Location – 4/5
It’s just off the road to Horton so you might expect some traffic noise, but non at all can be heard, perhaps the odd motorbike. Riverside location with nice surrounding walks. Two miles along the Ribble Way to Horton where there are pubs and cafés and of course the path to The Three Peaks. Four miles down stream is Stainforth and then further along is Settle with plenty of good amenities. An excellent base for anyone really!
You pay at a farmhouse by the field. The lady greeted me and showed me the toilet and cold water tap. She couldn’t have been anymore welcoming
Pitch – 4/5
I love being able to choose a spot so this scores highly. I bagged a flat area. I’ve marked it down slightly because the field was quite slopped! Also you can’t drive your car in. OK for most but might put off others who have lots of gear. No hook up but a number of campervans were using the pub car park to park over night.
Views – 3/5
Fantastic views of Penyghent. Behind is a limestone quarry but in it’s own way it’s quite attractive. Being in a tiny hamlet you are pretty much surrounded by green, lush fields. I’ve marked down because it’s in a valley so there are no elevated views.
Minimal from other campers but it’s by the Settle to Carlisle railway line. I’m not used to much noise so the trains that passed were noticeable. A freight train passed in the middle of the night. Various cars and trucks went up to the quarry fairly early on in the morning but nothing too bad!
Price – 5/5
£3 per night and no extra charges. I challenge you to find a cheaper site! Very dog friendly too.
Facilities – 5/5
For what you pay you get a toilet, cold water tap and being by the pub, hot meals and drinks whenever you want!
