About Us

We love Studfold and we know that you will too!  The land has been looked after by our family for 16 generations and we are proud to be able to share this special place with our visitors .... There is nowt quite like it!

The Walker family have been custodians of this land for around 400 years.  Since c 1960 the cattle and sheep have had to get used to the tents and caravans and more recently the groups that use our highly rated Activity Centre.  We have always prided ourselves on giving all our visitors a friendly Yorkshire Welcome and make every effort to ensure you enjoy your stay with us.  Upper Nidderdale has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and we are delighted to be able to offer our guests the full 'Nidderdale Experience'. (See Utube clip)

The award winning Adventure Nature Trail complements your visit to Studfold and can provide great entertainment over several hours for the whole family.

As a family we have always been aware of the responsibility that comes with living in such a unique environment and we are fully committed to preserving and enhancing our wonderful surroundings so that our visitors, especially the younger ones, can also start to develop a love and appreciation for this beautiful place.  We are involved in projects to develop green electricity, embrace carbon offset, plant broad leaf trees, recycle and use locally sourced products and services.


So why not:

  • Enjoy a week or two in our well-appointed Holiday Cottage.  A barn conversion with all the luxuries of home.
  • Consider a permanent base in Upper Nidderdale.  Our Static Caravan Site will give you the opportunity to visit us as often as you want.
  • Stay on the Caravan and Camping Park with its new Camping Pod, this offers flexibility, comfort and lifelong memories!
  • Get a group together and use the Activity Centre, our four star rated bunk house can cater for groups of up to 30 in a warm, clean, safe, sole-use, self-catering purpose built building.
