Toller Parkplatz um tagsüber das schöne Dorf mit dem Schloss zu besuchen. Es geht von hier auch ein Fussweg zur Rievaulx Abbey. Von 6.30p.m bis 9.00a.m ist das Übernachten kostenlos. Auch für grössere Wohnmobile geeignet. Vielen Dank an die Gemeinde für diesen Ort.

Stayed here last night for just 1 night, very sheltered and quiet, plenty of bins close by. The toilets didn’t seem to get locked at 7pm like some feedback stated which was a bonus (Think they stayed open all night) Popular spot, we got there about 5pm and there wear 13/14 vans all ready in. Would stay again, so handy for the village square.

Amazing spot. Close to the village which is lovely. Really quite with lots of other vans here. Toilets open early in the morning. Perfect little spot.

12 02 2022
Great spot. Perfect toilet facilities, lots of waste bins and recycling, 4G signal, picnic benches, great for walking, very quiet! Parking cheap enough between 0900-1830, can pay by card/contactless. Can’t believe quite how good it is!

Great place nearly full tonight

What a great place to stay

Great stopover. Stopped and picked up fish and chips in town and then 0.4 mile from the town centre to here. Around six vans here for the night.
30 10 2021
Very busy with campers on a wet Friday night in autumn. very quiet. my new favourite place.
15 10 2021
My wife and I stayed here last weekend. Perfectly safe and 5 minutes walk into town centre. Lovely meal at the Royal Oak in the town centre. Free overnight parking but toilets closed overnight.
9 10 2021
Brilliant spot a few minutes walk into the lovely town with its several pubs, restaurants and takeaways. toilets closed through night, but open around 8am. Around 18 vans there with us.

Spoke to a local who said that the 3 year probation period for this motorhome parking area was coming up for review soon. Some locals have objected to this being extended on the basis of noise and litter being left behind. Yet local shops, cafes and pubs welcome the money spent by visiting motor homers and want to support it continuing. Let’s keep the locals happy by keeping the place tidy.

As previously stated by others, great place just a short walk into town and all free overnight. The only thing I’d add is don’t park in the first car park where it says coaches. As you drive in, it does say on the ground No Overnight Parking. Keep on going to the top car park as that’s where you at stay overnight.
6 10 2021
Great place to stay overnight. plenty of bins and nice clean toilets. 5 minute walk to town.
13 09 2021

Fabulous place with great micro brewery and lots of places to eat, lots to see and the car park is fantastic-quiet with lots of trees and other Vans around.
21 08 2021
Great overnight stop. Very quiet. About 20 vans in the car park. Love it
19 08 2021
A great place to stay - very quiet! It’s nice to see Ryedale District Council welcoming motor homes and providing designated overnight parking!!
11 08 2021
This is a carpark that allows motorhomes to stay the night for free. The spaces are car spaces however overnight this is not a problem as you can park well away from others over a couple of bays. It is a large carpark. quite a few motorhomes here. The carpark is also in a lovely historic town.
11 08 2021
These are Not spaces for motorhomes. they are VERY narrow we parked with 2 inches between ours and the next one, just so that we were in designated lines. how is that safe? couldn't even get out the door until they moved. traffic wardens red hot. gave ticket to a car, even though all 5 machines were out of order for card payments! goodbye Hensley.
4 08 2021
Great parkup arrived at 12pm and paid £6 to park till 12pm next day very quiet spot 6 other motorhomes there Arrive after 6.30 pm and sleep for free till 9am next day Should be more of these parking places
1 08 2021
Quiet night just outside of a historic town
30 07 2021
Great place. Very quiet and a lovely place to visit.
24 07 2021
Perfect stopover. 12 other vans in the top car park. Top car park is surrounded by trees and is away from everything. Free between 18:30 and 9am, short walk to the market Square with pubs and restaurants.
31 05 2021
Stayed 3 nights. excellent. toilets near by. lots of motorhome and campers over night. £6.00 from 9- 6.30 and free all night. quiet nights no one bothers you. great town lots to do. market on a Friday.
30 05 2021
In the centre of Helmsley so good location. Free overnightstay between 19:00 - 09:00. Toilets clean but only open during day. no services but lots of picnic tables to sit at. Good choice of pubs, restaurants and cafe to choose from.
15 05 2021
1st overnight in a car park and couldn't be happier. Absolutely no noise at night, plenty of local shops to by provisions and help the local economy. will definitely be back
11 05 2021
Great stopover place.I cannot hear any traffic just birds.
4 05 2021
Stayed over just before Christmas. We were the only people staying. Toilets shut between 5pm and 8am. Would go back
4 05 2021
This is one of my favourite spots for a small fee you get 24 hours parking & plenty of amenities nearby.
30 04 2021
Really great free carpark for overnight stay from 18.30. Had a great night's sleep on a level pitch. Short walk from the beautiful town. No toilets as it's a carpark but public toilets in town which is a 5 minute walk.. Definitely recommend.
28 04 2021
Been here a few times. Nice grass area with picnic tables. Short walk into town. Quiet apart from the owls! Toilets not open during free parking hours. Gets quite busy.
26 04 2021
A brilliant spot, quite busy but we'll spaced out car park, surrounded by trees and picnic tables. short stroll into town, moved van in morning to free spaces in town and spent a lovely day in pubs, shops and cafes.
25 04 2021
Stayed here The night of 25th April. Great location. We paid £6 for 24h which we think is great value given the location. We had great service and good food from the Royal Oak which we took back to the van along with a pint and a glass of wine in plastic carry out cups. Picnic tables and grass areas right by the car park, really peaceful, would recomend.
24 04 2021
A rare find in England. Basically an aire that is free in the evenings. No services but lots of picnic benches. Highly recommended and huge thank you to the people of Helmsley.
20 12 2020
We stayed for one night. Very short walk into the lovely village of Helmsley. Lots of level parking and toilets available in daytime. Very clean, safe and quiet. There are no charges for parking Dec-March.
24 10 2020
Great park up, Arrived at 8:00 pm and was busy with an least 12 other MH. Walked in to Helmsley and a good meal and pint at the Royal Oak
18 10 2020
Nice quiet place close to Helmsley, wonderful views and forest.
5 10 2020
Great nights sleep. Couple of other vans there as we arrived late. Very quiet so would definitely recommend.
30 09 2020
Great night in August. Helmsley is lovely and has some great cafes for breakfast! Lots of other vans! Would recommend!
20 09 2020
I echo what others have said. Perfect spot for a short 1 or 2 night stop over. There should be more places like this! Plus Helmsley’s lovely.
18 09 2020
Brilliant spot: bins, toilets (daytime only) and picnic tables all nearby. Very peaceful at night, just the sound of owls. Helmsley is a lovely place with loads of pubs, shops and cafes. Walks to Rievaulx Abbey and around Duncome Park estate (small fee) are perfect. Thank you Ryedale Council, I wish more towns and villages in the UK had motorhome-friendly parking like this!
10 09 2020
This is a perfect night stop as said by others.
9 09 2020
Great space for overnight stop. Agree with other comments re payment, free after 6.30pm to 9am. Very short walk into beautiful Helmsley.
31 08 2020

