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.

A North Yorkshire/South Teesside site that deserves to succeed.

We spent 5 nights on this pleasant, newly (2019) opened site and a very welcome addition to the CL catalogue it is. Very spacious (important in these socially distancing times) and well tendered by 2 hard working owners. The site is all grass, and the owners did say it drains well, and is set on a little bit of a plateau so you can see for miles. Downside is when the wind blows through as it did on our stay. Not much shelter. All 5 pitches are well placed with 3 at the top end and 2 by the only hedge. Water points, recycling bins and elsan all in the bottom corner. Although there are signs asking you to pitch a certain way the owners are relaxed about it. The ground does slope a bit but we managed to find a level area by pitching sideways to the request. There are local shops and supermarkets in the pretty small town of Yarm a few miles away and buses run through Hilton village, about 400 years down the road.Wifi was fine as was mobile reception. The owners have a little farm shop selling their produce with an honesty box and plenty of locals were stopped by to buy bread or eggs or chutneys etc. The A19 runs quite close by which makes access to Thirsk or travels further north towards Newcastle easy. All in all a fine CL for the price of £12 per night.

Peaceful and relaxing stay

We arrived on a a rainy day, but found the site easily from the directions given The site seems well drained even after torrential rain. Martin and Fiona are a lovely friendly couple and the produce they sell on site is excellent, fresh eggs for breakfast is a bonus. The iste site is not too far from a good dog walk, and its and easy drive into Yarm which is a lovely village to visit. We will be back again.

Excellent CL,

We found this site as we were touring for 8 weeks and we have family in nearby Yarm, it is a new site, Lovley open aspect, Martin and Fiona have worked hard to set this site up and all credit goes to them, having a caravan themselves and only using CL sites they knew what a good CL should be like, The site is only about an hour from Goathland Heartbeat country,,and also Whitby both of which we visited, will definitely visit again,dog friendly however due to the nature of the nature of the farm rare breeds sheep and pig rearing dogs need to be understandingly kept on leads ,,,
