Aarons Campsite: Grass pitches

General

  • Family-friendly site in scenic countryside surroundings
  • Pubs five minutes' drive away; portable firepits on site for barbecues
  • Traditional camping experience on the fringes of Hebden Bridge

Mad about walking? Then you’d be silly to miss out on Aarons Campsite – the Cragg Vale location, between Halifax and Hebden Bridge, is right in the heart of the lush green Pennines, where heading out for a wander can turn into a full-blown hike that ranks up there with the best of them.

The secluded family-friendly site, in an area of moors and fields, is within easy reach of local attractions such as the popular tourist area Hebden Bridge. The surrounding hills and valleys (including Stoodley Pike) have been popular with trekking types for yonks too, whether for strolling along a riverside path, or for following stone causeways marking old packhorse routes; there's great dog walking terrain in all directions.

It’s all about nicely simple stays here, but just have a chat with the staff and they’ll provide you with portable firepits and wood for your campfire (for a small extra charge) – they also have a larger fixed campfire available for group hire. The easily accessible fields are flat and drained.

If you’re out of nosh or fancy leaving the cooking to someone else one evening, shops and takeaways are within a mile and a half of the site, as well as two village pubs. But if you’re out in the car on a food mission, be sure to grab some for the barbecue and invite some of your newfound friends over for a toasty evening meal.

    3 fields to choose from that I noticed, portaloos in most of them and fire pit and wood provided at a small cost. We went on a sunday because of trip advisor reviews reporting noise. There was a gent who did mention a hen party the night before so glad we missed that with a 3 year old in tow. It was exactly what we wanted it to be

Good for party nights it seems, not good for a peaceful break from wor26/07/2021

Reviewer's country: United KingdomAnonymousConfirmed

  • Non-electric grass tent pitch

  • Liked: 

    Friendly staff (when present)

    Disliked: 

    Noise levels from other guests were totally unacceptable , pretty much from when staff left site to 3am.
    Groups of friends combined to pretty much take over the field with football & cricket games accompanied by semi drunken, expletive ridden language.

    That behaviour stopped to be replaced by loud music and singing throughout the night into the early hours.

    Couldn’t wait to leave and packed up at first light to head home for some sleep.

    Price is very reasonable but not value for money because of spoilt weekend.

Local attractions

Cragg Vale, a 10-minute drive away, is a top spot to delve into local history and is crammed with independent shops for souvenirs and wallet emptying, from antiques and secondhand books to handmade quality crafts.

There's more shopping, along with Victorian streets and a hillside setting at Hebden Bridge (20 minutes), frequently hailed as one of the best market towns in the UK and Europe. Check out the town events when you're here too, as Hebden Bridge is home to an acclaimed arts festival and the famed Handmade Parade.

Hikers can ramble around all sorts of walking havens from here, with the Yorkshire Dales and the Forest of Bowland both within an hour's drive for weeks' worth of contented tramping about. Or have a highly energetic time closer to home with a clamber up to Stoodley Pike, commemorating the Battle of Waterloo. There are splendid views of green countryside from here, so bring your camera.

Brontë buffs might also want to check out the ruined farmhouse Top Withens (45 minutes), said to have been the inspiration for the Earnshaw home in Wuthering Heights. The surrounding moors are sure to have you searching for the nearest bookshop, or perhaps bawling out a certain Kate Bush song from the 70s...

Must see

  • Eureka! The National Children's Museum (4.7 miles)
  • Halifax Ski & Snowboard Centre (4.9 miles)
