One of the friendly (and photogenic) locals

General

  • Among spectacular scenery in the Yorkshire Dales National Park
  • Within walking distance of West Burton and Thoralby villages
  • Next door to a 17th-century inn serving food and local beers

Now these are views… head here with the camera for scenes right up any holidaymaker's street: Street Head Caravan Park in the Yorkshire Dales National Park is in an area famous for its scenery and unspoilt countryside, and is surrounded by grazing countryside with Dale views across to the fells beyond.

Roll up here to take in the local walks and wildlife – you can walk up and down dales and over moorland from the site – or use Street Head as a base for exploring the wider Yorkshire Dales, the north-east and north-west coasts and the loveliness of the Lake District. The park has a coin launderette, 20p coin showers, toilets and a separate washing-up area with free hot water.

Street Head Caravan Park is in the valley of Bishopdale and has five pubs and restaurants within a few miles; the nearest, the 17th-century Street Head Inn, is very handily placed next door to the park offices for meals and sampling the local brews. The village of Thoralby is half a mile’s amble away and has a general store, Post Office and traditional pub; a shop and a butcher are at West Burton about a mile and a half away.

    Location. Could walk from site to 4 or 5 near by villages. Pub just next door selling good ale and the food smelled like nice pub food however we only had chips and onion rings which were good. Small and quiet site. Owner/staff were very friendly and helpful and gave us a map and gave us advice on walks and what/where to go and see.

    Disliked: 

    Only issue and it wasn't really an issue was the 20p for the showers. Other than that highly recommended site

Good stay on a well run campsite, shame about the road being so close 06/30/2019

    Clean facilities
    Generous tent pitches
    Friendly owners
    No parties/groups so nice and quiet at night
    Good phone signal if you're on Three

    Disliked: 

    All that separates you from the main road is a hedge, the road itself proved to be a bit busier than we expected (including motorbikes whizzing past at 6am)
    The toilet/dishwashing block is a 2-3 minute walk from the tent pitches, there is only a tap with drinking water near the pitches.
    You have to pre-book breakfast at the neighbouring pub - not the campsite's fault but worth noting

Directions


From the A1, exit at Junction 51 and take the A684 to Leyburn and from there, continue on the A684 towards Hawes. Approximately 1 mile after the village of Swinnithwaite, take the B6160 to the left signposted to Kettlewell (there is a Street Head Caravan Park signpost).

Stay on this road for 2 miles until you see the caravan park on your right. If you reach the Street Head Inn (large white pub on side of road) turn around as you have just passed the site; it is right next door.

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

There are plenty of places within walking distance of Street Head Caravan Park: West Burton has been described as one of the loveliest villages in England and has a well-kept village green leading to the natural waterfall of West Burton Cauldron.

The waterfall flows downstream into the River Ure to reach the famous Aysgarth Falls a couple of miles from Street Head and a favourite haunt of writer Wordsworth and painters Turner and Ruskin; the National Parks Information Centre here has guides to local walks, guided walks and activities like climbing and caving. The area around Street Head has miles of signposted footpaths for dale, moor and village-to-village strolls too.

Wander Wordsworth-like around Wensleydale for more well-known local attractions and dales villages: the area’s main town, Hawes, has a weekly market and a Mosaic Trail starting from the Holme bus shelter, but is probably best known for the Wensleydale Cheese Factory, favourites of that tasteful pair Wallace and Gromit...

For kids, the cathedral city of Ripon at the edge of Wensleydale about 40 minutes’ drive away comes with the Lightwater Valley theme park with a farm, a falconry centre and the UK’s first Angry Birds Activity Park. Newby Hall Adventure Garden, also at Ripon, has an interactive water area, playgrounds, pedalos and a miniature railway.

Or take the family to be bamboozled at the pyramid, passages and tunnels of Forbidden Corner at Coverdale (20 minutes), a former folly probably best described as ‘delightfully bonkers’.

Must see

  • Jervaulx Abbey (10.7 miles)
  • Richmond Castle (14.1 miles)
  • Easby Abbey (EH) (14.6 miles)

National Trust

  • Braithwaite Hall (7.8 miles)
  • Malham Tarn Estate (13.5 miles)
