Stayed here over the May bank holiday weekend. Read reviews on here prior to booking and sounded like a nice site to visit with children. We were not disappointed either, the family field was ideal with marked pitches, which allowed plenty of room between tents, and a large play field in front of the tents for ball games, kite flying etc. There was a large chidrens play park which stretched across the far side of the field, so you could see the children playing from the tent. There is only 1 row of tents, so you would need to book in advance, but this left plenty of room and wasn't crowded like some sites I have visited. The little shop and cafe were very nice and there was a BBQ on the Sunday over the bank holiday but we had gone out for the day so didn't attend as Scarborough beach was only a short drive away and the sun was shining. There was a nice large dog walking area on the site which we walked through (even though we don't have a dog!) where we saw donkeys, pigs and alpaca. The donkeys were really friendly and came over for a stroke. The shower and toilet block always seemed to be clean, and each closed at different times for cleaning. I didn't have to wait for a shower, but could imagine having too if you went at a busy time as there were only a small amount for the size of the site. These are however free, warm and plenty of room when getting dried. There are a few local pubs, although we didn't visit any, but within walking distance. I only noticed when we were leaving that in the information hut near reception there was a small fridge and freezer for guest use, so you can leave ice packs or food if you are very trusting! The site is well maintained, and having camped at a lot of sites I think this has to be one of my favourites! The children also loved the play area and large field, so if they are happy, so am I. There were some wooden huts for those that do not want to put tents up, but be aware that no dogs are allowed on the family field, so tents and huts in this area are dog free. There is another camping field and other wooden huts where dogs are permitted, so ask when booking if you are bringing your dog along. We also visited Peasholme park in Scarborough which had a mini golf and boating lake, it was a lovely trip out.

Our only negative was the noise coming from a large group of people occupying the 2 wooden huts on the family field, who insisted on being very loud into the early hours, this was children as well as adults. They also had a pup tent so quite a large group. This went on until after 2. 00am, so quite a lot of angry campers the following morning. I didn't see anybody patrolling at night which some sites have to ask campers to keep the noise down after a certain time, although I did see one of the staff drive over the following morning for a word. Night 2 was a lot better and much quieter.

All in all a great site and we have now booked again for July, so heres hoping the weather holds out :-)

We visited this park twice in may 2014 what a lovely site very quite and loads to do near by. We were reviewing the reviews and the review from a lady in April re her dog being attacked by a boxer dog with irresponsible onwers. We were sited next to this couple with there boxer dog yes the dog barked at other dogs but what a soft dog, and never was the dog left alone. Back to the review we will be going back again. We went Bank Holiday Weekend the site had a barbecue and a band playing really enjoyed our stay. I review these site as for information and guide.

Brilliant site. Facilities very clean and spotless. Cafe great with food cooked to order. Downe hotel, the food was excellent. Not sure we will be back, sadly, due to irresponsible owner of boxer dog which attacked our yorkie and then claimed it was 'just being friendly'! REALLY! Recommend even so!

What a fantastic site, we regularly use CC sites and this is the equal of their best sites. Spotlessly clean fantastic facilities, best dog walk we have ever seen and so close to so many things by foot, public transport or car.

Booking in was quick and easy, everything explained and shown to our pitch nothing was too much trouble. Fantastic serviced pitch close to reception so a little road noise from A170 but not much. Cafe and shop well stocked and toilets/showers sparkled.

Good walks to nearby villages and pub all on footpaths/quiet roads, quite busy but no noise, bags of space and a great play area. The dog walk is huge and had Llamas, sheep and pigs in adjacent fields. Not forgetting the donkeys.

Cheaper for a fully serviced pitch than West Ayton CC site was for a normal pitch so good value for us.

We will be back

We camped in a pod for 4 people. It was a bit tight will all kit in but if you get electrics it does come with lights and heating. The pod and the campsite is a spotlessly clean with the toilet/shower blocks excellent with free showers. We used the cafe on a couple of day for breakfast and it was always good value and good food. There is a local pub just a short walk from the campsite and this was kid friendly with good food. The is an excellent campsite and only a 10 min drive to Scarborough.

This is the 2nd time we have visited St Helen's this year. The site always looks full due to a lot of tourer vans which are there all year round as a static caravan.

As in June, it was a nice quiet week, even with the Pickering War Weekend being on the start of our holiday.

We chose an all service pitch, but really this is not necessary, the hard standings were just as good except for the waste water drain and tap.

You will need rock pegs if on a hard standing pitch, but there is also grass pitches to be had. It rained most of the time we were there but the pitch we had was well drained, friends of ours did get a little water collecting on their pitch at some point, but not too bad.

If you are a senior they also offer a weeks fee for £87.50 & £97.50 depending on when you go, the fully services pitches will be a little more than this but you still get a discount. They charge £2.70 per day for awnings which In think is a little dear, but when added to the discount fee you can go for just over £100 which is not too bad these days, the caravan club sites are more than this.

There is a section for adults only, but these are nr reception and nearer to the A170 main through road from Pickering to Scarborough so you will get road noise at peak times, that's why we like to go to the back of the site further away from the road.

The showers blocks are very clean, there is free hot water, and 1 free hair dryer in cubicle 1 of 2 in the block near us, plenty of sinks and toilets. There is at least 3 toilet/shower blocks around the site, and cleaned every day.

There is also a small café on site but at this time of year closes in early November.

There is a large play area for children with 2 climbing frames and a large grass area for ball games etc.

There is a lovely dog walk, along the way you pass Alpaca's, Sheep, Pigs, & Donkeys, great for the children to see. The dog walk leads you into the small village of Hutton Buscel, but there is no shops, pubs etc there but a nice place just to wander around.

We caught the bus from Hutton Buscel to go to Scarborough & another day to Helmsley, but we found out later there is a bus stop outside the park on the A170 itself.

We really like this site, especially the pitch we had on our last visit as it was clearly marked out from the one next door with a small hedge to separate. The grass pitches are just a number plate on the grass, would be better if these too were clearly marked out, this is just my personal opinion, so that your neighbours know where their pitch ends and yours start.

Would I go back again, yes I would, what's not to like, you are so handy for Scarborough, Whitby, the North Yorks Moors and many more lovely places of interest, roll on 2014, we will be back.
