Those who've already checked in have left glowing reviews. One camper wrote on Pitchup: “Everything. The toilets were nice and clean. I didn't get to check the pub out but the outside seating was lovely. Plenty of space on the pitches. Being able to park the car next to the tent is a must as it enables my autistic child to find his safe space and transition. Everyone was friendly, lovely atmosphere all around with nice views.”

Another person said: “Friendly welcoming staff. Extremely clean facilities (normally hate public toilets!) Well maintained pitches, location of campsite easy to find and close to Yorkshire three peaks. Our whole reason for the trip. Both me, my husband and children all loved the site, would definitely come again.”

While one added: “Dalesbridge is a great campsite in a fabulous location. Lots of walking in a beautiful area. The facilities are excellent lots of hot water. And even a lovely cosy bar on site. The staff are very friendly and the camp site is well run.”

Scoring an impressive 4.5 out of 5 stars on Tripadvisor, one reviewer said: “Great site with easy access to loads of places. The pitches are all pan flat and plenty with electric. Showers and washing areas are all sound. We were there over bank holiday and it was peaceful. Bar and pizzas on site. We had lovely pizza Sunday night. This is perhaps our 4th or 5th visit.”
