Having just completed our 3rd visit to Bolton Abbey Estate Site in 4 years, all I can do is give you a 100% recommendation.
The warden staff are always friendly and helpful. The site is beautifully situated and the access to the Abbey Estate and walks along the River Wharfe is simple and an absolute must.
Bolton Abbey itself can be very busy at times but at the site you are beyond the issue and can leave the car parks there to those not staying close by!
Many of the reviews on here go into the beauty of the surroundings and detail things to do but all I would just like to say that this site has always delivered for us. Generally, quiet with regular visits from Peacocks and various species of ducks, along with a plethora of wild (albeit quite tame!) birds.
Beautiful walks are but a few minutes away and provide an absolute treasure trove of wildlife and natural beauty.
Whilst there is no designated play area (that I am aware of) for the younger visitors, the setting provides ample opportunity to fill their lungs with fresh air!
A beautiful part of the country, a lovely and well-run site, good pitches, and you really are at the gateway to the beauty in store of the Yorkshire Dales. As far as services go, Skipton is about 15 minutes away and you get everything you could possibly need there.
Will there be visits number 4, 5 and 6? I sincerely hope so!
Thanks to all, a marvellous site, location, and above all holidays.
