Partridge Nest Pods

Camping Pods and Holiday Cottage in the Esk Valley


Our little pod site has just six camping pods. We are wonderfully situated in the magical North York Moors National Park yet just five miles from the stunning coastline. The site is peaceful with plentiful wildlife and open space. We hope you will escape your everyday and get back to nature at Partridge Nest farm.

Are you open all year round?

Yes we are. We open every day from April to October and weekends and selected weekdays from November to March

Can I bring my dog?

Sorry but we don't allow dogs at the pod site (although we do allow them in our holiday cottage). We only allow assistance dogs.

Is there WiFi?

There is wifi available in and around our reception building from 07.30 - 10.00 and 15.00 -19.00. Mobile phone signal can be very good, depending on the provider.

Do you provide bedding?

Bedding isn't provided, you'll need to bring your bedding or sleeping bags and pillows however, we do have bedding packs (for the sofa bed only: mattress topper, sheet, duvet, 2 pillows) available to rent for £20 per stay

What else should I bring?

There's a simple sofabed (188cm x 114cm opened out) in each pod so you will need to bring airbeds/campbeds for any additional persons in your pod. There is also a kettle in every pod. Otherwise it's really is up to you but a lot of people bring a towel, disposable or camping/small barbecue, coolbox, camp chairs, camp stove, cups, plates, cutlery, matches or lighter, camp table, small lamp and even fairy lights! Don't forget your toothbrush.

We do have airbeds, coolboxes and camping stoves available to rent - see the 'News' section for details or give us a call to reserve.

Can we cook in the pod?

It's fine to use a kettle in your pod but no toasters, microwave ovens or any naked flames. There is a microwave oven provided in a separate building for your use.

Is there a fridge available?

There isn't a fridge but there is a freezer so you can refreeze your ice packs for your coolboxes. We also have coolboxes available to rent for £2 per day or £5 per stay.

Is the pod heated?

Each pod is very well insulated and has an electric panel heater that keeps you toasty warm when it's chilly outside.

Is there a shower in the pod?

The pod is like a wooden tent with power points, a heater and just one simple sofa bed provided. Three of our pods have an ensuite WC with basin and hot water. Showers and more WCs are in a separate building on site.

Is there a shop nearby?

There's a well stocked Spar shop in Sleights, a mile and a quarter away (open 07.00-22.00), an award winning butcher, Radfords (next to Spar) and a branch of Bothams bakery a couple of doors down from Spar, opposite the village car park (free to park).

Is there a pub/cafe nearby?

The Plough Inn in Sleights is a mile away and takes 18 minutes to walk each way along the road (not a busy road)

There is also a fantastic fish and chip shop (rivals any of the Whitby offerings!) Eskdale Fisheries, just a little way further on than The Plough.

Grosmont, home of the Heritage Railway, a mile and a half away, also has the Station Tavern, Co-op, numerous cafe's and a gallery.

The Stables Restaurant is 3.5 miles away, enroute to Whitby and serves breakfast from 7am (lunches and dinners also served)

Can I bring a firepit/firebowl/brazier?

We don't allow the above (or any naked flames other than barbecues or gas stoves) in the pod area but we have a lovely communal campfire area in the adjacent East field for everyone's use. Bring your marshmallows!

Do you provide wood for the fire?

We sell bags of dry logs for £5.

Can we pitch a gazebo next to our pod?

We are only a tiny site so we don't allow any additional gazebos or pup tents pitched, but we do have some covered cooking areas near the pods should it rain.

Can I get to Partridge Nest Farm by public transport?

There is a station in Sleights on the Middlesbrough to Whitby line. The station is approximately one and a half miles from Partridge Nest farm. There is a bus that runs from Whitby to Sleights (Arriva 95). The Arriva X93 also runs regularly between Scarborough, Whitby and Middlesborough and there are trains to Scarborough from York, Leeds, Liverpool and Manchester. Coastliner also runs the 840 services from Leeds and York to Whitby (via Sleights) and Scarborough.
