Fabulous will definitely be returning ! Very thoughtful and safe owners !

On arrival the friendly owners advised us of all the covid precautions in place. We were shown around the immaculate site and given the choice of pitches. The owners were very knowledgeable of the local areas pointing out the dog walk, local pubs, restaurants and places to visit. The dog walk starts literally at the entrance to the site. Also the village is at the entrance with a beautiful tea rooms, craft shops, chocolate factory and the crown pub (we ate there twice ) felt completely safe and beautiful homemade food. We ventured out every day - to Whitby , robin hoods bay, goathland, thirsk and to see the white horse on the hillside. We also did a circular walk to lastingham where we stopped at the village pub for a couple of drinks. The site is central to a multitude of places and I’m sure we could revisit time after time and still find places to visit.

Another fabulous stay !!

Just returned from another fabulous stay over the festive season at one of our favourite CL’s. Louise and Will are perfect hosts giving you all the information you need upon arrival to make the most of your stay. The 5 hard standing pitch’s are just great as can be used in all weathers. Facilities (toilets, shower and washing up area) are always clean and tidy and are an added bonus for a CL site. Local pub 3 mins walk from site The Crown serves real ale and the food is excellent. Lots to do and see from the site and if you enjoy walking then you have the North Yorkshire moors on your door step, also listen out on an evening for the 2 owls talking to each other. Thanks again for an enjoyable stay and we look forward to seeing you again very soon.

The best CL of the year

Here we are at the latter part of the caravan season and have to say that this site is the best CL we have visited all year, in fact it might well be the best of all time. What a lovely site, absolutely beautiful situation, stunning views, peaceful tranquil village location, spacious well maintained pitches, immaculately clean facilities and a welcome from the owners. The site is in a quiet location next to the church and away from the road, there is a craft centre nearby, the Rydale museum is next door( leave plenty of time to visit), a number of cafes nearby serving good quality food. The Crown Inn is a short walk away, a lovely pub with friendly staff, a good selection of drinks and amazing food. This is not our first visit to this site and it won’t be our last, well worth a try!

Update on previous review

Having written the previous review I have searched the Caravan and Motorhome Club rules and found this ‘Anyone visiting someone staying on site will need to see the site staff on arrival to ensure their stay is safe. The site staff may allow visitors' cars to be parked within the pitch they're visiting. If staying overnight a fee for both visitors and their cars will be charged. I’m not sure whether this relates to CLs as well as Club sites but giving the owner the benefit of the doubt I will be sending him a cheque for the £3.00 he believes I owe him. Had he mentioned it earlier I would have attempted to get a signal somewhere else as there is no WIFI or workable 3G or 4G on the site and I’d have been able to check on the club rules before I left.

Comment from the Club:

Further to your review the CL owner has been in touch to review your concerns.

With immediate effect they are cancelling all their car boot fairs in their field for 2019.

The cost of a pitch is for a unit and a car plus two Adults. As such a Motorhome towing a car would not incur additional fees. If the CL owners had been aware that you had been planning on having your Daughters car parked on the pitch they would have advised you of the cost and did advise your Daughter of the charge.

With regards to the gift shop at Hutton-le-Hole, the CL Owners have advised that unfortunately there was a fire in the flat above the shop that nearly took the life of a person and caused the death of a much loved family pet and a local family who ran the gift shop have lost their livelihood. Our thoughts are with the families who lived and worked here.

Don’t stay on a Sunday

Our 2nd stay at this site. The first time In April 2018 was great and Hutton le Hole is very nice. However we weren’t told that we would be woken at 6.30am by the cars arriving to set up for the car boot sale, we also weren’t told that the two unisex toilets on the site would be used by the general public attending the car boot and as a consequence the cleanliness was greatly compromised, I hate to think how many germs were on the sodden towelling hand towel in the toilets, we weren’t told that all the cars attending and leaving the car boot would be driving through the site to exit. We weren’t told until we were leaving that we had accrued a charge for a second vehicle my daughter visited one night, despite deliberately placing the caravan and not putting up an awning so we could fit the second vehicle a mini on our £22.00 per night C/L pitch. HAD THE OWNER TOLD US AT THE TIME we would have parked it at the pub and paid them the £3.00 charge. But instead he demanded money from us in a most unpleasant manner as we were leaving and driving out. I have checked his site page and can’t find any information that states what I can and can’t have on the pitch. Maybe he charges a second fee for Motorhomes with a little tow car. Suggest the owner be a little more clear and provide information about car boot and any additional rules they choose to impose when people book and on arrival. Wouldn’t stay here again. The area is lovely and the pub in Hutton le Hole has fantastic food. Would stay at the Caravan and Motorhome club site in Rosedale Abbey. It looked beautiful and at least there is a local shop there unlike the burnt out wreck of a shop in Hutton le Hole.

