 We liked everything!

The pitches are big with plenty of space in between. You feel close to nature and the place feel nicely rustic but well looked after.

There is a shop on site with just enough of what you need but full of tat and sweets for the kids to moan after every day but there is a lovely coffee cart that comes to offer lovely drinks and baked goods so you can have a treat as a family.

Toilet/shower facilities are really nice (super clean with a system of wearing show coverings to enter which I personally love!). Each site has a fire pit on it and tripod BBQ available to hire for £5.

There is a stream nearby and local pub, walks to do, nature to see etc. It's very dark at night so great for star gazing too.

The site is also super eco friendly and has thought of most things from chilling drinks in the stream to separating waste out to feed their chickens!

We loved this place for it back to nature simplicity and we will be back again!

 We stayed here whilst on a cycle touring holiday with our tandem, trailer and tent.

This a campsite we look forward to returning to and staying much longer - in our opinion it's pretty much perfect for what we like!

Pitches well spread out and separated by hedgerow/long grass. All pitches have a firepit. Really feel like you are camping among nature and the marked pitches give everyone space without it seeming regimented. Lots of hooty owls at night.

Facilities are truly fantastic. Beautifully set up, very clean etc. Excellent showers with large cubicles for privacy. Underfloor heating, and a drying room too which was brilliant. Good local info and leaflets. Small on site shop with a few useful bits and bobs. There is also a really good system for separating rubbish and recycling which encourages you to be responsible.

We had a really delicious meal at the Fauconbery Arms in Caxwold.

 We have just returned from 5 nights at this remarkable site, it more than lived up to all the great reviews it has received.

Itís location is ideal, weather you want the piece and quiet or just to walk or cycle in the beautiful surrounding countryside.

Lovely sized pitchers and the facilityís are first class.

Thank you for a remarkable break.

Reviewer: Helen98 25 reviews from this member

 The site has flat, mown pitches with longer grass between pitches. Cars are not allowed next to tents and there are wheel barrows to use for transferring kit. We have a trailer and it was OK just to wheel that to our pitch.

We chose this site because campfires are allowed, we bought wood from the site shop and hired a tripod with grill to make cooking over the fire achievable. (Although we always have campfires when camping we usual fail with cooking over them, so being able to hire these was a real plus for us. )

As other reviews have mentioned, the toilet and shower block was great, one of the nicest we've had on a campsite. Although the showers are the ones where you press a button in and get a short burst of water, the water is hot and if you hold the button in you can get it on for longer if needed.

There is a small site shop, a fridge and freezer thaat can be used (the freezer is only supposed to be used for ice blocks), a drying room, and books that can be borrowed / exchanged.

Our visit was really one of two halves. The first 2 days were peaceful, lots of empty pitches that children could play ballgames on, relaxing and quiet. Then we hit Easter Bank Holiday weekend and it filled up. We were in pitch T15, which we didn't realise was directly infront of a rope swing on the embankment behind.

As all pitches were now full this became the main site for kids playing. Would have been great if we had young children, but ours are now teenagers and - like us- got a bit fed up of the noise.

When we wandered around the site the pitches at either end, further from the amenities block, or those backing onto the stream, seemed to be more peaceful. On a more positive note, even when the site was full, after about 10 each night it was silent.

So, yes, it is a lovely site. Yes, we would come again and have already recommended it to friends. But if we did come again we'd definitely not choose pitch T15.

In the area we can recommend having a day out in York (never been before, a lovely city), doing the Solar System cycle trail (we hired bikes from Get Cycling in York), walking around the White Horse on Sutton Bank and visiting Rievaulx Abbey (expensive but it was stunning, and there was a falconry display on while we were there).

 Stayed here for 3 nights. Very well set out plenty of space between pitches. All had a fire pit which was great at night

Toilet block was very clean and blue cover shoes great idea.

Went with 2 other families and we had a great time kids loved the freedom they had to play. We love the peace and quiet

Great site hope to go back next year and explore the area.

 We spent 3 nights in one of the Hobbit Houses and had a fantastic time. The site is immaculate, well thought out and a really peaceful and friendly atmosphere.

The little shop is well stocked and not overpriced, the breakfast caravan on site is a great touch and having a fire pit for the evenings and to cook on was great.

We ate out at the White Swan in Ampleforth which had a great kids menu and very good food. Visited Sutton Bank and really enjoyed the center, with it's natural play park for children and amazing views.

We are definitely heading back here next year, cannot recommend highly enough.

What a lovely campsite. We're quite new to camping but have stayed at a few campsites since getting our new to us little pop up camper. I'm not the kind of person to write reviews but felt compelled to let everybody know what a brilliant site this is.

As the name suggests this is a hideaway, tucked away nicely from any major towns yet still close to York and Thirsk.

All on site amenities were clean, tidy and well kept. Blue shoe socks are provided so grass and dirt is not trampled into the toilets and shower blocks.

Our pitch, V3 was excellent. Plenty of room between the pitches for privacy and they're well kept. Barney was out with his lawnmower keeping the site up to scratch. Would have preferred an electric hook up but they was all booked for our trip.

We didn't really do much exploring of the local area we were there for the peace and quiet which we got in abundance.

The local wildlife was out in force whilst we were there. We saw a couple of squirrels (unfortunately grey not red). Loads of rabbits on site and woodpeckers in the woods nearby. There was owls in the woods at night screeching and hooting.

We took a walk along the stream and saw 2 prey birds circling the thermals above the farmers field, not sure what they was, they was quite big possibly buzzards.

All in all we loved it. The staff was really friendly, polite and helpful. Hopefully we can get booked back in for August time but I'd go in the middle of winter.

Have fun and happy camping.
