Bolton Abbey Caravan Club Site (formerly Strid Wood) is one of the prettiest locations on the network – it is part of the Bolton Abbey estate and located in an open glade surrounded by woodland and the glorious Yorkshire Dales. Within the boundaries of the estate are some 75 miles of footpaths through moors, woods and farmlands, all easily accessible from the caravan site. The ruins of the 12th century Bolton Priory stand on a placid curve of the River Wharf and have been painted by Turner and Landseer as well as earning praise from Wordsworth.
Skipton is a mere 8½ miles away from the Bolton Abbey Caravan Club Site (formerly Strid Wood) and is an historic town with traditional cobbled streets and a picturesque canal to wander along. There is also a regular street market and well preserved medieval fortress, which are a must for visitors to the caravan park. Skipton also serves as the starting point for one of England’s most beautiful train journeys – the Settle to Carlisle line.
