Vale of Pickering Caravan Park has been in operation since 1985. It’s run by the Stockdale family, a farming family that diversified into tourism – and with great results.

It’s located a short journey away from the centre of York, where there are plenty of restaurants, pubs, and local attractions. The picturesque coastal town of Scarborough is also a short drive away, as is the stunning North York Moors National Park.

If you want to head out and explore the local area, there are some great walking routes and activities that you and the kids can make the most of Catton Hall, an outdoor adventure centre, is just two miles away, and Delamere Forest is less than ten minutes away by car.
