Helmsley (N Yorks): free overnight parking

Driving through this delightful market town I spotted a sign saying “Motorhome Parking” just to the north of the town centre on the B1257 to Stokesley (another lovely market town). An abrupt change of direction brought us to the Cleveland Way CarPark where there are 6 dedicated MH parking spots which are FREE OVERNIGHT (1830-0900).

A super secluded location with easy access to the town centre.
Rydale District Council state “At Cleveland Way in Helmsley, between the hours of 6.30pm and 9.00am, there is capacity for up to six motorhomes to park free of charge in the overflow car park. Drivers must park their vehicles in the parking bays. Normal parking regulations apply between the hours of 9.00am and 6.00pm.”

Well worth a visit – Gordon

Just to add that if you arrive during the day to visit the town and your motorhome does not fit in one bay you can park across two bays so long as you pay for them, as we did a couple of weeks ago. Quite refreshing for a council to permit such a sensible solution!

Also the limit for 6 motorhomes is not strictly enforced and they appear to not worry about more than 6 vans parking up there.

If you need any further information on the subject I used the following contact information to liaise with:

They were really helpful and even took the time to go and photograph the car parking area and send me a picture (see below)

I would definitely use this again as a free over-night stop (6:30pm till 9:00am) without hesitation.
