Lovely views from a well kept site. David and his wife were very friendly and helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. We plan to return when we can.

What a Find!

Upper Helmsley Hall
Spent five nights here during the summer of 2020. This place is fantastic! Quite, beautiful views all the things that have been said elsewhere. If there is one thing to be wary of, you should ensure you have plenty of long electrical hook up cable. Electrics are sourced from a central point so could be a problem if you arrive unprepared. Everyone we dealt wihh during our stay couldn't have been more helpful. Excellent place, definitely recommended and we would hope someday to return.

Wonderful in a 35ft winnebago

Upper Helmsley Hall
Upper Helmsley Hall, what a wonderful gem! Truly lovely host David and his wife met us and made us so very welcome. Arrived with my 35ft RV with tow car so access is a little tricky, but is simple to achieve with some point persons! Can be accessed with a very long and large american RV. Views are stunning, access to local area and attractions is easy, not sure about public transport as had our own tow car. The site has great water and EHU so our 5 day stay was wonderful, weather end oct was very kind, we had a really superb stay and will definitely have David and Upper Helmsley Hall on our favourites and revisit list. Thank you Upper Helmsley Hall xx

Beautiful Views

Upper Helmsley Hall
The site is in a quiet location with beautiful views. Excellent access to York and its attractions. Great location for walking. The River Derwent offers great walks and a walk to the mill at Howsham is a must. Recently restored Mill and Archimedes screw is amazing. Stamford Bridge is a couple of miles away. The electric on site has recently been updated to !6 amps which is great. You do need to ensure you take a few cables as the electric is all located in one shed and you need to run your cables around the perimeter of the site. The entrance is quite tight and should be entered from the A166 and not the A64. Great welcome from the owners. The only criticism would be that the fresh water and Elsan waste hose should be kept completely seperate. Had an amazing stay and will return.

Great site

Upper Helmsley Hall
This is a fantastic site with gorgeous views from your window. Ian who looks after the site is a great chap very friendly and helpful. David who looks after the hall is also what I have said about Ian and keeps the grass nicely cut. I have been a few times to this peaceful site and will continue to do so in the future.
