Street Head Caravan Park is a family-run campsite in North Yorkshire. Situated in Newbiggin, Bishopdale, the campsite is right next to The Street Head Inn, so you won't have to walk far for a well-deserved pint or a meal once you've pitched up! Half a mile down the road in Thornalby is a handy village store selling local produce, newspapers, wines and more essentials.
Views from the campsite are of the beautiful hilly countryside of drystone walls, farmland and wild fells. North Yorkshire is a top walking destination and there are many footpaths around Street Head Caravan Park. Follow the signposted paths over the hills and dales, stopping off at the pubs en-route for a healthy and relaxing walking holiday in the Yorkshire Dales.
Facilities on the campsite itself include showers, hand basins, toilets, and a separate block with sinks for washing-up and hand washing clothes. The laundry area has a large coin-operated washing machine, a tumble dryer and an iron and ironing board.
Touring caravans, camper vans, motorhomes, backpacking tents and family tents are all welcome and prices are very reasonable. 10Amp electric hook-ups are available as needed.
It makes sense to look for seasonal pitches if you're planning to take lots of camping holidays in the Yorkshire Dales. Seasonal touring pitches are available at Street Head Caravan Park, so if you fall in love with this idyllic spot in the Dales, you can pitch your caravan here and make it your home-from-home for a whole year.
For plenty of caravanners with limited space at home, booking a seasonal pitch at a campsite can solve the caravan storage issue, as well as turning your own caravan into a reasonably priced holiday home that you can just escape to on a whim, as often as you wish, throughout the holiday season.
Winter storage is also offered from 1 November to 28 February (at £220 in 2014).
If you're looking to buy a new static caravan, or have bought one that needs a pitch, it's also worth knowing that there are serviced holiday home pitches available to rent at Street Head Caravan Park for a reasonable annual pitch fee. Contact Street Head Caravan Park for details.
Whether you're camping in a tent, caravan, motorhome or trailer tent, this campsite would suit you if you like a peaceful rural location and panoramic views. Street Head Caravan Park is close to the Aysgarth Falls.
This campsite makes a good base for anyone who wants to visit the Yorkshire Dales, Cumbria or The Lake District. From here you can also take days out at the seaside, on the north-east and north-west coasts.
