Why stay here

Nestled between two National Parks – the Yorkshire Dales and North Yorkshire Moors - our campsite is nothing short of rural bliss.

Our site is within sight of the main stand and with the famous turf before you, and only five minutes’ walk to the cobbled market town of Thirsk, the birthplace of Thomas Lord, after whom the Lord’s cricket ground was named.

To book a tent pitch please call the site directly on 01845 525266.
