Why stay here ...

This site is one of the most peaceful sites you will find, with views of over 5 miles which change with the seasons. You get sunrise to sunset and is sheltered from any prevailing breeze. It is situated close to York with all its attractions, but only around an hour from various seaside resorts, Whiteby, Scarborough, Bridlington and various market towns inbetween. We have the home of TV series Brideshead revisited a short distance away, Castle Howard North York Moors are on the way to Whitby as well.

In the other direction you have the Spa town of Harrogate and the Yorkshire Dales beyond. Services locally include small Co-op, various pubs, restaurants, takeaways, some which will deliver to site if you wish. Large supermarkets are about 15 minutes away. If you need any help or guidance, Ian or David will be only too happy to help you enjoy your break. Ideal for singles, couples or families.

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.

Peace and Tranquility

Upper Helmsley Hall
We had a friendly welcome on arrival by Ian who was so helpful... probably the best reception we have ever had. We stayed here visiting the York and Castle Howard Proms. The site is surrounded by mature woods. With the views from your caravan spectacular. Mobile phone and television reception are excellent. There is a beautiful little church adjacent to the site. The site is convenient for York, Monks Cross and Park and Ride... there only a few miles away. Since our last stay water as been relocated on site. You can also pay on arrival. We cannot recommend this site highly enough. Just the type of site you need for peace and quite.

Lovely visit

Upper Helmsley Hall
We have just had a week at this site. Whilst some folk had trouble with electricity being 6amp we always use gas anyway for boiling water and had no problem with electric for lights etc. The site is very rural although only 10 mins from York. The hall is beautiful as is the surrounding countryside with glorious views of the hills.

Our Visit Aug 2014

Upper Helmsley Hall
This is a quite site with lovely views to wake up to,  the cows in the next field even come to the fence to say hello which we thought was lovely. However getting our van on was difficult because the swing isn't very good. Before we had even managed to take the van off they were there wanting us to pay! think this was a bit weird just getting jumped on! The worst thing about this site is the amperage is only 6 VOLT instead of the normal 12. Would we go again probably not because of the reasons in our review.
