View over the Yorkshire Dales

General

  • Family-friendly site in village used as location for Emmerdale
  • Bar, playground, games room and function room
  • 10 miles from the Yorkshire Dales National Park and 11 from Leeds

Spacious pitches, scenic Yorkshire surroundings, proximity to Leeds, and a pint in the Emmerdale pub of the Woolpack all await at Esholt Sports Club, a family-friendly site set in the village used as the location for the TV soap.

It's all in scenic countryside on the edge of the Yorkshire village of Esholt, two miles east of Shipley, five miles north of Bradford and 11 miles west of Leeds. Esholt found fame as the original setting of Emmerdale: fans of the show will probably recognise several other village locations while here. (And whether you're a fan or not, a pint at the Woolpack is probably a top idea...)

The pitches and facilities of the site are within the grounds of Esholt Sports & Leisure, which has a well-stocked bar, a playground, a games room and a function room available for hire. Amenities for guests include toilets, showers, a launderette, a washing-up area and a chemical disposal point.

Esholt is well placed for visiting heaps of Yorkshire attractions, such as the museums of Leeds and Bradford, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Saltaire and the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Please note

    Large sports field with plenty of space. Staff friendly. Near to major cities whilst being firmly in the country. Staff did not take payment from my friends for the third night when they had to leave unexpectedly.

    Disliked: 

    It’s not clear when booking that any electricity used over the initial £2.50 fee paid is extra. That isn’t the sites fault. The toilets and shower were very basic although the water was lovely and hot.

    Nice location, within easy shout of a pub. Good level site, the roadside shower facilities were certainly preferable to the home/away team block.

    Disliked: 

    Pitch up described booking as 'electric optional' so assumed it would be available. Best to check when booking as when we got to site we were told we hadn't booked it; luckily there were still 2 points unused.

    The little village

    Disliked: 

    The site is a dump the facilities look as though they’ve not been cleaned in years. No signs to tell you where to check in. Paid for 2 days electric yet it’s metered & would be charged more of went over! No mention of that when booking. Foul smell on a night like waste being burnt. Place is full of flies. People clearly living on site. Can’t use facilities when cricket is on. Left early

From the manager...

We feel the site is not a dump as we have regular visitors to our site and many of them give us good reviews. We have four sets of showers and toilets and only two sets are used by the cricketers. This is explained in a leaflet given when visitors first arrive. Soon, everybody will be paying for electric by meter. We cannot control what people (not on the site) are doing i.e. burning waste and nor can we control flies.

If you're feeling a tad inactive, tour the park by car; if not, other adrenalised activities including mountain biking, horse riding, caving, gorge scrambling or open-water swimming.

For towns and shopping, Otley, Ilkley and Skipton are all nearby: Otley (six miles) is a Walkers Are Welcome town and has a number of walking trails that start and end in the town; Ilkley has a toy museum and walks onto Ilkley Moor to see the Cow and Calf rock formation (nine miles), and Skipton (18 miles) is where you'll find the Embsay & Bolton Abbey Steam Railway and barge trips on the Leeds-Liverpool Canal.

Four miles away is the famed village of Saltaire, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with several galleries and exhibitions including works by the artist David Hockney, who grew up in Bradford. There's an 11-day festival in the town every September and the Saltaire Arts Trail arts festival runs every May.

The nightlife, shopping, restaurants and museums of Bradford and Leeds are five and 11 miles away.
