Upwood Park, Yorkshire
The park is licensed for residential homes, touring caravans, tents, motorcaravans and static holiday caravans. Seasonal pitches and storage are available for tourers.
Facilities include electric hook-ups, a shop, sanitary block, and a children’s indoor play area. For those who cannot leave the office or just want to keep in touch, there is WiFi on site, which can be accessed from your caravan or at the bar and playzone areas. Other on-site facilities include a friendly bar with live music on Saturdays, and great drinks offers. Food is served until late.
The park is gently sloping in nature, with tarmac roads and occasional speed bumps giving access to most areas. All specific pitches have parking next to the units, which are mostly on grass.
Public transport is available from the park entrance on a regular daily basis to all the surrounding towns and villages. The historic market town of Skipton is 12 miles away, and Bradford and Leeds are both within three-quarters of an hour.
Skipton is an attractive market town serving a large rural area. It is situated in the Aire gap separating the Craven limestone Dales to the north, the gritstone moors to the south, and the pastoral Ribble Valley to the west.
Just outside the Yorkshire Dales National Park boundary, Skipton prides itself on being ‘The Gateway to the Dales’. Its name comes from the Saxon word for sheep – ‘sheep town’. The arrival of the Leeds-Liverpool canal in 1770 brought industrial growth to the town.
Nowadays, Skipton is a major commercial and shopping centre, with its colourful market held four days a week, and a variety of interesting pubs and eateries.
Within a short distance of Skipton are the many attractions and the scenic delights of the Yorkshire Dales.
Haworth is situated on the eastern slope of the Pennines. The Brontës arrived at the village in 1820 with a procession of seven carts and one covered wagon leading up the Main Street (then known as Kirkgate) and finishing at Haworth Parsonage.
