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 was the first Camphill centre to offer opportunities to adults with learning disabilities and other special needs.

More than 30 houses make up Botton Village. Our village provides a high standard of housing with sturdy farmhouses, purpose-built accommodation, modern barn conversions and houses designed, offering a comfortable and homely atmosphere.

We have our own Village Hall, the Joan of Arc Hall, which provides a high-quality venue for performances, shows and gatherings. There’s a church, a village store, a coffee bar and a post office too.

We have a wide range of workshops and other social-cultural and training activities which provide the opportunity not only for people to contribute to their community but also the potential to develop skills, gain valuable hands-on experience and feel valued and appreciated.

Social Farm

Social farming fits naturally into the Camphill tradition and spirit of active participation.

The people we support are able to get involved in all aspects of farming, from looking after the animals, to sowing and weeding the vegetables, to harvesting them. The health benefits are great too. Robin Asquith, our Social Farm Manager chats about the great work they do.
