One of our favourites

We've just come home from our 3rd visit to Hurries Farm over the last few years. We really enjoy staying there and it has a special place in our hearts. It's a working farm, so yes, there are chickens roaming around and there are sheep and rhea's in the next field. The sheep dogs are lovely and very well behaved and follow David's instructions and whistles. It's all part of the charm of the place! Wendy and David are both lovely. The site itself has always been well presented when we've been there, there's a EHU on each pitch, which are also hard standing, with the grass being a reasonable length. There's even a picnic table in the middle, if you wanted to use it. It is on a slight slope, but nothing too drastic. We will definitely be returning again in the future - we might even get good weather sometime!

A little piece of yorkshire heaven

What can i say about Hurries Farm, from the moment you arrive David & Wendy make you feel most welcome and as its a working farm so do the animals. As a frequent visitor to the site we love coming and relaxing here - we love listening and watching the farm animals and have been invited personally by david to have a look around his farm. Amenities are great and easy to access and well posted. We love getting fresh eggs from the hens each time we come and the angus beef tastes amazing. - Thank you David and Wendy for sharing your little piece of yorkshire with us and being excellent hosts. Simon & James. X

A good time was had by all

We met several of our caravan friends at this site and overall we all thought it was excellent. All the pitches had hard standing and any slight slopes were easily compensated by the addition of a few chocks. The site itself was very quiet and peaceful with a river running along the bottom edge. Despite being a working farm with live stock the farm was very clean and tidy and access through it to the CL site was very easy. Access to the farm itself is straightforward and best achieved by following the instructions in the Caravan Club book. The farmer, David, was very friendly and helpful and took several of us out into his fields to watch his dogs round up the sheep for feeding. The area around the site is outstanding with plenty to do and see. Skipton on a market day is well worth a visit Overall we all enjoyed our week and would definitely book-in again should we revisit the area. Thanks, David, for making our stay so memorable.

A charming spot away from the major dales crowds

For us this was a positive experience from the beginning. We needed a space at short notice and David was my fourth telephone call - the previous three already being fully booked on the Saturday night. We arrived to a hospitable welcome. It's lambing time, and David was around, but I had already asked him if there were any constraints about where to go and knew a couple of the pitches were reserved. The grass was well mowed and everything worked as it should. Some reviewers have commented on the WC disposal - for me it worked fine without any back splashes or overflowing. I've emptied on much 'prettier' ones, which haven't worked nearly so easily. A fellow camper pointed out that, for rinsing the WC, using the tap with the hose in the barn is much easier than using the labelled tap in the same barn, and I was grateful for that advice. We had no trouble with the power. David reminded us it was only 10 amps, so we had to control how we used it - but we managed our 7 days using the kettle, microwave and heater (it was around zero most nights) without tripping the breaker. There were never more than 5 units during our stay. We are not dog people and the site was full of them, but we had no trouble. And during our time we saw no evidence of poor dog interactions, nor were we bothered by excessive barking. And we found the location to be excellent for exploring the southern dales. Malham, Settle and Horton are all close. The walking is superb, although there were times when we were glad of tha OS explorer map and the trusty compass - the major paths are well signed, but away from the crowds less so. Finally, Wendy helped us choose some of their Angus beef for the freezer. We have used our first piece and the taste and tenderness were outstanding. We have no hesitation in recommending this site to others.
