Why stay here ...

Set on the edge of the beautiful Yorkshire Wolds, a peaceful quiet setting with far reaching views of the Wolds, ideal for walking and cycling and dog walking, dogs are very welcome on the site.
Located just outside the lovely Village of Goodmanham with its Historic Church of All Hallows and The Goodmanham Arms Ale House with its own micro brewery and home-cooked food and close to the Wolds Way which runs from the banks of the Humber to Filey Brigg, just under 80 miles of walking in the lovely chalk landscape of the Yorkshire Wolds.

Also close by is The Hudson Way Trail a pleasant easy 10 mile walk along the old railway track through the heart of the Wolds from Market Weighton to Beverley.

The Yorkshire Coast is within easy reach, encompassing some of the UK's most rugged and charming countryside, from tiny fishing villages clinging to rocky cliffs to glorious stretches of sandy beaches and the friendly seaside resorts of Bridlington, Filey, Scarborough and Whitby.

The North Yorkshire Moors and Forests are approximately 45 minutes drive away with the charming towns of Malton and Pickering and villages of Kirkbymoorside and Hutton Le Hole and other pretty villages. Pickering is home to the North Yorkshire Moors Railway where steam trains run to Whitby from May through to October.

The Yorkshire forests are well worth a visit with a visitors centre in Dalby village. The Yorkshire Dales are also within an hours drive.

Towns close by are the historic market town of Beverley with its Minster, Racecourse and Beverley Westwood with a large market on a Saturday. Approx 10 miles.

Driffield the Capital of the Wolds a traditional charming market town with a market on Thursdays and regular Farmers markets on the show field. Approximately 12 miles.

The Historic City of York is approx 20 miles away, with its quaint cobbled streets and exquisite architecture, rich in ancient history. Well worth a visit are York Minster, The City Walls, The National Railway Museum, The Castle Museum, The Jorvic Centre and Cliffords Tower.

The port of Hull is some 30 miles away with a good shopping centre and of course The Deep.

Other places of interest locally are Castle Howard one of Yorkshires finest historic houses and estates with breathtaking views across the Howardian Hills. Sledmere House, Burton Agnes Hall and Sewerby Hall are also close by.

Very close to the CL is the course of the historic Kiplingcoates Derby.

The Kiplingcotes Derby is the oldest in England, having taken place every year since 1519. It is run every spring on the third Thursay in March. One quirk of the ancient rules means the second place rider often receives more in prize money than the winner. It is not run over a typical modern racecourse. A clerk is paid 5 shillings (25p) annually for maintaining it.

The Derby starts near to the former Kiplingcotes railway station and finishes at Londesborough Wold Farm.

The course takes in four miles of arduous farm track and field.

Riders must weigh in at ten stones, excluding saddle, horses of any age can be ridden.

All those wishing to enter must gather by the starting post by 11 a.m. on the morning of the Derby.

The winner receives the sum of £50. (However, sometimes it may prove advantageous to come second, as this   rider is the lucky recipient of the sum of the entry fees.)

The rules also state that if the race is not run one year then it must never be run again.

During the harsh winter of 1947 no one was daring enough to take part and so one local farmer took it upon himself to lead a lone horse around the course, ensuring that the historic race would survive During the 2001 foot and mouth outbreak the race was once again reduced to one horse and rider.

Come along and explore this beautiful part of Yorkshire affectionately known as "Gods own County" with lots of things to do and see in this lovely part of the world.

Shower and WC facilities will be available from late summer 2016.

Levelling blocks available.

Excellent site

We have just returned home after a weeks stay on this lovely site . Julie is a great host & keeps her site well maintained. During our stay we met some lovely people on the site most of which had dogs , our 2 Labradors loved every minute of our stay , as the site is fully enclosed we didn't feel the need to tether them at all . We came to this site as we wanted to meet up with friends who live nearby so it was an excellent location for all the things we wanted to do . The site is so peaceful & relaxing , you don't very often get that on the big club sites , will definitely return .

Wow!

What a fab CL! So peaceful with wonderful views, we were made to feel very welcome. The field is very spacious and completely fenced in -(even my tiny Jack Russell could not find a way out!) our dogs adored it, we watched hares and a barn owl from our pitch! The toilets and shower have got to be the best facilities on a CL in Britain-new and sparkling clean. All recycling facilities as well which is good to see. The location was ideal with plenty of walks around, village pubs and good access both to the wolds and the coast. A fab area to visit. Only one observation, can be quite windy/exposed if weather bad and no shade if very hot, but the countryside views make up for this. We are going to be hard pushed to find a better CL-thank you Julie.

Love this site

We received a lovely warm welcome from Julie, The site is very spacious with well maintained grass , and great views . The shower room with toilet and separate toilet are in a shed but do have a wow factor when you open the door. Excellent site for dogs. Location is great for walking and cycling, It’s quite near to The Hudson Way and The Wolds Way, We Parked for free in Market Weighton, walked to Pocklington on the Wolds Way and caught the bus back (2 + dog £8 ). Really good tea room in Goodmanham. This was our second visit and look forward to returning sometime

Woldsway CL - peaceful site with lovely open views

Very quiet and peaceful. Open views over the rolling Yorkshire Wolds. Excellent for sunsets! Great facilities. Do need levelling blocks (provided). Access road to the site is quite rough but manageable. Close to a number of attractions and market towns. Can recommend Burnby Hall Gardens at Pocklington (2 for 1 with CC Club card). Beverley for Saturday market and minster. Hull for excellent free museums and galleries as well as walks around the Marina, Humber Street and Pier for stunning views across the Humber and the Humber Bridge. Thoroughly recommended and will definitely return

Super Dog Friendly Site - Beautiful Location

We only stayed for one night, due to us wanting to be close by to an event we were participating in on the Sunday. But what an absolute gem of a place, an enclosed pet friendly field too. The pitches are slightly sloping but there's loads of room for you to position in the most suitable way for your unit, plus they have blocks if you need them. The shower & toilet were absolutely spotless & hot water available on demand. If you want dark skies at night, bright sunny mornings with wonderful views this is a great place to stay. Although we didn't venture far, we know the area fairly well, with walks & pretty villages in abundance, we will definitely return in the future for a longer stay - thank you so much for making us feel very welcome.
