How would you like a Yorkshire Dales stay on a friendly family-run farm?
Have a look at Howgrave Hall Caravan Park: the amiable and hardworking team at this Bedale farm have been welcoming guests for generations, leading to a site that’s being constantly improved and where customer service, friendliness and spotless amenities are all taken as standard. (As are toasty flames and glowing embers: campfires and barbecues are both allowed.)
It’s all expertly overseen by Paul, who’s there on almost all occasions to welcome guests to their pitch and to share his extensive info on what to see and do – and eat and drink – nearby. And what might that be? Well, rather a lot... The Yorkshire Dales National Park is 15 minutes’ drive to the west, there are spectacularly scenic countryside walks straight from the farm, Ripon, Masham, Richmond and Lightwater Valley theme park are all within easy driving distance… and York is under 50 minutes’ drive for city sightseeing days.
The pitching part of the farm spreads over five acres of uncrowded green space, where every pitch has scenic views of the North Yorkshire surrounds. Among the well-maintained amenities are toilets, showers, disabled facilities, a washing-up area and chemical disposal; recycling is available on site.

Howgrave Hall is between Bedale to the north and Ripon to the south, both within 20 minutes’ drive of the farm.
Like many towns in this part of Yorkshire, Bedale’s a fine shopping town for local produce and specialities of all sorts: market days are on Tuesdays and the Bedale car boot sale is held every Saturday from April to October. Access the Wensleydale Railway at Bedale roo, on its 22-mile puff from between Leeming Bar and Redmire.
Heading south, Ripon is most famed for its cathedral, founded in the city in the seventh century, and for Ripon Racecourse, on a site where jockeys have raced since the early 18th century. A 10-minute drive out of town just inside the Yorkshire Dales National Park, is the spectacular UNESCO World Heritage Site of Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Park, a must-see if you’re anywhere in the region.
Even the kids should/might be impressed by Ripon and its surrounds; if not, zip speedily back up north for a day at Lightwater Valley Theme Park, home of Europe’s longest rollercoaster.
