About Whorlton Pods

Suitable For

Glamping, families, couples – yes. Tents, campervans, caravans, dogs – no.


Whorlton Pods is on the western edge of the North York Moors, so there are plenty of good walks and attractions on the doorstep (and it's a 45-minute drive to the coast, to popular spots like Staithes and Whitby). It's a 10-minute zip down the A172 to the National Trust-owned ruins of Mount Grace Priory, House and Gardens (01609 883494). Walk through the recently renovated gardens, enjoy the scenery from the onsite café or explore the ruins of the medieval monastery before visiting the reconstructed monk’s cell. Roseberry Topping is just over 15 minutes away, if you choose to visit then you’ll also be able to walk through Newton Wood while you’re there, full of equally stunning scenery. From the summit of the Roseberry Topping hill, you’ll be able to see panoramic views of the surrounding countryside, taking it all in while you recover from the challenging climb.

Food & Drink

There are several pubs within walking distance. The nearest is the Sutton Arms (01642 700382) around 15 minutes away – dine out in their marquee area under their fairy lights or order off their takeaway menu and enjoy their dishes back at your pod. But you can also stroll 20 minutes or so cross county to the two pubs in Swainby, passing a ruined medieval castle (Whorlton Castle) along the way. There's the Black Horse Inn (01642 7 00436) and the Blacksmiths Arms (01642 700303), as well as the Rusty Bike Café (01642 688549) by day.

Fantastic Accommodation and Location

I had a fabulous time staying at the Topping pod for 2 nights. It was perfectly suited for a quick getaway with my partner. It was extremely well equipt, enabling us to cook and sleep comfortably! The hot tub was amazing and the location was excellent for hiking. We also enjoyed a really good pub dinner in the village down the road. Would definitely go again

Fantastic break

Just returned from a weekend stay at Whorlton Pods. What a beautiful setting! Lovely and cosy pod, and added welcome bonus was the delicious lemon drizzle cake. The hot tub was the main attraction and didn’t disappoint. Our host was very helpful and checked daily to see if everything was ok. They have thought of everything to make our stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Highly recommend and would definitely return. Definitely luxurious!

Fantastic stay...10/10! 👏🏼

We have just returned from a weekend away at Whorlton Pods, having stayed in the “Topping” pod. The entire experience was fabulous! The area is stunning and extremely picturesque with lots to explore nearby. Upon arriving in the pod, it was very clean and tidy, it gave an immaculate first impression (bed also super comfy!) The hot tub also very clean — lovely to enjoy on an evening after a walk/bike ride! We loved the personal touches, Ali had left a lovely personalised postcard with a home baked lemon drizzle cake (which was absolutely delicious!). Chris introduced himself when we arrived to ensure everything was ok and if we needed anything. He was very helpful, as we didn’t know the area we wanted to find some biking/walking routes to explore, Chris helped with this straight away and even emailed over the links for these routes. We ended up doing these over the course of the weekend and needless to say we weren’t disappointed! We were kept informed of when our Pod was ready before arriving by text message and Ali also messaged to make sure we received the map info from Chris. As the site currently only has 2 pods it is very quiet with no disturbance nearby whatsoever and fantastic open views! Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would most definitely recommend to friends/family. We will be staying here again in the future. The fact it’s a short drive away from lots of great villages/places to eat etc. is a bonus. 10/10 for accommodation/service/location 😊 Thank you Chris & Ali 👍🏼 The Richardson’s x

Getting There

Leave the A19 onto the A172 (by the Cleveland Tontine) travelling towards Stokesley. Continue for just under five miles, passing Swainby village on the right, Whorlton Pods is the next farm entrance after this, look out for a maroon/red signpost for a clue you’re at the right place.

The nearest train station is in Northallerton but from there it's still a good 20-minute taxi journey.
