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.

    - the facilities are quite far away from the tent pitches especially if it’s a cold morning! But I think this is being sorted as they were building whilst we were there.

Directions


Take the B6160 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’.
