Alan Rogers Review

The watermill buildings are a focal point for this park and house the welcoming reception and some of the facilities. Eight hardstanding pitches plus 90 well spaced grass touring pitches (45 with 10A electricity) for tents, caravans, and motorhomes are set in 14 acres of mature riverside meadow in three distinct areas. Management of the natural habitat of the park is carried out with conservation in mind at all times. The beautiful riverside provides a beach and access for swimming, canoeing and a nature trail. River fishing is possible (fly only). The Ripon Rowel walk passes through the park. The park is very popular at the weekends, and is very much quieter mid-week. Please phone to check availability.


Two toilet blocks, one with facilities for disabled visitors (doubles as a family room). Laundry room with local information and brochures. Ice pack freezing service. Shop (essentials and children’s fishing nets). Independent canoe hire, trips and courses. Fly fishing. Max. 2 dogs per pitch.
