General

  • Working farm on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors
  • Very close to the Cleveland Way: one field from the site
  • Dog-friendly site

Captain Cook fans and Cleveland Way walkers: park your pitch at friendly and family-run Kildale Camping and Barn for a North Yorkshire hiking and history base.

It’s on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors, with the Cleveland Way a mere field away, and is four miles from Cook’s childhood home of Great Ayton – you can see the Captain Cook moorland monument from the farm, along with seriously stonking views of the Hambleton Hills and Yorkshire Dales.

Kildale Camping and Barn has been a working beef cattle and sheep farm for over 60 years, and the friendly family team here can point you in the right direction for all sorts of North Yorkshire stuff, from local pubs to moorland walks. The farm has toilets, hot and cold water, and meter showers taking £1 coins. Unlimited car parking (at the farm, not by pitch) is included.

Canine campers are welcome, but please keep them on leads at all times.

    We absolutely loved our stay at Park Farm back in September. Owners are lovely and very accommodating. Great facilities with shower, toilets, kitchenette etc. When we arrived on a Friday for the weekend we were lucky enough to be the first ones there so got to pick a pitch, we had the choice out of 2 areas, one that you can park your car next to your tent and one where you need to park it just on the other side of a small cobble wall (but its still very close) we chose to park in the area without our car as it was very pretty and very enclosed which was perfect for our dog. Park Farm is close to a small village with a co-op and bakery etc. Only a short drive from Whitby pier too. Thank you so much for our wonderful stay, we would love to come back again.

    Friendly, helpful and a wonderful small back to basic campsite with a fantastic view. A few added extras of kettle and microwave in the barn was very useful. Toilet, showers, sink and kitchen area are all together in the one room but it didn’t bother us as campsite was quiet and the area was clean and tidy.

    Well kept site, peaceful, back to basics, toilets were clean and well kept, having a kettle, microwave, toaster, tumble dryer and fridge on site was incredibly handy! Also lots of spare towels, tea towels, cutlery etc Owners lovely, very helpful.

    Disliked: 

    The toilets & pot washing facilities in the same block was a mild issue - fluctuating shower temperature (expected where it's based) if I have to mention something!

    The views was absolutely incredible and there was many walks around to keep us occupied for the entire weekend whilst we was there. You are pitched up on a bit of a slope depending on where you decide to camp but this wasn't too much of an issue. The facilities were kept clean and tidy and the owner was very helpful in guiding us to the surrounding area.

Directions


From the south:
From the A19 take the Stokesley (A172) turn-off. Stay on this road for approximately 8 miles and take the third exit off the roundabout (marked Great Ayton). After about half a mile turn right (signposted Kildale). Follow this road for approximately 5 miles and when you have passed 2 railway bridges take a right turn onto the farm lane. Turn left and go up the hill. If you get to Kildale village you have gone too far.

From the north:
From the A19 take the A174 exit and keep left. Take the A172 exit and turn right; follow this for approximately 1.5 miles. At the roundabout take the third exit and go straight over the next roundabout. After approximately half a mile, turn left onto the B1292 (signposted Great Ayton), and at the road end turn right. Follow the road until you go over a bridge and bear left. At the next junction turn left and when you have passed 2 railway bridges, take a right turn onto the farm lane. Turn left and go up the hill. If you get to Kildale village you have gone too far.

Walking:
The farm is one field off the Cleveland Way. Coming from Osmotherley, the entrance is signposted before Kildale village.

Local attractions

Take to your feet to walk the Cleveland Way or the North York Moors, see the North Yorkshire seaside towns of Whitby et al, go surfing at Saltburn or plunge into the watersports of the Tees Barrage International White Water Centre – all within an hour at most of Kildale Camping and Barn.

Pick up the Cleveland Way at the village of Kildale for a 15-mile hike to Saltburn-by-the Sea; once there, there are more walks around the Italian gardens and wooded glens if you’re not too done in, or settle down by the fire in the 15th- century Ship Inn by the beach – possibly a much more sensible option with sore feet... The Saltburn Cliff Lift, the oldest water-balanced cliff tramway in the country, connects Saltburn-by-the Sea with the pier 120 feet below and runs daily in peak season.

Surfers and wannabes will find a couple of good surf schools and a surf shop at Saltburn, but if your watery pursuits lie in a different direction, make for Stockton on Tees and the Tees Barrage watersports centre, which has whitewater rafting lessons, canoeing, bell boating, sailing and powerboat trips.

Also from Kildale, the Esk Valley Railway takes about an hour to reach the seaside town and Goth haunt of Whitby. As well as its Dracula folklore, Whitby is known for its Captain Cook connections as it’s where Cook moved to from Great Ayton to learn the seafaring trade: take in the tale at the award-winning Captain Cook Memorial Museum at Whitby harbour. Whitby Abbey, set high on a headland overlooking the town, is also a handy stop for history sorts, and has a museum and interactive visitor centre.