One of our favourite CL's

We absolutely love staying here, a beautiful well laid out and cared for site. Excellent clean facilities, friendly owner and even a boot sale thrown in on Sunday morning. Hutton-Le-Hole is a picture perfect village, one of the best on the North York Moors. There are cafe's, ice cream shops, craft shops, a museum and a super pub. There are walks in all directions from the site, we were given leaflets of all the local walks. Lastingham is a must, the church is so interesting and the pub excellent, the food was superb... No phone signal or 4G but a good excuse to pop into The Crown for a swift half and to use their free wifi. Looking forward to another visit before too long....

Perfect in every way

We already enjoyed visiting this area of Yorkshire and Hutton le Hole is a great little village to locate a CL. Can’t fault the site, clean, hot shower, level pitches, hard standing and grassy areas. Walk to the pub in the village or take a nice 1/2 hour stroll to Lastingham and visit the local pub there and the extremely old church which is very interesting. We enjoyed staying in the village, locals are friendly, good dog walking, 2 shops selling lovely ice cream, cakes and coffee. Tea rooms x 3, chocolate shop, craft shop and a lovely wool shop with local wools for felting or knitting. Short drives will see you in Helmsley, Ampleforth or Pickering if you want a bit more to see or do. There is a car boot fair in the village too, try and time your visit for that if you can get booked in. We look forward to returning.

Perfect

We already have a very good acquaintance with Hutton le Hole and the surrounding area, having a daughter, son-in-law and two grandkids about 4 miles away. We had seen this wonderful little site and decided that, as soon as we were the owners of a Campervan, we would visit, especially if we were required to carry out "kid sitting" in Yorkshire !!. We visited between 11 and 14 May and we were not disappointed with our choice!! We can only reiterate what all the other Reviewers have said before. The owners are really helpful, friendly and full of local knowledge. The facilities are spotless and secure with keys for entry issued on arrival. As stated, the site is Adults Only and this applies also to visitors. We found this to be no problem at all and this added to the site's tranquility. The Crown Pub just up the road is lovely with excellent food and good well kept real ale. Access to the Chocolate Factory MAY just be a little TOO close for comfort if, like me, you are a Chocoholic!! I find it quite impossible not to spend far too much!! The Forge Tea Room takes you back to those days of REAL quality ENGLISH fare and, as a resident of the site, Louise has arranged a 10% discount.  The (mushroom) Soup and Sandwiches were delicious!!  If you are as familiar with an area as we are here, it is easy to take a more leisurely attitude about visiting the attractions on offer. However, as the weather was not really lending itself to long walks on the Bank Holiday, we met up with the family and took in our first visit to the Ryedale Folk Museum. Wonderful and a real gem with surprises round every corner!! Not much more to add, really, but I think the owners MAY be pleased if I warned all of you arriving at the gate to make sure that you hook them BOTH back before you drive through. I can thoroughly recommend Chas Atkinsons Tyres in Helmsley for excellent service!!!

First Class

We stayed here last weekend after our original booking in March was postponed due to the Beast from the East. It was well worth the wait! We received a very warm welcome from Louise who let us know where everything was and advised the best way of getting on to the pitch (the last one left). It's a very well kept site and the facilities were spotless. The surroundings are beautiful with the noise of sheep and not much else. We spent part of Saturday morning watching a squirrel gathering nuts for the winter. This is probably the most we have paid for a CL but it was worth every penny due to the facilities and the location is exceptional. My parents (who were staying elsewhere in the village) have booked to return to this CL in a couple of weeks. We are currently checking our diaries to fit in our own return visit.
