If you’re looking to get away from it all then Langcliffe Park in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales should be on your “must-visit” campsites.
Promising peace and tranquillity, believe me you will not be disappointed. The Settle camping and caravan park really does allow you to relax whilst taking in the beautiful Yorkshire countryside.
You’ll be immediately impressed when you drive under the barrier at Langcliffe Park, where you are greeted by beautifully kept grounds and an imposing reception building, which exudes grandeur and refinement.
It’s no surprise that Langcliffe has a David Bellamy Gold Award for the time spent keeping the park immaculately clean, well-manicured and a wonderful display of green and colour – whatever the weather.
This rather swish campsite is just a mile away from the market town of Settle, and very close to the Settle to Carlisle railway line and Ribble Head viaduct. It might look to have a focus on holiday caravans when you arrive but drive on through and there are two great camping fields with hardstandings and electric hook ups for caravans, motorhomes and tents.
Limestone walls, beautiful trees and lots of green open space will welcome you here, as well as a top quality, award winning and toasty warm toilet and shower block.
But more importantly, it’s the reception from the family who own Langcliffe Park – father John and daughter Charlotte. From nearby Lancaster, the Smith family have owned the park for 12 years and take great pride in giving holiday caravan owners and tourers the very best of service and a very warm welcome.
Open for 10 months of the year, it means you can enjoy the ever changing seasons the Yorkshire countryside has to offer. We visited in October to film our touring caravan customers talking about why they trust us to insure their freedom. Despite falling leaves and autumn colours the walls and greenery zinged around us and was the perfect location for families, couples or those travelling solo.
A children’s play area overlooks the touring fields and there’s lots of green space for the kids to play. And, it’s not too far away to go for a paddle in the River Ribble – just a short walk across the field and you’ll find a secluded riverside beach. Plus the local swimming pool is a short walk away as it Settle town centre with its cobbled streets, cosy pubs, cafes in abundance and local shops.
There isn’t a club house or bar on site – it’s a rural retreat to really get away from it all and enjoy some family or couple time, or simply read a book or do a painting with some peace and quiet – allowing the beautiful surroundings to set your imagination free!
Langcliffe Park a truly magnificent gem in a secluded area of Settle but there’s a bus stop at the end of the lane if you want to go off exploring, and not forgetting the multitude of cycle trails and walks nearby, either along the river or over hill and dale. The Forest of Bowland and the Lake District are also only a short drive away and locally there’s plenty of climbing, potholing and fishing available.
On site facilities also include a washing up area, launderette, chemical toilet disposal and a motorhome waste emptying point. Gas can also be bought onsite and there’s no extra charge for awnings. Langcliffe also has an apartment available to rent if your non-touring friends or family fancy joining you on your stay.
