    Evening all!
    I know we seem to be having a meet every weekend at the moment (It seemed like a good idea at the time!!) But its nearly time for our Yorkshire Dales weekend. If you’re not heading off on our summer meet then a weekend of classics are all lined up for you.
    We’ll be staying at a campsite just a couple of miles from Brimham (31 routes up to Severe and 76 routes HS to HVS in rockfax) and will have Almscliff about 25 mins away (17 routes up to Severe and 41 HS to HVS in rockfax) There’s an abundance of great climbing near by and more stars than you can shake a stick at. For those wanting something a little more remote and quiet there’s a loads of crags inbetween these two popular crags around Barden Fells with a bit more of a walk in.
    Comment below if you’re going to be joining us!
    We’ll be staying at Manor House Farm, Summerbridge, Harrogate, HG3 4JS. http://www.manorhousecaravans.co.uk/
    This campsite tends to just do static and touring caravans now, but doesn’t mind climbing clubs as “they’re not any trouble!” So we should have most of the tents area to ourselves.
    Prices over the phone are different (and a little less) than the website, as they don’t usually entertain tents but she’s made an exception for us as we’re a throughly good bunch of people!
    £10 pppn; EHU extra £5 and accept tin tents.
    Free showers, dogs are by prior arrangement and need to be pegged/on lead as it is a working farm.
    Only got one tent booked in at the moment –
    About the Campsite…
    Manor House Farm is a working farm, predominantly sheep and horses. Because the site was developed from mature woodland, there is an abundance of wildlife both on the site and on the river banks.
    The River Nidd is only a short walk away near stepping stones across the river, giving access to public footpaths and the Nidderdale Way, 15 minutes walk will take you to the nearest local pub, the Wellington Inn, Darley and Royal Oak, Dacre is nearby. Both have a reputation for good food. The stepping stones on the Nidd give a wonderful play area for children, upstream being slow moving and shallow, ideal for dinghies and generally messing about on the river.
    There is no shop on site, but our local village of Summerbridge, some 2 miles away towards Pateley Bridge on the B6165, has an excellent butchers, post office, village shop, fish and chip shop, tearooms and a garage.
