meaning motorhomes with on board water tanks have to put away there things ,drive off the levelling blocks unhook electric cable drive to the farm house fill up with water turn around drive back to pitch relevel and hook up . How hard would it be to put water taps close to the pitches or even on every pitch at these prices. The Elsan point is a joke with a metal lid covering a filthy hole with NO Water tap you have to take your toilet cassette into a nearby barn to put water in it then return to the elsan to empty it and repeat the process until the cassette is clean, once again how hard would it be to put a water tap where its meant to be. The site also boasts a drive over motorhome waste disposal point which we could not find on our way out which meant we had to carry our grey waste to the next site ,which by the way was £15 per night all in and much better. So come on owners of this CL site up your game or lower your prices and remove the greedy add ons.

Great people, experience and location

Hurries Farm
David and Wendy made our stay very special. It was the end of lambing season and we helped feed new born lambs and felt very much part of it. David took us out in his 'mule' (4x4) to feed his sheep one day and see the sheepdogs at work - very special memories. Did two walks (7-8miles) from the campsite and drove to Malham to do the classic Malham Cove, Gordale Scar and Janet's Foss walk, but is possible to walk to Malham but adds about 7-8 miles to the walk. One toilet that was spotless, chemical disposal a bit basic but ok. 5 pitches all with views over the farm. Two Rhea birds in field next to site and lots of cows and sheep in fields. Just about got a mobile signal, no WiFi but elec hookup. Overall, we had a first class experience and can't rate David and Wendy high enough.

Peaceful friendly site

Hurries Farm
We just had a fabulous 2 days away on this site. 5 pitches on a working farm with a very friendly farmer who took the time to show us around. We even saw lambs being born. Woken to the sound of nothing but songbirds and the occasion moo from the cattle on site. Pitches spacious with electric hook up. No showers which did not matter to us but a very clean toilet. Site is very environmentally concious with recycling. Ideally located within easy reach of neighbouring villages and small towns. Will definitely be returning soon
