Why stay here ...

My C.L. is a quiet site, on a working farm in the centre of a beautiful village in the Vale of York. Adults, children and a maximum of two dogs are welcome.

The site is located in a large field near the farmstead just off the village street, and in the same field is the village cricket circle and pavilion where visitors are always welcome. The pitches are flat, lawned on good draining soil, and all have electric hook-ups.

York, Yorkshire Dales and Moors, country houses and National Trust properties and market towns such as Harrogate, Knaresborough, Ripon, and Helmsley are all within easy reach of the site.

There are several golf courses and fishing lakes nearby and Alne has a large playing field with tennis courts and a play area. Route 65 cycle way runs through the village and gives access to York for cyclists. We are also on a bus route to York.

We have a small shop on site and there is an award winning village store in Tollerton (2m). Easingwold (4m) has supermarkets, restaurants, shops and banks.

Third visit to this great CL and not the last

I have little to add to my review of last year, as we have recently made our third visit. We are not generally repeat visitors, but Easingwold keeps drawing us back, and this is for us the best CL in the area. This time we fitted in more cycling, as well as a visit to York, via the convenient park and ride at Rawcliffe down the A19. Home Farm will be an obvious choice next time we want to stay in the delightful area north of York.

Great CL

We stayed here for 2 nights on route back from London. Very nice tidy site with all you need. The shower block costs a couple of pounds extra per night and is a short walk into the main site owned by the same people, something to be aware of if you don't plan to use the onboard facilities of your van. It is a nice walk through the main site to the block, everything is spotless and we found everyone very friendly. The walk also goes past the local cricket field which in my view added a nice outlook. Alne is a nice village, with a local pub that provides excellent meals. Plan to return to Yorkshire to spend more time there and would certainly use this CL again.

Nice CL

This is a lovely CL site. the only gripe is it a bit of a walk to the shower block. At £11 a night it seems cheap, dont forget if you have an awning or your want to use the shower block its an extra £2.50 per night. The grounds are lovely , we will be back.

Well kept and well run site in lovely village

Home Farm has a great deal to offer as a CL, indeed is one of the best we have used (this was our second visit). The site is level with well maintained grass, easy access, good facilities, and just the right size for 5 caravans. What is not obvious until contact is made with the CL is that it is adjacent to a commercial site, Alders, run by the same team. This is a little distance away, the access drive does not seem too busy as many of the sites at Alders are seasonal, and the CL being run in conjunction with Alders means that the reception process is much more organised than most CLs. The site is next to the working farm, which inevitably means a little pleasantly rural noise. Alne is a lovely well kept village, (very quiet apart from the main line railway a mile away) and the area is flat, so is perfect for cycling, while Easingwold must be one of the most attractive small towns in Yorkshire.
