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

There are just 40 pitches in a six-acre field, which nestles in our 110-acre farm, surrounded by trees and bounded on one side by a stream. We are off the beaten track, but only a stroll from the village shop, pub and bus stop.

The shower block is a brand-new log cabin-style building: it is heated and there is plenty of hot water! Preserving the environment and what we have achieved here at Baxby Manor over the years is important to us, which is why when you come to stay at The Hideaway things may be a little different from your 'standard' campsite…

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. We also have a heat recovery system installed to make sure nothing goes to waste! You wouldn't know any difference though...just read our reviews!

The Hideaway is a special, peaceful and restful place where you can spend precious days away from the hustle and bustle of 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. We are about camping, the countryside and getting away from it all, and for those reasons:

We have a strict no noise policy after 11pm so if you want to stay up late partying, this is not the site for you!

Open from 4 Apr to 1 Nov
