Spacious pitches

General

  • Yorkshire Wolds site in the old walled gardens of Thorpe Hall
  • A five-minute drive from Bridlington and 35 minutes from Scarborough
  • Guided nature walks, coarse fishing lake and five-acre playing field

Ever wandered around a splendid country estate and thought ‘yep, could handle living here for a bit’? Well, here’s your chance – at Thorpe Hall Caravan and Camping Site, in the grounds of a smart listed Georgian mansion less than a mile from the small Yorkshire village of Rudston.

This is still a working estate, so there’s plenty going on around this family-friendly (and dog-friendly) site – check out the events schedule to find out about guided nature rambles and other organised goings-on, bring kit for a day at the coarse fishing lake or gather chums for games on the five-acre playing field (ideally cricket, in keeping with your traditional English surrounds, but anything goes really…).

There’s a games room too, but if staying out in the fresh air is doable, then a quick explore of Rudston (including a stop at the Rudston Monolith, the tallest standing stone in the United Kingdom) should top the list, before driving off to the coast at Bridlington,15 minutes away, for sandy beaches and sea-view strolls.

And so to your digs… in the estate’s pretty walled garden, with plenty of space and shelter and access to a smart heated bathroom block that’s got disabled access and hot water available all day and all night. The small shop sells essentials such as milk and bread (and is a handy fount of local information too), and supermarkets in Bridlington are handily close by for all your barbecue bits.

NO TV SIGNAL19/09/2020

    Nice clean site, friendly managers

    Disliked: 

    NO TV signal. Normally we just switch on don’t have to tune the tv, after 2 hours tuning, the man cutting the grass told me you won’t get a signal here ,I went to collect a arial lead from the office and when I was connecting it the man in the next caravan said don’t waste your time they don’t work. I discussed this with the manager who told me they were in a huge dip so receiving a signal was impossible on some days, to be honest it’ spoiled our holiday as we like to watch tv on a night
    On pointing out they advertise (as do Pitch up ). TV there are breaking the law this lady believes as they don’t charge for it the it’s ok to state tv available. Before booking
    Be aware NO TV SIGNAL

Local attractions

Can’t get enough of these grand stately homes? There are plenty more options nearby to swan around in… Burton Agnes Hall is a 10-minute drive from base, Sewerby Hall and Sledmere Estate are within 20 minutes, and Burton Constable Hall (and its Capability Brown-designed grounds) is 45 minutes away. Perhaps the most famed, though, is the exquisite Castle Howard (45 minutes) – it’s starred on TV several times, playing the role of Brideshead (in Brideshead Revisited, twice) and Kensington Palace (in Victoria).

Steer away from the country piles with a trip to York, a little over an hour away, to meet vikings at the Jorvik Viking Centre, cruise along the river or take a sweet trip into the past at York’s Chocolate Story. Or perhaps head to Hull (50 minutes) for more museum action and sealife encounters with more than 3,500 fish that live at The Deep aquarium.

Swap both city and country for coast with a trip to Scarborough (35 minutes) for days on one (or two, or three…) of the beaches, a splash at the waterpark or peaceful ambles in the gardens. Filey (20 minutes) has another fine beach, and a clifftop golf course with cracking coastal views.

Must see

  • Burton Agnes Hall (2.8 miles)
