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.

First Visit

This was our first visit to the site and we could not have been more pleased. Great location for visiting the area which has beautiful scenery and good link roads. Harrogate can be a bit of a bottleneck but that is where the big supermarkets are located so not a real problem. The site itself is excellent with lovely wardens who are very friendly and helpful. The pitches are hard standing and very level with facilities close by. The bistro was lovely with excellent food - the portion sizes were huge! The only downside of the whole visit were two inconsiderate dog owners which let their dogs use other people’s pitches as dog toilets - such a shame that let it down. I would have reported them but both left in the morning.

New Favourite

After several attempts to get onto this site we finally made it. Not disappointed! The site is immaculate and has great facilities, Good for walking and lots to do in the area. The only downside was the attitude of one of the wardens, you know who you are!! I will not spoil the review by furthering the complaint here but please do some customer care training!! The incident will not stop us from returning as the site has becomne our 'New Favourite'

3 Day Stay

This was our first stay here since the referb. Stayed for three days in fantastic weather in our motorhome. We could not fault any of the improvements. We ate in the bistro and the food was superb and the service was excellent, they even gave us both a free spirit at the end of the meal as it was my birthday, Chris in the bistro was an excellent barman and waiter. We hired a car for two days from Enterprise who collected us and dropped us back at site at the end of the rental and gave us 10% discount for being CaMC members. There was only one annoying point about the site and that was barking dogs. Why cannot some owners control their dogs. Members come to chill out not to be wound up by constant barking. Our mobile phone signal from 3 was non existant here nor was our 4G available.

Brilliant site

We came for the first time over the May Bank holiday. The site was full but still very quiet. We loved the walking through Nidd Gorge through to Knaresborough which is a beautiful little town. Plenty of walking, siteseeing and walking in the local area. Our dog also loved walking along the country tacks behind the site. Definitely return to try the little onsite pub which always looked quiet and explore some of the surrounding areas. Also lovely to see the friendly wardens we recognised from Stockton.
