  • Popular and peaceful countryside site a short drive from York
  • On the Way of the Roses 170-mile coast to coast ride
  • Adults-only farm site; dogs and barbecues permitted
Seeking serenity in scenic countryside but get antsy if you’re not close to the bright lights? Hold that thought. City, countryside and a coast to coast cycle route are all features of very popular and very fab Yapham Holds Farmhouse Campsite, which will see sorted those who ditheringly fancy both urban and rural on one break. The farm is nicely rooted in rural North Yorkshire countryside that verges on the Yorkshire Wolds, but is a grand and easy drive into also very fab York (or an even simpler Park and Ride trip to York from the bus station near the farm in Pocklington, which has additional services to Beverly and Hull.) Bring your bike too if poss: Yapham Holds is right on the Way of the Roses 170-mile coast to coast ride from Morecambe to Bridlington and a couple of miles from the six cycle routes weaving around the countryside from the nearby market town of Pocklington. Yapham Holds is popular for its added little touches as well as its location, like flowers and handwash in the spotless loo and shower block and the knowledgeable welcome from hosts Louise and Nigel who can advise on all there is to do in the area, from museums to York ghost walks. The site is home to Billy, a friendly cat who is likely to come and say hello during your stay.

Tara M. The reviewer booked through Pitchup.com

Camping pod

Liked: The pods were clean and the bed comfortable. Having once been a tent camper, it had all the basics but you can still add your own 'camping vibe' to it which we really liked. The arguments of putting a tent up long gone. Rock up, relax and enjoy. The facilities are faultless. Toilets and showers are spotless and pot wash area is covered from the elements with fridge and microwave. Louise and Nigel are quite literally the best campsite owners we have come across. They make you feel welcome and come and talk to you which we love. Also, the sunsets here are beautiful. Already booked our next stay!

Disliked: Nothing at all.

Non-electric grass pitch

Liked: the cleanliness, the location, 1m from a brilliant canal walk into Melbourne, 1m into nearby Pocklington town for drinks, eats, great pub at 1m at Fangfoss with superb landlady Sally,

Disliked: dog owners walking their dogs right up to other tents not appreciating at all that not all campers want to meet their dog, personal space should be respected, tent pitches are very close, I reckon when full it would seem overcrowded

Recommend to friends Visit again

From the manager: Thank you for your review, and so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. I am sorry that you were disturbed by other campers with a dog, but some things are out of our control. With reference to the pitches ours are nearly 10m wide which I feel are more than adequate for giving you plenty of space, and I feel do not feel overcrowded when full.

Small, friendly and quiet site, highly recommended.

Electric grass pitch

Liked: Very welcoming on arrival, had everything needed for our overnight onward journey.

Disliked: Couldn't see any identifiable recycling bins. 2 toilets and one shower in each facility could be a problem over a busy period but thats only our thoughts. (Not a dislike as we didn't have a problem on our stay).

From the manager: Thank you for your review, and pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay.

Non-electric grass pitch

Liked: Very peaceful with lovely toilet/shower block and washing-up facilities. We had a chilly weather week and spent time in the warm washing-up area reading all the leaflets and file! It was good to have the microwave and free freezer facility too. Nigel was very helpful when I needed WiFi fairly urgently and a very friendly Host. We used our bus passes to get from Pocklington to York and Beverley, which was nice and relaxing.

Disliked: It would have been nice to have recycling bins - we took our recycling home.

Recommend to friends Visit again

From the manager: Thank you for your lovely review, and pleased to here you enjoyed your stay with us. Rycycling rubbish is something I have tried very hard with, but I struggle to get everyone to do it! so we collect all the rubbish and then it gets sent away to be sorted and recycled.

A friendly welcome was nice to this lovely quiet, peaceful campsite. Plenty…

Local attractions

Pretty market town Pocklington is well-served with pubs, tearooms, restaurants and gift shops as well as supermarkets, and it's also got a skate park for guests travelling with youngsters or who want to revisit their childhood roots/skinned elbows. More placid but also very impressive pursuits lurk among the lily ponds and lakes of lovely Burnby Hall Gardens just outside Pocklington: the UK’s national collection of hardy water lilies lives here, but kids will likely be more open-mouthed among the giant fish that dwell in the gardens’ two lakes and take food directly from the fingers of awestruck guests. Step into the Stewart Museum afterwards for a look at the collections of former hall owner Major Percy Stewart’s eight grand tours in the early twentieth century – lucky old Major S crossed every continent on his travels and hauled back quite the collection of artefacts, many of which are now on display. North Yorkshire, York and surroundings are top spots for holidaymakers who like historical houses and museums; outside York, award-winning Eden Camp on a former POW camp near Malton tells many tales of World War II, and both Harrogate and Leeds, around an hour’s drive away from Yapham Holds, are crammed with historical highlights. In York, hang out with the Vikings at the Jorvik Centre or take a wander around the National Railway Museum or the Yorkshire Air Museum on Halifax Way, the biggest independent air museum in the country. And surely it’s essential to see York Minster and York Castle Museum too…? Fifteen miles north, eighteenth-century Castle Howard in the Howardian Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is a right royal day out by bus from York’s Station Avenue or by train from the main station. Towards Hull, dive into another topping attraction at award-winning marine centre and aquarium The Deep at Sammy’s Point, where seven species of shark swim among the thousands of sea critters in the aquarium tanks.
