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.

Good, but pitches need modernising.

The site is located in rolling hills to the north of Skipton. Woods surround the site which is immaculate. The toilet block had limited access when we visited. The Wifi signal was good but TV reception was very poor and we purchased a TV lead to get BBC channels. Skipton has several large supermarkets, Grassington has small shops and cafes. We visited Skipton main street, the market and had a canal walk. We had a day trip to Brimham rocks and were lucky to see a large stag and hind. A great experience! The quarry at Coldstones Cut was amazing and our very own Grand Canyon. The site pitches sloped in every direction possible. It would only take a short time to use a digger and a spirit level to improve and modernise this site.

Quiet, pleasant and big skies.

We've just returned from 2 very pleasant nights at the Wharfedale Club Site (April 2021). The site is very well maintained and surprisingly quiet with friendly wardens and I was struck by how wide the vista is situated to the side of a large, glaciated valley. It's a 40m stroll into across the River Wharfe into Grassington which is a picturesque little town with a good selection of pubs and cafes. Nearer is Threshfield, the SPA has a local butcher's outlet and a good collection of very BBQable meats. We enjoyed the walks around the site and up to the old quarry just behind the vans and the old lime kiln. Getting there is a doddle with the Aire Valley motorway and the Skipton bypass. We'll look forward to returning.

Quality wardens on a well-located, clean site

Our third trip. Took a wrong turn and had used the ‘don’t use’ route past Bolton Abbey!! Horrendous, so don’t do what we did and go via Skipton!! Very warm, well organised welcome on arrival. One warden welcomed and then explained arrangements to my wife whilst I checked in at the office. First impressions, very good. Discovered some of the pitches are on a slight incline and our inexperience meant we struggled getting the hitch off. However, a very patient but helpful chap helped. Then, I struggled levelling. Thankfully, one of the wardens was doing what we later saw was a fairly regular tour round the site by wardens. Once again, helped us sort what was more a difficulty caused by our inexperience in ‘managing’ the jockey wheel! Toilet Block clean, great showers, good dishwashing room (although I had thought they had space and could have opened two rather than the single sinks), well maintained service points. Didn’t do any significant walks - dodgy legs and dodgier weather - but spoke to several who spoke highly of the variety of nearby walks. Terrific Spar and Garage 5 mins drive away. Butcher in shop. Grassington just a few mins. Further. Had excellent Sunday Lunch in The Devonshire (covid safe arrangements were very evident) and take away Fish and Chips from the chippy across the road although these were a tad disappointing. We’ll return to this site - but probably in the Summer!

One if the three top Dales sites.

Each of the 3 sites in the Yorkshire Dales has it's own character and charm. this site is beautifully maintained by the very attentive staff and is ideally located for exploring the areas of Wharfedale from Skipton to Buckden and also Littondale and mapow Malhamdale. Superb walking whatever the weather. Nearest town is Grassington (All Creatures great and small - new series - Darrowby). Always a pleasure to stay on this little gem of a site.

Just lovely

Second visit to this site and it won’t be our last. Beautiful surroundings and spotlessly clean site. Short walk to Grassington. Can’t fault it and would strongly recommend.
