Wood Nook, Skirethorns, Skipton, Yorkshire

Website: woodnook.net | Phone: 01756 752412 | Postcode: BD23 5NU

Our first camping trip of the year was three nights at Wood Nook campsite in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, a few miles from Skipton. We arrived on Friday evening with our trailer tent in tow, excited to kick-start our camping season – our first as a family of four. The approach to the campsite through Threshfields and Skirethorns is down a winding single track road with few passing places which could be tricky in a large motorhome, but is very picturesque and set our expectations high for the campsite.

High Laning, Dent, Yorkshire Dales

We took a last-minute trip to Dent to meet up with a group of friends who were visiting from “down south” and renting a local cottage for the week so we made the trip over in the ‘van and booked a pitch for a couple of nights at High Laning. The route that we took (coming in from Skipton) took us up over and through the hills on a winding road through farmland in which we had to stop several times to open gates, drive through and the close the gates shut behind us! It’s quite a large campsite, being split across both sides of the main road out of Dent.

Gordale Scar, Malham, Skipton

I had been wanting to stay at the Gordale Scar campsite since seeing it featured on Martin Dorey‘s BBC2 series “One Man and His Campervan” a couple of years ago and this summer I finally got around to organising a trip. Let’s be very clear about the main attraction of this site: Location, location, location!  Facilities are basic – easily the most basic of any site we’ve reviewed so far: no electric hookups, no hard standing pitches, no on-site shop (in fact no shop for several miles). All of that is easily forgiven though because the location is fantastic. Read the rest of this entry »
