Just outside the pretty village of Wass, a grassy lane leads to Carr House Farm with amazing views to the east, south, and west. Set on the edge of the North York Moors National Park and overlooking the Howardian Hills - an area of outstanding natural beauty. See the sunrise and the sunset and enjoy the sited barbecue for everyone to use. Please note this is basic camping and there is a chemical toilet cubicle in the field. No showers are available on site.
The campsite is ideal for a tranquil stay. In fact, the quieter you are the more chance to see a visiting deer along with other wildlife. Take a walk in search of the flora and fauna of the woodland. If you do not fancy cooking your own breakfast, you can order it on site. They even sell homemade sausages.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
