General

  • Scenic and well-equipped park in the Yorkshire Dales
  • Spa, heated pool, sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi
  • Gym, beauty salon, coffee lounge and restaurant serving homemade food

You'll want a long long stay at Long Ashes Park. For this spectacular and well-equipped site is in the Yorkshire Dales National Park for weeks' worth of hiking and cycling... and comes with a first-rate range of leisure and foodie facilities for leisurely pursuits and fuelling up.

In green countryside a couple of miles from the North Yorkshire village of Grassington, Long Ashes is fably placed for guests to have as active or as laidback a hol as they want. You could scramble up one – or all – of the Three Peaks, tramp the Dales Way alongside the River Wharf, stride along to local villages like Thorpe and Hebden, or take to two wheels along the 130-mile Yorkshire Dales Cycleway... just for starters...

And if you're looking for a leisurely hol? Stay right on site, to buy spa day, facial and body therapy sessions for the Long Ashes Spa, or to linger for hours in the leisure club's heated pool, sauna,steam room and Jacuzzi. There's a gym at the leisure club if you insist on staying in shape, and a hairdressing salon to ensure your locks are in peak condition at all times.

No need to leave the site for eats either, as the Gamekeeper's Inn is to hand to dish up homemade food using locally-sourced produce, as well as cask and guest ales, Sunday carvery and afternoon tea. Ditherers are well catered for with the inn's regular food evenings like steak nights and Asian nights; if you'd prefer a light bite, the coffee lounge serves sandwiches, baked potatoes and other snacks alongside tea, coffee, soft drinks and wine.

Amenities are made up of family bathrooms, each with a large shower, a toilet and a wash basin.

    The quietness of the campsite.
    The cleanliness and quality of the toilets and showers were very good!
    The quarry next door is a very nice place to walk around.

    Disliked: 

    The field was very un even in places and there's stone a few inches under the ground which isn't ideal for camping.

    Changing rooms at swimming pool were not clean, dretched with water the whole time.
    Staff in reception seemed bitchy after coming off the phone from customers.
    Bar was nice but unless you were a known face even though you were stood waiting to be served locals where served before you.
    Rained whole time we were there so left after 3 days even though booked for 6 (weather can’t be helped)
    Policy on camp site was no loud music after 1030, this was not abided by.

    Brilliant site, field was basic but onsite facilities including spa, bar and restaurant were all incredible. Staff all friendly and cost of the above very reasonable. A bus stops at site to take you to the local villages which as it was raining was ideal.

    The grass was a bit too long on site, and the ground wasn't very level compared to other sites we've been too. There wasn't much to do, other sites we could hire little fires etc

Directions


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

Travel two miles to Grassington for a day around its tearooms and shops, then drop into the Grassington National Park Centre for info on what to see and do nearby. Walks leave right from the centre or from the village, including a waterside wander by the River Wharfe to Linton Falls, hikes over Grassington Moors, or a potter around the Grassington Riverside & Woods trail (pick up a leaflet for this at the centre).

Grassington is also on the Dales Way, the 80-mile route from Ilkley in West Yorkshire to Bowness-on-Windermere in Cumbria: hardy types can tackle the 13 miles from Grassington to Yockenthwaite, or hike in the other direction on the 16-mile stretch to Ilkley. For cycling, take the Yorkshire Dales Cycleway from Grassington to Ilkley and from there to Bolton Abbey.

If you'd much (much) prefer sightseeing and shopping days instead, the market town of Skipton is within 15 minutes' drive and Harrogate is within 50.
