 Yet again we spent a blissful 11 days on this site. What can I say outstanding, breath taking views, spotless and the family who own it are fantastic. Will be going again. Lovely walks and a short drive into whitby and the moors. All facilities on site are spotless whatever time of day

 Lovely campsite, peaceful and fantastic views from the top over the bay. 6.50 per person per night and as others say it is on quite a slope so you want to pitch near the top if the weather is bad!

It may sound weird but the grass is left slightly longer where the tents pitch which makes for a comfy floor!

Showers, toilets and kitchen facilities are all good with a fridge and kettle available.

Close to the shops and pubs of Robin Hood's Bay.

Reviewer: Joolsp 13 reviews from this member

 This site is almost perfection! A sloping field with amazing views down to Robin Hoods Bay village and the bay itself. Friendly owners (fitted our two-man tent in even though claiming to be full). Mainly tents due to the slope although there are spots for tourers and vans around the top and on flatter spots. Good clean facilities (occasional queues on a very busy sunny weekend at the end of the half term).

Fridge, freezer and electric kettle available in the wash-up area.

We can highly recommend the site and we will be back asap.

Can only book for full weeks though so if the forecast is good and you just want a weekend, get there early!

On the area generally, 10 minutes walk down to the top of the village (15 mins back up!) where there is a general stores and large pub (which unfortunately has white wine only on draught. How difficult is it these days to serve a decent glass of wine?)

Another 5 mins down into the village brings you to more pubs, restaurants and (mainly gift) shops. Not much open in the evening for eating except at the pubs (unimaginative and not that good).

Brilliant cycle path to Whitby, 7 miles away and coastal walks fantastic.

 Go to this site for the location but stay for the great views. Site is very clean and the facilities

Such as toilets and showers are busy but never had to wait more than a few minutes so more than acceptable for a busy school holiday. Site is lively during the day but lovely and peaceful on a night and the owners regularly patrol the site and are very helpful. Only niggle is the incline most pitches are on but can't blame the owners for landscape. Recommended.

 We have just returned from a good three night stay at Hooks House campsite.

On arrival we were greeted by the owner who was very friendly and helpful. We were allowed to chose our own pitch on the field, which is on a slight incline. From everywhere on the site there is a great view of Robin Hood's Bay and at the bottom there is a footpath which leads down to the town (takes about 10 minutes).

All of the facilities were spotless and evidently well looked after. The water was always hot and there was no extra charge for this or showers. There was also a kettle, fridge/freezer and microwave available for visitors - also free of charge.

Overall a very nice stay and would recommend this site to anyone - will definitely be returning!

Reviewer: Team Monkey 19 reviews from this member

 Had a very pleasant stay at Hooks House Farm in May 09. Owners were friendly and very helpful in letting us choose our pitch and then towing caravan to desired spot, raising and levelling it also, in order to save us time and effort which we thought a nice touch. Helped us off the pitch when we left too.

Other plus point, no extra charge for use of showers/hot water and they also provided kettle and fridge for communal use too. Nice touch.

Their pricing we thought competitive and very fair. Priced per person, for the 2 of us (in caravan) cost 15 per night for electric hookup pitch. Awnings where no extra charge. No deadline for getting back on site at night either.

Views from site were magnificent overlooking Bay! In close proximity for an evening stroll to beach.

Only one very small issue I wish to raise was that the middle shower cubicle (female block) had plastic wedges nailed to the window to prevent it from ever being closed! Previously I had used the end shower cubicle which didn't have this and was able to just open window to let steam out after I had finished showering, which is how I would prefer to shower! Didnt like that I had to shower one night with the window open, getting cold! That is the ONLY small point and just hope that the owners read and do something about this so that others don't have to endure drafty showers in the future!

 Very nice location for this superbly run site. Stunning views.

All facilities were spotless even though it was a very busy bank holiday weekend. Nice to have free showers and ice freezing included in the very reasonable price ( 6 per person). Could have done with a little bit more room on the pitch to fit the Bear lake on though. Hats off to the excellent family who run it

 Hooks House is a fabulous site and always has been. Wonderful owners, fabulous facilities, beautiful views, very reasonable ~(12 per night for myself and my 2 daughters).

One problem. Only 2 showers each. It just isn't enough. So if you are willing to wait until lunchtime for your shower, or you are visiting in non-bank holiday periods, you cannot beat this site.

There are plenty of hookups available, but I suggest you prebook if you want it. Of the people lucky enough to be in possession of a power source I spoke to, all of them had booked in January.

Reviewer: Pollymorph 2 reviews from this member

 I found the camp site on here, read the reviews and thought I'd give it a go. I went on my own and the owner was fantastic. She showed me to a spot where she said I would be safe from the cars and near to the amenities.
The shower block was lovely and clean and the other facilities including a kettle and microwave nearby. There is also a good washing up area and full recycling facilities. The whole site had a very friendly atmosphere that made my whole weekend worthwhile. All this for only 6 a night. The site got full very quickly but it retained it's homely feel.

The place itself is a paradise if you like walking, but the hill coming back is a killer. However, it is worth going down to the beach to see the rockpools there. The visitor centre in the lifeboat house is very good and interactive. I went on my own, but I never felt left out, nearly everyone you walked past said 'hello'.

I adored it here, a lovely place and a very friendly site. So much so, I'm planning on going back in a couple of weeks!

Reviewer: Braggs 1 review from this member

 Nice campsite with very pleasant owners. Our torch batteries ran out, we went and knocked on the door at about 10pm and they lent us a torch with spare batteries!

The weather wasn't too good (basically in a cloud) so didn't see the view. Got a reasonably flat pitch. Not too many screaming children. Nice toilets (didn't use the showers). Also had a kettle - very nice. Very reasonably price (6 per adult camping).

Close to Robin Hood's bay, the path isn't very perilous although again couldn't see it in the weather conditions when we tried to get to the pub at night. Lovely fish and chips.
