Reviewer: Llesley ann 19 reviews from this member

Stayed for 2 nights at a great price 26.00 including EHU, our pitch was near the complex.

The shower/toilet block was a good walk away there where porta cabins used for the showers and toilet which look clean, I paid 5 pound for a key to be able to use the porta cabins they where open all the time no use for the key the 5 pound was returned when returned key back.

Inside the main complex is a swimming pool which is small, a arcade, and the family bar the family bar serves meals all day. Also on site is a shop which was well stocked up, a launderette next door to the shop and 2 children's parks 1 near the complex and 1 on one of the touring fields, there is also a sports area where football was played the sports area as a large fence all the way round but that dint stop the ball almost hitting my caravan when the teenagers started playing, overall I would give this site 7/10 and would return but I would not stay near the sports area.

Just arrived back from our first trip with the caravan, decided on this site because it was only 34.40 for 3 nights, and not to far for my husband to pull the van for the first time.

Good points about the site.

Plenty of space, well kept grass

Very clean shower blocks/toilets

Excellent kids playing park( daughter loved it, that's because it was about the only thing for her to do)

Small shop and laundrette on site

Bad points.

Entertainment not very good,only smallish room (5.70 for 2 pints of larger)

Swimming pool very small

Amusement's very small area

Withernsea town I think must have been closed. Lol

Overall for are first trip on the road, we had a good experience even though the wind howled and the rain through it down, we haven't been put off.

Very nice site but not for us with a 11 year old daughter who needs entertaining all the time.

We managed to get an amazing bargain break of only 7.00 per night for our tent pitch including Electric hock up and our dog. I must say I was pleasantly surprised. This is the biggest site we have been to, this being only our third ever camping trip, I suppose we don't have much to go on.

The site was superbly clean, on first arrival at reception we were given a map and directions to our pitch, also told we had to pay a 5.00 deposit for the toilet key.

The grass is cut very regularly, the toilets totally spotless as were the showers (both being housed in a new, heated 'portacabin', not to be knocked I can assure you). All staff were friendly and willing to help. The kiddies play area looked quite new and was over looked by the veranda of the small complex, so could relax with a drink ect while watching your kiddies. The food seemed adequate and the usual pub style fayre, all the salads were very fresh no limp brown lettuce in sight! The shop was well stocked and the Laundry, like everything else was spotless.

In all honesty I can not fault this site at all. I will not go back though, simply because dogs were not allowed on the beach, so meant quite a journey to take family plus dog for a paddle. Shame really, Withernsea Sands is lovely.

Paid 45 for 2 nights. On arrival we were told we were on the field across the road but could use all the facilities on the 'main site'. To be honest the field across the road was actually a better choice as you couldn't get a pin between the tents and caravans on the main site.

The toilets in this field were vile. One grotty shower, no locks on the doors, a scabby hairdryer, no mirror on the wall, and a 3 deposit for a key. The door was never locked anyway. When we got up in the morning the windows had been put through too.

There were 4 sinks to wash up but no hot water.

We were told by a couple in a static that they were trying to close down this field and get everyone to move over the road.

The bar wasn't too bad I suppose, although more a case of 'if you can't beat em.'. Entertainment was awful - really. Toilets manky, no loo roll.

Tried the showers on the main site the day after. They were in a portacabin. Again, no locks on the doors. In fact no door on the shower, just a curtain. This meant my partner had to position himself outside the ladies showers whilst I went in, as anyone could of just walked in. Obviously he had a few funny looks. The water was either scalding or freezing. Take your pick?

This site had the potential to be lovely but just not looked after.

Weather was fantastic when we were there - very few tents - most people were in statics. Toilet block was very basic. Bar/Pool complex very modern and well equipped, but not to our taste. Did not like having to walk through an arcade in order to get to the bar - too tempting for the kids. Found the site very noisy, particularly when the club closed - lots of drinking, shouting, partying - if that's what you want, you're well in. Actually found it quite intimidating.

Withernsea itself was very disappointing - would not go this far south in Yorkshire again - access to attractions was too far away for our liking. Stern point was great.

Chose this site because it was close and we could use our tesco vouchers to pay! The cost should have been 25 per night for tent pitch with EHU and I think that is very much over priced given the site facilities.

Yes there is a decent bar area with entertainment for kids but the drinks aren't cheap and neither is the food. The pool is tiny so that if 2 families are in it then it's too busy.

