 Lovely clean and well run and maintained site.

Very quiet and relaxing. Excellent setting and great location to visit all east coast.

Reviewer: Eugeneaustin 2 reviews from this member

 Just arrived home from this lovely caravan site. The wardens very, very polite and helpful. Toilets, showers brilliantly clean. Lawns cut. Pitches large and spacey.

The local pub the ox not bad, but there are other pub's nearby which does good food. York about 20 miles away, Scarborough 6 miles, filey lovely place to visit. Overall Yorkshire has a lot to visit, that's why we have been three times over three years.

This caravan site is a must to visit. Very quiet and wildlife. See at night it's weird starry eye's shinning scary.

Reviewer: Campuz 10 reviews from this member

 Very nice site. Well maintained field and Toilet blocks are spotless. Staff are helpful when required. Good Location with access to Filey & Scarboro etc. Small shop on site with essentials.

My negatives would be as follows. Its nice to have a clean tidy site but in my opinion this site borders on Clinical. You almost feel as if the cleaner would step in and valet the whole shower block as soon as you remove your towel from the hook in the shower block. You are told Strictly to walk your Dog on the Road to reach the Dog walk area do not cross the grass and you almost feel like a siren will sound if you fail to follow the rigid rules. We have rigid rules in our daily and working life Our weekends in the Van are for relaxing. The almost Military Precision means there is a definite lack of atmosphere on this site added to by the fact that there are Caravans as far as the eye can see, but no one occupying them as they are all empty seasonal vans which makes for a rather empty site (In August). Whilst there are several Toilet blocks there is only one location for Rubbish Bins close to the entrance. One hell of a hike if you are at the far end of the site. More Bins at each Toilet block would be more practical. The site offers WIFI but they openly admit that the connection is VERY poor. So at £26 per pitch per night c/w EHU. I have stayed at some equally nice sites for much less. Hard to be negative because this site is so nice but a few things for the owners to consider. 
Management response: Thanks for taking the time to leave your thoughts on our park. We’ve never had anyone comment that we’re too clinical before!

We clean our three amenity blocks thoroughly every day between 10am and 1pm and usually this is all we do. When our park is full we then just nip in to check there’s enough loo roll at around 5pm, 10pm and then 7am before the morning rush because that’s all it takes. It really is a big thank you to our great guests who appreciate that we provide lovely facilities and look after them that they stay so clean in between times.

We have many dog owners who stay with us throughout the year and our rules are there to avoid any misunderstandings. All of them are common sense as we know caravanners (including other dog owners) don’t want dogs exercised around the amenity blocks and facilities, over the open area where the children play (we know it’s unbelievable but some have done) or around their unit. They also don’t want next door’s dog let out in a morning or at night to take a quick wee up their aquaroll (yes we have seen it happen!).

On the main part of the park there are 54 seasonal pitches and 51 regular touring pitches, so about half of each. Our touring pitches have been fully utilised throughout the summer holidays with upto 130 people staying with us each night. This is in addition to the seasonal pitch holders, some of whom work and can only visit on a weekend which they do regularly, adding to the numbers. Ours is a very quiet and relaxing park which may be why you feel it is lacking in atmosphere but sitting out with a brew and reading a book while listening to the birds singing is what we’re about and is one of the reasons why we consistently have the exceptional record of over 75% repeat business.

The bins are all at the entrance as this is what we were advised to do by Visit England on their grading visits, where we have achieved five stars for the last 18 years. This keep smells and, in the summer, wasps, as far away from individual caravans and amenity blocks as possible while still being highly accessible to drop off rubbish on the way out.

We agree with you about the WiFi and let people know it is ‘rural’. We have a fixed amount of data we can get to the park and when we are busy this is shared between anyone who wants to use it. There are periods of the day when demand is high which makes it very slow. Streaming/downloading large files is blocked as this stalls the system, making is unusable for everyone. We have good 4G coverage for many networks and advise if you need the internet to ensure your provider supports this.

During the summer holidays our pitch fee for car, caravan, two adults and electric hook up is £25 a night which compares very favourably with equivalent parks in our area. From 3rd September it drops to £17 a night.

Once again, thank you for your comments and we hope we have explained fully the reasons behind why we do what we do, and why we will not compromise on our standards.
We hope to welcome you back to Lebberston in the future.

Reviewer: Marjay 7 reviews from this member

 One of our favourite sites. The owners and staff are so friendly and helpful. Beautiful showers which are kept immaculate at all times and with a wide choice of shower units there are never any queues. The grass areas are kept short and tidy. A small shop provides all the essentials you need and you can order a paper if you wish. Next door is a small Information Bureau with plenty of leaflets with information about places to go in the area including a bus timetable which is very useful as there is a bus to Filey and one to Scarborough roughly alternately every half hour. The bus can be caught at the Ox Inn a short walk from the site entrance and on return journeys most drivers are usually happy to drop you off at the site gates.
I would highly recommend this site and hope to return again before the end of the season.

Reviewer: Wonky Cat 1 review from this member

 Having only just bought our first caravan we chose this site for our first outing and so pleased we did. The facilities are excellent and the people very friendly and helpful. On arriving they took our caravan to our pitch and made sure it was level and also asked us if we needed any more help as they knew we were novices. There is a dog area for you to take your dog which is well maintained and a nature area. We enjoyed so much we went back for a second visit and this time ventured on putting up the porch awning up which we dreaded but in fact it was easier then we thought and didn't take too long. We will certainly be going back again sometime soon.

