- On the Yorkshire moors beside the Pennine way
- Fires allowed in designated areas
Situated just off the Pennine way on the Yorkshire moors, Squirrel Wood Campsite is found in the hamlet of Ickornshaw, Cowling. The campsite is surrounded by trees and welcome guests in a lawned area. Campers can also enjoy a wild camping experience setting up the tent on a woodland pitch - perfect for a night chat in front of a campfire, beer in hand.
The campsite's location makes it the ideal base for exploring the national park of the North York Moors with its many trails.
On site, guests can find toilets, a washroom and a free hot shower.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
