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. 

Worth Noting

Mobile phone reception poor. Site has especially hard ground so steel pegs are required.

WiFi

100% coverage cannot be guaranteed due to rural location, weather conditions and changing flora. These can cause variable signal strength. Hotspots are available. Prices.

Eat Local

This review is for Slingsby

Sorry to say that this will be our last visit until we read in the magazine that money has been spent on this site. The site is clean but the toilet block is in dire need of an upgrade. Old floor and wall grout is impossible to clean no matter how much work the site team put into it. A 10 amp supply is outdated. Great location and lovely village with a friendly shop and nice pub.

This is a fairly quiet site with no road noise.

This review is for Slingsby

This is a fairly quiet site with no road noise. Airplane noise nearly all day, not excessively loud but did become iritating, Shower block needed some maintenance; some mould, soap dispenser broken and, a matter for concern, the lights in each shower cubicle had their plastic covers hanging off so if putting you arm up to put clothes on you could quite easily be electrocuted. Pitches were small with little space to park your car so therefore you were left with little if any space to sit outside your unit. We did have a good time exploring the local attractions; Scarborough (wouldn't go again), York (would highly recommend) and Castle Howard (would also recommend).

We had a choice of pitches which was nice, our electric tripped as soon as we put the kettle on, it tripped at least twice every morning, we do not have an awning the adjoining pitch parked their car on the grass outside our caravan door, we parked our car behind the caravan only space available, we had nowhere to sit outside our caravan, ruined the break for us, wouldn't come to the site again

This review is for Slingsby

Tried to talk ask on the telephone about pitching a lightweight tent on the site but was told that 'This is the Camping and Caravan Club and we don't 'squeeze' anyone in'. When I pointed out that several sites had been helpful to me and my son when lightweight camping, I was told that they (Beadnell, Dunbar and Keswick) must be 'CL' sites! (They aren't!) Not a friendly welcome at all. So we didn't bother going and booked a non C&CC site instead. I'm starting to worry this this club is being run by condescending pensioners for people with expensive caravans.
