Dalesbridge: Bowland views on the large field (photo added by manager on 30/08/2018)

General

  • Spacious site between the Yorkshire Dales and Forest of Bowland
  • Within half an hour of the Three Peaks, Malham Cove and Gisburn Forest
  • Lockable bike store and bike wash; fully-licensed bar and shop

Got a bike? Get on it and pedal over to Dalesbridge, a cycle-friendly site between the Yorkshire Dales and the Forest of Bowland.

Here on this roomy and tree-filled site a lockable bike store awaits for your valued two-wheeled vehicles, as well as a cycle wash area so you can hose the mud off after long days up hill and down dale. The site team is steeped in local knowledge too when it comes to Dales trails and Bowland bike paths and this peaceful setting is all about half an hour’s drive from the Gisburn Forest, where mountain bikers of all ages, fitness and nerve can pedal a route to suit.

Whether you’ve been making white-knuckle rides down the slopes, trying to bag the Three Peaks in 12 hours or settling down for the scenery on the Settle-Carlisle railway, you’ll have a quiet and welcoming base to come back to at Dalesbridge. There’s ample room, staff who are happy to help, and most importantly for mountain roamers returning with a thirst, a fully licensed bar (open at certain times). There is also a pizza oven and an on-site shop, where you can stop off for coffee, rolls and pastries at the weekend.

If you’ve returned hungry as well, you’re welcome to barbecue bangers and everything else on site, and shops and supermarkets are 10 minutes’ drive away in Settle.

Overall a great site in a great location20/02/2024

  • Electric gravel and hardstanding touring pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Hardstanding pitch which was relatively level. Easy access to electric and water. Lovely bar on site with good selection of beers. Large grassed area for walking the dog. Great views and location for other local attractions. The Courtyard Dairy cheese shop is a must and only 2 minutes away.

    Disliked: 

    No locks on toilet and shower room. No dog poo bins. No area for dogs to be let off lead. There is a drain for grey waste disposal but it is not convenient for motorhome unless you have a hose to run to it

From the manager...

Glad you enjoyed your stay and hopefully we see you again at the Dalesbridge.

The Locks are like PVC doors and you need to lift the handle to lock it. I checked them today and one was sticky.
We did have notes on the handles, although they have been peeled off, we will add them again.
The Grey water waste drive over is something we are looking to add.

  • Liked: 

    Very pleasant and well managed site and equally pleasant host.
    I was in a tent but being with two others whom were in vans on hard standing we were put as a group so no problem accommodating the two set-ups.
    Its a lovely peaceful spot despite the A65 being not so far away. Immediate access to the Limestone dales and three peaks.
    Very clean toilet/shower facilities. Has a family vibe and there was numerous motorhomes on the hard standing opposite.
    Really recommend the Dalesbridge

    Great site, good size pitches and pretty flat. The bar is a really nice touch.

    Disliked: 

    Quite a few of the toilet/shower unit door locks don't work, which makes it a bit risky! I both opened the door on someone and had the door opened on me. As they are for men and women, it doesn't feel very safe.

From the manager...

Thank you for your lovely review,

We have added stickers on the locks to explain how to lock them. I also fixed bathroom 4 which was stiff.

Directions


Dalesbridge campsite is just off the main A65 road between Ingleton and Settle. Do not drive into Austwick.
If travelling from the Settle direction the site is past the Austwick sign on the lefthand side of the road: turn into the entrance directly before the Dalesbridge sign. If travelling from Ingleton the site is just past the second turning into the village of Austwick; turn right after the crossroads.

Satnav: please note that our entrance is directly off the A65: do not turn up Orcaber Lane!

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

The Three Peaks of Whernside, Ingleborough and Pen-y-ghent are all reachable within half an hour's drive of the site, so it's your choice whether you hoof it up them in a single day, or take your time, savouring views and devouring hard-earned picnics on top.

Starting 10 minutes away, the walk to Ingleton Falls is gentle but no less rewarding, and even though you’re heading deep down instead of up, the caverns and wild rock formations of Whitescar and Ingleborough caves make for unmissable wanders.

For walks with wildlife, make the half-hour trip to Malham Cove, where a pair of nesting peregrine falcons can be spotted in the summer months, alongside resident populations of jackdaws and housemartins. You can climb the massive amphitheatre cliffs of the cove, or follow trails up and around taking in the glacial Malham Tarn and Janet’s Foss waterfall.

To see some wildlife at closer quarters, the Settle Falconry Centre (five minutes' drive) has daily displays of flying and feeding and if you feel you’d like to soar through the skies, the Ribble Viaduct section of the Settle-Carlisle Railway makes a fair imitation.

If all this outdoor, high altitude stuff has made you peckish, head over to the Wensleydale Creamery (40 minutes) to learn how the famed crumbly cheese is made… and then sample some, but of course.

Must see

  • Lancaster Castle (18.2 miles)
  • Beacon Fell Country Park (19.5 miles)
  • Levens Hall & Gardens (19.8 miles)
