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 campsite is set at the end of a small village.

This review is for Slingsby

The campsite is set at the end of a small village. The village has a local pub with good inexpensive meals but reserving your meal is essential as it does get full most evenings. There is good walking through the local farmland around the area and a good local walking book is available at a modest cost. There is an hourly local bus service from the top end of the village, which is about 400 metres from the campsite which will take you to Malton and Helmsley Mon. to Sat. No bus service on Sunday. The village is in an area of outstanding natural beauty which is part of the Castle Howard Estate. Castle Howard is easily assessable by car or the local bus service from Malton. It is also possible to get to the East Coast resorts of Scarborough, Whitby and Bridlington by car or by using the Express Coastliner bus service that comes into Malton bus station from where you can also catch the bus to York. You will need to get a Coastliner timetable to plan your days out. The English Concessionary travel card funded by the Government is accepted on all local and Coastliner bus services from 9.00am. The whole area is very rural and well worth spending some time quite, peaceful time to relax and unwind.
