Buckden Camping


153 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.

"Small, friendly and welcoming"

Anonymous - Stayed with family, Aug 2019

Everything that could be done to welcome us was done. The pre visit email with pdf files were great. The fridge area was a little grubby, however the wash areas and toilets were absolutely fine. Thanks to Rob for pushing me out if the mud when the car had become stuck.... Everything that could be done to welcome us was done. The pre visit email with pdf files were great. The fridge area was a little grubby, however the wash areas and toilets were absolutely fine. Thanks to Rob for pushing me out if the mud when the car had become stuck. Juudging by the ground and his reaction, I'm not the first. Perfect for my young kids - the field is small and secure. Any more kids facilities would change the feel of the campsite. I liked the "quiet hours" too. Our first time camping and we've booked to come again next week. Great experience. Thank you

"fabulous weekend stay"

Anonymous - Stayed with partner, Aug 2019

We received a lovely warm welcome from the wardens who took such pride in showing us the facilities. A beautiful site in a fabulous location. The owners are lovely and make you feel really welcome as do the locals in the village. A little village shop and a super pub...

The owners are lovely and make you feel really welcome as do the locals in the village. A little village shop and a super pub if this is what is required. All in all a lovely relaxing break with lots of piece and quiet. Will definitely return and can highly recommend.

"Fantastic Site"

Mrs K Byrne - Stayed with partner, Jul 2019

What a wonderful site! The site was everything we hoped for and more. A lovely quiet site with stunning views from each pitch. The owners went out of their way to accommodate our last minute change to plans. They were incredibly friendly and helpful. We really felt... What a wonderful site!
