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. This site as well as surrounding North Yorkshire caravan sites offer a variety of 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.

Fantastic; peaceful and perfectly located

We regularly visit the North York Moors and usually stay in a cottage. However during our last visit we spotted this site and decided to book and bring our caravan up. I am so pleased that we did! The site is located in a perfect location for a quiet stay with fantastic walks and within easy car travel distance to Goathland, Whitby, Grosmont, Robin Hood's Bay etc - just what we wanted. There is a lovely wood on the site for dog walking and it is only a very short (and lovely) walk to Falling Foss where there is a (seasonal) tea shop. Despite the review below mine we felt it was an excellent site with very friendly management. We actually welcome and appreciate the policing of the rules. Rules are generally for well founded safety reasons (spacing between vehicles etc) and the interests of other residents. The grass was soft due to the weather and so it seems common sense to me to keep vehicles off of it. No special cases - the rules are the rules for good reason and help ensure what makes Caravan Club sites the high standard that they are. We shall definitely visit again.

Basic and regimented

Site nice enough and would have scored higher if hadn't been made to feel like naughty children upon arrival and throughout stay. Felt uncomfortable for whole of stay because owner in my opinion appeared unnecessarily over controlling and so precise. Owner asked we not have two cars parked on pitch despite the gravel pitch being plenty large enough for my tiny caravan and two cars and being informed my friend was not staying and was only here for 20 minutes to help set up as I was new to caravan ownership. However he insisted my friend Park his car at reception despite that my friend had followed me for 4 hours and had a 5 hour journey home. The owner then felt the need to do regular site walks despite there being no facilities to oversee. This constant walk around the site made me feel policed despite being middle-aged, sensible and respectful of others. I went to stay in a cottage on the Friday but visited the caravan on the Saturday to have a coffee with my friend who had driven up again on the Friday to take over caring for my dog that wasn't allowed in the cottage booked prior to being a caravan or dog owner. The owner during his walk around knocked on the caravan to ask I move my car despite it being on the gravel and not hurting anyone or the grass. I can only think maybe insurance requires only 1 car allowed per pitch! However, if this is the case an explanation of this would have felt better than just being told to move with no explanation other than the owner in my opinion being overly worried about his grass. I thought caravan holidays supposed to be relaxing but I felt uncomfortable and would not rebook for this site. I would rather miss my Goth Weekend I have attended for many years.

Ok for a short break.

With limited facilities and a fairly remote location there's not a lot to get excited about on this site. Given it's elevated position the views are fairly poor due to the trees screening the site. A couple of miles to the nearest pub down a steep hill means a car journey is essential, walking or cycling would be hard work. Access is very easy albeit via a couple of steep hills on approach. Arriving from the north or south route seemed fairly similar on degree of difficulty, not too bad. The plus points are the access to the local attractions such as Whitby and the coast, the N.Yorks moors railway and heritage sites in the area. The site was fairly cheap and served the purpose of a weekend pull up but there are better sites locally with better facilities and views.

spoilt stay

good greeting on arrival friendly wardens,very keen to highlight speed limits which is good and totally agree with, unfortunately when his back is turned missed several people ignoring one way system, also arriving on site was a motorhomer from hell who promptly reserved the pitch next to his for his friend by using his motorhome pitched here sign, his friend who arrived with a car conversion proceeded to make everyones life a misery with constant slamming of car doors (about an hour and a half) "pitching" their car, not satisfied with that they then proceeded to have what can only be described as .a shouting contest so loud most of Whitby probably heard it, on the whole though site not bad, it was well placed for Whitby and supermarkets and plenty of attractions such as north yorks moors, steam railway and plenty of coastal places to visit, we will visit again and hope that we find a better pitch away from undesirables

Enjoyable stay.

This place is a little piece of heaven. The wildlife is The noisiest neighbour. Lovely level pitches. Quiet and tucked away from road noise. When the site is full it still is reasonably quiet. Week days there are fewer people around and one can indulge in wild life spotting. We had a deer trot passed our van one afternoon. There is a great secure dog walk which our dogs loved. Unfortunately the weather turned against us, but still enjoyed it. We have been here before and will come here again
