 Well what can I say about York House Caravan park. Errrrmmmm fantastic as usual, been to this site 2 or 3 times now can't fault it, friendly, good clean facilities loads of hot water for showering and in the pan wash area, dog friendly, large field to walk dogs and clean, cheap beer at the hotel bar & food ok. Fantastic views to whitby & easy access to robin hoods bay and surrounding towns.

The tent pitches are marked out so you know exactly where you are supposed to be, we took some camping virgins with there children with us and they seemed to love the area and camping experience the weather helped it was red hot. Maybe play area could do with more swings.

Go there.

 Stayed here for 5 nights, good site and well maintained, just 4 miles to Whitby and 2 miles to Robins Hood Bay. Toilets and showers clean and showers were free and always plenty hot water. There is a pub on the site selling meals which were very well priced and tasty. The staff are very friendly and spot on, and were there to help getting caravan on to our pitch. You pay for your electric by top up cards which are 1 each, we stayed 4 nights and cost us 4. Pitches are large and well spaced. If we tour in this area again we would go back no problem.

 We visited this site for the first time with our friends and dogs in July 2013 and enjoyed it so much we returned in August.

We have just booked again to go at the end of May and I have to say it is one of my favourite sites. The staff are really friendly and helpful. The facilities are VERY good. There is an on site bar selling 'pub grub'. You aren't far from a large Sainsburys and in easy reach of Whitby and Robin Hood's Bay.

The tent pitches are in three different areas. The first being called The 'Pony Paddock', this area is for large tents with EHU and are very close to the showers and toilets. Then there are the 'tiers', where maybe 5 or 6 tents share a tier and they are very sheltered. They are further from the toilets but have a portable loo at the end of each tier. The last area is the top field (only open in peak times) which is the furthest away from the facilities but again has a portable loo BUT no EHU.

This is a very well kept site and I would recommend it for people of all ages, for children and for dogs!

Cant wait to return!

 Recently visited this site for a 3 night stay, park is set in lovely countryside and a short distant from whitby town centre, all staff where very friendly and informative.

All facilities were clean and well maintained, pitch sizes were good and priced fairly, and all within reasonable distance from toilets and water.

Site has a nice play park for the kids and a small games room that includes a pool table, table tennis and video games, on site bar and restaurant.

All in all a lovely site and will definitely be visiting again

Reviewer: Donnyvan1 1 review from this member

 The site is located in a beautiful area with views across to Whitby. The staff are very friendly and the grassed areas well maintained.

The pitches are slightly cramped preventing us from erecting the bedroom extension to our awning. The entire site appears to be on a slight slope but nothing excessive.

We consider that the fees were too high and did not reflect the standard of the facilities offered which we found to be in need of care and attention.

We left just as the schools were breaking up so I imagine our visit was not at the busiest time. The one toilet/shower block struggled to cope at the rush hour in the morning. The gents block had maintenance issues, for example some of the toilet door locks failed to operate properly and on more than one occasion during our short visit embarrassment was caused when doors were opened on occupied cubicles.

The showers would have been fine, being the push button type but their cleanliness was below standard. The white tiled walls were in dire need of cleaning. All this could be easily rectified with a proper cleaning regime.

We found fellow guests to be largely amiable although one party did deem it ok to play loud music late into the night preventing sleep. Unfortunately this went unchecked by the staff but eventually stopped of its own accord.

We paid 24 per night which included the awning. It did not however include electricity. For this we had to purchase prepayment cards. We used only our refrigerator and a few lights and the bill for our 10 day stay came to 7.

Despite the few issues we did have a nice break, helped along by wonderful weather.

 Couldn't have asked for a better place to camp as newcomers. My party along with another consisting of the same number (people, dogs and cars) had a wonderful time at this beautifully kept, idyllic little hide away. Showers, toilets and cleaning facilities where spot on (obviously you can't control other users) Staff where really friendly and helpful. Plenty of attractions to be seen and something for all in the surrounding area. Will definitely be booking up to go again.

