 Lovely located site between Robin Hoods Bay and Whitby.

Pre paid electric cards - very reasonable.

EHU pitch with decent space on a gentle slope; good drainage.

Excellent dog walking field.

Basic clean facilities.

 Enjoyed our stay here, spacious pitches with plenty of places to play with the kids.

Toilets are very clean, small dog walk on site but plenty of longer walks in the area

 Loved it, close to Robin Hoods bay and Whitby.

Lovely play areas for kiddies and well run site.

Was 2 adults age 15 and age 8, the 8 year old had a blast.

Reviewer: Croftyleeds 3 reviews from this member

 We wouldn't stay again and I'd suggest you look elsewhere.

Could be a good site if they spend some money, we stayed here for 3 nights and arrived in the rain. This site isn't great if it's raining at all, as the pitches get boggy and you either can't get your awning up as pegs just come out or your awning / van is full of the clay which comes off the pitch when it rains. The touring part of the site is slightly higher than the rest of the site and gets hit hard with winds.

Toilet block is a joke it's like going back to school in the 80's it's very old and made from cheap white wood. I've never known any toilet block to have the toilet roll holder behind you which isn't accessible easy. You don't use that much electric but each card is £1 not a lot but why charge I've never known it, only thing I can think is to get another £5 out of you.

Our friends were given pitch number 9 which is the smallest pitch of all and you get charged the same, if you take a van and awning you'll struggle to get parked next to your van as most people end up having to park on the road.

 This is a super campsite, small enough to not get lost but very good facilities, really enjoyed it.

Lots to do in the area,

The cinder track from Scarborough to Whitby is a lovely place for a bike ride.

We will definitely return here.

 Arrived at yorkhouse for 2 nights in their pods. When we got there they were clean and easily accessible

Very nice site for our first time in pods

Toilets clean and tidy, only a short walk no complaints though.

Only downside was we were not allowed to check in before 1 oíclock which was disappointing as all the pods were empty, we asked twice but were told no

And on web site it said lovely views, unfortunately all we could see were trees in front of us, not as described.

 Disappointed with the showers - not even 20 seconds of water before you have to push the button again. Same with taps and hand dryer. No hair dryer.

In 2 nights we went through £10 electric - first time ever that we had to pay for it separately. And we were out all day! We contacted the site manager and was told we would have to wait until morning

The nearest pub looked like it was only open until 9pm but donít be fooled that just itís food times. Hare n hounds hawkser.

 The site itself was good and very clean. Nice and quiet but we were in the very end field. This meant a long walk to the amenities building for washing up, shower, toilets etc. They are building a new hut in the end field so once that is complete it will be much better.

We thought that there was a pub/ restaurant on site but this wasnít open the whole time we were there. It wasnít owned by the site but still, it would have been good to know it wasnít open. The Hare and Hounds 5 mins walk away served amazing food but try and book a table! Itís busy!

The site is handy for Whitby and Scarborough and is on the main bus route so you donít have to drive and park.

The people in the shop were helpful and friendly.

 Visited for many years and what a change this yr. The old manager has left and the new one is very abrupt obnoxious and downright rude.

Toilets constantly dirty the bowls look like they could do with a scrub or some bleach down the men's. The urinals are constantly flooded and heard the men are wading through wee to use the toilets absolutely disgusting.

There is a lot of work still going on like last year so the site is noisy.

We won't be back, this place has gone downhill fast which is a shame this used to be a lovely site

Reviewer: Spark18a 7 reviews from this member

 A well situated site near to an excellent pub and an hours walk to Whitby. We had tp pay upfront on the same day, not the usual arrangement in my experience (well not in Feb).

The toilet shower block is very clean but the showers are on a timed tap (push and water flows) I tried 3 of the showers and the best I could find was 4 seconds - yep 4 whole seconds between pushes (unbelievable) the wash basins were only 2 seconds. ! One other point the really indicates the owners have never bothered to try out the facilities is the loo roll holders in the WCs, they are mounted on the rear wall, now I don't know of anyone who has hands in the back on the neck?! The facilities were not too busy (in Feb) but as there are only 3 WCs I would not visit in peak periods. The bins were overflowing on our visit and rubbish was blown out due to the high winds on such an exposed site.

I would call again if they made some improvements.
