A peaceful place

Bank Top Farm
This site was spot on for us very large flat and peaceful access to loads of nearby places was excellent as others have said pub is next door slight criticism only 2 taps quite close together so if you want to be on the sunny side of field it’s a bit of a walk but apart from that highly recommend this site we hope to return next year

One of the best CL's i've stayed on

Bank Top Farm
We stayed here for 5 days in june and i would say the site is close to perfect for us. Its a large site that is very well maintained and perfectly flat. I find a few site that say they say they have wifi but it never really works but here it is a good signal. We didn't need to move our car once on site with the moors one way and Cropton forest the other the walking was fantastic. There is a pub at the end of the track to the field which is great for a drink but we walked the 2 miles down a beautiful path to the F&H in Sinnington which is a really great place to eat. Love love love this site.

Great base for seeing North Yorks.

Bank Top Farm
Just had a delightful wk on this site. Great pitches and plenty of room to set out. Nice base for having a drive into Whitby, especially over the moors, some lovely sights. Also ideal for taking the dogs over to Hunmanby beach for them to run in the sea, and we were lucky as the tide was in. The pup had never really been in water but she soon got used to it following her mum. At the back of the site is two fields on a gradient and the bottom one is a fairly steep one, but the Mother loved running free and chasing the pigeons and rabbits when she saw them. The two of them certainly enjoyed the exercise. We did venture into the Pub at the bottom but what a mistake that was, even though the staff were lovely and made you feel welcome, May I suggest the Chef learns how to cook chips and not burn them, ridiculous really when we waited as long as we did. It is a pub charging Restaurant prices for pub grub. Even after the failure of the Pub, we would certainly go back, it was very welcoming and Mike never stops cutting the grass as soon as a van leaves. See you soon hopefully, Bryan & Ann plus the Weimars

Tranquil Well Kept Site A Good Base For Walking

Bank Top Farm
The site has everything a CL should possess. The field is level no need for leveling blocks. The adjacent pub has good selection of beer from its micro-brewery however the pub food was just that Pub Grub, nothing to write home about. The TV signal is excellent as is the free WIFi. The route to the site is via the village of Wrelton and there is a sharp blind left-hand bend at the end of this village, note agricultural vehicles and lorries taking cut trees from the Forestry Commission forest coming from the direction of Cropton tend to take up all the road when navigating this corner. The walks from this site are varied and access by car to Helmsley, The Cleveland Way and of course Rosedale provide the easiest walks. There is no light pollution or at least minimal light pollution so the night sky is a myriad of stars providing there is no cloud cover. Nearest shops and petrol are in Pickering Mike Fisher was welcoming and as previously stated the site well kept. Yes we will return.

Lovely peaceful site

Bank Top Farm
Booked 2 nights at short notice and got the last pitch available. Lots of space to park your vehicle, everything we need, EHU, water in, black waste and ok to put grey water under the hedge. All grass but mown short and very level. There is free WIFI too as the signal in the area is fairly weak. So quiet, all you can hear are owls at night. The village is very pretty, some nice walks from the site and a short drive to Pickering, Hutton le Hole, Castle Howard and other the countryside around. The local pub is a short walk, The New Inn serves good food, is a micro brewery with its own real ales and is dog friendly. Take a torch, it’s dark walking back to the site, leave a light on. Will definitely go back , £12 per night.
