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 supported living 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.

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.
