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 »

Elm Tree Farm, Holmpton, East Yorkshire

We visited this site for a weekend in late June 2012 after a week of terrible weather and with more rain forecast during our stay. Friends had looked shocked that we we hadn’t cancelled our trip and as we made our way over the Humber Bridge with the wipers struggling to keep the windscreen clear, we began to question whether we’d made the right decision.
