General

  • Award-winning and friendly Yorkshire stays with campfires allowed
  • Within 30 minutes of York and Harrogate
  • A short stroll from the village shop, pub and bus stop

The Hideaway is a small, relaxed and friendly site in North Yorkshire, offering chilled-out camping that's in tune with nature and doesn't cost the earth.

There are a small number of pitches in a six-acre field, which sits in a 110-acre farm surrounded by trees and bounded on one side by a stream. The site is rural, but only a stroll from the village shop, pub and bus stop.

The shower block is a new log cabin-style building, heated and with plenty of hot water. Preserving the environment and what's been achieved re this at Baxby Manor over the years is important to the owners, which is why when you come to stay at The Hideaway things may be a little different from your 'standard' site…

A biomass straw pellet boiler is used to heat the water for your showers, LED lights are used throughout the building and rainwater is used for flushing the toilets. The site also has a heat recovery system installed to make sure nothing goes to waste.

The Hideaway is a special, peaceful and restful place where you can spend quiet days away from everyday life. A haven for walkers and cyclists, and a perfect base for exploring the many historic, cultural and outdoor attractions of this lovely part of Yorkshire.

The site is about camping, the countryside and getting away from it all, and for those reasons there's a strict no noise policy for the hours after 11pm and before 7am: if you want to stay up late partying, this is not the site for you.

Local attractions

Ready to explore? There's plenty to do whatever time of the year you visit.

The variety of scenery around us provides endless possibilities for walking, cycling and touring: north to the vast open landscape of the moors; west to the green valley pastures of the Dales, beloved of famed local vet James Herriot, and Brontë Country; south through the farmlands of the Vale of York, to the city, with its minster, Jorvik Museum and the National Rail Museum; east to the Wolds and coast for fishing villages, Whitby and its clifftop abbey, and the traditional seaside resorts of Scarborough and Filey.

The city of York and the spa town of Harrogate are both within a 30-minute drive. Castle Howard, Beningborough Hall, Newby Hall, Duncombe Park and the abbeys of Byland, Rievaulx and Fountains and Helmsley Castle are all also within 30 minutes of Baxby Manor.

This part of Yorkshire supports many fascinating craft industries, particularly in our immediate area, where almost every village has its own wood carver and furniture maker - the most renowned of which is Robert Thompson - the Mouse Man - at Kilburn.

York attractions
Spend some time in historic York, with its quaint streets and world famous Minster. The Jorvik Viking Museum and Castle Museum will transport you back in time. Walk round the medieval city walls and down the famous Shambles (probably one of England's most famous streets) - take a river trip or visit the National Railway Museum.

And, when you need to refuel, why not visit Betty's famous tearooms, or discover one of the many pubs (reputedly one for every day of the year!), bistros and restaurants hidden in the network of streets.

Shopping
If you need a little retail therapy, York, Leeds and Harrogate have a great selection of individual shops, waiting to be discovered, along popular high street names. Just outside York, you will find shopping centres at Monks Cross and Clifton Moor and an enormous range of discounted designer labels for fashion and the home at the McArthur Glen Designer Outlet. There are colourful and interesting markets in all of the surrounding towns - one for every day of the week!

Evenings out
If you're not ready for a sleepy evening by the fire, there's a great selection of dining out in the area - the Balmoral in Husthwaite; the Fauconberg, Coxwold, White Swan, Ampleforth, Black Swan, Oldstead; Star at Harome. Or head into York, where there is something for every taste and budget - from bistro to rosette dining. Do a ghost walk, visit the theatre or see a film at the stylish riverside City Screen.

Out and about
A spectacular drive through the North York Moors takes you to the dramatic east coastline with beautiful Robin Hood's Bay, nestling between the cliffs, and Whitby, home of the ultimate fish and chips! Why not stop on the way in Heartbeat Country, and visit the NYM Steam Railway (Pickering to Grosmont)? Or go to Scarborough, via Castle Howard, the setting for Brideshead Revisited. A visit to the farm shop and delicatessen there is a must for self-catering or gift buying.

Head west and you are soon in the Yorkshire Dales, with its picture postcard images of drystone walls and dramatic countryside - real Herriot Country - with miles of walks ranging from gentle valley bottom to the strenuous 'Three Yorkshire Peaks' challenge.

Get active
This is the place for walkers and cyclists, and plenty of activities for all ages.

Riding stables are popular locally - there is a trekking centre just a few miles away, and there are several golf courses in the area. There is some great fishing to be had on the local rivers and fish lakes.

You will find go-karting at Monks Cross, and, further afield, a trip to Xscape will brush up your winter sports on the indoor real snow ski slope and ice rink.

For family fun, test your nerve on the large variety of rides at Flamingoland and Lightwater Valley Fun Parks.

Horse racing
