General

  • Peaceful camping location on an estate in North Yorkshire countryside
  • A 30-minute drive to the Yorkshire Dales; North York Moors 50 minutes
  • In the grounds of Grade 1-listed Forcett Hall, close to pubs and shops

Forcett Hall offers wild camping on a peaceful and scenic grassy site with a wonderful setting in the grounds of a Grade 1-listed mansion in North Yorkshire countryside. Its location is key here – Forcett Hall sits close to the North York Moors and Yorkshire Dales national parks, as well as the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and it's in an area that's packed with all sorts of leisure and cultural attractions.

You’ll need a car to explore, but in under an hour you can access dramatic North Yorkshire landscapes, and if the kids are really keen to head to the coast, you can be tucking into fish and chips on the prom at Saltburn-by-the-Sea in 50 minutes' drive.

Back at your rather glamorous base, the camping field has plenty of space for families and their pooch pals to potter around and take in the landscaped gardens. There’s no electricity (bring a torch), but simple portaloos are provided, and you can barbecue by your pitch.

Keep supplies topped up at the convenience stores in Eppleby (a mile away) or (Richmond (15 minutes), where you’ll also find a staggering choice of tea shops and restaurants. Cute local villages like Hutton Magna and Ravensworth (both 10 minutes) are good hunting grounds shops stocking regional produce, while your hosts recommend stopping for a pint or sit-down meal at the traditional pub in Caldwell (five minutes).

Escapism but nothing more.31/08/2022

  • Liked: 

    Quiet, large pitches on the outer edge of a field. Good views to the south, basic amenities but did what they needed.

    Disliked: 

    You “officially” can’t walk anywhere. The owners of the site obviously have nothing to do with the hall because there’s signs saying “no campers beyond this point “.
    We ignored this but if we hadn’t there would have been no where to walk our dogs.

    The area and view

    Disliked: 

    The pitch we had was a mess from previous campers with cigarette stomps, lumps of charcoal and bits of broken rubbish. The portaloo was never cleaned whilst we were there and absolutely stunk and there was only one sink for washing dishes and washing faces, it wasn’t even plumbed in l! so if you took the plug out the water would land all over your feet. Such a shame as it was such a beautiful place and could be a magnificent campsite however the efforts has just not been put in.

Wonderful family time!24/08/2022

    We had a wonderful 2 nights here, the surroundings are beautiful. This site only has 2 toilets (no showers) however that’s all we needed. There is a rope swing for the children, apart from that it’s just a lovely place for quality family time. My biggest recommendation for staying somewhere like this would be insect repellent. We had a lovely walk through the woods, unfortunately I was bitten by a horsefly and off work for 2 weeks. That shouldn’t put anyone off though as the rest of family were fine. Friendly people around the site who will chat if you want to otherwise your just left alone to enjoy your break. We would certainly consider booking this site again.

    Forget Hall was a lovely basic pitch surrounded by beautiful views and a great ‘Lake Walk’. Our host was very friendly and checked we were all settled in. The toilets were very cleans and well kept also.

    Disliked: 

    Not a great deal to dislike here, however with a little finesse and investment in a proper bin area and maybe echo loos it would gain a higher rating.
