General

  • Family-run campsite between Northallerton and Thirsk, North Yorkshire
  • A 20-minute drive to the North York Moors, and 25 to Lightwater Valley
  • Well-maintained camping on a small farm; shops 10 minutes’ drive

Torn between the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors? Book a pitch at Greystone Cottage Farm in the village of Kirby Wiske, and there’s no need to choose as you have easy access to both from its handy location between the market towns of Northallerton and Thirsk.

This is a small campsite on all-grass pitches on a working farm, and when you’re exploring you’re likely to meet free-range chickens, curious goats and horses – especially Charlie the (mini) Pony, likely to become a firm favourite with kids. While dogs are more than welcome, please respect the livestock and keep them under control at all times.

Fantastic views stretching across the Vale of York to Sutton Bank and the chalk White Horse (first carved in 1857) are an added bonus, and there are loads of family attractions within easy striking distance.

Pick up everything you need in Thirsk (10 minutes’ drive) supermarkets to spark up the barbecue, or head for the local village pub, which does a good line in traditional dishes (eat in or takeaway) with a range of local cask ales, ciders and lagers.

One last thing: this is wild camping with no fuss or frills, so please bring your own torches and barbecues.

    Very friendly, children loved the animals, clean toilet facilities, it was a little out of the way especially with small children but definitely worth the money for a one night stay, even two.

    Sam and Mike are great, we stayed extra nights at such short notice and they accommodated us even though they were busy!! Fabulous campsite, with such a great warm welcome and nothing was a bother for Sam or Mike.
    We will definitely be back! We all had a fabulous time and loved our stay here!
    The children had a great time and loved the open space and friendly people around us also :))
