Hebden Bridge CMC Site, Cragg Vale, Hebden Bridge, HX7 5RU, Tel 01422 882531

To Find Site:- From south on M1 leave at junction 42 and take M62. At junction 26 leave motorway and head towards Halifax. Proceed through the town and follow signs for Sowerby Bridge and Hebden Bridge. In the centre of Mytholmroyd turn left over bridge. Take care as the section between the bridge and the Shoulder of Mutton Pub is quite narrow. Continue under Railway Bridge and continue uphill and the campsite is just beyond the 40 mph sign on the right. An alternative route from the M62 from junction 21 is to take the A64/B6225 to the A58 and descend to the site on the B6138. (Be aware that there are currently ongoing road works on the main road in Mytholmroyd which will cause delays at peak times)

This is a lovely little campsite about a mile from the village of Mytholmroyd. It is classed as a non-facility site which means it has no toilet or shower block so you have to be self-sufficient in that respect. It is open from early March to early November and accepts non-members. It is set in a valley, bordered by a stream on one side and surrounded by beautifully mature trees. There are 42 pitches, all but six are on hardstandings, the remainder being on grass. Some are divided by hedges and shrubs. A recent refurbishment of the site has converted six of the standard pitches to serviced ones with individual water supply and waste water disposal. The refurbishment has also provided one of the new drive over, open grill, motorhome grey water disposal point this is combined with the only service point on the site. Electrical points are convenient to all pitches and use CEE17 blue connectors rated at 16amps. TV reception is not always good so a TV Co-Ax booster system is provided which is free to use but you must provide  your own cable. During our visit there appeared to be a few issues with the TV system. The reception of satellite TV will very much depend on where you are pitched because of the tree cover. The site (as of July 2018) does not have WiFi but they are hoping to install a hot spot soon. I found the 4G signal reasonable for those who prefer to use their own data. There are no play facilities for children. Reception sells a few essentials and there is a small information room.

There is a lot to do and explore from this site either by car or by public transport. It is a downhill walk to Mytholmroyd of about a mile, but a steep coming back! There are bus stops outside the campsite gates with options to travel to Hebden Bridge in one direction and Huddersfield in the other. There are further choices of routes from Mytholmroyd including to Halifax and Todmorden. For shopping there are small Sainsbury and Co-Op supermarkets in Mytholmroyd. A must during your stay here is to visit Hebden Bridge itself which is a delightful place with lots of cafes/pubs/restaurants. The Rochdale Canal will also be an attraction and you can walk from Mytholmroyd and Hebden Bridge along the towpath. A recommended trip during your stay would be to Haworth and visit the Haworth Parsonage where the Bronte sisters lived and wrote during their tragically short lives. You can go by car but perhaps a more exciting form of transport is to take the Brontebus across the Moors from Hebden Bridge to Haworth.
