Buckden Camping


170 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.

"Wedding Anniversary weekend"

I Agar - Stayed with partner, Sep 2021

We had a lovely weekend in Buckden camping for our wedding anniversary. The facilities and location were excellent. Very peaceful and enjoyable. A slight walk to get to the washing and shower facilities but they were very good.

"Worth the journey"

Mr P Barker - Stayed with family, Sep 2021

The tight narrow roads makes this site available for only tent and small campervanners. Therefore it is quiet, secluded, with views to die for. Great for walks and cycling, and a good pub on the doorstep. A longer than normal walk to the faciliti, but that's all part...

"Lovely little site"

Excellent little camp site. Facilities 5 star, spotlessly clean. Very helpful & friendly hosts. Nice little extra touches like midge repellant, fridge & tea making make a difference. Working farm in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales. Four good pubs all within walking... Excellent little camp site. Facilities 5 star, spotlessly clean. Very helpful & friendly hosts.

I stayed in one of the three camping pods at this lovely small, well -maintained site. The facilities are 1st class and kept very clean. Nothing is too much trouble for the hosts who endeavour to make everyone's stay as pleasant as possible. The village shop and pub - which does splendid meals- are a minute away. I can't recommend this site highly enough.

Ms J Grant - Stayed with friends, Sep 2021

We were very reluctant to leave a review because this site is a hidden gem - beautiful surroundings and very good site information etc. The only tiny problem was one shower seemed to leak everywhere (ground level) with too few hooks to keep stuff dry. It wouldn't put...

It wouldn't put me off going back though!

"camping holiday"

Mrs E Fry - Stayed with family, Aug 2021

It was a great site with wonderful views, there could have been a bit more room between tents and there was no where near enough toilets and showers for the size of the site. Every time we went to use them we had to queue
