We visited Wood Nook in order to go to Grassington Dickens weekend, the site is very well placed to either walk into Grassington(half hour walk) or use the Park&Ride next to the site. Toilets and showers are fine with plenty of hot water. It snowed heavily on the first night which added to the magical spectical both on the site and at the Dickens weekend in Grassington. Snow and ice made getting about the park a little difficult but the owner was superb, pulling our 'van down to the exit lane on Sunday when we were leaving.
Will definitely go again.

This is such a wonderful site. My son is able to play, explore & enjoy the wildlife. The dog walk area is great...we can let the dogs burn off some energy whilst the coffee is brewing in the morning. It's a wonderful location for walks. The staff are very helpful & nice.
