Stayed here for 4 nights at end of Aug 2018 to 1st Sept, very hilly roads everywhere around here, site also very hilly but warden does fantastic job of taking your caravan to your pitch with his 4x4 and doing all the levelling for you with their chunky wooden the chocks.

The view is to die for, probably from all pitches.

Helpful wardens running this family site, good facilities and would definitely recommend if you want to stay this way.

We cycled into Whitby on the Cinder-track about 13 mile round trip and also cycled the other direction to Ravenscar about 10 mile round trip.

£24 per night with EHU + awning

We used our caravan facilities mostly but we did think it would be a bit of a hike for people in tents to the toilets

Stayed for 4 nights last week. Very helpful kind owners. Facilities spot on. The views gorgeous. Nice sized pitches. EHU pitches at the top of the site slightly less sloping. Would return and highly recommended.

Stayed for 2 nights with electric at the top of the site, although next to the road it wasn't too busy. Site was busy but the owner couldn't have been more helpful. Friendly greeting from the 'ladies' in the reception van, although site is sloping we were expertly levelled up with wooden blocks in no time. Great facilities, toilets and showers were portacabin based but clean and tidy. Super location for walking to Robin Hoods Bay and surrounding area. Bus stop outside site with hourly buses to Whitby.

Lovely, dog and human-friendly campsite, really helpful owners who were around when needed on arrival but left you in peace to enjoy the fabulous views of coast and countryside. Clean, well-maintained facilities which did what they said on the tin - showers hot and powerful if basic. Good to have easily accessible water-fill for on-board tank. Good mix of hard-standing and grass pitches with levelling ramps available from the owner. Great location for walking into Robin Hood's Bay and the surrounding countryside. Hourly bus to Whitby at the entrance to the campsite which we would certainly take advantage of next time. Great pubs and eating in the village and a digestion-settling, stiff walk up the hill afterwards! Will definitely return to this little gem of a campsite.

Our first visit to this site. We rang ahead to advise that we would be arriving late and in darkness. This was not a problem with an eta of 7. 30, but later than that and it may have been, I add this to discourage others not as a reflection on the owners who were very helpful. On arrival our van was hitched up to their Ninety and we watched, amazed as a three strong team quickly and skillfully pitched our van for us on the sloping location. Amazing service!

Woke the next day to stunning views out across the bay, I don't think you could find a pitch on the site without a great vista.

All facilities are clean, well maintained and look virtually new. Tons of hot water. Very conveniently located just above the village of Robin Hoods Bay and a very short drive into Whitby. Our pitch was at the top of the site so it was adjacent to the local road. However traffic is pretty light and virtually non existent at night so we didn't feel disturbed, besides the tail end of Hurricane Brian meant the wind drowned most noise out anyway.

Some of the pitches are a little distant from the water/waste point but if that's a downside choose a closer pitch, ours was fine.

Overall this site is a perfect spot and excellent value run by very friendly and welcoming people. We will return.

Super site, stayed 2 nights this weekend and had a great time and will return next year. Site is easy to access, the owner helped us set up level on a hard standing with grass to the side. The wash facilities are nice, very clean with plenty of hot water and lighting good to see your way round. The site does slope however the pitch we had was level. Phone signal was good but no wifi which added to the relaxing time for me. Very friendly people and the views out across the bay are wonderful, you have access to a path from the site which takes you down a steep hill to join the path into Robin Hoods bay.

This site is absolutely beautiful. The views from every part of the site are incredible. This is our first visit to Whitby, and to Yorkshire though we live only a jump away in Derbyshire and we LOVED it.

The owners are very friendly and so well organized. The site is quiet, despite being on a main road (which is practically deserted after dark) which makes the site easy to find for first time vizitors.

Robin Hood's Bay is a short walk away down the hill (can a long walk back up again). In the village you will find magnificent local beers at the pubs and fish 'n' chips that will be just about the best you've ever tasted (unless you managed to visit the Magpie in Whitby itself.

I will definitely be back!

This was our first visit to Hooks House Farm and it certainly won’t be the last.

We have a caravan which was pitched for us given the field is sloping, it was levelled up and chocked by the very friendly staff saving us the pain of doing this ourselves, the view over Robin Hoods Bay was magnificent.

The facilities are spotless, everything being located in one place.

You can walk via a public footpath from the farm down to Robin Hoods Bay across farm fields, which brings you out at the church; this takes 10-15 minutes, a little longer coming back as it is obviously uphill.

The atmosphere on the site was great with a mix of tents, motorhomes and caravans on grass pitches. Looking forward to returning next year.

We travel from Scotland to Yorkshire every year in our caravan at some point in the year to incorporate a holiday with visiting family. On those trips we have tried a number of times to get a pitch on this site and (because we are last minute in our plans) the site has always been full. This time we planned ahead and had a pitch with glorious views for four nights. The owners were extremely helpful and gave us a pitch beside a family member with their van. In fact the two things that make this site special are the views and the attitude of the owners. We saw many times how much they made efforts to make everyone feel welcome as well as running a very tight ship in terms of getting vans into pitches and looking after the condition of the grass. If we could give 11/10 for customer service we would. We loved the walk down through the field to Robin Hood's Bay (enough exercise coming back up the hill to make us feel we'd earned a drink when we got back). Facilities were spotless and perfectly adequate if not luxurious. Some thought had been given to putting up plenty of hooks in the showers. We just loved the whole experience and will very certainly make sure we go back.

I really liked this site. Fantastic views, good clean facilities and friendly owners,

One of our dogs is quite old now and can't walk as far as he used to so the fact that we could get the bus from right outside the site was brilliant. The buses ran every half hour and went to Robin Hood's Bay and Scarborough one way and to Whitby the other. We got the bus to and from Fylingthorpe to go to the pub a couple of times. We went to Whitby twice, once to the dog friendly abbey and once for a little bit of shopping. We always made use of the bus on the way back from town.

The pubs in Robin Hood's bay were dog friendly. Our favourite was Ye Dolphin, we ate there twice. We also liked the Laurel but they didn't do food. Some areas of the Fylingdales Inn were dog friendly.

We had some neighbours who played quite loud music on the one afternoon and the owner came over and dealt with it very well. It wasn't really bothering us but I think it is a slippery slope if not nipped in the bud. No nastiness just a quiet word. Overall a quiet and peaceful site.

There were 3 male and 3 female showers. I only had to wait once on a day the site was full, but I think had I gone 20minutes earlier or later I wouldn't have waited at all. I never waited for the loo even when the site was full There were sinks inside for washing up in the room with the fridge and freezers. The best washing up was outside though with views straight ahead across the bay. There was also a separate barn with wash rooms for both sexes, about three of each.

It is quite slopey but there were plenty of wedges etc to level cupboards to make cooking etc easier.
