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.

Please note that all pitches on this site have electric hook-up so the appropriate additional charges apply.

A lovely site in a village setting.

This review is for Slingsby

A lovely site in a village setting. Easy walk to local facilities and the local pub which serves good food made you very welcome. LOcals also very friendly. Good dog walk opposite the site follows the route of an old railway line which was flat. Felt the facilities on the site were good and were kept clean at all times but I felt as if the showers were starting to show some wear and tear and would benefit from a make over. Having said that could not fault anything and really enjoyed my stay.

The wardens couldn't have been more helpful. The shop was well stocked good fresh bread daily. The house next to the site had home baking for sale. Pity the bus service was so limited but it won't stop us returning.

Local village with a friendly village pub serving meals and good beers.

This review is for Slingsby

Local village with a friendly village pub serving meals and good beers. Very popular so meals need to be booked. The village has one small shop selling newspapers and a small amount of items. Nearest town is Malton with a good supermarket and local shops. Good bus service from Malton to the Coast and York. Good walking area in and around Castle Howard in an AONB.

Nice level site with spacious pitches.

Nice level site with spacious pitches. Great area for walking with lots of places to visit in vicinity. Also great for walking. Very close to spectacular Castle Howard and various National Trust properties and easy access to historic York. We will certainly return to this lovely site.
