First time at this site as our usual site as fully booked, will definitely return to this site again, absolutely loved it!

Level pitches, plenty of room and good shower blocks that were always clean despite it being a busy bank holiday weekend!

Good location and good bar on site.

Just returned from here and must say very disappointed.

1/ if your paying 31. 50 a night wouldn't expect to pay for electric as well

2/ showers pre paid on token you don't even get the water running all the time keep having to press a button

3/ toilet blocks absolutely freezing you get dressed very quickly in this place. The fan on the ceiling I think that they was last cleaned in 2000 because full of mould have they ever been cleaned I ask myself

4/ Not a lot of space between the vans

5/ cant believe how much they charge for extra guests or cars what's the difference if you have 4 staying instead of 2 after all we are paying for the water the electric and what's Jacobs mount providing nothing extra

Even have to pay vat on dogs ?

Which when you add the bill up they found it of to the nearest so they gain yet again.

This is a rip off site you might as well go on the club sites at these pricers

The one good thing nice meals in the very warm club house only place on the site what is warm I wonder why that is ??

Our first visit mid August, tidy clean site although we found it a little too regimental for our liking. Everyone is in rows, not an awful lot of space in between, but adequate. What immediately hits you as you drive onto the site is the number of signs telling you to do or more often NOT DO something, we also found this carried over into other areas such as the toilet facilities etc. Coupled with the small guy in the shop/reception, coming across as a bit rude and aggressive and like a sergeant major when he spoke sometimes, it just sort of felt like we were coming to a boot camp for the weekend - not a holiday camp - just our two families first impressions.

Plenty of hot water in the showers, although you have to pay extra for tokens.

Campsite is in a good location to visit surrounding area, we didn't use the Pub on the site so cannot comment on that.

This was our 5th stay at Jacobs Mount, we like the location, its just outside Scarborough but not too far away. The pitches are a good size, fresh water and waste disposal at the pitch. We do have bother with the electric tripping at certain times of the day, especially our kettle first thing in the morning - we use a normal household kettle so can't expect anything else! You need to pay for an electricity card but you are only paying for what you use and as the pitch price is very reasonable you can't complain (we used just over 5. 00 in eight days). The toilets and showers are warm and clean but could do with being renovated, having to keep pressing the shower to get water can be quite annoying when trying to get washed and any time I try the hairdryer it never works! The showers are operated by tokens which can be bought from a machine outside reception tokens cost 40 pence each or three for 1. 00. There is a pub on site (closed on a Wednesday) which serves food in the evening, the meals are excellent, cooked as you order them so there is sometimes a bit of a wait especially when they are busy but it is well worth the wait. There's also bingo and other entertainment at the weekends as well. Staff are always friendly and helpful. Overall we think this is an excellent site and like other sites there is good and bad but this is a site we enjoy returning to each year and hopefully we'll be back next year.

Just returned from a weeks stay at Jacobs Mount. Didn't know what to expect as it was our first visit. Was a little apprehensive as there was some confusion when I rang to request a pitch either next to or near my father in law who had already booked for the same week. Was told that the pitches are allocated upon booking and wouldn't be possible to change our pitch. When we arrived at our pitch we discovered the one next to us was empty and remained so for the whole week. Never mind we were on the next row along anyway so no massive hardship.

The site is well laid out and pitches are plenty big enough. The rules on parking are not stuck to by everyone which is a bit unfair( no parking on grass alongside awning which makes your car too close to the next caravan).

You Have to pay a deposit for a security barrier key fob and a card for electric which is refunded when you leave, any electricity not used is also refunded.

The shower blocks are reasonably clean and warm, the showers are on a token meter which is outside the cubicle and gives you 8 minutes per token (strip off first then dash back in) The water is on a push tap which you constantly have to hold in ( a bit daft considering you have paid for the water and it cuts off at the end of the timer).

The club on site serves food but we had to wait an hour on Saturday evening. The quality is reasonable and price not too bad. Beer prices are a bit steep. The club doesn't open Wednesdays and the entertainment was a little below average on Saturday night. He managed about 3 songs then his equipment packed in and we were all left waiting in silence whilst he tried to fix it.

Be aware around the shower block as it is a kids hang out and becomes a race track for bikes and scooters which are abandoned all over the place despite signs saying no scooters or bikes allowed in the area.

The security barrier is locked down at 11 pm and you are told to park your car near the shower block on the road after this time. What we weren't told was that you cant get out with your car before 8 am.

There are no buses running past or near to the site and it is a pleasant half hour walk into Scarborough (taxi back as it is uphill ) 7 from top of town to site so not too bad.

All in all it is a nice site let down by silly rules, poor showers and bar entertainment. Price wise for the bank holiday week it was fair. Bus service is a let down but ok if you don't mind taxi or taking car. Site is not signposted anywhere in or around Scarborough but sat nav will get you there.

Did we enjoy our holiday? Yes because its what we made it

Would we return ? Probably not, usually stay at Flower of May which is an all round better site even if its further out of town.

Better sites all over Scarborough, shop around and do your homework. It may be for you, but not for us.

We stayed here as we thought it convenient for Scarborough (approx 3 miles away). On ringing, we were told they could 'fit us in', and that dogs were welcome. The pitch fee being 16 per night. Oh good we thought, sounded like an excellent deal.

How wrong we were! We had to pay a further 5 for our 2 dogs, and the electric was charged on a meter. If you want a shower, then that's extra too! We started to wonder if we would be running up a massive bill by the end of our stay.

No wonder there were only 3 other tourers on site; the other pitches were seasonal and deserted apart from one caravan that had 3 vehicles with including a builder's van.

Glad we only stayed the one night, and won't be returning.
