Philpin Farm is a small quiet site set on a family-run hill farm in the Yorkshire Dales, between Ingleborough and Whernside 2 of the Yorkshire Three Peaks, five miles from the nearest village of Ingleton and two miles from Ribblehead Station and viaduct on the famed Settle to Carlisle Railway.
This is walking country: many walks are available straight from the site, from easy strolls to climbing the three peaks of Ingleborough, Whernside or Penyghent). Rock climbing and caving is also around nearby
The site is small and two-tiered, with accommodation areas at the bottom and top of a small hill (the car park is adjacent to the top area as no cars are allowed on the camping field). A new shower and loo block with washing-up facilities was added for the 2016 season.
The farm barn is available to eat and mingle in, and has a snack bar open in it at weekends; also available to buy on site are cooked breakfasts, packed lunches and homemade cakes - just ask when you arrive - as well as socks, gloves, hats and rain ponchos if you've come a tad unprepared.
Barbecues are allowed on site if raised off the ground (strictly no fires please). The farm has a strict no-noise policy at night, so settle down here if you want a peaceful stay.
A pub is about 500 metres from the site and another is at Ribblehead two miles away.
Please note that as it's a secluded site, Philpin Farm has limited mobile reception and no wifi.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
