Update - 2020

Yew Tree Farm
As there hasn’t been a review for six years, I thought it worthwhile to offer an update: The illustrations for the site show a caravan being stored in the top corner, which is now in a dedicated enclosure the other side of the fence in the adjacent field, leaving the whole of the site for CL use. Yes, the site slopes, very much so in places, but there are plenty of bricks around to supplement anything you’ve brought with you. Yes, traction can be difficult during or after wet weather, especially around the lower, flatter pitches, but the owners make that quite clear and are eager to assist with a tow in or out. Yes, a once quieter road passes adjacent to the site and there’s far more traffic on it than there used to be. However, it’s still a “country road” and the further away from it you pitch; the less likely it is to disturb you, if you are expecting silence. Though one or other of the owners have come in for some criticism in the past, they were very friendly and accommodating to us and we couldn’t wish for better. We didn’t visit any of the local pubs, due to our precautions during the pandemic, but they are still trading, if not open all days. The site is well placed for views and walks, has good recycling facilities and at £14 per night (£13 without an awning) in September 2020, its money well spent.

Not tranquil

Yew Tree Farm
We spent four nights here on this well maintained site with good views. Unfortunately the site is close to what appears to be a minor road but is in fact very busy and as it is on a steep hill, there is a great deal of traffic noise from early morning [6.15] to late at night. The site slopes quite considerably and the choice of pitch is reduced as the potentially quietest spot is occupied by TWO of the owners caravans. The Roebuck Inn, referred to in other reviews serves miniscule portions for the main meal. I have a photograph of their 'Roebuck Pie' meal that we were served with. It resembles a round meat pie with 6 small pieces of venison in it, accompanied with three very tiny pieces of broccoli and a pitiful amount of mash.

Just spent a relaxing 3 nights at this cl, a bit slooping but wouldn't put me off coming again(2nd visit). Plenty of bricks ,wooden blocks around.Had a nice meal at the Roebuck inn ,which is less than 10 minutes walk from the site. around half hour walk down hill to Otley, so up hill all the way back ,but stopped for a pint at the Yew tree inn on the way , then another at the Roebuck inn. paid 14 pounds a night for outfit ,awning ,2 adults and a dog. which was more than stated on cc website but probably not updated. Will be going again.

Good basic little site

Yew Tree Farm
We liked this site. We did have to spend some time levelling the van but we were at the bottom of the slope too so perhaps being at the top would have taken longer. The site is good for dogs but you need to watch them near the main gate as it's close to the road. We didn't have a problem with the traffic noise like others have done. There's a dog friendly pub 10 minutes down the road and there's a nice 30 minute walk into Otley via public footpaths with plenty of places for a picnic en route. Would stay again.

Beautiful surroundings and views from this rural site.  Facilities are well labeled. Road can be quite noisy at times because it's on a steep hill. As others have said, the site is quite sloping. We did find the owner's manner very rude at times, and for that reason, we would not return to this particular site.
