I love Appletreewick, it's one of the Yorkshire Dale's best kept secrets. From my first scout camp down by the river, to fond memories of evening mountain bike rides around the pastures, starting and ending at the New Inn, it will always be a special place. I've camped a number of times at Mason's Campsite over the years and while planning a weekender around 2 evenings of music at the Craven Arms, Mason's seemed the most natural place to make base.
It's changed hands since we last camped there, and while camping is very much what you make of it, the site, and more important its facilities really do make a difference.
From the moment I arrived, I was made to feel so welcome, the rest of my party was 3 hours north, so it was up to me to pitch 2 tents all on my lonesome, so had chance to explore and I was amazed by the new shower and loo block, brilliant. I must admit that I have certainly stopped in good hotels with worse bathrooms.
There's not a lot to say about a field and a shower block, but Mason's is so well organised, with clear, appropriate rules, a clear pricing structure, helpful team and it really does go a long way to making your stay the best you can make it.... Muddy knees and all.....
If you don't fancy pitching a tent, why no hire one of their caravans, VW camper vans or go glamping in their MASSIVE bell tent.....
