General

  • Peaceful 35-acre rural site with ten acres of vineyards
  • In the village of Nun Monkton between Harrogate and York
  • Dogs welcome

What a lush setting… Yorkshire Heart Vineyard, as you might surmise from the name, is among wine vines in the Yorkshire countryside, in green and pleasant land. Set in the village of Nun Monkton, it spreads over 35 handsome acres, ten of which are made up of rich and leafy vineyards.

The site's location between Harrogate and York means it's remotely placed with many options for countryside walks, but also within easy driving distance of top North Yorkshire attractions including national parks, museums, historic houses and steam railways.

Shops, restaurants and pubs are easily accessed too: the Yorkshire Heart owners recommend the Alice Hawthorn Inn for its cask ales and fresh food, while the Anchor Inn at Whixley is known for its carvery.

Made up of spectacular vineyard and meadow surroundings, the site has loads of space for kids to run around safely and is in a remote location stellar for wildlife and stargazing. Barbecues are allowed: for easily sorted supplies, meander along to the several local farm shops including one at the end of the lane and another in Whixley. The nearest general shop is a mile and a half away at the end of Nun Monkton Lane.

Yorkshire Heart Vineyard is a basic site, with toilets and running water (about 200 metres from the camping field): please note there are no showers.

Dogs are welcome if kept on leads at all times.

    Area, view, access to York and supermarkets, there dogs were super friendly, owners were very nice and warned us of a party the next day and were accommodating and put them as far away from the rest of the tents as possible to reduse the noise. We are definitely planning to return.

    It was quiet and rarely disturbed, when seen always asked how things were and if there could be any improvements to which there were none. Also very helpful for example we ran out of cooking gas and asked if we could have a bbq the answer was yes and helped us keep it safe but most of all get it started as it proved difficult. They let us use some old bicycles as we had no other ways to travel and the nearest shop was 2 miles away.

    The peace and quiet! And the super friendly and very accommodating owners (and lovely dog, Jazz).
    They allowed me to rebook after a disastrous weather weekend, they didn't have to. 😃
    Masses of space for the kids and the dog, the meadow is stunning. I now hold a fabulous memory of my children running through it laughing. Money can't buy that.
    The rural setting makes stargazing and awesome experience, and listening to the Owls hooting to each other was pretty cool also.
    Local to York, the moors and maze.
    What more could you want?
    Thank you.

    Disliked: 

    Could do with showers but it does clearly say that there are non- so it was my choice to go ahead anyway. Not the fault of the owners.

    This is the second time we have stayed at this site, with two 4 year olds, plenty of space for them to run around and play, absolutely beautiful setting especially on an evening looking across the vineyard, and best of all there is minimal light pollution so you can sit and watch stars all night (weather permitting of course) the owner was very friendly too :)

    Not very good there was no hot water at all from arriving and up until leveing the staff we met on the day of arrival was very helpful and friendly but that's not the problem there were no lights working on the toilets at all we weren't shown were the portable toilets were for emptying portable loo. Then when we came back to the site on the Saturday night we found a group of young campers had setup were we drove round and a few more came in and set up tents the lit fires and run round with burning sticks like bloody idots then Sunday morning left there mess for the owners to clear away

    Lots of wasps, constantly around and goung in your tent. Cooking was a nightmare with wasps everywhere plus when we tried to sit and relax again being bombarded with wasps.

Local attractions

Stick around the countryside for walks and bike rides from here, or get along to market towns like Knaresborough and Harrogate, shopping and heritage cities like York and Leeds or day trips to famed North Yorkshire seaside towns such as Whitby and Scarborough.

Yorkshire Heart Vineyard's local village of Nun Monkton, set where the River Ouse joins the Nidd, is a handy base for miles' worth of gentle countryside walks or easy cycling: look out on the village green for the tallest maypole in England too. The Vale of York, North York Moors National Park and Brontë country around Haworth are all top options for nearby hikes.

Heaps of historical highlights are all around, such as the fab Minster at York, Castle Howard and its vast gardens, Newby Hall and the National Trust's Nunnington and Beningbrough Halls. For museums and history, the Jorvik Viking Centre in York, the World War II sights and smells at Eden Camp in Malden and the National Railway Museum, also in York, are all good options for family days out.

To steam around the Yorkshire countryside (much recommended), take a trip on the award-winning North Yorkshire Moors Railway on its 18-mile puff from Pickering to Whibty, or (and) the Derwent Valley Light Railway, on a gentle three miles around Murton Park.
