Brown Moor Farm: Pitched 4 man tent (photo added by manager on 20/07/2021)

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.

Your dog must be tattooed or microchipped.

    Its a great little site , with only basic amenities, that was never a problem for us. having said that the toilet and wash facilities were excellent. The site has the most beautiful views of the plains of the Yorkshire Wolds. I am very well aquanted with the area but was still amazed by how lovely the views were. I found the owners to be very friendly and more than happy to help with any of our needs.

    The main thing that i did like was just how quiet it really was , other than the odd noise from sheep or cows on the farm there was nothing

    Disliked: 

    Nothing really dislike i think next time i will put a little more thought into setting up the tent as there is a slope in the field. Owner said the ground is hard or stoney but i did not have any problems inserting a spike into the ground.

    Absolutely gorgeous rural campsite with divine views and plenty of cows and sheep. Greeted upon arrival with a lovely tx and some friendly chickens. Quaint little walk down to the field and wheel barrows are provided to transport your camping gear. We set up further down the field where its a bit flatter as the campsite itself is on a hill. We stayed during a storm and it was really fun and romantic!
    Donation box for eggs was a delight for breakfast and we loved the clean onsite wash room. In the morning the campsite owner came to greet us which was a really lovely touch to our stay. We will definitely be back with the children. Francesca and Martin 🙏🏻

    We loved this campsite! We were greeted by the friendly and helpful owner and her flock of curious chickens when we arrived and shown through a woodland area to the small but very picturesque camping field. Our pitch had stunning views over Brownmoor Dale and we had plenty of space for our tent and an area to sit and cook outside. The facilities are basic but clean and well-stocked. We had no issues with the hard ground: we took a mallet to help with our tent pegs and slept on sleeping mats and it was all fine. Our only regret was not waking up in time to see the sunrise! We're already planning another visit to check out more of the walks in the local area.

    Excellent. Very relaxing, peaceful, back to nature campsite with a lovely view. Lovely, clean toilet facility with sink. Delicious eggs (and honesty box) for breakfast. Can't fault it and hope to be back in the future. Little girl (2yr) loved it with space to play and run around. Hosts are lovely & friendly and happy to help.
    Ground is hard (as you are warned) so take a little mallet or a firm soled boot to get your pegs in!!

    View of the valley was lovely, communication was great, and the bacon butty brought to the tent was perfect on a Sunday morning whilst packing up. Ot was also a perfect location for our event (mtb marathon)

    Disliked: 

    The whole pitch was very slanted, which made it hard to find a good spot.
    The floor was extremely harm and stony which made it hard to pitch.
    The water was recommended to be boiled as had not been tested and it was drink at your own risk, in the heat this was not a suitable option as we were having to wait a long time for the water to be cool enought to drink. Bottled water was available at £2 per bottle, due to the heat we had no option but to buy as it was cold water , which was frustrating.

From the manager...
