Keep your North Yorkshire holiday plans on track at Old Station Caravan Park, a quiet, well-established holiday park on the site of a former railway station. Set on the eastern side of the Yorkshire Dales National Park in a rural setting, this site is on the edge of Masham, a lovely little town with cafés and pubs to peruse at your leisure.
This family-run site is roughly a 20-minute walk from the town centre, where two breweries – Theakston’s and Black Sheep – are on hand for beer fans who want to see where their favourite ales are crafted. If you’re not up for the walk, or want to get out to more far-flung destinations, there’s also a bus stop just outside the gates that can whisk you off to various places without the need to drive.
Some of the things you may like to visit nearby include the Dales peaks of Ingleborough and Whernside (both of which are visible from site), the famed cheese producers of Wensleydale and heritage spots like Fountains Abbey. York, Harrogate and Ripon are all easily doable for day trips too.
On-site facilities include a small shop, a laundry room, a washing-up point and a well-maintained heated amenities block. The team at Old Station Caravan Park pride themselves on their attention to detail and doing their utmost to ensure a splendid stay, so just ask if you've got any queries.
Open from 03/01/2022 to 11/30/2022

It's really quite a breeze to get to Ripon (20 minutes' drive) – the cathedral city can be reached by car simply by driving south for a while down the A6108, and there’s also a bus service that departs from Masham several times daily that should get you there in about half an hour. Want a sense of what it was like to be banged up in the 1800s? Make tracks for Ripon’s well-reviewed Prison and Police Museum.
Fountains Abbey (25 minutes) is another must-see for all fans of history. The 12th-century abbey itself was all but destroyed during the dissolution of the monasteries under Henry VIII, but its striking ruins still stand today against a brilliant backdrop of 800 acres of meticulously-tended water gardens.
For food-focused jaunts, meanwhile, you could set your sights on Pateley Bridge (30 minutes), home to The Oldest Sweet Shop in the World (certified by no less an authority than Guinness World Records), or alternatively stick to savoury flavours in Hawes (50 minutes), where cheese is on the agenda at Wensleydale Creamery.
