We love it!

When I say that we stayed at Plane Trees Farm on six occasions last year and five so far this year, you will begin to get the idea that we enjoy the experience. Our visits have included both start and end of season with most months in between. We have never yet been disappointed. The location is a great juxtaposition of peace and quiet with easy access by road or public transport to nearby towns/cities and places of interest. There is also great access to the footpath network very close by, and this leads to some long distance paths and stunning views. All this is complemented by a great welcome. For us it almost feels like coming home when we arrive at the start of a new visit.

What a CL should be like!

Visited in September. Excellent labelled recycling coloured bins, the best we have ever seen. Clean and functioning toilet with associated amenities e.g soap, hand dryer. Each pitch has own EHU and water tap. Very narrow entrance, may be difficult for larger units. Good views, quiet site. Owner welcoming and gives you a list of information upon arrival. Chemical and waste disposal points available, well laid out site . Excellent and will visit again.

A Perfect Campsite

Our review can only re-inforce the deserved positive reviews already written. We were met on arrival by the very friendly and helpful site owner, Richard, who helped to guide our motorhome through the entrance and onto the pitch. The facilities, views, tranquility and hospitality were excellent and we were delighted with our visit, enjoying a day in Halifax and a day at Shibden Hall, getting to both with ease. The short walk to the bus stop, with buses running every half hour, gave us more options than we could take and since we could not have asked for more, we will return to this campsite to explore more of the area.

Perfect stay

We stayed here in August. The site had everything we needed for a perfect stay. So much so that we didn't have time to do all that we could have done from cycling and walking on the doorstep, to sightseeing and visiting the local pubs and restaurants. The site commands lovely views, and is very peaceful. The facilities are spotless. The entrance is a little narrow but you will be met by the very friendly and helpful owner to help guide you in. Heartily recommended

A little gem!

We recently stayed on this site in July and were much impressed from the moment we met owner Richard who kindly guided our fairly wide 'van through a somewhat tight approach to the site. Throughout our stay Richard could not have been more welcoming and helpful. Each large pitch has a fresh water tap and grey water disposal as well as very useful and time-saving sideways levelling slabs. We went to Shibden Hall, setting for the recent TV series 'Gentleman Jack' and the impressive 18th century Piece Hall which has been sensitively refurbished and is a must see.This is a very handy location for visits to Halifax, Hebden Bridge, Howarth and Bradford and we strongly commend it, whilst thanking Ricard once again for everyting. The tight approach should not put anyone off. On the contrary, once guided through, the actual site is well worth it.