 We stayed at this site for 3 days over bank holiday for the first time. The staff are friendly and helpful and make you feel welcome from the minute you arrive.

The check-in is straight forward and the staff will show you to your pitch and give you any assistance required. The reception is also a shop selling basic foods and extras like toys to keep the kids amused while you set up. You are given a code for barrier and facilities so you can come and go from site whenever you please during your stay.

The pitches are well maintained and the upper and lower terraces private and reasonably quiet, until early morning when the many birds begin their day and havoc commences between, wood pigeons, crows and hedgerow birds! We could hear the motorbikes travelling along the main road late at night but it was intermittent and depends on wind direction as to whether you hear it.

From the upper field there are stunning views towards Whitby and sheep on the fields behind which amused some of the smaller children. There are plenty of public footpaths nearby to have a stroll or you can walk to Robin Hoods Bay, though we found it easier to drive as it's over 2 miles away, saving our energy to explore the many footpaths down to the bay. There are buses from the main road which take you to Whitby, we did not use them as we have car and found adequate parking in Whitby on the harbour side near the Co-operative food store. There is also a Sainsbury's supermarket and petrol station on the main road going into Whitby which is useful if you have family and want to cook your own meals.

The hotel bar on site is worth a visit. We enjoyed a drink in the evening on the terrace. There is plenty of seating outside some of which is under cover. Plenty of people seemed to enjoy the food available though we didn't try meals on this visit.

The play park was popular with small children and teenagers, all seemed to be having a good time. There is room for ball games and kids to run around and let off steam.

Showers were hot and toilets were clean and would have been tidy if it wasn't for some inconsiderate visitors who felt it was ok to leave their make-up, toothpaste and hair all over the facilities.

We visited Staithes, Runswick Bay and Whitby and found plenty of walks, places to eat and quiet spots to enjoy the sunshine.

We are looking forward to booking another stay at York House and have already recommended it to friends visiting Whitby next month. It is good to know that customer service prevails at this site.

Reviewer: Dylsam 15 reviews from this member

 Just had 3 nights here. A nice well kept and tidy site 4 miles from whitby. Less than 10 mins. To bus stops for whitby or Scarborough directions. Lovely views. Clean and warm shower and toilet block with large roomy shower cubicles. Hot water in shower by push botton but not a problem. 10 per night for 2 adults. E. H. U. Was by card sold at site shop and for 3 nights and two full days, with heating on. It only cost about 9.

Not bad at all because it WAS cold weather. We got a good level pitch and others looked just as good. Friendly and helpful staff.

Just 1 point, we did see a dog running loose and there was dog dirt but this may have been the fault of an inconsiderate dog owner.

 Fantastic site. There is something for everyone here, statics, seasonals, tourers, hardstandings and campers.

We booked the morning of our stay, we were met at reception by friendly faces who took details and directed us to the touring area we were able to choose any vacant pitch. Here we were met by a friendly gent who filled our water tank, directed us into our chosen pitch and even inserted the prepaid electric card, so great service all round. The electric cards are a great idea as we would be happy to pay 5 a night for hook up in winter, this worked out as 5 for stay which was two nights but 3 days as we arrived at 2 on the first night and didn't leave until 11 on the last day, we had the heating on all the time we were on site so great value.

The location of the site is fantastic close to Whitby & Robin Hoods Bay, great access to the coast and the moors via footpaths too.

The toilets & showers were warm and clean.

We didn't visit the hotel as we ran out of time but we will definitely do so when we visit again, the menu was displayed outside and looked extensive.

We will be recommending this site.

 We really like this site and use it frequently. Its set nicely on a quiet hillside with great views of the Esk valley and equi-distance between the historic town of Whitby and beautiful Robin Hoods Bay. Nothing seems to be too much trouble for the staff here, Good facilities with friendly family bar, kids games room, outside play area, dog friendly and best of all - perfectly placed for the Cinder path cycle way from Whitby to Scarborough (a little tough in stretches but more than makes up for it with the scenery)
