Carol, Karl and family would like to welcome you to their beautiful Family Farm located in the outstanding North Yorkshire Moors set amongst 6 acres of Beautiful old English countryside.

Carol and Karl have now restored the Farm back to its former glory to create the North Shire Holiday retreat.

Whether you’re looking for a short break in a tent, a long weekend in a caravan or very magical and unique family holiday in either our Shire House, Story Book Cottage or Gypsy Bow Top Wagons and shepherds hut, we are sure to have something suitable for you.

The family oriented site welcomes families of all ages or couples wanting to enjoy a quiet, pretty site with local attractions no more than a short trip away.

We have a variety of free-range hens and various farm animal residents which can be enjoyed by everyone that stays with us. We have peacocks, chickens, miniature ponies, horses and goats!

This idyllic spot is placed perfectly from the hustle and bustle of tourist based Whitby, yet can accommodate up to 5 hook-ups and up to 10 tents at a time, along with 10 hardstanding pitches for caravans ( including seasonal pitches ) and our story book cottage which houses up to 8 people along with our Shire House which can accommodate up to 6 people for a week’s break. We look forward to you stay with us soon!

Created by A Family with five children themselves North Shire has been made to please all even children who didn’t survive growing up. With Beautiful surroundings and within the North York Moors national park there is plenty to see and do.


The Stunning fishing town of Whitby is a 15 minute drive away, with bustling Dickensian streets and shire hole shops selling anything from sweets to antiques or even a shop where you can have a vintage portrait taken with family and friends.
