Managed by the Club on behalf of the owners and set within the hollow of a disused quarry, now overrun with wild flowers and mosses, this site offers charming pitching areas with different aspects. Ducks and rabbits roam the site freely. There is a separate area on site for tent campers. Nearby Leyburn is a thriving market town with a bustling market each Friday and regular antique sales.
Apart from the many interesting attractions nearby, this is wonderful walking country so don't forget to pack your walking boots!

STUNNING! The approach road is narrow and steep in places but stick to arrival/leaving times and there shouldn't be any problems. The toilet block is faultless, (you can't really go wrong with the Caravan Club!) Once we arrived we were met by the most tame wild duck and ducklings we have ever come across. The children, (and us big kids!) were amazed as the ate from our hands. The site is set in a disused quarry and its such a beautiful and tranquil place to stay. Once we got set up, fed and watered, we sat back and enjoyed the arial show of the local bats. IT WAS LOVELY! While there we visited the Forbidden Corner. This is a must for everyone who has a heartbeat! You have to pre-book your ticket, (this can be done in Leyburn town, about half a mile from site, or telephone direct, please see www.theforbiddencorner.co.uk)
Also, not far from site is the Teapottery, (www.teapottery.co.uk) and the little choclate shop, (www.thelittlechocolateshop.co.uk)
Both places are great and it would be a shame to miss them.
The Yorkshire Dales is a wonderful place to visit and there are far too many places to see and things to for me to list them here. But what I can tell you is we came home happier people and some of that credit has to go to the site.
