Select Section


This is a Certificated Site (CS). These select sites are small, privately run campsites that operates under the Club’s jurisdiction and can only accommodate up to 5 caravans or motorhomes and up to 10 trailer tents or tents, unless express permission has been given by the Club to accommodate more. They range from secluded Hideaways to fully facilitated family friendly sites, and are often found in locations where larger commercial sites are prohibited so you could be camping close to a beach or in the National Park, for example.

Aberford CS is a little hidden gem of a site, this is how our campers describe our CS. We are based on a small holding farm in Aberford near Leeds! ideal location for anyone wanting to explore the surrounding areas. We are 11 miles from Leeds City Centre, Wetherby 8 miles, York 16 mile and we also have Xscape at Castleford which offers a variety of activities for all ages. On the site itself we have a selection of animals, some which people can feed and others that will be cheeky and come to you for feeding. Our animals range from Alpacas to chickens and ducks and we feel we have something for everyone. We also offer a secure playground open 9am until 8.30pm for the children to run off some energy, we do however insist that your children are supervised by an adult at all times. We offer a 6amp electric hookup, toilets, showers, fresh drinking water at various points in the field and of course chemical waste disposal. If you fancy a change why not try our tepee or yurt hire all you have to bring is your bedding.

The whole site is lovely and clean.

This review is for North Cottage

The whole site is lovely and clean. Although we didn't need to use showers or toilets I did have a peep in. Lovely being amongst the animals. We had a fantastic time. Lovely and quiet. Went to the White Swan first night there and had some lovely food. Our daughter loved the animals even the chickens. The site is so peaceful apart from the traffic on the motorway but we got used to that after the first night. Will definately stay there again. It was our first caravan holiday and everything was so easy. The owners are lovely and there is plenty of space for your caravan and your awning without encroaching onto anyone else. Cannot say enough, loved this place and will be going back.

This review is for North Cottage

our 1st time in our caravan and we loved it. The site is fantastic for families very safe with a lovely play area, animals and a little woodland walk. We have an 8 and 3 year old and both made friends and played safely. Its very friendly and welcoming. The field is uneven but they provide wooden blocks to level. They also provide fire pits lovely to toast over! Very dog friendly, child friendly and very relaxed. We've booked to return and sure we will do many times. Some advise is you need 50p for a shower but now we know we will go prepared! lovely fresh eggs for sale too. lovely place.

This review is for North Cottage

We have just spent two nights here, and it's fabulous. I can easily see why it won best family campsite for 2013 - within minutes of arriving, our daughter was begging us to book a repeat visit: "...but can we stay longer next time mummy? Maybe a week, or two weeks. Or all the summer holidays." The site is a more or less square field, with pitches loosely marked with pitch markers. One side of the field is slightly sloping, but there were caravans there, and I didn't notice them having to use blocks. We were on a very flat pitch. Despite it being rainy, the ground held up well, not boggy at all. As others have mentioned, there is some road noise. But it's not a big deal. Facilities: usual water and washing up and chemical points. We also had EHU, 6amp. Two toilets, and one shower housed in a wooden building. Lovely and clean and bug free. 50p per shower, but that gives you ample time. There's a great children's play area with a trampoline, swings and climbing stuff. Then there's the animals! Pigs, donkeys, goats, rabbits, guinea pigs, fish and an aviary. 50p also buys a ball of food for the goats or fish. Eggs for sale from the free range chickens on site. And the owner has three lovely dogs as well. The owners were very helpful and friendly, and we had a brilliant weekend away and we will definitely be returning.

Came home yesterday from a lovely weekend! This is a lovely site perfect for families with young children, we have 3 children (8, 4 & 4) and they had a great time, playing in the park and seeing the animals. The owners are very friendly and will do anything they can to help.
