Why stay here ...

Great News - during winter 2020/21 we converted six grass pitches into hardstandings pitches, increasing the length and making them usable all year round.

Set in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, Wharfedale Club Campsite 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 Campsite 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.

Spring Visit April 2022

Wharfedale Club Campsite
Had a lovely 8 night stay here. Facilities spotless and not at all busy. Wardens very friendly. Handy for a 20 minute walk into Grassington. We particularly enjoyed a gentle stroll to Burnsall to visit the Red Lion for a beer and fish and chips. If you follow the river it is about 5 miles each way. The Spar and petrol station 10 minutes walk away is very well stocked at reasonable prices. My only gripe is way do members have to travel around the site so fast. Surely it’s not too much to adhere to the 5mph rule. Sometimes it seemed like Wacky Races with cars going so fast and caravans bouncing over the speed bumps behind them.

Fantastic site

Wharfedale Club Campsite
Great site and brilliant wardens plenty to do in the locality.The site is a credit to the wardens. However people do go too fast round the site in cars and bikes,whilst there children were going round like it was a velodrome,an accident waiting to happen in my own opinion

Lovely weekend stay

Wharfedale Club Campsite
We stayed with our child age 7 and had a great time at this site. The set up and pitches is as you would expect from C&MH - nice big pitches and spread apart. The toilets / showers were clean and seemed plenty for the site. Only critism would be the shower angle came right to the end of the cubicle and my shoes got wet first time but soon learnt from this. Also the shower spray was quite spread out so wasn't as powerful as I would of liked. There was a playground which my boy enjoyed visiting and making friends there. There is a footpath from the site taking you to the side of the Spar at Threshfield. And then onwards paths to Grassington. We did a good 10k round trip walk along the river playing on the stepping stones to enjoy cakes at the Old School tearoom in Hebdon. We ate at the Old Hall Inn which was nice, the closest one Game Keeper seems to get busy so try book ahead if you can.

Wonderful Wharfedale

Wharfedale Club Campsite
Absolutely wonderful site. Its one of our favourites and we make sure we have a couple of visits a year. Always immaculate facilities. Well kept site. Warm welcome from 2 new wardens when we arrived at 7pm. Beautifully located site, within an easy walk to the famous Dale's village of Grassington. Lovely cafes and pubs, quirky shops & book shop. Something for everyone. The Devonshire Arms of All Creatures Great & Small fame, complete with film set photos around the snug does a very tasty sunday lunch! Lovely walks to Linton Falls & Burnsall. We did the Burnsall walk this visit, stunning in spring with sparkling waterfalls,gorges,wild flowers, new lambs and plenty of bird and wildlife. We enjoyed watching mandarin ducks, dippers,goosanders and saw our first swallows of 2022 skimming the river! Our spaniel loves all the walks! Gorgeous area. If you haven't visited Wharfdale you must! Make some Yorkshire memories. Thankyou CMC.
