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.

Charming site and team

Bolton Abbey Estate Club Campsite
A great place to get away from the rat race and unwind. Yvonne and Laurence are the best. The countryside and riverside walks are stunning. The site facilities are old but immaculate. Dont expect perfection, TV reception is non existant, there is NO phone signal, however there is a payphone at reception. The villages and pubs are around 3 miles away. BUT if you want a chill out around the BBQ, or a bottle of wine at the side of the river, or stunning country walks, this site is AMAZING. We will most certainly return and next time jump on the bus to Ilkley or Skipton.

A massive thank you

Bolton Abbey Estate Club Campsite
A massive thank you is due to Laurence who went above and beyond to get in contact with me when I left my phone behind on the day of our departure. it wasn't a straight forward process and his perseverance was very much appreciated. I would heartily recommend a visit to this beautiful, well cared for and efficiently run camp site - to be able to walk straight into the Bolton Abbey estate from the site entrance is amazing and it makes a fantastic base to explore the wider area. We will definitely be back - although next time I will keep a closer eye on my phone!

Quality as expected at a club site.

Bolton Abbey Estate Club Campsite
The wardens are very helpful and check in is easy, although there are quite a few rules and regulations to go through first. E.g. dogs are not allowed on any of the grass or tree areas at any time; fortunately there is a short dog walk. The site is at the entrance to Strid Wood. There are walks in all directions. It’s worth noting that currently the Strid Cafe and carpark is up for sale and closed. Facilities are as good as expected on a club site. Check out time is 11am and the toilets close for cleaning at 10.30am. The small shop is open 9-10 then 1-5. Some pitches are next to the small private school in the woods; there is a small amount on noise during 10 min playtime but it closes at 3pm. It’s not a problem. TV - no signal, you’ll need a coaxial cable which they sell. Mobile - no signal on 3 different networks we tried, probably not any. WiFi - despite the site advertising it as having WiFi, it is unusable. It’s rarely available and when it was it’s incredibly slow and drops. It would be better to advertise this as not having WiFi then there’s no disapointment. If you like country walks, riverside paths, nature, clear night skies, small sites and club facilities, you’ll like it here.

Lovely gentle site

Bolton Abbey Estate Club Campsite
We loved our stay last week. The wardens, Yvonne and Laurence, were helpful, friendly and had a great sense of humour. I fully enjoyed the walks down to the Strid with friends and the actual site was full of birdsong, including the Tawny Owls at night! We will be back without a doubt.
