Campsite group Independent campsite
Campsite Type Working farm

Set in a farm of about 20 hectares, the main campsite field is sheltered all round with thirty level pitches. An additional field of sixty pitches is available in high season, with good views of the moors and the North Yorkshire Moors Railway.
Please note that these site fields have no electric hook-ups.
Generators may be used provided they are reasonably quiet and not used during unsociable hours. Please switch off by 8pm.

The farm is situated in the heart of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park and is an ideal base for walking, cycling or simply relaxing on site or in the village of Goathland, a few minutes walk away.

The farm is a mix of arable and livestock, so please keep dogs on a lead at all times. Access to additional viewpoints along the railway can be made by arrangement with the owners. Please do not trespass on the railway.

Goathland is served by the North Yorkshire Moors Railway (station is about 15 minutes walk from the campsite), which runs along the valley from Grosmont, south to Pickering, a small but busy market town.

There description is that it is a working farm but we found the pitches had far to much "farm yard waste" and was not safe for our two year old Grandson, the other fields were too boggy after recent rain. My advice is to look around the site first and check it out before parting with any money as there NO REFUNDS GIVEN. We did find cheaper alternatives with better facilities.
