The beautiful countryside around Bowland Fell Park makes this holiday park the perfect destination for walking, cycling, fishing and wildlife spotting. It's close to the Yorkshire Dales and just 30 miles from the Lake District so there are plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities and for taking in some wonderful views.
With an indoor heated swimming pool, a children's play area and a lovely bar and restaurant, the park is also within easy reach of numerous attractions, such as Bolton Abbey and the picturesque market towns of Skipton and Leyburn. There are plenty of places to eat, drink and be merry - the Thirteen Café Bar in Settle offers a great choice of beers, including Czech Budvar!
Choose from a two or three bedroomed caravan - we like the brand new Lifestyle Gold which sleeps up to four people with one double and one twin bedroom. It's centrally heated, double glazed and has a good sized verandah complete with garden furniture.
For a great day out nearby, Harrogate still has its Victorian Turkish Baths where you can indulge in some spa treatments before popping for tea at Betty's Café Tea Rooms.

Only problem was the door on the bathroom stuck and had to rescue the children and my husband a few times, this has been reported at reception, other than that a comfortable and clean caravan brilliant for the family.
The 'van was well situated with a very nice decking area, complete with a table and four chairs. One thing I think it lacked, but it's the same with most 'vans, nowhere to hang things! i.e. no hooks on doors, no hooks in the bathroom! Just a minor gripe. Overall, very nice.
A good holiday in a good location for the Yorkshire Dales National Park
Clean warm and comfortable.
Lovely caravan, clean & modern.

Clean and comfortable accomadation.
Lovely caravan. Clean and well maintained.
Really clean with well equipped kitchen and new appliances. Good size and nothing to fault.
At this time of year, my wife and I have always liked a week away where we simply 'chill out'. This is the week where we put kids/grandkids on the 'back burner' and just relax! Bowland is the ideal place for just that. Secluded, tidy, scenic, just the job. Everyone we came into contact with on the site were very friendly and we thoroughly enjoyed a meal we had on site at the pub. The site is ideally placed in respect to its proximity to places like Thirsk, Skipton, Settle, Hawes and, of course, the Lakes! Yes, I would highly recommend Bowland Fell Park!
Lovely site with great facilities, shame none were open and the pub only served food from Thursday
Beautiful place to stay lovely and quiet
Lovely place so very clean and we'll equipped
Very nice accommodation. Every where clean tidy. Drinks expensive, but good choice. Disappointed with one meal when we got it , it was not very hot. This wa put right but did put us off but would go back.
A good holiday in a quiet location. The caravan was clean and spacious and it was useful to have wifi. The absence of towels was surprising (although trip advisor had warned us of this) as most self-catering units provide them. The week we stayed was exceptionally cold for May and I would recommend paying more for central heating in spring and autumn as the gas fire was not really up to the job. Also reception closed at 5, so we didn't see any staff until we left - not that we had any problems.
Have never been anywhere before that has made us feel so welcome. The bar manager was a true true gent. He could not do enough for us. This guy alone sold the site to us. The food served was fantastic. We will definitely be back.
lovely quiet site in great location
This was our second holiday at Bowland Fell Holiday Park and we had a lovely time. The on-site pub is lovely and serves great food and the children's play areas are brilliant. There is a superb new farm shop on-site too. The indoor games room requires some refurbishment but as I understand it we visited during a period of transition from one building to another so I am sure it will be sorted soon. The only negative points are the cleanliness of the swimming pool changing areas and also the carpet inside our caravan really really needed a good clean.
