- Wild pasture camping with spectacular views and plenty of parking
- Wildlife haven - look out for pheasants, hares and a deer
- Three miles from Whitby and 2 from the North York Moors National Park
Waipori Campsite is a quiet retreat in a rural location, surrounded by pasture and with spectacular views up to the Esk valley and over to Blue Bank and up to Hawsker,
There are pheasants, hares and a deer (and lots of smaller creatures) living in the field; for this reason, the owners let the grass grow long and only mow paths and pitches to preserve the environment. This also guarantees plenty of privacy to your pitches. The field also has a little path leading to a central location with communal seating.
The site provides the essential facilities for your stay: a single toilet, a water tap with mains drinking water, and lots of peace and quiet. There are no showers, so please bring your own portable one or do without for a couple of days.
In the village of Sleights, about a mile away, there's a post office and small supermarket, Radford's butcher and deli, a very good fish restaurant and takeaway, a Bothams store (the famed bakery) and a pub.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
