Black Swan Holiday Park

7.9

This park does not currently take bookings here on Pitchup.com.

General

  • Pub site with 17th-century inn and moor/vale views
  • Easily reachable from the A1, two miles from Masham
  • Walks starting directly from the site: route copies available

Here’s a site you’ll be happy to swan around: Black Swan Holiday Park is in a hidden spot in the Yorkshire Dales and just next to a 17th-century inn dishing up home-cooked food among views of the moors and the Vale of York. Hurrah, hooray and pass the Black Sheep bitter.

No eating like a bird either: the Black Swan food is properly portioned with plenty to pick from, and there are several veggie options as well as themed evenings such as steak nights (occasionally with non-local samplings like springbok or ostrich). The bar meals are served at lunchtime, with a bistro in the evenings and a roast lunch on Sundays with locally sourced meat and homemade desserts, alongside local and guest ales. (As you can probably imagine, all this is rather popular, so you'd do well to book yourselves a table ahead of your trip as space can't be guaranteed otherwise.)

Getting swanwards is simple: the pub is easily reached from the A1 and is in the old village of Fearby, two miles from Masham. Once there, two walks start directly from the site; ask staff for copies of the routes.

Black Swan guests have access to a shower and toilet block.

    Everything!
    It’s situated in the most beautiful village. It’s literally like driving through Emmerdale. The skies were so clear we could see the plough etc.
    and the food and customer service in the pub was outstanding. I haven’t enjoyed a meal out as much as that one for a long time. I had the fish and chips. It was HUGE!!! The batter was beautiful and the fish! It was massive inside the batter. So delicate and pure white. It filled the batter from end to end. Some places you get mainly batter with a tiny bit of fish inside. Not here! Quality!
    We couldn’t fault the place and will definitely return when we’re next in the area.
    Oh and it’s dog friendly too! We pre booked our table for 4 as it’s limited seating in the bar where dogs are allowed but there is the restaurant side for those without dogs. Just perfect!

Local attractions

Those Black Swan walks first: the pub team has put together details of two local walks direct from your pitch, including a five-mile trek to 19th-century folly The Druid’s Temple, built by a local squire as a mini Stonehenge.

There are walks for all levels in this part of the Yorkshire Dales: if you’re feeling fit, you can stride off into the moorland; if not, ask about the easy riverside strolls nearby. Most Ordnance Survey paths around here are accessible but some aren't well used, so hone your navigational skills before setting off.

Masham is easily reached by foot and has Georgian architecture, two breweries and one of the biggest markets in the area (on Wednesdays and Saturdays); bike hire is available here too.

The Black Swan can be used as a base for beetling around the Yorkshire moors whatever your activity level after a few Yorkshire ales the night before: high ropes adventure courses are at nearby Aerial Extreme, clay pigeon shooting within a mile and off-road 4X4 driving/quad biking nearby for the energetic. The 18-mile route of the North Yorkshire Moors Railway or exploring the many nearby market towns are topping options for the more moderately minded.

You may of course have no say in deciding your activity levels/options if the kids are with you; if so, you’ll probably end up at Lightwater Valley eight miles away, home of the country’s first Angry Birds activity park and with a farm park and falconry. And even culture-resistant kids should like the Beamish living museum in Co Durham with its regular events and costumed guides…

Must see

  • Jervaulx Abbey (3.3 miles)
  • Fountains Abbey (8.9 miles)
  • Richmond Castle (12.4 miles)

National Trust

  • Braithwaite Hall (5.1 miles)
  • Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Water Garden (8.9 miles)
