Excellent site

Finnie, Roy - 10/06/2024

This is an excellent site and we will definitely return. We were on one of the Super large pitches with 16amp electric supply and serviced water/ waste. Plenty room for caravan and awning without needing to step on the grass which was quite wet at the start of the holiday. If you have dog(s) this is the place to be, the owners have cut 3-4m round the outsides of fields so you can exercise dogs although unfortunately it was rather wet when we were there. Not far from Thirsk or Northallerton for shopping and the Carpenters Arms 4 miles away is worth a visit.

We have been visiting Hillside for the past few years now and the standard remains high each time we visit. The facilities are always spotless, the outside areas are well kept and the staff are always friendly and accommodating when you book and throughout your stay with them. I would highly recommend this site and will continue to come back again and again :)

Didn't want to come home!

Beilby, Judith - 02/06/2024

Location spot on. Lots of walks directly from site. THE BEST pub within walking distance with THE BEST food. Staff on site very friendly and helpful, thankyou Megan. The extra large fully serviced pitch itself is bigger than my back garden and the spacing between the caravans was like having another caravan pitch between you and the next one, amazing. The morning and evening wildlife song is just beautiful. I would have given 5 stars if it wasn't that the showers really let the site down. You have to touch the back wall for the water to actually start to rinse your hair, no power at all and they were on a sensor which wasn't very reactive!. The showers and toilets were absolutely spotless though and there were further shower amenities by reception which you could also use which worked far better. This will not stop me from returning.

A Well maintained caravan park with great views. The amenities were clean and modern.

Mortimer, Kevin & Alison - 02/06/2024

On reflection of my first visit and on the outcome of this stay we would decide whether to store our caravan here for the season ahead.On arrival the park is well presented and maintained, the amenities were modern, clean but limited in quantity, the site is equally busy and from the other caravan owners we met were generally very nice people. We found the site was genuinely quiet from the caravan contingency, however the pod dwellers were more louder during our stay.The staff were pleasant and helpful, however the older lady on reception advised that when the caravan was in storage, it could only be removed from site once or twice at a push during the storage term and any subsequent use must be on their pitches. This advise was not conveyed from all staff members or included in the T&Cs.Without wanting any hassle I have decided not to store here as a result but may stop again if the time arises, it is a really nice place .

Beautiful location, very peaceful & picturesque

Bonney, Maureen - 31/05/2024

Beautiful location, very peaceful & picturesque. Our pitch was large and my only slight criticism is that the super pitches are a bit of a walk to the nearest shower / toilet block and showers were quite compact. I used the wet room near reception which was better. It would not however, put me off staying here again.

Peaceful, well maintained site

Dobson, Catherine - 31/05/2024

We enjoyed our weekend here in our campervan. The staff are welcoming, the site is looked after very well and the shower blocks are nice and warm. There is even a dog wash which came in handy as it rained and our dog enjoys muddy walks. The coffee lounge is also a good feature, as it’s nice to leave your camping chair and sit on a sofa sometimes. The peaceful location is good too. I would recommend staying here.

Peaceful spacious site

McGill, Ron - 26/05/2024

This is a very quiet, peaceful site. We booked a super pitch which we’re vet spacious - the standard pitches were a bit close together but still better than some sites. However it was some distance from the small toilet block which might be a problem for some. The toilet block was warm and kept very clean. The showers were small, and there was no where to place shower gel etc, and not enough hooks to hang clothes and towels. Also no way of directing the shower head (we prefer detachable shower heads).The access road is narrow, but with enough passing places, but the road surface is poor!Staff were friendly courteous and helpful.Plenty of pleasant walking in the area.
