Welcome to our family-run campsite nestling on the edge of the North York Moors, the only site actually in the famously beautiful chocolate box village of Thornton Dale - the gateway to Dalby Forest with its family-friendly walks, views and picnic areas, adventure playgrounds, open air music venue and world-class mountain biking trails.
Take time to walk around the village or take one of the many local walks along the beck-side, by the village green, lake and woods. For the children there is a large playground complete with five-a-side/basketball area and skate/bike park. If you are feeling more energetic we offer mountain bike demo and hire and can organise a tailor-made guided mountain bike adventure to remember.
In the evening, wander into the village and unwind in one of our three local pubs. Alternatively, stay on site and relax under the stars.

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.
