Alan Rogers Review

Peter and Valerie House are the friendly, resident owners of Ripley Park, a 25-acre grassed caravan park with an indoor heated pool. It accommodates 100 touring units, all with access to 10A electricity, on fairly level grass which undulates in parts. Connected by a circular gravel road, the pitches are marked or spaced (allowing the grass to recover). There are 50 hardstandings. The owners have planted 2,000 trees and these are developing well to provide individual areas and shelter. A pond with ducks provides an attractive feature (children should be supervised). In addition, 100 caravan holiday homes occupy a separate area. The park is situated at the gateway to the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

It is almost midway between the spa town of Harrogate and historic Knaresborough. The village of Ripley, dominated by its castle, is within walking distance, partly through a field of cows to avoid the road.
