Stayed here with the kids (ages 8,6,5)and dog and found this campsite to be one of the best we have stayed at.Its really clean and tidy,kids loved the under floor heating in the bathroom area,laundry area with everything you need to hand.The play park is totally safe and visible from nearly every pitch.Nice big area of grass for them to run around on and play footy etc.Lovely areas to walk the dog(who thoroughly enjoyed chasing the rabbits)!! Nicely situated for both Thirsk and North Allerton.Really handy is the Dog and Gun pub that offer a takeout service (food !)a few days of the week and cater for children too with good portions and most enjoyable!! All in all,this site is perfect for families who want a peace and quiet getaway.I cant recommend it enough as all the reviews above show...Well done Hillside !!

Hi we have just returned home from a very enjoyable 7 night stay. This was our second visit to this site and certainly wont be our last. Hillside caravan park
Must be the cleanest site we have stayed on. As for the pitches these are well spaced out and mostly fully serviced. There is a heated amenity block again spotless, this comprises of Ladies and Gents Toilets and Showers, a Laundry Room and a Dishwashing room. Also on site is a spacious play area for the kids and ample Dog walking areas.There is also an information hut thrown in. Not forgetting the outstanding views and local attractions. Ther is something for everyone right on your Caravan step. We would recommend this site to anyone Well Impressed

This is a very nice and friendly site with excellent facilities. The surrounding views are lovely and the childrens park is clearly visible from the pitches. The toilet and shower facilities are excellent and the owners are very friendly and will help you where they can if you have any problems. We stayed on a fully serviced pitch which had a TV aerial point and a chemical waste disposal point on top of the usual water feed etc. I would recommend this site to my friends and family.

We visited this park in July and found it the best site we have been to yet. The location is excellent and the pitches are superb, with electricity, TV/SAT Aerial point, Elsan disposal and water point at the pitch. There is a good children's play area visible from almost every pitch and a fish pond for the keen angler. The Amenity block is spotless and the underfloor heating is like home from home! The owners, Chris and Pat Cook are really friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. For a relaxing weekend, this site is a must try.
Hillside Caravan Park, Thirsk, North Yorkshire


Hillside is a very popular caravan park with prestine facilities. the pitches offer generous amounts of room on a pea gravel hardstanding. on the pitch they have their own fresh water, waste water hook ups as with their own elsan point they also have tv Aerial hook as well. for those who want to stay intouch with their friends and family their is WiFi connection for a small charge.
their is a good play park for the kids with plenty of room to run around and burn off some energy.
just off site thier is lots of fantastic walks for those who like to explore. as with the Dog & Gun public house just down the road from the site of which sells good food and good ale.
all in all this site is well worth a look but due to this site being very popular early booking is advised.
