General

  • Family-run site a few miles from York
  • Full of local hikes and undisturbed byways
  • Restaurant on site in a heated Lapland tent

The Canadian Air Force crew who stayed at Yorkshire's Wombleton Airfield in WWII mightn't have had the luxury of safari tents to stay in, but it's fairly certain that airmen of all ilks would have found the accommodation at highly shipshape.

Named after the airfield's nickname, nearby Canadian Fields is a family-run company in Yorkshire's Ryedale, run by folk who want to share their extensive knowledge of this excellent area with other curious and like-minded peeps who come to explore it. It's in a pretty good location too, just a few miles south of York and a quick drive from the North York Moors National Park.

A favourite of guests is the Gi Sukawaka Restaurant in the site's heated Lapland tent, serving breakfasts and evening meals (eg, pie night for a fiver) as well as pot suppers and breakfasts to be heated up and had in one's tent. Picnic hampers stocked with local produce are available to take away.

There's also the Cedar Lodge, the main building, which has a shop selling homemade jams, chutneys, homemade cakes and quite a bit more; the lodge also houses extra showers, toilets, a washing machine and a tumble dryer.

Dogs are very welcome at and lots of walks are nearby; please just keep your pooch on a lead while on site.

There are showers on site a short distance from the safari tents.

    Staff attitude. Not directed to a pitch on friday night .. told to set tent up anywhere around outside of field. 1st spot chose and we were told to move as this was an electric spot which wasn't clearly marked. Told to pitch up next to a white car which we did. Got all stuff out of car and then told again to move as this was an electric spot which again wasn't clear.

    On the Sat night loads of otgers arrived and started pitching in centre of field which again wasn't what we were told on the friday.

    Asked staff for ice and was told to get out of the restaurant was they had a wedding type function on. Terrible staff attitude. Older couple hanging around near restaurant , seems like the owners watching everybody which felt unnerving and we didn't find it relaxing.

    Not quiet as kids running around all over.

    Limited shop items.
