About

Aidan and Ella would like to welcome you to our brand new caravan and camping club site in the middle of the North Yorkshire Moors. Situated within walking distance from the picturesque village of Lealholm, Lawnsgate Farm is a traditional working moorland farm with outstanding views down the Esk Valley.

For those seeking a traditional Yorkshire Moors camping experience, Lawnsgate is perfect. You will receive a very warm welcome from Aidan and Ella and their 2 dogs, Maddy the Labrador and Pip the Spinger Spaniel. Needless to say, therefore, the campsite is dog-friendly, with a dog friendly pub in the nearby village of Lealholm.

There is nothing rushed about Lawnsgate Farm. Many of the farm buildings date back  to the seventeenth century. Aidan and Ella have lived in Lealholm all their lives and Aidan farms Lawnsgate in partnership with his father on the neighbouring farm, Wild Slack.

This tranquil site is surrounded by the beautiful North Yorkshire Moors National Park and we have made every effort to run the site in harmony with these surroundings. There are fabulous panoramic views over the wonderful, expansive moorlands and valleys of the Esk.

The Foord family have farmed here for four generations, Wild Slack being acquired by Aidan’s great grandfather in the 1930’s. More than 70 years later, the farm now hosts a commercial Charolais cross herd as well as a hardy herd of Galloways. We also have a small number of Scottish Blackface sheep and lambs, 2 pigs (and piglets!) and a menagerie of geese, ducks and hens!
