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.

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.

Perfect quiet break

Preston, Charlotte - 13/05/2024

5

We were opposite the pond. So peaceful and quiet, just what we needed. The shower block was spotless. The pitch was level and extremely spacious. The pitch was fully serviced and the elsan point and the bins were close enough and well maintained. Steady stroll to the Dog & Gun for a drink, the food looked amazing though. Took about 35 mins to walk steady and admire the surroundings .Not far to drive into Thirsk which is a pretty market town with all your amenities. Also called at the local garden centre that had a nice coffee shop We've booked again for later in the year

We stay here regularly as a couple or with our grandchildren. We choose our visits weekend with the kids or midweek on our own. We have found that this suits us . It’s a beautiful site, clean and well organised with additional services like caravan cleaning. The friendly team are consistent in their approach and ensure that everyone’s needs are met- there’s even a doggy bathroom!

Lovely Campsite

Robinson, Mark - 10/05/2024

This is our 3rd stay at Hillside Caravan Park overall the campsite is beautiful as in surroundings. It’s clean and well maintained as in grass areas, toilet facilities and shower block. If your a dog owner there are lovely walks within the campsite to do with them and with the added bonus of the dog wash hut, which on our recent visit was a god send with two sets of muddy paws 🐾.It’s a quiet site so if your after night entertainment such as a resturant with meal options or bar then possibly not for you. There is a children’s play area on one field by the main entrance which caters for the younger visitors and a small selection of groceries can be brought from reception. Reception itself is very welcoming and staff are always friendly and helpful.The campsite is secured by fob entrance in and out which is an added benefit. It’s close by to many places to visit such as Thirsk, & Whitby should you wish to explore.So overall a beautiful, friendly site.
