General

  • Secluded wild camping with spectacular views of the Yorkshire Wolds
  • A 15-minute drive to Malton; 30 minutes to Flamingo Land
  • Part of an organic working farm with access to footpath and Wolds Way

It may not be as well-known as the Yorkshire Dales or the North York Moors, but those in the know will be aware that the Yorkshire Wolds is an area that’s just as enticing for walks and other outdoor activities (and it’s generally less busy too…)

On the edge of the Yorkshire Wolds is Brown Moor Farm, an organic working farm with livestock including sheep and free-range hens. Pitch up at this rural site and you’ll have access to several local footpaths at the bottom of the dale, with a link to the Wolds Way too. There are plenty of cycle routes around if you prefer to tour on two wheels – and some spectacular country views to gaze out at once you’re safely back on site in the evening (with secure lockable cycle storage available on request so your bike can have a rest).

The camping field faces south east for some great sunrises and has simple facilities in the form of a toilet block (cleaned daily), waste water facilities and a fresh water supply. Bottled water can be made available on request for a small charge.

Pitches have a slight incline and in parts are uneven; they are on grass and chalkland, so you’ll need to wear suitable footwear around the site. They’re dark by night too, so bring along a torch. Dogs are welcome, but are to be kept on leads at all times. Barbecues are permitted but must be raised off the ground (blocks can be supplied on request).

There are several pubs within a few miles for drinks and food; more options are up in Malton, 15 minutes’ drive away, along with shops for self-catering supplies.

    View was amazing. There's a public footpath that runs close to the site for an easy hike. Site was a very quiet field, everyone was respectful and we had about 20 feet on either side between tents and PLENTY of room for more. Hostess Claire was very welcoming and gave good advice about the area. She even herded away a stray cow that wandered into the field. Bathroom facility was very well cared for. The drive in was gorgeous, and the local village inn has amazing fried chicken and pies.

    Lovely, rural location with beautiful views. Quiet site with good, clean facilities. Friendly welcoming host. Site is stoney so you need some padded camping mats or airbed. Not a problem for us but good to be aware of.

    Amazing views all around the campsite, great short walks just down the hill. The host was inviting friendly and offered more than above and beyond with extra services. All amenities were clean and well kept a long side the farm which were beautifully kept. My daughter Eve managed to quickly stroke a friendly chicken that were wondering freely. I would love to go back again.

    Disliked: 

    The only disadvantage to this pitch were that the ground was quite rocky which made it slightly difficult to pitch the tent in certain areas.

    Brilliant site with fantastic views. The host was great - email on the day of arrival with instructions and then a warm welcome with a cool bottle of water. Well signposted from the road (we wouldn't have found it otherwise).
    The views were amazing and such a peaceful place.
    Toilet was nice an clean.
