General

  • Landscaped site with trees, shrubs and flowers
  • Immaculately-maintained heated showers and loos
  • Licensed shop, launderette, caravan spares and gas cylinders 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 would want to find anywhere.

The heated loos 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.

For food, there is a pub around 2.5 miles away, 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.

    Lovely area central for Yorkshire nearby Scarborough, Helmsley and Pickering . The site was beautifully maintained.Toilets and showers excellent. The site is ideal for families as there were loads of children that weekend. This was not a problem for us as they have a play area and a football pitch to keep them entertained.

    Also the field for walking the dogs was great too.

    Overall had a lovely weekend and weather was gorgeous.

Directions


From Pickering take the A170 towards Scarborough.

Follow the road down for 1.25 miles until you reach the park entrance.

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)

National Trust

  • Bridestones, Crosscliff and Blakey Topping (5.8 miles)
  • Nunnington Hall (13.2 miles)

Cycle routes

Find local routes on the National Cycle Network - over 12,000 miles of cycling routes.
