The Tour de France passes our farm, but we still have access to routes not on its course. Our beautifully located site has views across Wensleydale to Aysgarth Falls and Bolton Castle, with easy access to the Tour spectator hub at Aysgarth.
The campsite is in a sheltered area with access to toilets and water supply. We are close to Aysgarth with shops and pubs close by in either West Burton or Aysgarth, and in a fantastic spot to explore the Tour's route: this is a cyclists'/walkers' heaven.
Specific Tour information:
- We're in a good location for more testing bike ride to all three climbs on Tour Day 1: almost exactly at the halfway point of Day 1 of the Grand Départ
- We are 15 minutes' walk to Aysgarth hub where there will be a big screen
- It's a three-mile gentle bike ride to the sprint - great for a young family
- We're 11 miles to the Cote de Bray summit and 13 miles to the start of Cote de Buttertubs - so are very well-placed for more adventurous cyclists to enjoy a good bike ride to their selected viewpoint.
Bikes are allowed on the course until just before the race so they are the perfect way to get around.

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.

The farm track is directly off the A684 which leaves the A1 from the Bedale junction. Coming from the east and the A1, follow the A684 through Leyburn.
Six miles later, having passed through Wensley, West Witton and Swinithwaite villages, and one mile past Swinithwaite the A684 goes down a steep hill on a left hand corner. Just past the sign to the B6160, but before the actual road junction, our farm track turns right off the main road. It is marked by a big yellow Aysgarth East signboard. The postcode takes you exactly to the track entrance. Follow down the track to the house to book in. We look forward to seeing you.
Bolton Castle at the centre of Wensleydale.
Many places to explore and a myriad of different walks.
A wide variety of places to eat.
