Great little site friendly helpful owners, walk into whitby spot the seals on the esk, lovely place lots of nice countryside to wald or drive.

Bit of a steep approach to site from both sides of ruswarp, but easy to find and turn into located on river esk.

Great little 5 van site with 16 amp electric. No toilets or showers (use your own facilities), waste disposal and water points are easy access. Owner was great and very helpful with local knowledge. All in all a great site with easy access into whitby

We liked this site because of it's easy access to Whitby. Only a mile walk along the riverside where we saw a seal sunbathing. Thought our eyes were playing tricks. Basic site with no motorhome grey waste disposal and we had to use watering can from riverside tap to fill water tank as the other tap was next to chemical disposal. To access the site you have to stop on road to open and latch back gate so best to arrive/leave in daylight. Train and taxi both handy for Whitby so walking busy road not necessary.

Stayed for 9 nights during folk week. This is a lovely little site and handy for motorhomers as there is a half hourly bus into Whitby during the day or use the train - both within half a mile and near a pub with excellent beer. The walk along the track is about twenty minutes into Whitby. The site is adequately sized for 5 vans or motorhomes with two on one side of a central roadway and three on the other. Electrics are full 16 amp. Pitches are not marked but common sense is used. Access is good. Surface is all stoned (but not the little ones that tread in!). There isn't much sun until midday at least due to the trees. The central roadway gives access to some statics - up a slope behind trees and can't be seen and the people we met from them were very friendly. There are no locked barriers but the locality is very quiet and we were not concerned about security. The owner is very helpful and a phone call away. Note earlier comments about the stream at the side - steep drop, unfenced and tidal.

This is a lovely site, quiet and tidy. Small site with electric hook up and water and waste disposal. Considering we arrived in mist and had a night of torrential rain and the beck at the side was in full flow with a very fast flowing river across the road, the hard standing was dry and firm, good drainage. Loads of space for our 30 foot motorhome. A lovely walk on the cinder path to Whitby and you could cycle to Robin Hoods Bay and Scarborough if you felt the need. The walk over the old railway track and seeing the view over to the Abbey was spectacular. Just take care on the walk up the road to the cinder path the road is a short cut for some rather fast drivers.

Recommend the north yorks railway steam train trips, the steam trains can also be seen from the site.

Can't wait to go back again.

We (2 seniors) had booked this site for a 3 week period. Our son, his wife and our 5yr old granddaughter were joining us with a tent for the Bank Holiday. It has a perfect location as it is a 30 minute walk alongside the railway track and the river Esk, which is lovely down into Whitby. Buses also run about every half hour. The village of Ruswarp, pronounced Rusup has a very good butcher, a pub which serves food and a well stocked shop.

The small site is surrounded on three sides by beautiful trees and the owners have planted a beech hedge along the road side boundary. When you drive on at first it feels a bit like a gravel car park! It had electrics and waste disposal and water within easy reach.

However, the site is a nightmare for parents of small children who are adventurous and who like to wander. You cannot open the caravan door and let children just go. A stream runs through the site and after rain this became a raging torrent. It is down an very high and very steep bank with no fence. The stream then runs directly into the fast running Esk which is just across the road.

The owners are really lovely and didn't charge my son and family because they were using our facilities. We are lucky that our Granddaughter just wanted to be in our caravan and not wander. We had a lovely holiday but definitely not a site for Children!
