Pods catching the evening sunshine

General

  • Peaceful location near the North York Moors National Park

Gorgeous pods on a spankingly clean and blissfully peaceful little site near the North York Moors National Park: you wouldn't want to miss the setup at Woodpecker Pods...

Based three miles from Kirkbymoorside, 15 minutes' drive from Helmsley and Pickering, and half an hour from both York and the Yorkshire coast, this friendly little park will have you sorted for warm welcomes and spectacular scenery, in an area full of outdoor activity spots for walking, cycling, mountain biking, horse riding and golf.

Each pod sleeps up to four, and comes with outdoor furniture, a firepit, and a patio to sit on and sip wine under the stars. A big covered deck communal barbecue is also on site, for mingling and cooking with mates or other guests. Wifi is available and the site has communal toilet and shower facilities.

    Spotlessly clean pods. Good powerful showers. Good park facilities for kids - swings, slide, seesaw, goal etc. Close to Helmsley town centre. Attentive host.

    Disliked: 

    The flies - nothing that can be done about that though. The humid weather made them worse I think - so take insect repellant otherwise they sell it in the outdoor store in town.

    Stayed for 2 nights with my son and his friend, when we arrived we was treated by the friendly owners who explained about the. Shower and toilet each pod had their own that was a bonus and was a great idea due to the current situation.
    The pod was very clean and enough space for the 3 of us. We found the beds extremely comfortable and all slept very well.
    There is plenty of land for kids to run about on whilst the adults cook on the Large communal BBQ and enjoy a few drinks.

    Cozy pod with great communal area within easy drive of many attractions and nice villages.

    Disliked: 

    The bunk bed rail height allows for skinny children like mine to slide beneath and slip from the bed up to their shoulders; this happened to the front and back of the top bunk to each of my twins. Another bar would solve this (we rolled up a quilt instead)
