Akebar Park

4.2 (109 reviews)

One of the best touring caravan parks the Yorkshire Dales has to offer, Akebar Park is the most exceptional family-friendly park. We’re proud to have one of the best pubs in Wensleydale, ‘The Friars Head’, onsite. Not only that, but our stunning holiday park also boasts a golf course and great park facilities, making it one of the best parks in North Yorkshire.

Akebar Park has been run by the same family for over 50 years and is a family-friendly touring site, ideal for touring caravans and motorhomes, with plenty of space for children to enjoy and with outstanding views over the open countryside.

Akebar Park's touring site is a great space for your family holiday, offering grass pitches with electric hook-up, along with a well-equipped children’s play area. The touring field has toilets and showers, washing up areas and chemical waste disposal facilities. We have an onsite shop with basic supplies, and larger supermarkets are located within just a 10-minute drive from Akebar. What’s more, our staff are always on hand to help you have an amazing time – so it’s really no wonder that we’re considered one of the best holiday parks in Yorkshire!

We are an award-winning park and have been awarded the David Bellamy Conservation Gold Award by the British Holiday & Home Parks Association. The award shows that as a park we have taken steps to manage our land as a haven for wildlife; reduce our use of energy and water; reduce, reuse and recycle the waste we produce and support our local community. We have also featured in the Top 100 Sites in recent years.

All customers must report to reception on arrival, where we will be happy to check you in and let you know where your pitch is. Our wardens will be on hand to guide you and help you settle in. Our guests always enjoy their stay here, as we’re an ideal base for walking, cycling and fishing.

Loud neighbors

Watson, Ashley - 04/08/2022

Omg the 4 families opposite us in the poplars were ridiculously loud, rude and sweary in front of kids, even at 2-3 in the afternoon, that was before the loud party music that started about 3.30 until 10-11 at night. Thankfully we were able to move (thanks) Sympathies with the staff on site, they must have been horrified too. Hopefully you can find a way to stop that kind of nonsense ruining the trip for everyone near by. Apart from that, our kids loved it!

Bad pitch

Hoogeland, Amy - 01/08/2022

Bad pitch in spite of early booking and payment in advance. Main playground for children appeared to be the sanitary block, around, inside and in front of. No parental supervision. Especially during the weekend very loud and noisy groups due to family celebrations. Though clean several tabs in sanitary area were not working properly. On complaining to staff representative, only response was: you can call the warden.

Lovely site

Sinnott, Susan - 01/08/2022

Facilities are lovely and clean and well looked after. The pub restaurant at the top of the site is dog friendly and the meals and staff are really good. Would definitely go back and recommend it. Not a lot for children to do other than the play area but we only used it as a base for all the attractions in the area like forbidden corner, asgarth falls and the Wensleydale creamery

Family holiday

Both of the family showers weren’t working, no running water. We have visited before and haven’t had any problems. The water in the womens showers was too hot for our kids to stand under. Usually everyone complains they aren’t hot enough but these are so hot they burn you.

Amenities block impeccable, the cleaners, when seen, were polite and professional - excellent! Downside for us was overcrowding near electric points - electrical leads criss crissed all over our seating areas - other campers commented on issue too.

Gowers, Jane - 29/07/2022

Akebar is in a delightful location with Leyburn close by as well as beautiful countryside. The site shop staff were particularly helpful and friendly. Akebar reception also efficient and very helpful - a pleasure to be there. Good to see their amenities block so clean, regardless of time of day/night - seems Akebar have managed to oust the bad behaviour of former campers (predominantly children) around the toilet areas. Really enjoyed our stay, despite being a little overcrowded around electrics.