Toilet blocks are adequate, clean, plenty of hot water and never run out of loo roll but at the price per night I'd expect better than this to be honest. I don't mind toilet facilities like this on cheaper basic sites but on a holiday park I did expect better.

Another big negative is how noisy the park is, even after 10pm. The entertainment goes on into the early hours and you have people walking through the pitches rather than sticking to the roads well after midnight and not being quiet about it. Kids stay on the park until very late and even though we were in the next field and quite a way away you could still hear the squeals of teenage girls! Then we got younger children on scooters racing past the tent at 6am to use the toilets!

Very big positive is how friendly and helpful the staff are. They greeted us well and called a warden out discuss where we'd like to pitch and then he met us there to make sure everything was ok and that we knew where everything was. There is also a touring warden office next to the toilet block so you can get help with whatever without needing to go to the main reception.

We arrived on the camp which looked great! having been told the site was full we had to go across the road to the next field (East field) to a standard tent pitch, the ground was very hilly so took a while to find a decent spot! Pitched up near the back fence to have a sea view.

Toilet/shower blocks outdated and grotty (3 deposit) so tried to use complex toilets/showers which were much better. No toilet roll in any! Pool very cold, shop adequate, reasonably priced. We booked 3 nights, went home after 2 due to top field being poor

Reviewer: Sally973 5 reviews from this member

I chose the site as is only a few hours drive from home and my son wanted to go somewhere with a pool.

On arriving the first impression was good,the receptionist was informative, organised and friendly. There were plenty of spaces to choose from and we decided to pitch in sight of the adventure play ground on a flat pitch. Whilst we were there there was plenty of space between the pitches as it was not busy, but with the way the are marked I would imagine that in the summer you will be on top of one another.

The toilet blocks were adequately clean but again come busy periods I am not sure that the one warden who I saw was enough to vlean and keep on top of all the site.

The entertainment was what could be expected of a place like Withernsea Sands,and on the whole very clean and well maintained. The shop was ok but not a fresh veg or piece of fruit in sight.

I must say a word about the staff - brilliant! very friendly, the ground warden is a lovely bloke and an asset to the place and the life guards at the pool were fantastic with the children - very professional yet interacted with them making them laugh.

A word of warning I pitched next to the hedge, the dawn chorus started just after four in the hedge and I had a feathered friend in the tent one morning at 6.

I would go again - out of season only though.

This was our first time camping so we decided not to go too far a field. Withernsea Sands seemed the ideal place to go with two 9 year olds and a 1yr old. We arrived to be greeted by friendly staff at reception and we were given our passes etc then off we went to choose our pitch. There were ample toilet and shower facilities and a small deposit of 3.00 for the toilet key which you got back when you returned it on your departure. The camp site was well lit at night. The club house had the usual arcades and entertainment throughout the day and night for kids and adults alike. The site had a football court and a zip wire where the kids had no end of fun.

We played rounders and cricket with other families who where staying at the site which was run by the entertainment team ( have to say they do have a tendency to cheat) aha.

We had a peaceful and fun weekend the site is big enough to do both, if you just want to chill you can or if you don't you have the clubhouse to party the night away. There is an onsite shop and launderette and I must say the shop isn't at all expensive, not what you would expect from an on site shop, it was like a little aladdins cave.

Oh and I nearly forgot the pool, the kids spent hours there, the only thing was there was limited changing rooms and there weren't any lockers to keep your belongings in. You can watch but hurry as spaces are very limited! Overall we would definitely go again

There are 2 touring fields here, the bottom one is relatively flat with toilet facilities that are not bad. Unfortunately were were in the top field!

Although the entertainments great and there is the pool and the play area and it could have made a nice family holiday but it didn't.

Upper field toilet blocks were built for the war effort and then extended. There was one shower in it that was either scald or freeze. There was a portacabin with 3 male and 3 female showers in and there was a queue every morning. For the size of site, 4 showers per sex is not enough really.

As for local attractions, there is the Hull road and the Hornsea road.

Ok so the staff were very good and were always pleasant but a farmer could plough a field smoother than the touring field was. I spotted one motorhome at the very tip of its blocks to level it out on one pitch.

Yes there was EHU and they do take large tents.

The onsite shop is well stocked and not too badly priced compared to having to start the car and drive into Withernsea.
