Why stay here ...

Bolton Abbey Club Site is one of the prettiest locations on the network - it is part of the Bolton Abbey estate and located in an open glade surrounded by woodland and the glorious Yorkshire Dales.  The site attracts lots of wildlife with ducks, pheasants, other birds and squirrels often congregating around the site. Within the boundaries of the estate are some 75 miles of footpaths through moors, woods and farmlands, all easily accessible from this North Yorkshire caravan site. The woods include some lovely dog walks. The ruins of the 12th century Bolton Priory stand on a placid curve of the River Wharf and have been painted by Turner and Landseer as well as earning praise from Wordsworth.

Skipton is a mere 8.5 miles away from the Bolton Abbey Club Site and is an historic town with traditional cobbled streets and a picturesque canal to wander along. There is also a regular street market and well preserved medieval fortress, which are a must for visitors to the caravan park. Skipton also serves as the starting point for one of England's most beautiful train journeys - the Settle to Carlisle line. The nearby pretty village of Grassington offers stunning views, gorgeous stone buildings, shops and pubs. The Yorkshire Dales is home to a variety of tearooms and cafes, offering the perfect opportunity for refreshments after a busy day exploring. Dusty Bluebells is reported to serve delicious local produce and fine teas and coffees. The Red Lion at Burnsall and the Devonshire Arms at Bolton Abbey are great options for places to eat and drink that are not too far from the site. Both pubs are an easy 3 mile riverside walk away, in opposite directions.

Beautiful site, perfect location

Bolton Abbey Estate Caravan Club Site
Our first visit to this site, we were more than pleased when we were greeted by the friendly wardens and shown which pitches were available. The site is kept spotless, including the shower / toilet facilities and we could not fault our stay. Previous comments about phone signals are irrelevant as far as we are concerned - there is a warning on the website so should not be a surprise and surely anyone staying in this vicinity is more interested in walking and taking in the relaxed feeling of the site. The situation is wonderful with the whole of Bolton Abbey Estate within easy walking reach - and what beautiful walks - the riverside and priory ruins are delightful with even a cafe stop on the way! As far as using the car, the whole area is wonderful, Grassington has amazing cake / ice cream / sweet treats everywhere as well as of course lovely pubs and restaurants. Skipton is lovely for a wander around, especially on market days and only a fifteen minute drive away. We had a few perfect days here to recuperate from a busy time renovating our home and were sad to leave, we will definitely return.

Lovely last Minute Visit

Bolton Abbey Estate Caravan Club Site
Decided to have a short four night break away so didn’t want to travel too far, even though site only 30 miles from home we have never stopped here before, as we are lucky enough to be near enough to visit this area for a day trip out. Firstly if you are not keen on trees or too much shade maybe this site not for you. It really is a lovely site in a stunning location. The walks down to the river, around the estate, Abbey, etc are great, especially when the sun shines! Great wardens and the tidy site and spotless facilities are a credit to them. The site shops sells essentials although running down now with being end of season. Managed to get EE phone signal and 4G where we were pitched down on the cul de sac, lots say they have had no signal etc so maybe depends on network or pitch. The CAMC directions need to be followed also check in time at 1pm, not much waiting space. If you park on any of the car parks on the Estate you have to pay and it cost us £12.50 today, valid for the day on any car parks, think there are three on the Estate. Great walks direct from site though. Settle, Grassington and Skipton great places to have a look at. Pretty sure we will return soon.

Hidden Gem

Bolton Abbey Estate Caravan Club Site
First time staying at Bolton Abbey and intend to return. Such a peaceful site. The site managers Laurence and Yvonne are a lovely, friendly couple. On arrival we were greeted by Yvonne by name, a first for us , a really nice personal touch. The site itself is quite small and in parts shaded due to the trees, the sunny pitches are on the top level . The TV signal is very poor, thankfully we had an external cable with us, phone and internet signals are almost non existent too, however the site has a pay phone. The on- site facilities were kept spotless and there is a very well stocked shop. No play area for children however, possibly better suited for couples. The River Wharfe is minutes from the site , so many walks can be done from here with no need to take the car. We were booked to move on to another site but loved our stay so much that we cancelled and spent the entire holiday at Bolton Abbey. Thankyou for making our stay such a pleasure Yvonne & Laurence

Peaceful site in excellent location

Bolton Abbey Estate Caravan Club Site
Beautifully peaceful site in an excellent location. Located by the Strid Wood Tea Room and Car Park, you can access the estate and woods directly from site. Lots to do and see in the area. Loved the location for our children to visit Bolton Abbey, the Welly Walk and stepping stones, however the site was almost so peaceful I felt it was more suited to couples.
