Scenic pitches

General

  • Back-to-basics site in the stunningly scenic Yorkshire Dales
  • A 15-minute drive from Hawes and the Wensleydale Creamery
  • Dog-friendly spot with firepits, clean toilets and hot showers

Those who believe back-to-basics doesn’t have to mean entirely no frills will feel vindicated at Stable Fell Camping, a family-friendly site 15 minutes’ drive from the Yorkshire town of Hawes that marries basic stays with the comfort of cosy facilities.

Deep in Yorkshire Dales National Park, this scenic spot is a fab background for nature-filled stays – it's a wildlife haven, about a mile from Lake Semerwater and the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust’s nature reserve. The former will keep guests busy with watersports (canoeing, sailing, windsurfing and fishing) while the latter will have guests looking to the skies in the hopes of spotting oystercatchers, snipe and whooper swans.

The site is dog-friendly too (as long as canine chums are kept on-lead), so it’s a good thing that there’s a wealth of lengthy wanders and hikes starting from base, including setting off across fields to the lake, following the River Bain as far as Bainbridge village, and wandering the valleys of Raydale and Wensleydale.

If more of a laidback hol is called for, that’s handily sorted too: the site is car free – wheelbarrows are available for bringing kit and caboodle from car park to pitch – so peace is not easily disturbed. Each pitch comes equipped with a firepit for cosy evenings next to an open fire, and the clean facilities and hot showers will ensure guests feel fresh at all times.

Please note

No bachelor/bachelorette parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

No cars/motorcycles at the site. All cars must be parked in the designated area.

Only firewood purchased on site can be used for the campfires.

No music is allowed on site at any time.

All tents must be moved to a different pitch after four days in use to preserve the grass.

Please note that to prevent boiler damage, the shower block will not be operational in weather conditions of 2C or below.

    Toilet and shower facilities are good, basic but clean and no shortage. Good organisation, clear notice board at the entrance to the field with where you are pitched. Hand sanitiser on all gates and plenty of covid signs. Even have some walking suggestions, although the distance for the one we did was a bit short so it took us longer than we expected (we are experienced walkers and walk at a normal pace).

    Disliked: 

    Very exposed so no protection from the wind. Our tent was blown down and the one next to use broke in the wind.

Local attractions

Start stays with explores of nearby Hawes, a small town 15 minutes’ drive from the site. This is among Yorkshire’s most well-known spots, home not only to the Dales Countryside Museum, but the Wensleydale Creamery as well, where visitors can take part in tours and demonstrations, and catch up on the exploits of the man-and-dog duo that made Wensleydale cheese so famous. Not much into cheese? Sample other flavours at the town’s Raydale Preserves.

For a taste of history, there’s no need to travel all that far either. The site’s just 30 minutes from the 14th-century Bolton Castle and its bird of prey displays, archery demonstrations, wild boar feeding, and castle and garden tours. Slightly further afield are the follies of the Forbidden Corner, the remains of Middleham Castle (Richard III’s childhood home), and the ruined Jervaulx Abbey, all within 40 minutes of base.

To experience the Dales’ natural landscape, spend some time outdoors with pilgrimages to Aysgarth Falls (20 minutes), or dive below the surface at White Scar Cave (40 minutes) – the UK’s longest show cave – and Ingleborough Cave (55 minutes).

Prefer to spend some time away from the countryside instead? It’s 50 minutes from base to the large market town of Richmond and explores of its museums, castle, falls and art gallery.

Must see

  • Jervaulx Abbey (26.9 kilometres)
  • Richmond Castle (30.6 kilometres)
  • Easby Abbey (EH) (31.3 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Malham Tarn Estate (18.8 kilometres)
  • Braithwaite Hall (22.1 kilometres)
