Akebar Park: Lakeside view

General

  • Family-friendly park near Leyburn with 18-hole golf course on site
  • Within 20 minutes' drive of Richmond Castle and Jervaulx Abbey
  • Traditional Yorkshire pub on site serving food, local ales and wine

Golf fans, Akebar Park near Leyburn in North Yorkshire will suit you down to a tee: an 18-hole course is on site here for lengthy hours of teeing off.

History fans, Akebar Park will suit you down to a tee too, as it's within easy reach of some of North Yorkshire's top history highlights – Richmond Castle and Jervaulx Abbey are within 20 minutes – and the park's between the historic houses, museums and ancient landscapes of the North York Moors and Yorkshire Dales national parks.

Also sorted are nature fans (Akebar's in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), kids (there's a play park at this fab family-friendly site) and dogs – a three-acre canine exercise area awaits.

Akebar Park has been run by the same family for over 35 years and was recently taken over in ownership and management by the family's latest generation.

Also on site is the lovely-looking stone-built Friar's Head pub and restaurant serving bar lunches and evening meals – beer garden, blazing log fire and Yorkshire ale fans, this will suit you down to a tee too. (Please note that this is an independent business and not part of the campsite, so bookings will need to be made separately.)

Good site for wild families, good facilities not relaxing23/05/2022

  • Electric hardstanding touring pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Surrounding area is lovely and the facilities were good and fairly clean except for the chemical disposal point which compared to every other one I’ve used was disgusting. The shower was powerful but scaldingly hot and there was no gauge to change it .

    Disliked: 

    Scale of the site was too big for our liking and the children playing were racing around fast on electric scooters which is not the relaxing environment you want when visiting a nice rural location. We paid for 2 nights but left after 1.

Local attractions

Explore abbeys, halls and castles, pick up local produce at farmers' markets (pop into reception on site to find out details), or take off into the countryside for days of hiking, biking and fishing: all are easily done from Akebar Park.

Head to Helmsley and East Witton for Rievaulx and Jervaulx abbeys, both founded in the 12th century by Cistercian monks and both among the wealthiest abbeys in the land until being dissolved by the egotistical Henry VIII.

Jervaulx Abbey was also the place where Wensleydale cheese originated way back in 1150; see how it's made and have a sample at the Wensleydale Creamery and Visitor Centre near Hawes, then follow up with a sweet treat at the Brymor Dairy ice cream parlour near Jervaulx Abbey.

At Leyburn town, find more cheese and heaps of other tasty things at the farmers' market on the fourth Saturday of every month, and heaps of tasteful bits and pieces at its weekly Friday market, antiques centre and art and jewellery galleries. Leyburn's fitness and squash centre allows guests and also has a pool.

On the outskirts of town, permit the kids a day out among the chambers, tunnels and many hidden surprises at fabulously odd The Forbidden Corner in Tupgill Park.

Must see

  • Jervaulx Abbey (3.2 miles)
  • Richmond Castle (6.4 miles)
  • Easby Abbey (EH) (6.9 miles)

National Trust

  • Braithwaite Hall (5.2 miles)
