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.

Spot on for the Dales way

Taylor, Darren - 03/07/2022

5

A lovely little campsite right on the Dales way has fantastic showers and a little room where you can make a brew, which is ideal if you are backpacking. If I had to pick a negative it would be that the top field is slightly sloping but that's it. There is no shop on site but there is one opposite the entrance and a pub just up the road. I would definitely recommend this site if you are walking the Dales way.

Top Spot!

Rice, Stephen - 02/07/2022

5

The camp site is in a top spot, the scenery is stunning and the facilities are spotlessly clean. I had a warm welcome from Gill and her husband who explained where everything was etc the parking for my motor bike was on solid ground(so often it isn't on a camp site).The local pub had good food and beer plus there is local shop that has all the essentials, however, opening times appear to vary according to the weather!I would certainly stay again

Campsite faciliries

Bunyan, Janice - 29/06/2022

5

A small, safe and friendly site. The site is quiet, no cars around the tents. Washing and toilet facilities are clean and well maintained. When the site is full it does cause pressure on these facilities. Another toilet and shower pod would be useful.

Ideal countryside campsite

Buckley, Hilary - 28/06/2022

5

Superb location if you love the quiet countryside. Wildlife and a variety of walks both uphill and along riverside, all from the site so no need to even move your campervan. Local bus service to take you further afield. The site is sloping but the pitches quite level and the grass mowed. Midges can be rather a nuisance at times. Good clean facilities. Only one shower (big enough for two) and toilet but never needed to wait.

A hideaway site that lives up to its name

Taylor, Stuart - 27/06/2022

5

A wonderfully quiet site in Wharfedale . Situated at the bottom of a small beck with views to dye for. Right on the outskirts of Buckden which has a nice pub serving meals. There is small shop in the village open from 8 till 4 except Wednesday but limited stock. Nearest supermarket is in Skipton 18 miles away so need to stock up before arriving.The walks around are superb even for oldies like us.Paul the resident warden was very helpful and advised us on several walks.
