- 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.

Friendly Excellent location
Really good site, looking forward to our next visit.
All in all it was good but we felt we couldn’t have a nice drink with
From the manager...
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.
enjoyed our stay, looking forward to our return at the end of August
From the manager...
Thank you very much for your stay and look forward to having you back :)
