View over the Yorkshire Dales

General

  • Family-friendly site in village used as location for Emmerdale
  • Well-stocked bar and function room on site
  • 10 miles from the Yorkshire Dales National Park and 11 from Leeds

Spacious pitches, scenic Yorkshire surroundings, proximity to Leeds, and a pint in the Emmerdale pub of the Woolpack all await at Esholt Sports Club, a family-friendly site set in the village used as the location for the TV soap.

It's all in scenic countryside on the edge of the Yorkshire village of Esholt, two miles east of Shipley, five miles north of Bradford and 11 miles west of Leeds. Esholt found fame as the original setting of Emmerdale: fans of the show will probably recognise several other village locations while here. (And whether you're a fan or not, a pint at the Woolpack is probably a top idea...)

The pitches and facilities of the site are within the grounds of Esholt Sports & Leisure, which has a well-stocked bar and a function room available for hire. Amenities for guests include toilets, showers, a launderette, a washing-up area and a chemical disposal point.

Esholt is well placed for visiting heaps of Yorkshire attractions, such as the museums of Leeds and Bradford, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Saltaire and the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Please note

No bachelor/bachelorette parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

    Nice, well maintained site. Club house and cricket pitch were really nice. There was a game on while we were there that added to the overall atmosphere of the place.

    The site is nice and relaxed and the owner was incredibly nice and helpful.

    Disliked: 

    Toilets and showers were OK but could probably do with a bit of an update but they were cleaned regularly.

    You had to act as if you was in a library music had to be turned of early and wasn’t allowed to laugh or have television on after 9.30

From the manager...

Hi Allanah

Thanks for visiting and we are glad you enjoyed the grounds,

We certainly do not discourage, music, noise, televisions and play-full banter as long as it is done at a reasonable time and with the respect of the other guests. Unfortunately at 11:15pm on Friday night, when everyone else was asleep or trying to sleep you were still partying, shouting and laughing. It was at the point where you were asked to keep the noise down and it was the same for the Saturday night.

For towns and shopping, Otley, Ilkley and Skipton are all nearby: Otley (six miles) is a Walkers Are Welcome town and has a number of walking trails that start and end in the town; Ilkley has a toy museum and walks onto Ilkley Moor to see the Cow and Calf rock formation (nine miles), and Skipton (18 miles) is where you'll find the Embsay & Bolton Abbey Steam Railway and barge trips on the Leeds-Liverpool Canal.

Four miles away is the famed village of Saltaire, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with several galleries and exhibitions including works by the artist David Hockney, who grew up in Bradford. There's an 11-day festival in the town every September and the Saltaire Arts Trail arts festival runs every May.

The nightlife, shopping, restaurants and museums of Bradford and Leeds are five and 11 miles away.
