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.

    The location is perfect. The village where it is situated is very pretty and just a short stroll away. The manager/ owner was extremely friendly, welcoming and helpful. This site is good for a base only

    Disliked: 

    This site has very little amenities .... it’s a field. The shower block on the roadside is very tired and unclean I didn’t use it even for the toilet. The home and away cricket club showers are ok but still tired, again I didn’t use them. I also found it a bit off putting that they are all unisex, therefore would not allow my children to the toilet block on their own and as I woman would certainly not use it. Luckily I was in a caravan so had my own bathroom!!!! The pitches were like a swamp this could be due to the time of year we went (March/April bank holiday) but we got stuck parking up and took us 1 hour and a lot of revs to get out after churning up the grass.

    I would also like to mention which has no reflection on the campsite that this place appealed to me due to the fact that it was close to The Woolpack ( the original emmerdale outside village / pub.) We went for tea the first night there and found it to be overpriced average and the decor dreadfully dirty with broken chairs.

    All the staff were helpful and friendly. Showers and toilets were kept clean and fresh.

    Disliked: 

    The hardstanding pitch could have been better there was so much mud around you could not help treading it into your motorhome, a little tarmacadam would have helped.
    The heating in the shower block only came on when the function room above was in use this did not help on cold mornings when you needed to warm up.

Local attractions

As it's Yorkshire, walks among spectacular scenery are all around: make for the Yorkshire Dales National Park 10 miles away to access many miles' worth as well among traditional villages and old market towns. 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.
