Yorkshire Sites With Good Views

Recommended Posts

Can any of you guys recommend any sites in Yorkshire that have nice views of either countryside or coast from the pitches?

 

As our kids have now grown up, we prefer Adult Only sites, but not necessarily (Out of school holidays other sites are ok). Clubs and entertainment are not essential either.

(We are also C. Club members.)

 

Basically we're looking for somewhere that's fairly quiet, with good views of rolling countryside or a coastal view.

 

It would be nice if the site was close enough to walk to a country/village pub etc.

 

We've been to quite a few sites which were very nice, but the back window looks out on a hedge and the front window looks into our neighbours van over the way !

 

I know I'm looking for the "Perfect Site" which is a big Ask, but any recommendations would be gratefully received.

 

Cheers,

Hi,

Brown Moor at Hawes has views of the Dale and is close to the Town which is a 10 min walk,

Hiya Wilki. ..We have been visiting Yeomans Course at Easingwold page 488 CC book for the past ten years and views over vale of York are amazing.

 

Though on a bit of a slope you can easilly level up.

 

On a Good day you will see through to Emley Moor, 43 miles away. Village pub about 45 mins walk.

 

It has changed hands recently but that shouldn't cause any problems.

 

Happy camping.

Sorry for the thread revival, I just googled Ghyll Brow Cottage, and found this thread. I've just booked on this CL for the late May bank weekend.

 

Does anybody know what the railway line is, I gather from the above post it is a steam railway, but I don't know what organisation operates it. I want to see if there is anything going on for the bank holiday weekend.

 

Thanks

It is the Embsay and Bolton Abbey Steam Railway. Have a look at their website for further info on events and timetables etc. It is a very nice little line and I am sure you will like it.

Thanks Frank, the other half has said we can have a ride, so I'm happy! Looks like a busy little line with plenty going on.

Never ask a man if he comes from Yorkshire. If he does, he'll tell you. If he doesn't, why humiliate him?

Oh Dear Oh Dear, another disillusioned Lancastrian, still Rochdale isn't far from the right side of the Pennines :):)

 

To answer the OP, if the sites in Yorkshire, it will have good views, per say!

Of course, its never possible to have sites at the best sights, whatever the county.

Frankly I dont look for optimum scenery at the campsite.

Leaving the accommodation box and getting 'out there' is always preferable.

 

Besides - the best scenery sites are always the first to get fully booked. ..and a fully booked site is far worse than an empty one with inferior views. :)

For members of the CC there is the CL at High Easton Farm, Grindale Lane, Grindale nr Bridlington.

 

Extensive and uninterrupted views over Bridlington Bay, though as it is a farm site you will need to use a car to get anywhere. I cycle past the site regularly and can usually see 5 units in the field, so it would seem to be very popular.

Re Ghyll Brow Cottage - we went there a couple of years ago. Very small site, with the remains of a former water mill, but you can almost touch the steam trains - very exciting. They only run during the day, so noise is no problem. Just a couple of words of warning.

As you turn off the main road, there is a sign warning of a width restriction of 7' on that road. Our van is 7'6" wide and we had crossed the carriageway and were turning in before we noticed it!!! However, the site is just before the restriction. Also, the entry into the site is on a corner and a bit tight, you need to get a straight run into it. Don't be put off, it's perfectly possible, just a bit scary if you're not expecting it.

When we were there, there was a charge of I think 50p a night to hook into the TV cable. I think we only used it for one night. You will be parked on the north side of the house, so may not be able to get your satellite dish pointing where you need it. There are helpful little notices all over the site, and you will probably find a pitch with your name on it, and a very helpful owner.

Skipton is lovely, and has the best Wetherspoons we've been to for food. Tesco's and Morrisons are almost back to back not far from the town centre, and there's agood sized market most days. We will be up the road on a CL outside Ilkley for Spring Bank Holiday week at the end of May - another lovely town - and lovely shops!

 

Enjoy!

Mary

Thanks Mary

 

Very helpful information. That would explain why the first question he asked when I booked is if I was a twin axle!
