Why stay here ...

A popular site in North Yorkshire, Richmond Hargill House Club Site in Gilling West, Richmond is a conveniently short distance off the A1 and adjacent to the A66. You will be pitching on a grassy, gently sloping location with magnificent views southwards over the Yorkshire Dales National Park. It would be a waste to use this caravan park merely as a stopover - it has a wealth of fun activities to make your family holiday memorable. 

Set in the famous area of James Herriot's novels, Richmond Hargill House Club Site offers the opportunity to see many of the locations used within the famous series with your own eyes. The park is also the area where our greatest landscape artist, J M W Turner, travelled, painted and found the subjects for some of his most unforgettable watercolours. The local Tourist Association publishes a Turner Trail leaflet for walkers to explore, with seating placed conveniently at many of the locations from which to view the beautiful scenery that inspired his legendary images.

The area offers transport links, with a bus service into Darlington and Richmond. The site is also well placed to visit the city of Durham, with iconic cathedral and picturesque location, and vibrant Newcastle, which offers great shopping and lots of places to eat and drink along the Quayside.

A one night stop

Richmond Hargill House Caravan Club Site
We used this site as a one night stop on our way from the south east to Scotland. The site is well located for this, though consequently, there is some traffic noise from the A66. Stunning view from the motorhome though. Having read some of the recent reviews, we visited at the start of July and were not allocated a pitch as such. We were offered a grass pitch, once it had been checked to establish if it was sufficiently dry. And our neighbour was assisted with additional blocks due to the slope of the land. There were hardstandings available and we were not offered one of these but we were not unhappy about this as we were just using the site as an overnight stop. Personally we found the wardens very welcoming and friendly.

Staying Again

Richmond Hargill House Caravan Club Site
We love this site as its so easy to get to many places of interest that we have after never ran out of . What makes it so nice is that it is so well run by Phil and Janet who give you as much help that you need or ask for or leave you to enjoy yourself. I wish we could find more site wardens like them. Having read some of the reviews that say strange things about them I cannot think we are talking about the same people. There is some noise at the top of the site but you become used to it as the day wears on so not really giving any problems unless you are a very very light sleeper. We have been to numerous sites this year when allowed and have found that our pitch had already been allocated understandable at the moment with what’s going on lets hope things can go back to normal soon. Again a lovely site to stay at and very well run…

A66 Day and Night

Richmond Hargill House Caravan Club Site
This was our first visit to this site, upon arrival I asked the warden if I could have a quiet pitch as I had seen the previous reviews, I was told I would hear the traffic noise no matter where we pitched up..as my allocated pitch had already been decided on the grass bank at the back of the A66, I’m afraid she didn’t even look on the booking chart to see what else was available as it turned out there were pitches away from the A66 available not good for customer relation/satisfaction. Please check your pitch allocation before booking if you are allowed the A66 at the back of the site is a 70mph dual carriageway which never lets up day or night it’s the main cross country trunking route not good for relaxing or sleeping unfortunately we shall not be returning.

Good site?

Richmond Hargill House Caravan Club Site
Contrary to a previous review, Phil and Janet are not interested in good relations with their visitors. Driving tractors and making up arbitrary rules is more in their line. The Caravan Club needs to review its staff selection procedures. The site, being alongside the A66 can be noisy from 06.00 onwards so choose your pitch carefully, if you are allowed. As a stopping off point on a longer journey, the site is fine but probably not as a centre for a longer stay.

Excellent site

Richmond Hargill House Caravan Club Site
A lovely site with great views of the surrounding countryside. The facilities are very clean and very well managed. Janet and Phil are very welcoming and pleasant and nothing is too much trouble for them. They are doing an excellent job in difficult times - keep it up :)
