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.

Pristine facilities and excellent wifi

Richmond Hargill House Caravan Club Site
Stayed here for our last trip of this year, mid to late October. Some previous comments about road noise, yes there is some but it didn’t impact onto our stay. Superb views from the site when the weather permits! Excellent area for walking, however you do need a car to get to the walks. The toilet facilities are the best we have ever used on any site, they are pristine!! There is also wifi that actually works! The first reliable wifi so far this year!

A favourite site for loads.

Richmond Hargill House Caravan Club Site
This site is one of our favourite sites to go and we have been to lots. What makes it even better is the very helpful wardens who if you ask will do their utmost to help in any way they can. The plates to go from here are loads just need to ask wardens they are very informative on where is good to eat places and where to go to see things you should not miss while in this area …. Very well run site. A Dixon

Nice stopover on way to Scotland

Richmond Hargill House Caravan Club Site
We've stayed at this campsite a few times over the years as it is a convenient stopover for us on the way to Scotland. The site was pretty full by the time we arrived at 6pm on a Friday with only grass pitches available and the ones that run head to tail up to the toilet block. The warden followed us to our pitch to make sure we were happy and comfortable with our pitch which was level. It seemed a little limited on space compared to others but as it was only a quick stopover we were happy with the convenience of the pitch. The warden was very helpful and chatty about our travel plans with recommendations for the local area. We had already booked into the Black Swan and decided to walk into the village, with a steep walk back!

Nice site ideal for stop over and more

Richmond Hargill House Caravan Club Site
Stayed at Richmond site to and from a Scottish tour. The site was very full on our outward stop Excellent clean facilities and pleasant friendly warden. We often stay in the Yorkshire Dales and would certainly consider staying here for a longer period in the future. As previous members note, the traffic noise from the A66 can be intrusive if pitched at the top of the site but further down there is no problem. Nice views over surrounding countryside.

Hargill House September 2021

Richmond Hargill House Caravan Club Site
We used this site as on overnight stop going to and returning from Norfolk. On the way down, there were only grass pitches left up the top of the site, and yes there was road noise from the A66, the positive was it was a 2 minute drive in the morning to get back onto the A66 to continue our journey. On the way back, the warden suggested that we use a non awning pitch, as that way we could get a pitch further down the site, what a difference, the road noise was only a faint rumble. Shower Block was really clean and there are lovely views to enjoy. Absolutely would stay here again as a stop over and next time will book a non awning pitch as we are there able to avoid the grass pitches at the top of the site.
