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.

Great CL

What a lovely CL so very well kept , the shower and toilet are spotless . Stunning scenery and Julie is really welcoming. Great CL if you have dogs nice pub in Goodmanham dogs are allowed in on a night when they're not serving food. This CL is probably the best value for money ever , highly recommend.

Simply The Best

We just love this site it is quiet and peaceful with good views all around. The site owner Julie is very friendly and helpful, she loves dogs so yours will always be made welcome. The site itself is clean and well presented and the new shower/toilet facilities are perfect. In order for it to be so quiet and peaceful you do need to take your car out if you want to visit places but there are lovely dog walks roundabout and you can walk to the Goodmanham Arms (excellent food) plus a small cafe (open weekends) in the village. Market Weighton is only 5 minutes drive away and here you will find a number of pubs and restaurants plus a selection of shops.

Lovely site

This site is a little off the beaten track and the sign could be easy to miss but it is a lovely place. The grass was cut it looks very clean and tidy. warm welcome from Julie and she had a bag of local information for us to look at. Julia is very dog friendly( she fosters springers) so our dog was made welcome and as there was only one other van ( also with a dog ) on the site our dog was allowed to play off lead. The site is all fenced in and very safe. There is no limit as to how many dogs you can bring. It is very peaceful and well kept site.

Peace with a capital P

We arrived for a weekend break.Ten days later we left fully rested and relaxed. We could not stop wondering at the fantastic views and tranquility of the area.Although you need to use the car to access the walks, the roads are quiet and the verges wide making it possible to walk straight from the site if you so wish. For dog owners I'll quote a fellow caravanner " My dog thinks it is in springer heaven." The site owner could not be more helpful and we will certainly return.

ONE OF THE BEST

We sometimes visit a site where others have said it's quiet, only to discover there is road noise. This site really is quiet. One of the best sites we have used in sixteen years. Watching the dogs being exercised in the field was just lovely. I can only agree with all the previous reviews. Thank you Julie for your warm welcome and well done on creating such a fantastic site.
