General

  • Landscaped site with trees, shrubs and flowers
  • Immaculately-maintained heated showers and loos
  • Licensed shop, café, launderette, caravan spares and gas for sale

The Pickering people have it sorted. The Vale of Pickering Caravan Park is crammed with trees, shrubs and flowerbeds, has views over the North Yorkshire countryside, and washrooms you'd want to find anywhere.

The heated toilets and showers are immaculate, there are private wash cubicles, an electric point for those all-important hairdryers and hair straighteners, and even a ladies’ make-up area. Best of all, there are ladies’ and gents’ baths – providing a long hot soak after a long hard day relaxing and sightseeing.

There are first-class facilities on site too, including a well-stocked licensed shop, a launderette, caravan spares and gas cylinders, a play area and a football pitch for the kids. A café was added in 2018, selling tea, coffee and plenty of homebaked goodies including croissants and breakfast items, sourced locally from the area wherever possible.

A pub is about two and a half miles away for food, and the clever people at Pickering also have a visiting fish and chip van once or twice a week, or you can pick up some fresh local produce at the nearby farmers’ market. Thornton Dale (four miles away) also has two traditional pubs so you won't be short of choice when it comes to satisfying all tastes and tums.

10/10 a gem of a site 23/09/2018

    This is a gem of a site,large very flat hard standing pitches with water and 10amp ehu.
    Staff are excellent and check in is very pleasant.
    Unisex toilets WOW!!! These are best facilities I have ever seen wet rooms with everything you need and spotlessly clean ,one disabled wet room one wet room with bath £1 to fill
    There is great dog walk at front of gate and a dog wash on site for mucky pups!
    There is a huge field near to caravan storage site which I believe is used for tents,but was empty on our stay therefore an excellent place to run our whippet for ten minutes.
    There is a cafe on site and a well stocked shop
    Excellent children's play area on site

    All in all this is probably the best site we have stayed on and is a credit to the owners and their staff,no wonder it has won awards and it rightfully earns 5stars from us ,you will not be dissapointed if you pitch up here

    Peaceful, especially after school holidays, children seemed happy when able to amuse themselves. Good access and not too difficult to set up camp.

    Disliked: 

    Could have had a few more chemical toilet disposal sites, but good for water and waste.

Local attractions

Trainspotters and sightseers alike will be chuff-chuffed at the North Yorkshire Moors Railway to take visitors on a steam-rollering 18 miles through the moors, with rural villages along the route - Goathlands was used as Hogsmeade in the first Harry Potter film and as Aidensfield in ITV’s Heartbeat - and with plenty of opportunities to hop off and go hiking o’er the moors.

The North York National Park has walking and cycling routes galore, with other sporty options near the Vale of Pickering taking in tennis, golf, horse-riding, sailing, mountain biking, fishing and watersports at Wykeham Lakes, or cantering at Snainton Riding Centre.

Savvy shoppers should sally to the nearby market towns of Pickering and Malton, or head towards York to spend the day at the Monks Cross Shopping Centre two miles from the city centre. And once the wallet is somewhat lighter, other recommended and less expensive days out in the area include taking in the World War II museum at Eden Camp, seeing the historic buildings at the Ryedale Folk Museum, or going to one of the many events at the Baroque mansion Castle Howard.

A visit to this neck of the woods wouldn’t be complete without a day at the seaside – visitors can stroll on the sands at fantastic Whitby, flit around Filey, browse through Bridlington or spend days at the country’s first ever seaside resort of Scarborough with its Italian gardens, miniature steam railway, casino, clifftop castle and kid-clamouring for seaside amusements.

Kids will also love the nearby theme park and zoo Flamingo Land, making like a monkey on the zip wires at Go Ape! or getting grisly at the York Dungeons after the big folk take in the architecture of York Minster and the history of the Jorvik Centre.

Must see

  • Dalby Forest Visitor Centre (4.2 miles)
  • North Yorkshire Moors Railway (5.6 miles)
  • Flamingo Land Theme Park and Zoo (6.5 miles)
