Our best CL

Easy to find, nice and peaceful, reasonably level, good toilet waste disposal point. Both owners are friendly, welcoming and helpful.  We had to have work done on our 'van on site and Ann offered to dispose of several large cardboard boxes for us - much appreciated. Info pack very useful and events noted on CC web page also very useful - visited steam rally and Hardraw Brass Band contest thanks to this info - brilliant! We would recommend and visit again. Just for info - we travelled up the M6 and crossed from junction 37, and found this route narrow and difficult in places and  would recommend approaching from the A1M!

A Fine Cl but.....

The site is in a paddock adjacent to the house, with a wide entrance and 6 pitches, 2 of with have hard standing runs. There are extensive views over to Witton Fell above Middleham. The site is easily access off the Leyburn to Richmond road about a mile down a quiet lane. There area couple of footpaths close by leading to Leyburn and Bellerby, where there is a pub that does evening meals. The lanes in the area are popular with cyclists and anyone wishing to ride off road there are a few bridalways and tracks on Redmire Moor. There is a Aldi and a Tesco at Catterick Garrison about 6 mls away. There are many places of interest nearby, including Castle Bolton,  Middleham Castle, Jervaulx Abbey and Kiplin Hall near Catterick is a must. The "But" is that when we were stayed there were 6 vans on site for most of the week. Please don't spoil the site by ignoring the rules, please.

Third Visit

This is one of those sites we keep going back to. Anne and Dave are perfect hosts, the site is secluded with very little traffic on the access road and takes the sun all day, (weather of course permitting) and facilities are of a high standard. All areas of the Dales are easily accessible and Leyburn is a couple of minutes drive away. The site is easy to reach from the A1. Its our favourite CL !

Good choice

This was a good choice of CL. Everything very clean and tidy. The maps and leaflets provided by Ann very useful. The location perfect for the many lovely villages and walks nearby.  We will definitely visit again.

Lovely CL

CL as it should be. Bit damp but owner went out of his way to sort us out when we got bogged down. Most friendly owners we have met in a long time.

Excellent CL

We stayed at Ellengarth in cold, wet and windy March but encountered a warm welcome. The CL is well set up and extremely well cared for - one of the best that we have visited. It is well situated to explore Swaledale and Wensleydale as well as eastwards beyond the Dales National park. Leyburn is close by. We will definitely return and recommend the site to our friends.
