Why stay here ...

Our site is very quiet and secluded. It is set in an elevated position (450ft) on the edge of the Howardian Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and faces south. It has far reaching views over the Vale of York and across to the Pennines. The site is grassed and slopes gently and is equipped with ample hook-ups and water supply. Horses or cattle normally graze in the adjoining fields. The area is good for walking and sight-seeing and is convenient for exploring the City of for York, the Howardian and Hambleton Hills and the North York Moors. The East Coast is an hour's drive away. Easingwold (3 miles drive away) is a very small and attractive town with a good range of local shops including a variety of take-aways. Local pubs provide a wide variety of food at a range of prices to suit every pocket. There is riding, golf (Thirsk and Easingwold), fishing and racing (Thirsk, Wetherby, Ripon, York) nearby.

Lovely Site

Found this site easily, although it is a single track road, but visibility is good and other vehicles have time to see you. Site is sloping, as everyone else mentions, but we parked up by the hedge to maximise the view and had no difficulty levelling our caravan. We were welcomed pretty promptly by Pam who was delightful and exceedingly helpful. Didn't use the shower facilities, but good to know they were there. Plenty of recycling and rubbish bins as well as sanitary disposal. Water tap easily accessibly as were the electric hook ups. Lots to see and do in the area. We went to exlore primarily by walking and did some super hikes in the area. Lots of variety. Plenty of places to eat in the area and shops in Easingwold. BEWARE the nearest fuel stations are Thirsk, just north of Shipton on A19 or York!! Barn Owl definitely a bonus and the view is tremendous. Gloriously peaceful and no light pollution at night.

excellent

A fine site in a wonderfully tranquil setting. The shower/toilet block spotlessly clean. And a bonus - a Barn Owl flying over the fields in front of the site every evening, looking for his dinner.

Pleasant spot: good value site

Pam is a very friendly and welcoming host. Site very pleasant with good views . Excellent toilet and shower block plus info room. Great value for £12 per night. Only cautionary advice is be careful on the final access road from the nearby village green: it really is single track.

Nice CL in North Yorkshire

We stayed for 3 nights in early May and had a very enjoyable time - The good points CL is very well kept with excellent shower / toilets Owner very friendly and welcoming Great price £12 per night including electric Fantastic views across the Yorkshire Wolds Not so good points CL has quite a severe slope - although blocks are provided it is still quite steep Quite remote - reached by fairly narrow unclassified road Easy to reach places of interest inland or on the coast

Superb Location

This site must have one of the best views in North Yorkshire. From the Pennines in the west to York Minster in the south, the scenery is wonderful. The site is on a slight slope, but the owners had a big bucket of blocks available so it was easy to place the van to view the amazing panorama. Being only several miles from Easingwold and just off the A19, with a good variety of specialist shops as well as 2 Co-op branches and a couple of local farms nearby for fresh eggs, everything we needed was on the doorstep. Laundry facilities on site was also a great boon, particularly as we had been on tour a few weeks. York, the North Yorkshire Moors as well as the coast are all within an hour's drive. We'll be back!
