Overview

Between the North York Moors National Park and the Howardian Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this peaceful campsite welcomes you to Yorkshire.

Our pretty Slingsby Club campsite sits between the rolling Howardian Hills to the south and the Vale of Pickering and the North York Moors National Park to the north making the campsite a popular base for walkers.

Situated in a peaceful location on the edge of a village, the level, well maintained campsite has modern facilities including a laundry, dish washing area and a well equipped amenity block.

There are plenty of walking opportunities direct from the campsite. Slingsby village, for example, is within walking distance and surrounded by an intricate network of lanes, footpaths and bridleways.

The area is dotted with magnificent historic buildings. Take your pick from gems including the magnificent 18th century Castle Howard, Nunnington Hall, Newburgh Abbey, Helmsley Castle and Rievaulx Abbey.

Three of the area’s most popular attractions are within 15 miles of the campsite. There’s Flamingoland with its wild animals and wilder rides, the modern history theme museum – Eden Camp and the North York Moors Railway which runs a scenic route from Pickering to Whitby.

The medieval city of York, around a half hour’s drive away, is famous for its city walls, minster and a variety of museums. The city’s Park and Ride scheme accommodates motorhomes.

There are only Club Service pitches so the fee of £3.85 will apply at all times.

Worth Noting

Mobile phone reception poor. Site has especially hard ground so steel pegs are required.

WiFi

100% coverage cannot be guaranteed due to rural location, weather conditions and changing flora. These can cause variable signal strength. Hotspots are available. Prices.

This was our first visit to the site at Slingsby.

This review is for Slingsby

This was our first visit to the site at Slingsby. Great place to just relax or use as a base to go out for the day into York or up to the coast. Great for dog walking along the miles of public footpaths in the area. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The facilities are clean and tidy. We had a great few days just relaxing.

Great site for dog owners/walkers.

This review is for Slingsby

Great site for dog owners/walkers. Lovely dog walk down old railway line 2 mins away over main road takes you to Hovingham 2.5 miles gentle flat walk. Mostly older people (thankfully no kids play area) which adds to the tranquility. Great warden Steve Coates was so helpful when we arrived and had problems with our jockey wheel. Cant praise the staff enough...so friendly, makes you happy to return, which we will do.

This review is for Slingsby

Site is just on the edge of the beautiful village of Slingsby, and sits on what was the old railway yard, so it's nice and flat. Some great views from the pitches, the best being at the top of the site, furthest away from reception. The warden gave us a tour and showed us all the pitches before we decided on one with a view. This was a big help. Pitches are of a generous size compared to other C & CC sites we've been to, and you're allowed to put your 'van on 'nose first' if you like, to get the best views. The village is lovely, with The Grapes pub serving food and also dog friendly. It's just a short 5 minute walk from the site. We found TV and mobile phone reception to be good. Mobile phone drifted between 3G and 4G, which is pretty good compared to a lot of country sites. We visited Malton & Helmsley which are both @ 15 minutes by car, and further afield on the coast we visited Staithes and Whitby. Malt on was particularly good, as the annual food festival was on in the town. It was a cracking atmosphere, made all the more special cause the sun was out. We love Yorkshire anyway, and this visit to 'the wolds' has just reaffirmed how much we enjoy going back up there. We'd definitely recommend this site :-)
