Alan Rogers Review

Wood Nook is a family run park in the heart of Wharfedale, part of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The site includes six acres of woodland with quite rare flora and fauna. Reception is in the farmhouse, as is the small shop. The gently sloping fields have gravel roads and provide 39 touring pitches (30 with gravel hardstanding). All have 10A electricity and nearby water and chemical disposal points. There is also room for 31 tents and there are some caravan holiday homes to let. The access road is narrow for a short distance, so care should be taken.

The Thompson family are very friendly, always willing to have a chat, although Wood Nook is still a working farm producing beef cattle. The park itself adjoins the fells, with direct access from the top of the site. Nearby is the village of Grassington, with its cobbled main street and quaint gift shops. This is a delightful and peaceful base from which to explore the Yorkshire Dales.


Converted farm buildings provide dated but clean sanitary facilities which can be heated. Washbasins in cubicles for ladies. Roomy showers (in another building – coin operated). Laundry facilities. Motorhome services. Licensed shop for basics and gifts (from Easter). Gas. Small play area. American motorhomes are taken by prior arrangement. Internet access in reception. WiFi throughout (free).

Threshfield is 9 miles north of Skipton on the B6265. Continue through village onto B6160 and after garage turn left into Skirethorns Lane. Follow signs for 600 yds, keeping left up narrow lane, then turn right up track for 300 yds. The last 900 yds. is single track – phone ahead to check it is clear.
