Why stay here ...
Our CL is on a prime position on our small farm. We were both brought up as caravanners (ralliers) and when our four boys were young we used CLs a lot to give us cheap and safe holidays in the countryside. Now we have had the privilege to move to the countryside ourselves it is time to share our beautiful location and put something back into The Club. Hopefully as caravanners of 40 years each and members in our own right for over 25 years we have set up our CL in the style we would hope to find ourselves, smart, well maintained but easy going. Don't expect us to be in your face, we are around but know that CL users respect their privacy.
We are located in Hilton within the ceremonial county of North Yorkshire, close to the hugely popular Georgian market town of Yarm. The North York moors, Cleveland hills, the coast at Saltburn and Whitby all just a short drive or cycle away. We are ideally located for a stopover when travelling to Northumberland and Scotland. Teesside itself is always active and a hugely under-rated visitor attraction.
You can walk directly from the CL to the village pub or a 3 minute drive takes you to a highly acclaimed gastro pub (Michelin Bib Gourmand 2019). Yarm offers restaurant and pubs to suit all tastes and budgets.
Walkers, runners, horse riders all pass the door regularly however the largest sport is without doubt cycling. We are directly on the National Cycle Network Route 65, why not park up and cycle from the door, there are some great stops for coffee and cake on the way!
If fishing is your thing there are fishing lakes in the village.
On our farm, we are concentrating on rare breed animals and aiming for a self-sufficient lifestyle as far as possible. We have sheep, goats, pigs and hens. The sheep currently include Shetland, Hampshire Downs and Herdwicks and we are in the early stages of developing our use of their wool. The pigs vary but have included Gloucestershire Old Spots and Saddlebacks. Our goats are Angoras producing the highly sought after Mohair. We also breed some of the rarest goats in the UK, Nigoras which are a dwarf breed with lustrous hair very similar to Cashmere.
We have products from all the animals available for purchase, including meat, wool and mohair products, eggs, jams, chutneys and curds. We should be able to set you up with all the ingredients for a good BBQ, but do call ahead.
It is essential that our livestock are not put at risk so we are relying on you as responsible members of The Club to keep dogs on leads at all times thus enabling us to allow the inclusion of dogs in your holiday. There is the facility to walk dogs on a pleasant walk just a few hundred yards away.
We look forward to meeting friends new and old.
