A good site but VERY expensive. Booked to stay a week but due to family emergency has to head home early, no refund offered and was disappointed to over hear the staff say they were full so could re-sell out pitch ( and still we were refused a refund), very disappointing service.

Site is good but several pitches are close together and facilities are overstretched at weekends. Not the easiest access down narrow lanes through a busy village made even more 'fun' when you meet the bus coming the other way!

Staff were ok but not very flexible which is disappointing as on previous visits they have been very friendly and helpful. Not sure we will go back but mainly based on price and customer service.

Our second visit after finding this site last year through someone at work.

We had astro turf on our first visit but it was very wet this time so asked for hard standing. Level'ish and big enough for van and awning if required. Bit of a stretch to get car on plot as well but we managed.

Staff friendly as usual and very helpful.

Tried food from the mill one night, burger was ok but nothing special, a bit dry if I'm honest.

Everything else was as good as last time, see my previous review for a more in depth write up.

I would recommend this site without doubt but would advise early or late season as their prices go up mid-season.

On leaving we negotiated the narrow exit back to the A19, it's not a problem if you take your time and meet considerate drivers. On this occasion two separate drivers decided it was easier for me to reverse with a van on the back than it was for them just to wait 30 seconds for me to get all the way passed the parked cars.

Won't come back here again, charged us 26 per night! That didn't include an extra 3 for wifi if you wanted it. Crammed on and very noisy.

Told (not asked) to arrive after 1pm, we didn't like the pitch we were on and asked to move, they did move us but she was very unfriendly about it.

Had paid for three nights and decided we really didn't want to stay, they will NOT do refunds, be warned. It is at their discretion accepted but by this point the weekend was over and the campsite only a third full.

Quite unfriendly, barriers and codes on locked doors, hook up had bare wires showing.

Showers cool and weak in strength, under floor heating though, that was nice.

This site is well-located for walking and is only a few minutes walk from the village with three good pubs. The pitches are level and plenty are on hard-standing. The toilets and showers are excellent and the whole site is well-managed. It is not cheap and as others have mentioned the WiFi is an additional 3 a day per device (so you cannot connect your phone and laptop unless you pay another 3). A good base for walking and a pretty location by the river.

Well run and great for families. Lots of children here at the weekend to the point of being overrun with them. We are a couple. We thought it was very expensive - 24 a night for a caravan and 3 a day for the internet. Grass pitch for us - muddy in parts. Osmotherley very nice - nothing there really just a very pretty village with pubs one fish and chip shop, one village shop one cafe. No mobile phone signal.

Wouldn't come back. Pitches are crammed together and not very pretty really but nevertheless it was full. Horses and courses I suppose. Toilet block immaculate. Northallerton - good market town 15 minutes away from site.

As I say - seemed very good with play areas for young children and families but not for us I'm afraid - we didn't enjoy it one jot.

What a great site. All the amenities needed, clean and very nice.

My 10 year old absolutely loved it here, playing in the stream with other children and out till late playing manhunt.

The only negative is that the site is to far from home for us to go more often.

Osmotherly is a great village with 3 pubs which all do food, there are plenty of other attractions nearby, walking, Whitby etc.

The hostel on site also does good food which can be eaten in the hostel or taken back to the pitch.

Spent weekend here on this very busy site in excellent location just outside the village of Osmotherley. Ideal for circular walks from the campsite or for a stop over if doing Cleveland Way or even a coast to coast walking tour. Child friendly with play areas which are really big sand pits. Loos were spotless. Weather was a tale of two halves: first day and night great second was a seven hour electric storm with torrential rain. This flagged up the fact that drainage in some areas struggled to move the amount of water coming down. This is however a fabulous site and well worth a visit or an extended stay.

As mentioned by others it's a bit tight through the village & up hill to the site but wasn't a problem arriving or leaving. We stayed Monday to Saturday in the height of the school holidays. We did request the quite area but that's probably not possible this time of year.

Staff very friendly & facilities/ grounds well kept. Ideal location for walking the North York moors.

Would return to explore the area further.

Just had a lovely 3 day break at this site. Originally booked for 2 but enjoyed it so much decided to stay on Sunday and leave early Monday morning. We were on the top level 'T' section which was in full sun all day long. Good sized pitch on hardstanding (bit too hard for our liking though as there were pebbles rather than chippings but we were lucky we had our foam put together carpet in the van so okay.) Osmotherley is a ten minute casual walk away on the road and well worthwhile. Three pubs opposite each other and a great fish and chip shop. Ate at the Golden Lion and really enjoyed it. We drove out of the bottom edge of the village up onto the moors and the views are fantastic and you could see for miles. Going back to the site we found the facilities and the staff first class and we will definitely be going back as its one of the nicest sites we visited.

We've just returned from our first stay at Cote Ghyll and in fact, our first ever camping trip!

We chose Cote Ghyll based on it's fantastic reviews and beautiful location and we certainly weren't disappointed!

The whole site was well presented and nicely laid out, even though it was busy it didn't feel like everyone had been shoe-horned in. The security barrier and the fact the gate were locked every night was a reassuring touch, especially with us being first-timers as was seeing the site warden several times during our stay.

We found everyone on site, staff and other visitors, really friendly and helpful. Which was lucky seeing as we couldn't figure out how to use the electrical hook up and basically had no idea what we were doing!

The playgrounds were fantastic, the kids would've stayed on site all day playing in them and paddling in the stream. We could see the playground from our tent too which was ideal.

Both toilet/shower blocks were immaculate and the showers were plenty hot enough. We also took advantage of the family bathroom which was great having two children not keen on showers! We were advised on arrival that if the brick shower block is busy that the Cedar block is quieter due to being nearer the tourers and statics. I don't know whether we just timed it right but we never had to test this theory.

The on site shop was only small but well stocked with essentials although we didn't use it ourselves. We opted for super lazy camping and ate out! We had a lovely home cooked and incredibly reasonably priced meal in the YHA. I think if we'd have stayed longer we'd have certainly sampled takeaway service and breakfasts on offer.

We also ate at the village chippy which I can highly recommend!

My only and very slight criticism would be that there only appeared to be two 'sloping' pitches on site and we were on one of them! It made it a little tricky pitching the tent and was a bit disorientating in the mornings but this may be with it being our first attempt, I guess you get used to it!

All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will certainly look forward to many more camping trips including another stay at Cote Ghyll.
