Set in the Vale of York near the market town of Thirsk (Darrowby in the James Herriot books), Otterington Park is a place to please all creatures great and small. Grownups can angle for a spot to land several fishy types at the park’s private one-acre fishing lake, while tiddlers can caper along the nature walks laid on exclusively for Otterington Park fry of all sizes. Then try a tramp along the stream or breaking out the hard-boiled eggs in one of the picnic areas: the park covers 25 acres so even solitary types should be able to find a secluded spot to sink down in.

Pitches here are on gravel, with electric hook-up and for tourers and motorhomes only; the park is unable to accept tents. But if you haven’t yet managed to get your own house on four wheels, Otterington has five camping pods available too with all mod cons: sheep wool insulated and double-glazed for warmth in winter, a foil layer under the roof so no sizzling in summer, and even a specially designed roofing material to cut down the noise of heavy rain.

Podders have access to covered washing up areas exclusively for their use, and there’s a heated amenity block with ladies’ and gents’ loos, shower rooms, a bathroom and disabled facilities. There’s also a parent and baby washroom, launderette and a play area for the tadpoles on site.

Open from 4 Mar to 29 Oct
