Slingsby Camping and Caravanning Club Site is a charming park surrounded by woodland in the North Yorkshire countryside. Open from late March until early November, we welcome motorhomes, touring campers, and tents onto the site.
Serviced pitches with electric hook-up are available, and guests can use the on-site Wi-Fi during their stay. Facilities for laundry, washing up, and chemical waste disposal are also available for guests’ convenience.
We are just a short distance south of the North York Moors National Park, where you can travel to enjoy a range of activities, with discovering the local walking trails one of the most popular, and an attraction that brings many guests to our park. Keen hill hikers can also take on the Howardian Hills from the park.
The immediate area surrounding our park is known for its history and heritage. Helmsley is a popular market town where you can pick up a selection of locally sourced produce and delicacies, as well as enjoy a pint of local ale in a village pub, and has a 250-year-old walled garden that still looks majestic today. Castle Howard is an 18th century build and estate, with an award winning farm shop among its features.
Nunnington Hall is a popular attraction for its collection of miniature houses, although the 17th century architecture of the building is great, too. Duncombe Park is another brilliant location, with hundreds of acres of parkland that you can explore at your own pace.
Those who don’t want to spend their whole stay exploring the outdoors are advised to travel into the historic city of York. Here, you will find the famous York Minster, as well as a collective of museums, art galleries, and other cultural centres that predominantly look at the history of Yorkshire but have a modern twist, too, while those looking for shopping and a modern city centre should travel further south to Leeds or Sheffield.
Many of our guests also enjoy heading out to the fabled east coast of England, where you’ll find famous seaside towns such as Scarborough, Filey, and Bridlington. These are ideal locations for relaxing and taking in the sea air, whether you want to spend time on the beaches or simply find a seafront café or restaurant and enjoy the locations for what they are.
Our park is a great base for exploring Yorkshire, whatever you’re looking to do, with access to great cities, beautiful countryside, woodland, and the coast all available when you stay with us.

The site is surrounded by history. The nearby market town of Helmsley has a walled garden dating back to 1758 and Castle Howard is a magnificent 18th century house with impressive gardens and an award-winning farm shop.
Nunnington Hall, on the banks of the River Rye, is a 17th century manor house featuring a collection of miniature houses, while the ruins of Rievaulx Abbey and 450 acres of parkland and Duncombe Park are also worth a visit.
The mediaeval city of York with a variety of museums and other attractions is around half-an-hour’s drive away, and its Park and Ride scheme accepts motorhomes.

This visit to Slingsby was our second since we started caravaning in 2008. This time we took my parents with us in their carvan and enjoyed a family weekend break. When we arrived it was very dark but the site wardens had arranged for us to have pitches next to one another and we were shown to our pitch. The site at Slingsby is small but the facilities are lovely, warm and clean. There is an excellent pub in the village within 5 minutes walking distance of the site which serves very nice food. There are plently of opportunities for country walks from the site and the village of Slingsby is located close to many visitor attractions in the North Yorkshire area including Malton, Pickering and Helmsley. We had a nice walk on a chilly autumn day in Helmsley and stopped for the best hot chocolate in the world at a cafe called Crema Coffee House on Boro Gate (opposite the cut price bookstore). It is well worth a visit for a winter warm up! We have always found the wardens to be friendly and helpful on this site and we will not hesitate to visit again in the future. Mr & Mrs Taylor.

This site is located in a nice area, and in itself in attractive. However, for the facilities available the price is a bit steep for non-members. Some of the staff weren't that friendly, and there was a mop in the showers so that you could clean the area of water after you had showered! (For the benefit of the cleaning staff!!). Nice enough place, but we won't be going back.
