Yes, MAS Northern does like to be beside the seaside too. This year’s North Yorkshire coast meet took us to High Straggleton Farm. Panoramic sea views, dramatic cliffs, sandy beaches, abbeys and national walking trails. High Straggleton Farm had it all.
Sitting in an elevated position between Whitby and Sandsend with panoramic views of the North Sea and surrounding countryside, it was perfect for dramatic cliff walking along the gorgeous Cleveland Way, for enjoying a sandy beach day and exploring the sights of Whitby.

Anyone remember when camping and cycling were like this? When a club has a history as long as the Camping and Caravanning Club, and the Mountain Activity Section within that, chances are you won’t.
But some things never change: views of the hills, a great sunset, bicycles propped up all around, and some good old campsite nourishment. Though, fancy a different kind of cycling outfit, anyone? And maybe the camping accommodation has become a little more complicated (or convenient).
Most of our archives come from after the Club’s establishment in 1901 but we do have some copies of ‘Cycle & Camp’ written by our founder T.H. Holding and published in 1898 pic.twitter.com/8nMWtXZYFJ
Thank you to the North East Lancashire District Association (NELDA) for hosting this meet. MAS Northern always has a wonderful time in this superb walking area of the Yorkshire Dales. Yorkshire Three Peaks nearby, Crummockdale and the blooming marvellous display of spring colour from the spring flowers up in the meadow behind the site.
Never can we tire of camping at this wonderful site.
And, just a little change of scenery from our usual galleries of walking, here’s some wilder life.
At MAS Northern, we organise camping meets from spring through autumn in Yorkshire, Cumbria and Lancashire. Sometimes you’ll find us in northern Wales and Scotland too. Invigorating, inspiring, fresh. Great outdoors activity heaven.
Our meets are usually held in green fields with a beautiful countryside view. These sites offer basic facilities: fresh water, and disposal for chemical toilet and grey waste. Your own sanitation is almost always necessary. Occasionally (but not often), our sites will have limited electric hook-up, toilets or showers.
We welcome caravans, motorhomes/campervans, trailer tents and tents.
We offer some of the most inexpensive camping available and you’re guaranteed a friendly welcome. All members of the Camping and Caravanning Club are welcome to attend our Mountain Activity Section meets (please bring your membership cards).
