Boroughbridge Camping and Caravanning Club Site is a beautiful site located close to the A1(M) motorway in North Yorkshire. Our park is open throughout the year, and serves as a popular location for those enjoying short stays before travelling onto another part of the United Kingdom, as well as with people who want to come and experience our North Yorkshire caravan park and stay for longer to take in the surrounding area and experiences available.
We welcome tents, touring campervans, and motorhomes onto our site, with electric hook-ups and Wi-Fi internet available for all to use during their stay, while there are also laundry, washing up, and chemical waste disposal facilities within the park. Our park is family and pet friendly, there is a club house to keep the children entertained while access to the North Yorkshire countryside is perfect for pets, and our location on the banks of the River Ure means we are a popular park for tourists who enjoy fishing, sailing, and riverside walks and picnics.
The town of Boroughbridge is just a short country walk from our site, and it has everything you will need to make your stay a happy and comfortable one. It is a unique mix of old and new; the town itself is old, but there is also the presence of supermarket and popular modern chain shops, so you can buy, eat, and drink according to your own tastes. The independently run public houses with their range of local produce and ales are something not to be missed in the area.
Most of the walking routes that branch out from the site involve sticking to the banks of the river, and the city of Ripon, which has a beautiful cathedral among many other great buildings,can be reached by following the Ure to the west and north. Studley Royal National Trust – a UNESCO World Heritage Site – is close to the park and a place worth exploring.
If you want to travel out further to explore the nature of the area, the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors National Parks are both a short car journey away. Those who want to find a town can lose themselves exploring the old city of York, famous for its Minster, being home to the National Railway Museum, and medieval castle and city walls that still stand today. Further architecture can be viewed in the Georgian town of Harrogate, while further south Leeds is a great place to shop and enjoy the city centre attractions.

The old town of Boroughbridge us a short walk from the site, with a supermarket, specialist shops, pubs, restaurants and takeaways. Further afield you can explore the lovely city of York, with its Minster, Jorvik Viking Centre and National Railway Museum, the cathedral city of Ripon and the Georgian architecture of Harrogate.
There are a number of good circular walks from the site, and you can walk to Ripon along the river and canal. Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal National Trust World Heritage Site is nearby, along with Newby Hall house and gardens near Ripon. The latter also has an adventure garden for children and there is also a theme park, shopping village and Bird of Prey Centre all at Lightwater Valley.

A really good well spread out site that's not far from the A1M. Split in to 3 sections the site can accommodate a fair few units plus the bonus of a massive playing field for the kids to run around. We could still hear the traffic at night, but it was easily tuned out and didn't disturb or bother us. The only issues we found were down to other people on the site, not flushing loos, leaving dirty underwear on the shower block floor, but they were dealt with by the on site staff, especially in the case of the latter. Also with the number of kids on the site I would have thought that people would adhere to the 5mph limit, but we spotted several vehicles flying around with disregard to the safety of others, which on occasion could have been dangerous. However, saying that we did have a great time llama trekking at Nidderdale Llamas www.nidderdalellamas.org and a visit to Stockeld Park near Wetherby.
