Black Swan Holiday Park

7.5

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; wifi is available on site.

    The onsite pub is lovely.

    Disliked: 

    The toilet and shower block was basic, cold - no heating, and not scrupulously clean. For a 2 night break it was OK, but if staying longer and needing a shower you'd want it to be warmer and more modern.

    This is the first time we have stayed at this site and it was lovely. We have managed to leave our van on the site to go back this weekend. The staff were so friendly and helpful. The food was lovely too. Can't wait to visit this site in the summer.

    Ideal place as a stepping stone to the Yorkshire sales. Beautiful views made welcome by Bailey who was happy to help with advice re local walks. Food in the pub was excellent and thoroughly recommend. Bar at the front dog friendly with a lovely relaxed ambience. Site was tidy and given the late time in the season there were several pitches to choose from altogether an enjoyable visit.

    Disliked: 

    A little updating needed in the shower/toilet block although clean and mostly usable. Some of the pitches were not very level and would need chocks.

    Cosy pub, well serviced pitches, plenty of opportunity to walk the hound (it was just me and the hound travelling). TBF: somewhere to chill out and take him for a walk suits me just fine. Plenty of electric points and water points on site.

    Disliked: 

    Not really a 'dislike', but I couldn't get any TV signal (this may just be my old caravan equipment and more modern stuff may be fine). I was on hardstanding pitch which is level, but some of the grass pitches are on a slope, so advise taking levelling blocks / chocks :-)

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)
