This is a small, family-run campsite, set on the former Husthwaite Gate railway station, situated under the Hambleton Hills and the famous White Horse at Kilburn. the campsite is in a unique and special location, it is set in a secluded level site, well sheltered but with great uninterrupted views over a special landscape. The owners welcome groups and extended families.
The owners have been moving everything on the campsite towards a sustainable energy strategy. Their philosophy is to reuse and recycle. There are an electric shower and toilet facility (using green electricity from the on-site wind turbine) as well as a small reception, and a shop and café area offering basic supplies such as beans, local sausages, fresh farm eggs, bacon, drinks, ice creams, sweets and chocolates, to mention a few. There is also tea, coffee and homemade cakes for you to try!

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.
