This is a Certificated Site (CS). These select sites are small, privately run campsites that operates under the Club’s jurisdiction and can only accommodate up to 5 caravans or motorhomes and up to 10 trailer tents or tents, unless express permission has been given by the Club to accommodate more. They range from secluded Hideaways to fully facilitated family friendly sites, and are often found in locations where larger commercial sites are prohibited so you could be camping close to a beach or in the National Park, for example.

Dalby Forest Pexton Moor Farm
has the following facilities on or around the site.
A lovely quiet site perfectly placed at the entrance to Dalby Forest, which is great if you love walking and Mountain biking, and perfect for exploring the Moors and visiting York. Gorgeous views across the fields to the hills beyond. The owners were very friendly and provide lot of info on local attractions. The site is flat and well kept with lovely large marked pitches. The facilities are good with 2 showers - one of which is suitable for disabled people. We will definitely be returning and recommending it to friends.

An excellent location for walking and cycling breaks, being right at the entrance to Dalby Forest and a short drive to Pickering. The steam trains will take you over the North York Moors from Pickering, or drive yourself to many of the beautiful scenic locations on the moors. Scarborough and Filey are nor far. Local shops a mile or two away in Thornton le Dale, which is itself an interesting village with many amenities.
The site is tidy and basic with a great panoramic view to the West. The camping field has a slight slope, but is flat and grassed. There are no special facilities for children, but the forest is right on the doorstep!
While a certified CCC site, no mention was made when booking or signing in of club membership, and there could potentially be more than 5 units plus quite a few tents. We paid Â£14 per night for the 2 of us in our camper van with electric. Showers and washing up point provided all inclusive.
We enjoyed 6 nights with varied weather, and would return to do some of the things we never got around to doing.
