Westgate Carr Farm, Pickering

Home Page

Welcome To Our Website!

Westgate Carr Farm idylically located in the Vale of Pickering, gateway to the North Yorkshire Moors, is now under new ownership/management.

Having finally completed legal purchase in late December 2012, we immediately implemented a comprehensive programme of general improvement & refurbishment throughout & the campsite today is rated 10/10 by customer reviews on the UKCampsite website. We will be building a new toilet & shower block with pot washing etc in 2015

Family owned, our immediate attention is being directed to providing our campsite customers with an improved, more satisfying & rewarding experience; with a strong focus on enhancing the natural habitats, ecosystems & ecology of the wildlife resident around the farm.
All our campsite pitches are grass based although there is a hard-standing area for Motorhomes during inclement weather conditions & all are now served with new electric hook ups providing 10 amps each. With 360 degree views, no noise or light pollution & fantastic sunsets over the moors, Westgate Carr Farm Campsite must be shortlisted for your holiday!


Our dedicated circular nature trail/dog walk along our fields to the boundary with Costa Beck, a fast flowing chalk stream where you may see Trout & Grayling, Herons, Swans, Kingfishers, Wagtails & even Otters has proved particularly enjoyable . Bullfinches & Long Tailed Tits are resident in the hedges surrounding the camping field as are Goldfinches, Yellowhammers, Woodpeckers & Owls as well as more commonly seen wild birds such as Chaffinches & Robins etc. Roe Deer are regular visitors to the field adjoining the campsite.

The immediate grounds have been landscaped with trees being planted & the provison of a bird feeding station together with the creation of new paddocks for occasional use by our Alpacas &/or rare breed poultry allows guests to observe & potentially interact with the animals if desired. The Alpacas are particularly inquisitive, if not wary, of strangers but are highly amusing when relaxed. We could quite literally watch them all day long!

Munchie, a stunning Fell Pony & his best mate come companion, Binky, a minature Shetland Pony have arrived on the farm (October-13) & we plan/hope to offer (or should I say Binky) intends to offer pony rides to young children in 2014

Gypsy, a lovely natured, gentle elderly Cob has now joined Munchie & Binky at Westgate Carr Farm

We have also acquired a quintet of Indian Blue Peafowl (2 Peacocks & 3 Peahens) that now freely wander the farm, a site to behold. We are keeping our fingers crossed for fertile eggs & babies in 2014. Sadly no babies in 2014 but we are delighted to report 10 chicks emerged from their eggs in July 2015!


We further intend to extend our interest in Rare Breeds with the introduction of a few pigs, sheep together with the possibility of an odd donkey or 2 in the near future.

Beyond that who knows but our desire & passion is to improve & upgrade all aspects of the farm to provide the owners with a desirable country house lifestyle & all campsite visitors with an undeniably rewarding short break or longer holiday in one of the most beautiful areas of the UK countryside. Our intention is for Westgate Carr Farm to be recognised as a top-end campsite where guests can return time after time in confidence of a warm & friendly welcome with unrivalled peace & tranquility.

We look forward to meeting you!
