The Cud Life Caravan and Camping Site

And Site Hire

Our lovely little camping and caravan site opened in May 2013 and has proved very popular due to the fantastic location and facilities.  We are now a certified location with the Caravan and Camping Club.

To keep the tranquility of our little site we cannot allow group bookings during the normal camping season. However, we are happy to hire out the whole site, with or without the cottages, for family and friend groups and events such as weddings, christenings and so on. Prices on request.

We have space for up to FIVE touring caravans or motorhomes and TEN tents. We are a friendly, welcoming site where you can meet fellow campers around our central fire pit (wood provided for a Saturday night) and seating (large logs!) but if you don’t wish to join in you won’t be disturbed as we have a 10.30pm quiet rule which is enforced by us and our lovely regular guests. If you are nice, respectful people, we can offer you a lovely time and opportunity to live the country good life.

Location, Location, Location! 

As our reviews have shown, we are ideally situated in beautiful countryside with stunning views from the campsite but with very easy access to villages and towns.  Harrogate town centre is just a 5 minute drive or a 35-45 minute walk. Frequent buses pick up at the end of our lane and taxis are widely available. You can leave your car or motorhome and still get about with ease – there is even a local bike hire company. 

  • Public footpaths run through the farm and we have printed walks of the local area available free of charge and walking books for sale in our onsite shop.

  • Our shower and toilet block is unisex with fully-enclosed shower pods and large changing rooms, making it ideal for families and individuals.

  • The block also has a baby-changing unit, heated towel rails, non-slip flooring, wide doors, wash basins and soap dispensers, hand dryers, toilet rolls, shaver sockets, hairdryer and straighteners. (Is this camping or glamping?!) You can have the radio on too, to sing out in the shower if you wish!

  • The washing-up sinks and draining racks have the best ever views across the fields down to the River Nidd, making a boring job the best it can be.

  • All pitches include electric hook-up. 

Our onsite Cookshop and Coffeeshop

logo red  and The Udder Coffeeshop serve teas, coffees, milkshakes (in glass wellies of course!) homemade scones and cakes with the cookshop selling everything you could ever need for your kitchen at home or in your caravan!

Open every Thursday, Friday and Saturday 10-6pm, (last orders in the coffeeshop are at 5pm)
