Masons Campsite

Rating: 4.3/5

Ideal for the family, this parent wrote: “Amazing weekend at Masons Campsite! Facilities were really clean. Loads of washing facilties. Location is incredible, close to the river, lots of space for kids to play, lovely pub only minutes walk away. We were in a tent and friends in a caravan pitched side by side. Fire pits to hire,  shop on site, coffee shop, milkshakes were a massive hit with the kids.  Cant wait to go back!!”

Stoneclose Campsite

Location: High Rigg Farm, Pickering, YO18 7LP

Rating: 4.8/5

A regular visitor left this review: “Fantastic campsite. Very clean & tidy. Have camped here & used their pods too. Good facilities - washing up station, showers & toilets. Fridge/freezer in the farmhouse porch is really useful too. Caravans at the top & tents round the edge leaves a nice area for children to play in the middle on well-kept grass. Always pleasant, great location - well worth a stopover for Dalby forest activities or just a relaxing break.”
