General

  • Peaceful bell tent site on a working farm in North Yorkshire
  • A 30-minute drive from Flamingo Land Resort and 35 minutes to York
  • Barbecues allowed; 15 minutes’ drive to Malton’s shops and restaurants

What might you see at Horsley Farm, a peaceful site on a small, family-run working farm in North Yorkshire? Well, here, walks around the Yorkshire Wolds might be on the agenda and as for on site, that’s the place to catch some splendid sunsets and views over a buried motte and bailey grazed by Hereford cattle. With Flamingo Land Resort 30 minutes’ drive, York only five minutes extra and the coast 50 minutes away, lively days out are on the cards too.

Foodies shouldn’t be disappointed here, as the farm is on the outskirts of Acklam, where there’s a pub 10 minutes’ walk away. Malton (15 minutes’ drive) is where the real taste dive is though, as the town is named Yorkshire’s food capital and it’s easy to see why, thanks to its food festival, artisan food shops and restaurants.

After consuming your weight in local treats, the surrounding walks might look like an attractive option. Or perhaps you’ll want to just kick back on site with a full belly and the sounds of the cows and other animals in the surrounding fields.

Either way, whenever the hunger pangs kick in again, barbecues have the green light. The site has a sink supplied with cold water to help with washing up leftover dishes. Aside from that, you’ll also have access to a composting toilet.

    The peace and tranquility was beautiful. The composting toilet is spotlessly clean and there is fresh drinking water available. I am writing this review as I have my breakfast here in my tent. Had a horrible day getting here which included getting pick pocketed, a tyre blow out on the journey, then witness a terrible car accident. The owners were so thoughtful and the site is just nature at its best. Just Beautiful. I was also made a complimentary beautiful Americano coffee, and delivered outside my tent by the owners this morning, after a horrendous day before, to wake up to this kindness and the natural beauty this site offers. It has totally started my day in a positive happy way. I highly recommend this site and I will happy stay here again.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing to dislike. It’s back to nature basic camping at its best.
