 Well, we were looking for somewhere quiet. No disrespect to family groups but we'd had enough of cabin fever at home and noise and bustle at cpadtal. Towns and just needed a break.

Couldn't have picked a better place. Been hard to find one of our old haunts

That had amy facilities open yet.

The site was in a great spot, just out of Thornton but a quick walk in if you want shops and some lovely walks. In the grounds of an old railway station with a lot of long term 'vanners who clearly knew each other well and made the whole place very friendly for us tourers. We got the first tourer hardstanding for our motorhome and it was great. Nice and roomy and very handy for the amenities.

Probably the best loos and showers we have come across. Bags of hot water great showers and plenty of cleaning products for covid sanitation.

Our hosts were friendly and helpful altogether the time spent on the site was a breath of fresh air and peace and quiet.

Did I say lovely walks too, the village is a picture and lots of walking on the doorstep with coast and countryside close at hand.

We will definitely call again.

 Lovely site, easy to get to and within a short walk from the lovely village of Thornton le Dale. Darren is really helpful and helped to put the caravan on to the pitch, nothing is a problem for him.

The site is well kept with a colourful array of flowers and plants. Facilities are excellent the showers are powerful with plenty of hot water and spotlessly clean

A good laundry room and separate washing up area both spotless.

The only down side is the ground is very hard which makes hammering the pegs in very hard work - you need a lump hammer!

We’ve been to this site several times over the last few years and the site is maintained at a consistently high standard

Darren is managing the COVID cleaning recommendations very well with clear signage and plenty of sanitisers around the site.

We will definitely be back.

 Booked to stay here as we prefer adult only / tranquil park sites and the location looked good.

Due to the time of year wanted a non awning pitch but were told they only had awning pitches available and we had to pay the extra fee (weird).

The ‘hard standing’ pitch we were given (their description not mine) was barely big enough for our van, which isn’t huge, with our car alongside, had it been summer and we had wanted to erect our sun canopy we would have had nowhere to sit out.

The pitches are very small.

I realise it had been a bit wet in the days before we arrived but didn’t expect a hard standing pitch to be quite so mucky, we had to put a small ground sheet down just so we had somewhere outside to kick off our shoes and rub our dogs down so as not to traipse all the mud into our caravan, and this was only after walking them (off site) for a quick wee.

The site is far from dog friendly, seasonal pitches, of which there are many, had anti dog signs up, have yet to meet any dog owner that can control when and where, their dog ‘does It’s business’.

The ‘facilities’ were clean but having a shower was not a pleasant experience, wet room style showers with nowhere dry to undress/dress, and whilst the water was hot the area was very cold, definitely needs more heating given the site is open through most of the winter.

We had hoped this site would be a great find in an area we love to visit but will not go back.

 Main entry to the site was via a barrier, for which a £10 deposit secures a swipe card. The facilities were within the drive up to the site ie before the barrier.

Very peaceful most of the time (some drilling as rendering being removed from the owners’ house) & there are lots of birds to identify & listen to! The pitches are quite close together & there seemed to be a lot of seasonal pitches, some with plant pots etc outside. Surrounded by trees/bushes, so quite sheltered if it was breezy.

An adults-only site, which at our age now we appreciate. The toilet/shower facilities were immaculately clean. In the ladies’, there were 3 toilet cubicles, one also containing a sink & a further 2 sinks in the outer section, opposite the entrance door.

There were 3 showers, wet-room style, each containing a rack for toiletries, a stool and a dry-cleaner’s-type zipped clothes bag on a hanger, in which to place your clothes so they don’t get splashed – a nice touch! The showers were the push-button variety, the shower heads had a slight facility to adjust the direction & spray, but after the first few bursts of cold water were VERY hot! There was no temperature control, so to wash your hair risks scalding your scalp!

There were various bins to encourage recycling, and in the laundry room there were tourist leaflets and a few books/board games/jigsaws to borrow if desired. I did consult a book on British birds to try & identify a particular one!

The washing up room contains 2 deep sinks, labelled up as 1 for hand wash(laundry) only, the other for washing up, but both sinks had washing up bowls & drainers. The water here was very hot too, but there was a warning sign about that. The water point & waste water point were at the end of the row where we were pitched; the chemical toilet point is outside the toilet/shower block.

The owners, Darren & Natalie are very friendly, and Darren in particular was very helpful. He showed us to our pitch, unhitched our caravan & helped push it into position.

When we were about to depart & discovered a fault with the electrical connections so the brake lights etc on the caravan didn’t work, Darren contacted a mobile caravan servicing guy, who came and checked things for us; the caravan seemed ok, must be the car/towbar. It was already past the official deadline for leaving the site, but Darren told us not to worry & allowed us to move to an unoccupied pitch. Since we could not tow the caravan until the electrics were fixed, Darren allowed us to keep the caravan there another night; we ended up going home via the garage where the towbar had been fitted, who were able to sort the problem by changing a fuse! We returned to the site the next day & collected the caravan, very grateful for Darren’s support!

We would love to return to this site on another occasion.

