 A superb site with lots of space overlooking the Filey bay, the facilities are second to none, quite a large number of WCs, showers etc, although if the camping field was full in school holidays and bank holidays I suspect there may be queues.

A tad pricey at 25.00 for a tent (that is the cheapest summer rate).

The one thing that really pt me off was finding dog excrement on the camping field where children were playing, obviously an inconsiderate dog owner but there is no dedicated dog exercise area and we never saw a warden the whole time we stayed there so essentially no rules for dogs and no policing of the same. This does need resolving by the management.

 Nice site pitches are flat and full service. Chip shop is good although quite a queue at times. Grandkids love the pool.

Evening entertainment in family room. Separate room if you just want a pint and game of pool with sports on tv.

If you have dogs like me you can sit in the conservatory still hear the bands playing.

 Lovely site! Clean and plentiful amenities. Great for kids with a lovely park and popular with families!

Slept well as it was quite by 12 am! Will definitely be visiting again we loved it!

Beautiful views over the sea and fantastic watching the sun set!

 We stayed for one night on this site. Fully stocked shop and swimming pool, views are amazing. Toilets adequate, clean but then later in day had no toilet paper.

The biggest problem is the noise at night there seems to be no regards to other people and nobody around at night to deal with problems.

People who were camping near to us shouting, singing and playing loud music from their cars until 6. 30 in the morning. While we do expect some noise it is a different matter when you don't sleep at ALL!

Would have stayed longer but noise unacceptable.

 Just had a few nights here, the 'standard pitch' that we had was fine for us, we noticed the bigger pitches (5 pn extra) were all up one side of the site and terraced up the slope, they seemed to be a bit crowded in that area to me.

Annoying to be charged 2 per night for an awning, but I know it happens, it seemed every pitch had a large sandy hole to contend with under awning, I did ask for mine to be filled in, but no joy, couldn't use a table, the hole was so big.

Toilets were adequate, although no loo brushes did lead to them not being as clean as they might be, even with daily cleaning.

Showers. One hook and a small stool for all your needs? No shower curtain, so clothes could easily be splashed, no squeegee or mop to clean up meant wet feet all round and nowhere to dry off, the showers themselves were very good.

Nothing to do within walking distance, other than the steep path down to the clifftop walk.

Complained about the pot wash area with running water on the floor and no overhead lighting, no response.

Good shop, good fish and chip shop, good play area for kids, club seemed to be popular, swimming pool small and busy, priced separately.

 Just got back from this site we stayed for 1 week. The touring pitches are very tight, to close together, facing vans can not move on or off their pitches easy. Yes it does allow dogs on the site and plenty of dog parks for them to run around and yes they are allowed into the bar conservatory, but its is dark and cold.

Yes we are holidaying with our dogs but we do not need to be kept in a cold dark room when we are buying our beer /wine from you. Also the bottom toilet/shower block was lovely and warm plenty of hot water but no mop and bucket to clean your shower after use.

Yes they get cleaned by staff early in the day but come evening they are bad. Would not like to see this site in the middle of summer for the above reasons. The chippy only opened fri/sat teatime. The site shop only opened reduced hours.

Come on site people it was not the end of season just yet. The swimming pool was open.

The bus stop just outside the camp and is handy for travelling into scarbrough /filey.

 Just returned from a fantastic family holiday at this site. Myself, husband, eldest son and 3 16year olds. The site was everything we could wish for, very clean and tidy, staff very friendly, amazing hot showers ( plenty available) and considering we went peak season not noisy at all. The three teenagers, loved the site, made many friends, and enjoyed the club and swimming baths. Fantastic views from the cliff top, and rolling hills other direction. Would definitely recommend this site to young and old alike.

 Just stayed here bank holiday weekend friendly arrival with a well shown map from reception good park and good pool with a handy need anything little supermarket nice little bar. The facilities was good and kept clean given the amount of people they allow on when it is a bank holiday. The downsides in our opinion are that really they would be better not been greedy by getting the overflow field and every field as full as they can bearing in mind the amount of facilities (wash\showers) there is as if you went 8-9am time forget it they was muddy and messy. Should just limit it or get more facilities built. Also a little noisy on a night till 12ish time but we were next to the pool literally with lack of space so may that is our fault\problem. Having said that we did enjoy it and would go back.

 To be fair we booked fairly late on and there were plenty of spaces, albeit on the overflow field. However, due to us having a tent we were left terribly exposed to the very high winds.

The campsite is on the cliffs only a few hundred yards from the sea. We were lucky enough to to have a decent tent and were able to pitch it up properly. Many other tents were literally blowing away.

There is a small shop on site which was good, but we never used the 'pub'. I think that due to the location, and the fact we are in a tent would probably put us off going back. Stick to somewhere further inland.

 Very friendly on arrival. Our site was a large tent pitch with ehc. Brilliant size and quite sheltered. We had toilet block one side the rear of the dog park which was on a hill at the back. It seemed quite quiet the standard pitches looked nice on the cliff top overlooking the sea, but we had strong winds the first night which may have caused severe problems to those on more open pitches. I would have happily taken our dog to this site & may go back in future. The toilet block & showers were pleasant & clean. However the lights aren't on long enough to shower yourself & young children. We were plunged into darkness twice when showering with little ones. Location is good for filey, Scarborough & Whitby although a bus runs it is quite a walk to the bus stop & car is needed really with little ones. Swimming pool was good size & with slides but very cold. No one was in it long from what we saw. Play area was very good our 3 year old enjoyed it and all good condition. Bar looked desolate and we didn't go in. Didn't open till 7 & kids were shattered by then. Shop was reasonable & well stocked. I am sure we will be back in the future with the dog tagging along
