National Camp site is sold out and full

Post by Pig Pen Love Machine » Sun May 21, 2017 20:37

Just received an email from the camp site Which reads

As discussed with Nigel who has organised the mini moke weekend with us,and I'm afraid we are fully booked for the weekend.

So for anyone like me who hasn't already booked there is no room at the Inn

Here it is, 10:00 Sunday night and I've only just had chance to get on here!! As things stood last weekend the pitches were all booked up BUT... if you were prepared to forgo the luxury of electric and such they did say they had an overflow field/area. I'm thinking if you were to say you really really wanted to be there and would be happy in that area we could probably sort something out on the day

Word from the campsite confirms that they aren't able to take any more bookings which is a great shame. However, not to be put off by the inconvenience the Pig Pen Love Machine reports that they have booked in at another site some 15 mins away from Cow Close. Details are:-
Akebar Park 01677 450201 a few miles out of Leyburn

Cow Close also suggested some other alternatives but you may have to act quickly as it's bank holiday weekend.
Crackenhouse – in Leyburn 01969 623192
Constable Burton – a few miles out of Leyburn 01677 450428
Lower Wensleydale – ½ mile from Cow Close 01969 623366 (Motorhome and Caravan Club site)

I will definitely be attending this year, and have booked at Temple Farm House. Unfortunately, due to prior commitments on Friday night, I will not be in the vicinity until late morning on Saturday 26th. So nearer the time it would be good to know where everyone will be, in order to join you for lunch. Looking forward to it.
