We visit this area a lot and have stayed in many cottages and caravans over the years, we wanted a few days away to just chill out and relax and we found this little gem! We received a very warm and friendly welcome from Kath on our arrival who showed us around the caravan and we had a nice little chat. The caravan it's self was beautifully clean and is extremely well equipped with everything you could possibly need. The setting of the van is superb, overlooking open countryside looking towards Pickering and Thornton Dale with the most stunning sunrises and sunsets we have ever seen. We had lots of wildlife visiting the little garden and enjoyed watching the horses in the paddock just beyond. We even had a lovely surprise when we opened the fridge to find milk, chocolate biscuits and beautiful home made cakes left there for us all of which were most welcome and the cakes were delicious - thanks Kath . We could only stay a few days but I am sure we will be booking again before too long.

Beautiful outlook, private and very comfortable. I am over from New Zealand and would have no hesitation in highly recommending this holiday accommodation So close to the coast, countryside, history in abundance and retail therapy! I would have liked to stay longer.

We We’re welcomed by Kath and also given some lovely buns. Kath had milk in the fridge ready amongst many bits and bobs which was very well thought of. It was very comfortable and cosy. We will definitely go back. We would recommend staying at this working farm as we loved it, Kath gave us the chance to view her farm but unfortunately the weather for us was too wet and cold (we wouldn’t make real farmers like them lol) 10/10 FANTASTIC SERVICE

Nice to have met you all, sorry i coudn,t do any thing about the weather.you will have to come a bit earlier next time. When the weather is warmer and the nights are lighter,Hope to see you all again many thanks kath.

My partner & was greeted by Kath who owns the caravan with a lovely hot apple crumble & cream for us. The caravan is a fantastic size, spotless, comfortable & very homely. The views from the caravan are beautiful with horses passing by which you can go out & feed. Cows & goats are a stone's throw from your door & the farm received some calves whilst we were there & Kath kindly let us see them. This place is wonderful & I found Kath incredibly warm & genuine. Thank you for an amazing stay & we did defiantly be back.

Hi Lisa nice to hear from you pleased you will be coming back to see us again. see you soon ,best wishes to you both for Christmas and new year. Kath and Mike T.

WOW what an amazing stay we had here. Made to feel very welcome the minute we arrived till the time we left by Kath and Mike. This caravan is so well equipped with everything you need, it was immaculately clean on arrival filled with lots of extra's you never normally get in a caravan like tea, coffee, sugar a packet of biscuits and lovely homemade cakes in the fridge, books on the shelves games for the kids in the drawers, it was like home except the view from the caravan window overlooking the north Yorkshire moors is stunning. The caravans location is perfect for exploring, 5 mins to Pickering for the NYMR steam railway that takes you to Whitby. less than 5 mins drive to Flamingoland and about a 20 minute drive to the park and ride for York, Scarborough is not too far either, we were only here for 4 days but wished we had stayed longer, we will be back next year for sure and we will be back here to stay. To sum it up fantastic hosts, fantastic caravan and a fantastic location. thank you both so much. best wishes scott, sharon, max and stanley.

Hi Scott and family nice to hear from you, We look forward to seeing you Sharon max and Stanley next year, and maybe get to play with the boys on the garden. Football score not good going down hill already very pleased you all had a great time. Big thankyou for card and present ,see you soon kath and mike.

A lovely last minute holiday for me my partner child age 15, child age 10 and niece age 3. Beautiful view of the horses every morning and the rolling hills very relaxing and much nicer than staying in a large park. Kath was a lovely host making us chocolate cakes which my son was so happy about! Also the little touches like the milk and biscuits was lovely too.. Caravan was lovely clean and fresh would highly recommend brilliant value for money x will definitely book up again x

Hi Sam and family it was lovely meeting you all ,We were pleased you had a lovely time , Hope to see you again ,thankyou for a good review , and our best wishes to you and John for October . kind regards Kath.

Beautiful Caravan. Stunning both inside and out with a fine views across the Vale of Pickering towards Pickering and Thornton Le Dale. The caravan is beautifully clean and spacious. The Master Bedroom is full width of the caravan with a surprising amount of room around the bed and plenty of wardrobe space and an en-suite shower room. The beds in the second bedroom are perfectly adequate for adults. I am an average height adult myself and the bed was perfectly long-enough. The kitchen is well-equipped with all utensils for a self-catering holiday and the lounge has a sturdy three-piece suite to look at that stunning view over the North Yorkshire countryside. There is ample parking for two cars adjacent to the caravan and the owner Kath, is very friendly and obliging to make sure that you have everything you need to have the perfect stay. Kath made us some home made buns for our arrival, along with two packets of biscuits and milk in the fridge, all very welcome. We will certainly be staying again, what a gem of a find. If you stay here, you will not be disappointed.

Hi Paul thankyou for your lovely review, I am pleased you both enjoyed your stay. And that you both will be coming to stay again see you next time many thanks Kath.

Perfect if you're looking for a quiet base surrounded by places to explore. Don't be put off by the lack of reviews, this is due to the fact that we were the first guests to stay at the caravan and I would 100% recommend staying here. We were made to fell so welcome by the whole family, Kath looked after us all really well and was so lovely and friendly. Nothing was any trouble to her at all. Even though the caravan is on a working farm it was surprisingly peaceful. My kids loved the fact that there were farm animals nearby and even helped out feeding the goats. The caravan was spotlessly clean and very well equipped with absolutely everything we needed for a perfect base for our holiday. There were lovely relaxing views across the fields from the lounge window and patio area and my kids loved wildlife spotting. We were also welcome to use Kath's large garden as safe place for my kids to play which was great. During our stay we visited Flamingoland (5 mins away), Whitby (35 mins away), Scarborough (40 mins away) and the ice cream at Balderson's in Thornton le Dale is a must! Thank you so much to Kath and her family for some lovely holiday memories. We wish you all the very best with your new venture and we're already looking forward to seeing you all again on our next visit !

H,i Lorraine and family it was a pleasure meeting you. I am pleased you enjoyed your stay. And that you had great weather for it , also that you loved the Ice cream. Tell Ewan and Evie that Ossie is missing them .Thank you for a lovely review and I will see you all on your next visit. kind regards Kath.T.
