Why stay here ...

A popular site in North Yorkshire, Richmond Hargill House Club Campsite 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 Campsite 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.

Great wardens

Richmond Hargill House Club Campsite
Agree with earlier comments re easy access and road noise but felt I had to give 10 out of10 to the wonderful wardens here. We arrived, a bit stressed out as we were returning home early as hubby was ill and in a lot of pain, after a 235 miles drive and the wardens couldn't have been more caring and helpful. A total credit to any organisation and we are lucky to have them.

Excellent site for visiting the area.

Richmond Hargill House Club Campsite
The site is easy to get too and extremely clean. You will need ramps to level your unit as we were on pitch 36 and the site provided us with one as we left ours in the garage! The wardens were a credit to the club. It is not the most luscious and green site but it is easy to pitch up and has wide roads. It would be a good site for newbies. Two points to mention: 1. The main road is right next to the dog walk so be aware of this and it isn't very long but at least it is there. The road is very busy and therefore can be noisy. 2. My main gripe is the women's toilet door is the furthest away from the pitches and around a corner out of sight and surrounded by fencing. I personally did not feel very secure going to it on my own at night as you cannot be seen. I was not the only lady to say this.

Really nice, convenient site with a couple of downsides

Richmond Hargill House Club Campsite
A nice, friendly, well-run site with good big pitches and spotlessly clean. Wardens extremely helpful. Modern, clean toilet and shower facilities. Lovely views. Drive-over waste - good! Downsides? A66 noise particularly at the top of the site. Very limited dog walking from the site (although there is a small, fenced dog exercise area). Quite a way out of Richmond so no restaurants/pubs within walking distance. Ideal stop-over (exactly half way between our home in Scotland and our grandchildren in the south of England) and literally on the A66 but not, for us, a holiday destination site. We will definitely use the site again for stop-overs, it is that good. The dales are beautiful but for a longer stay we would choose a site more peaceful and better connected to shops, restaurants and other facilities without having to move our campervan each time.

Short stay

Richmond Hargill House Club Campsite
Booked this site at the last minute, arrived just before 1pm, Roger the site warden came and spoke to us, (very politely and about the 1pm booking in time) not a problem. On checking in we were informed of all the availability pitches, and if you want fairly level ones go into the horseshoe part. We found a lovely pitch No 32. Lovely views of the open countryside. There is a bus No29 that stops outside the site that will take you into Richmond, ( it doesn’t stop there on the return), you have to get a taxi back, (cost £11:90) unless you want to cross the A66 to get back to the site. Showers and the other facilities were spotless. The road noise from the A66, during the day, but it didn’t bother us during the night.

Praise

Richmond Hargill House Club Campsite
As nervous first timers we have nothing but praise for the warden here. I think his name was Roger and he was a relief warden. He could not have been more helpful to us, helping us reverse and set up, advising us about electrics and leisure battery. The place was spotless, the pitches were well laid out. Although it is near the busy A66 the traffic noise was not intrusive but might have been at the top of the site. There didn’t appear to be play facilities for children, but we don’t have any so didn’t take a lot of notice. The site is perfectly situated for visiting the Yorkshire dales or a stop over en route North or South. Very close to Catterick caravans and Ropers who have every accessory imaginable. We highly recommend this for couples in caravans who would enjoy exploring the Dales.
