A basic CL that is simply perfect if you want peace and quiet, lovely views and great hosts. The site is mown, with cuttings removed, there is electric hook up, very clean / modern waste disposal and an outside WC. Owners are great but not intrusive but equally very happy to help or give suggestions. Site is not totally level (it’s not bad at all - we have an estate car and had no issues) so blocks handy; it drains very quickly. Fantastic dog friendly walks in abundance from the site and surrounding area, which is not always the case in Yorkshire; with two large dogs this can make it break it for us. Helmsley a great little town to have as a base and we enjoyed a number of meals out (local taxi firm charges £10.00 each way). All in all a great site, smashing owners and lots and lots to do in the area. Thoroughly recommended.
What a lovely CL - Great location and stunning views
Jess, What a lovely CL you have. Access is very easy and the directions on the web took us straight there. Easy to find and only a couple of miles from the stunning market town of Helmsley. Located at the base of the NY Moors National Park we came for hill walking. The site is located right next to a national walk and a number of bridleways. SIte: 1/2 Acre paddock with 16 Amp EHU to each pitch Recycling and normal refuse in easy to access wheelie bins Chem loo point very modern and clean with a hose and water. Water point at bottom of paddock. Slightly sloping down, but makes site drain well and stunning views of the valley ahead. Only noise was birds and the lambs. Outside toilet (Next to house) that caravaners may use. Very good 4G signal (O2). Excellent TV signal (Freeview 200 channels). Price is amazing value! £11 for EHU, and also use of a toilet seems to cheap! Jess - You need to put your prices up ;) Looking forward to returning in the near future.
Great quiet campsite
We have just returned from 5 nights stay at Carlton Grange campsite. We took our two dogs and this campsite offered great walks from the site through forests and onto the wonderful open moor. Beautiful scenery overlooking the hilly moors a short distance away, the forests having lots of different wildlife to see if you are lucky. We visited Helmsley a busy market town, lots of individual shops to look around, fish and chips and market on Fridays. Thirsk a short distance away another great town and lots of little picturesque villages. The best part for me though was being able to bicycle with my dogs through the quiet country lanes onto the moors, just mind-blowing even in the wind and rain, much to the annoyance of one of my dogs :) The site itself was quiet, flat and shaded with trees. We will DEFINITELY be returning.
Beautiful Countryside and peaceful
First visit to this lovely site and won’t be the last! Jess made us very welcome on arrival. Plenty of space for outfit. We didn’t really use the facilities apart from the waste and water, but there is the use of a toilet too. We had 3 dogs with us who loved the huge field next to us. The weather was rather inclement when we stayed so no sitting outside. But even sitting in the caravan we had lovely views. £11 per night was excellent value for money. We visited Helmsley town centre (5 min drive) and would recommend a visit to Hunters of Helmsley delicatessen. Thirsk is only a 30 min drive and has a lovely Market on a Monday. Give this place a go, you’ll not be disappointed!
just returned from 10 night vist
just as it always was before new owners took over, just the sheep missing,, loved our stay ,quiet, peaceful, lovely views and walks as before, new owners just as friendly as Ann and Edwin were.who are enjoying there retirement, will return again soon .
We loved this site, the view down towards helmsley is fantastic. a great base for walking. we didn’t use the facilities apart from to empty our waste. The farmer was friendly and helpful. he did tell us that he waist his late 70’s and giving up the farm over the winter and retiring to a bungalow in helmsley. I wish them all the best in their retirement and thank you for a fab weekend
Made very welcome. Peaceful and secluded. Nice and clean. Would recommend this site to anyone who wants to be in the middle of the countryside.
worth a visit or two
We first used this site in the late 1980's and were regular caravanner's. returning again to caravan ownership after a 15 year break it was a pleasure to return to the site, nothing much has changed. Still well placed for walks and surrounding areas (Helmsley, Harome etc) Recommend a visit
Away from it all
This CL is situated about 3 mls above Helmsley along a quiet lane and a further 1/2m up a farm drive, hence it's peace and quietness. The all grass site lies adjacent to the farm, is protected on 2 sides from the prevailing winds by stands of Scots Pines and has extensive views over to the Howardian Hills to the south. There are walks and cycle rides directly from the site, and many places of interest to visit close by, e.g. Rievaulx Abbey and Terrace, Helmsley Castle, Duncombe Park and Nunnington Hall. There is a small Co-op and a petrol station in Helmsley for essential supplies. Both Ann & Edwin, the owners, are very friendly and helpful. We have used this site a number of times in the past and will certainly return.
This was the first cl that we has stayed at. The access to the site would be be an issue if another vehicle was using the road at the same time but we found it very easy. The field is good although not flat, but not really an issue - plenty of walks straight from the site. Really loved this site and would recommend a visit to all.
