Why stay here ...

The Wanderer Bistro will not be serving food or offering a takeaway service on Wednesdays & Thursdays until further notice. This is due to staff shortages. The Bar will remain open and you are welcome to join us for drinks. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

One of our many caravan and motorhome sites in North Yorkshire, 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.

The Wanderer Restaurant awful Fish and Chips Saturated in FAT

Knaresborough Caravan Club Site
The Knaresborough Site I cannot fault and agree with all the wonderful comments with the exception of The Wanderer Restaurant. I had the Fish and Chips takeaway. The Fish and Chips were saturated in FAT running freely out of the sides of the Takeaway box. Truly awful and ruined clothes. As pensioners we have had a lot of Fish and Chips Takeaways in our 65+ years up and down the country and this is the worst ever and I don’t say this lightly. I’m not sure if the Wanderer Restaurant is independent but

Great location

Knaresborough Caravan Club Site
This site is in a great location and is very clean and tidy and The Wanderer restaurant is superb, but if you want peace and quiet this isn't the site to go as there are too many dogs.. Pitch number 79 is an awful pitch as there is a gate right behind to the dog walking field and it is constantly openlng and closing from 7am to 10pm with people all walking their dogs and chatting we had to move to another pitch, and do not have pitch 75 as this backs right onto the chemical toilet point and to top it all there is a constant hum from the restaurant and the toilet block and the toilet block only has 4 showers not enough for this size site for these reasons we won't be going back.

Excellent site - well impressed

Knaresborough Caravan Club Site
First visit to this site and really loved it. Handy for various trips out, clean and very well maintained. Extremely friendly wardens who were obviously kept busy but still had a smile on their faces. Dog walk was nicely laid out and lovely recreational field just down the road for doggy ball games. The Wanderer bistro was absolutely spot on - ate there once and had two take-aways in the space of four nights. Best onion rings we have tasted!! We will definitely be back - well done to everyone.

Brilliant stay, love this site

Knaresborough Caravan Club Site
We absolutely love this site, wardens very friendly and the site very well laid out. This was our third stay here and decided not to bring our awning as we knew it was going to rain so just brought our wind break, tried to put our pegs in but the ground was so hard, enter a lovely gentleman to the rescue with his hammer and the windbreak went up no problem. Our dog loves the dog walk and also there is a play field on the road down to the Guy Fawkes Arms which he enjoys playing on. The Guy Fawkes Arms itself is about a 10 minute walk away, dog friendly and the meals are gorgeous. Already got another two trips to this site booked.

Excellent place to stay

Knaresborough Caravan Club Site
This was our first stay and if we had had the time we would have stayed longer. There is lot of space between the pitches although the ground was rock hard and we couldn't pitch our awning (major issue when all you have is a T6). Thankfully a very kind neighbour leant us a set of metal hard ground spikes so that sorted the problem out. The staff were very helpful, the facilities were spotless, as was the whole site. Very quiet location. It's a tidy but easy walk in to Knarseborough (very highly recommended). There is a bus route but we never saw one. There is a restaurant on site but we never had the chance to use it. The local Guy Fawkes Inn is also highly recommended. This is not a pub grub pub but some properly finely cooked food for not silly money, and a good pint if needed as well. We will definitely have this on our to do list for the future.
