Select Section

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.

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.

Fantastic site. The owners are very welcoming and helpful.

Fantastic site. The owners are very welcoming and helpful. The animals and play area make it perfect for families with children. Despite the proximity to the motorway road noise is not intrusive. We look forward to returning again in the near future. Would highly recommend this site.

Great site, friendly owners but too close to the motorway. A lot of traffic noise.

This review is for North Cottage

Great site, friendly owners but too close to the motorway. A lot of traffic noise. Very nice site, friendly and has a small farm with a variety of animals. Although I did not use the facilities, one having a quick look they seemed clean and in good condition. Stayed for just under two weeks, but as the back of the site is only around 100 metres from the M1/A1 junction, it was very noisy non stop throughout the night. Could feel the vibrations from the lorries in the caravan and ended up with migraine and unable to sleep for a few nights towards the end of the stay. But if traffic does not bother you then this is a great site for a stopover. Close to Leeds and plenty to do in the area. site is advertised as 6amp - but on looking at the hookup units I found it to be 16amp and was able to run my electric heater and kettle together which I would not even be able to do on a 10amp site. There are a number of shops nearby, including Tesco in Garforth and a larger selections of shops just down the M1 near Swillington.
