 Small and peaceful very well maintained site in absolutely stunning location next to the River Esk in Ruswarp.

Very helpful, friendly and informative owners.

Basic site with water and EHU. A 20 minute walk into Whitby down the footpath next to the river.

Can highly recommend this little gem and will definitely be back soon.

Reviewer: Robert 1 review from this member

 Great little site with a warm welcome from Janet the owner.

Great location on the edge of the River Usk with a 30 min walk via a number of spectacular routes into Whitby, or a 5 min train ride from Nearby Ruswarp station.

 Unlike the previous revue, that gave this Cs 1 out of 1. Its not its a fantastic little site, in a beautiful location, over looking the river esk.

Steam trains passing through and within easy walking distance of whitby.

Hard standing so no mud as previously moaned about in last revue.

Reviewer: Queencatifah 2 reviews from this member

 We were very unimpressed with this site. It had very poor waste disposal and water provision. After rain, the site was very muddy making it almost impossible to keep our caravan clean, as we have dogs.

The entrance was very tight. The site was no better than a small car park. We were also charged £19 per night when we expecting to pay a lot less. Because we were staying with friends who had made the booking we didn't say anything because we didn't want to cause a scene.

The village of Ruswarp is lovely. And the riverside walk to Whitby was very pleasant. But those are the only good comments we can leave about this site.

 We have been going here for 20 years now and that speaks for itself! Basic but picturesque, the owner Jean is very friendly and does everything she can to make sure your stay is the best it can be! Opposite the River Esk and the North Yorks Railway. We often walk the rail side path into Whitby which takes about 40 mins. The Bridge Inn about 5 mins walk is very welcoming and has fantastic ales and food.

 A lovely site with basic facilities.

Ideal location for Whitby. 20 minutes flat walk along railway line path. Ruswarp is a lovely village with pub, tearoom, boat hire, butchers.

Site itself is hard standing with stones. Sheltered and relatively quiet with some traffic noise from the road but not at nighttime.

You do need to stop in the road to open the gate and have a look first for which pitch your aiming for. We were in a tourer with no motor mover and this made positioning somewhat stressful as it’s a little tight to manoeuvre. Not a problem for motor homes or vans with motor movers. We unhitched and pushed into position. , we would return in the knowledge that this is what we would need to be prepared for.

Pitches were numbered and it was pretty self explanatory where to pitch and owner was very relaxed about it all.

I wouldn’t recommend for families with toddlers due to tidal stream running around site.

We would happily return again.

Reviewer: Craig H 3 reviews from this member

 On our arrival we picked a pitch as we weren't given a pitch number. Had to fill water tank with a few trips to the tap with a water carrier. Site small as its a CL site for 5 units. Next day we were welcomed with you on the wrong pitch move or leave!. Unless you given a specific pitch number how are we to know. On speaking to other users of the site they said they not always given number just to park where ever. The owner did apologies.

Should be 5 units not 6 !

Nice site, quiet and only 25 min walk to whitby alongside river and train track.

 Great little site friendly helpful owners, walk into whitby spot the seals on the esk, lovely place lots of nice countryside to wald or drive.

Bit of a steep approach to site from both sides of ruswarp, but easy to find and turn into located on river esk.
