Pool Bridge Farm: Grass pitches

General

  • Peaceful campsite on a North Yorkshire farm-turned nature reserve
  • A 15-minute drive to central York, and 30 minutes to Castle Howard
  • Secluded pitches near lakes for fishing and wild swimming

Pool Bridge Farm offers two peaceful grass campsites on a 12-acre field lined with ancient oak trees, and it’s a super base for exploring the North Yorkshire’s moors as well as its city attractions. Even though you’re in the middle of the countryside here, it’s only a 15-minute drive to historic York and all its museums, restaurants and riverside walks.

The farm itself is run as a mini nature reserve dedicated to preserving local wildlife, and guests have the chance to spot barn owls hunting and kestrels feeding – and if you’re very quiet, deer, foxes, and badgers might just show their faces. It’s also an exceptional fishing spot for anglers, who can net carp, tench and perch in two large lakes.

Thanks to the lack of light pollution, the site is in a dark-skies area. You can be pottering around Rievaulx Abbey or living it up among the bright lights of York, but on a sunny evening, do try to get back to base at nightfall to indulge in a spot of stargazing while cosied up around your firepit.

Modern amenities include a well-maintained toilet and shower block close to the Woodside Campsite and a few minutes’ walk from the Meadow Campsite, with a path leading along the side of one of the fishing lakes, so you can take in the scenery as you stroll to the facilities (best bring a torch too).

    A lovely site with the lakes close to York. Peaceful and pretty. Very friendly people. You have to be aware there is no electric hook up. Toilets, showers and washing up facilities are basic but ok. A great site for a quiet getaway. We would come back again sometime.

    Awful Showers and Loo's. The block needs a total demolition job and rebuild. Couldn't locate where to empty the Loo cassette . Poor signage.
    Use this site for a PITCH ONLY. The facilities are VERY poor.

Local attractions

You can cycle into York (30 minutes by bike) along a bridleway accessed from the farm – there’s also a regular bus service passing the farm entrance. Stroll around Roman walls, tour the Gothic Minster and check out the locomotives in National Railway Museum York. Have a flutter at York Racecourse (both 15 minutes’ drive) and spend all your winnings in the designer boutiques at Designer Outlet York (10 minutes).

Alternatively, head off into the North York Moors National Park (50 minutes) for biking and walking over glorious moorland – to add an architectural element to your rambles, wander around the ruins of Rievaulx Abbey (50 minutes) or explore follies and temples in the landscaped grounds at Castle Howard (30 minutes).

If you’ve got kids on board, Jorvik Viking Centre is a top spot for its immersive tour around a replica Viking village (complete with smells), or you can book tasting sessions at York’s Chocolate Story (both 15 minutes). Older kids might love ghost tours of night-time streets, but younger children should probably stick to the cute goats and mini-train rides at Piglets Adventure Farm (20 minutes).
