Reviewer: Bobman 7 reviews from this member

We hired a pod for one night to attend one of the concerts in the forest which we felt was a lot easier than setting up a tent for just overnight.

The pod itself was as described- snug, comfy and just roomy enough for 2. High quality, spotlessly clean and oh so convenient. We just took the minimum of kit so it may have been a bit of a squeeze with a full set up, but I'm sure it would have been manageable.

The pods are in the bottom corner of the field with a small parking area opposite. There was a stand for a bbq which we used a bench for each pod and a small porch to sit out on.

There is plenty of shelter and the camping field is a great suntrap, our pod faced the afternoon sun and I was able to face my chair to receive the morning sun and as we had ordered breakfast this was a very pleasant experience!

The facilities were basic but very acceptable in a block that had pretty hanging baskets and a sign that made it easy to remember which toilets were which - you will have to visit the site to get the joke. We had plenty of hot water when needed.

For a working farm there wasn't too much animal noise, we had expected to be woken by the cows but slept right through till the alarm. There are plenty of animals to keep little ones entertained.

The breakfast we ordered was great, perfect for us not taking much kit. On arrival one gent was getting a large order of sausages so I will take that as a good omen.

If you are going to the site for the concerts then have a reccie of the route back. It is easy enough but the chances are you will take a shortcut down and up a sharp dip on the way there which you will skirt around on the way back and it seems to take ages to get to the same point. A good torch is recommended. We had mobile phones which were OK but ended up walking back with a group with a very effective bike headlight. The return walk took about half an hour which was a lot quicker than trying to get out by car.

There is loads to do in the forest if you are the active type and this campsite is ideally located to take advantage of them. Scarborough Whitby York and the moors are also easily accessible and very worth a visit.

This is a great site for 'quiet' families, active groups or solo campers. Make your own entertainment because there is no clubhouse or other such vulgarity!

We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend the site.

Were on the last night of a 2 night stay, we love the site and cant fault it. Helen is extremely hard working giving everyone a lovely friendly welcome. We highly recommend Helens Home Baking, We had cheese scones this afternoon and Rhubard crumble muffins after tea. Both were extremely Light and tasty. Helen even baked them for mid afternoon so we could have fresh scones and a cuppa tea after a days walking.

The Site is on a working farm, Its been nice to see all the animals. The caravan pitches are well spaced out and the grass and hedges all well kept. The facilities are well kept and the showers are free and plenty of hot water. Wed like to say a big thank you to Helen and we will see you in July

This is a superb small, quiet, simple site which suited us perfectly. It's family friendly with plenty of field to play on, farm animals all around for the children to explore, and in the middle of Dalby Forest with loads of activities to enjoy. Including an excellent playground. There are also, of course, forest trails for mountain biking at all levels of experience.

A trip to the East coast beaches or to York is easy to fit in to a holiday.

The welcome is warm and friendly with plenty of advice regarding the local area. The farm also sells its own burgers. Sausages and pork chops which are just so, so tasty!

The shower block is fine with plenty of hot water and always kept clean. There is also an excellent washing up room.

The site is a little off the beaten track but shops of all sorts are only a few miles away so there is no real problem.

Yes, this is a quiet site with no late night noise allowed but that is exactly what we want. We have just returned from our 2nd visit and will be back there next year!

We stayed for a week (2 adults, 6 year old and 2 year old and 2 dogs). This is an amazing campsite! Really nice and quiet and nicely off the roads but still 10 minutes away from Thornton-le dale for shops.

There is a toilet block with washing up room; 2 standard showers and a larger shower room; male and female toilets with 2 in each. Showers could do with being slightly stronger or not as widely spread out (I have really thick hair that takes a bit to get shampoo out)

It is a basic toilet block but always nice and clean and warm.

There is a freezer available in the owners house for freezer blocks.

The site is a triangle shape going away from the toilet blocks with tents going down each side and pods towards the end point. The best feature of this site is the space in the middle for kids to play. The site rule of 5mph for cars is strictly controlled and it meant I was happy with my kids playing out. The hedges on each side kept them contained so the only exit was up the field towards the entrance.

The ground is nice and flat with only the slightest incline.

Others have commented on the 10pm noise rule - we never saw/heard the owner to enforce this but we were always in bed by 10pm and it was nice and quiet.

Fabulous site - already wanting to come back!

Locally there are lots of walks, two local playgrounds. The site cost includes the fee for entrance to the forest drive.

We stayed for two nights during the very cold spell at the end of April. On the second night we were given a quilt to use and also offered one of there camping pods if we wanted, nothing was too much trouble.

The campsite itself is in a stunning location in Dalby Forest, beautifully maintained. The breakfast rolls are really good, home baked bread, their own sausages and eggs.

This site represents what proper camping is all about and should be applauded for it.

What a gem of a place. Super flat field, well kept and great services.

Toilet and shower block were super, showers always lovely and warm, and no issue with them being push button, plus had a place for shampoo etc, and plenty of hooks for clothes!

Biking was superb from the site, and was great to have a bike wash off when we got back, a little muddy!

Great site rules, just loved the peace and quiet.

Being on the farm was fab, to see the pigs etc just super.

Great owners, super place, would love to go back.
