This was a lovely site in a stunning area. We had a wonderful welcome from Ian, Christine and the 2 assistant wardens (sorry can't remember their names) they made us feel like part of a family.
The site was immaculate and unlike a lot of sites it didn't feel like a car park, with lots of nooks and crannies to park the caravans in. Gerald the peacock is very friendly and not put off by our very old golden retriever.
A previous reviwer said their was nothing for the children to do on site, well thats true but that is one of the things that makes the site special and after all why come here if you can't find enjoyment in the surroundings and educate the children on the ways of the Yorkshire countryside!
The Pheasant Inn on the main road as you turn into the track leading to the site, is very welcoming and dog friendly. A traditional old pub no food but a great Yorkshire welcome.
Leyburn is so pretty with lots of dog friendly cafes and pubs. Harmby falls was stunning due to the early rain we had had.
Wesnsleydale Creameries is a short car ride away while in Leyburn and only a short walk from the site is a chocolate factory and pottery making special teapots. A walk from the site up the hill and you will see the quarry which is a haven for wild life and filled with water, continue along the road across the fields and you will arrive in Leyburn where you have a rest in one of the dog friendly pubs etc.
Unfortunately our stay was cut short due to the closure of the site due to Covid-19, but the team made it feel as though they were very disappointed for as well as them.
A big clap of thank you because they have to remain there maintaining the site in case they get the all clear to reopen.
I hadn't realised that the staff at the site have to pay out of their own money for the sweets ice creams etc at the site shop. Christine and Ian are initially going to be out of pocket due to the closure if the shop doesn't reopen. So next time you are on site buy something and support the site staff. Thank you the magnums on our way home were really welcoming.
We certainly will be back. Thank you again.
