Tranquil Well Kept Site A Good Base For Walking

The site has everything a CL should possess. The field is level no need for leveling blocks. The adjacent pub has good selection of beer from its micro-brewery however the pub food was just that Pub Grub, nothing to write home about. The TV signal is excellent as is the free WIFi. The route to the site is via the village of Wrelton and there is a sharp blind left-hand bend at the end of this village, note agricultural vehicles and lorries taking cut trees from the Forestry Commission forest coming from the direction of Cropton tend to take up all the road when navigating this corner. The walks from this site are varied and access by car to Helmsley, The Cleveland Way and of course Rosedale provide the easiest walks. There is no light pollution or at least minimal light pollution so the night sky is a myriad of stars providing there is no cloud cover. Nearest shops and petrol are in Pickering Mike Fisher was welcoming and as previously stated the site well kept. Yes we will return.

Lovely peaceful site

Booked 2 nights at short notice and got the last pitch available. Lots of space to park your vehicle, everything we need, EHU, water in, black waste and ok to put grey water under the hedge. All grass but mown short and very level. There is free WIFI too as the signal in the area is fairly weak. So quiet, all you can hear are owls at night. The village is very pretty, some nice walks from the site and a short drive to Pickering, Hutton le Hole, Castle Howard and other the countryside around. The local pub is a short walk, The New Inn serves good food, is a micro brewery with its own real ales and is dog friendly. Take a torch, it’s dark walking back to the site, leave a light on. Will definitely go back , £12 per night.

Home again

Having had to leave the area it was lovely to have been made so welcome upon our return. This is one of several visits to this treasure among CL s the site is beautifully kept with sunny level pitches and well kept grass. Water and toilet disposal facilities and an ensured welcome from Mike. Dog friendly. Well situated for visiting the North Yorkshire beauty spots and the coast. Others share our opinions as most we met were 'returners' Thanks again Mike..see you next year.. Jim and Roma

Brilliant CL

A large well spaced out site which is well kept and drains well in wet weather. The owner Mr Fisher is very friendly and helpful and the pub next door serves good beer from its own micro brewery and good good.We try to go every year.

Great site we will return!

We stayed here with friends and found it was a lovely site, grass was well cut and what a lovely big feild to stay in, no problems with being too near to your neighbours. Pub next door was a bonus as it was a night off cooking and good pub grub with excellent home brewed beer. We love the area, visited Helmsley on the really wet day and then went walking on the other days, such a pretty village, quiet location and lovely countrysideA

Lovely site

We have visited this site many times over the last few years, but in recent visits we have been disappointed with the restricted access due to the over grown trees, as mentioned in previous review. The length of the grass, the overgrown hedgerows and the general lack of care recently, has been disappointing. More importantly on our last few visits there have been 6 vans on this 5 van site, this is not counting the rally field.

Superb site!

What's not to like about this little piece of heaven. We actually stopped in the back field with the views which only has a part time license, the track is a little tight, no problem but just needs a trim. When we stayed the grass was a bit too long (no hardstanding) and just a bit soft after heavy rain - but that's really picky. Main gate set back so you can arrive and leave without staying out on the road. Chemical waste is a direct manhole with a raised timber surround, with dedicated water tap. no problems. Yes you need to be careful with electrics but we always assume CLs don't have 16a Just need to remember not to have everything on at once. The cottage sharing this drive is not part of the site. The main field is well spaced and sheltered and near a pub (no noise). Really peaceful spot well located. need to book early for this one!

Fabulous CL

I concur with what has already been said, a wonderful CL, very peaceful, inky black sky with amazing stars I stood outside in the cold and just looked up at the night sky in amazement, great well spaced pitches, only 10amp though but adequate, if hedges were cut down a bit you would have amazing views too but regardless an excellent CL in which we will definitely return, good pub in a stones throw too, bonus! Love North Yorks!
