General

  • Peaceful family hideaway with pitches in a sheltered paddock
  • Close to Flamingo Land, Pickering and the North York Moors
  • Well-maintained amenities, firepit hire and charging facilities

Popular but peaceful, and small but perfectly formed... these are the excellent elements of North Yorkshire's Hobground Campsite.

This friendly and quiet site welcomes all ages to its serene location, with pitches in a sheltered paddock on a site set back a quarter of a mile from the main road. It's well placed for easy exploring: Pickering and Malton are both 15 minutes' drive away, York is 50 minutes, and the North York Moors National Park is 10 minutes to the north. Additionally – cue overexcited honks from the kids – the site is a mere three miles from the theme park and zoo of Flamingo Land.

Hobground has a well-maintained shower and toilet block, chemical disposal, charging facilities, ice pack freezing and a washing-up area. Firepits can be hired for an extra charge.

Guests can try out clay pigeon shooting on site, supervised by a qualified instructor, or shoot along to an archery session; just ask the helpful owners when you arrive.

    The peace and quiet,and spectacular views perfect .
    The welcome on arrival,and the friendly atmosphere was great,the site was kept clean at all times ,including the shower and toilets.
    We were lucky enough to choose our pitch,which we were most appreciated,the owner went out of his way to make sure everyone had an enjoyable stay which he succeeded.
    We have visited many sites in the 40 years of camping,and have found this site value for money,and would recommend this site to anyone wanting a peaceful holiday in beautiful surroundings.
    Thank you ,we enjoyed our stay just perfect,hope to visit again soon.

    If you're looking for peace and tranquillity with a little bit of comfort then Hobground is for you. The views are spectacular and you have the added beautifully maintained cleaning areas for your pots and yourself.

    It's a beautiful area and close to many attractions for those who get bored with said beautiful area and I can honestly say I did not. I had a choice of pitch and went into the field where there was a very friendly horse which despite my hound's request didn't throw the ball, although I was told by another camper that he had never seen a horse do such a thing *giggles*

    You can hire a firepit for a very reasonable price I understand, and indeed I saw such a thing with the lovely couple who played fetch with Gypsy for more than was strictly necessary without complaint. I did pinch their bricks when they left so I could have my BBQ on the second night :P They are they waiting for you, Mr Owner :)

    I had a brilliant time at Hobground, I would definitely return and soon. And whatever he's called can tell me his name and those of his lovely black Labradors that Gypsy was rather taken with.

    Disliked: 

    On the way in there is a sign which says "Visitors Park Here" Now, and I accept the owner may have overlooked this but "visitors" when it comes to pitchup certainly are not residents so I ignored the sign. He may have been having a bad day but I was made to feel a bit stupid at this oversight. Nonetheless he showed me where to pitch and as I have said I had plenty of choice and I was pointed towards the shower and toilet area.

    I would have liked to have hired one of the aforementioned firepits on the first night but I had no idea where to go to get one so I didn't. I was pleased the lovely couple before had left some bricks so I could lift my tin BBQ off the floor.
