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.

Brilliant CL

We have just returned from a brilliant 3 night stay at this fabulous CL. Spacious field which is extremely well looked after, very helpful owners and spotless toilet. The entrance to the CL is tight but the views once you get on site and relax are worth it. In my opinion the photographs don't do this CL justice (and we were there on a weekend with less than great weather!). Will definitely return when in the area again.

A very pleasant surprise

We didn't expect such a nice site/area near to Bradford and Halifax, but it was very scenic and the site was immaculate. As mentioned in other reviews each pitch has it's own water supply, waste water, electrics and leveling stones. The toilet was like one in a Club site! with soap dispenser and hand dryer. It's a shame the entrance is so tight as this is bound to exclude some vans in the future as they all get wider. We have a 2009 Sprite Alpine (2.23 m wide) and had to be careful.

Amazing 2nd visit will be returning...

Amazing site, been twice now as it’s near to where we bought our caravan and we’ve just been back for service and warranty work. The site is very well kept and the pitches are very generous, each pitch has its own water, grey waste and hook up box and has two flag stones for your tyres which are level side to side. The toilet is immaculate and the views are lovely. The entrance to the site is a little tight between two walls just in one place, so it’s important you speak to the owners to make sure someone is there to guide you in when you arrive. The owners Richard and Barbara are very helpful and friendly, waiting up for our late arrival and up again for our early departure (taking caravan for service) felt all part of the service and they were great with our ‘very confident’ seven year old! There is lots to do locally with Eureka and Shibden park nearby for families and much more besides. The site entrance can only be taken in one direction with a caravan, our advice is to plan your route to the site making sure you approach down hill from the junction with the A644, there is a roundabout near the vw dealers just up the hill if you do find yourself approaching from the wrong direction. We think it’s a great place to spend a short break or longer if your accommodation has good onboard facilities.

Perfect site

Great views, own water tap, lovely owners, many interesting places to visit ( Bradford industrial museum and it's free, Bronte museum, Leeds armoury museum, also free and free water taxi ride into city, Halifax Piece market ... To name but a few. Yes entrance is tight but well worth going in very slowly to enjoy the views.
