Set in the charming village of Austwick near Settle, Orcaber Farm offers a haven for nature enthusiasts, boasting breathtaking views of picturesque countryside. The park’s strategic location makes it an ideal hub for exploring the enchanting Yorkshire Dales, with an array of walking and cycling trails at your doorstep and iconic landmarks such as Malham Cove, Ribblehead Viaduct, and the Yorkshire Three Peaks all within easy reach.

One of Orcaber's standout features is its diverse range of camping pitches, catering to various needs and preferences. For those seeking a bit of modern convenience, electric hookups are available, ensuring a comfortable stay without compromising the charm of the great outdoors. The well-maintained site encompasses modern amenities, including pristine toilets, showers, and a convenient washing-up area.

The campsite has garnered acclaim as a favoured destination for caravan and motorhome enthusiasts. Offering pitches of various sizes, including both grass and hardstanding options, Orcaber Farm accommodates vehicles of all shapes and sizes.

The emphasis on flexibility extends to camping pods, presenting an enticing alternative for those who crave the camping experience with a touch of added comfort. These well-insulated pods, capable of hosting up to four people, provide a cosy haven equipped with lighting and electric sockets—a perfect compromise between the allure of nature and the desire for creature comforts. It's worth noting that the pods do not include beds, so guests are advised to bring their air-beds for a restful night's sleep.

Beyond individual camping setups, Orcaber Farm excels in its provision of comprehensive facilities with the inclusion of electric hookups, well-maintained toilets and showers, and a practical washing-up area contributes to a hassle-free camping experience.

On-site facilities extend beyond the basic necessities, with an excellent shower block, separate facilities for men and women, and the thoughtful provision of hairdryers and electric points, albeit requiring a nominal fee. Clean and well-maintained toilets add to the overall positive impression.

Orcaber Farm goes beyond the traditional camping experience by providing a dedicated dog walk area along the river, creating a welcoming environment for pet owners. The presence of picnic benches scattered around the site invites guests to savour the tranquillity of the surroundings. A short stroll into the village rewards campers with access to a pub, a shop, and a play park, adding to the convenience of the location. For those in need of larger shopping options, the proximity of Settle, just five miles away, provides access to a larger supermarket.

For those seeking information on local attractions and activities, the Tourist Information point on-site is a valuable resource, offering a plethora of leaflets to guide your exploration of the surrounding area.

Amazing, will be returning

Booked a 2 night stay to do some hiking in the Yorkshire Dales and couldn't have wished for a better site. The toilets and shower blocks were pristine (with staff cleaning at 7am!). The shop had pretty much everything we needed apart from campgas but the staff were incredible directing us to no less than 4 shops locally that stock it, including directions. The pitches were large and clearly marked, electric hookup was flawless and had no issues, the views impeccable. We booked a weekend stay so we're thrilled to find out the shop sold fresh locally made pizzas on Saturday night and bacon rolls for breakfast on Sunday morning. Fire pits hire able free of charge, with logs/kindling/firelighters costing less than a bag of logs from my local B&Q. So many walks and hikes right out of the entrance of the site so don't have to drive anywhere if you don't want to.Genuinely couldn't recommend this site more and we cannot wait to return - see you soon Orcaber Farm!

Nightime remarkably quiet for a busy campsite.

Robertson, Sharon - 17/05/2024

My second stay here, and would stay again. We were on the main camping field with EHU. I think due to the lovely weather the site was busy, but thanks to how well the site is run, this was never an issue. We were really surprised just how quiet the site was on a nighttime, everybody complying with the site rules. Facilities are all good and kept clean. We ordered pizzas for the Saturday evening and these were really nice. The views from the site are lovely and there are lots of walk to do in this area.

Excellent site, clean and modern toilets and showers. A bit dissapointing 50p slot for shower though. Plenty hot water. Log burner hire and wood delivered to your pitch. Great pizzas on Saturday night. Well stocked shop. Great enclosed dog excrrsice area. Only a short walk to Clapham.

We’ve been here before as a family and really enjoyed it so decided to come back as a couple to make the most of the fire pits and sunset. Facilities are great, everything is clean and well kept. Appreciated the Sunday morning coffee and bacon butty from the on-site shop! Had a lovely walk from the site into Clapham and the Ingleton nature trail and caves.

First time

Mitchell, Tom - 16/05/2024

Other family members have previously stayed and were very impressed with the site. We haven’t camped before so decided on a pod to get a feel for it. The pod was fine but probably a little too small for 2 adults and 2 children, however it did its job.The site was well kept, staff were very friendly and helpful throughout the weekend, no matter the time of day. It was busy, particularly on Saturday but it didn’t feel like you were on top of one another as the pitches were a good size. The facilities were very good, toilets and shower areas were well stocked and cleaned regularly. Food was good, we preordered a number of pizzas and children’s meals but there was no issue with Timand the food was ready at the given time. The shop was well stocked as well with plenty of options. A good weekend, made even better by having a great view of the northern lights!!

Brill site. Very clear that the no noise after 11 rule is enforced and everyone respected it. Fire pits made it great as did the pizza.

Was an amazing stay. Great dog excercise field, added bonus watching the horses being exercised.

Musson, Sally - 14/05/2024

We stayed for two nights but wished we could have stayed longer.On arrival we were met by Nicola who was really friendly and helpful. Our EHU cable was too short so she lent us a longer one for the duration of our stay.The location was ideal, we visited Ingleton Waterfalls and Malham Tarn. Both were fantastic hikes.The camp site showers and toilets were really clean whenever we visited.It was very quiet when we stayed and we really enjoyed our peaceful stay.Will return.
