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, clean and warm 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 sofa bed: please bring airbeds for extra guests, as well as bedding, towels and your usual camping kit. A shower house with free hot showers 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 food and beer garden about 20 minutes' walk from the site.

    Bed was a bit uncomfy but what do you expect from a sofa bed

From the manager...

Thank you so much for your feedback and for choosing Partridge Nest.

*On the note about the sofa bed I've copied and pasted the info below from previous reviews:

The sofa bed dimensions are given in the listing details (188cm x 114cm) ) so for anyone reading this and planning a visit, if this wont be big enough for two of you then always best to bring a spare matress/airbed. We rent 4’ memory foam mattresses & bedding, to put on top, if requested, so the sofa, when laid flat is approximately a small double size (similar to a campervan bed) Alternatively bring your double airbed and just use the sofa as a sofa!

    Really friendly host. Everything we needed for a two night stay. Fire pit was a great addition and the little meadow area was loved by the kids, as was the hammock. It was great to have the en-suite toilet given we were travelling with a 4 yr old. Minimal facilities in pods but it is very clear on booking what is there and what is not so we were not disappointed. The site itself is relaxed, has great views and is a really good location for easy access to Sleights and the surrounding area. We will definitely return and would recommend.

    This place is amazing! It’s so beautiful, clean, couples and family friendly. Has brilliant facilities (spotless)! The owner was so friendly and kind. My partner decided to propose 💍 to me while staying there because it was the perfect setting. The owner even gifted a bottle of fizz for the occasion. I can’t thank her enough for this experience. Highly recommended and we will be making a point of returning when we can.

  • Camping pod (2 adults and 3 children)

  • Liked: 

    The location of the pods was amazing, gorgeous views and far out enough to feel secluded yet only a 10 minute drive into Whitby for a great day out. The hostess of the site was really lovely and greeted us on first name basis, very accommodating and ensured the site was clean and tidy. Not just your standard glamping trip, toilets were very nice and clean with extra little touches which was very nice. Gorgeous site with hammocks per pod, 100% would recommend!

    Disliked: 

    The bed was small, only a sofa bed which folded in half. Not a double and this made my nights sleep unsettled as we found there wasn’t much space for 2 and they weren’t very comfy. The pod itself was very spacious and could definitely fit a larger bed!

From the manager...

Thanks so much for your feedback Beth, I’m glad you enjoyed your stay.
Ditto the previous review ref the sofabed - our camping pods need to be spacious enough for a family to camp in and can fit up to 5 single airbeds alongside the sofa (similar to a large 5-6 person tent) so a large bed would limit the flexibility of the space. Guests can choose whether they’d like to use the sofa as a bed or just as a seat. We rent 4’ memory foam mattresses & bedding, to put on top if requested, so the sofa, when laid flat is approximately a small double size (similar to a campervan bed)
Thanks again for choosing Partridge Nest

    We loved this place!! The site is beautiful and so quiet, with only 6 camping pods and no other tents or campers. Really peaceful and restful. Its also very clean - not even any spider webs in the shower stalls! Plenty of hot water as well. There is heating in the pods, so we arrived in a downpour to a warm pod, which was lovely.
    The host is also very helpful and friendly!

    Disliked: 

    The sofa in the pod makes into a bed, but isn't really big enough for two. We were glad we had our air mattresses.

Directions


If you follow your satnav to YO22 5ES it will bring you directly here as we are at the centre of the postcode. The site is 1 mile from Sleights along Eskdaleside on the left. Coming from Grosmont it is 1 and a half miles along Eskdaleside on the right.

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 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 couple of riverside cafés as well as boating on the River Esk (from April to October) are two and a half miles from Sleights.

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)
