Why stay here ...

North Yorkshire Moors Club Site is set within the relaxing and tranquil surrounds of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, the setting for the Heartbeat television series. Some pitches of the caravan site are pleasantly spacious and open or there is also a choice of more secluded locations, sheltered by trees. There are some spectacular moorland views from the western side of the site with the North Yorkshire Moors being a paradise for walkers. The site and surrounding area also offers some beautiful dog walks.

When visiting North Yorkshire Moors Club Site, you will have over 1,300 miles of footpaths to choose from, many of which can be joined from the park. For less energetic holiday makers at the caravan site, there are scenic drives through moorlands and forests. Having completed your explorations of such natural beauty, why not pass a restful day enjoying the peace and tranquillity of the countryside in all its splendour. Another way to enjoy the incredible scenery is via the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, with magnificent steam trains to ride on and journey stops at beautiful rural stations, such as those at Goathland and Grosmont villages. If you fancy a change of scene, why not head to the coast and take in a visit to Whitby, with its harbour and lovely views from the cliff tops either side of the estuary. You are sure to be inspired by such magnificent views, making this a break to remember.

Please note: this site does not have a toilet block.

Wonderful Autumn Stay

We arrived during storm Callum to a warm welcome from the wardens, who were also friendly and helpful during our stay. The site is easy to access, and has a mix of grass and hardstanding pitches, which are set out in small sections, giving the feeling of space . The site is surrounded by trees with tantalising glimpses of the moors between them. There is an excellent dog walk and you can access the lane to Falling Foss from the gate in the dog walk, from there we did a lovely circular walk to May Beck, and back through the woods. There are plenty of service points around the site and the Motorhome point has one of the new open grid emptying points. The site is a little remote,( which may not suit everyone) away from the main road so it is very quiet, plenty of wildlife, we even saw a Deer one afternoon. There is plenty to do in the area with the coast and moors close by, the site also has mini crazy golf, equipment available at reception. Ruswarp has a wonderful butchers which also sells great pies and cheeses, there is also a pub but car parking is very limited. We enjoyed a lovely Sunday lunch at The Plough in Sleights and dogs are welcome in the bar. Whitby is lovely and the beach is completely dog friendly in October, don't forget to try the Fish & Chips 😉 This is a wonderful no facilities site and one we will return to.

Only an overnighter....

...on our way back home & booked by CAMC staff at a site further up north. But it was lovely. Very exposed despite the trees trying to give some protection. Excellent for dog walking. Obviously can't comment on facilities too much as there is no toilet block but the staff are always out & keeping everything tidy & clean around the water points etc. No doubt it is a good location for that part of the world & handily placed for the resorts in that area.

Great site, best dog walk we have experienced to date 👍

This was the second time we have visited this site this year and is becoming one of our favourites. The site had plenty of room with both grass & hardstanding pitches available. The wardens weren't on duty when we arrived but this presents no problem as you simply post your membership card & go & find a pitch, reporting back when the reception opens. The wardens were very friendly & helpful and provided some excellent baking at the McMillan Coffee Morning. The wooded dog walk is a delight, it feels like a scene from the Hobbit, you can let the dog loose without worrying about them getting lost. The site is ideally situated for The North Yorkshire Coast which, in my opinion, i s as good as anywhere in the country. The North Yorkshire railway is near by, there was a 'steam weekend' on which was a bonus. I take my kayak which I launch from Sandsend from the car park if the weather allows, It was too windy to go out so I fished from the car park & caught a few. We will be back 👍

peaceful and tranquil site

We had a lovely week at the site and despite the howling winds and lashing rain managed to visit everywhere we had planned. The wardens were really friendly and helpful and the site was spotlessly clean and tidy. The information shed is full of interesting leaflets and books with plenty of ideas of things to do locally. The dog walking area is great, quite a reasonable walk and the dogs could run off lead and sniff about. We did a circular walk from Goathland to Little Beck and sat outside the pub in the sunshine enjoying a pint, an old fashioned pub as the bar is in the front room of the house and the beer is served through a hatch from the kitchen. Another walk off the site is to Foss waterfall where we sat again in the sunshine and had a tasty lunch before heading back uphill to the site. Scarborough sea front and harbour was beautiful although we couldn't walk on the beaches as the dog beach was closed but it is open from the end of September. we will definitely return to the site next year as there is so much to do around and about.

Lovely site

We've spent a long weekend here in July. We received a warm and friendly welcome from the warden lady. The site is kept impeccable. The information hut with all the leaflets was absolutely tidy. The site is lovely and peaceful, I loved the location as it is kind of in the forest. There's a lovely little walking area as well in the neighbouring forest. The site is close to Whitby and Scarborough, and if you're a Heartbeat fan like my other half, visiting Goathland is a must :) The only drawback was the poor internet reception (this is O2 information), we had to go up to the reception-entrance area to get 3G. It made planning a bit difficult. Other than that it's a very lovely, very well maintained site, would definitely recommend it.
