- Peaceful campsite on a North Yorkshire farm-turned nature reserve
- A 15-minute drive to central York, and 30 minutes to Castle Howard
- Secluded pitches near lakes for fishing and wild swimming
Pool Bridge Farm offers two peaceful grass campsites on a 12-acre field lined with ancient oak trees, and it’s a super base for exploring the North Yorkshire’s moors as well as its city attractions. Even though you’re in the middle of the countryside here, it’s only a 15-minute drive to historic York and all its museums, restaurants and riverside walks.
The farm itself is run as a mini nature reserve dedicated to preserving local wildlife, and guests have the chance to spot barn owls hunting and kestrels feeding – and if you’re very quiet, deer, foxes, and badgers might just show their faces. It’s also an exceptional fishing spot for anglers, who can net carp, tench and perch in two large lakes.
Thanks to the lack of light pollution, the site is in a dark-skies area. You can be pottering around Rievaulx Abbey or living it up among the bright lights of York, but on a sunny evening, do try to get back to base at nightfall to indulge in a spot of stargazing while cosied up around your firepit.
Modern amenities include a well-maintained toilet and shower block close to the Woodside Campsite and a few minutes’ walk from the Meadow Campsite, with a path leading along the side of one of the fishing lakes, so you can take in the scenery as you stroll to the facilities (best bring a torch too).
