Late season visit

We have been to this site many times in our 40 seasons of membership and all have been very satisfactory. We were lucky on this visit as it was very quiet, the weather nor brilliant but being hard standings, no problem. The improvements done to the site since our last visit are very good and we enjoyed our visit. Yes there is a bit of noise from the A66 that runs at the back of the site but we never really notice it. The only comment I would make, and the reason I only put a 3star for the Families is that there is not a lot for youngsters to do, ball playing field is provided etc. but not a lot more. As previously stated we like it as it is easy to get too and give easy access to the various Yorkshire Dales. We will be going again.

Excellent site

We had just collected a new (our 1st) motorhome and booked Richmond Hargill site for an overnight stop on our journey home. The site is very easy to get to and is very close to the A66. While there is some road noise it did not bother us at all. The toilet and showering facilities are excellent. Very clean and warm (We visited at the end of October), and the owners had thought of everything. The other facilities were also very clean and easy to access. The staff were friendly and accommodating. We would definitely use this site again but perhaps stay for longer as it is in a beautiful location.

Fabulous site with one small drawback...

We spent 11 nights here in early September. Occasionally sunny, occasionally rainy, often windy. but all in all very peaceful. We were offered a pitch below the toilet block, so reasonably far from the A66; there was some road noise, but not intrusive, and we got used to it, so I think it would not be too much of a problem even in summer. The pitches at the top of the site might be more aware of it... We were easily able to compensate for the slope of our pitch with our Lock 'n' Level, but it might be harder in places. The site is immaculate, and the toilet blocks positively gleam! Facilities are good, and although we had no children with us, I have given 5 for the Families rating as there is a separate section for ball games. In any case, there is much to do in the area, it would not be hard to find activities! A good variety of shops in Richmond, and a large supermarket is to be found a little further in Catterick, accessible via local roads. The wardens were friendly and helpful, as we have always found on CAMC sites. Above all, the views from the site are inspiring, with Swaledale and Wensleydale easily accessible. If you are looking for an overnight stop, it couldn't be bettered (about 2 miles from Scotch Corner), and for our autumn break it was perfect.

Too good to be just a stopover

We spent just one night here on our way home from Scotland and it was not long enough to appreciate all it has to offer. On arrival I found the staff to be helpful and polite and even though there only a couple of pitches left we were advised on the pros and cons of each. The site is clean, well presented and the toilet block was immaculate, the only down side is the rather severe slope, my levelling ramps are 100mm and I could have done with at least double. All things considered I would have no reservations in visiting this site again.

Road noise

This is a very nice site and the wardens are very friendly and helpful. We used it as a 3 night stopover on the way up to Northumberland. The only criticism was the amount off traffic noise from the A66

First visit

First time visiting this site. Arrived early evening and the very helpful and friendly warden told us the only pitch free that wasn't next to the road was a grass pitch in the centre of the site. Pitched fine but very sloping, as are many of the pitches. Even from the middle of the site the road noise was constant, not particularly intrusive but constant however I would imagine the pitches at the top of the site adjacent to the A66 would really struggle with it. Facilities were first class, spotless and the site in general was extremely well kept. A 5-10 minute drive takes you into Richmond which is lovely. We would return to this site but only for a stopover or if we could guarantee a pitch at the bottom of the site.

First ever trip

We picked Hargill House for our first ever caravanning trip as it's right off the A66 and no country roads to encounter! We'd hoped for hardstanding but there weren't any left by the time we arrived - so we chose a grass pitch (no. 4) right next to the A66. We were a bit apprehensive about the traffic noise as it is constant even through the night - but by the second day we'd gotten used to it and it didn't trouble us. The grass pitch did have quite a slope so you will need chocks etc. to get level - but lovely south facing views once you're sorted. The toilet, shower and dishwashing facilities were immaculate and the bins and chemical toilet point were always clean and tidy. The whole site was extremely well maintained and I can understand the wardens being protective where it comes to driving all over the grass - they should be proud of their hard work. All four wardens were friendly and helpful on arrival - and Colin especially came to our rescue when our electric cable stopped working. We felt like we were in safe hands, given lots of advice and thoroughly enjoyed our trip.

No problems

It is a clean and tidy site. The facilities are well laid out and easy to access. The showers and toilets are clean modern and warm, although my partner complained about the fact that the ladies is situated at the back of the block while the men's are at the front. We only stayed the one night, as it was a convenient stop over on our trip back from Scotland to London. Some people have mentioned the traffic noise from the nearby A66, but I didn't notice it. Our pitch wasn't completely level, but it wasn't bad enough for me to get the levelling ramps out. The Angel, in the village about a fifteen minute walk (longer on the way back because it is uphill) serves decent food and drink. I would come back and would recommend the site as a good stop over on the way north.

A nice site with helpful and friendly wardens

A lovely site with stunning views. There is traffic noise from the A66 however that is what it is. The site was pristine and the Wardens excellent- helpful and friendly. There were a few yappy dogs around but again not something the site can control. The local information was good and there is lots to see in close proximity. If anything CAMC could spend a bit of money on grading and levelling the grass pitches A lovely visit and well worth a return trip
