Why stay here ...

Due to the current government advice surrounding the coronavirus outbreak, the Bar and Bistro will be closed until further notice for both dining in and take away. It will not be open on Christmas day and there will be no New Year's Eve party this year. This will be reviewed in 2021, 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.

Lovely well organised site

First visit to this site and it was lovely and quiet. Checkin was really well organised. Very friendly. Everything we needed to know was in the pack we were given. Wristbands for toilet blocks is a very simple but good idea, we had no issues and it seemed to be adhered to whilst we were onsite. Really enjoyed our stay. Thank you.

First visit - fantastic

Have been wanting to visit for quite sometime but can never find availability. luckily managed it this time and was not disappointed, lovely site, short walk to local pub and easy reach of Knaresborough. As covid safe as they can be as long as guests follow the rules, onsite restaurant not open but can get takeaway, had a lovely Sunday lunch. Staff very friendly and will definitely return.

Lovely site

Enjoyed our 2 nights at Knaresborough. Check in was safe and efficient and the staff were friendly and helpful. Pitches are large and access easy. We chose to use our facilities as we find this easier due to Covid restrictions but would expect the usual high standard. The bistro was only operating a take away service but we had one and it was excellent, the home cooked chips were fantastic and it is great having such a service on site. The local pub in the village is only a short walk away and very good, we only had a drink but the black sheep was well kept. We look forward to our next visit.

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..
