All Caravan Club members are welcome in the Brawby Grange Orchard! These two peaceful acres are set amongst trees on a flat and well-kept lawn, between the farmhouse and fields. As a Certificated Location (CL), the setting is exclusively for Caravan Club members’ own recreational use, so come and enjoy!

Have friends or relations that don’t ‘do’ camping? Why not bring them along for Bed and Breakfast?! I offer The Granary also as Room Only for longer stays, customers have the benefit of a lovely suite complete with living area, en-suite and comfortable bed, they simply dine with their relations and as it is in the converted building they can come and go as they please.

Bookings

Advance booking is always required by email or phone. Pitches are charged for purely on the basis of an overnight stay. We don’t have strict arrival/departure times as such, but during busy periods we would appreciate it if you can please aim for an arrival time of 3pm earliest, and a departure time of noon latest. This allows time for grass cutting and grounds maintenance. But if this doesn’t fit in well with your plans, please check with us and we can almost always be flexible.

Water

There are two taps for two separate uses in the interests of hygiene. Drinking water can be taken from the tap on the hen hut. Utility water for washing down etc. is at the far end of the field near the gate. We request waste grey water is put in hedgeback not the chemical disposal.  Please note that the toilet emptying point is at a separate point – a lift up lid adjacent to the utility water / chemical disposal rinsing tap at the far end of the field. A flushing toilet and hand basin is to be found next to the entrance gate. We try to ensure that loo roll is provided but bring your own just in case!

Electric hook-ups

There are 6  230V / 10A electric power points available at six positions around the orchard and batteries can be charged on site. When moving around the CL, please be aware of other people’s cables!

Two electric points are on the front of the hen hut
Two electric points are in the pen in the centre of the orchard
Two electric points are on the right of the orchard (south edge)
Three electric points are in the back field

Rubbish and recycling

The refuse/recycling collection is every alternate Wednesday. Please use the green recycling boxes for plastic bottles and tins/cans, the blue canvas bags for paper/card, the black boxes for glass and the green wheelie bin for general rubbish. We would very much appreciate your help in recycling as much as possible.

Grass

We try to keep the grass cut regularly so please avoid leaving objects in the field that could damage the lawnmower!

Shopping

Malton is the nearest and largest town for food provisions with Morrisons, Asda, Lidl and Sainsbury’s Local supermarkets. Pickering and Kirkbymoorside are also nearby and offer a good range of shops. The nearest retail parks are Clifton Moor and Monks Cross (just this side of York) for larger conglomerate high-street style shopping.

We are fortunate enough to enjoy excellent Freeview TV reception from our local transmitter at Bilsdale which on a clear day is visible on the horizon looking north-west.
