Have your say

There aren’t many places where you can go quad biking, play footgolf, ride a Segway, explore a woodland kingdom, try glamping, go on a high ropes course or try your hand at an Olympic standard bobsleigh push start.

But the Camp Hill Estate, just off the A1 near Bedale, is one of those places.

Entry starts at £5 per car, meaning the whole family (and the dog) can pile in and enjoy the great outdoors.

Take a picnic or a barbeque and eat while the kids explore the woodland kingdom. Filled with slides, swings, a ropes course, climbing walls and even a giant treehouse fort, there’s enough to keep them entertained and out of trouble for hours.

If sport is more your thing, challenge the family to a game of footgolf – a highly addictive fusion of football and golf. The nine-hole course incorporates natural obstacles like a pond and hedges to make things a little more interesting.

With miles and miles of trails, winding through dense woodland and beautiful countryside, Camp Hill offers exhilarating quadbike and Segway tours, while the skywalk, zip wire and high ropes course (part of Aerial Extreme) provides sky-high excitement for thrill seekers.

And if all that excitement has got you feeling tired, there are plenty of glamping opportunities, from beautiful bell tents to cosy wooden hobbit pods, to enjoy some much needed rest and relaxation.

They’re also hosting a sausage and beer festival on Saturday, July 23 from 12pm – does it get much better than that?
