General

  • Working farm on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors
  • Very close to the Cleveland Way
  • Dogs welcome

Captain Cook fans and Cleveland Way walkers: park your pitch at friendly and family-run Park Farm for a North Yorkshire hiking and history base.

It’s on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors, with the Cleveland Way a mere field away, and is four miles from Cook’s childhood home of Great Ayton – you can see the Captain Cook moorland monument from the farm, along with seriously stonking views of the Hambleton Hills and Yorkshire Dales.

Park Farm has been a working beef cattle and sheep farm for over sixty years, and the friendly family team here can point you in the right direction for all sorts of North Yorkshire stuff, from local pubs to moorland walks. The farm has toilets, hot and cold water, and meter showers taking £1 coins. Unlimited car parking (at the farm, not by pitch) is included.

Canine campers are welcome, but please keep them on leads at all times.

    AMAZING!!!! The view was outstanding, the staff was incredible the grass was so soft that I felt like I had to take my shoes off. Loved every minute and can't wait to go again! Magical!

    Disliked: 

    Unfortunately the showers only take the old £1 coins, but the staff at the site said that they're working on it. The only dislike about the site is that we had to leave.

Very relaxed, as was quiet. 05/06/2017

  • Non-electric grass trailer tent or tent pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    General relaxed feel, easy access to, but some distance from, major attractions in the area, so less busy.
    Camping barn looks great, particularly for solo travellers, or full use of it for a group function. not sure of capacity.
    Fridge in shower/wash up block brilliant.
    Separate paddock available if too many others.

    Disliked: 

    Sloping pitches, levels out where i was camped. May feel a bit claustrophobic if full

    what a week very enjoyable dave was very friendly waved every morning as he drove past our pitch and didn't mind standing for a chat even let my son and daughter sit on the tractor which made my sons day the facilities are excellent showers and kitchen area very clean I cant understand why people have complained about the showers and wash areas and toilets in same area they are separate within the building and the fact you have to pay £1 for a shower I have been to sites that charge £12.00 and still charge for showers and yes they do run cold if someone turns taps on but they run on spring water so they have same problem in the farmhouse its just how it is you shouldn't let this spoil the overall experience ITS CAMPING when I started camping the only facilities you had was a cold stream and no toilets you took a vessel with you and then buried it lol
    me and my family totally enjoyed the experience and as for the dogs barking at 6.30 its a working farm and no dog is that easy to stop barking
    to wake up in the morning and look at the scenery is the most special thing and plenty of things to do as everywhere is in travelling distance
    all I can say is don't read the bad reviews just go and enjoy the experience
    and hopefully as we are doing you will book again for next time and all times after
    I work in sales and understand customer service and value for money and park farm ticks all the boxes
    dave keep it up as far as im concerned you've got it right
    but may I suggest that you have two signs made for the showers stating that they are in use and to please not turn on taps that occupants can put on outside of door so hopefuly people will read respect and not turn taps on when in use this may help with water running cold
    steve jo Hannah kaiden and Danielle thanks for everything dave really enjoyed it

Directions


From the south
From the A19 take the Stokesley (A172) turn-off. Stay on this road for approximately 8 miles and take the third exit off the roundabout (marked Great Ayton). After about half a mile turn right (signposted Kildale). Follow this road for approximately 5 miles and when you have passed 2 railway bridges take a right turn onto our farm lane. Turn left and go up the hill. If you get to Kildale village you have gone too far!

From the north
From the A19 take the A174 exit and keep left. Take the A172 exit and turn right; follow this for approximately 1.5 miles. At the roundabout take the third exit and go straight over the next roundabout. After approximately half a mile, turn left onto the B1292 (signposted Great Ayton), and at the road end turn right. Follow the road until you go over a bridge and bear left. At the next junction turn left and when you have passed 2 railway bridges, take a right turn onto our farm lane. Turn left and go up the hill. If you get to Kildale village you have gone too far!

Walking
We are just one field off the Cleveland Way. Coming from Osmotherley our entrance is signposted before Kildale Village.

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Take to your feet to walk the Cleveland Way or the North York Moors, see the North Yorkshire seaside towns of Whitby et al, go surfing at Saltburn or plunge into the watersports of the Tees Barrage International White Water Centre – all within an hour at most of Park Farm.

Pick up the Cleveland Way at the village of Kildale for a fifteen mile hike to Saltburn-by-the Sea; once there, there are more walks around the Italian gardens and wooded glens if you’re not too done in, or settle down by the fire in the fifteenth century Ship Inn by the beach – possibly a much more sensible option with sore feet. The Saltburn Cliff Lift, the oldest water-balanced cliff tramway in the country, connects Saltburn-by-the Sea with the pier 120 feet below and runs daily in peak season.

Surfers and wannabes will find a couple of good surf schools and a surf shop at Saltburn, but if your watery pursuits lie in a different direction, make for Stockton on Tees and the Tees Barrage watersports centre, which has whitewater rafting lessons, canoeing, bell boating, sailing and powerboat trips.

Also from Kildale, the Esk Valley Railway takes about an hour to reach the seaside town and Goth haunt of Whitby. As well as its Dracula folklore, Whitby is known for its Captain Cook connections as it’s where Cook moved to from Great Ayton to learn the seafaring trade: take in the tale at the award-winning Captain Cook Memorial Museum at Whitby harbour. Whitby Abbey, set high on a headland overlooking the town, is also a handy stop for history sorts, and has a museum and interactive visitor centre.

From Whitby, go south for more surfing and guided ghost walks at Robin Hood’s Bay, then on to the bigger seaside towns of Scarborough, Bridlington and Filey. More kid-friendly fare can be had at the zoo and fun park of Flamingo Land in Kirby Misperton about 45 minutes’ drive from Park Farm, and there are several other family days out within an easy drive including Go Ape! at Dalby Forest and all the activities and attractions of the North York Moors National Park.
