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, 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.

Excellent site, brilliant location, very good facilities
This site is in a rural location, tucked away in a peaceful spot but only a couple of minutes walk into the lovely village of Thornton-le-Dale. The main road runs through the village with an excellent public transport service to Pickering, Scarborough, Whitby & York. The village is in a good location for walking & there is lots of information about the local area on site. There are 2 good pubs & several tea rooms/cafes, along with a bakers sellng quality bread & cakes & various other shops including a post office.
Kirstie & Neil, the owners make you feel very welcome & ensure the site & facilities are kept to a very high standard. The toilets & shower blocks are modern with large shower cubicles.
We will definitely return to this site.

This is a five van site with a camping field adjacent to it. There is electric hook up on both fields and the toilet facilities are available for both campers and caravanners. The site was busy whilst we were there but the toilet facilities were always clean and available.
Manouvering on the caravan site is very tight and would suggest that it is not really suitable for twin axle caravans. A motor mover would be a benefit but on my visit there were plenty of willing volunteers prepared to lend a hand.
The camping field is spacious with room for about twelve large tents or motor homes.
The site owners were very friendly and accommodating. They live on site so were ready available if you had any questions.
The site is in the middle of Thornton le Dale where there are some lovely tea rooms and pubs all selling food. There is also a fish and chip shop in the village.
The site is handy for Dalby Forest, Pickering and the North Yorkshire Moors. There is well stocked information room on the site with lots of information about what there is to see and do in the area. You could stay on the site and cycle or walk into Dalby Forest.
This was a good site and I would recommend it to other club members.