Reviewer: Greasychipbutty 9 reviews from this member

 Stayed at this site over the late May bank holiday for four nights with two grandchildren aged eight and thirteen

As soon as we entered the site the guy approached our unit with his tractor to tow and level our van at the pitch. Not a bad start.

Paid ten pound refundable deposit for a barrier fob although through the daytime it was set on automatic.

We found all the staff very friendly and they pointed out where all the toilet blocks, waste water, chemical toilets ect were on the site.

We were booked on a grass pitch on a gentle slope which had been levelled for us.

Pitches were spacious and complete grass unlike some sites you would be lucky to find a square foot of mud on the whole grounds.

Toilets and facilities were spotlessly clean.

It was nice to see the holiday makers adhering to the speed limit, with a lot of young kids including ours out on their bikes.

The oldest grandchild enjoyed the small football pitch and free wifi, whilst the youngest was out on her bike most of the time.

The site is about two miles from Filey, around five miles from Scarborough, a pub a short walk from the site and about fifteen minutes away a second pub with an outdoor and indoor kids play area which served meals.

It would be extremely difficult to find a fault with this site, a credit to the owners.

We thoroughly enjoyed our break at Lebberston and will be back.

 We have just returned from our 4th visit to Lebberston Touring Caravan Park and nothing changes, it is just as spotlessly clean in the toilets and shower blocks as always, (the NHS could learn a lot about cleanliness from Mark and his superb Team) the pitches are like a snooker table, the grassed areas trimmed and neat. Customer service is way above average and there is always a welcome smile to greet you.

The charges are less than other local sites and the electric hook up is free and 16 amps to boot. Don't waste your time going to other local sites, they just not in the same class.

Thank you again Mark and your team for our relaxing stay, looking forward to our next visit.

Reviewer: Td5boy 6 reviews from this member

 Loved this site. Easy to set up and superbly arranged. Peaceful, spacious and very well appointed. We spent five days at Lebberston and were very pleased with both location and facilities.

It's located just south of Scarborough and a little north of Filey, off the beaten track on the old Scarborough to Filey road.

If you're in this part of East Yorkshire, there is simply loads of things to see, from Whitby and the North York Moors the other side of Scarborough. There's also the don't miss Robin Hoods Bay. If you go west from the site you're heading towards Pickering and some charming Yorkshire villages. And of course south, you can head towards Bridlington. And if you do, don't miss old Bridlington and one of the largest town churches in the country.

Would we go again? A very definite yes!

Reviewer: Chucklejohn 2 reviews from this member

 Recently visited this site for the second time, expecting as good a welcome as before. How wrong could I be. Arrived 15mins early after a 4 hour drive, parked in waiting area which was empty. On going to reception was asked what I wanted, said I had booked a hard standing super pitch, wardens then looked at each other and one pointedly asked, is the pitch ready. Bearing in mind this is a gravel pitch, with no maintenance required, this was obviously meant as a sarcastic remark as I was a few minutes early. Not a great welcome. Was instructed down the hill on the left, told which two shower blocks to use.

Lots of vans, but not a soul about. Now obvious most of the vans here are static tourers, A new area has been developed for them, with a new hotel standard shower block ( we were not shown to this on arrival)

Obviously no longer a touring site, very few touring pitches. No childs play area apart from one grass area with a goal post, and a sign saying no kite flying.

Such a shame that financial return per pitch has overtaken the social/community spirit of a genuine touring site. 
Management response: Thank you for your review Chucklejohn. When we replied to your original post on Trip Advisor under the name JohnN, Norwich on 21st July 2017 we responded fully and honestly.

Following this reply you have also found it necessary to submit this additional review to UKCampsite.co.uk which ignores all points fully explained regarding our park and the provision of a peaceful and relaxing environment for everyone who visits us. We explained in detail and apologised for any offence caused by misconception of our warden’s question to her colleague. The important positive comment you previously made regarding the immaculate facilities we provide has been removed from your new UKCampsite.co.uk review.

In addition to your previous Trip Advisor review you also state here that there ‘was not a soul about’ however of the 51 regular touring pitches we have on the main part of our park, over your seven night stay with us, there were 30, 22, 23, 23, 25, 27, and on the last night 38 pitches occupied. This is in addition to some of the 54 seasonal pitches in this main area which were also occupied although, as they come and go as they please, we do not have figures for their nightly stays with us. As you stayed with us in June and previously in September, we assume you like to avoid very busy times which you did very successfully.

The amenity block you refer to is the one furthest away from the superpitch you were sited on and we are not in the habit of showing the most distant block away from guests as this would be inconvenient for most, however all three blocks are open to everyone and provide the same standard of facilities and cleanliness throughout.

We addressed your previous Trip Advisor comment regarding our open area provision for children to play in the middle of our park. Now in addition you also comment we have a notice here which does indeed request no kite flying. This was a suggestion from the previous park owner when we took over the business nearly 20 years ago as he had two instances that year where kites had come down on the top of caravans and punctured the skin of the unit and we are pretty sure that nobody would want this to happen to their pride and joy.

At Lebberston Touring Park we are pleased to welcome back the large majority of our lovely guests time after time. We are delighted they appreciate our warm Yorkshire welcome and hard work in the provision of Visit England five star, AA 4 pennant gold, multi-award winning accommodation for caravans, motorhomes and trailer tents which is shown in feedback here and on further review websites.
