 This was our first stay here. We have an XL tent with a family of 5 and there was plenty of room on the plot. The toilets and shower rooms were always clean.

A very friendly and helpful welcome when we arrived. There is a spacious area for the kids to play. There's plenty to do in the area and has a great local shop and takeaway just 5 minutes up the road.

We loved it so much there, were already wanting to book again.

 Just had a great week camping here. Nice flat and well maintained field. Plenty of room between pitches and plenty of water points. Toilets and showers were clean and well kept.

Owner not obtrusive but there if needed. Picnic tables dotted around the field for anyone to use. May get busy at popular times of year. We will be back at some point.

Really enjoyed the stay. We don't use ehu but lots on site.

 Thank you for a great stay.

We arrived on Friday afternoon and found a lovely area to pitch the tent.

The reception was helpful and the farmers were super. Always around to give a helping hand.

We left the lights on in the car and ran down the battery but 2 jolly men came and saved the day allowing us to get back on the road.

The site was perfect for what we needed. Loads of room, facilities excellent and clean. The location was great, We had a day out on the stream and diesel trains so taxi to Pickering int he morning and taxi back. Was a tenner for 4 of us one way.

Great weekend break.

Reviewer: Lummo10 2 reviews from this member

 Fantastic site on a working farm but the campsite is not an after thought. It is very well looked after, 2 toilets and showers always spotless and clean 1 for 5 minutes for a shower, a wash up area under cover with lots of local info and useful telephone numbers.

The pitches are large so ideal if you have a large tent like we do and don't have to pay for 2 pitches if your family tent is over 5m long.

Very reasonable price per night including EHU. We only live local to the site but will be going back for weekend breaks for sure.

 This is a quiet site on a working farm, situated on a minor road. Very easy-going staff. Flat field with a hedge around most of it for shelter. Two shower/toilet/washbasin units and 2 separate toilets. Showers are operated by 1 coin meter for 5 minutes of very hot water. Small kitchen area (under cover) with very hot water and a freezer and an electric kettle available.

There ae EHUs available if you want that. Visitors were staying in a a mix of motorhomes, caravans and tents. There are also 2 'Pods' for hire. Some road noise could be heard at times, but it is a minor road, so was not really intrusive.

There are no specific facilities for children and the site is probably more suited to adults who are looking for a quiet relaxing site. The nearest pubs are in the village of Thornton Le Dale (2 miles away). Both serve food. There is a small 'Nisa' mini-market there too and several cafes.

There is also a small vintage motor museum there, which I found interesting. The larger village of Pickering is 4 miles away and has a Lidl and Co-Op supermarket. There is a scenic drive through Dalby Forest nearby and several antique/collectors' shops in the surrounding area, if that's your thing.

This is an ideal site for mature people wanting a relaxing break away from it all.

 We visited this site for the first time last weekend, what a great spot. Our friends hired a pod at the same time and they were equally pleased. The camping field was flat and the grass was well cared for, the hook up pitches were big enough to fit our quite large caravan lengthways with loads of room to spare. The facilities were immaculate yes it's 1 for a shower but it's more than enough time and what can you buy for a pound?

The pods were big enough for six people and they have the added bonus of a fridge, there only two it it's good value(there are also cottages to rent).

High Grundon is an excellent location with access to Whitby, Scarborough, York etc all within easy reach.

It's a great site in a pleasant part of the country, it's ran by friendly helpful people who care what you think.

We will definitely go back.

Great spot

Reviewer: Jamie1985 1 review from this member

 We had a fantastic 7days camping at this site. Very well presented lovely clean and quite site. Plenty of space between pitches with handy water taps behind out tent. Nice big open space for the kids to play, the owner is very friendly and always helpful. Toilet and shower blocks always kept nice and clean also covered area for washing up. Showers are one pound for 5 minutes. We didn't mind this as you always get hot water. Ideal site location too, few minutes down the road have lovely thornton le dale also Pickering where the north Yorkshire railway is based. Plenty of shops etc there. Whitby is a real gem spent a lovely day going round the harbour whitby abbey is definitely worth a visit. Robins hoods bay is also worth a visit kids enjoyed the beach there. All in all was a brilliant week at a brilliant site and couldn't ask for more. Will definitely be booking again in the near future. Thank you again
