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.

Eat Local

Many good short walks along local lanes and footpaths, although some were very muddy.

This review is for Slingsby

Many good short walks along local lanes and footpaths, although some were very muddy. The path opposite the site doubles up as the dog walk and leads to the lovely village of Hovingham. A short drive to Helmsley enables you to walk part of the Cleveland Way. We tried visiting Castle Howard but thought it was a bit too expensive (�9.95 per person for grounds only, �17.50 if you wanted to include the house), This was our second visit and we intend to make it a regular as we love the relaxed, friendly feel.

Local area beautiful. Easy to get to seaside too.

This review is for Slingsby

Local area beautiful. Easy to get to seaside too. We had extremely wet weather so walking limited by heavy rain and mud, mud, mud but site peaceful and pretty place to relax till sun came out! Facilities good. Local towns have nice shops and eateries. Interesting history. Convenient for Moors, Coast, Castles and Abbeys. Chinese Pub in Amotherby was good value. Pub in Slingsby is very popular, need to book at Friday and weekend we discovered. Got bogged on site but Steve immediately came to our rescue. Great Wardens.

Six miles from Malton with all its amenities and a couple of miles from CastleHoward.

This review is for Slingsby

Six miles from Malton with all its amenities and a couple of miles from CastleHoward. Lovely walks just outside the campsite, great for dog lovers. Walk to Hovingham and have lunch or a coffee at the Bakery. Pub in the village with pub food and a village shop, try the pies cooked locally. Great butcher and deli at Castle Howard for local food. Nunington Hall and Helmsley within easy driving distance. We are frequent visitors, there's something about the Howardian Hills, you have to visit to understand.

We travelled from the York direction to get to the site.

This review is for Slingsby

We travelled from the York direction to get to the site. During our stay we travelled towards York several times , and found some difficulty in getting across the A64 due to traffic density. Looking toward our departure we considered the A64 Junction was too narrow to allow our caravan to cross into the central area of the road and be safe. our Van is 7 mtrs long , total length of unit is 11.5 mtrs. After discussion with Warden we drove to Malton and joined A64 safely here . I feel the situation should be mentioned in handbook, or at least post a notice at the site office.
