Caravan Club's £1M Knaresborough Renovation Reopening
By William Coleman
Fantastic news for the Knaresborough Caravan and Motorhome Club site. After a 1 million pound regeneration the site and all its new and upgraded facilities are now re-opened.
The site, located in Lower Nidderdale, has 79 pitches available, 12 of which are fully serviced, for caravan and motorhome visitors. The refurbishment has also upgraded the service points and shower facilities. Not to mention the new concept restaurant and bar.
The Wanderer Kitchen and Bar is now open. Which makes the site even more appealing to holiday makers, besides the idyllic Yorkshire Dales scenery. This stylish new bar offers a full menu serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. If you need a night off from cooking and want great service with even better food The Wanderer Kitchen and Bar is the place for you. The contemporary stylish interior design is complemented by the stunning backdrop of the sites natural surroundings.
The menu offers a wide range of dishes. Queenie scallops and pan fried sea bass for the fish lovers and slow braised boroughbridge pork belly for the meat eaters. Not to mention the perfect "Wanderer Burger". The sites new eatery and bar has been named after the first horse drawn carriage to ever pitch up which was the beginnings of the site. Back in 1907 "The Wanderer" set up camp at the site and the rest is history.
What stands out the most for me is that the produce used for this tasty menu is locally sourced. As someone who is a major supporter of his local economy this is something I feel captures the spirit of motorhoming and caravanning. Brian Morgan, Head of Communications and Events at the Caravan and Motorhome Club said: "We're so pleased to be reopening one of our most popular sites and are introducing our exciting new Wanderer Kitchen and Bar concept. We are always striving to give our members new experiences that excite and delight them and we're sure that both the redevelopment and the Wanderer Kitchen and Bar will do this."
With £420m being pumped into the local tourism economies by Club members when on staycations this is just another step forward in collaborating with local producers to keep small to medium independent business thriving throughout the UK. The new local sourcing concept is something that the Caravan and Motorhome Club is planning to roll out across more of their sites.
As of this article being published we are now in contact with Knaresborough Caravan and Motorhome Club site to set up a visit to review the site and all its new facilities. And I will certainly be having my three, or more, daily meals and a obligatory nightcap at the Wanderer Kitchen and Bar. So keep your eyes peeled for a follow up piece on this location.
Being so passionate about keeping local business and communities thriving and connected I would love to see the local businesses you support. So please feel free to share your opinions, comments and photos below.
