Newton House Farm

Woodland Walks and Seaside Strolls…

Our location on the edge of the beautiful woodland Sneaton Forest means that we are ideally situated for exploring the many footpaths and bridleways that criss-cross the surrounding countryside.
From a section of the famous Coast to Coast path running upstream from Littlebeck through Falling Foss then onto Maybeck, to a circular walk to explore The Hermitage Cave (a giant carved out boulder) followed by a bite to eat at Falling Foss Tea Garden (the scones and bacon butties are a must!)

A short car journey will take you to the quaint seaside village of Robin Hoods Bay where you can access the old railway line to Ravenscar (make sure you head down to the beach to see the seals), walk along the beach to Boggle Hole or head out onto the cliff path and enjoy stunning views of the coastline on a walk along the Cleveland Way to Whitby.
Whether you’re an avid hiker or just looking for somewhere for the kids and dogs to blow off some steam there is something for everyone when staying at Newton House Farm

2024 Here We Come!

We had a hugely successful opening year in 2023, despite the British weather doing its best to dampen our spirits. Thankfully our guests are made of tougher stuff and they continued to book despite the disappointing forecasts – for this we are so grateful!

Having never run a campsite before (our background is in farming which we first diversified several years ago into holiday cottages too) we had a lot to learn and were instantly humbled by just how many people wanted to come and stay on our site. This highlighted to us that the facilities block we had constructed originally was not large enough to cater for both our glamping guests and the large number of campers that we were receiving and therefore we started planning another facilities block to cater solely for campers, allowing the original block to be used only by the glamping guests.

This new amenity block will comprise separate men’s and women’s facilities, a small entrance hall where there will be a fridge/freezer and microwave for guests to use, as well as having an undercover outside washing up area. It will also be located closer to the camping pitches.

Unfortunately due to unforeseen delays in construction the new amenity block won’t be completed for 2024 as originally planned however we are hopeful that it will be up and running by Summer 2025. In the meantime we are adding two temporary toilets that will help ease the pressure on the existing facilities.

Exploring The Yorkshire Coast

Fun Fact!  Did you know The North York Moors is the driest of all the National Parks in the UK?

There’s so much to do on the Yorkshire Coast, all easily accessible from Newton House Farm!

Whitby Abbey

Within five miles of our site there is the historic port of Whitby, now a popular tourist destination. You can spend a day at the beach, spend your pennies at the amusement arcades, eat ice cream and candy floss whilst enjoying the view from the piers. Wander the cobbled streets of the old side of town, hunt out unique shops and cafes, buy yourself a piece of Jet; the locally found fossilised stone made famous by Queen Victoria. Climb the 199 steps (don’t forget to count them!) and explore the Abbey ruins on the East Cliff.

View over Robin Hoods Bay

Robin Hoods Bay
Head five miles in the other direction and prepare to have your breath taken away by the view as you descend into Robin Hoods Bay. A quaint fishing village; famous for its history of smugglers. Explore the narrow winding streets and take a walk along the sand to the café at Boggle Hole. Stay until dusk and join a ghost walk to learn more about the smuggling history.

The Esk Valley
Drive across the Moors to Grosmont or Goathland and board the North York Moors steam railway to Pickering. Have a walk through Goathland; well known for the ITV police drama Heartbeat and the railway station that appeared in the Harry Potter films. This is the only village in the Esk Valley that is relatively flat!
If you follow the River Esk up the valley you’ll find many little villages to explore: Glaisdale; where you will find Beggars Bridge, with its romantic tale. Lealholm; home of the stepping stones. Visit Egton in August and enjoy a day at the local show, one of the biggest one day shows in the country.
Spend hours walking the many footpaths and trails on offer and rest your legs at the end of the day in one of the many fabulous and friendly country pubs.

A trip down the coast to Scarborough offers another day on the beach or at the fun fair. Visit the Sea Life Centre to feed the penguins or spend the afternoon at Alpamare Waterpark where kids can play on the flumes and adults can relax in the spa that offers 13 different treatment rooms.

Coast to Coast

It’s an exciting time for The Coast to Coast, after decades of being the most popular long distance walk in the country; it is finally going to be granted National Trail status. It was announced last August that £5.6 million will be invested in upgrading the network of footpaths, bridleways and other rights of way that make up this iconic route.

The 192 mile walk from St Bees on the Cumbrian coast to Robin Hood’s Bay on the Yorkshire coast was first devised by renowned Fell walker, Alfred Wainwright. To this day thousands of people from all around the world travel to the United Kingdom with the sole purpose of completing the infamous trail. Over the course of two weeks walkers get to take in the scenic beauty of three of England’s National Parks; The Lake District, The Yorkshire Dales and The North York Moors National Park.

Our campsite is positioned near to Falling Foss Waterfall, a notable attraction by which the C2C passes, which makes us an ideal stop for your final night beneath the stars before your final day of walking to reach Robin Hood’s Bay. Our site provides a peaceful setting to enjoy a relaxing evening, whilst our modern facilities with hot showers are just what you need after a long day of walking across the moors. Whilst there is not a pub near to us we can offer a bespoke evening meal prepared just for you, all you need to do is get in contact when you make your booking to discuss your requirements.  

We look forward to welcoming you to our site very soon!
