Primrose Park: Grass pitches with views

General

  • Well-maintained and peaceful park a mile away from Gisburn Forest
  • A 20-minute drive from Settle and half an hour from Skipton
  • Barbecues and dogs welcome; a 10-minute drive from the local pub

What say you to pitching up in a peaceful forest clearing? Primrose Park is a well-maintained site on the edge of the Forest of Bowland and close to the Yorkshire Dales, making this spot a particularly appealing base for those seeking back to basics hols filled with rural rambles.

This fine little site is surrounded by green Lancashire lanes and gorgeous forest vistas – Gisburn Forest Hub (10 minutes' drive), a visitor centre with a café, mountain bike trails and waymarked walks, makes a great starting point for exploring both. You'll also likely want to plan a few trips across the Yorkshire border for outdoor jaunts around Malham or shopping trips in the market town of Skipton (both are about half an hour away).

Families (including their canine members) are welcome at this friendly site; there's also an outdoor play area where the tiddlers can play and meet new pals in a safe environment. For sociable evening eats, you can light up a barbecue and get cooking with your clan; if the weather has other ideas, you can always bag yourself a table at the nearest pub, 10 minutes away. Facilities are fairly minimal on site, but you'll have access to two unisex toilet/shower blocks.

Snacks and other supplies can be sorted with a quick trip to the closest supermarket in Settle (20 minutes away by car), where there's also a range of eateries from fish and chips to fine dining and all points in between.

Please note

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

    Lovely site with a great play area for our little boy. Sand pit and lots of toys. The shower facilities were new and clean.

    Disliked: 

    The portal potty toilets were full by the first evening. Clearly just due to being busy rather than uncleaned, but still not great. Only reason is not 5 stars.

A lovely campsite! Met on arrival and told to pitch …07/06/2021

    A lovely campsite! Met on arrival and told to pitch where we liked as long as we left enough space between us and the next people. Top tip - the grass camping field is far prettier than the gravel pitch/EHU field.

    There were 2 portaloos and 2 shower/toilet huts, they were kept clean and well stocked with loo roll throughout our stay. The showers were hot and powerful. Plenty of bins for rubbish disposal and recycling. There was an Elsan disposal point. Fire pits are available to hire. BBQ's are allowed. There is a bit of a park with a sandpit and play area in the middle of the field which looked great for young children to run off and play and parents could keep an eye on them from their pitch.

    The site is 10 mins drive from Gisburn Forest and Stocks Reservoir for some good walks and mountain biking trails, and a visit to the Old Vicarage Tearooms which just a couple of minutes up the road is a must!

    We will definitely return.

    Disliked: 

    Drinking water is only switched on for few hours in the morning and evening. And there is no hot water for washing up.

    It didn't spoil our stay, we were in a campervan and had brought plently of water with us and could boil a kettle for washing up - it's just something to be aware of.

Directions

Local attractions

Itching to get out for some outdoor pursuits? Put your tackle to the test at Stocks Reservoir (10 minutes' drive), a nearby angling spot where you can catch both brown and rainbow trout. (If all this fly fishing malarky is new to you, you can also book a crash course in the basics before getting started.) The local riding stable (10 minutes) is another popular pick if you fancy a spell in the saddle.

Up for roaming the hills of the Yorkshire Dales and Eden Valley by rail? Pull up in Settle (20 minutes) and get yourself aboard the Settle to Carlisle railway, a solidly scenic 73-mile line with highlights like the Ribblehead Viaduct and Dent station, the highest in all of England. Steam services are also occasionally laid on for those looking to make the four-hour round trip in style.

Other visit-worthy Yorkshire haunts include Skipton (30 minutes), home to a well-preserved castle and narrowboat tours, Bolton Abbey (40 minutes) and the Dales village of Malham (30 minutes), the starting point for hardy hill walkers heading out to Malham Cove and Malham Tarn.

Must see

  • Gawthorpe Hall (12.4 miles)
  • Beacon Fell Country Park (14.7 miles)
