Date of Visit: August 2009 Unit:  Tent
Reviewer: Phil_s 2 reviews from this member

 My wife and I visited this site last year intending to stay for a few nights, as her first camping experience. The weather was awful and my old tent that hadn't been used for a long time couldn't take it and leaked. However we had liked this site so much we vowed to return. Which we did this summer armed with a better equipment and thankfully the weather was really on our side.

The site promises amazing views and this is what your get, the field slopes downhill towards the bay with pitches for tourers some having electric hookup around the top and edges and tents in the middle down to the front. I cant imagine that any of they pitches have a different view from mine which was a perfect view across the bay and out to sea, rolling hills and dramatic cliffs included.

The facilities at the site are great the toilets and showers are spotless all day, I did see queues for the showers but never had to myself as I tend to be up early or went in the afternoon. There's also a block of individual washrooms to use. There's sockets for hairdryers etc.

There's a block where you can wash pots with three sinks which also has a couple of freezers and a fridge, kettle for a brew and microwave.

On the area, there's a short walk down to the bay which has a number of shops selling bits and bobs of fossils, jet and the usual seaside stuff, a few pubs with good beer and what looked like nice food, there's a chippy which is does great fish and chips. The beach is lovely with lots of rock pools and a good long walk up and down. Great for kids.

Whitby is a short car ride away or a few hours walk down the Cleveland way which is a lovely scenic trip and the north yorks moors are nearby as well. There's also access to one of the national cycle trails which I believe heads toward Scarborough.

All in all I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this site, the views are excellent, the facilities are great and the area is lovely. We will definitely be back I should think.

Reviewer: Wooptedoo 3 reviews from this member

 This site has both positives and negatives, on the positive the view is one of the best I have ever seen, and the staff were fantastic, to have your caravan towed into position and levelled up was amazing. There is a field for the kids to play in and a lovely walk for the dog. On the down side, it is next to the road, which although it is not too busy, early morning traffic can be heard whilst trying to sleep, as can the sheep in the next field, which some would say is part of the charm. The facilities, although they were very clean, they were sparse and in need of modernisation, two toilets and two showers for the men and likewise for the women, is just not enough, considering there was around 200 people on site, and as a result, there was queuing and at times toilet paper and hand towels and soap run short,, despite a gallant effort by staff to keep up with things. Overall a lovely spot and with some modernisation would make one of the best.

 Visited at a busy time of year but never felt crowded out. When we arrived our caravan was quietly and competently taken over by George(?) and his son who positioned, levelled and secured it on a sloping pitch, never has our van felt so steady, no bounces at all!

The views from the site over Robin Hoods Bay are spectacular,even at night we had to stop and gape at the beauty of the moon shining on the water, and there is a good footpath down to the village and beach area.

The family who own Hooks House are lovely, Can't speak highly enough of their friendliness and helpfulness, they keep the facilities in very good order and they are regularly inspected by Gill to ensure supplies (loo paper etc) don't run out. If I have any criticism at all, and it really didn't affect our hols to any great effect, it would be that 1 more shower for each sex would be appreciated.

It was great to watch youngsters of all ages- who had probably only got to know each other on site- playing cricket on the adjoining field in the evenings, however,at no time was there ever any rowdiness or noise after 'lights out'time on site.

My husband and I have had our faith in family activities and unity renewed since staying at Hooks House and can't wait till we have grandchildren old enough to come with us and join in.

Will we go back?.Can't wait.

 Just returned to camping after 25 years and we could not have chosen a better site.

The site appears to be run entirely by family members and they are all great people with Gill and Paul running front of house in a very friendly professional manner.

Gently sloping site well laid out with great views of Robin Hoods bay from all pitches

Very close to The Cleveland Way so good walks.

Facilities ltd in number but not in quality very very clean.

Robinn Hoods Bay was quaint and beautiful with a very lively music scene.

We will be going again this year.

 Excellent site I would fully recommend to anyone, owner very helpful and friendly. Only drawback is site is sloping so pitch with care.Toilet block was always spotless as were the showers.A new addition this year is the private washrooms great if long queues for showers.Views are fantastic. Although previous reviews state some noise I didn't find it so, very quiet Will go again. Would give more than 10/10 but that's the limit.

Reviewer: Wimps 5 reviews from this member

 Brilliant site. On arriving we were immediately put in our place - that is with the aid of 2 blokes with chocks levelling us up.

Fantastic view over the bay. It did get very windy some nights but great for our little lad's kite flying !

Walk through fields / cycle track all way into heart of RHB was great for dog & kids. Hardly used the car all week.

Families and couples would enjoy this site - quiet with everyone friendly + well behaved.

Facilities are good, washrooms & toilets spotless. Only downside if there is one is lack of showers but we went late aft/early evening without needing to queue.

RHB is very quaint, no commercial rubbish / amusements but everything you need - pubs, top fish + chips, rock pools + good dog-friendly beach.

Highly recommended, will be returning.

Reviewer: Tranmere99 4 reviews from this member

 Stayed at this lovely site for three nights and would quite happily have stayed longer if we could. The views are stunning and although the site slopes as other reviewers mention there are plenty of flat pitches available.

Facilities are excellent and the owners work tirelessly to keep everywhere spotless. Showers were hot and there are plenty of electric points available for hair drying and for charging mobiles etc. The owner offered to charge our Sat Nav overnight each night for us, which as the cigarette lighter in our car is broken, was a huge help. A fridge and freezer is readily available as is a microwave and a kettle, and there is no charge for freezing ice blocks etc.

Surrounding area is beautiful with many lovely walks. Robin Hoods Bay is a short walk down a footpath and has three pubs (the best of which is Ye Dolphin), some interesting shops and a pebbly beach. Nearest food shops and banks are 4 miles away in Whitby.

Would definitely stay here again and would recommend this site to anyone.

 Views of Robin Hood's Bay from all pitches is what we were told and I cannot disagree. It's so nice to wake up, open the tent and look out over the field to the coast.

Friendly people and good facilities. I didn't take children but many people did and no one had any problems.

Definitely one to re-visit.

A good base if wanting to visit Whitby or the Moors.

Reviewer: M1TCH 1 review from this member

 Stayed for a long weekend at Hooks house farm in June and had a wonderful time. The toilet and showers were very clean and the use of a electric kettle and fridge came in very handy.

The owners are very friendly and go out there way to help you where they can. But the most impressive thing is the view across Robin hoods bay. I will definitely be returning very soon.

Reviewer: Redsue 9 reviews from this member

 Just like to say how great this site is. The views are fantastic, but do make sure you get a plot whereby someone cant come along and put up a large/high gazeebo in front of you. They turned up on our second night and ruined our perfect view.

The facilities are much better than the reviews suggest. Even though some of them are old and look like an old porta cabin they certainly don't feel old inside. They are spotless and have everything you need except for hairdryers but there is a socket for you to plug your own equipment in, and its all free. No extra charges for anything and at 6.50 per person per night you cant beat it. Cant wait to go back. Wonderful site and owners who were very friendly and helpful.
