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.

Lovely views .....but

Eskdalegate Farm
The views from the site are great. We were on the bottom pitches 1&2 and all gravel no grass around. Arrival time of 3.00 pm and departure time of 10.00am seemed a bit harsh though. By the time you have set up completed you have lost most of the first day!!!! Leaving in the morning means you have little time to get breakfast and pack away by 10.00am So for two nights price is £35.00 with no WC facilities seems high. Hope this is constructive criticism and the "rules" can be relaxed a bit.

Convenient site and quiet.

Eskdalegate Farm
We enjoyed our stay at this quiet site. Bit confusing at start as we didn't know which pitch we had. Had hard standing pitch with a nice view over countryside with some sightings of trains. Facilities are excellent.Great to be able to see availability on a website. Thought it would have been nice to have a seating area nearby on grass. Very convenient for catching buses to Whitby and beyond, local bus to Grosmont ,Lealholme and the Coastliner to Pickering via Goatland. Radfords butchers and deli in Staithes is excellent. The meat, pork pie,ready meals and bread are too good to miss. Bothams bakery in village very good too.The fish and chip shop was better than being in Whitby. Perrys garden centre and cafe in Staithes worth a visit. Also the excellent shrub nursery in Lealholme. And of course the trains! A great break.

How it should be done

Eskdalegate Farm
Fantastic site. This is fairly new location and has been carefully thought out. Everything is clearly labelled and neat. The online booking system is a great idea too. As someone else said, the water pressure is VERY high and burst our hose too! Take care.

Peaceful CL

Eskdalegate Farm
We spent 6 nights here and have had a lovely time. Our pitch had spectacular views over the valley with the NY moors railway below. The local pub and chippy are both worth a visit There is a lot to do in the area and I hope we get the chance to return.

Great CL site

Eskdalegate Farm
Just spent 7 days on this site and had a wonderful time. The owner Chris is very friendly and went over and above what we would expect from an owner. The site is new and has excellent views over Eskdale. Each pitch has its own fresh water tap and electric meter, which was great and all pitches also had their own electric vehicle charging point. Lots of wonderful walks close by and only 4 miles from Whitby. There is a fabulous butchers shop and Bothams bakery a 10 minute walk away and I can highly recommend Eskdale Fisheries for the tastiest fish and chips, comparable with any you can buy in Whitby. Will definitely return. Many thanks.
