About Us

Cow Close Caravan and Camping is a small, tranquil, family run site in the Yorkshire Dales catering for caravans, motorhomes and tents.

Situated in spectacular Wensleydale, off a small country lane with beautiful views, we offer spacious pitches and modern, high quality amenities which frequently receive compliments for their cleanliness! We aim to meet the needs of all our visitors, whether you just want to stay on site and relax or visit Leyburn and further afield.  We sell eggs, offer newspaper delivery and BBQ hire, we even have a small library of DVD’s and books.  We can also help you set up your pitch if needed. Dogs are welcome.   Our prices are fixed throughout the year with no extras for Bank Holiday visits!

Cow Close is within walking distance of the thriving market town of Leyburn, the Gateway to the Dales, which boasts an amazing range of independent shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs.  There are many annual attractions for visitors such as the Wensleydale Agricultural Show, 1940’s weekend, Swaledale Festival and the Middleham Stables Open Day.

There is plenty to see and do for everyone including walks of varying lengths and terrain, from a stroll along Leyburn Shawl to Castle Bolton, or a walk over moorland to Penhill to take in the amazing views of the Dale. There are opportunities to follow cycle routes ranging from easy to “Tour de Yorkshire” standard.  Visitor Attractions are aplenty in nearby towns and villages; markets, castles, art galleries and waterfalls,  Brymor Ice Cream, Forbidden Corner – a must for young and old alike – not to mention the Wensleydale Creamery for the infamous “Wallace and Gromit” Wensleydale Cheese.

We are proud of the warm and friendly welcome we extend to all our visitors and the flexibility we can offer to accommodate bookings.  We respect your privacy and personal space, but there is always someone on hand to answer your questions and offer help and advice on what to see and where to go.  We don’t think you will be disappointed if you choose Cow Close for your holiday destination.  We look forward to seeing you soon.
