Why stay here ...
The Eskdalegate Farm CL site is on a working farm on the edge of the North Yorkshire National Park with panoramic views across the Esk Valley. Relax and watch the steam trains pass along the bottom of the valley alongside the River Esk. All pitches have their own electric hook ups.
There are lots of local walks including a fabulous walk to Falling Foss where you can rest up at a delightful café. For a short walk through my farm you can visit the site of the Legendary “Penny Hedge” hermitage. Easy access to Whitby and the coast which is only 4 miles away. Sleights is only a short walk away and as well as Botham’s bakery, Radford’s butchers and the local shop there are also two pubs one each end of the village, the Plough being only a 5 minutes walk away from my site.
There are lots of local activities including Dalby Forest’s “Go Ape” for the more adventurous, with the North Yorkshire Moors railway stations at Grosmont and Goathland, “Aidensfield” to Heart Beat fans. Ruswarp is close by and has boating on the river, a café, a pub, and its own miniature railway) Cycle the Cinder track which runs along the old railway track from Whitby to Scarborough passing over the Whitby viaduct, if you don’t want to go as far as Scarborough there is a nice café along the route just off the track at Hawsker or a little further along brings you to Robin Hood’s Bay.
For day trips afield why not visit the local coastal villages of Runswick Bay and Robin Hood’s Bay to name just two of them. Further afield are Middlesbrough (why not take the train, this line is one of the most scenic in the country and is definitely one of Network Rails hidden treasures). Pickering, Helmsley, Malton, York and Scarborough are all worth a visit.
There are regular Buses into Whitby from the end of the road and the “Coast liner” that travels through Goathland, Pickering, Kirby Misperton (Flamingo Land Theme Park), Malton and York - Britain's most scenic bus route. Also you can hail the local bus from the farm gate that will take you to either Whitby via Ruswarp or the other way to all the local villages along the Esk Valley.
