Moorcock Hall Farm

Great site although not the biggest we’ve been on but adequate for 5 pitches, sunset was amazing, some road noise as right next to the road but you soon get used to it, what’s not to like for £8 a night?
Well cut grass with an easy access off the main road made arrival a doddle. Some road noise during the day as village residents went about their business but a perfect nights sleep was had. No large trees or buildings to spoil the glorious sunset. Fresh potable and water for cleaning your cassette along with a shute for you cassette waste. Plenty of bins for segregated waste. Good location for cycling to Ripley and Knaresborough. Enjoyed it so much I've booked again.
We have just returned home from 2 nights at Moorcock Hall Farm. We only ended up here by chance as another CL in the same village wasn’t what we expected when we arrived so this was a hastily arranged alternative, what a lovely surprise! It has no facilities and no ehu, but does have fantastic views and cows and their calves in the next field. The owner/farmer is a lovely gent as is his mum who took the booking. The field is narrow but fairly level with plenty of room for 5 vans. It is next to a main(ish) road but there is minimal noise at night time. It’s situated in the same village as the Knaresborough club site and therefore is within walking distance of the town itself although we only ventured as far as the Nidd Gorge (could spend hours wondering round) and the Guy Fawkes Arms, 2 minutes down the hill from the CL. We enjoyed it so much we’ve booked to return in 2 weeks, well at £8 a night, why wouldn’t you!!!
Just got back from a weekend at this CL. OK there is no electric, who needs it - the field is a little uneven, we've got levelling blocks and there is road noise through the day so what!!........the views are brilliant, the owner is friendly and the Guys Fawkes Inn down the road is excellent. A visit to Knaresborough and the Nidd Gorge are both not to be missed.....all this for only £6.00 per night.....four words sum this up.......we will be back
For visiting Knaresborough and the surrounding area, look no further than this lovely CL, with great views and walking. Very friendly owner local pub requires booking, we left it too late!
Good site easy to access with lovely views over open countryside. Close to the attractions of the southern part of the Yorkshire dales with plenty of sights to see. The nidd gorge is on the doorstep and beautiful to walk in. Extremely friendly owner, and pub in the village does very nice food.(but you may need to book it's very popular ) The site is situated on a minor rd which is very busy at certain times of day, our only complaint would be the road noise although it was mainly at rush hours, at certain times it was peaceful.
A very basic CL but in a lovely area. plenty of walking in the area, don't miss the Nidd gorge, it's a beautiful wooded nature reserve run by the woodlands trust and only a short walk from the site. I have just spent four nights there and would have loved to make it a week. AT £6 a night it's a bargain, I have payed a lot more for far worse sites
A nice site with pitches in a line against the fence with a warm welcome from the owner. Reasonably quite, although adjacent to a minor road I didn't find the noise too obtrusive, but I was only there for 1 night. The best thing about this CL is the price, just £6 per night.
I stayed for 2 nights with my motorhome on a hard standing area, the other 4 plots are on grass. Good views to the front of site over a field with grazing cattle, the ground level falls away from the site so good views of the farmhouse distant fields is also possible. Although on a working farm none of the usual farmyard aroma or frantic activity of machinery, it is only a thick hedge away from the road so expect some traffic noise if sitting outside, I was not disturbed by road noise through either night. Service points adequate.
