Site entrance

General

  • Well-maintained adults-only site in scenic Yorkshire countryside
  • A five-minute drive from local village; 35 to Scarborough; 45 to York
  • Within 20 minutes' drive of the North York Moors

‘The course of true love never did run smooth, but hols at Midsummer Caravan and Camping do’ … is what Shakespeare probably would have said if he’d ever stayed at the adults-only site five minutes’ drive from pretty Yorkshire village Thornton-le-Dale and 10 minutes from Malton.

This is peaceful camping at its best. Not only is it in scenic countryside, it’s a total kid-free zone – there’s a strict over-21s policy, so days spent unwinding won’t be interrupted by hyperactive kids getting underfoot, and all that green space will be left blessedly open for quiet contemplation.

Dog parents, on the other hand, can certainly bring their furry kid along for the trip (though no more than one dog is allowed per pitch), and there’s a large field alongside the River Syme for walkies if cabin fever sets in.

If riverside strolls don’t quite cut it, the site’s well placed for longer jaunts: there are a handful of signposted circular walks of varying lengths around Thornton-le-Dale, and North York Moors National Park is less than 20 minutes away for lengthier and more challenging hikes, as well as cycle trails, horse riding and gliding.

Please note

  • Liked: 

    Location ideal for moors and surrounding area. Owners are friendly and helpful.
    Showers, albeit only one due to Covid were clean and functional, as were the toilets.
    Washing up area ideal and even a fridge!
    The water is lovely and soft and tastes great.

    Disliked: 

    A heater or radiator in shower room would be nice as floor gets very wet. But not a major problem. Though a bit chilly at 6am in September.

    Nothing really - the toilet and shower facilities were restricted when we were there (Covid related) but this didn't detract from our stay. We used the shower in the caravan and as we were on a fully serviced pitch this was fine.

Local attractions

What’s a holiday without sea, sand and (hopefully) sun? Luckily, no one has to find out here: the site’s 35 minutes’ drive from sandy stretches at the seaside resort towns of Scarborough and Whitby, so be sure to pack bucket, spade and (for the brave) a swimming cossie for when beach days beckon.

There’s more to both than splashing about too. History buffs may be drawn to Whitby, where Bram Stoker was inspired to create some of Dracula’s integral scenes and where the stunning Whitby Abbey sits, waiting to be explored. Down the coast, Scarborough has a castle, museums, golf courses and gardens, as well as the Scarborough Fair Collection (plenty of showman’s engines, not so much parsley or sage…).

For more vintage vibes, time stays to coincide with the monthly Mattewsons Classic Car Auction (check dates before travelling), then spend the rest of the hol touring stately piles: Scampston Hall and Gardens is 15 minutes away, Burton Agnes Hall and Sewerby Hall and Gardens are both within 50 minutes, and the stunningly cinematic Castle Howard is just 20 minutes from the site.

As there are no kids to take care of, the grownups can feel free to spend a few hours touring the Great Yorkshire Brewery (20 minutes away) and the Spirit of Yorkshire single-malt whisky distillery (40 minutes from base) – and making time for a tipple or two – before heading into York (45 minutes) for a night on the town.

Must see

  • Flamingo Land Theme Park and Zoo (3.0 miles)
  • North Yorkshire Moors Railway (3.4 miles)
  • Dalby Forest Visitor Centre (5.2 miles)

National Trust

  • Bridestones, Crosscliff and Blakey Topping (7.6 miles)
  • Nunnington Hall (9.8 miles)
