Forgot to mention this earlier but around the middle of September, we picked out a site within walking distance of Ripon centre that looked good for a couple of days away. I rang and they had spaces available but when I said it was for a motorhome, they said sorry we don't take motorhomes. When I asked why, they replied that the place where motorhomes used to pitch was now for static mobile homes and that they do not mix caravans and motorhomes. I assume that they used to have hardstanding but now don't and that someone in a motorhome has messed up their nice grass but it could be something completely different.
