Fox and Rabbit, Very Good CL

We know the area well, and looking for a Winter base, the Fox and Rabbit ticked all the must have boxes for us! Superb moorland location, just off main road between Pickering and Whitby, so great for getting out and about. Contacting the pub with our late booking was easy and welcoming, directions are good, big pull in area to left of pub that will get even the largest of outfits safely off the road. This first area is Summer overspill for pub, you pass through first gate into newest bit of site, with five very nice and tidy gravelled hardstandings pitches looking down across a large grassed area, out towards the Moors. Each pitch has hook up and picnic seating, one tap serves all pitches. Passing through a second gate brings you to the more mature CL area. This is more sheltered, surrounded by dry stone walls and a thin belt of mainly conifers. We had gale force winds during our stay, but the pitches were very sheltered. Big grassed area overlooked by all pitches, which are large and deep, each with a hook up. Small service area up near gate has tap, Chem Toilet Empty and rubbish bins. We were offered a key to toilet (small refundable deposit for key) but we didn’t need it. It’s there, but no idea what it is like. No MH drive over point, but a bit of hose will reach into Waste drain, and water fill tap is next to site service road. This second field is further from road, so quieter. Walk of around 200 metres to pub, which serves lovely food, but book a table as it is popular. Pitches are well away from pub car park. So much to see and do in area, it’s a place we return to constantly. But it’s also one of those sites that is just nice to stay around and chill out. Lots of bird life, probably deer, certainly rabbits and the odd Fox!😁 Pickering is a quick 10 minute drive away, for Co op and Lidl, lots of great independent shops and market. Castle and Church well worth a visit, Home of North York Moors Railway, with train links to Whitby and elsewhere. Petrol stations in Pickering and Whitby. Dog owners.......dogs very welcome, including in the pub. Lots of footpaths all around, and of course some wonderful walking and cycling. There is access directly into Dalby Forest for walkers and cyclists. Motorist entrance five minutes away. All in all, a very nice place to stay, and good Winter value at £15 per night. One we shall definitely use again.

Very Good

Just got back from a weekend here and this is one to return to. We would advise the owner to at least double the width of the road in front of the hardstanding pitches, this would save on having manoeuvre over the grass which when wet, as it was this weekend, is quite boggy. The pitches are long enough, we have a twin axle caravan, but again could do with been wider allowing the parking of the car on hardstanding saving the owners grass. There is a small amount of road noise but nothing that could be deemed intrusive. The pub has good well cooked food and drink with a menu that is varied and inexpensive. Overall this CL is one that without doubt we will return to...open all year....£15.00 per night including electric....what more can we say. This almost a five star review!!! Thanks

Whitby Trip

What a lovely CL. It was lovely and quiet with nice trees and grassed area with your own picnic table. A bonus been right on a pub site also. The pub does lovely meals and also has a seating area outside which was lovely on a sunny evening. We took a steam train to Whitby which was lovely and took in the beautiful views of the moors and stunning scenery. Whitby itself was lovely and well worth a visit. I would definitely stay here again.
