Not sure if either of the two in / near Masham are open. One is The Station, just outside Masham 'town', the other is behind the Black Swan at Fearby and I'm sure I've seen caravans occupied over the festive season. It's a nice pub with good food too and on a clear day the views are fabulous (I know I live on t'other side of the hill)

The Black Swan has the best views, the Old Station is flatter!

If you do decide to visit, let me know, we could meet up :ok

That's weird, I'm sure I've seen she'd pullers there over the festive season. Ho hum, I'll ask a friend who is a local at the pub.

Earlier in the year we stayed a night here

http://www.campingintheforest.co.uk/eng ... e-campsite

Just checked and its open all year, nice area, lots to see, walks from the site if you have dogs, sheltered too. Have a very small cafe type place, good enough showers etc and flat hard standings. Oh and EHU too if you dont have propex or similar (like us) Anyway, an idea.

There are also some CL type sites in our area, might be worth a look on the C&CC web site?

Good luck, if you get really stuck, we have a bit of a drive and a heck of a view but may be snowed in by then :shock:

Spiers house looks great. I'm going to have to have a serious think about that for £35 per night though.

We too are heading off that way on the 27th. I'm a member of the caravan club (don't ask) but I don't recall there being any sites open in that area.

We use spiers a lot, it is excellent - the facilities are great - even a bar in the shop and a fish and chip van on a Friday night. We don't pay that much though. Best bit, it is on edge of cropton forest for lovely walks and cycling. I would say treat yourselves, you won't be disappointed!

Ok, so
For folks looking for the Dales between Christmas and new year and finding it hard. I have friends who own this place

http://www.thebivouac.co.uk which isn't a camp site, BUT, I asked nicely and they would be happy for one or two VW's to pitch up on their car park. They don't usually allow over night camping cos they have shacks, yurts and a bunk barn. They also have fab showers, loos etc and if it gets really rough you could opt for a night in the bunk barn! They also don't have EHU but I know they have ONE electric socket in the yurt field, near enough the car park to run a lead to I think.

It's a fab place, the cafe is just lovely, wood burner, family room for littlies and lovely coffee, cake and food. They have a bar also! It's 3 miles outside Masham, or so and next to the Druids Temple and woodland. The temple is a standing stone circle and stones, but is a folly, not a real Druids one! There's lots of walking around, Masham has two breweries, cafes etc and its easy reach of the North Yorkshire Moors etc too.

Anyhow, enough selling my home area :oops: but if you are stuck, ring Sam or Beth at The Bivouac and see what they can offer.

You are very welcome, it is a lovely place, so if you can, visit even if only for coffee and cake sometime.

Enjoy Spiers. We only stayed one night but it was lovely. They also have shacks with heating and plumbing if it gets a bit rough :idea

We love to walk round the forest, calling in for a pint at the brewery and then walking back to the site. They only serve food from 12-2pm then again at 6pm, which caught us out when I fancied some chips!!!

Very jealous :-)
