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 caravan site the perfect destination for a festive holiday break. You can also enjoy a walk into Burnsall village which boasts a beautiful riverside location.

Absolutely fantastic holiday!

This site is just lovely. Toilet shower facilities are spot on, staff friendly, super quiet, superb walks in every direction, excellent location for beautiful countryside and nearby attractions. Wildlife everywhere, nearby pubs. We spent 8 days here and could have easily stayed longer!

Excellent in almost all respects.........

On site at the start of July. Wardens could not be more friendly / helpful, and the site was kept beautifully. Yes, we agree that the layout is a little ' bland ', and possibly a little more landscaping would break things up, but that is not the fault of the wardens. Having read other reviews, I would also concur that people on site ( and not just this site ) are ignoring the speed rules - again nothing to do with the wardens. WHY do people have to break the rules - it may be their child that gets knocked down. As far as dogs are concerned, the rules say ' kept on a lead'. If you allow your dog off the lead you SHOULD expect a visit from the wardens. IF YOU DON'T LIKE THE RULES, DON'T JOIN THE CLUB. Having said my piece, I would not hesitate to recommend this site. The current team of wardens keep the site in pristine condition and there is plenty to see / do nearby. Moors are within an easy drive as is Skipton. Grassington is a lovely village and well worth a visit, as are Malham and Settle. Shopping and fuel available at the local Spar, with Tesco and Morrisons in Skipton ( 10 miles ) Thanks to the wardens for a very pleasant stay

Great location excellent staff

Stayed here for 4 night all the staff were excellent very efficient and very friendly. The site is immaculate from the pitch areas to the facilities with everything clearly laid out and easy to use. We walked in the local area from the site visiting Linton Falls, Grassington and Linton for a nice pint and meal in the fountain Inn. There is a Spar shop very near the site and I must say its the best Spar shop I've been in with a excellent fresh meat counter, fresh cakes, fruit and veg and you name it its got it. We got the bus just at the entrance to the site to Skipton Market and had a lovely day there. All in all a excellent stay

Excellent in most respects...

The good: Immaculately maintained by attentive wardens, generally peaceful and perfectly situated for exploring the Yorkshire Dales; The bad: a somewhat soulless site, rather car-park-like in regimented layout; The ugly: The number of drivers for whom “5mph” is an unknown concept... all the more disappointing in that pretty much the warden’s opening words upon arrival is a reminder of the site speed limit. Maybe Club Site visitors have short term memory issues as so many seem to treat the site as a racetrack... when they’re on hand to observe such actions the wardens do remind offending drivers that they’re not on a Grands Prix circuit but clearly the wardens are not on site as traffic officers. Regrettably Wharfedale Club Site is by no means exceptional in this regard; we have previously experienced exactly the same ignorant and/or irresponsible attitude to speeding at Park Coppice, Coniston - it’s something I’ve yet to see on a Club CL or on a Centre Rally so perhaps (although seemingly unlikely) the perpetrators are not Club members. So, great location, lovingly maintained, shame about the driving standards of a minority of visitors.

Fallen in love with the Dales.

Superb location, site expertly run and very friendly. Facilities are immaculate every day. The site lacks a little character, on site it feels a little bit like a caravan storage facility with lots of gravel and concrete which is completely out of place in this beautiful location. The wardens do their best to add character but it’s just the layout and number of pitches squished in. The wardens also seem to be fighting a losing battle with people driving well above the 5mph speed limit. We were advised by the team of the speed limit on arrival so not sure why people still feel the need to use the site as a race track. Many of the pitches are very close to the road on site so if you have small children I would be very wary.
