Beautiful,tranquil site

Granary farm is a peaceful,rural site which is convenient for lots of wonderful scenery (troutsdale,North Yorkshire moors,coastal villages etc,etc). It is clean and tidy with all the amenities you need. The shower and toilet are new and clean even if the old static they are housed in may have seen better days! It is clean and tidy though. The pitches are well spaced and hard standing and ehu and water are easily accessible. The only concern I have is that the signage is off the access road and not that easy to spot and we all know that moment of panic when we think we have passed the entrance and may not be able to turn around,particularly on a single track road! Just take it slowly and you’ll find it,access to the pitches is easy after that. Emma,the fairly new owner, is so lovely and I’m full of admiration for a young couple who have taken on a massive venture and are working so hard to make it work! They’ve made lots of improvements and have more planned I understand. If nothing else go and experience the peace and tranquillity of Granary Farm,it feels like the world has been switched off 👍👍😁😁

What a find!

This was a wonderful CL, immaculately kept and welcoming owners. The use of a static van as a shower room and WC setup was great. An honesty box for the use of them was a great idea and we didn't need to scratch around for change for a coin box. The van also housed a spacious information area. We have a camper and Glawning (bell tent, wood burner and drive away awning) which was a first for them but was wonderfully received and we even had awning/wood burner envy by other guests! The surrounding woodland provides lots of walking and cycling, with The Anvil pub within easy walking distance (1.5 miles) for local beers/wines/ciders and good food. Another one on our, 'must return' list.

Refreshing ambition of new owners

My wife, my dog and I stayed here in April 2019. It has changed a lot from the picture, as the new owners just starting their second season have already made noticeable improvements and have plans to upgrade some of the older features inherited on purchase. Emma gave us a very friendly and warm welcome. The site is very quiet with plenty of nearby bridleways and walks to do. There is a well-hidden link to a bridleway that link across to Dalby and East Riding forests. As as mountain bike rider I found the location very useful with interesting rides. You will have to hunt a bit for some of them, and you can forget the SATNAV in the car as they pick up the bridleways as roads. Fine if you have a 4 x 4, otherwise beware!. The site is relatively level with gravel hardstanding. Access is easy. The drinking water taps are handy. The grey waste and chemical waste points need upgrading and Emma has plans for that to be addressed this year. Until that happens, the grey waste is a bit further away and is lift up to empty into a raised receptacle that has no support. I would suggest emptying at half-full. The chemical waste is a little old and small and needs modernising. Having said that we have seen much worse, and they are both functional. The toilet and shower are found in an old decommissioned and re-styled static caravan. The shower is electric and the cubicle clean with plenty of room to dry off. It and the toilet may benefit from a heater on colder mornings!! We have met a lot of owners and travelled around quite a bit and this site is full of potential. Emma is keen and enthusiastic to make the site work and from their direction of travel it should prove to be very successful. The pluses far outweigh the negatives and we will hopefully return to the site and enjoy another great week. The quirky nature of the facilities make it different but until the grey and chemical waste points are upgraded then we can only give 4 stars. Thank you Emma for a lovely week.

A really lovely site

This is a lovely and peaceful site with good facilities. There are many water points and the static caravan which is used for the shower and toilet is very convenient. Showers at 20p were very welcome and generous. Emma was welcoming and came round a few times to make sure all was well. A couple of miles off the main road so away from the bustle of traffic but convenient for Pickering and also for Filey or Scarborough. A lot of good local information and a map.

Good value peaceful spot

We used this site for the first time in late July. It was a good base from which to explore Scarborough and the North Yorks Moors. Locally there was the linear walk at Forge Valley Nature Reserve which was also a good spot for dog walking. Well organised site with a clear site plan and welcome info on arrival. Shower, toilet and info spaces in a large adjacent portacabin were of a good standard. Owners Emma & Rob very friendly. We would return.
