General

  • Basic camping in a pasture with spectacular views
  • Plenty of parking
  • Communal seating area with barbecues

Waipori Campsite is a quiet retreat in a rural location, surrounded by pasture and with wonderful views. There are pheasants, hares and a deer (and lots of smaller creatures) living in the field; for this reason, the owners are letting 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 for barbecues and communal seating.

The campsite 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 stay a little smelly for a couple of days. It's the ideal location for a relaxing break, and you can enjoy the views up the Esk Valley and over to Blue Bank and up to Hawsker.

Please note

This site has no on-site shower facilities.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

There is only a single toilet (loo) available at the site. No shower facilities are available, please keep this in mind when booking.

    Beautiful site with lots of lovely wildlife

    Disliked: 

    Shame about the human wildlife on the second night.

From the manager...

Sorry about the noisy fellow campers.
Pitchup.com write the ad and I am unable to emphasise that mine is a quiet site.I always send out an email with the rules of the site but that is after booking.
Here they are in the hope that people reading the reviews will see them:-
1. NO MUSIC
2. NO NOISE AFTER 10 PM
3. PITCHES AND TENTS MUST BE AT LEAST 6M APART AND 15M FROM FIRE PIT (TENTS BURN VERY QUICKLY)
4. NO PITCHING BELOW THE BOTTOM TRACK IMMEDIATELY BEHIND THE HOUSES
5. NO OPEN FIRES EXCEPT IN FIRE PIT
6. PLEASE TAKE YOUR RUBBISH HOME WITH YOU
7. VEHICLES TAKEN ON FIELD AT YOUR OWN RISK (If it starts raining heavily drive it onto the nearby tarmac area)
8. MISCHIEVOUSLY DISCHARGED FIRE EXTINGUISHERS CHARGED AT £40
9. NO DOGS

Hope to see you again
Regards
Felicity
