Top attractions in Sleights North Yorkshire
Located only a mile from Sleights, 1½ miles from Grosmont, with its station on the heritage North Yorkshire Moors Railway line and five miles from the quaint, picturesque fishing port of Whitby, this newly opened Camping Pod site is set within the grounds of a family farm, located within the exhilarating North York Moors National Park. Whitby is one of the top seaside resorts in the UK and is famous for its Captain Cook connections, Whitby Abbey and the 199 steps, East and West piers, blue flag beaches and fish & chips. There’s always plenty to see and do.
Partridge Nest Farm offers total peace and tranquillity and is a real haven for wildlife. The area is a walker’s paradise and boasts spectacular scenery all around. From the site’s elevated position on Eskdaleside, the ruins of Whitby Abbey can be spotted in the distance.
The fully insulated Pods are cool in warm summer months, yet with their electric panel heater, offer a warm, cosy haven on chilly evenings. All Pods have sofa-beds, power sockets, interior lighting and auto sensor lighting in the porch (activated at dusk) and are fully glazed and fully secure.
There are six Pods to choose from: Barn Owl, Grouse and Pheasant, and three with en suite WC facilities: Partridge, Quail and Lapwing. The site offers a shower house with two wet-rooms (includes free hot water).
Please do bring along extras such as air beds, bedding, kettle, crockery, fridge/cool box and extra chairs as you would for tent camping.
Enjoy a stroll around Bill’s Meadow (available for guests’ use) which has lovely views of the valley and watch out for the North Yorkshire Moors Railway steam train which frequently runs during the season from Grosmont to Whitby. You might even spot a partridge, deer or pheasant who sometimes pay the farm a visit, whilst enjoying the alfresco dining facilities and plenty of fresh air.
