Why stay here ...

Knaresborough has now reopened following exciting redevelopment. There's a brand new bistro, The Wanderer, and we've added more toilet and shower facilities. Access to the site has also been improved, service points and motor home waste points upgraded, and 19 grass pitches converted to all weather surfaces. We look forward to welcoming you soon.

The Knaresborough Club Site is set in Lower Nidderdale and serves as a perfect gateway to the Yorkshire Dales and the many attractions of the North of England. The site is surrounded by mature trees and hedges and on fine days it is sunny yet well sheltered. Throughout the year, you can take advantage of the bar, restaurant and take away food on site, and the children can burn off their energy at the site's play area.

The historic market town of Knaresborough is within easy access of Knaresborough Club Site and boasts a nostalgic town crier, ancient walkways, atmospheric castle ruins, cobbled alleys and secret passages that lead to picturesque tea rooms, delightful restaurants and quaint traditional pubs. 

The central market is home to the weekly Wednesday market which is still famous for its locally prepared lavender water. Summer activities include the annual Bed Race in June and Knaresborough Festival in August. This caravan park has it all: boating on the River Nidd, scenic walks, excellent dog walk nearby, tennis and pitch 'n' putt - all in all a family destination likely to prove a winner throughout the season. Don't miss beautiful Ripley Castle, the old Court House Museum, magical Mother Shipton's Cave and Petrifying Well.

Fabulous Site Team

Great welcome from the site team and nothing was to much trouble. I liked that they had gone that extra mile and provided print out of walks around the site which where very helpful. Site staff very approachable and pleasant. The Bistro was very welcoming and James the bar manager is very polite and friendly. We had our dinner every night we stayed here with no complaints. The food is very good. My only constructive criticism is that the opening and closing times and food times need to be on the doors.

Weekend away

This was our second visit stay to this site ,the 1st being the old site /layout and it was not a nice welcome from the old wardens ,but this time all was redeemed The wardens were spot on ,and the overall site is well maintained with its new facilities ,we tried the new bistro out and it ticked the boxes . You can walk into Knaresborough via two routes ,( you can get a small made up leaflet from the information desk showing these routes) and this is about 1.75 miles by road which we opted for there is also a bus service that runs along side the site to Knaresborough/Harrogate/Ripon/York ,but check the times as its not as frequent as you would like ,plus its a company called explorer which means if you buy a all day return then its only this bus company service that you can use . but if you get to Knaresborough then there is a better bus service running every 10mins to Harrogate Both Knaresborough and Harrogate are the main visiting points locally , but going further a field to explore is not a issue as this part of Yorkshire has plenty to keep you interested. there is a child playground and a suitable dog walk on site and digital TV coverage is good, plus getting to the site is excellent and is well placed and doesn't take you long from the A1. We came to this site just before new year and it was full ,but I know this is a very popular site ,so book well in advance as most summer months its does fill up quickly Overall a good well placed and maintained site which ticks all the boxes

Lovely Stay

This was our first stay at this site and we were very impressed with the facilities. It is a good walk into Knaresborough and because of the weather we used the taxi which work out around about £6 each way. We also had a taxi to visit Harrogate which worked out at £13 going out and return £15 There is a train service from Knaresborough to Harrogate which we did not use but the next time we visit it will be something we will look at. We had a lovely meal in the bistro on site and we really enjoyed having this facility as it give you a chance to meet people on the site

Excellent

A recently refurbished site, excellent facilities. Plus points Helpful wardens - gave assistance after hours when we had electrical gremlins; precisely the attitude expected from club staff - he also served an excellent pint! Warm welcome on arrival. The Wanderer Bar and Kitchen; decent sensibly priced grub, proper well kept beer. A warm refuge on a cold night with no heating. Neat, flat pitches and a tidy well kept site. Spotless facilities. Dog and bike wash; have neither but great for washing aquaroll and walking boots. Minus points Access from Knaresborough not for timid towers. Pitches close to the bar benefit from the outside smokers' views on Brexit, volume adjustable upwards by adding more beer - might be more babble and more volume on a warm summer's evening.

Standard of site

We spent last weekend at this site which is excellent and must be one of the best on the network! The bistro is a credit to the site although we had to wait a little while the food is cooked fresh to order, the staff are very attentive and give there all to service. Would highly recommend this site
