How to Find Us

  • Howgill Lodge, Barden, Skipton, North Yorkshire, BD23 6DJ

The majority of our pitches have car parking next to them but there are a few pitches where there is a short walk from the car park. Visitor parking must be prebooked as there is limited availability.

Best route for caravans

Sat nav users beware! If you are following the A59 do not turn off until you reach the Bolton Abbey roundabout. There are narrow and twisty alternatives that your sat nav may try and direct you to, but we would strongly advise against this.

If you are travelling through Addingham follow the B6160 to the Bolton Abbey roundabout.

  • From the Bolton Abbey roundabout, take the B6160, signposted to Bolton Abbey
  • Continue through Bolton Abbey under the arch* and after three miles you will reach Barden Towers, an old ruin on your right. (* Max Height: 3.3m Max Width: 2.8m)
  • Turn right following the signpost to Appletreewick and head down over the bridge.
  • Continue for one mile and then look out for the stone track forking off to your right signposted Howgill Lodge.
  • Carry on going until you see the sign on your left for Howgill Lodge.

If you are travelling through Pateley Bridge you can follow your sat nav. Be careful when you are around 1 minute from the campsite as some try to direct you left up a small stone track just after a small bridge. Only turn left after rising up the hill and when you see the sign to Howgill Lodge. Follow the stone track until you reach the campsite on your left.