 Stayed at Overbrook as we like the all adult sites, have to be honest and say like other reviewers, that the site lacks behind some other Tranquil parks. We have dogs and the site is not really that dog friendly, you cannot walk them on the site and there is no dog walking area, you have to take them off site or through the woods or down the main road. Also there are dog signs reminding you not to let your dog foul on the verges.

I also have to agree that as other reviewers point out the shower room consists of three showers, one is fine but the other two are the size of a telephone box with no where to place anything - they do provide a plastic jacket holder to put your things in but getting washed and dried is difficult.

The site is in a lovely location and the village of Thornton-le-dale is worth a visit. The site would benefit from all service pitches and the pitches themselves could do with a make over as they look tired, overall we enjoyed our stay but the facilities let the site down.

Reviewer: Dave 418 35 reviews from this member

 We have stayed on this site before and can once again. this is an excellent the site. The owners were pleasant and informative when booking in. The pitch we given was a little tight length wise because the fence at the rear of the pitch was leaning slightly but I forgot to mention this when we checked out, a minor issue that didn't affect our stay.

The toilets and showers were warm clean and tidy with nice hot showers. Considering this was a winter stay the floors in the showers were kept clean, some thing other sites seem to struggle with.

The location gave us easy access to the village with its cafes and pubs. Days out without the van are easy with regular buses to the coast or the likes of Pickering Helmsley and beyond.

One of our favourite all year sites.

 A fantastic peaceful caravan site. Fantastic friendly owners. Shower/toilet block always spotlessly clean and tidy. A fantastic stroll into Thornton-le-dale with a stream running down the side of the road or you can walk through the woods into town. Lovely food at the pub. Fantastic ice cream shop in town too. It was a fantastic base for us as we had plenty of English Heritage castle and priories to visit. They also have holiday cottages to let too. Only negative depending where you are pitched some pitches look quite small

Reviewer: Bea27 14 reviews from this member

 Nice site situated within walking distance to the village of Thornton Le Dale and within easy reach of Pickering. The plots are of a reasonable size width-wise but could do with being a little bit longer so as not to be quite so close to the road. Arrivals and departures could be a little tricky unless you swing the caravan around almost sideways on and then unhitch or hitch up - if not you would be blocking the road to other vehicles coming and going for some time. The shower blocks are clean and in good condition but extremely small with no area for drying off/dressing or for keeping clothing/shoes dry; everything gets soaked. There is a plastic suit holder provided for placing clothing in but who wants to put their clothes into a bag that has had goodness knows what put into it? I can see the idea behind it but definitely needs a re-think. Also, there is only the one double peg to put things on and that holds the suit holder as well. I do wonder if these shower cubicles were ever tried out by the owner's to see how everything would work? I think not! The press button showers are not my favourite either but these particular ones were only on for a very short time so continually having to push the button and could get extremely hot at times too. All in all a pleasant stay (mostly due to the weather conditions) but have stayed on better sites costing far less and feel that it's the location driving the prices and not the site/facilities etc.

 My husband and I love this site. The facilities are very good, clean and modern. The pitches are spacious and level and the beautiful village of Thornton Dale is a few minutes walk along the road or though the wood. It offers two pubs both of which to great food and a fantastic bistro, as well as quirky shops and tea rooms. We are planning on visiting again this summer. However I do have rather an issue about one thing. Dogs. Walking them around the park is a big no no. This means that when we were there in winter and taking the dog for his last wee of the night, you are encouraged to go out of the park onto an unlit and rather fast road! I’ve never ever come across this before. They do not provide any facilities whatsoever for dogs. I begrudge paying extra for a dog when Despite ‘dogs welcome’ they do make it difficult for dog owners. I don’t understand why it is not allowed to walk a dog round the park when they have no where else for you to go. And instead of all the signs telling us not to allow dogs to foul the area, replace them with poo bins! I think the rules regarding dogs on the site are rather extreme, after all they are on holiday too!

Reviewer: Minddhyg 17 reviews from this member

 It's not surprising that this site gets a 9 out of ten rating! This is an adult only site. It is a very well kept site with lots of flowers and bedding plants, and it would be nit-picking to try and find fault. The owners are so helpful, hardworking and friendly, Darren even fixed our wifi connection for us. The toilets are always immaculate, the showers are the same with hot water in abundance. The is also a spotlessly clean dish washing area, chemical toilet disposal area and washing machine facilities. The site is easy to find and access roads are wide. The site does have a lot of residential seasonal pitches so it may be hard to book for a date you want unless well in advance.

The village is just a ten minute walk away and has a chocolate box feel to it. There is also what is stated to be the most beautiful cottage in Yorkshire there ask a local and you will find it. The Buck Inn is a must for a pie dinner and they make them in the bakery next door the selection is wide. Buses to Whitby, Scarborough, York and Leeds all leave from the village and are within easy reach and Flamingo Land is but a bus ride away. A visit to Goathland is a must ( make sure you get the correct bus some do not go there ). This is where they made the TV series Heartbeat. Scripps Garage and Funeral Services is still working and the Aidensfield Arms is worth a visit. There is lots of parking as well. The Police car used in the series is still parked up there outside the general stores. A steam train ride from Pickering to Whitby or the other way round is a must if you like steam trains.

We had a great holiday at Overbrook and would recommend the site.
