This is a well planned site about a mile south west of Ingleton. The three quarters of an acre mown field is slightly sloping, we had to use a levelling block on one wheel. One side of the site borders the road to Bentham which is an extremely busy road for a B road. Unfortunately, this is where we were pitched, needing to be on hard standing (of which there are two) to avoid sinking into the ground.We found the traffic noise intrusive, even when sitting inside the van. On a warm day, sitting out would be rather noisy.
Having moaned about the busy road, the site is ideal for exporing Ingleton and surrounds, with views over open fields on one side and over the wall you can just catch the top of Ingleborough in all it's glory.
The owner is very friendly and enjoys a chat with his clients. He has organised the site well and there is even a shed with information leaflets in. Recycling of plastic, tins, bottles and newspaper is in operation.
Facilities are water, chem. disposal and electric hook-ups. Cost in 2010, £8 per unit per night. Good value.
There are plenty of organised camp sites to choose from in the Ingleton area, as well as a decent amount of members only CL's.
At Clapham Station there is a site, The Flying Horseshoe, by an ex pub, which was tremendously popular. Further down the road there was another site, also very busy.
Around Ingleton, there are at least four Certificated Sites, as well as organised sites, most being on farms.
Although this one acre site is mentioned as being level, to those in motorhomes it is not quite. A bit of manouvreing is required and in some cases, levelling bocks.
The well kept, lawned field looks out onto a maize field on one side and at the end where we were, a small paddock with a couple of horses resident. There are distant views of the limestone hills (weather permitting!) and there is very little traffic noise from the minor road behind.
The site has electric hook ups, which we had no need for but everyone else merrily plugged in, being unable to survive without mains electric! The £8.50 price includes electric but the web site shows two tarrifs, one with and one without electric which the owner was unaware of, wanting to charge us the full whack. In the end, we settled on £7 a night.
The only niggle we had was that the opening for the chemical disposal was rather narrow and required skill and patience when emptying!!
Well located for exploring all that Ingleton has to offer as well as Clapham, which has a pub.
Rural and quiet.
Be aware that this is a Camping Club Certificated Site, taking only 5 units. On the other side of the road is a Caravan Club Certificated Location, make sure if you have booked, you get the correct one!!
