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.

No more flapping guy ropes and crawling under wet canvas, this is glamping! Just bring what you’d normally bring for camping – except the tent. Cook outside* and enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner on the decking while you admire the fabulous view and enjoy the glory of the dale around you.

Wonderful find!

Siddall, Bob - 05/01/2023

Gill, your host, is just lovely. We stayed in one of the shepherds huts / camping pods and thoroughly enjoyed the warmth and comfort it provided (in December!). The facilities are absolutely adequate for the size of the site (nice touches like wheelbarrows to move gear from the car), and the location is ideal as a launchpad for the local area. We ate at The Buck across the road and enjoyed engaging service and good food (huge portions). We will be back with friends and kids for a longer stay in 2023.

Beautiful spot with walks from the door and wildlife everywhere!

Smith, Andrew - 10/11/2022

The pod we stayed in was well equipped, clean and comfortable. The facilities are great. Clean showers, clean toilets and easy to access. A really wonderful long weekend, spent walking, entertaining the dog, eating in local pubs and generally relaxing in the quiet. Gill is lovely, really welcoming and great local knowledge of things to do and other businesses in the area. Most of all though, really, it is a stunningly beautiful spot in any weather and a great place to relax.

Peaceful dales site

McGonigal, Iain - 24/10/2022

5

Pitching arrangements were clear on arrival, site was quiet with only one other van there. Our pitch gave a nice view over the village rooftops and was reasonably level, with electric hookup.Good clean single toilet and excellent shower a short walk over the road at the farm. It was fine when we were there but I imagine there is a strain on it when site is busy! Local pub even closer than the ablutions!

Great Hideaway

Ruscoe, Diana - 09/10/2022

5

This was our 5th or 6th stay at Buckden Camping. We love the views and walking in the area and visit whenever we are in the Dale's. A very special place.The owners are friendly and welcoming and always provide plenty of local information. The facilities are always clean and well looked after although it is a bit of a trek down to the farm from the campsite but not a problem. Site not really suitable for large motorhomes. There is always some improvement to the site each time we visit. The site wi fi is a real bonusThe site is a perfect get away

The area is beautiful and just perfect for walks from the site and the dogs loved the river .The facilities are spotless at the site and it is also a bonus that there is a pub very close by. I am already planning my next trip .
