Carol, Karl and family would like to welcome you to their beautiful Family Farm located in the outstanding North York 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!

North Shire is a place for Holidays and adventures  with a pinch of Magic for good measure. If you enjoy nature and the beauty of the countryside along with long golden sandy beaches, great places to eat and even better company then this place is for you.

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.

While your staying at North Shire and making special memories do look out for our resident pets. During your stay we request that you don’t feed any of our animals for safety reasons. Whilst onsite please do drive slowly as there are free range animals (and children!) and keep to the sites max speed of 5MPH at all times.

Grant Funding By European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development Project

Expansion of North Shire The Grant has helped north shire expand from a small site into a much larger one by helping north shire build a café for people to come to, a car park so that people who want to enjoy the lovely café and amazing site have a place to park. They have helped us create an amazing enchanted wedding barn for lovely couples to celebrate an amazing day and night with friends and family. Also help towards funding the amazing creation of our famous “ground keeps cottage”
