Touring & Motorhomes

There is no better feeling then hitting the open road  and finding somewhere to pitch up in the motorhome. Hook Farm is very accommodating to the diverse range of touring vehicles, from 7m RV’s to bikers with saddle bags. Our site has a selection of level hard standing and grass pitches nestled in the Lym valley, offering you a sheltered and relaxing break.

Washroom Facilities

Please leave the basins, toilets and showers clean and tidy and as you would wish to find them. Showers are 20p which is to conserve water and to reduce queueing times. This will give you approx. a 4 minute shower.

Vehicle access and pedestrian access must always be via designated roads or paths. The speed limit is strictly 5mph. The Lym Valley is designated a “Dark Valley” so the Park has restricted lighting at night, the use of a torch is strongly recommended.