3 11 2019
Fab little over night spot . carpark is like a little campsite overnight very close to shops n pubs. parking charges apply after 9am
31 08 2019
Very nice parking area with no facilities, central to the town and picnic areas close by. Toilets do not stay open all night but are open early in the morning.
26 08 2019
Great spot near to village , a few Motorhomes and camper vans , picnic tables and toilets nearby
23 08 2019

21 07 2019

29 06 2019
Ideal for a cheap night away in a beautiful area
16 06 2019
Bel endroit? on aimerai que celui-ci subsiste. Très calme et à quelques pas de la ville. Bravo.
31 05 2019
Great overnight stopover with lovely pubs, cafes and shops easy to reach.
25 05 2019
Great place to park,but gets very busy during the day with cars squeezing in between camper vans?
9 04 2019
Yes I must agree with other MH and Camper van owners it’s a very nice place to stay and it would be a shame if the council did close it, as the amount of money we spent in the takeaway and pubs would be quite a miss to the local shops we visit at least 4 times a year.Lord Welch
13 03 2019
Moved here due to storm on higher wooded site. Excellent to see Council providing overnight parking for motorhomes, great village in good locations for moors, woodland and rivers. Pubs and shops. Will write to council to complement them on looking after motorhomes.
25 10 2018
Great place to stay . i paid £6 for 24 hours .peacefull location very close to the town and great for walking . Excellent Indian in the town . Butchers etc .Well done Helmsley council. I also emailed the council and thanked them for the MH parking. .
11 10 2018
Great place to spend a few nights, £6 for all day, free at night time. However the facility is only on a three year probation and will be reviewed next year. There have already been objections by local residents but unfounded in my view as the place where motorhomes are parked is well shielded from the rest of the car park. Please try to let the local council know how much the parking is appreciated. The more letters/emails they receive the more likely it is they will extend the practice.
1 09 2018
Great place you stop just minutes walk from town. clean toilets during the day but not at night. Will be stopping here again.
15 08 2018
We stayed here the night of August 13th and the morning of the 14th. The evening was free and paid £3 for 3 hours ending at 12 noon. The village and castle ruins were amazing and the space for RV motohomes was good. The gentleman checking for the ticket at noon was a little aggressive but overall a great place to park the motor home.
26 07 2018
Parfait pour une étape de remontée vers l'Ecosse, le village offre une superbe balade du soir
23 07 2018
Parking vaste bordé par une belle forêt. Le calme absolu. Des tables de pique-nique dans un écrin de verdure au bout du parking. Un joli village pour se balader et faire quelques courses. Bucolique.
10 07 2018
Sehr schöner Platz. Sehr ruhig. Kann man nur empfehlen!
17 06 2018
Many thanks for providing this facility enabling us to visit the beautiful town of Helmsley.
11 06 2018
Calme mis à part les tourterelles qui roucoulent de bonne heure. Toilettes très propres à proximité.
10 06 2018
Une aire pour dormir dans le calme. À le mérite d'exister. Surtout n'arrivez pas avant 18h30 sinon il vous faudra payer 2 livres pour une heure. La nuit est gratuite de 18h30 à 9h le lendemain matin.

Enfin un parking exprès pour les camping-cars en Angleterre, gratuit la nuit en plus ! Parfait !
21 08 2017
Stayed 2 nights this weekend, very clean and safe. Other campervans and motorhomes used the sites. plenty of tables out to eat picnic style. close to town centre for food, drinks and entertainment. Regular traffic warden checks, toilets close at 6pm and open around 8am. £6 A day parking between 9am and 6.30pm. Great spot, would use again.
