General

  • Scenic spacious site on the edge of the Yorkshire Moors National Park
  • Two playgrounds, indoor play area, bike hire and pitch and putt
  • Award-winning amenities, licensed shop, and homemade cakes for sale

Families, couples and even the family dog, get ready to strike gold. Popular Golden Square Touring and Camping Park on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park is an absolute gem of a site – safe, scenic, spacious, well-maintained and with enough to do to keep guests of all sizes busy for days.

Once the kids are persuaded to leave the two outdoor playgrounds, indoor play area, pitch and putt and football field, countryside walks and trails start direct from the park; seaside frolics at Scarborough and surrounds are an hour away, and a sports centre with indoor pool is five minutes’ drive down the road. Those who prefer to take to two wheels can hire bikes on site and ask the Golden Square owners for info on the best cycling and mountain bike trails in the area; there be loads.

Away from the hum of activities, Golden Square has glittering little touches all over: two luxury stonebuilt and heated toilet and shower blocks – winner of the local Loo of the Year accolade – as well as two disabled/family bathrooms. An on-site licensed shop sells caravan accessories, toys, games, groceries and essentials like bread and milk (it sells daily newspapers and homemade cakes too; a golden opp for stretching out in the sun, perhaps…).

Pitches are warm, sheltered and kept secluded by specially planted trees, hedges and shrubs; the park has also been designed on three levels so that even in the height of the summer season it doesn’t feel crowded.

And as it’s North Yorkshire, the views at Golden Square are gold-standard too: moorland, forest and farm stretching all around and into the Yorkshire moors.

    Lovely clean and quiet little site. The only thing was it was advertised as having an indoor play area but this has now closed. We certainly were not put off though and the kids loved the outdoor play areas. Shower block was cold but spotless. Staff were very helpful and friendly.
    Would definitely go back and recommend to others.

    The stay at Golden Square was excellent! Great facilities for the kids compromising of a small football pitch and 2 play areas!
    The toilet and Shower facilities were very clean and well maintained.
    With regards to the site itself was again very well maintained and peaceful.
    Wouldnt think twice about staying here again.

    Disliked: 

    The only very minor downside is that it is a decent walk to the nearest pub if you wanted a change of scenery which is a pain when you have a 5 year old that doesnt like walking too far. However i wouldnt say this was a deal breaker!

    Site lovely and clean and well kept the wardens are very polite & helpful. Large dog walk field on site bonus with 2 terriers! Hot showers and toilets very clean & tidy 2 shower/toilet blocks on site so never too busy. Shop selling essentials on site very welcome. Picked a fully serviced pitch which was away from the throng of other caravans and had a lovely view of the countryside afar. Would book that pitch again for sure.
