Rosedale Abbey Caravan and Camping Park is a family friendly holiday destination in the heart of the North York Moors National Park.

The site is open from early March until the end of October every year, and welcomes guests with motorhomes, tents and touring caravans. The park also has glamping pods for those without their own accommodation, while there's also a selection of modern and well-equipped holiday cottages for hire.

Rosedale Abbey Caravan and Camping Park has a four-star rating from EnjoyEngland as well as a four-pennant rating from the AA. This is a dog friendly campsite.

For touring and camping guests, pitches with electric hook-ups are available, while there is a separate non-electric tent field for those looking to get back to basics and enjoy an authentic camping experience. The glamping pods are also available with or without electric. Other facilities found at the park include a toilet and shower block, a laundrette and a room for doing your washing up.

Seasonal touring pitches are also available at Rosedale Abbey Caravan and Camping Park, meaning guests can return as often as they wish during the eight-month open season.

A children’s adventure playground is found at the site, while there is plenty of open space for enjoying ball games and other activities. A well-stocked on-site shop enables guests to stock up on essentials during their stay, while Calor Gas exchanges can also be taken care of.

The location of Rosedale Abbey Caravan and Camping Park, which is within half an hour's drive of the ancient market town of Pickering, means that the whole of the North York Moors are at hand for guests to explore. There is the option of heading out onto the Moors and exploring at leisure, or book guided tours and excursions. Walking and cycling are typically the two most popular activities across the Moors, with miles of varying terrain at hand whether guests are new to the outdoors or experienced hikers or mountain bikers.

Woodland, Moorland and the coast are all waiting for you to explore in the North York Moors National Park – there's also a Go Ape! at Dalby Forest, near Pickering, which is a lot of fun for children of all ages. This is also a great area for stargazing.

Or maybe a steam train adventure appeals to you? Take a ride on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, for a scenic tour through Heartbeat Country – there's a beautifully restored station at Pickering, close to this campsite. The routes are seasonal, so check them out before you visit.

And if you want yet more of the great outdoors, the Howardian Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is also nearby. Or how about a day beside the seaside? You could visit Scarborough, which is within an hour of this campsite.

So why not booking a glamping pod or holiday home, or spend your camping, motorhome and caravan holidays at Rosedale Abbey Caravan and Camping Park, and discover all the area has to offer.

The site was over crowded with very little space between tents.Poor facilities for the amount of people on site i.e Two sinks for washing up.The level of noise at night was really unacceptable.We are a family of five experienced campers.I must say that the noisey nights, no space around tents,lack of facilities for the amount people on site put dampers on our weekend

This campsite is set in a beautiful area, there is 2 lovely pubs within walking distance and the village is a typical yorkshire village idyllic.
we booked in advance for 3 nights over the jubilee weekend, the website states there is tent pitches (without electricity) for 50 tents. When we arrived the place was heaving !!! They had trouble finding us a pitch, we were told to pitch on a patch of grass between a fork in the road only 3ft away from the next tent, all tents were very close together. We counted over 100 tents on a site for 50 !!!! There were 5 ladies toilets and 4 gents, for over 100 tents,there was not enough water to clean your teeth let alone wash or shower, there was literally a trickle of water from all the taps, it didn't matter what time of the day it was either! The 2nd morning the gents toilets were completely out of action ! The last straw was when they had to close the ladies toilets altogether, leaving 1 operational loo.
Looking at other reviews its not a new problem so why take an extra 50 + tents knowing that the facilities just wouldn't be able to cater for them its just greedy. With no washing, shower or toilet facilities, we had no choice but to come home a day early, we will never return !

This is a very well run, clean and friendly site. The site is very relaxing and the faciliities ate great. The stream running through the site is great for the kids to paddle in and play on 'tarzies'. the park is also great for the kids with a full size table tennis table, and basketball net.

Excellent peaceful site with well maintained
modern clean facilities (cleaned between 11am and 1pm)
the levelled tourer pitches with paved area to one side made siting our motorhome very easy
The stream/river passing through kept the kids entertained (and wet !) The whole site is very sheltered and tranquil and we would definitely revisist

Booked this site in early feb giving size of tent. On arriving sent to a pitch which was too small sloping from right to left and sloping back. Offered another pitch which was slightly bigger but would have to pay an extra £10.50 a night so we came home disappointed will not book any flower of may campsites again.

we are a family with two young children, who wanted the tranquility and picturesque setting that rosedale park appeared to offer. However, the site itself was tidy and ample but could do with markings for your tents to avoid having to move 3 times like we were asked to do, despite being told we were ok after the first time. The footpath to the shower block could do with concreting to avoid trampling mud into the slippy and dirty shower and toilet area. The showers were cleaned at 7 am which is the most inconvenient time as most people are getting up and want to use the facilities. At peak times the showers are inconsistant in temperature and pressure with most people experiencing a trickle in which to wash in. There were two sinks for washing up pots in which considering the size of the park was exceptionally inadequate!!!
The drinking water on the site was so overly chemicalized that it not only tasted bad despite boiling, but the smell lingered on everything!!!
I would advise anyone looking for a relaxing, CLEAN break from home to use another site.

We have visited this site a number of times, but not for the last couple of years, and will not do so again until things are changed. We were a large family party camping in the first field. The toilet/washing facilities have been moved an area next to the childrens slide. We went camping in August, so obviously it had been raining in previous weeks, but for the last week it had been fine, however the site was still a little damp, but this wasn't a problem. However the toilet facilities, especially the ladies, was. The floor appears to slope down from the showers and into toilets. The drainage for the showers appears to be extremely poor as when somebody had a shower, I saw waves of water sloshing down the slight slope, which meant that the water had no where else to run except into the toilets. This meant that when you went to the toilet you had to remember to roll your trouser legs up, as your feet were sitting in about 3 inches of water. The toilets in the ladies ran out of toilet roll by Sunday morning, but they had been refilled at about 9. Apparently the mens toilets weren't as bad, but their showers were the opposite way round from the ladies, so the water drained into the showers, not the toilets.
With regards to washing up facilities, there were 2 sinks with plenty of hot water. However because there were only 2 sinks this meant that there was a wait and a queue for over an hour to use them at peak times.
The village itself is lovely and prior to changing the toilet block it was a lovely site.
The staff were friendly and pleasant, but when one of our party expressed disappointment at the situation they told us that they are only the wardens and the owner does nothing when they tell him about the problems.
