Holidaying in the UK on staycation has become increasingly popular. This has lead to an increase in the popularity of campervans as an easy and practical way to explore the UK.
This month we look at the top 5 best campervan sites in Yorkshire. From luxury coastal retreats to farmyard camping experiences, they are all dog-friendly. Our list proves that you don’t have to travel far in your campervan. We’re so lucky to have such wonderful destinations right on our doorstep.
The luxury 5 star Scarborough Club Site lies just north of the Victorian seaside resort of Scarborough and is perfectly located for exploring the North Yorkshire Heritage Coast and the North York Moors National Park.
The site has every facility you could possibly need including toilets and showers, football pitches, playground, shop, small fish and chip takeaway, dog exercising field, and club wi-fi. Scarborough is a large family-friendly campsite with 290 pitches. It is a spacious site with well-placed modern facility blocks. As well as all the fantastic on site amenities, it’s just a 5 minute walk to the beach, and close to Scarborough Sea Life Centre and Go Ape in Dalby Forest.
Rudding Holiday Park is a family run site set within beautiful parklands. Located on the outskirts of Harrogate, this site offers a secluded escape as well as being near to rural pubs, bars and restaurants.
On site you will have access to a well kept golf course and tranquil spa and swimming pool. The site offers generous sized grass, hardstanding and supersite pitches all with electric hook up. The larger sites use clever planting and hedging to provide more privacy and come with water and waste connections, a grassed area and a car parking space.
The award winning Golden Square Caravan Park is set in the North Yorkshire Moors National Park. Golden Square is ideal for families due to the number of activities for children on and off-site. The site boasts 2 outdoor play areas, 1 indoor play area, crazy golf and a football field, so there’s plenty to keep children entertained. Golden Square also has a well stocked shop/reception selling everything from sweets and toys to homemade bread, cakes, along with alcohol, and daily essentials. Two luxury stone built toilet/shower blocks also contain a family/disabled bathroom.
This family run campsite is located in the peaceful village of Ingbirchworth near the stunning Peak District and Holmfirth, famous for the popular British sitcom Last Of The Summer Wine. Ingfield is a working farm, home to many animals including sheep, chickens, llamas and alpacas.
This site is surrounded by stunning views, excellent walks, cycling, and local attractions nearby. Ideal for families and couples in a quiet rural location with lots of things to do. The campsite offers a large well kept field with electric hook ups and fresh water taps at each. Plus an additional smaller enclosed paddock, ideal for family groups and smaller parties.
Hebden Bridge Club Site is a pretty and tranquil destination, tucked neatly away from the road and on a gentle slope which is terraced for level pitching. The beautifully-kept caravan park is enhanced by stately trees and a bordering stream, adding a lovely rural feel to your surroundings. Located in Cragg Vale, you can walk along the river Calder from the campsite to the village of Hebden Bridge where you will find Victorian style shops and a local craft centre.
This site is perfect for cyclists and walkers as the moors, the Pennine Way and Hardcastle Crags are nearby – each delivering breathtaking scenery. The site offers electric hook ups and waste disposal but does not have a toilet block on site.
