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.

Depart: (2 nights)
