 This site just gets better and better. Unrivalled sea views. A warm welcome and great facilities. A brand new kitchen this year with microwave, kettle and washing up sinks. It's just great and can't wait to go back here.

As you can imagine it does get very busy and you can't book so my advice is get there early on the day you are going.

 I took my six year old daughter here for one night as a mummy/daughter bonding session! I had telephoned in advance to check if I needed to book, and spoke to a really helpful man who gave me great directions. From the moment we arrived, Gill, the lady at the reception point was fantastic. She advised us on a great quiet spot, and was always around to offer information and an easy route down to the bay avoiding the main road. The toilets and showers were great, and there was also a separate field which lots of children were paying ball games on. As quite an over protective mum, I was really pleased that my daughter could meet other children in an enclosed environment. The campsite had a great atmosphere and I noticed a lot of musical instruments being played throughout the day, and respectfully quiet at night time. I would recommend this site for all ages as the view and the welcome was unbeatable.

 We spent 4 nights at Hooks House over the late may Bank Holiday Weekend. The site is excellent for people wishing to visit Whitby, it is about 5/10 minutes drive along the road and the campsite is on a Long hill over looking robin Hoods bay, which can be seen from the Campsite.

The campsite is clean and very well maintained, the wc's and the showers are in portacabins and are all very clean. The showers are free with a push button to operate, there are wash up basins, a kettle and a microwave in a little stone building and there are also 4 wash up basins outside.

Overall the campsite is very large and there is a lot of room for groups of people with children. The campsite is on a long gradual slope but there are many flat area's.

The cost for pitching your tent was 5.50 per person regardless of number of cars or tents. There were mats down so the Road down the site doesn't get bogged down when wet. Our only complaint was that it was too cold and windy but you can't blame the campsite for that. It is nice little walk about 20 minutes down the hill to a nice pub at the top of the slope to Robin Hoods bay.

If you choose to stay at this campsite you will have a lovely time but unless you go at the very heights of summer then take a jumper or two.

 This was our second visit to the site and even though it was a lot busier than our first visit in may we did not have any problems with the showers or toilets. Everybody was friendly and there was no late night noise. Gill and her staff were as friendly as they had been the time before and there if you needed them. We had trouble with our hook up as it wasnt long enough and the lent us an extension.

We had great weather and as we brought our dog we spent a lot of the time on the beach in Whitby. If you go to West Cliffe then you can take your dog on the beach there. There is a lovely beach at Sandsend that Gill told us about that dogs can go on. We had young children with us so we were given a pitch away from the road and had a great view over the bay.
Looking forward to our next visit next year.

 My wife, our 4 month old baby and I stayed at hooks house in September 2005, we found the site to be excellent, with good clean toilets and showers, helpful staff and very good views over the bay.

We paid 13 per night including electric hook-up for the 3 of us in our caravan. A short walk (15 mins) into Robin Hoods Bay is definitely worth it, the Victoria hotel serves fantastic evening meals and has Stella on tap. The site well located and is easy to find.

 Stunning views can not beat them. Near a road but is not busy and you dont notice it. Very steap field can imagine it being bad to get out in bad weather. Toilets where clean and the pot washing water was very hot. Very basic though porta cabin stlye.

Its a working farm so seeing the lambs realy impressed my 4 year old. Will go back but just a short stay. Just for the views its worth it. We thought it quite expensive though.

We have just come back from a long weekend break at hooks house - it was fantastic! It was our first ever camping trip and it was definiteley one to remember!!! The three of us and our dog turned up on the thursday lunchtime and Paul who greeted us and booked us in, was very helpful and showed us where all the facilities where and whereabouts we could pitch our tent. He was also quite helpful when our tent sprang a leak! Jill was always cleaning something whenever we saw her or walking round the site making sure everyone and everything was ok.
The loos are clean and the showers are lovely and warm (and free) and there is a barn with a sink and kettle as well as pot wash points which we found useful. We paid 4.50 per person per night and the dog and the car were free. There is an amazing view of the bay from the site and some lovely countryside walks down into the bay (with a nice fish and chip shop at the bottom of the hill near The Bay pub). Dogs are allowed on the beach at the bottom of the hill - this is the only one we could find though as most of Whitby doesn't allow dogs on the beach.
Just a short drive into Whitby, this site is ideally placed if you want the benefits of both the quiet countryside and buzzing seaside. We got used to hearing the sheep in the morning and miss them now we have come home! We will definitely be going back to this site - can't wait!

Well what a view, most stunning view over Robin Hoods Bay. This was the first time I had been camping for nearly 20 years. We use a caravan and use Caravan Club Sites mostly. Can not fairly compare to other sites as Club sites are in the main exceptional.
The Loos where clean, showers kept as clean as possible. The site was a gentle slope and drained well even after 3 days or rain.
Owner was very pleasant and polite. Would like to have seen soap and a towel in toilets and a mop bucket to clean mops for showers.
Nice foot path down to Robin Hoods Bay so you do not have to walk down the road side, much safer with children.
We will be going back, great time was had. Enjoyed back to basics of camping.

What can I say to express just how wonderful the views are from this excellent site? I don't think any words can describe just how stunning a location this campsite holds over Robin Hoods Bay and the Moors - it was breathtaking!

The site is situated on a working farm and the facilities are basic but clean and the showers offered plenty of hot water and were roomy.

We pitched our motorhome quite easily considering the site is very sloping but we did need to use our levelling blocks.
The night we stayed was a gloriously red hot evening and we lit a bbq and sat outside soaking up the atmosphere and the awesome views, as were most of our fellow campers and everyone just seemed as chilled out and relaxed as we were. The campsite was blissfully peaceful despite being next to a road but what it would be like in the middle of the school holidays and all the traffic that must pass by I cannot say.

The lady who owns the site is a very friendly and helpful lady and her campsite is a credit to her. We will definitely return to this site and can highly recommend it to anyone visitng North Yorkshire and it would be an ideal base from which to tour Yorkshire and the Moors etc - I do not think you will find anywhere with better views in the area.

So if you are looking for a peaceful campsite with superb views over Robin Hoods Bay and the Moors - then this is the campsite for you and I guarentee you will not be dissapointed.

Just returned from a great 5 days at this site. The staff are very helpful and always there to give you advice or help if you need it. The toilets and shower blocks are very clean. Loads of space for the kids to play and the view over Robin Hoods Bay is fantastic, just remember you are on a cliff top so it is quite windy at times. Will definitely be returning to this site.
