Wethercote Farm Campsite: Open field location

General

  • Small family campsite at a working farm on the North Yorkshire Moors
  • Thirsk and Helmsley both 15 minutes’ drive; Castle Howard half an hour
  • Countryside viewss; walks to Rievaulx Abbey and Sutton Bank from site

It’s not often that you find a campsite with its very own ruined abbey within walking distance, but Wethercote Farm Campsite is that rare beast. Surrounded by amazing open views, this relaxed and peaceful spot is an hour on foot from the atmospheric remains of Rievaulx Abbey.

The camping pitches are located on the fields of a beef, sheep and arable farm fringing the North Yorkshire Moors National Park. There’s always plenty going on in neighbouring fields and there are lots of animals around, including Herdwick lambs in spring and the resident farm dogs. Because of the other animals, your well-behaved canine companions are welcome, but must be kept on a lead at all times.

Facilities around the camping fields include a shower and toilet block with hot running water, a washing-up shed and rubbish and recycling areas. Drinking water taps are scattered around the site and firepits are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

The lovely market towns of Helmsley and Thirsk are both roughly 15 minutes’ drive away for sticking up on goodies from the supermarkets, and a drive in any direction will lead you to delightful country pubs with gastronomic menus.

    Lovely clean and peaceful campsite. Couple of fields (one for club members and one general with only three pitches so nice and quiet) and both give you plenty of space and great views. Nice little washing up shed with logs, eggs and jam available (honesty box) and a shower/toilet room next door. The site is very eco friendly with recycling plus a couple of completing toilets which were really handy for the non-club field as right at the entrance and useful when the main one is in use.
    Worth noting that there’s no shops or pubs in reasonable walking distance but the hiking nearby is great. Lovely walk to Rievaulx Abbey through a peaceful wooded area (part of the Cleveland Way) which takes about 1.5 hours at a gentle pace. Loads of other walks and we’ll come back and check them out again one day.

Local attractions

Wethercote Farm Campsite is a handy overnight stop for hikers on the Cleveland Way National Trail (15 minutes’ walk), and within a five-minute drive you are at the top of steep Sutton Bank for views of the mid-19th-century chalk Kilburn White Horse; on clear day you’ll also have panoramas right across the Vale of York. At the Sutton Bank National Park Centre (both five minutes’ drive), there’s a café, small store and bike hire as well as lots of visitor information about this spectacular part of the world.

You can walk to Rievaulx Abbey (an hour’ walk) for a wander around the lovely cloisters, and then move on to Rievaulx Terrace (another 20 minutes) for views back over the abbey grounds. York (50 minutes) is a treasure trove of history, from its Gothic Minster to the medieval cobbled street of The Shambles, lined with dinky souvenir shops.

There’s more history to be discovered at Castle Howard (half an hour), the setting for many a TV drama, with tours of the house and gardens designed by John Vanbrugh. Thirsk has also had its moment of TV fame as home of ‘The Yorkshire Vet’ documentary series and The World Of James Herriot (15 minutes), with displays in a vet’s restored 1940s home and surgery – and for a day full of fun on adrenaline rides, head for Flamingo Land Resort (40 minutes).
