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.

The site was well run and the site Manager was very helpful and friendly and always on the go.

This review is for Slingsby

The site was well run and the site Manager was very helpful and friendly and always on the go. Slingsby campsite is in an AONB in the Castle Howard Estate. The village is in a rural setting and is very quiet in the evening and at night. There is very little for teenagers or children but there is a friendly village pub which does excellent meals and a Sunday roast. It also serves a selection of good local beers, The local village bus service is very limited to one bus every two hours and this service finishes at 6.00pm in the evening. The nearest town is Malton which is regarded as the food capital of Yorkshire and has a vibrant food market and a monthly Farmers Market. Malton also has a good fast bus service [Coastliner] which travels to Leeds, York, Scarborough, Whitby, Filey and Bridlington. There is also a local service which covers Castle Howard and Malton and Norton town circular. If you are interested in walking the surrounding area has many good walks taking in the area around the site and onto Hovingham village which is approx two miles from Slingsby through the fields. This is a superb area with lots of local interest and beautiful local villages all within walking distance. You can take in a site seeing tour of York and visit the majestic York Minster. There is also the North Yorks Moors steam engine service from Pickering to Whitby and return. You should also take the opportunity to visit Ampleforth Abbey and have a guided tour with one of the Monks. All in all a great area to visit.

This review is for Slingsby

My husband always comments that there are always too many wash cubicles (rarely used) and not enough toilet cubicles. I think that the door adjoining the three showers is a mistake. I like to shower before bed and it is very cold, without a blast of outdoor air at the opening of the door. Having said that, the block was always clean and tidy. Castle Howard is well worth a visit, as the grounds are extensive. We also enjoyed a trip to Kilburn to see and walk, The White Horse, and visit the Robert Thompson (The Mouseman furniture maker), visiting the Museum, workshop and showroom. Rievaulx Abbey (EH) and Rievaulx Terrace and Temples (NT) were fascinating. Slingsby village has a shop for bread, milk and papers, just a few minutes walk away - a lovely village. On arrival we did a "getting our bearings" walk around the area and visited the delightful church. A local walk's book was purchased there and we immediately set off to do one. The disused railway line makes easy walking from the site and very soon you can be in the Howardian Hills where the views are good.

A delightful site on the edge of the village which has a great dog friendly pub.

This review is for Slingsby

A delightful site on the edge of the village which has a great dog friendly pub. The Grapes has great food but retains the true pub atmosphere with an excellent covered rear area with wood burner as well as a garden. Very close to Castle Howard, even if you don't wish to enter the house and gardens there is a great deli type shop and garden centre and cafe. The Arboretum is worth a visit too. But you'll never be short of things to do from this site. Easy drive to the coast over the spectacular North York Moors as well as towns like Helmsley and Malton and Pickering nearby. Several super walks right outside the site gates and the wardens only too glad to tell them about them. Hope this review helps you make a decision to try a visit.
