Just stayed here for a long weekend Friday to Monday for the May bank holiday..
This was our second visit and on each occasion we have been given a pitch with electric hook up on the bottom field which is terraced, so affords wonderful views of the rolling hills and fields..
The site is family run and well maintained.. It is quite pricey tho, cost us £80 for 3 nights..
The toilet blocks and showers are a little tired and to charge that amount you would expect something a little more plush.. We don't mind paying the price if the bells and whistles are there..
The only toilet block that is reasonable is the one next to reception, the others are All a bit makeshift, 'sheds with showers'..
The location is the main selling point for us, that's what had brought us back here for a Second visit..
The site is situated between Barden bridge and appletreewick.. It is about a 10 minute walk until you are on the river walk along the river wharf, the dalesway.. Turn right and you can walk one mile to the craven arms at appletreewick or walk another mile and you're at burns all and the red lion.. Both selling gorgeous good and award winning ales..
Turn left on the river and in one mile you are at Barden bridge or in just under four miles you are at the gorgeous Bolton Abbey..
I would recommend this campsite to friends and family but would warn them about the price not reflecting the facilities..
Other than that it is a little gem of a campsite in a perfect location and setting..
