“Great wet break!”
Reviewed 29 August 2013

First time camping for me so I don't have much to compare the site to however I stayed with well travelled campers who really liked the site and we all had a great time. The site was very clean and even though we experienced rain the shower and toilet blocks held up and didn't show too many signs of water and mud. It was quite quiet when we stayed with the field we were staying in only containing our 4 tents, a scattering of others and a camper van. The staff were very helpful and provided helpful hints on local points of interest and nice spots to pitch our tents.
Ideal for exploring the Yorkshire Dales area as its not far from Settle and there are waterfalls to see nearby too.
If you do go walking to the village in the evening its best to take a torch to get back as there are no streetlights or lamps on the campsite.

Room Tip: Pitch your tent on the rear field if you can, its further away from the main road so a bit quieter a...

First time at this campsite but will not be the last. We had a lovely time the site is spacious and the staff are helpful and very friendly. We arrived Friday night just before the rain, the site is well drained and stood up well to the monsoon weather through the night. The Atmosphear in in the small bar was warm and friendly with good conversation and friendly pets.

The facilities are cleaned regularly (once an hour at least) but I have to say some campers are not respectful of the effort made to maintain this standard and allowed thier children to leave the toilets in a mess. every effort is made to recycle with designated bins for glass plastic paper/cardboard and food waste (although some people cannot read)!

I take my hat off to the young couple who manage the site working from the crack of dawn until well into the night. they are doing a grand job. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

we have now visited dalesbridge as a group of 5 in our 9 man tent , no complaints as to yet , hence why we went a 2nd time , first time was in the hight of the heat wave we had we stopped for 2 nights it was rather busy at this time as to be expected with the sunshine but it was fine not cramped at all as there is such a vast amount of space your not on each others toes , and we are not very social campers we like our own company so it was perfect ,
2nd time was just last week in the rain !!! it was fine tho well drained areas and on our first night we had the whole field to our selves going into the weekend a coupe more campers turned up both times we were woken by noisy campers not following the 11pm qiuet rule , its fine we dont mind talking but when your screaming and playing loud music it gets a bit much , a subtle shout about respect shut them up !!
toilets well maintianed and are a plenty theres even a pub on site , we didnt visit it so i cant comment , the check in is well maintained and the guys in there are very helpful ! , i would definately reccommend this site !

Having been totally messed about by Langcliffe Campsite down the road (avoid!!) , we came across Dalesbridge. We arrived to find two of the friendliest people we could wish to meet. Helpful and polite at all times. Went out of their way to assist us in many ways which included locking keys in car being one!! Even lent us a hoover to clean mess in car!! Excellent weekend and we shall certainly be visiting again... thank you so much for your helpful approach and kindness x

The staff had left key n note for us as we arrived late, good communication. Rooms were very adequate n we had a 4 bunk room for just 2 of us.good price n great location. The only criticism would be that the cutlery was dirty n we had to scrub it before could use.also the plates/cups were sparce n old/chipped. I know this isn't a disaster but if we pay the money for something it would be nice to get it.overall I would recommend n definately stay again.

Well drained!!! Even the campers with 4x4 were having to take a run at the gate. The notice in the shower/toilet states "please leave these facilities as you would wish to find it", unfortunately I didn't have a broom, cleaners and disinfectant with me.
Everything needs a general good clean and lick of paint. This site is cheap for a reason and being cheap it attracts groups that families may find difficult to sleep near.

Room Tip: back packers or groups may find this acceptable

We booked 3 units for our assault on the Yorkshire 3 Peaks. They are clean & tidy for bunkhouses. There are plenty of extra loos & showers close by, though any time someone flushes you get a sound like an express train rushing by inside the bunkhouses. We visited the Game Cock Inn for food & drinks, which was very good, though the (English) manager was a bit grumpy. Good location for the 3 Peaks.
