Autumn Gold Meet
05/10/2018 - 07/10/2018
Thornton-le-Dale, North Yorkshire
The Autumn Gold meet is now in its 6th year and, following a break from High Grundon Farm in 2017 due to the saturated ground (we had so much rain late summer 2017!), we are back to this friendly site for another relaxed ballooning weekend. Let's hope for the weather of 2015 and 2016, and perhaps even better. We are just down the road from Thornton-le-Dale, which is the quintessential 'chocolate box' village and well worth a visit. Bring your choice of tent, caravan or motorhome; book an onsite camping pod or even one of the lovely cottages. There is plenty of local accommodation too - check out for a host of hotels, guest houses, B&B's etc. in Pickering and the surrounding area. Why not come to the meet and make a week of it by staying on for Pickering's 1940s Wartime Weekend? The pilots will be chasing the Autumn Gold trophy again, and the task will be set by last year's winners.

Electric hook-ups, showers, toilets, washing-up point, and chemical waste disposal point are available. 10 per night, to be booked with us please and not with the site.

Also available to rent at High Grundon Farm are four lovely cottages and camping pods. All of the cottages will accommodate four persons (one double and one twin in each). Two of the cottages are on the ground floor only making them ideal for those with mobility problems, the other two cottages can actually be interlinked with an adjoining door on the ground floor if required for larger parties.

The cottages have been offered to us at a discounted rate for the weekend (Fri-Sun). Please email: to book the pods and the cottages...... and ensure that you book quickly so not to be disappointed.

Thornton-le-Dale is a beautiful little village with thatched cottages and the picturesque stream running alongside the road. Also home to good food pubs!

The event is close to lots of great attractions such as the North Yorks Moors Railway in Pickering in one direction, and the Yorkshire coast in the other, plus all points in between. You will be spoilt for choice!
