Thornton Hall Farm Country Park: Pitches

General

  • Family-run site on a working farm between the Dales and Ribble Valley
  • Farm park and playground on site (tickets must be prebooked)
  • 20 minutes' drive to Skipton Castle and Pendle Hill; 30 to Malham Cove

Get back to the land on this friendly working farm: Thornton Hall Farm Country Park lies on the borders of Lancashire and Yorkshire, a landscape of stone bridges and deep forests, wild moors and hills.

You're welcome to bring barbecues and sizzle your sausages while the sun sets and the cows settle to sleep; for other supplies, the café (open from 10am to 4pm) sells hot and cold food, snacks, desserts and hot and cold drinks (just as well, as you'll need a full tank for what's in store).

Unlike the farmer, you don't have to get up at dawn to milk the cows, but you can help out with feeding them later on, as well as feeding the lambs and meeting the llamas. There's a packed schedule of daily activities in the farm park too, from collecting eggs to handling rabbits and guinea pigs. Outdoor and indoor playgrounds ensure the Pennines weather never interferes with plans, and anyone still chasing thrills after descending the 18-foot slide can churn up some mud on the quad bikes.

(Please note that the farm park and play areas are separate from the campsite and are subject to extra charges; tickets must be prebooked online.)

    The site is set in beautifully tended grounds with a gorgeous main building. The staff i spoke to were so lovely and happy to help. There are also great family facilities in the farm park. I wanted a go in the "caterpillar" ride which made me giggle. I had the whole site to myself after the first night and the toilet and shower facilities were spot on despite being small. Would definitely stay there again 👍

    We had a lovely stay here. The caravan pitch was a generous size, big enough to pitch a pup tent, which we had prebooked and park two cars, one of which was a small extra payment. The toilet/shower facilities were easily accessible, modern and very clean. The farm tourist attraction is fantastic if you have children. There's plenty to do and they put something different on every day. I would suggest bringing a picnic as food and drink prices are fairly costly. All staff members were extremely pleasant and helpful. It's a beautiful area with lovely views and close to Skipton. I would recommend this to people who have children. Our two boys loved it.

    Disliked: 

    We were pitched opposite the toilets and people kept leaving the doors open. It spoiled our scenic view a bit. Why can't people shut doors?

From the manager...

Thank you for your lovely review, we are so pleased to read that you had an enjoyable family stay with us. I have noted the comment regarding the toilet doors and we will review this. THCP

Local attractions

Miles of circular path steeped in the mystery of the Pendle witches and the romance of the Brontë sisters, the Pendle Way passes through the farm. If you don't fancy the 45-mile full monty, sections of trail take you up Pendle Hill, or through Wycoller, the inspiration for Jane Eyre. You can also walk a chunk of the Pennnine Way from Thornton village, passing over Elsack Moor and down into the old village of Lothersdale.

Skipton (15 minutes' drive) has a 12th-century castle that's hung onto its roof and dungeon through centuries of strife. The adjacent wood is the remnant of the ancient forests that once covered all of Yorkshire – it's full of trails and if you're lucky you'll spot kingfishers, herons and buzzards. Skipton is a handy spot for hiring bikes and taking boat trips down the Leeds-Liverpool Canal.

Head to the Pendle Heritage Centre in Barrowford (20 minutes) to uncover the murky legends and the even murkier truths of the 17th-century Pendle Witch trials. Wizard fans should be sure to visit Malham Cove (half an hour), the massive cliffs featured in Harry Potter films. Finish off by following the trail to Janet's Foss, a waterfall said to be home to the Queen of the Fairies. Out here, it's not hard to believe it.

Must see

  • Bronte Parsonage Museum (10.4 miles)
  • Gawthorpe Hall (10.5 miles)
  • East Riddlesden Hall (NT) (11.6 miles)
