General

  • Family-run site on a working farm between the Dales and Ribble Valley
  • Guests can join in with daily farming activities
  • 20 minutes' drive to Skipton Castle and Pendle Hill; 30 to Malham Cove

Get back to the land on this friendly working farm: Thornton Hall Farm Country Park lies on the borders of Lancashire and Yorkshire, a landscape of stone bridges and deep forests, wild moors and hills.

You're welcome to bring barbecues and sizzle your sausages while the sun sets and the cows settle to sleep; for other supplies, the café (open from 10am to 4pm) sells hot and cold food, snacks, desserts and hot and cold drinks (just as well, as you'll need a full tank for what's in store).

Unlike the farmer, you don't have to get up at dawn to milk the cows, but you can help out with feeding them later on, as well as feeding the lambs and meeting the llamas. There's a packed schedule of daily activities in the farm park too, from collecting eggs to handling rabbits and guinea pigs. Outdoor and indoor playgrounds ensure the Pennines weather never interferes with plans, and anyone still chasing thrills after descending the 18-foot slide can churn up some mud on the quad bikes.

    The staff were very helpful, very nice site with lots to do. Clean.

    Disliked: 

    Only two things really. First the alocated electric hookup was on the other side of a fence to my van, meaning I had to lean over barbwire (this should not even be there). Second is only a little thing there is no hose on the water tap.

    Good pitch and clean toilet facilities. We went on the farm safari and really enjoyed it. Park was good. Staff were friendly and helpful. Stunning views and loads to do nearby. Very good covid measures

    Disliked: 

    No use of shower facilities, not sure if this is covid related or not. If needs be shower facilities by the locks on the canal.

From the manager...

There are no showers on site at the moment but we hope to add them soon. Thank you for your review, we are glad you had a lovely stay and enjoyed our Farm Safari too :)

    Disliked: 

    Staying on a building site as work was going on all round us all day. Not allowed to use waste bins, told to take rubbish home! Loo emptying point unacceptable distance away from site - tracked at quarter of a mile there and back. Two dogs owned by staff member running loose, one of which bit my wife's leg. Cost £20/night for very little.

Local attractions

Miles of circular path steeped in the mystery of the Pendle witches and the romance of the Brontë sisters, the Pendle Way passes through the farm. If you don't fancy the 45-mile full monty, sections of trail take you up Pendle Hill, or through Wycoller, the inspiration for Jane Eyre. You can also walk a chunk of the Pennnine Way from Thornton village, passing over Elsack Moor and down into the old village of Lothersdale.

Skipton (15 minutes' drive) has a 12th-century castle that's hung onto its roof and dungeon through centuries of strife. The adjacent wood is the remnant of the ancient forests that once covered all of Yorkshire – it's full of trails and if you're lucky you'll spot kingfishers, herons and buzzards. Skipton is a handy spot for hiring bikes and taking boat trips down the Leeds-Liverpool Canal.

Head to the Pendle Heritage Centre in Barrowford (20 minutes) to uncover the murky legends and the even murkier truths of the 17th-century Pendle Witch trials. Wizard fans should be sure to visit Malham Cove (half an hour), the massive cliffs featured in Harry Potter films. Finish off by following the trail to Janet's Foss, a waterfall said to be home to the Queen of the Fairies. Out here, it's not hard to believe it.
