 Great location with a super view of open countryside. Only 5 minutes walk away from the gorgeous unspoilt beach of Cayton Bay. Lovely clean shower block and very friendly owner.

Quaint Filey is just 5 minutes drive south and the ultimate Brirish seaside experience of Scarborough is just 5 minutes to the North.

There is also an excellent farm shop and a pub right next door.

What's not to like and a brilliant way to fall in love again with a UK holiday.

 Great little site in a good location, you can walk to the beach and a lovely farm shop next door.

The field is rather sloped but as it was quiet we got a flat pitch but would imagine when it is busy you would not have a choice.

The toilets were very clean and plenty of hot water, but as other reviews have said very basic and mixed with the doors open all the time so rather cold.

Very expensive for a basic site, but I suppose you are paying for the location.

 Just back from a weekend here. Not a bad place to stay and could be made so much better with a few easy fixes. Field has too many potholes which is a pain when you have a tent and they are in the middle of your floor, plus a little dangerous when wandering over to the toilet block in the dark.

The toilet block is uni-sex and although the shower and toilet facilities work fine (the water pressure is good and very hot), being constructed out of chipboard doesn't make it feel very sanitary (although cleaned on a very regular basis).

Also having to be off site by 10. 00am is a bit of a pain, 11. 00 would be so much better. This deadline is also quite aggresively policed which I found a bit unnecessary. Having to park your car offsite is also a little inconvenient.

Location is pretty good, although its 5 miles to walk to Scarborough, not 2. Great Farm Shop / Cafe next door that does excellent food and The Plough Pub looks like a great place to visit with an excellent play area for kids (although currently closed) at the end of the lane (5 mins walk). Site is a quite sloped too.

Overall it was adequate for our stay but at 25 per night with no EHU I think its a little overpriced.

 Started looking for sites in this area in late June - main proviso being that we didn't want anything too big, but it needed to be near some attractions for children. Very little availability and this site looked good - spoke to the owner on the phone who listed what was around and about (although at the time she didn't know what attractions would be open, understandably).

Explained that we wanted two pitches side by side for a motorhome and a camper van as we were meeting my stepson and his two young children, and were offered two hardstandings sharing an EHU point. On arrival the owner wasn't there and her two sons were unaware of what had been discussed, but made an effort to accommodate us and offered a small refund.

We were pitched on a fair slope but made it work. The site was extremely busy and continued to get fuller as the day wore on so was quite hectic by night time. Luckily some people moved on the next day, although they were quickly replaced as our stay continued. Stepson and children used the site showers and loos, and said they were fine, although there were queues in the mornings.

There is only one drinking water point. Litter bins were overflowing until emptied on the Tuesday, when they quickly refilled, and they, plus the slightly whiffy septic tank are in the middle of the site.

On the plus side there is a nice beach within easy walking or cycling distance, although you need to negotiate a steep slope and some steps to get down to it. The Cleveland Way is five minutes walk away across a field and offers some lovely walking; you can walk to Filey (considerably more than the 2 miles quoted!) and Scarborough on this path if you are fairly fit and agile.

Both towns are easily accessed by car. There is a fabulous farmshop/ cafe next door and the garage 5 mins away has a very good Spar shop. The local pub has lots of play equipment but had not re-opened by mid-July; the Scarborough Fair attraction is also only five minutes walk away but remains shut.

We are unlikely to return as it was not peaceful enough for us but could be a good option in a 'normal' year for campers with children, especially in a tent. It also pricey compared to what we would normally pay at 30 inc EHU, but I gather this is fairly normal for the area.

 What a fabulous site.

We recently visited the site as our first post lockdown getaway with a party of 15. Upon arrival the staff where very helpful and met our unusual requirements.

We had a mix of Caravans, tents and motor homes all arriving at different times which where all accommodated with ease.

The facilities where good too, Although the shower block was mixed, you would never know, plenty of hot water all day and the electric never tripped once.

Great access to some fabulous walks with amazing scenery on the nearby Cleveland way and a traffic free cycle route into Scarborough.

Highly recommended for a family Staycation close to the sea and beaches.

Reviewer: Samuel-jonathan 1 review from this member

 We spent the first weekend following lifting of COVID lockdown here. The reviews of the campsite on this forum give a good description of the site and of what to expect.

Main comment -- we felt we were massively overcharged - prices were not advertised on the website. I wonder what others paid? Clearly there is enough demand for camping this year that people are willing to pay what ever is asked.

Other occupants of the campsites were broadly split into young families and groups of younger adults (surfers). The atmosphere was friendly, but the site was noisy, particularly from other people's music systems, and traffic noise from the nearby A road.

The site feels 'relaxed' - great for those wanting to party into the small hours & not be bound by the rules and regulations that are often heavy-handedly applied at other sites. It did feel that there were a lot of people crammed into a relatively small space. There was a lot of rubbish piled up overflowing the bins.

The site is mostly sloping.

Facilities were basic (as described by other reviewers) but were clean. The showers were excellent. Lots of hot running water. Washing up facility inadequate - one small sink for the whole site.

We had a reasonable stay here but I wouldn't return or recommend this site to others.

 Great little site, quite basic but clean. Friendly owners.

Farm shop /cafe next door. Pub 5 minutes walk away.

Tarmac cycle track leads into outskirts of Scarborough.

Nearby cliff walk links Scarborough and Filey.

Reviewer: AmyHawkesB 1 review from this member

 We stayed here for two nights just after Christmas in the bell tent with a hot tub.

Positives- lovely host, Rebecca, she made us feel at home. Her chilli and egg and sausage sandwiches were lovely, she even brought them to our tent at times that suited us, much appreciated in the winter and I would recommend people paying for her meals. The location was perfect for visiting Filey and Scarborough. The views from the hot tub where amazing.

Negatives- The shower block was not the best, a bit dated and unisex which some people might not feel comfortable with. Also, the bell tent was extremely cold, to the point where we had to buy a fan heater the next day. The hot tub also did not seem to keep its temperature, it dropped 4 degrees within an hour! Maybe a wooden shelter would help with this, especially in the colder months. Either that or there was a problem with it.

Enjoyed our stay, can see Rebecca making this into a big success!

 Stayed 3 nights with our grandson (4yrs).

Positives. Great location able to ride bike safely, off road to beach, locked it up at carpark cos descent to beach steep. Brilliant beach.

Clean toilets, hot water. Rebecca is a lovely person.

Negatives, I wasn't tempted to use the showers, wooden interior felt bit grim. Definitely need updating. (surprising that shared facilities allowed these days).

Felt it was overpriced.

Hope Rebecca is successful in fulfilling her dream, she deserves it.
