Pateley Bridge, day one

August 14, 2011

Looked all over to book a site during the kids summer holidays, they were either fully booked or very over priced. I eventually found somewhere reasonable and it was somewhere I liked Pateley Bridge. We booked three nights with the twins.


Riverside Caravan Park
Low Wath Road, Pateley Bridge, Yorkshire, HG3 5HL
Web Site

The site is on the bank of the river Nidd, a short walk from Pateley Bridge centre (about 500 yards), facilities are average but have been improved from our last visit in 2007. Pubs, banks and shops in the village and also two Indian takeaways and two chip shops. Good place for a relaxing holiday or for walking and exploring if you feel like it. One word of warning, this site does not take credit cards or debit cards, only cash or cheques.

Booked in on a hard standing pitch, I had worried about the ground being too soft, as we had had a lot of rain during the month. Settled in and had lunch before a walk into town, the girls went to play in the park while I did stuff like setting up the Sky TV.

The sun was shining and it was warm (unusually), I tried to get some photos of the bridge in Pateley Bridge but there are too many trees to get a good shot. After a quick look round and an ice cream, it was back to the park for the girls to play. I watched some crown green bowling as the girls played in the park and it is very different from lawn bowles but interesting to watch for a while.


On the way back to the van we had a short walk along the river and planned a longer walk for the next day, with a picnic lunch.
