 Absolute gem of a site. Lovely clean toilets, two great parks for the kids to enjoy.

Pitches all nice and flat, we were on the top terrace so the only downside was the kids being a bit further away from the park (too young to be unattended) but we were blessed that it wasn’t too busy so there was some open space at the top for them to play on.

The shop was well stocked and had everything we needed/ forgotten. Everyone on site was respectful of quiet times and seemed a very family oriented site.

Its position is very useful as a home base to visit an array of area’s in the north east.

Would definitely recommend and we are looking forward to going again this season.

 On arrival we pitched in our designated area between two randomly placed posts. Probably could have been better marked out as neighbours and randoms didn't seem too fussed walking through.

Not really within walking distance of anywhere.

Great dog walks

Nice clean washrooms

Good kids outdoor facilities - indoor left a bit to be desired.

Well stocked shop although min spend on card still a fiver (hello the 90's)

Staff very friendly and willing to help at every opportunity.

Will use again.

 A very pleasant campsite that I'm sure families with children will love. Unfortunately for us, we don't have kids, so it does mean you have to accept noise from the two play areas and all day long.

The facilities are really good and well maintained in pleasant surroundings with a variety of pitches.

The thing that made this a difficult stay for us was the lack of public transport and the distance to the nearest places of interest.

OK we walked to Helmsley and back, also into Ampleforth, but there are not many footpaths directly from the campsite, so we did quite a few miles on tarmac.

This site is much better suited to campers with cars and caravanners. I would recommend this site, but not necessarily for motorhomes, unless you are willing to pack up and drive out for the day, or stay on site the whole time.

 We stayed on a super pitch which was best pitch we have had loads of space and great location

The views were fabulous as you are quite high up

The showers and toilets were always kept clean

Wardens were always around

Very busy dog walks the best we have seen

Only stayed for 2 nights but could easily stayed longer

Definitely will go back again

Lovely site

Reviewer: Cazone 6 reviews from this member

 Stayed for 7 nights at this lovely campsite. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the facilities were excellent.

On arrival we were given a choice of 4 pitches and we chose one opposite the toilet block.

All the pitches were spacious and we had plenty of room for our tent and car. The only downside for us was the weather, it was torrential rain every night, but glorious during the day.

We were pitched at the bottom of a slope which allowed the water to run down the slope and under the footprint of the tent, this left the kitchen area flooded every morning.

The campsite was in no way to blame for this, rather our own inexperience of camping, lesson learned! Don't camp at the bottom of a slope if heavy rain is expected!

Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the area is beautiful, plenty to see and do, Thirsk and Rydale folk museum are highly recommended, as is Sutton Bank.

We will definitely return.

 Love this place, been a few times over the years with our kids as they get older, not too much to do but enough, that's what camping is about, the quality time.

All our kids need is a park and there happy.

Facilities are all very clean, always tidy and well looked after.

 Stayed bank hol weekend (fab weather). Lovely site, very clean & quiet (where we were near the entrance/shop).

First time staying here, wanted to be near Helmsley & managed to get last pitch!

Walked into Ampleforth, Sunday lunch at White Swan always nice. Visited Abbey tea rooms and also Byland Abbey (free admission), tea rooms across the road.

Will definitely book again, loved it.

Reviewer: Tarnlad23 1 review from this member

 We booked to stay 4 nights but had to pack up half way through setting up due to a phone call from work as someone tested positive for covid. I phoned the next day and explained and was told to ring back with my results and told I could return anytime and I wouldn't lose my money.

We returned and the site was excellent grandkids had a great time to playgrounds excellent walks the amenities are excellent and clean.

It's now our go to place for short breaks.
