General

  • Camping pods on a small site within the North York Moors National Park
  • Secure, lockable and double glazed pods with electricity and lighting
  • In a wildlife haven with spectacular views

Would you like to nest for some time in this North Yorkshire setting near the coast at fangtastic Whitby? You should:Partridge Nest Farm is a friendly and serene little site with spectacular Yorkshire dale scenery, in the grounds of a peaceful private farm in the grand old North York Moors National Park a mile and a half from Grosmont– walkers' paradise and wildlife haven come as standard here too.

And there are pods… Swish newly built ones, sleeping up to two adults and three children or up to four adults, and safe, snug and secure with locks and double-glazed windows and doors. They have electricity, lighting and a heater indoors, and a barbecue stand and picnic table outside. Each pod has a sofabed: please bring airbeds for extra guests, as well as bedding, towels and your usual camping kit. A shower house with two wetrooms and free hot water is close by.

Also for guests' use on farm is Bill's Meadow, a one-acre field to kick a ball or run around in, or (top pick), sit dreamily and contemplate Aislebyside and the smashing valley view below (the Grosmont to Whitby steam train puffs gently and frequently along here in season). Visiting critters can be spotted from here too, so look out for deer, pheasant or partridge from your green Yorkshire base.

The village of Sleights is a mile away for eats, drinks and supplies at its butchers, bakery and fish and chip shop (all highly rated by the Partridge Nest team) and at the small supermarket open until 10pm. There's also a pub with good pub grub and beer garden about 20 minutes' walk from the site, and a café opposite the supermarket serving all-day breakfasts.

    Loved the stay, was met on arrival by Carolyn, even though we were an hour late, she showed us round all the areas that we needed to know about.

    The pod was amazing so much space and the en suite was tremendous. We have stayed in pods before but this was defo the best.

    The wash room facilities were every clef and very close to the pods, the area around the pods is kept to a very high standard, you can use the farm as just a base to explore the surrounding areas or just chill its so reaxing

Heated pods with electric, clean facilities & great location. 20/09/2017

    Definitely recommend this site to Pitchup users. The farm is in a beautiful location just outside Sleights village and approx a 15-20 minute drive into Whitby.
    Caroline was very friendly and welcoming and greeted me personally on arrival to show me around and tell me about the site and the facilities. Caroline was also really helpful before my arrival answering my various questions by email and providing local information.
    The wooden pods were great and had several electric sockets & electric heating in the pod which was very efficient and welcome as the weather wasn't great during my stay. i liked the fact that the pods had secure lockable doors & windows so i was comfortable leaving my stuff in their while I was out.
    Cleanliness was top notch. Pods were clean and there was a shower block and a separate toilet block close by. Great little extras in the toilet block such as a communal freezer, microwave, plus washing up facilities with cloths & liquid already on hand, (great as I'd forgotten to bring any!).
    The location is lovely and quiet and I had great views out over the fields towards Sleights. I'll definitely be back thank you.
    No wifi but I didn't come away to use the internet so I was happy with my very good 4G signal if I'd needed it!

    On arrival we were greeted with great customer service. Given a quick tour around and shown to our pod. The site is very clean and well maintained. The pod was immaculate, had a small sofa bed, but big enough for two, a heater and power. Each pod had a table and bench outside and there are hammocks in the trees. A lovely fire pit area is onsite too. The showers and toilets were always clean and stocked with toilet roll. There is also a freezer for ice packs. It is an intimate setting with only 6 pods but that makes it romantic and peaceful. There are also a couple of friendly cats called ED and TC. It's only a 10 minute drive to Whitby, and about a 15 - 20 min walk to the local village, with a pub, butcher's, shop and bakery. It really does have amazing views of the valley. We enjoyed the little games they had in the toilet area.
    We would definitely recommend and if up in Whitby again would definitely stay again. Thank you very much.

Directions

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

Wanders into Sleights village should be first on the list for a lazy day from Partridge Nest Farm, for a poke around its antique shop followed by a bun in its tearoom or a pint in one of its pubs. The village also has a train station and is on the Coastliner and Arriva bus routes.

A mile and a half from the farm is Grosmont, where the North Yorkshire Moors Railway terminates on its way north from Pickering. The railway's old engine shed and the world's oldest passenger railway tunnel (built by railway George Stephenson, trainspotters) are here to have a nosy at, before a trip on the train's 18-mile puff through spectacular moors scenery to Pickering via Goathland.

Five miles from the farm is the seaside resort of Whitby, rightly popular around the country (world) for its Dracula association, excellent Whitby Abbey and its connections with Captain Cook, who learned the ropes of his sailing trade in the town.

Both the Captain Cook Memorial Museum and the replica of HMS Endeavour are very much worth a look in Whitby for nautical sorts; if your tastes are more Gothic, take the Dracula night walk, or turn up just before Halloween for one of the two annual Whitby Goth Weekends or the yearly International Bram Stoker Film Festival.

Must see

  • Whitby Abbey (4.3 miles)
  • The Moors National Park Centre (8.6 miles)
  • Dalby Forest Visitor Centre (11.7 miles)
