Touring Park Facilities
A holiday at Studfold really is the complete Nidderdale Experience. Our location in the Yorkshire Dales and range of facilities right here on the site mean that you never need to venture further.
If you’re here for a few days, relaxing on the site and taking in the views, with an adventure and picnic on the Fairy and Adventure Trail will keep the whole family happy, then in the evening you can walk up the road to the local pub for a meal and perhaps have a game of cricket or football on the field while the sun goes down.
Once here, you will find such a varied list of things to do, from stunning walks to Lost Earth Adventures, to so many nearby attractions. Studfold truly is an all-round holiday experience to remember. And of course, you are perfectly situated for simply relaxing in the serenity of the countryside, which we fully recommend!
We have 38 flat, well drained, grass pitches, most of which are approximately 14m x 10m in size. All of the pitches in the first field, and eight of the pitches in the second field, have access to electric hook up.
Our wide open, flat field area is perfect for children to play ball games and run around in. We also have access to the beck that runs by next to the site, which children love to splash about and build dams in. But please note that young children will need adult supervision here.
The camping shelter is a much-loved addition to our facilities. It is an undercover, lit area where you can gather to eat, drink and socialise when the weather isn’t behaving, complete with barbeque and pizza oven. You will need your own fuel here and we just ask that guests leave the shelter as they found it, and please vacate by 10.30pm.
Toilet and shower block
We keep our toilet and shower block sparkling clean; it has been thoughtfully planned out and built with dry changing and private wash area for each shower, two baby change areas and disabled facilities. The washing-up area is covered and has separate grey water and Elsan disposal points. Cloths, washing-up liquid and liquid soap are all provided, and you don’t need any tokens as all these are included in your pitch fees.
We have a small shop onsite at Reception that sells basic provisions, soft drinks, sweets, ice-cream, small toys and gifts. Milk is available if ordered from Reception the previous day.
There are many shops in the local town of Pateley Bridge, which is a 14 mile return journey, and supermarkets in Ripon and Harrogate.
Adventure and Fairy Trail
Studfold really does have magic hidden in its woods. Imagine holidaying in amongst the fairy folk and learning all their secrets! Our fun and mysterious Adventure and Fairy Trail is for the young and young at heart, with surprises and so much to see and enjoy, especially when lots more fairies come to stay for the special Studfold Fairy and Pixie Adventure event! Please book the Adventure and Fairy Trail in advance by clicking on the 'Book Trail' button at the top of this page.
There are many lovely, circular walks that start from and return to Studfold, situated right on the Nidderdale Way. Talk to us at Reception and we’ll point you in the right direction. Whether you’d like a few miles for your family with young children, or are up for a more serious ten miles-plus, Studfold is a great base for walkers of all abilities.
As you might expect in hilly country, TV and mobile phone reception can be poor, but a signal can usually be picked up a short walk away. Satellite only TV is recommended. WiFi is available via vouchers, which you can purchase from Reception.
A laundry area, with washer, deep sink and ironing board is available in the touring park. An industrial dryer is available in the static caravan park.
Dogs are always welcome at Studfold but need to be kept on their leads at all times in all areas of the caravan, camping and glamping park, static park and Adventure Trail, and walked off site, with all mess picked up and disposed of, including when on the footpaths through farmers’ fields.
Our bins accept all domestic waste as it is collected by Harrogate Borough Council and sorted at their recycling depot. We ask that barbeque coal waste is disposed of in the small metal bins we provide.
The Nidderdale Way Cafe
Run by Julia and her family team, the Nidderdale Way Cafe is a fabulous addition for Studfold touring park visitors. There is a lovely homemade range of breakfasts, light lunches, snacks, drinks, and ‘lumps’ of cake for you to enjoy sat inside or out, as well as a very warm welcome. You can also order breakfast and picnics from the cafe or by emailing Julia at firstname.lastname@example.org. Collection is at the cafe at a time of your choice or from the camping field at 9am for breakfasts.
