First time camping for me so I don't have much to compare the site to however I stayed with well travelled campers who really liked the site and we all had a great time. The site was very clean and even though we experienced rain the shower and toilet blocks held up and didn't show too many signs of water and mud. It was quite quiet when we stayed with the field we were staying in only containing our 4 tents, a scattering of others and a camper van. The staff were very helpful and provided helpful hints on local points of interest and nice spots to pitch our tents.
Ideal for exploring the Yorkshire Dales area as its not far from Settle and there are waterfalls to see nearby too.
If you do go walking to the village in the evening its best to take a torch to get back as there are no streetlights or lamps on the campsite.
