Why stay here ...

Karen and Anthony Scaling would like to welcome you to Keld Knowle Farm. We are a family run dairy and arable farm that has been welcoming visitors for over thirty years. Our farm stands back from the road in open fields with easy access. The CL site is spacious with stone roads and some hard standings. The level field has a southerly aspect so you can enjoy the sun from dawn till dusk with views stretching for miles. Walks from the farm lead along footpaths and bridleways into the National Park and neighbouring villages. There is space to run around, watch the cows being milked or just sit and relax. Families welcome.

Keld Knowle makes a great base for all the local attractions, Pickering 2.5miles, Flamingo Land, North York Moors Railway. York, Whitby, Scarborough are all 40 to 60 mins drive.

A short 5 minute walk takes you into the village of Wrelton where the Buck Inn serves superb home cooked meals. A regular bus service connects to Helmsley, Scarborough, York, Whitby, Pickering. There are short walks around the village and a childrens playground.

Keld Knowle also offers farmhouse Bed and Breakfast and two static holiday homes to hire, making it a great place for family and friends to holiday together.

Karen's Top 10 things to do....

  • Take the steam train from Pickering, hop off to walk on the Moors or visit "Heartbeat Country".
  • Visit Castle Howard, one of the Treasure Houses of Britain. Splendour and Grandeur at its finest!
  • Walk through the fields to the neighbouring village of Sinnington. A picture postcard with school house and maypole on the green and river running through. A great place for a paddle and a picnic.
  • Catch a local agricultural show. With everything from terrier racing to pig judging, beautiful baby competition to the best chocolate cake. We know how to put on a "Grand Day Out"!
  • Stroll around the chocolate box village of Hutton Le Hole, with sheep grazing on the green, a stream to paddle in and the fascinating Ryedale Folk Museum. Another great picnic spot.
  • Drive, take the bus or steam train to Whitby to see the narrow streets and sheltered harbour.
  • Visit the historic city of York, walk the city walls, magnificent York Minster, National Railway Museum (free entry), medieval streets, Yorvik Viking museum, the list goes on and on!
  • Find the spectacular ruins of Rievaulx Abbey, hiding in a secluded wooded valley.
  • Wander around the market town of Helmsley with boutique shops and cafes.
  • Park your caravan. Turn out the wife/children/dog. Crack open your favourite tipple. Sit down. Relax. Listen to the skylarks. Watch the cows munching grass.

Super spot in wplendid surroundings

A simple, stunning cl in an excellent location. Friendly ane helpful hostess. We have just enjoyed 4 fuss free nights here without any hitches or gripes. A working farm with remarkably clean and tidy access despite the considrable amount of rain over recent times. Definitely visit again.

Won't be returning

Good points, Ease of access Hard standing pitches Views Not so good points Cow muck constantly across approach road, van and car caked in it. Road noise, eased off in the night, but constant in the day. Grass long throughout our 7 night stay, then on night 7 at 1800, the son comes out to cut the grass, maximum noise at wrong time. Owner conducted horse riding lessons on the CL field. Dog muck evident near fresh water tap, despite none of the people on site having dogs except one, who always took them out on a lead. Guess it was the resident dog, who freely wandered around the CL field. Tariffs are on the high side.

Ideal site for exploring the Yorkshire moors Scarborough and Whitby

Lovely little cl on a working farm, owners met us on arrival to ensure we had all we needed, lovely to watch the cows coming in for milking, it is a proper farm so don't expect anything fancy, the grass areas were very wet due to the large amount of rain however the hard standing was excellent and level. There is some road noise from the main Pickering road but it's not obtrusive and it would not prevent us visiting this site again. Recommend using park and ride service if visiting Whitby as this town gets very busy and they do have fantastic Motorhome parking.

Excellent CL

We booked here for 3 nights while touring the area but stayed for an extra night, as it was so nice. Excellent hard standing pitch for our motorhome. It is a lovely open south facing site, with views over the countryside. We enjoyed watching the cows coming and going to the milking parlour (milking can be viewed by prior arrangement) There is occasional noise from the A170 -usually from motorbikes or "boy racers". but generally very quiet at night. It is a very convenient site for exploring the North Yorkshire Moors , Thirsk ( Herriot Museum was fascinating) and Castle Howard (magnificent). We will be back!

Disappointed

The main reason for our disappointment with this CL is because of the amount of dog faeces we found on the site. When we arrived there was a pile in the grass between our pitch and the EHU which we managed to avoid and another pile on an adjacent pitch. Once we were aware of these we could avoid them; however, we were very unhappy to find another pile of dog faeces on the hard standing right outside our campervan door when we got up the next morning. As we had the site to ourselves we can only assume that the culprit is the owners or a local dog. We cleaned this up as best we could but left feeling very disappointed with our stay at this site.
