Why stay here ...

Due to the current government advice surrounding the coronavirus outbreak, the Bar and Bistro will be closed until further notice. We are pleased to offer a limited Take Away service – for more information, please contact the site team.  We thank you in advance for your support and patience.

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.

Great Location

Firstly, before I write my review, Im uneased and concerned after reading those complaining about the toilet and shower facilities or the lack of them. Do these people not understand as a business the club has a responsibility as a business and to adhere too the goverment guidelines during this pandemic for your safety and theirs for that matter. I find one review in particular quite alarming and disgusting calling other fellow caravanners "Vinegar Veras" and barging in a toilet block when it was already occupied, rules state 2 per block, some obviously dont give a damn and here we are now covid levels on the rise again because of these covidiots. If you dont have the facilities in whatever your rocking up in at the site, then dont bother turning and then complain as every site has restrictions at this time, . Doh!! Now Ive got that off my chest, the Knarsborough site is a "Gem" and well located a mile just outside the town with a restaurant and bar on site, although currently offering takeaway only at this time. I like to thank Jean for her help is securing out extended stay, she was a STAR!! Id thoroughly would recommend this site

Wonderful Stay

We loved this site and stayed 10 nights. Very friendly wardens and we had had no problem with the shared facilities. I never had to queue to use them. The band system worked well and we felt that the Covid precautions were very well implemented. There are lovely walks from the site along the river to Knaresborough, Harrogate and Ripley Castle. The takeaways from the Bisto were excellent and very handy at the end of a long day site seeing. RHS Harlow Carr is close and we had a wonderful day there. The village pub is only a short walk away and we had 2 very good meals there - a bit more expensive than most pubs but we thought well worth it..

Toilet and showers

Just stayed for the weekend at this site and unhappy with the facilities only 2 showers and toilets open is shocking and the second shower block closed all together they could quite easily have every other toilet and shower open we have been to smaller caravan club sites and they manage to open more I know we have on board facilities but we choose to go on sites and pay to use sites do expect the facilities that you pay for to be available I went to the toilet this morning it was pouring with rain and there were 2 bands hanging up already so I went in anyway to see if the toilets were empty which they were but I was met by 2 vinegar Veras who were not using any of the facilities just towel drying their hair at the mirrors they moaned that only 2 were allowed in at a time I’m not gonna stand outside in the rain while showers toilets and privacy cubicles are all stood empty while the Vera’s stood moaning THE BANDS DONT WORK CARAVAN CLUB ! Just open every thing up

Disappointing Yorkshire Trip

Being familiar with Yorkshire we thought this site would be perfect to place ourselves to help out family that have just moved to Harrogate, and it was, but that is where the positive starts and finishes. The site whilst set out well and maintained very well it is very dull, no views and frankly sitting looking at other people’s Motorhomes is not what we enjoy about being away in our van. For a site of this size to only have two showers/toilets open is frankly awful. Queuing for the loo and showers has ruined our trip, so much so we have booked a last night into anther location in order to not have to pre plan a trip to the toilet! Again, having stayed on other sites where all the facilities are open and just reminding people to be careful works much better; the club needs to more on from the bands, it is not working!

Ladies Facilities

Lovely site in a pleasant area. I realise that due to the current situation things are difficult but my comment and complaint is a specific one. I am over 70 years and have mobility issues so using the shower presented difficulties for me as there is no bench seat and no handles in the shower cubicles. I am sure this will affect others like me. It would be good to remedy this.
