Ideal location, visited Malham Cove, Whitby, York, Leeds, Fountains Abbey, Hartlepool and both sites of the National Railway Museum all within reach.

Caravan park was just perfect for me and good access, no narrow lanes. Cafe on site, but didn't use as was always out before it opened. Thirsk close by for your supermarket shopping or eating out.

Helmesley is lovely, and the walk to Reivaulx Abbey ruins along the Cleveland way is well worth the short climb in the middle of an otherwise straightforward walk. The Abbey is stunning, and the views of the castle are great on the return walk.
The North York Moors railway is wonderful, and the villages of Masham and Middlham make great stops on the way to Leyburn on the edge of the dales. Of the two brewery visitor centres in Masham, make time for the Theakston's as it is kept a traditional pub feel, whereas the Black Sheep was more commercial.
The park, accommodation and service were all first class making this a wonderful holiday destination.

Delighted with the quality of the accommodation. We stayed in a modern 2 bed caravan which was immaculate on arrival.
It was a lovely quiet site. It was a shame we went out of season so the coffee shop wasn't open as much. It would be lovely to have the option of a hot tub on some of the lodges? Maybe a small shop where you could buy essentials as the nearest shop was quite a way out. Didn't realise that check in was until 5pm as email seemed to say after 7pm you needed to arrange it before hand.
Immaculately kept park, all facilities well maintained, staff welcoming, caravan spotless and had everything you could possibly need.
Park was lovely and clean, accomodation was also spotless, staff were very helpful. Would definitely recommend this place
Excellent site for exploring the area. Clean tidy site with modern statics - well equipped and comfortable. Friendly, helpful management and staff. Good tearoom onsite and a great animal park/farm a short walk away.
Excellent lodge within a gated community.
First class site with friendly staff and excellent cafe
We had a fantastic stay at York House Country Park. Staff were so friendly and could not do enough for you. Accommodation was lovely and clean (We stayed in a standard caravan) and was a great base for our travels around York. Will definitely be back!
When of the best holidays I've had. Nice quiet site, helpful and friendly staff everything very clean. Not a place to go if you want a pool, gym and amusements on site. But if you don't want these it's perfect.
This is a brilliant site, very well maintained and lovely surroundings. The caravan was very clean and well maintained. The staff on the site were very friendly and helpful, I can't wait to go back.
We had a great break with peace and quiet.Perfect getaway for relaxation.
