Directions

Additional Directions Information

Please note: Sat navs tend to send people to the wrong farm, we are not a caravan site! Our farm is clearly signed at our entrance gateway.

If arriving from the North, we are 1.5 miles south of the A170 which runs between Picekering and Scarborough. Turn off at the village of Allerston and drive through the village for 1.5 miles heading towards Yedingham. Do not turn off until you come to Rains Farm which has stone walls either side of the entrance with the name of the farm on both.

Arriving from the South, if you approach from the A64 York Scarborough road, turn off onto the B1258 towards Yedingham. In the village go past the Providence Inn pub on your left, after about 400 metres turn left and then immediately right towards Allerston. We are one mile along that road on the left.
