Holme House Residential Centre and Campsite

Holme House Residential Centre offers a great get away for your group. It is located in the quite hamlet of Esk Valley, near Grosmont, Whitby in the heart of the North Yorkshire Moors. You can choose to stay in the stone built farmhouse or camp in the neighbouring field, or why not book both for a larger event?

Special discounted rates at Holme House for the rest of 2018!

We are offering an overnight stay for just £80 per night for the rest of 2018 (£100 for units outside NYNE County)

Currently there are 3 weekends still available 4-6 Oct, 2-4 Nov and 30 Nov-2 Dec. The last one would make an ideal Christmas themed weekend. Alternatively you could book just one night for a 24 hour sleepover. A mid-week option is also available during October half term.
