Clarion Lodge Campsite: Grass pitches surrounded by trees

General

  • Small family-run site five minutes' drive from Menston and Otley
  • Half an hour's drive from Leeds, Bradford and Harrogate
  • Views over Wharfe Valley and a few minutes from the Yorkshire Dales

Town or country? No such pesky decisions to be made when staying at Clarion Lodge Campsite – its handy Menston location means your answer can be a laidback ‘both, ta’.

Settle at this small family-run site and you can say yes to many of Yorkshire’s finest offerings: Leeds, Bradford and Harrogate are all about a half-hour drive away for those times when you seek museums, restaurants, shops and nightlife, and the wide open spaces of the Yorkshire Dales are just a couple of miles away when you’ve got something rather more rural in mind.

Sneak previews of your rural surrounds are on offer on site, for this peaceful place has fab views out over the Wharfe Valley from its elevated location on the Chevin. Don’t be fooled by that rustic outlook, however; you’re not completely out in the countryside here. The little towns of Menston and Otley are both a mile away for train trips, riverside walks, supermarket supplies and takeaway curries; even more convenient is the kid- and dog-friendly 18th-century country inn a mere five minutes’ amble from the site.

This is a place that appreciates its peace and quiet, so there’s no large groups or music allowed. Ball games and barbecues are welcome but you’ll be asked to keep the hubbub down as night falls so that everyone can enjoy a bit of kip. Facilities are similarly low key: a tourist info point, a gents’ and ladies’ toilet block and a log cabin washing-up area keeping you clean and comfy.

    Toilets were clean.
    Nice walk to Otley but not much more to say that was good!

    Disliked: 

    Stated they would take payment on arrival but they don't have the facility so required it via bank transfer prior to stay.
    Slow replying to emails.
    No reception.
    No marked out pitches on arrival.
    Arrived in the dark and just a white board with name on it at the front, no obvious where to go.
    Pitches not hardstanding they are very boggy.
    No one on site to speak to if there's a problem.

    Lovely location overlooking Ilkley Moor
    Beautiful sunset. Very quiet pitch
    Planes did go over and we heard them early morning but this didn’t bother us.
    Pub at top of road but we didn’t go so
    Can’t vouch for it.

    Disliked: 

    A little confusion when we arrived. We had been told our name and pitch number would be on a board but it wasn’t and we couldn’t get hold of anyone, having double checked that we had booked the correct dates. So we chose a pitch which worked out fine
    Basic shower and toilet block. Water for our Moho and ehu. No drain for waste water but my husband emptied with bucket into a waste water point.
    These are not negative comments just meant to be useful info for anyone wanting to go.
    We would be happy to go back.

Local attractions

All set for fresh air? You’re in the right place: the Chevin is a great base for walks and other outdoorsy outings. Climbers can cling to Caley Crags, Armscliffe Crag and the Cow and Calf (all within a 20-minute drive), golfers can take aim at a couple of courses within 15 minutes and there are orienteering courses five minutes away in Chevin Forest Park.

For a slice of history as you wander, head to Harewood House (20 minutes’ drive), Skipton Castle (half an hour) or Bolton Abbey (half an hour), stopping for a ride on the Embsay & Bolton Abbey Steam Railway for added nostalgia. If a bit of animal magic’s more your style, head to Hesketh Farm Park or the Tropical World Leeds zoo, both half an hour away.

More interested in a slice of cake? The famed Betty’s tearooms in Harrogate (also half an hour) make a tasty stop on a tour of the town, taking in the Valley Gardens, Pump Room Gallery and a trip out to the RHS Harlow Carr Gardens.
