Sheriff Hutton Camping and Caravanning Club Site is one of the most popular caravan parks in North Yorkshire. Open from late March until early November, Sheriff Hutton Camping and Caravanning Club Sitewelcomes a motorhomes, tents, and touring campervans into the park. We have a range of serviced and hard-standing pitches available allowing us to cater to the needs of all our guests.
Our park is child and pet friendly with a play area and plenty of open space to run around in. Serviced pitches enjoy electricity hook-ups while facilities for other essential tasks, including laundry and washing up, are available on-site. Guests can use Wi-Fi internet across the park to plan their day and to decide which part of picturesque North Yorkshire they wish to explore.
Our park is only a few miles from York as well as being within easy reach of the popular coastal towns of Filey and Bridlington, while also being ideally situated for those who want to explore the North York Moors National Park.
The short journey into York is one taken by nearly all of our guests. York Minster is the most famous attraction of the city, but the National Railway Museum and River Ouse boat trips are also exciting things to discover when you head there. If you find yourself heading into York and you don’t know where to begin exploring, guided walking tours are available that will take you past all the most notable sights and landmarks of the city.
While the North York Moors are easy to explore on foot, bicycle, or even horseback, the best perspective comes from taking the North York Moors light railway. There are plenty of local attractions to appeal to the whole family, including the Flamingo Land theme park, which features rides for all ages as well as animals, a gym, and even a golf course.
If you want to explore the other cities of Yorkshire then Leeds and Sheffield are both within reach of the site, and are both places where you’ll find a range of great shopping centres, restaurants, and entertainment facilities before heading back to our site in the countryside. Early risers should definitely head out to the east coast, where you’ll find the popular town of Scarborough as well as Filey and Bridlington, all great places to spend a day by the sea and enjoy traditional fish and chips.
Types of pitches:
Hardstanding with electric hook-up
Grass pitch with electric hook-up
Hardstanding only pitch
Grass only pitch (no electric)
Grass only pitch for larger tents

The coastal towns of Filey and Bridlington are nearby and York, with its Roma, Viking and mediaeval heritage, is only a few miles away. A variety of attractions include York Minster, Jorvik Viking Centre, the National Railway Museum and boat trips on the River Ouse. The city has a good Park and Ride scheme to enable you to explore on foot and there are also several walking tours.
You can give your feet a rest on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway – which travels through the heart of the North York Moors National Park – or take in a variety of local attractions. Flamingo Land is an ideal family day out with animals and theme park rides, while Yorkshire Air Museum is based on a World War Two Bomber Command station.

This is, from what we can work out, our 5th trip to Sheriff Hutton. This time around we found that we had new wardens welcoming us the site. They were warm and friendly and jokingly advised us that we "probably knew the site better as we've only been here for three weeks."
In all our trips to SH we've never had the same pitch, and this time took our place on hardstanding spot that enabled us to point the caravan nose in and have the awning, or in our case, the canopy pointing towards the sun. This did mean that we were close to the small play area but that wasn't a problem as our daughter made full use of her lack of distance between us and the swings, and there was no noise from them after 9pm.
As usual the facilities were up to scratch. The toilet blocks were clean and the showers were hot. You couldn't ask for anything else from a site.
The site was busy but it never felt full as I never experienced any queueing for the shower or use the loo.
The office doubles as a small shop where some basics could be purchased, and we had to renew a gas bottle, which was sorted out within a couple of minutes. Gas purchases are cash only. To be honest we've only ever bought gas from this site. I guess it was just the luck of the draw it ran out where it did.
There is plenty to do in the area, and I wholeheartedly recommend driving the 10 minutes to Rawcliffe Bar and use the Park and Ride to access the fine city of York (the bus goes right by the National Railway Museum too - drop off and pick up are from the same stop!) We paid £5.40 for a return ticket. That was for two adults, and the kid went free! Bargain!
The drive from the A19 via Easingwold is a well trodden path, and the roads can be a bit rough in places, but at least one particular stretch some resurfacing had been done so internal organs remained in situ.
We will be returning the next time we fancy to more time in one of our favourite places in England.

visited autumn 2004: This site is in an excellent location for visiting York & the surrounding area's. A 15 minute drive & you can leave your car at the Park & Ride and avoid the congestion of York City centre. There is also a good shopping complex on the outskirts of town as well as the attractions of York Minster, the Air Museum, the National Railway Museum & the best of all in our opinion, Eden Camp. The site is what you would expect from the C&C Club, but the biggest letdown was the terrible attitude of the site stewards! They seemed to take an instant dislike to young familes (we were not on our own as we witnessed similar hostility) & made sure that any families were sited well away from the steward's camping pitch. This was very odd indeed as we had always found the C&C stewards at other sites very friendly, but not on this occassion however! The lady steward even reduced my son to tears when he went to purchase the official site pendant, only to be told she had aready boxed them up to return to head office (this was three weeks before the site officially closed). Upon our return we reported this to the C&C Club but they were not really interested in our feedback, so we terminated our membership & joined the Caravan Club. It was sad to experience this bad attitude as the site itself was in a good location for exploring. Hopefully the rude stewards have gone on to pastures new since our visit!
