Tour De France Camping - Tour De France
PLACES STILL AVAILABLE
You can be assured of a warm welcome at our pop-up campsite for the Grand Depart, set in idyllic countryside, yet less than half a mile from the town centre and local amenities. The Club is situated within easy reach of the railway and bus stations and is only a short walk away from leisure facilities and attractions.
No trip to this part of the world would be complete without a visit to our famous medieval castle or a walk in Skipton Castle Woods just off the bustling High Street, a past winner of Britain's Best High Street of the year with its cobblestone setts hosting a bustling market every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday and an unenviable mix of unique independent shops together with famous brand favourites. Away from the hub-bub of the market town centre just a short walk down the alleyways leading of the High Street you will come across the colourful canal basin where you can take a trip on the Leeds & Liverpool canal or pay homage to the statue of 'Fiery Fred' Trueman, international cricketing legend. All this just a stone's throw away from our Clubhouse. Skipton is said to 'have it all'- now we have the Tour de France as well!
Staying with us in the 'Gateway to the Dales' means you will be at the heart of Stages 1 and 2 of the Tour, with the Route passing within 750 metres of the Rugby Club on Day 1.
We can offer you:
- Comfortably large pitches
- Floodlit parking - with 24hr manned security from Friday 4th to Sunday 6th
- Separate ladies & gents changing rooms with communal hot showers
- Disabled facilities
- Licensed bar serving cask ale
- Clubhouse kitchen serving cooked breakfasts, home-made evening meals, tea & coffee & snacks
- Big screen televisions showing live coverage of Stages 1 & 2 of the Tour de France & World Cup Quarter Final.
- Free Wifi.

We will be opening the campsite from Tuesday, 1st July 2014. Guests must check in by Friday, 4th July, 2014 at the latest as road closures from very early morning on Saturday 5th July could restrict access to the site, and a minimum stay of two nights applies.
A single tent pitch will measure 4m x 3m and tents should fit into this area with the door opening and fronting onto the walkways as per the diagram below. Should your tent be too big to comply with these requirements, it will be necessary to book more than one pitch.
The cost per pitch per night is £15 along with a charge of £5 per person per night to include:
hot breakfast sandwich from 6.00 am
use of hot showers & toilet facilities including disabled facilities
comfortably large pitches
free 'Goodie' bag for every guest
You will be most welcome in our Clubhouse where you can make use of:
licensed bar serving cask ale
clubhouse kitchen serving cooked breakfasts, home-made evening meals, tea & coffee & snacks
free big screen televisions showing live coverage of Stages 1 & 2 of the Tour de France & World Cup Quarter Final
We are also offering Floodlit Car Parking with 24hr patrols, for £3 per vehicle per 24 hrs. It should be noted that whilst every effort will be made by Skipton Rugby Football to ensure the security of the car park, all vehicles and contents will be left at the owners' risk.
We must point out that our rugby pitches will be required for training and pre-season games immediately after the closure of the campsite and therefore
will be allowed on the campsite, and we would ask guests to respect this request.
Attached you will find the Booking Form so you can secure your place now. Pitches will be allocated on a 'first come/first served' basis and are limited, so please do not delay in returning your forms. Unfortunately we are unable to accept card payments, but bank details are included on the form and electronic transfers will be gratefully accepted. Alternatively, the form can be returned by post enclosing a cheque.
Further information, along with the opportunity to pre-book hot meals will follow nearer the event, but in the meantime visit our website http://www.pitchero.com/clubs/skiptonrugbyfootballclub/ to find out more about Skipton Rugby Club and its facilities and location. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any queries.
We look forward to hearing from you.
