We felt very misled. In the C & C book this site states there is a shower and wash basins.

We felt very misled. In the C & C book this site states there is a shower and wash basins. There are - but they are 10 minute walk away up a hill. The only 'facility' on site is dirty porta loo. This was so dirty that we chose not to use it at all. Not up to standard and we thought this site should NOT have been certificated at all. We only stayed because nearby sites were full.

This review is for Mill Beck

Beautiful location and friendly welcome but rough ground The location is stunning, just outside the village of Dent in one of the Yorkshire Dales' prettiest valleys, although Dent itself is now in Cumbria. There is a small field at the bottom of the hill which is the CS, and a larger, more sloping field above. The lower field is quite rutted in places and is awkwardly sloped so ramps were essential for our motorhome. Only a part of the field is really useable. The very friendly owner suggested somewhere to park but it was too steep so we ended up in fairly close proximity to everyone else. There were two hard standings but one of them was occupied by a caravan that seemed to be a long stayer, plant pots outside. We are pretty self contained so don't ask for facilities over and above fresh water and a cassette dump. There is EHU on the field and a porta-loo. This is a popular tourist destination so £13.00, with no EHU, was pretty reasonable but I have paid less for better sites.

Friendly welcome and a lovely view, but a 10 minute steep uphill walk to the flushing toilets.

This review is for Mill Beck

Friendly welcome and a lovely view, but a 10 minute steep uphill walk to the flushing toilets. A friendly welcome. The hardstanding we'd booked had been double booked, but we were happy to go on the grass. The field is next to the road into Dent, which is not busy, but tents may find this noisy. The field is uneven and so you will need to take blocks etc incase you need to level your unit. It is also boggy, so ideally you'll need a 4x4. A motor home had to be towed out during our stay. The view from the site is lovely, towards the hills and there are sheep in the next field so we loved watching the lambs. Even though we had a friendly welcome and a lovely view, I wouldn't recommend this site for families, as the toilets and showers are a 10 minute walk up a steep hill, at the farm and this is tricky when you have children, as when they decide they need the toilet - they need it straight away! There is a portaloo, but obviously these aren't flushing, so you can see 'everything' that people have done before you - not pleasent. Older / less mobile people may also find the walk to the toilets and showers tricky. Dent is a pleasent 10 minute walk across a couple of small fields and the George and Dragon pub was great to eat in. There are some great walks from the site too, which we enjoyed, in particular a 6 mile circular following the river.

POOR SITE, DEEPLY RUTTED, ELECTIC HOOK UP MILES AWAY - PORTALOO AND NO SHOWER.

This review is for Mill Beck

POOR SITE, DEEPLY RUTTED, ELECTIC HOOK UP MILES AWAY - PORTALOO AND NO SHOWER. LEFT FOR ANOTHER SITE Booked hard standing and electric hook up. Arrived to find only hard standing occupied by large motor home - been moved as they got stuck in the mud causing massive deep ruts. It was suggested I parked up near the portaloo! The electric hook up was too far away for my cable to reach and too far away to be safe. Turns out the field was being used as a bus park for competitors in the Dent race the next day ALL of whom would be using the one portaloo - I would have been surrounded on all sides by diesal belching buses!!!! No apology apparently it was my fault I had expected a proper hard standing with proper toilet and shower and a safe site with the promised view and not of the back of a bus. I left and found another site. Very upsetting when I am an older lady who travels on my own and I ALWAYS BOOK IN ADVANCE!
