One of the prettiest sites on the network, part of the Bolton Abbey estate, in an open glade surrounded by woodland and the glorious Yorkshire Dales. Within the boundaries of the estate are some 75 miles of footpaths through moors, woods and farmland. Painted by Turner and Landseer, praised by Wordsworth and grazed by sheep, the ruins of the 12th century Bolton Priory stand on a placid curve of the River Wharfe. Nearby Skipton (8½m), an historic town with cobbled streets and canal, has a regular street market, a well preserved medieval fortress and is also the starting point of one of England's most beautiful train journeys, the Settle to Carlisle line.

Stayed here for a family wedding, Wardens were fantastic & friendly, site was immaculate especially the toilet block, ideal for a quiet, get away from it all break as there is no mobile phone signal, looking forward to a chance to return to try some of the walks that are accessible directly from the site
Lovely wooded location on the bank of the river Strid. Great walks - although heed the warnings that the river can be dangerous in parts and keep the kids in sight.
Lovely tourist area for outdoor lovers - walks, pretty villages, Bolton Abbey etc.
Expensive car parks!!!
