Our campsite

Breaks Fold Farm is a quiet, traditional Yorkshire hill farm tucked away in the beautiful Washburn Valley, right on the edge of Nidderdale and the Yorkshire Dales National Park. We overlook the beautiful Thruscross reservoir and have access to excellent walking, cycling, fishing throughout the Washburn Valley.

If you want to explore The Yorkshire Dales, Harrogate or Skipton, we are a perfect base - fabulous views are guaranteed!

We have since opening developed and expanded the existing facilities and have now doubled the exisiting toilets and showers.

The pitches are basic grass pitches. There are no EHU – This is good old fashioned proper camping.
