General

  • With a pub overlooking the pool and the playground
  • Excellent views and immaculately maintained grounds
  • On-site 18-hole golf course

Oh, we’re all in a whirl. Not only does Rudding Holiday Park have a helipad for those who might like to pretend they’re Bond, James Bond, but its setting in the grounds of Rudding Park Hotel means you’ll be having a hol in the lap of luxury – even if you’re only bringing your natty old tent.

The grounds of this 50-acre park are whirly special, with a heated outdoor pool (charge applies), playground for little flyers and the Deer House pub; cleverly, the pub overlooks both the pool and the playground, and has a games room inside for competitive and/or rainy days. When having a wander, there are gorgeous gardens and woodland, splendiferous views and immaculately maintained grounds: Rudding Holiday Park is a previous winner of the AA 'Best Campsite in Britain' award and the friendly team keep facilities to the highest standards.

Park guests are welcome to hover around the hotel facilities too when landing at Rudding: there’s a spa, smart Clocktower restaurant with terrace and conservatory, and – our fave – a private 14-seat cinema to hire for parties or just because. Those seeking (whirly) birdies can take their teeing-off pick from the on-site 18-hole golf course, Repton Short Course, or golf driving range and academy.

All guests have access to the park’s two shower and loo blocks with free hot water and electric points for hairdryers and shavers; there's a launderette too, with coin washing machines and tumble dryers, an iron and ironing boards.

When taking flight off site, Rudding Holiday Park is minutes away from the A1 motorway to get to most of Yorkshire’s highlights, and it’s only two and a half miles from hanging out in Harrogate. Get to the chopper…

Please note

All customers: access to the swimming pool is not included in the rate and is charged £4.25 per person per 90-minute session.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Single-sex bookings of 3 or more people (couples and immediate family members excepted) are not permitted via Pitchup.com.

The outdoor swimming pool is open between 25/05 and 31/08 (subject to weather conditions).

    Situation of the site ( only A short drive from Rudding town) clean facilities ,

    Disliked: 

    We had a nice time apart from when we went out for dinner on the Saturday evening in the family bar on site with our grandchildren.
    Hen party with (adult toys) we had to go back to the van ( terrible disgusting never ever again ).
    Advised management on Monday
    Management say their looked on video but cannot see very much , really don't seem too interested .

From the manager...

Dear Wendy
We're so pleased that you liked the location of our park, but so disappointed you chose to post this review.
The Deerhouse pub located on our holiday park is open to the public, and on the Saturday you dined with us we were holding a PJ party. We were serving food up to 9.00pm and our entertainment started about 9.30pm. Yes, we did have parties booked with us, including a group of ladies, one of whom we found out was getting married. They most certainly did not have any sex toys with them!
We did take your complaint seriously, and responded to your email, and phone calls. We spoke to our Deerhouse Manager and reviewed CCTV, and all we saw was an inflatable male doll, and this was after the entertainment had started after 9.30pm.
Are we interested, of course we are, we'd be mortified if we saw this type of activity going on when young children were in the bar, and would've taken immediate steps to stop it.
Regards
Rudding Holiday Park Team

    Stunning site with very friendly and helpful site. Grounds are extremely well kept.

    Disliked: 

    Club House and Swimming pool very expensive in my opinion. 1st site we have been on where the pool is not included in the price.
    Play park needs more than 2 swings upgrade definitely required for the amount of children on the park.
    Shop again in our opinion needs to add more variety.
    Showers pressure dropped in fact stopped when other cubicles were in use, I had to stand and wait until they had finished before continuing with my shower.

Directions


Situated only three miles south of Harrogate, Rudding Park lies just off the A658 linking the A61 from Leeds to the A59 York Road.

By road

From Leeds
From the M1 or M62 (M621) in Leeds; follow the A61 Harrogate signs. At the roundabout with the A658 (Bradford/York road) take the exit for York, and follow the brown tourist signs to Rudding Park (three miles).

From A1(M)
Exit at the A59 (J47) York/Harrogate road and follow the signs to Harrogate. At the first roundabout, take the A658 to Bradford. Two roundabouts later follow the brown tourist signs to Rudding Park (2.3 miles).

By train and plane
Rudding Park has excellent communication by rail and air. Harrogate train station is less than three miles away and Leeds Bradford Airport is a 30 minute drive from the park.

Helicopter
Rudding Park has its own helipad within easy walking distance of the hotel. Non residents may also use the hotel’s helicopter landing facilities by prior arrangement, subject to a small fee.

Local attractions

When taking flight off site, Rudding Holiday Park is minutes away from the A1 motorway to get to most of Yorkshire’s highlights, and it’s only two and a half miles from hanging out in Harrogate. Get to the chopper…

York, Leeds and Harrogate are all easily accessed from Rudding, as well as smaller settlements like Malham, Knaresborough and Ripon with its ancient cathedral and less ancient racecourse. The Yorkshire Dales National Park is to the west and the North York Moors to the north-east for active options like caving, boating, climbing and horse-riding.

Visitors to North Yorkshire will find historical sites and museums of all flavours at every turn: a few of the eclectic options on offer museum-wise include the Eden Camp Museum in Maldon for a noisily realistic look at World War II, and the quite fascinating and award-winning Thackray Medical Museum in Leeds, taking the wide-eyed visitor back through the history of medicine.

York is well worth a look too – in fact we’re going to insist – for the Jorvik Viking Centre and the frankly jaw-dropping York Minster, the biggest gothic cathedral in northern Europe. If you fancy yourself as a ghostbuster, slither along to Treasurer’s House, the medieval home of the treasurers of York Minster and said these days to be positively heaving with spooks.

Plenty of historic houses and National Trust properties are within reach of Ruffing, such as Beningborough and Nunnington Halls, and the country’s most complete Cistercian abbey and biggest monastic ruin Fountains Abbey. Leave a good stash of extra time on a visit to walk and gawp around what else is on offer at this World Heritage Site, including the Georgian water garden of Studley Royal, the medieval deer park and the reading room in Fountains Hall.

If you’ve decided on a truly relaxing holiday and don’t want to move more than a few miles from your pitch, the village nearest to Rudding Holiday Park, Follifoot, is within strolling distance and has a horse-riding centre for all abilities as well as a couple of decent pubs in the Harewood Arms and Radcliffe Arms.

Must see

  • RHS Garden Harlow Carr (3.2 miles)
  • Harewood House (5.7 miles)
  • Fountains Abbey (10.6 miles)

National Trust

  • Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Water Garden (10.6 miles)
  • Brimham Rocks (10.7 miles)
