If you’re looking for that chilled-out glamping/camping experience within a special, restful and peaceful place that doesn’t cost the earth then The Hideaway is the place to be.

Preserving the environment is key to The Hideaway. Electricity is supplied via Britain’s leading green energy supplier. The showers are heated by a biomass boiler and rainwater is used for flushing ‘the facilities’.

The Hideaway is off the beaten track but is only a short stroll from the local village facilities and bus stop. This site is popular for walkers and cyclists and is situated close to the market towns of Thirsk and Easingwold and is excellently based for visiting the historic city of York (15-20 minutes’ drive), the Yorkshire Dales, the North York Moors and the Yorkshire Coast (all between 45 minutes to 1 hour’s drive away).

We offer 40 camping pitches within a 6 acre field nestling in the midst of our 110 acre farm, on land belonging to Baxby Manor (original Manor House, built over 700 years ago). The site is bounded on one side by a stream and the rest is fringed by trees – so it’s totally in tune with nature.

Relax whilst watching the Kingfishers and Otters and spotting lots of varied small birds in the hedgerows. In the evening why not toast some marshmallows on your own campfire whilst gazing at star laden skies.

Bell Tents, Pods and Pitches … whichever suits your stay …

Bell Tents (5): Plush and luxurious. Two ‘Superior’ 5 metre Tents, sleeping up to 4 adults, 1 double and 2 single futons, plus three ‘Standard’ 4 metre Tents, sleeping up to 2 adults and 2 children (two double foam sofa beds). All available with lanterns, tea lights, cutlery, glasses, kettle, single gas ring and much more (check our website). Own bedding needed. Sorry, dogs not allowed in the Bell Tents.

Ecopods (3): Cosy and relaxing. Two Double pods (sleeps 2 per pod) and one Family sized pod (sleeps 2+2). The Doubles have a double bed and the Family pod has a double bed, a bunk bed and a single bed (bunks and single bed for children only, as they’re 2ft wide). All Pod beds have mattresses. Lanterns hung outside for tea lights. Please note no outdoor shoes to be worn in the Pods, so the wooden floors are kept clean – a home from home! Own bedding is required. Campfire cooking only – and great fun – that’s what Eco Camping/Glamping’s all about! Sorry, no dogs allowed in the Ecopods.

Pitches (32): Pitches for Campervans and Tents. Some have electric hook-up so book early! Pitch includes 2 adults in one Campervan or Tent. Hot water showers and fire pits also included.

Dogs ( £2 additional charge) are welcome but must be kept on leads at all times (as it’s vital to protect the farm livestock and the surrounding wildlife). There’s no dog exercise area on the site. Farm lanes and footpaths provide plenty of walking opportunities nearby.
