Buckden Camping


120 Reviews

Park Description

We provide camping at two locations around the farmhouse hub facilities; a Certified Location Caravan & Camping Club site with hard standing for five units accessed through the Yorkshire Dales National Park Car Park, meadowland tent pitches for tents and trailers by the river and Dales Way footpath behind the farmhouse, and two comfortable camping pods.

The National Trust bought Heber Farm in 1994 to help preserve it as the last working farm in the village.

Tenanted by us since then, the farm keeps us busy with 600 sheep, plus cattle including a developing herd of Belted Galloways. As hill farming becomes less able to survive commercially in today’s economy the new herd provides a more viable breed, naturally equipped to live outdoors without the costs associated with indoor accommodation and feeding.

Garry is on the steering group for the Yorkshire Dales National Park looking at ‘higher nature farming’ practices as a means to long term sustainable farming methods that benefit the environment.

Opening Dates

After our second stay in this perfect small compact site we would definitely stay again. There was eight of us for the weekend stay and as ever the friendly host was there to make sure we had arrived safely. The site is quite narrow but this is a positive as even after setting us camp there was room for the four children to play safely and enjoy the views. Brilliant location for walks and access the the dales way. The toilet/shower facilities are great and always clean. We will definitely stay again and so should you!

"Stay with family and friends"

Mr D Wells - Stayed with family, May 2018

Perfect location for quiet camping trip with my husband and children and another family. Space for kids to run around and play ball (although if it had been full this space would have been much reduced). All in all a lovely place to stay

"Great location"

This site is in a great location with stunning views. It's a bit of a walk to the toilet facilities but we knew that so not a major problem. Shame that the local pub is closed at the moment but other good pubs are within a reasonable walking distance. We were only... This site is in a great location with stunning views. It's a bit of a walk to the toilet facilities but we knew that so not a major problem. Shame that the local pub is closed at the moment but other good pubs are within a reasonable walking distance. We were only there one night and didn't see the owners but they were friendly and helpful on the phone when we made the booking.
