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 we reckon airmen of all ilks would have found the accommodation at highly shipshape.

Named after the airfield's nickname, nearby is a family-run company in the heart of 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, loos, 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.

    Loved our stay at Canadian Fields. Fantastic location.

    The staff were friendly and helpful from start to finish. Food in the restaurant was delicious and reasonably priced. Was great having food delivered to your tent too.

    Good play area to keep the kids occupied and large field for them to have an adventure.

    Toilets and showers were always clean and always had toilet roll and soap.

    Pot washing facilities were also good and clean.

    Disliked: 

    Dogs barking in the early hours and the geese gaggling.

    Also didn't like being completely surrounded by a very large group. Found it very intimidating and annoying that they did not respect the site rules and partied until gone midnight and burnt a hole in the grass with their fire. Owners did come and apologise the next day though which I found very courteous.

    Only other negative was the overflowing bins.

  • Non-electric grass trailer tent or tent pitch

  • Liked: 

    * Food option onsite takes stress out of arrival / departure. Staff work hard
    * Large field for children to play
    * Manager asked loud group with lots of children to be quiet

    Disliked: 

    * Hounds barking and Geese made a lot of noise at night
    * Facilities barely coped when we stayed (last weekend in August) due to number of travelers. Given the volume it would be good to see investment in toilets/shower rooms
    * Not really a peaceful getaway due to popularity when we stayed

    The site is in a nice part of the country and offers reasonably good onsite food. The staff work hard to support the restaurant however I believe the site would benefit from a slight price premium on pitches in favour of a cap on traveler numbers.
