General

  • Peaceful family-friendly site in the scenic Forest of Bowland
  • A 10-minute drive from Settle and 50 minutes from Lancaster
  • A 5-minute drive from the Yorkshire Dales and 35 from the Lakes

Keen on calming stays with easy access to mountains, National Parks and the local village pub? Then settle in for peaceful hols at Yorkshire Dales Campsite, a family-friendly site 10 minutes’ drive from the Lancashire market town of Settle.

The site’s well placed for ramblers, especially those with dogs in tow… In the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it should come as no surprise that there are plenty of walking trails leaving directly from the site. Not ambitious enough? It’s less than five minutes to the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, and the Three Peaks – Whernside, Ingleborough and Pen-y-Ghent – are between 25 and 40 minutes away.

If modes of transport other than one’s own legs appeal instead, make tracks for Gisburn Forest 20 minutes away, to explore trails on foot, on horseback, or on hired bikes or wheelchairs. Dogs are welcome too, so there's no need to leave canine chums chasing their tails back at site.

Well-earned quiet days and nights are a cinch on site: there’s a half-mile dog walk by the river for unwinding walkies, and barbecues and campfires are allowed. If a night on the town is preferable to barbecued dinner and sitting around the firepit, local eats and pints can be had five minutes’ drive (or a 20-minute walk) away at the pub in the nearby village of Austwick.

    the staff was great very chatty and friendly and accommodating,always came over for a chat
    they kept the toilet/shower blocks clean and tidy, you get a long time in the shower for 50p
    the dog walk was great a nice walk round the horse pens to excersise your dogs,
    We had great weather for most of the week.

    Loved the site, nice and quite but not so you feel you can't have fun and make noise, lovely clean facilities and brilliant value for money. The staff are very pleasant to deal with and we are definitely making Yorkshire Dales Campsite one of our new favourite sites.

    Great place to stay, made to feel very welcome from very friendly staff.
    Weather wasn’t on our side but we still had a good time.
    Facilities were excellent, very well maintained and cleaned at least twice a day.
    Information centre was well stocked with things to do in the area (there was plenty to do).
    We were kept very well informed regarding any changing weather.
    We were provided a complimentary fire pit and we had a lovely fire in the evening. We were allowed to bring our own wood but could buy it on site if required.
    Myself and my 2 children (5 and 13) are looking forward to returning.

    Would be better for families without children as theres nothing for them to do at all.

    Disliked: 

    The fact we were just plonked in a field with nothing there except 1 toilet not even any hot water. And u had to pay for showers aswell. The field were on a hill so the tent tilted and sleeping was a disaster because we kept rolling off the bed due to the uneven field. Had to drive to wash pots or have a shower.

    The BEST showers we’ve ever experienced at a camp site, and kept beautifully clean. The separate tent field was very quiet and large- we were able to take as much space as we needed. Would recommend- very well located for Ingleton and Malham.

Local attractions

If the mere suggestion of hols sends everyone in the family scurrying for the beach towels, be sure to head to Morecambe as quick as can be. The large coastal town 50 minutes’ drive from base has a promenade to stroll, a dog-friendly beach for tail-wagging explores, gardens for budding botanists and miniature golf for turning stays into holes in one.

When seaside cravings are dealt with, retreat back inland to Lancaster for city days; within 50 minutes of the site, there are museums, galleries, a cathedral, a Roman bath house, and – for keen lepidopterists – a butterfly house.

Lengthier city jaunts can be sought in Leeds by clambering into the car for an hour and a half’s journey, or by booking a seat on the train leaving Settle (10 minutes) for an hour of travelling in style. By rights, though, any trains departing Settle should be caught heading in the other direction, along the Settle-Carlisle Railway and crossing the impressive Ribblehead Viaduct.

Closer at hand, spend pretty-filled days at the stunning Malham Cove (which Harry Potter fans may recognise from the sixth film) half an hour away, opt for the spectacularly photographable Ingleton Falls 10 minutes from base, or dive below the surface at White Scar or Ingleborough caves, both within 15 minutes.

Must see

  • Lancaster Castle (28.8 kilometers)
  • Beacon Fell Country Park (31.0 kilometers)
  • Levens Hall & Gardens (31.6 kilometers)

National Trust

  • Malham Tarn Estate (12.9 kilometers)
  • Sizergh Castle and Garden (33.0 kilometers)
