Amazing First Stay

Just back from this wonderful CL site after a couple of nights, so easy to get to and proper approach to the site. What a fabulous time we had, so peaceful and quiet, only the lambs and cows for company. The site wardens are very welcoming, knowledgable and helpful. We bought a couple of their steaks and eggs from reception and walked around the village to an honesty barrow which had veg, jams etc to buy. Only a Couple of nights trying out the new to us motorhome so didn’t venture too far this time but the weather was good only rained at the end of the first day and overnight on the second, so we just enjoyed the surroundings. The owner made time to come and say hello which was very nice considering it’s such a busy working farm. We will definitely visit again. Thank you.

Lovely site

Just back after 2 nights on this lovely CL - access from the south via A64 & A19 is extremely easy and it was nice not to have to use any single track roads as is so often the case with a farm CL. Rachel was very welcoming and helpful and has clearly taken on board all the changes now made necessary by Covid-19. The site is a decent size field - flat with plenty of space, especially as they're only taking 4 units at the moment. The grass is short and clearly drains well if our experience when leaving yesterday after a lot of overnight and early morning rain is anything to go by. While this area is not the most scenic, it's only a short drive to the Howardian Hills to the east or to the Dales to the west and we enjoyed visiting Boroughbridge & Easingwold. We had lunch at The Dining Room in Boroughbridge and it was excellent - quality ingredients, all perfectly prepared - definitely worth a visit. We also walked up to the Devil's Arrows just outside the town - 3 spectacular monoliths that are around 5 metres high and apparently were somehow transported from around Knaresborough in the Bronze Age. Not much information despite the best efforts of a local councillor we met who is trying to get a decent information board erected but is suffering from local bureaucracy... We bought a couple of Aberdeen Angus steaks from the reception shop - which came from Rachel & John's herd and were wonderful and, again, highly recommended as is the CL! One to return to!

Third visit to this great CL and not the last

I have little to add to my review of last year, as we have recently made our third visit. We are not generally repeat visitors, but Easingwold keeps drawing us back, and this is for us the best CL in the area. This time we fitted in more cycling, as well as a visit to York, via the convenient park and ride at Rawcliffe down the A19. Home Farm will be an obvious choice next time we want to stay in the delightful area north of York.

Great CL

We stayed here for 2 nights on route back from London. Very nice tidy site with all you need. The shower block costs a couple of pounds extra per night and is a short walk into the main site owned by the same people, something to be aware of if you don't plan to use the onboard facilities of your van. It is a nice walk through the main site to the block, everything is spotless and we found everyone very friendly. The walk also goes past the local cricket field which in my view added a nice outlook. Alne is a nice village, with a local pub that provides excellent meals. Plan to return to Yorkshire to spend more time there and would certainly use this CL again.

Nice CL

This is a lovely CL site. the only gripe is it a bit of a walk to the shower block. At £11 a night it seems cheap, dont forget if you have an awning or your want to use the shower block its an extra £2.50 per night. The grounds are lovely , we will be back.

Well kept and well run site in lovely village

Home Farm has a great deal to offer as a CL, indeed is one of the best we have used (this was our second visit). The site is level with well maintained grass, easy access, good facilities, and just the right size for 5 caravans. What is not obvious until contact is made with the CL is that it is adjacent to a commercial site, Alders, run by the same team. This is a little distance away, the access drive does not seem too busy as many of the sites at Alders are seasonal, and the CL being run in conjunction with Alders means that the reception process is much more organised than most CLs. The site is next to the working farm, which inevitably means a little pleasantly rural noise. Alne is a lovely well kept village, (very quiet apart from the main line railway a mile away) and the area is flat, so is perfect for cycling, while Easingwold must be one of the most attractive small towns in Yorkshire.
