Overview

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.

This review is for North Cottage

We stayed at this site for 10 nights in September and for 7 nights in October whilst visiting family in Leeds. Really good location just off A1 and, although traffic noise could be heard, we soon got used to it. The owners Ian and Carol are extremely friendly and helpful, but were never intrusive. The animals were a joy to see - so well looked after. We did not use the facilities, but they all looked very clean. With the A1 and other motorways being so close, it is very easy to get to see more of Yorkshire. Wetherby and Knaresborough are wonderful towns to visit, and Leeds, Harrogate and York are all within easy driving distance. We agree with other reviews that this is a hidden gem CS, and we look forward to returning next year.

Very nice site but hard to get level This is a very nice site, it`s close to the A1 (which you can`t see) so can be a little noisy but you soon get used to it. The owners are very friendly and left us half a dozen eggs with our change! There are 2 toilets, a couple of urinals and 1 shower (50p). Lots of animals surround the camping area which is great for the kids as well as a good play area. There is plenty of walking and cycling around here and Lotherton hall which is about a 30 minute cycle away is well worth a visit and has a very large children`s play area and a large, varied and very well cared for bird garden. There is a very nice pub about a 20 minute walk away in Aberford which has a great choice of drinks and serves very good food. I`m sure we`ll be back.

Stayed twice in the last 12 months. A warm welcome from Ian and Carol each time.

This review is for North Cottage

Stayed twice in the last 12 months. A warm welcome from Ian and Carol each time. A beautiful little site. Highly recommended. A beautiful well managed & maintained site. Ian is a constant reassurance as he works on site building, repairing, cleaning or just looking after the livestock. An ideal location for all activities in West Yorkshire & beyond being only a short distance from Xscape, the Sculptor Park & The Hepworth in Wakefield. Ideal for visiting Wetherby, York or the East Coast or the large city of Leeds. A nice stay at anytime of the year. Would recommend.
