Buckden Camping

4.7 (111 reviews)

Just off the Dales Way, against a backdrop of steep, untamed hillside and within sight of the River Wharfe in its infancy as it winds down through picturesque limestone scenery. Dotted by ancient stone barns and drystone walls, this simple site is a perfect place to pitch up and revel in the glory of Wharfedale. A Certified Caravan & Camping Club site.

At the heart of picturesque Upper Wharfedale, not far from the source of the river, our working farm in the village of Buckden is owned by the National Trust and has been tenanted by us, Garry and Gillian Schofield, since 1994.

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 close to the river Wharfe and Dales Way footpath behind the farmhouse, and four comfortable, heated family Camping Pods.

With stunning walks to take your breath away, we promise you fresh air and fun. Waterfalls, limestone wonders, secluded ghylls are on hand along with a host of tourist attractions to visit within easy driving distance, so there is always plenty to see and do.

Our separate heated shower pod and pot wash area comes with a power shower and 2 w/c’s. There is further w/c, shower and pot wash facility available in the farm yard along side our camping kitchen which provides a fridge, freezer and kettle for your use.

Introducing our heated camping pods - No more flapping guy ropes and crawling under wet canvas, this is glamping! Each pod sleeps up to 5 people, for the ultimate in easy camping. Spacious and secure, the pods are insulated wooden huts which provide warm and cosy accommodation whatever the weather. The roofing material is designed to eliminate noise and enhanced by natural sheep wool insulation, it ensures the pod is warm in cold weather and cool when it gets hot!

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.

Our two acre site with a gentle slope offers five pitches suitable for Camper Vans and we can also take two caravans, all with electric hook-ups.

In a stunning setting at the bottom of a picturesque ghyll walk, this simple site is a haven for anyone wanting to escape the hurly burly of town or suburb life and get close to nature. The surrounding hills are breath-taking and this spot is your springboard to exploring a world that is truly unspoilt by the passage of time. (You do need to be a Camping & Caravan Club member to camp on this part of the site, but you can always join through us when you arrive for your stay)

Another wonderful stay at this campsite. Beautiful surroundings every way you look. Great facilities, especially the fridges, kettle and microwave. The plots are carefully separated so that you never feel too close to anyone else. Will keep returning to this site.

My wife and I booked a pod and our friends had a tent. Although only there for 2 nights we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The pod was clean and tidy as were all the facilities. It was a perfect spot for exploring the lovely countryside around the site.

Gill has created a little piece of camping heaven, the surroundings help, but her attention to detail and not "over filling" the site is brilliant. She's always helpful and kind, really couldn't ask for more. I only wouldn't recommend as i'm selfish :-)

Oldroyd, Mark - 28/06/2024

Perfect little spot, the perfect simplicity of the site is it's endearing feature, from the wheel barrows and lack of cars to the spacious pitches, it's just a delightful spot. We've stayed several times now and even though we like going to new places, this is just a gem.Well done Gill, and please don't change much, you've done such a wonderful job.

Midges are a nuisance

no solutions provided for midges apart from some lotion, it is enough to put us off.

Camping heaven

We've visited this camp site several times now. This review won't be very constructive because I can't fault it at all. The owners are so friendly and helpful. The surrounding area is amazing for walks. The scenery is first class. The pub over the road is brilliant. Great food. We'll certainly be back.

Perfect spot, lovely site

Dixson, Phillipa - 27/06/2024

We had a lovely three nights in a dog-friendly pod. A very warm welcome from Gill and Garry who couldn't do enough for us. Although the site was full, it was never crowded so very peaceful. It's a cracking location, with the Buck Inn across the road and the wonderful George at Hubberholme just over a mile down the Dales Way one way, and the fabulous Fox & Hounds at Starbotton a couple of miles the other way! Sure amenities were spotless and well equipped. Plenty of room in the shared fridges. My overall impression was that it truly mattered to Gill and Garry that we had a lovely time. And we did! Will be back!
