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.

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.
