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.

Most helpful Wardens ever

Just had 4 nights at this site. We arrived about 20 minutes early as we had set off early because of the bad forecast (high winds). Upon arrival the lovely Wardens let us immediately onto site, and also 2 other outfits that had done the same. Fantastic common sense rarely seen before at this site. Cannot thank the Wardens enough, we were greeted with pleasant smiles and a little bit of a banter. The site was immaculately clean, lovely facilities, and such a pleasure to be treated with such kindness. Thank you.

Excellent site

8/9 March 2019 Our second visit to this lovely site. Friendly and helpful staff, spotless facilities, with the additional bonus of an on-site bistro, The Wanderer. The site is just under two miles from Knaresborough centre, however, if, like us you have dogs, you can take a longer route via the Nid Gorge. This route will take you around two hours. Once in town, there are plenty of hostelries (most dog friendly) some lovely cafes along the river and the castle is well worth a visit. You can take the train into York or Harrogate for around £7 return (again dogs are allowed on the train.) Back on site, the Bistro offers a varied menu with a decent selection of beers, wines and spirits. We had two main courses and two drinks each and the bill was £48 so around the same price as the nearby Guy Fawkes pub that also does excellent food. All in all, this site will appeal to those who like peace and quiet but also like to eat out and a beer or two. First class.
