A distinguished 9-acre haven located just outside the picturesque village of Knayton in North Yorkshire, Hillside Caravan Park stands out as an award-winning family-run retreat. This idyllic park seamlessly blends luxury facilities with breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside, creating a serene and peaceful atmosphere for visitors.

Nestled in the heart of Herriot country, Hillside serves as an ideal launching point for exploring the North York Moor National Park, the East Yorkshire coast, historic market towns, and the culturally rich city of York.

The park accommodates touring caravans and motorhomes, offers a unique 'glamping' experience in luxurious camping pods, and features a cosy holiday cottage, ensuring a diverse range of choices for guests. Welcoming both children and dogs, Hillside Caravan Park strives to provide a warm and family-friendly environment.

The park boasts top-notch facilities for touring caravans and motorhomes, with the capacity to cater to up to 50 units. The small, family-run park is enveloped by the stunning Hambleton hills, creating an atmosphere where guests can truly relax and relish their holiday in comfort and tranquillity.

Among the onsite facilities at Hillside, a heated amenity block provides convenience and comfort to guests. Additionally, a spacious recreational area is available and forms an ideal space for children to engage in games and outdoor play.

One of the highlights of Hillside Caravan Park is the Deluxe Mega Pods, offering a complete glamping experience. These locally-built pods feature contemporary country decor, providing a comfortable and stylish space for guests to relax and unwind. The Mega Pods aim to offer a warm, cosy, and comfortable glamping experience, allowing guests to feel close to nature while still enjoying the comforts of home.

The park's commitment to quality extends to its dog-friendly approach, with ample opportunities for nature walks surrounded by outstanding natural beauty. With established walking routes, guests and their furry companions can explore the scenic landscape and capture the essence of the local wildlife.

For those seeking self-catering accommodations, Hillside Caravan Park presents The Granary Cottage. This high-quality lodging, converted from a traditional stone barn, accommodates up to four people. Retaining some of the original beams, the cottage combines a contemporary ambiance with a touch of tradition, offering a unique and comfortable retreat.

We have just visited Hillside Farm for the second time and we received a very warm welcome on both occasions. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. We booked an all service pitch which was extremely spacious- There’s lots of room for families to run around and the views are just fabulous.The toilet and shower facilities are spotlessly clean and the whole site is very well kept. Overall this is an excellent site which is very peaceful yet in a good location not far from the A19We will definitely be booking again!

This is such a great caravan site, the staff our very friendly, the facilities are great, it seems the majority of the piches are extra large super pitches with so much space, without a doubt the biggest pitches we have been on. Everything is well maintained and pristine. One of our favourites!!

Decent site.

Ashton, Michael - 15/02/2024

A good site at a fair price.We had a super pitch that had water, drainage and an aerial point. Nice and big for awnings etc but sadly not level, it sloped off quite badly, for the price and pitch facilities I’d have expected it to be level.The site is very clean and tidy and the facilities are in very good condition, smart and regularly cleaned.Very friendly staff and helpful.Free wifi only available at reception and coffee lounge, but you can pay to have it where your pitch is. I think for the price of the super pitch, this should be included.Overall a nice and pleasant site as tones throw away from Thirsk.

Good facilities and really friendly team

McMahon, Tracey - 09/02/2024

The site has good facilities and plenty of space for dog walks. Our dog is still getting used to travelling and was a bit unsettled the first night - the team were able to move us to a more secluded pitch for the second night to ensure we did not disturb other guests. Really friendly and helpful team. Quiet location and great base to access the Yorkshire sights

Weekend getaway

Young, Mark - 08/02/2024

5

Beautiful well kept site and the hard standing super pitch was well spacious and looked after. Friendly welcome on arrival by the reception staff and also the staff offered to even park my caravan for us on our pitch. The facilities were spotless very clean. Probably say they might need more showers when the sites at full capacity there are only two showers in the amenities block. The site is surrounded by stunning views and the local pubs are a few miles away by car. Thirsk is a short drive away and is well worth visiting. Overall great value for money would definitely stay again.
