The Pickering people have it sorted. The Vale of Pickering Caravan Park is AA North East Campsite of the Year 2013, is crammed with trees, shrubs and flowerbeds, has views over the North Yorkshire countryside, and washrooms you’d 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. The camping field has spacious tent pitches in the camping field, or roll your caravan or motorhome onto one of the roomy hardstanding electric pitches instead – either way there’ll be plenty of room for the kids to have a kickabout.
For food, there are two pubs within strolling distance 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.
Security barrier locked at 11.30pm and re-opens at 6.30am.
