Moo. Baaa. If you can stop your other half from nattering, these might be the only sounds you hear at lush and hushful Usha Gap Campsite in North Yorkshire. This peaceful place is on a working sheep and cattle farm in the Swaledale Valley, and has campers flocking to it for its calmness and its warm welcome by Philip and Louise, whose family have been farming this land for over 70 years. We think you’ll be mooved too by the views of the surrounding valleys and hills: just have a look at the Usha Gap gallery pics.
The grass pitches at Usha Gap are in two separate areas on the farm, one in a small field next to the beck (see pic 1) and the other in a bigger field beside the farm and looking over Kisdon Hill; Facilities are basic but clean, and include hot showers, loos and a washing-up area. Barbecues and campfires are allowed.
Although Usha Gap is in a shushful location, there’s plenty to rush to around it: walks including the Pennine Way and the Coast to Coast are close by, and the farm is only half a mile from two villages, Muker and Thwaite. Muker has the Farmers Arms pub (‘muddy boots, dogs and families welcome’), and a village shop and tearoom; Thwaite the Kearton Country Hotel with coffee lounge, pub and restaurant. The nearest market town is Hawes, six miles away, and there’s a farm shop within walking distance.
