Eco pod with double bed

General

  • Friendly Yorkshire stays with campfires and eco-friendly facilities
  • Within 30 minutes of historic York and Harrogate
  • A short stroll from the village shop, pub and bus stop

Seeking a green hol in peaceful countryside on a friendly site that doesn't cost the earth? The Hideaway at Baxby Manor is a small, relaxed and friendly site in North Yorkshire, on a six-acre field that's part of a huge farm, surrounded by trees and bounded on one side by a stream.

Settle down here for peaceful stays far away from thoughts of the office and the daily commute... this is a haven for hiking and cycling, and a handy base for top Yorkshire destinations like Harrogate and Nidderdale. The site's also a perfect base for tootling along to the many local historic and cultural attractions, such as the Beningborough Hall Georgian mansion and the splendid Rievaulx Abbey.

After a day spent wearing in your hiking boots, you’ll be pleased to note that the site’s shower block is a swanky log cabin-style building, heated and with plenty of hot water. Preserving the environment is important to the staff here: a biomass straw pellet boiler is used to heat the water for your showers, LED lights have been installed throughout the building and rainwater is used for flushing the toilets.

The Hideaway at Baxby Manor is reach-for-the-compass rural, but at the same time it's only a stroll from the village shop, pub and bus stop, so you’ll be able to pick up supplies without any worries. The on-site coffee van, local produce-selling shop and butcher have been hailed by guests too.

  • Liked: 

    The pod, the fire pit (each pitch had its own), layout of the site meant you had loads of space, you didn't feel crammed in. We were in a pod but all the tent pitches were level. There was a fridge for meat and dairy which really helped. The toilets were really good, kept really clean. Great site.

    Brilliant facilities, clean and well maintained showers and toilets. Fridge and freezer for essentials was handy. Staff where all lovely and very helpful. The added firepit for each pitch was great, loved cooking over the flame while looking the stars at night!

    Only thing that was a little annoying was the shower button didn't stay on very long. But that's it!

    Friendly, helpful staff. Nice, peaceful secluded area, but not to far to drive to places. The children loved it and it was safe for them to play. It was a little cold at night but it was fine with duvets and sleeping bags. We had a lovely, first time family camping trip!

    The clean environment friendly staff space between pods and tents

    Disliked: 

    Only wifi available bearvreception not available in the pods which was a let down

From the manager...

Thanks for the feedback and I am glad you enjoyed your stay and would visit again.

We have thought long and hard about providing site-wide WIFI but decided not to. The reason being that we would much prefer people came to The Hideaway to meet and make new friends, sit around the campfire watching “Flame TV” enjoying the peace and quiet and the abundant wildlife and surroundings etc rather than be sat in their tents and Pods on tablets and phones etc. We believe providing free super-fast WIFI around Reception is a good compromise so if people do need to be online they can be :-)

Look forward to seeing you again.
Barney

The Hideaway is fantastic, beautiful place to stay. Really Quiet ... 29/10/2018

    The Hideaway is fantastic, beautiful place to stay. Really Quiet and relaxing, the kids had lots of fun exploring and looking for bugs, birds and places to hide. It’s was perfect sat by the fire on the evening, watching the stars. The facilities were impeccable, I was blown away at just how clean and organised everything was, we were only there one night so didn’t get to use all the amenities but it seemed everything was catered for, I think a family could happily camp here for a good week or two and not crave for those home comforts to much.

Local attractions

If you're itching to show off your hiking boots, you'll be happy here – the scenery is fab for walking, cycling and touring: north to the open landscape of the moors (a 25-minute drive); south through the farmlands of the Vale of York (10 minutes), and west to the Dales, an hour away.

Or head east to the Wolds (also an hour) and coast for fishing villages, Whitby, and the seaside resorts of Scarborough and Filey, all within an hour and a half's drive). The spa town of Harrogate – a top spot for afternoon tea – is within a 30-minute drive, as is the city of York.

Riding stables are also a big here – a trekking centre is a few minutes' drive away, and there are several golf courses in the area. There is also some great fishing to be had on the local rivers and fish lakes, and for family days, test your nerve on the large variety of rides at Flamingoland and Lightwater Valley Fun Parks, both around 40 minutes away. You can also fly sky high with Microlight experience flights and lessons on the farm, run by proprietors David and Elaine.

  • Rievaulx Abbey (7.5 miles)
  • Duncombe Park (7.6 miles)
