Wyse House Farm- Malton, Yorkshire

Wyse House Farm is a small site with only 22 pitches and Ruth welcomes you with such kindness you instantly feel relaxed.

During our visit there was a nice mixture of tents, campers and caravans over 2 separate fields. There is also a Shepherds Hut (sleeps 2) and a Cabin ( sleeps 6) which looked so adorable and handy if like us some of your group likes to camp and some to glamp.

The facilities are probably the nicest we have come across in our 15 years of camping. Exceptionally clean toilets and free hot showers, under floor heating... my children even asked for a shower! This I can confirm is a rarity! There is also a fully stocked kitchen with a large fridge freezer, kettle, microwave, all the utensils etc. It is so tastefully decorated and you don't feel like you are on a camp site using these facilities, more like an AirBnB. One wall is a black board with plenty of chalk, next to that is a children's toy kitchen and some board games to keep the children occupied while you wash up. Lovely little decor touches and even little jars of flowers for sale for a donation (towards their defibrillator).

Back outside there is a small playground with the most amazing views and a wooden playhouse which was loved by all. It had a hatch (we played cafes for HOURS) and an upstairs. It was a big hit and great shelter from the rain that we had.

One of the main draws of this campsite is it's location. Just on the outskirts of Malton, Food capital of Yorkshire with many farmers markets, artisan producers and so on. You can walk from the site down to the river Derwent and along from there to Old Malton- my husband took the children Hare spotting in the early evenings. Despite been surrounded by this beautiful nature, you can hear road sound, however it was very wet while we were here and that makes roads seem louder. It would not put us off staying here at all and the campsite is a blissful safe environment.

Less than 5 mins drive there is Eden Camp. This is a fascinating place where I visited as a child but unfortunately didn't have the time during this stay. Based in a old Prisoner of War camp, each hut covers a different aspect of the second world war such as the rise of the Nazis, rationing, animals at war, the Blitz and so on.

Also in the area is Castle Howard, see my review here, Dalby Forest, North York Moors with the steam train from Pickering, York itself with Jorvik Viking centre (see review here), and Dig. York Maze (review), Whitby and so much more. You really are spoilt for choice and it really does warrant a return journey to this lovely campsite.
