Summertime at The Alders, Home Farm.

General

  • Peaceful and spacious park in the Vale of York
  • Nine miles from York via the White Rose cycle route
  • A short stroll from the pub in the village of Alne

Picture yourself in a quintessentially English scene, basking with a drink to the pleasing thunk of leather hitting willow as you gaze out over the village cricket green, followed by a relaxing stroll through gorgeous sun-dappled woods and water meadows.

Should the above image capture your imagination, you'll likely approve of the setting of Alders Caravan Park, on a working farm in the village of Alne and surrounded by North Yorkshire's gorgeous countryside. This place is a fab base for woodland walks and wildlife spotting... and of course the aforementioned cricket, which takes place on the village green a short walk away.

This peaceful and spacious park has been kitted out with excellent facilities, including two smart modern (and pleasingly warm) shower blocks, a roomy covered washing-up area and a launderette with washing machine, tumble dryer and iron to keep your clobber in good nick. Barbecues are welcome on site, and at their finest when accompanied by beef, lamb or free-range eggs from the site's farm shop.

Bookings must not be for more than 14 consecutive nights.

Excellent location, excellent facilities, very accommodating09/03/2019

  • Camping pod (2 adults and 3 children)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The facilities were excellent and the owners were very scoommodstong. My friend wanted to stay in a pod whilst I had a campervan. They had allocated us a pod right near the parking area for the pods so we were able to sleep next to each other and we didn’t feel separated.

    The shower facilities were excellent and unlike many other sites, you get a bit of privacy in the mornings as they facilities consisted of separate toilet cubicles and ‘ensuite’ style Shower rooms that had their own toilet and sink. It makes the entire morning routine much more relaxing and pleasant as you don’t need to shower whilst the person next to you is in the toilet.

    The location is great - 20 minutes in to centre of York. The village itself was very picturesque and the local pub (which is working walking distance) was pleasant.

    Dog walking options right from the campsite were great and unlike others I have been to - plenty of space to take him off the lead in the neighbouring field first thing in the morning without having to venture miles!

    Disliked: 

    Nothing - except not being able to stay for longer!

From the manager...

Many thanks for your kind words. I did come down a couple of times to make sure you were ok with where your van was parked so I am pleased to hear that worked out well.
Hope you can make a return trip sometime. (And stay longer!)
Best Wishes,
The Alders team.

Local attractions

In less than half an hour, guests will find all sorts of things to do: take to two wheels for a trip to York (nine miles down the White Rose Cycle Route), which is packed with brilliant stuff including the minster and Jorvik Viking Centre; steam through the North York Moors on a vintage train, or explore the wildlife and scenery of the Yorkshire Dales via Shanks' pony...

Holidaymakers can revisit Brideshead at Castle Howard palace and gardens, be transported back to the sights and sounds of World War Two at the Eden Camp Museum, and take in the grand National Trust mansions of Beningbrough Hall and Nunnington Hall, or the stunning walled gardens at Helmsley. If the kids start being beastly, you can always cart them off to the Flamingo Land zoo and theme park.

This being Yorkshire, you're never far from a bonny watering hole - and there are some cracking food pubs nearby, including Aldwark Arms at Aldwark, the Dunsforth at Lower Dunsforth and the Blue Bell in the village of Kirby Hill. Visitors can also see how the local ales are made at the Black Sheep Brewery, which naturally offers lots of samples of its award-winning brews.
