Burton Constable Holiday Park and Arboretum is a stunning, five-star holiday retreat in the heart of East Yorkshire. The park is open from March 1st to November 30th and welcomes guests with motorhomes, touring caravans and tents. Holiday lodges, static caravans and camping pods are also available for hire.
All pitches for touring guests have electric hook-ups, while the facilities on offer at the park include toilet and shower blocks, a laundry and chemical waste disposal. Gas exchange is also available at the site. A dog walking area is available for pets to stretch their legs, while a children’s play area and plenty of open space mean kids always have somewhere to run around.
Guests never have to venture far from the beautiful site should they not wish to do so. There is an on-site shop well stocked with holiday essentials, groceries and more, while the site's bar is a great place to kick back and relax during the evening, with live entertainment provided on selected nights during the season. Food to take away or eat in is also available, with picnic tables outside for anyone looking to dine al fresco when the weather allows.
There is plenty to do and see on-site, with miles of woodland walks available. These wind through the woods and around the lakes in the park, and offer a chance to get close to wildlife, with squirrels and rabbits regularly spotted. Many guests choose to stay at Burton Constable during the early spring months, when the foliage is in full bloom and provides a majestic sight. The arboretum is still in its infancy but is nonetheless amazing to walk around, and is a great place for enjoying a relaxing stroll or a family picnic. The Walled Garden found at the park is also ideal for anyone looking for a tranquil spot, with roses, wild flowers and much more growing there.
Several lakes are at the park with most of them open for fishing. A restocking programme runs throughout the season to ensure anglers can make the most of their time fishing, and permits are available from the park reception. The lower lake at the site is available for boating.
This campsite in Yorkhsire is well situated for guests looking to explore the east coast of England, with the seaside villages of Withernsea and Hornsea close by, the larger towns of Bridlington and Scarborough a scenic drive further to the north. Guests often enjoy exploring the Yorkshire countryside, be that on foot, bicycle or in the car, and discovering the villages and market towns found throughout the region.
Lovers of the bigger cities can head into Hull or take a cross country drive to historic York, where a vast range of attractions await tourists. Guests also have the option of crossing the Humber to explore the north of Lincolnshire, with seaside towns such as Grimsby close by and several smaller welcoming villages to be discovered.
Burton Constable Holiday Park and Arboretum is a great place for family camping and caravan holidays, and an ideal base for discovering Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and the east coast of England.

A brilliant place to camp, the shower/toilet block immaculately clean.
Very spacious site and kept lovely & tidy.
The bar is great, a massive shame it dosent sell food (it would be a profitable move i think).
The on-site shop has a whole variety of produce to sell should you run short of anything. The staff extremely helpful.
WE will definately be going back for another weekend break.

Next to a lake. This extensive site in lovely grounds has something for everyone. well maintained, excellent security and regularly cleaned toilet and shower facilities. Close to the developing city of Hull and East Coast seaside resorts.
Good local villages with fine local food and fine ales.
Plenty of activities, fishing on site, guided walks
A really attractive site with lakes, meadows and woodland areas. Wide areas of open parkland set in the grounds of Burton Constable Hall, which is a short walk away.
In a lovely part of the UK - the Yorkshire Dales, with nearby the quaint village of Grassington, and the famous geological features of Malham Tarn and Malham Cove.

The Yorkshire Tourist Board’s ‘Caravan Park of the Year (2005)’ makes the most of its memorable setting within 200 acres of parkland landscaped by Capability Brown for Burton Constable Hall. Possibly the grandest driveway up to a caravan park you ever saw promises something special – and it doesn’t disappoint.
The touring field has acres of magnificently landscaped space crowned by an expertly sited bridge, and there’s a lake which can be used for boating and fishing. Ducks and geese wander freely around the park.
The main facilities block is warm and spotless. There are also smaller, unisex facilities.
By the lake, there is a small pub on site, with television, books and games available.
The large, shared hardstanding pitching area especially for motorhomes makes for an particularly attractive location which backs directly onto the bridge and
The Hall and its wonderful gardens are on hand to enjoy, and the licences required for carp and bream fishing in the lake are good value and can be bought at the reception area.
This might all sound too posh for words but in fact it’s just deeply relaxing and a beautiful place in which to spend time.21 Sep 2006
Practical Motorhome Independent Site Reviews.
This caravan park is on the busy A684, three miles east of Leyburn. It is well signposted from the road, but there is potential confusion because the Constable Burton Gardens are very close by, and both are owned by the same person.
The entrance to the site is wide, with ample parking inside the gate for arriving units while ‘booking in’ formalities are carried out. All pitches are allocated, and you are shown to them by the friendly wardens.
The site is surrounded by a stone estate wall, which limits views of the scenery but also helps to reduce the sound of traffic from the busy road outside. The noise could be annoying to some, especially if your pitch is near to the boundary - those further back are unlikely to be affected.
The site was formerly a deer park and is laid out on grass, with some mature trees.
There is an interesting six-sided stone building, known as the Deer Barn, which houses the well-equipped laundry and dishwashing areas.
Facilities are being upgraded, with the construction of a disabled washroom and a family bathroom, but an opportunity to carry out much-needed refurbishment to the rest of the toilet facilities has been missed.
There is no shop on site, but milk and newspapers can be ordered. For essentials and luxuries alike, the busy market town of Leyburn is only three miles away. A regular bus service to Leyburn, which has limited parking, stops at the gates, so there is no need to use your own car.
Across the road is the Wyvill Arms - a pub and restaurant. It’s not cheap, but it’s not to be missed. The menu is imaginative and the food excellent. 22 Mar 2005
