Why stay here ...

Wharfedale Club site is now open following significant redevelopment. We've carried out many exciting improvements including a complete refurbishment of the toilet and shower facilities, replacement of all service points and repairs to the road. We look forward to welcoming you on site soon.

Set in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, Wharfedale Club Site is screened from the outside world with stately trees and offers a rich variety of wildlife. Its two fields are divided by dry stone walls, which are very characteristic of this area. Situated in this loveliest of National Parks, the caravan site has excellent facilities, which were redeveloped in 2017. There are numerous walking pathsfrom which you can explore the splendid surrounding countryside, and plenty of dog-friendly walks nearby.

Wharfedale Club Site puts you within easy reach of Grassington, one of the most picturesque villages in the Yorkshire Dales. With its charming cobbled main street, comprehensive Information Centre and a good selection of shops selling local specialities, you will find more than enough for a fun family outing. There are also numerous pubs serving some fine Yorkshire Ales and some delicious home-cooked treats to be had. Prior to Christmas, Grassington holds a series of Dickensian Days on Saturdays throughout December, making this North Yorkshire caravan park the perfect destination for a festive holiday break. You can also enjoy a walk into Burnsall village which boasts a beautiful riverside location.

Lovely Dickension Market venue

We booked the site as we have done previously to go to the Dickensian market at Grassington. Arriving on site on the Friday 29th November we had a pleasant chat with the lady on reception and booked in with no fuss. Its a lovely site and the facilities are very modern. We then drove round to chose a pitch and saw a filling up point with tap labelled clean water. Having started to fill the tank with a hose we were amazed when a very rude member of staff dressed in Dickensian costume came bounding up shouting 'you can't fill up here' in a very non friendly manner. My wife looked horrified. 'Why not' says I? 'Because you are blocking the road for other users' says the ever more rude and threatening man. I was dumbfounded. What customer service skills training had he had? He then walked off shouting 'you should know better' having upset me and my wife and to the amazement of other people watching. Just then a large motorhome passed ours with ease continuing to drive by on the roadway....no problem there. We drove round to a pitch and filled our van via the same fresh water tap filling point with our container not the hose. There was nothing at the filling up point to say hoses could not be used. So thank you to this employee. You ruined our weekend by your attitude. Perhaps you should talk to people as you would like to be spoken to. Not with the rudeness you showed to us. A friendly manner and discussion would have been a far better tack. Merry Christmas!

Only Short Stay!

Only a short 1 night stay whilst visiting attraction in local area but will be returning for a longer stay in the future. Helpful friendly wardens, fantastic dog walk from site, spotless and plentiful facilities and well maintained site all made the stay perfect. Will be returning to take advantage of the local area for walking and visitor attractions.

Super

Just had a fortnight here in November. Superb walking opportunities and transport links from Grassington. The amenities blocks were spotless and the staff could not not have been more helpful. I can't wait to return in the summer.

Caravan and Motor-home Club at its best.

This site at Wharfedale has to be one of the best. The staff are always so very good and helpful and keep the facilities in such good order. The lay-out of the site is extremely good and also very dog friendly with excellent walking areas nearby. The village of Grassington, a short walk away is a gem. If fishing is your sport then the wonders of the River Wharfe await your pleasure.The site is also very well located for visits to the many towns and villages situated in this part of North Yorkshire.
