Littondale Country & Leisure Park is a beautiful family holiday retreat that's the perfect for holidays in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Situated in a tranquil rural valley in unspoilt countryside, this truly is an ideal destination for a relaxing break.

The site is open throughout the year so that you can enjoy this wonderful part of the country during all four seasons, each of which bring their own individual charm. Catch the summer sun, enjoy the changing countryside in spring and autumn, or snuggle up on a winter break - holidays in the Yorkshire Dales are unforgettable any time of year.

The area itself is ideal for those either looking to get away from it all or intent on tackling some of the best hiking and cycling that the country has to offer. Whether you want holidays in the Yorkshire Dales to be a relaxing escape from everyday life or a chance to get your blood pumping with an active break, this is a great location to do it.

The park is principally a sanctuary for those wishing to own a holiday home in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. However, the recent addition of luxury glamping pods and a small number of seasonal touring pitches has allowed rental visitors to also benefit from this stunning location.

Features and amenities found at the park include a children’s play area, laundrette, and the reception does stock a few essentials and ice-creams. All in all there's everything you need for your holidays in the Yorkshire Dales.

There is plenty to see and do during holidays in the Yorkshire Dales, so all you have to do is decide how you'd rather spend your time!

Be sure to spend some time strolling in the Yorkshire Dales, because there are miles of walks through breathtaking scenery. Some head out from the park itself, or pass close to Littondale Country & Leisure Park, with flat, gentle trails available, along with more challenging hikes across varying and hilly terrain. If you would prefer to get around by alternative means you can try mountain biking or horse riding in the Dales.

If you aren’t yet familiar with the area or are looking to spend time with other people enjoying holidays in the Yorkshire Dales, you can take advantage of guided walks, cycles, and horse rides across the local area. There is also the option of heading out and exploring without a guide, at your leisure. For many, an Ordnance Survey map is all they need to ensure they don’t get lost.

Many of the best walks are circular trails, with Littondale Country & Leisure Park sitting within the main routes. There are also plenty of walks that include sections alongside the River Skirfare, not far from here.

Outdoor lovers looking to enjoy other activities will find excellent golf courses across the Dales, with Bentham Golf Club one of the best, a short drive away on the northern edge of the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. To the west and close to the county border with Lancashire are numerous locations where you can try outdoor sports, from climbing and zip wiring to gorge walking and shooting. Holidays in the Yorkshire Dales are the perfect opportunity to try out something new.

There are some amazing villages and market towns within easy reach of Littondale Country & Leisure Park. Just a short drive away, you can visit Grassington, which has a great selection of shops and pubs. Just 10 miles to the south is Skipton, a historic town with markets four days a week, excellent shopping and restaurants, and a train station that you can use to reach Yorkshire and Lancashire.

There's countless things to do during your holidays in the Yorkshire Dales.

This park is in a beautiful location which is why we have given it 1 star. The other star was given for the pods which are of an excellent standard with TV heating microwave and even shower of sorts which is why we gave another star.
However the convenience store only supplies the most basic, and we mean basic items, long life milk, tinned soup, crisps and ice creams.The park is groomed well kept which is worth another star. The showers clean and tidy but not 5 star as claimed. The'yre communal which meant sending our young daughter in with older men. ( We used the disabled shower instead)There is an on park dispute between owners of static caravans who appear totally peeved off with the parks owners and the dreadful atmosphere as a result is palatable.

If you can get a cheap deal like we did its not bad, but if you pay glamping 5 star price well expect disappointment.

The pub along the road in Arncliffe is odd to say the least. Dont expect fine dinning.
Our electricity kept tripping out when we put the kettle on, but an onsite owner showed us how to reset it as there were no staff of an evening.

It is peaceful though so if you like that enjoy.

This has gone from a friendly site to a nightmare since Park Leisure have taken over. Sales Staff are continually being moved on but only after they have promised the earth and not delivered. The last 4 sales managers have said that park fees would not rise above 5%/year. They are now trying to increase fees 15% for the next 3 years! That's not 15% over the next 3 years but 15% every year for the next 3 years. That amounts to over 54%. The only thing Park Leisure are concerned with is the bottom line and how much money they can screw out of the customers. They continually spout that they are a 5 star site but if you ask anyone on site they would more likely give it 3 stars, and that would only be because of the outstanding position of the park within the boundaries of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Not only don't they care about the customers they seem to have a total disregard for the environment and the National Park. How anyone in their right mind would put yellow sandstone paving stones in an area of limestone escarpments and limestone dry stone walls beggars belief. They seem to think that all caravan parks should have a corporate look and have decided they should all look like seaside caravan parks. I shall certainly be writing to the National Parks to lodge my objections. I would definitely not be buying another caravan from Park Leisure and will never be recommend them. If I could give minus stars i would.
