Champs Field Campsite is in the pretty village of Colton. Just 5 miles from York and 20 miles from both Leeds & Harrogate and their many attractions, yet once you are here you feel like you really are away from it all.
The campsite is on our working farm, Home Farm, where we have a Beef herd & chickens-a-plenty. The farm shop sells our beef products ( we also supply Waitrose), fresh farm produce from ourselves and other local farmers. So you really can stay on the farm and eat from the farm - a Colton Beef steak cooked over an open fire on the farm it was bred at - that really is zero food miles!
We love to see campers having a great time round the campfire on an evening, and you can bring your own wood or buy it from the farm shop. Thats how proper camping should be done.
The field was previously home to our pony, Champ, who lived to the ripe old age of 37 years old and overlooks the chicken field. It is a heritage field which means it has never been ploughed, and there are a few lumps and bumps - maybe theres treasure underneath! Children love staying at Champs Field as they can see the farm at work and run about safely in this enclosed campsite with lovely views across the countryside and our sunsets are simply beautiful.
The campsite is a lovely quiet place where everyone is welcome. The site is ideal for groups and exclusive use bookings are available though we ask for a quiet time from 11pm.
We hope we can welcome you here soon.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
