Stunning CL Thornton le Beans

Date of Stay: Saturday 26th May 2012

Because we had family commitments  today we hadn’t been able to stay away and had returned from Grassington the previous night.  A quick hunt was required on the Caravan Club website for a CL with adjacent pub and preferably within 25 miles.  What a cracker popped up!  The Crosby Village Inn at Thornton le Beans near Northallerton is simply everything we were looking for.  Arriving around 7:30pm we drove through the car park and directly onto a neatly lawned area at the rear of the pub.  Friendly landlord pops out and tells you where everything is, water, bins, electric etc.  It’s £12 a night, bit steep for a CL but actually great value.  We had a meal in the pub in the evening, super menu, super food (not cheap but definitely worth it), friendly staff and discovered that the Landlord used to sell motorhome chassis to RS Motorhomes and took great interest in the vehicle.  He advised us we could stay as long as we liked on Sunday but that we probably couldn’t leave between noon and 3pm because the car park would be too full, which it was.  Our stomachs were also too full on Sunday to have lunch so instead we snacked outside after which I went into the pub and asked if i could perhaps order a couple of desserts and take them out.  Indeed i could and not only that, the waitress brought them don to the motorhome for us – now that’s service!  We eventually left around 4pm, thoroughly relaxed and somewhat replete.

Definitely worth a visit and definitely the nicest place we have stayed this year so far – 9 out of 10 for sure and we will be back.
