Current Opening Hours & War Weekend Park & Ride

Cedarbarn Railway in Wartime Park & Ride Information
U P D A T E ....Please be aware this is an agricultural field and after the recent rain it is very wet. We will not be able to take anything larger than a car and you park at your own risk.

Pickering Official Park & Ride: Cedarbarn Farm Shop, YO18 7JX (Saturday & Sunday only)
Signs will be in place to direct traffic from the A64, A169 & A170 towards the official Park & Ride at Cedarbarn, please follow the signs which are in place to guide visitors to the designated parking areas.

All day parking at the Cedarbarn and return Mini Bus to Pickering Town centre is £2.50 per person (Under 10s go free).
Mini buses run from 8am – 6pm (last return from Pickering) Cedarbarn Gates will be opened at 7.45am for the first journey so please do not arrive before this time.
The P&R will drop off at Pocklington Carpets, Eastgate and collect on the opposite side of the road outside Select Convenience (Bus Stop) for return to your car.

There is NO space for coaches to park at Cedarbarn, we suggest dropping your passengers off at Eastgate Square Car Park and parking your coach there.
Cedarbarn also have space for Motorhomes overnight parking (Update – Too wet I am afraid)
Please see this news page or Cedarbarn Facebook for any last minute changes!

Just a few little tips ...
It is an agricultural field so to protect those beautiful 1940's shoes after you have parked your car, it may be a good idea to bring either a change of shoes or plastic bags & rubber bands to cover them.

Arrive in good time to avoid queuing at the peak times (10-12 noon) There will be Bacon Sarnies and Hot drinks available if you have to skip breakfast

The lovely guys from Pickering Rotary would be grateful if you could have the correct change on arrival, to pay for your P&R tickets, this should help keep the traffic flowing and avoid any back up on to the main road. (Prices below. You will need your ticket for the bus)

The management of Cedarbarn cannot accept responsibility for any injury, loss or damage of property or vehicles in the car park (P&R)

Many thanks and look forward to seeing you.
Mandy Avison

Cedarbarn Farm Shop and Café

Welcome to Cedarbarn, where we're passionate about growing, cooking and eating fabulous food!

Our award-winning farm shop and café is food heaven… but our produce doesn't just taste great; we're proud to say it's locally sourced as far as possible, with much of it grown on our own farm. Nearly everything we sell or serve has been produced right here in beautiful North Yorkshire, whether it's our own fresh meat, Scarborough fish, seasonal fruit and vegetables or delicious deli products.

Cedarbarn is run by husband and wife team Karl and Mandy Avison, along with General Manager Alison Riley, who has grown up in the business, her father was a well known greengrocer on Leeds Market for many years. Karl’s family has farmed in the Thornton Dale area for over a century, and Mandy has years of experience in hotels and catering, so they make the perfect team! The business is a real family affair, with Karl and Mandy’s daughter Chloe managing the shop and their niece and nephew working in the business, even Karl’s mum lends a hand in the kitchen.

Our aim at Cedarbarn is very simple; to bring you top-quality, healthy, fresh food with impeccable provenance and as few food miles as possible. We're inspired by our love of farming and also care deeply about our impact on the environment - so all our operations are as eco-friendly as possible.
