Why stay here ...

Bolton Abbey Club Campsite 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 9 miles away from the Bolton Abbey Club Campsite 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.

Lovely peaceful site

Bolton Abbey Estate Club Campsite
Stayed here with our dog for 2 nights in June. Walked to Barden Bridge first afternoon and then to Cavendish Pavilion next day, both nice walks and areas for our dog to be off lead. There are some steep and deep bits, so do take care, but paths are very good and easy to follow. Map on entrance to site, next to Cafe. Site had lots of Rabbits and Ducks roaming around, all staff and facilities great.If you enjoy walking and relaxing in beautiful surroundings, a site for you! 😊😊🐕‍🦺

First class site and wardens

Bolton Abbey Estate Club Campsite
The site is in a superb location and there are walks from the doorstep into the Bolton Abbey estate - it is also excellent value as you now pay £15 just to park your car in one of the estate car parks as a day visitor. The facilities and site are immaculate. What really sets this site apart are the friendly and helpful wardens - enroute to the site we received a phone call on our mobile from the warden to let us know that one of the roads into the area was blocked by an accident, and another call when the obstruction had been cleared. That is going the extra mile for members! On arrival the warden advised us on the pitch that would best suit our needs. Thank you and ***** stars!

Just wow.

Bolton Abbey Estate Club Campsite
Visited May 2021 and again 2022. On both occasions the Wardens were Laurence and Yvonne, two incredibly hard working, helpful, knowledgeable and committed people. The Club in general and this site in particular are lucky to have them. The other reviews already detail what a fabulous site this is and the various reasons why. In summary location is everything. Just wow. Infact don't go, you'll hate it, and I'll have more chance of getting in next year...

Nice small site, very relaxing.

Bolton Abbey Estate Club Campsite
had 2 nights here last weekend, very nice smaller site and very quiet and relaxing, lovely scenery within the woods , plenty of wildlife around the site too. wardens were very friendly and helpful with any queries we had, facilities spotless as per with the sites in the club. only small negative was we arrived slightly before the 1pm check in time so pulled up outside the entrance, there is a small tea room adjacent to the camp site, the woman on their gate came straight across to us and said 'she cant have us blocking her entrance' to which i looked at the rear of our small caravan and pointed out we were clear of her car park entrance, she just repeated we cant block, and suggested we reverse all the way back out or go for a drive on the moors !! with a caravan in tow ! she was a bit abrupt about it, we just said we arent blocking anything at all and even moved a little further away to stop her moaning anymore, was uncalled for on her part and we were actually going to go in her shop to grab a coffee while we were waiting but she put her own block on that. so just be aware if your early watch out for her.

Lovely small site on several levels in light wood

Bolton Abbey Estate Club Campsite
Lovely small site on several levels in light woods, with ducks, pheasants and lots of smaller birds all around. Just next to Strid café and start of walks along the Wharfe. Strid on the Wharfe right next to site, is a beautiful area for walking - to Barden Bridge over and back along to Aqueduct and to site. Amazing amounts of true native wild garlic, Ramsons, bluebells, wood anemones, and oyster catchers, ducklings, other waders, moorhens, and much more. Other way along Wharfe to Bolton Abbey equally lovely, plus great cycling if lumpy to Grassington.
