General

  • Scenic spacious site on the edge of the Yorkshire Moors National Park
  • Two playgrounds, indoor play area, bike hire and pitch and putt
  • Award-winning amenities, licensed shop, and homemade cakes for sale

Families, couples and even the family dog, get ready to strike gold. Popular Golden Square Touring and Camping Park on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park is an absolute gem of a site – safe, scenic, spacious, well-maintained and with enough to do to keep guests of all sizes busy for days.

Once the kids are persuaded to leave the two outdoor playgrounds, indoor play area, pitch and putt and football field, countryside walks and trails start direct from the park; seaside frolics at Scarborough and surrounds are an hour away, and a sports centre with indoor pool is five minutes’ drive down the road. Those who prefer to take to two wheels can hire bikes on site and ask the Golden Square owners for info on the best cycling and mountain bike trails in the area; there be loads.

Away from the hum of activities, Golden Square has glittering little touches all over: two luxury stonebuilt and heated toilet and shower blocks – winner of the local Loo of the Year accolade, as well as two disabled/family bathrooms. An on-site licensed shop sells caravan accessories, toys, games, groceries and essentials like bread and milk (it sells daily newspapers and homemade cakes too; a golden opp for stretching out in the sun, perhaps…).

Pitches are warm, sheltered and kept secluded by specially planted trees, hedges and shrubs; the park has also been designed on three levels so that even in the height of the summer season it doesn’t feel crowded.

And as it’s North Yorkshire, the views at Golden Square are solid gold too: moorland, forest and farm stretching all around and into the Yorkshire moors.

    Everything! As soon as we arrived, when checking in, the staff were so friendly and helpful. There was generally a lovely atmosphere with the whole place - children laughing and playing together; adults sat chatting or joining in with the children’s games - just a lovely place, one to which we will return.

    Disliked: 

    The only thing I would say is that items in the shop were pricey, for example 70p for a Mars bar! I’ll just know to bring my own next time!!
