Camping field next to a working farm

General

  • Peaceful back-to-basics site opposite a pub in a quiet hamlet
  • Close to several walking routes in the Yorkshire Dales National Park
  • 400 year old food pub opposite the site

Pizza, dales and cask ale... what a winning combo. Get stuck into the lot from peaceful and rural Bridge House Campsite in the Yorkshire Dales National Park: this lovely little place has its own pizzeria and is a few minutes' potter from the local pub and a fine menu of fine cask ales (and pub grub too, should you crave yet more after your pizza).

You may then care to burn some of that off. Sorted, as the site is in a popular place for Yorkshire Dales hikes, with several trails (including the Dales Way) accessible from local village Starbotton, and enough more nearby to burn off even a daily pizza and cask ale habit... Around the region, Skipton is half an hour's drive south and Harrogate within an hour to the north east. The Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is 45 minutes away.

But back to that pizza. Bridge House is set around a 19th-century farmhouse, owned by generations of the same family since 1883; the most recent lot have – how sensible – turned the house's dining room has been turned into a pizzeria where pizzas, desserts and soft drinks are available to have in or take away on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings. And the pub? It's the Fox and Hounds, a 400 year old inn conveniently set almost opposite the site.

Pitches at Bridge House are on grass and for tents, and amenities include a water tap, a flushing toilet and a portable shower in a shaded corner next to the camping field. The site is behind the pizzeria: look for the Cecilia's Pizzeria sign.

    Beautiful location in a small quiet village. Very good location for traveling around the Dales and going for picturesque walks. Lovely tranquil basic campsite, but very clean. You can pick your own pitch, and all have stunning views. There is only one toilet and one shower, but both were very clean and looked after. We were not there for the days Cecilia's pizzeria was open, but we were warmly greeted, and it was lovely to find out about the history of the main house the campsite is on.

    Disliked: 

    Not a dislike, but no hot water to wash dishes, so make sure you bring a proper scourer if using utensils.

    Very warm and friendly welcome and during our stay from Cecilia. Beautiful location in the Dale's. Small campsite with a bridge house ( former Quaker meeting house) which we stayed in which was great, twin beds, sofa, arm chair, table, log burner with wood, kettle, mugs, coffee and tea and water on arrival, nice touch. Dogs welcomed, ours loved it. Totally enjoyed the bridge house. One toilet and shower on camp site and use of the toilet and shower in Cecilia's house as well. All very clean at all times. Well organised with Gel and in and out system during these current times. Campsite looked great small and peaceful. Unfortunately we didn't sample the pizza as already pre booked for a table at the local pub which was great. Will definitely be returning to the site and next time will sample the pizzas. Lots of walks from the village and beautiful scenery. Village shop at Buckden, who does take out hot drinks and hot pies, well stocked shops with alsorts in there. We will be returning, thank you for a great three days

    A lovely, friendly welcome. Good facilities, very clean and COVID measures in place. Dog friendly too :-) We enjoyed takeaway pizza from Ceceilia’s Pizzeria- it was delicious! Popped into the pub across the road for a drink which was nice. Very close to the start of a number of Lovely walks to nearby villages.

    Disliked: 

    Pack insect repellent- it was fine in the afternoon/evening but lots of midges in the morning!

    The campsite was very calm and other campers were very friendly. The views were spectacular, especially at sunrise. The facilities were good and well looked after. I would recommend this campsite, especially to families or backpackers!

    Disliked: 

    I spent quite a while looking for this campsite and ended up on the wrong campsite across the road. The campsite should perhaps have better road markings.

Local attractions

Local village Starbotton is a popular startoff point for Yorkshire Dales and Wharfdale hikes, as it's near the Dales Way, running for 80 miles from Ilkley in West Yorkshire to Bowness-on-Windermere in Cumbria. Energetic types could also tackle Buckden Pike (10 minutes' drive), a heady fell hike leading to the top of Wharfedale; the only higher peak in the area is Great Whernside (15 minutes), a paltry two metres taller.

There's loads more to see and do in the area by car, such as Kilnsey Park, (15 minutes), a farm park with fishing and kids' activities), or a look at the history and industry of the area at the Dales Countryside Museum (35 minutes) or grand old Bolton Abbey, 40 minutes away. If you're craving yet more Yorkshire cuisine, cheesy treats at Wensleydale Creamery are within 35 minutes' drive.

Further afield, have a peaceful ride on the Settle-Carlisle Railway, the spectacular 73-mile journey from Settle (50 minutes) to Carlisle via the Yorkshire Dales,  the North Pennines and the mighty Ribblehead Viaduct; this one is a bit of a must.

Must see

  • Jervaulx Abbey (24.4 kilometres)
  • Fountains Abbey (32.8 kilometres)
  • Richmond Castle (33.8 kilometres)
