Dalesbridge Bunkhouses & Campsite
Reviewed April 12, 2011

We have just returned from another excellent weekend at Dalesbridge. Ovver the years I have stayed in the house on a B&B basis, camped and stayed in the four and six bedded bunkhouses.
Dalesbridge caters for the outdoor person, and this is also reflected in the B&B, so yes there may be a bit of dust and a lack of 'quality toiletries' in the shower room, but when we stayed we had a good nights sleep, in a decent ensuite room with an very large cooked breakfast.
The bunkhouses are, by bunkhouse, standard on the luxury side!! The 6 bunk rooms have a seating area, oven, microwave, toaster, kettle and an assortment of crockery and cutlery ( not always 6 of everything!). Yes there are cobwebs and the shower room is a little dated but the water is hot and the bunks are comfy. There are also picninc tables outside, so you can BBQ etc .
It can get a little noisy at times with traffic from the road and other groups can get rowdy but generally noise is kept to a minimum after 11pm.
There are showers and toilets also available on the camping field, which we occasionally use if there is a queue!!
If you dont fancy cooking, there is a pub in the nearby village - but is overpriced and the food wasn't very good last time we went. Settle is near enough and has pubs, cafes, Indian restaurants and fish n chip shops.
Dalesbridge is the ideal place for friends to have a good time together at a resonable cost. It is comparable in price to a Youth Hostel and at Dalesbridge you get your own toilet and cooking facilities!! The owners had no qualms about us 'dressing' up a bunk house for a '50' party and are friendly. The setting is perfect for the Yorkshire Dales with plenty of activities from the door, walking, show caves, biking.
Can't wait for our next visit.
PS - forgot - there is a bar on site as well.

Upon arrival we were warmly greeted by a nice lady, who upgraded us from our 4 bed bunk, to a 6 bed bunk with 'full self-catering facilities'.
It was very basic, as we expected, but the bottom sheets on the beds had not been changed, it looked like someone had just slept in them and spilt their hot chocolate! There was not enough mugs and cutlery for 4 people, nevermind 6! The shower room is a wet room style, so there is no floor dry once you have finished, so we used the campers showers (as was everyone else!), which were heated under floor which was nice. One morning we noticed that one of the shower gel dispensers had been broken off the wall (not by us!) and contents everywhere, and when we came back in the evening had not been fixed or cleaned. Therefore had ANY of the showers been cleaned? Plenty of free hot water.
Picnic tables outside came in usefull for bbq-ing.
No probs with noise, even though there was a mini-bus of youths next-door-but-one and about 15 youths camping.
Bunkhouse was warm enough, large beds. Lots of cobwebs. Could do with a thorough clean.
Camping field looked very level, although hard under foot.
I would come back again, even though basic, as it is comfier and warmer than camping. You get what you pay for!
