Lovely site convenient for visiting Scarborough, Filey and Whitby. Also near to Dalby Forest, Goathland, Pickering, Hole of Horcum and too many other interesting places to mention. We ended up extending our stay for several days because there was so much to do! Our dog loved the dog-walking area adjacent to the site, plenty of room for him to run about and explore. Not just a five minute walk this one, more half an hour at least! Facilities kept clean and tidy at all times, staff very helpful and friendly. Little café on-site handy and food from there very nice. Sunday lunch saved for us until we got back from cycling in Dalby Forest, a nice touch. Large playground for children, plenty of leaflets in Information hut if you need ideas on what to do. Some road noise can be heard, especially at busy times if you are pitched in Adults only area, not sure if it is as loud further back on site. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and could have quite happily stayed even longer!
Stayed 4 nights over the new year period. Despite the wet weather we had a great time on this site. On arrival we were given a warm welcome by the warden and his sons. After been shown to our pitch they offered to help us if we needed it. We stayed on a super pitch which had free wi fi and a 16 amp hook up.
We were close to reception & toilets/showers, which were immaculate whatever time of day we visited. Plenty of hot water in the large showers. The free use of hairdyers was a nice touch. Launderette with iron/ironing board next door to toilets. Due to the time of year, the site was pretty quiet but we walked around it and it really is lovely. The dog walk is super with the sheep etc not bothered at all by the dog.
There's a pub a few minutes walk from the site entrance and a good spar/garage 2 miles away. The warden and his family are so friendly and really go out of their way for you if you need their help. Really nice people. Overall it is a large well kept site & well situated for Scarborough and we will definitely return
Deciding on a break after the excesses of the Christmas holiday, we set off for St Helens after boxing day. A warm welcome awaited and there was a choice of pitches - all hard standing. The toilet block is maintained to a particularly high standard and the laundry facility was much appreciated. Nothing was too much trouble for the wardens. The site is convenient for the coast so Scarborough and Filey are within easy reach. An enjoyable stay which we hope to repeat this coming season.
Fantastic site, set in beautiful surroundings. We enjoyed a long weekend in late July and was so impressed we booked for another week as soon as we got home. Wardens were happy to help us when we arrived about 7. 30pm.
All the staff are friendly, helpful and courteous. The residents who have seasonal pitches are lovely and again very friendly and welcoming - especially to novice caravanners like us (thank you to Vera for the cups - which I forgot to pack).
Although we do not have a dog we took advantage of waling with our 3 yr old daughter around the site to see the animals and wear her out before bedtime. Our friends came up to visit us whilst there and although not usually keen on camping they said they would happily camp at St Helen's, as it is so lovely and peaceful and a stones throw from Scarborough, Dalby Forest, Robin Hood's Bay etc.
Clean shower and toilet facilities are the most important aspect of any campsite, and these did not disappoint. Cleaned daily and kept clean by all residents too.
We would highly recommend this site to anyone. Can't wait for our 3rd visit there.
Wonderful site, staff very friendly and helpful. Very clean toilet and shower blocks, staggered cleaning times so one is always open, lashings of hot water. Very big dog walk, has pens with sheep, pigs, and alpacas on the inside of the walk, dogs don't bother them at all!
Children's play area, the activity hut has shut down which disappointed the children in our group. Wifi on site but signal was none existent near adult only area, aerial is situated on top of toilet block but is not high enough to send out signal in to the lower areas of the site.
The site is well situated, for visiting whitby, Filey Bridlington Scarborough.
