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. For those seeking connectivity, a small coffee lounge with free WiFi access is provided, ensuring that guests can stay connected while surrounded by natural beauty.

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.

Beautiful location and very quiet site. The fully serviced pitches are extremely handy. Good warm shower toilet facilities, only downside is nowhere to put you shower gel/soap and having to keep pressing those pesky buttons to keep your shower going.Staff very friendly and helpful. If you want a break away from it all , this is the site for you

An ideal getaway

Race, Paul - 06/04/2024

For me Hillside is my go to campsite to get away and just relax. The site is a half hour drive down the A19, hanger right at Knayton, a lovely little village with a fantastic pub; the Dog and Gun. If you want a meal here it would be advisable to book in advance. Probably the only downside to this site is the mile or so single track road to get to it. Plenty of passing places a bit rough in places so just take your time. The entrance to the site sets the tone, well maintained, clean and tidy. The staff are really friendly and helpful. All pitches are fully serviced which takes away the tedious trip to top up water and empty waste butts. The site is nice and quiet, plenty of places to walk dogs and a large field with play area for children. The facility building is very clean and well maintained. If you are looking for a nice quiet getaway this is the place. Yorkshire moors on your doorstep, Whitby, York relatively close by with other attractions in the vicinity.

A great stay at Hillside over the Easter weekend. The fully serviced super size pitches offer great space and are all located on the quieter area of the site. Will definitely be returning again. The onsite staff are super friendly. Check in was super quick and we were on the pitch in a matter of minutes.
