    Not used the CS but have been on the rally field which is adjacent - the C&CC use it as a Temporary Holiday Site every year. It's a really lovely spot, right on the canal which you can walk along right into Ripon so you can leave the MH behind. If it's 'sitting-out' weather, you can simply watch the boats going up and down the canal. It really is a lovely spot, the view is actually better from the rally field than the CS as the rally field runs right down to the canal bank. Book it and enjoy.

    Not used Lockside, but we have been to the CS below, on the other side of the town. I think Lockside looks lovely, but have been concerned at its proximity to the by-pass.

    <Parkside CS>

    Owned by Mr Longster who is a very helpful chap. He does not live at the site, but visits every day. Quiet setting in trees and 'out of the way'. Highly recommended - we have visited for the last 3 years. About 20 minutes walk to the centre of town, and very close to the footpath to Studley Royal.

    You may know about this, but if you want to visit Harrogate, the Number 36 bus is a great service. It runs about every 20 minutes from Ripon bus station and is very well fitted out - nicer than a standard town bus even though it's a double-decker. Even better if, like us, you are holders of the bus pass for people of a 'certain age'.

    Yes we've been a few times for rallies. Nice walks both ways along the canal. We've walked many times into Ripon for a drink or to to eat out. So you dont need to have a car. Unless walkings a problem , of course.
    If your using the rally field ( down to the canal ) you'd need your ramps.
    Its quite a slope , and i wouldn't think of taking the MH down it if it was forecast rain , or already wet.
    We've been with the caravan ( more than the MH ) and managed to get up the slope tugging even in snow , which we woke up to one Easter weekend .

    Cant say i noticed the bypass noise.
    The fact we were rallying may of helped .
    Tends to be less of a peaceful quiet weekend:Wink:
