General

  • Small, peaceful and traditional site on a working Yorkshire Dales farm
  • A 25-minute drive from Barnard Castle; 10 minutes from bicycle hire
  • Two pubs within walking distance; barbecues permitted

Taking some time out in the Yorkshire Dales National Park? A scoop of peace, a dash of rural scenery and a nice sprinkle of walking trails are some of the ingredients at Pepper Hall Campsite in Arkengarthdale. This small, traditional site has a tasty stay on a working farm in the national park, 25 minutes’ drive away from Barnard Castle.

This is a scenic spot with Swaledale sheep and beef cattle surrounding the site and walks straight from the site, either up onto the traditional Grouse moor or down into the valley bottom along the Arkle beck. Cycling is another popular pastime here, as there’s bicycle hire for the dales 10 minutes’ drive away.

To get to the site, you’ll have to cross over a shallow ford with a small stream. There’s a private running water supply on site and aside from that, you’ll have access to a toilet and permission to set up a barbecue.

Traditional ales and good food may be your first port of call. Handily, Langthwaite village is well-known for its pub five minutes’ walk away, which was rebuilt after floods and now has some great grub and drinks. There’s another pub 15 minutes’ walk away with a warm welcome and food.

There are a couple more cheery towns or villages around, including Reeth (10 minutes’ drive for a shop, playground and museum) and Richmond (a historic town, half an hour away).

    This was a great location to test drive our new tent and take two toddlers for their first camping experience. It's nice and remote and remote. The facilities were plenty for our one night stay (tap, toilet, bins, etc).

    Disliked: 

    We found a level place to pitch, but some of the site is on a slight hill so if it was busier we may have struggled to find somewhere.
