The site is in a great position, quiet and surrounded by forest and fields. We went over half term and as they were busy we were offered the chance to go in the top field with 2 other units (there's room for a few more). This is just a bit further away from the facilities but this suited us fine as it was beautifully quiet (apart from cows mooing but what do you expect in the country?!). The owners were friendly and helpful, the shower was very hot (only niggle was that it's the shortest run per press of the button I've ever come across). Lovely and clean and well looked after. We'll definitely come again.
Two adults, two kids (aged 14 & 11) plus dog, Vango Maritsa 700 tent with electric hook up.
The location of this site can be summed up in one word; wow! It is in the middle of Dalby Forest and the added bonus of the site is that you do not have to pay the usual £7/car entrance fee to get in to the forest. Ideal for mountain biking, walking, Go Aping(!), bbqs and relaxing there really is no need to leave the forest. Close by though is the North Yorks Moors Railway for the steam enthusiast, the beautiful North Yorkshire Moors itself and Whitby not too far away if you did fancy a ride out.
Ok, so the facilities are basic but they are clean. Three showers in total (these were heated too, wasn't expecting that!), two toilets and one sink in Ladies, two toilets and one sink in Mens, pot washing area and drying room. The only slight niggle is that there really does need to be at least another sink available; one is not enough with two toilets plus people teeth cleaning etc even though it is a small site. That said, it would definitely not put me off returning!
Paid £7/night/adult, £3/night/child plus £3/night for EHU which was fairly priced.
Great customer service; from booking to leaving. On arrival we reported to the office and was met with a warm welcome by one of the owners who showed us where we could pitch, where things were, what was what etc.
My kids loved this site even though there was no play park etc - this was not needed at all. There was ample room for kids to enjoy frisbee, bat & ball etc. Both of them commented on how much they enjoyed the site.
Overall this has got to be one of the best sites we have stayed at. The location is fantastic, we loved the fact that the owners did not pack the site out and there was plenty of space. The quiet after 10pm rule is adhered to thankfully and the site has a lovely atmosphere.
We booked a Pod for our family, having never camped before and being a lover of my 'own bed', I had my reservations!
What a treat, these pods are immaculate, set in such a lovely working farm, we have 3 kids (2 teens and a 9 year old) so we booked a family pod, there was plenty of room, 3 single camp beds and a double air bed, nice & cosy.
Owners were friendly and informative, we booked bacon sandwiches for the morning, home made bread, they were so lovely.
Clean showers and toilets, nothing to complain about whatsoever, kids loved it, we will definitely be booking to come again, thanks again to Helen and Richard
Me and the Mrs wanted a quick break and decided on one of the PODs read a lot of mixed reviews on these so decided to give one ago, perfect if you don't really want to put a tent up just take everything else barring you tent.
Site is in the middle of dalby forest which means peace and quiet, easy to find with directions from the owner, roads a bit bumpy leading to the site but not an issue.
Arrived met the owner and was shown to our little pod, first impressions of site was spotless very very well maintained, the pods have their own parking area away from pods which is no further than 20yrds from furthest pod which means the grass in front is left nice and tidy.
Pods have electric/lights/small heater.
We set up our little palace and was at home and relaxed.
Toilets/shower block was spotless water was nice and warm.
If you order the night before you can get breakfast buns done for your grub all with the produce from the working farm also you can buy fresh eggs / burgers / porkchops / sausages all fresh off the farm and at a reasonable price.
A nice little touch I thought was there was metal grates supplied for each pod and for campers to put bbq`s on to protect the grass.
If you bring kids, bring something for them todo or go out a lot as there is nothing for them todo but plenty of room for them to play.
In a nut shell this site is spot on if you want peace and quite this is it,
With whitby 20-30mins away pickering just up the road, and the ice cream in thornton-le-dale
What more do you need.
We will defo be going back and have already told our friends who also will be visiting.
Trust me you wont be disapointed so get ya backsides there.
Visited over the bank holiday weekend with my wife and two children aged 4yrs and 20 months. On arrival spoke to the owner who was lovely and walked us around to our plot. Throughout our stay both her and the other owner were so accommodating. Did not have one of the breakfast buns but they looked wonderful. The camp site is lovely for children to run around and play. Even the bank holiday they did not over crowd the field so we have lots of space.
The toilets are lovely and clean.
The owner does go around at 10pm and any noise is requested to be turned off, so if you want a quite site on a night this is the one
We will be going back this site has ticked all the boxes.
Off the beaten track and good for the mountain bike fraternity. Site is almost level and mainly grass, though there is hardstanding available in front of the cattle shed. No playground for children - all the youngsters we saw while there were part of families who were all there for the biking.
In general, the facilities are very good - 2 toilets and sink for ladies and same for gents. 2 showers - lots of hot water on one of those push button thingies. Pot washing room and drying room plus a shower which would suit disabled. Also bike washing area. They were all kept clean & fresh during our stay. One thing which would be helpful in the showers would be somewhere to put your soap etc while in the shower. Lots of dog walking off site.
For those who aren't into testosterone fuelled sports, then it's very hand for day trips to the North Moors Railway at Pickering, or Whitby and Hutton le Hole. Not forgetting Balderson's ice creams in Thornton Dale.
