We booked Lower Wensleydale as we were invited to a wedding in Middleham and as travelling up from the South West thought we would make a holiday of our visit. I loved the site, trees, wildlife, peace and the different areas gave it an unusually private appearance. My wife felt the place a bit dark and dingy but perhaps that was because we had a pitch under the trees and didn’t see too much sun. Had a great 5 days visiting Leyburn, Aysgarth, Hawes, Middleham and Masham. Saw the Gallops and race horses in Middleham, waterfalls, great walks, Wensleydale cheese factory visit and a Theakstons Brewery visit. Didn’t like the walk to Leyburn as it’s a busy A road with narrow pavements but plenty of parking in town and lots of nice pubs. Facilities a bit dated but clean as a new pin, didn’t queue at all and plenty of hot water. No dog walk but found my dog enjoyed the walk up the hill behind the site, however it would be good to have a dog walk included within the site. Pitches are all shapes and sizes, we arrived Friday afternoon and it was quite busy & choice limited if you wanted an awning up. It was very dark over our stay and there isn’t much lighting around the place, even the hook up towers don’t have lights nor the service areas, problem my only tiny complaint, walking to the showers in the dark was a “challenge”. Still a great site, so quiet and peaceful and well maintained by the guys on duty. Leaf blowing for hours on end in the cold, rather them than me! Hope to return one day!
