By Car

SAT-NAV WARNING! Some sat-navs will calculate a quicker or shorter route that is different from the directions below. This will take you up and down some NASTY hills and very narrow roads. If you are driving a large motor van, towing a caravan or large trailer, please be advised that the route below is the safest option. AVOID routes through Maybeck. Littlebeck, Ugglebarnby, Iburndale (from the coast road), routes through Glaisdale, Egton, Egton Bridge, Grosmont, (from the west and Teesside).  and routes over the moors via Rosedale from Kirkby Moorside.

From the south: Turn north in Pickering onto the A169. In about 13 miles, turn left, signed Goathland and Beckhole. Follow the minor road right through the village, turn right opposite Goathland Garage into our access lane (old railway line). Farm and campsite are at the end of the lane.

From the north: Turn south off A171 about three miles west of Whitby onto the A169 signed Sleights and Pickering. In about six miles turn right, signed Goathland/Beckhole. Turn left opposite Goathland Garage into our access lane (old railway line). Farm and campsite are at the end of the lane.

On the northern approach road via Cow Wath Bank, the road to Partridge Hill Farm (unsigned) is a dead end, and the road to Goathland House Farm is a dead end. Both of these properties have our postcode and are not campsites.  Our only entrance is next to the Goathland Hotel (YO22 5LY)
