 We were visiting family so it was a base to sleep

Friendly staff, bar travellers rest was nice and prices were very good

Showers and toilets clean and heating, which was a bonus.

This is really for seasonal pitches 110, for tourers/motorhomes there is only 10.

It's a secure site so no-one can get in without a card.

Electricity is included in the daily rate

Always took the dog Bella for a walk round the site. Some caravan were set out lovely. Other should be ashamed, it brings the tone down

All in all if I was looking for a seasonal pitch it would have a great atmosphere as everyone is friendly, polite and helpful

 Friendly reception and introduction to this site.

The facilities were clean but not up to the modern standards of some sites.

This was reflected in the price, which included £5 worth of electricity (ample for our stay).

There is a bar which we did not visit, so cannot comment. Happy to stay there when visiting friends who live nearby.

Short drive to the coast / moors and various pubs and restaurants.

The site was quiet but we were not there in school holidays!

Reviewer: BettietheBurstner 2 reviews from this member

 Excellent site, the staff are down to earth and work hard, facilities were spotless.

Pitch was big enough for an awning and we were right across from the office and the on site bar Travellers Rest, we didn't manage to go in this time but will definitely go in on our next stay.

The site is definitely family oriented and very dog friendly, plenty of outdoor seating for those wishing to sit outside the bar.

Only grumble really was lack of wifi but hey we weren't there to look at our phones and it just seems to be a signal dead zone. Which is nothing to do with the site.

Ideal location to visit Redcar and Saltburn on sea, We really enjoyed our stay and many thanks again for your hospitality.

 My first visit to Margrove Park and I was surprised at how big the site is. Generally I don't like big sites but Margrove is very different.

Almost all of the pitches are seasonal and there is only a handful of touring pitches. This means there is a great community spirit and the site is actually very quiet, at least when we were there.

The toilets block seems mostly used by the touring pitches. It is extremely clean and well appointed. The shower cubicles themselves are a little small and low but there is both a wet and dry area in each. They are clean, free and plenty of hot water. No fiddly buttons to keep pressing either.

My only gripe is that the lighting is on a timer - you press the button when you go in and the lights stay on for a set period and then turn off. That period wasn't long enough for me to use the loo, have a shave, shower and dry - they went off as I was drying. Fortunately it was daytime so there was enough light to see by, but at night could be dangerous.

My suggestion would be to press the button again before getting in the shower, then all should be good! That's really the only thing I could complain about.

The site staff could not be friendlier. Great sense of humour, helpful and really made our visit fun! There is a bar on site which is clean and friendly, again with great staff.

Whilst we were there a chap turned up each day with a food trailer, serving burgers, teas, coffees etc and on the Sunday a full Sunday lunch for £5!

The location is handy for travelling around the North Yorkshire moors and is close to the seaside towns of Saltburn, Runswick Bay as well as not being far from Whitby.

It's only a few minutes to Guisborough where there is a good selection of shops and is also a pleasant town to visit. Plenty of country pubs in the area

Prices when we visited were great value at £20 per night of which £5 is for electricity. If you go over the £5 then you need to purchase more at the office but it is unlikely you'd go over that.

There is also a £10 refundable deposit for the gate, with sensor pads either side. This gives a decent level of security

All in all this is a great site, with great staff, excellent facilities and in a great location.

We'll definitely be coming back!

 Recently visited Margrove caravan site after reading good reviews on here about it and had high expectations! Oh how I was in for a shock!

Now I'm not a snob let me just make that clear but this site was like a council estate on wheels!

What with screaming kids at all hours and drunks next door to us arguing, music blaring and dogs barking in to the early hours it was definitely an eye opener!

The reviews I had read on here said that the toilets/ shower facilities were" immaculate" yet when I used them on the morning there was tissue all over the floor, the sinks looked like they hadn't been cleaned in days and a lump of faeces in the shower cubicle!

Well I'm sorry if that's they're idea of immaculate I'd hate to see dirty!

The butty van selling food and Parmos were absolutely rotten the worst £6. 50 I've ever spent!

The only good thing about the site was the pub as it was a lovely pint and reasonably priced!

All in all I would give it a 4/10 and that's been kind but for £20 a night you get what you pay for I guess

 Stayed at Margrove Holiday park as an overnight stay when walking the Cleveland Way.

Simon the site manager was very helpful. I lost my mobile phone on the days walk!

Felt welcome and safe (lone female).

Facilities clean, nice hot showers and price very reasonable.

Reviewer: JZHarrison 1 review from this member

 This was a very pleasant 2 night stay. Right from the friendly welcome and the help to leave early on our departure date (they came in early to open the gate for us) it was very good stay and good value for money.

The shower/toilet block was good and clean, the pitch we had was hardstanding and level and the site itself well maintained. There were limited touring pitches as there are a lot of seasonal, permanent and stored caravans so that is probably a good recommendation. The site felt very secure.

A bonus is the friendly bar on site but if you want to go further afield then there is a welcoming pub about three quarters of a mile away that serves some good beer and food. There is also a regular bus service(s) from the road outside.

Overall a good stay and value for money.

 A friendly and secure site. Warden controls the barrier and can see all visitors to the site which is comforting.

The toilet/shower block is clean and showers are free to use I read an earlier review about toilet roll but the toilet roll was provided when we were there.

There is a small bar on site although we did not use as it is not dog friendly although there are seats outside we could have sat at with the dogs had the weather been better. Lots of seasonal pitches and storage on site.

There is no shop nearby but if you are willing to travel a few miles into Guisborough there is everything like Morrisonís, Cafe Nero, Costa, and lots of independents to name a few. It is a lovely market town.

There are a few beaches within reach Redcar, Saltburn, Whitby, Scarborough.

If you like walking you can also find some great places to hike.

Flamingoland Theme Park & Zoo is approx 30 miles away if you have children.

There is no WiFi fir the older children and as the site is based just under Birkbrow the signal isnít great our phones were only working on 3G.

Itís a site to relax on.

I havenít rated the site on child friendly as we had no children and I didnít see a play area but there were children on bikes playing on site. There is a playground in the village if you want a little walk.
