Butter Hill Caravan Park: View over White Horse

General

  • Small North Yorkshire site with views of the White Horse of Kilburn
  • In the North York Moors National Park, 10 minutes' drive to Thirsk
  • Two pubs within walking distance of the site; Cleveland Way close by

Whether you’re off to the North York Moors National Park to walk the Cleveland Way, mountain bike around Sutton Bank or tread carefully around abbeys and museums, Butter Hill Caravan Park is well situated to get going, as it's on the edge of the national park – with the 109-mile Cleveland Way trail around 10 minutes’ drive away (and it has quite the reputation for sublime scenery around the fringes of the moors).

Look up and you’ll see a well-known North Yorkshire landscape… this small site is just below the White Horse of Kilburn, a chalk figure cut into the side of the hill. It’s 25 minutes’ walk away from the site for a look up close, and there are also other interesting nooks a short walk away, including the Mouseman Museum, Café and Visitors Centre (home to a collection of Mouseman furniture) two minutes’ walk away.

On site, there are water points, but for some fancier potions to wet your tastebuds, there are all types of refreshments in the surrounding pubs. The site is on the edge of the village of Kilburn, so the local pub/restaurant is two minutes’ walk away. There’s another good pub in Coxwold, 30 minutes’ walk away or five minutes’ drive. As for shops, Thirsk, 10 minutes’ drive away, is your go-to.

Please note

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

There is no reception on-site: on arrival please contact the number provided on your booking confirmation.

No bachelor/bachelorette parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Guests are advised to bring a good quality torch with them as parts of the campground are unlit.

    Disliked: 

    The cost against the facilities as no toilets or showers and even though the site was situated in a rural area it could have had security cameras for the safety of guests.

    Nice location. Clean. Pretty level, didn’t use our levelling ramps. Dogs allowed.

    Disliked: 

    Okay dokie…the ‘site’ itself has no lighting and no real security just a chain hooked over a piece of wood. You have to walk to the one water point, wasn’t too much of an issue this time as only us there. Owners didn’t meet us on arrival even though they asked for an arrival time, we had a call the following day saying they had knocked on. Not sure where the owners were located. The price is the real downside. Having come from Rother Valley at £23 with a fully serviced pitch/toilets/showed/shop etc…the £25.50 cost here is far too expensive as there is nothing there! The local pub is within walking distance if you go in the evening bring a torch!

Local attractions

Flick back through the pages of history a little… this area’s a fitting place to take a look at times past, whether it’s roaming around the Tudor Newburgh Priory Estate (five minutes’ drive) or stopping by Byland Abbey (10 minutes) while on your cycles through the countryside for a look at the ruined gothic architecture.

To continue your historic tour, you might want to plot out your route to The World Of James Herriot (15 minutes) for a museum all about the famous 20th-century vet… onto Thirsk (10 minutes) for a market town packed with museums of all sorts… or Ampleforth Abbey (20 minutes) to see how Benedictine monks once lived inside the monastery. Helmsley (25 minutes) is another market town where the past runs strong, as it has a castle, walled garden and abbey.

But how about hiking and biking too? Sutton Bank (10 minutes) is a Dark Sky Discovery Site by night, but by day, the spotlight is on its walking, cycling and mountain biking trails. Handily, for those of you without your own wheels, there’s bike hire available.

Monk Park Farm Visitor Attraction (five minutes) has a smaller one-mile walk for those of you who have little legs in your group, as well as interactive animal activities.

Must see

  • Rievaulx Abbey (8.3 kilometres)
  • Rievaulx Terrace & Temples (NT) (8.6 kilometres)
  • Duncombe Park (9.7 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Rievaulx Terrace (8.6 kilometres)
