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.

Won’t return

Even though the site is lovely and the wardens are doing a fantastic job sadly we will not return. The club appear to be catering more and more for members with dogs. We have nothing against dogs but they are allowed in the restaurant therefore we could not go in. The club are not considering members who are allergic to dogs or petrified of dogs. Surely to be fair to all members the restaurant should have an area that allows dogs and a dog free area!

Knaresborough caravan club site

Lovely site, great friendly helpful staff. Site is immaculate toilets and showers extremely clean. Great for dogs nice off lead walking area and welcome at the bistro inside and out. Food at the bistro was lovely we ate in and had a carry out, fast service and friendly staff more than happy to accommodate your needs. Booking advisable as it can get busy. I think food was reasonably priced. Great place to explore lovely walk along the river Nidd. Bus service outside the gate. Well worth a visit. We will definitely be back.

Knaresborough

This was our first visit to the newly refurbished Knaresborough site and we were not disappointed, it is set in wonderful countryside just outside of Knaresborough. The standard of everything is way above the Club requirements and the Wardens were very helpful and pleasant. The site is adjacent to a bus stop and we as Motor-homers always use the buses where possible. The problem is with this site is that the bus only comes every tow hours and the last bus back from Knaresborough is 5.15pm. The bus service from Knaresborough is every 7 minutes but it is a long walk into Knaresborough from the site, it say that it is one and a quarter miles but is is something more like 2 miles to the Bus station. We enjoyed a meal at the Wanderer Restaurant and the food and service was brilliant and very good value for money. A great site and we will be back.

Excellent site

Just had 5 nights at this beautifully kept site, its a credit to the Wardens. Bistro was lovely had a really good meal in there at a reasonable price and the staff were very friendly and efficient. I would recommend this site to people of all ages. The children on site were happy whizzing around the site on their bikes and not bothering anyone. Lots of responsible dog owners on site too it was lovely to see so many happy people, no one grumbling about anything at all. The Wardens were very welcoming. Definitely a site to put on our favourite list.

Clean, well organised site with ideal location

We had a warm welcome from this well-organised and clean site. It's surroundings are pleasant and we found the Bistro real bonus. The range of food and drink is good and reasonably (if not cheaply) priced.
