 3rd time visiting this site, so obviously enjoy the campsite. This was the first time without a dog however so were able to make use of the facilities which were very good.

The area is an excellent destination for walkers with plenty of paths to choose from both coastal and inland.

The site is a short walk from the lovely village of Flamborough which boasts 4 pubs, 3 of which provide meals, 2 chip shops a pizza takeaway and a good size co-op.

Can't wait to return.

Very wet four days but the toilets were immaculately clean and warm.

 Easy to find with good access, the guys at the touring site reception were informative and gave us a couple of options for pitches that we could use.

The touring field is towards the back of the site which was about 5-10 min walk to the entertainment, pool and chip shop.

The ground was a bit spongy but the rain had been relentless so quite understandable really, toilet/ shower facilities were spotless, great value for money (we stayed Oct half term so end of Oct).

Stunning views with some nice walks, close to Bridlington, Filey and Scarborough. Would certainly stey there again.

 Second visit to this lovely Haven touring site. Good size hard standing pitch with plenty of room for our 24ft motor home and plenty of space for an awning. Great walks along the coastal path.

The staff were friendly and knowledgeable and the facilities were clean and warm. Good little supermarket on site and a nice walk into Flamborough with shops and a few pubs.

Great value site and we have booked again for next year.

 Stayed 2 nights at this huge resort-style park close to Flamborough Head.

Easy to find and access. Touring field is through main park behind all the static caravans and has own Touring Reception. Friendly helpful staff. Level grass pitch with EHU a few hard standing available.

Chemical waste located next to the toilets. Toilets showers and dish washing nearby which were very clean, though we used our own shower. The"drive over" motorhome grey waste was just a rain water drain in the road near the kerb and difficult for large units to access!

Has indoor pool, children's play facilities, Co-op and laundry. There is a bus that stops on the site near the main entrance which goes to Flamborough and Sewerby Hall.

Paid 26 for 2 nights but this was a special offer reduced from 44. You are given an arrival time that you must arrive within or advise if going to be late. Overly complicated arrival system.

 "Thornwick Bay"(and Seafarm) Been coming here since early 70s.

Great improvments to the whole site well done, Sadly the caravan Touring part is not great? Seems like they started well off with the hard standing row, and then just throw the rest of the caravans into a corner?

Could do with all being hard standing and a warden on after 5. 00pm to direct late arrivals including trailer tents & cars from pitching anywhere?

Oh and a quick thanks to the person in the VW for taking a short cut between the caravans over the flower bed too get from one road to another to reach his static and running over our power cable twice?

 I love this site, been going for the past 45 years. I always book a year in advance so it feels like its for free. The staff are great, also available to help set up and wrap up the caravan. The facilities are great. I holiday with just my dogs and walks are fantastic. I could live there its that nice.

 We have just had five days here on a grass pitch with electric hook up, water, and TV.

This park has to be the jewel in the crown for Haven.

Everywhere looks new and clean.

The wardens were very friendly and helpful!

The cleaners are always in the bathrooms keeping them spotless!

Next time we are on the east coast we will be returning here!

I am a registered blind camper and felt safe and secure on this campsite!

Reviewer: Harlandi 1 review from this member

 We arrived without booking, after suggestion from Wilsthorpe as they are not dog friendly, our very first night out in the motorhome. Upon arrival there was somebody to greet us, friendly and advised us where to park whilst we booked in. Went to book in, staff really nice and pleasant. Arrived at the touring pitch, where yet again, the staff were friendly and polite. We were put on a grass pitch, although there are hard standing pitches. There was ehu and water. We hooked up and went to find the beach. This was about half hour slow walk, passing exercise areas. On the cliff top, there is a cafe and dogs are allowed in. Clean and reasonably priced. We had cake and coffee which was nice. There is ample seating available on the cliff top, but it is steep to get to the tiny bit of beach. There are also caves in the cliff edges. We headed back and explored the site.

The facilities (shower room and toilets, pot and chemical wash) were clean as was the whole of the site.

We went to the reception area, which was about 20 minute walk, but did get lost a little, looking for the short cut, and partner had bad ankle. This was a Saturday about 6pm. The shop was still open, much to my relief, fairly priced, friendly and clean. We didn't explore the club house as we had Giggolo (the family dog) with us. The swimming area was closed but looks good from the outside.

We went and got fish and chips from the local takeaway, which was clean and friendly. He cooked it fresh so we had 10 minute wait and waited outside the park. This costs about 8 each. We strolled back with fish and chips, got lost again, looking for the short cut instead of following the road. Chips were cold, but fish was warm and ok, the mushy peas were hot!

The only grumble to have is maybe a bit more signage around the site for those that have a tendency to take short cuts and get lost.

Would definitely visit again!

 Fantastic site.

Stayed in October and had great weather all week.

7 nights for 60

Close to Brid, a place I love, with things to do for all ages.

Thornwick bay is stunning, be careful of tides and steep access.

The site as everything you will need on it, so either enjoy all the site with the kids or go and explore the area.

Stay at Haven sites a lot and love them.

Some good bargains to have, and not at all noisy sites.

Reviewer: Bungle Bear72 10 reviews from this member

 Fantastic site, met at security and given detailed information on how to get to touring area of site. They radioed through to warden who met me and took me to my pitch. Very spacious, caravan, awning and car parking space. 3 toilet blocks, spotlessly clean throughout, even when busy at weekend(2 3rds full) and always hot water.

Play area for children excellent on touring area. Loads to do as you can imagine on a Haven site.

Plenty of walks for dog lovers and loads of dog mess bins so no doggy poo trees.

Well stocked, reasonably priced shop and again really friendly staff plus free sun newspaper with any. Purchase during main season.

Bempton Cliffs RSPB reserve nearby as well as Bridlington and Scarborough only short drives away.

Booked again for mid September can't wait.

Big up to Josh and security lady for making feel most welcome straight away.
