Why stay here ...

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

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.

We look forward to welcoming you on site soon.

Wharfedale Caravan Club Site
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Wharfedale and wish we could have stayed longer. Great site for accessing walks and plenty to do and see in the area. Bolton Abbey and Malham Cove are a must and the walk from Grassington to Burnsal was wonderful. We would recommend the Cock and Bottle in Skipton for a meal. The facilities on site were spotlessly clean and we enjoyed the peace and quiet and the daily visit of a few ducks every day.

Top Notch

Wharfedale Caravan Club Site
Second time we’ve stayed here and I’ve already booked for next year. Can never get more than two nights it’s so popular but I can see why. The facilities are the best I’ve used so far with everything you need plus exceptionally clean. The wardens are extremely friendly and so very knowledgeable and helpful. Peter in particular. This is the gateway to lots of country walking right from the site and with Grassington and Linton also not far away, there are more pubs and things to see and do. The local Spar is also 10/15 mins walk away and it was very well stocked up so, if you forget anything, not a problem. There’s even a large fridge stocking meats and veggie things for the barbecue etc…. This time we went over to the local pub which is well worth a visit and just a short stroll away on the adjacent static caravan site. Food, service and ambience was great. The only problem we had this time was getting a TV signal and that’s what you get if parking up in the quiet corner. All was solved by purchasing a booster cable from the office. See you all again next year if not before.

Absolutely spot on!

Wharfedale Caravan Club Site
We had a welcoming party of 3 staff to greet us!! Very friendly and lots of suggestions to make sure we were pitched OK. We had the choice of any "white" pitch we fancied which was good. Security good with barriers and customers given electronic fobs to use. Shower block very clean, well set out site. Atmosphere throughout site was laid back, relaxed. Short walk to Gamekeepers Inn at Long Ashes static site next door, also a leisure club there which you can pre-book a 4 hour slot for. Good advice given about taking the dog walk footpath to save time walking to Grassington. We'd come again, absolutely!

Our first but certainly not our last visit

Wharfedale Caravan Club Site
This was our first visit to the area in general and Wharfedale CC site. We found the area stunning with lots of easy walks right off the site itself. There is a Spar shop about a 10 minutes walk away. We really enjoyed our visits to Kettlewell, Burnsall and of course the village of Grassington, perhaps known as Darrowby in the TV series all Creatures Great and Small. We were very impressed with the site, its cleanliness and the friendly and helpful staff. The facilities on site are beautifully kept. On arrival we received a warm welcome and lots of information, you can also buy from the little shop on site a very useful little waterproof map (£4.00) that identifies all the walks in the area and small local roads. There are a number of pubs within walking distant of the site, The Gamekeeper pub is right next to the site and The Old Hall is just a 15 minute walk away. We particularly enjoyed the Red Lion at Burnsall, a delightful pub set in beautiful surroundings overlooking the river. You can walk here following the river from Grassington or alternately a short drive of 3 miles. I must admit we did fall foul of club rules by parking our caravan slightly off the white peg. I was visited by a member of staff who explained in a perfectly reasonable manner why I needed to move my caravan 2 foot nearer to the white peg. I understood the reasoning when it was explained to me. I also have to admit we are new to caravanning so everyday is a school day for us at the moment. Thanks to the staff on site we will certainly return here in the near future. we thoroughly enjoyed our 4 day stay and will certainly be returning and this time I will park on the white peg. Thanks once again to all the staff at Wharfedale CC, we had a great time Roy and Val

A Top site in a top Countryside location

Wharfedale Caravan Club Site
A very well run site. Spotlessly clean and well maintained. Staff very polite and efficient. There are some superb walks (in all directions - up to 10 miles). A very good base to walk, cycle or explore.
