Short break

Gem of a site, if you like countryside and animals this is the place for you. Very peaceful, shower and 2 toilets; shower lasts 6 minutes just enough time. Owners very helpful and friendly. Lealhome a pretty village with good tearoom and village shop. Near to coast. Loved it so much stayed extra night.

A gem

After a very friendly welcome by Mr. Foord we were delighted with the peace and tranquility of this lovey site with outstanding views of the Esk Valley. The facilities are clean and tidy and in great codition. I would recommend this site to all and well worth the extra detour to avoid Sutton Bank. We will be back in the new year.

Once more and just as good and friendly

We visited Martin and his farm once again and once again it was the food of life. The weather was very kind, the best bank holiday in early May on record. we stayed on site for 3 days, ate of the barbie each day. strolled around the countryside now and again, and in between basked in the glorious sunshine. Martin was his usual helpful self. this site is so good we will keep on visiting again and again.Thank you Martin and family for another lovely holiday. From Ian

Friendly farm

We nearly got caught trying to approach this site via the Sutton Bank road. I phoned Martin, and he gave very clear directions. (From Thirsk, take the A19 signed teesdale, and head towards Stokesley and Guisborough.) This set the tenor of the visit. Martin reversed our van for us with his 4x4 when our car couldn't cope, and helped us level. He also pulled us off at the end. The whole family were very friendly and helpful. Martin always seemed to pop up when you needed him! The roads in and out of the site were quite steep, but this did not prove a problem when towing. There are lovely views from this site, and we enjoyed the cows, geese, pigs, and ducks on the pond. You can buy delicious pork from the farm, plus eggs. There are two toilets and two showers plus washing machine and drier, housed in two pleasingly rustic but clean stone outhouses. You need tokens for showers (£1=5 mins), and washing/drying (£6=1 hour's use). The site has good access to Whitby, the coast, lovely villages in north yorks moors. York 1 hour 20 mins away (Park and Ride). Plenty of cycling and running up hill and down dale, and visiting historic sites if this your bag. We loved it, and were truly sorry to leave.

Stunning scenery

We booked 3 nights and stayed for 4! Excellent walks, train to Whitby and a community bus to get you home. Martin is friendly and helpful, the views are great and the garden centre in the village is definitely worth a visit.

A great place to relax

Very welcoming, this CL is ideal for walking around the area but one should be well prepared for walks as most of the roads and public footpaths are up&down the hills. Lealholm "city centre" :-) is 15 mins to walk and has a nice grocery shop, a service station also stocking gas bottles and a cosy tea room with lots of different tasty cakes, not recommended while on a diet! :-)

Lovely Scenic Site, very welcoming

As has been previously mentioned there is more that one field here, but also 2 lots of toilet/showers and 1 waste emptying etc. Martin was extremely helpful when we arrived (late because of a tyre blow out on motorway!) helped my husband level the caravan (nothing for me to do - hooray!!) as the bottom field is sloping but worth it for the views.  I believe the bottom field is the non CL one as there were a couple of Tents, but this was not an issue for us.  Eggs, Sausages & Burgers available to buy which were fab and our 9 year old went to collect the eggs with Martin, scraps of food can be given to the pigs which, again, our daughter loved as the young ones come charging over whenever anyone approaches.  Added bonus RAF jets practising very overhead! Village is lovely with tea rooms, shop and pub, Fish & Chip van once a weeks comes on to the site, as well as stopping in the village. Whitby pretty close too and other places nearby - we extended out stay to ensure we could do everything.  Would recommend and use again.

One of the best I have visited

There are three areas and I believe the bottom field is the non CL although we could choose wherever. We chose the top field where four could be sited and gave us a fantastic view of the moors. The pitches are grass and on a slope but easily levelled, with Martins help in positioning for the best view and maximum sun. Two shower/toilet blocks available, basic but spotless, but bear in mind the showers are tokened at £1 a time. Peaceful surroundings with walking direct from the site, and in the nearby village of Lealholm good food at the pub and the two tearooms, also a 'chippy' van weekly in the car park. We also caught the train from the village station into Whitby rather than drive, the times giving us 5 hours before our return journey. Very good CL, worth a visit.

A great spot

A great find. Despite having more than the standard five pitches there was acres of room between pitches and the views down the dale are spectacular. Martin was extremely helpful, guiding us onto our sloping pitch and I'm looking forward to the sausages from his Saddleback pigs. Can't wait to book a return visit.

Peace and quiet

Having arrived for the 3rd consequetive year in this ideal peaceful location resting amoungst the moors, we setup with the owners help as usual. The CL is located a minutes from Lealholm which is around 8 miles to Whitby. Directly out of the CL you have moors and miles of walking or cycling.
