Botton Village

Get to know us

Botton Village and its farms nestle in Danby Dale in the beautiful North York Moors National Park. It’s not far from the towns of Middlesbrough in one direction and Whitby, Scarborough and the Yorkshire coast in the other.

Founded in 1955 Botton Village was the first Camphill centre to offer supported living opportunities to adults with learning disabilities and other special needs.

Botton Village is a place where people develop skills, it’s a thriving community in a stunning location with it’s own Village Hall, the Joan of Arc Hall, which provides a venue for performances and gatherings. There’s a Village Store, cafe and a Post Office too.

We offer workshops and day opportunities which provide the opportunity not only for people to contribute to their community but also gain experience and develop friendships.

Farms and gardens

Camphill Village Trust is a charity with its roots in horticulture and agriculture. We support adults to work in our farms and gardens across many of our communities.

We support people on our land-based enterprises through an initiative called Social Farming. Social Farming is recognised worldwide. The concept is very simple: to combine agricultural and horticultural production with health and social services provided to people with different types of disabilities.

Botton Village Store and Post Office

Located in the heart of Botton Village, with ample free parking on site. Shop for your groceries, Botton Village produce, gifts and daily essentials in our Village Store, we’re open 6 days per week.
