Why stay here ...

The 0.75 acre CL at East Leys is open all year and is sheltered by trees and hedges while still allowing views across the Yorkshire Wolds. The site is lawned and level and we are on a hill top of chalk beneath shallow soils giving the site excellent drainage. We have a shower and toilet for the exclusive use of the CL.

There is drinking water at 3 points around the site, as well as an additional dedicated water supply at the waste point. The electric hook-ups are 16 amps and electricity is included along with vehicle, awning (if used) and 2 people in the pitch fee.

We are only 3 miles from the town of Bridlington with the typical range of shops and supermarkets as well as the usual seaside attractions. The Spa Theatre hosts a variety of impressive events and performances throughout the year. The Bridlington Priory and Bayle Museum are part of the historic Old Town with tea rooms and antique shops. Within 5 miles you can find sandy beaches, sailing, boat and fishing trips, game & coarse fishing, Bempton RSPB Reserve, Sewerby Hall, indoor swimming pool and leisure entre, golf courses, The John Bull Rock Factory, Bondville Model Village and Bridlington Birds of Prey and Animal Park.

The cities of York and Hull, and towns including Driffield, Scarborough, Beverley, Filey and Whitby as well as access to the North Yorkshire Moors and Howardian Hills (around Castle Howard) are all within an hour's drive of the site. Burton Agnes Hall, Sledmere Hall, Scarborough Castle and Whitby Abbey will please those interested in history, while those wanting a faster pace of life can enjoy Flamingoland Resort (theme park with rollercoasters) and Beverley Racecourse, both also reached within the hour.

Although East Leys is primarily an arable farm (wheat, barley, potatoes, oilseed rape) we do keep a few sheep, goats and chickens - free range eggs are on sale when available. We have two ponies, Buzz and Dinky and we can't forget Stanley the dog.

A skydiving club also operates at weekends and on Fridays in the summer. As well as the opportunity to skydive (please contact Skydive GB directly) it also has a cafe and bar although opening hours depend on the number of skydivers present (usually determined by the weather).

Dogs on leads are welcome and there is a dog walk from the site through the woods and/or along the farm drive.

Mixed reviews

East Leys Farm
This site is beautiful, well kept, quiet, secluded, away from road noise and should be a pleasure to stay at. The shower/ toilet facilities were open, basic but clean, there was a lack of cleaning materials re Covid. We personally found the site not very welcoming. We didn’t get a warm welcome from the host and felt unwelcome throughout our stay. Efforts were made by us to speak to the hosts but it wasn’t reciprocated. The dog walk needs a little attention, this was essentially a walk around the edges of a crop field/ woods which meant very wet feet/ legs, lots of flies and no poo bins. I would say this site accepts dogs but isnt “dog friendly.” Overall a lovely site if you want a total switch off and good value for money.

Wonderful CL

East Leys Farm
What a lovely CL! We stayed for 3 nights last week as we were lucky to ring last minute and they had a cancellation. Its a great, flat field, very clean and tidy with nice short grass. 3 water taps to serve the 5 pitches so youre never far from one. Sharon gave us a warm welcome and showed us to our pitch, by the apple tree, looking over the ponies and goats in the paddock. The woodland dog walk on site was just great too and a lot of effort put in to make it nice. I can't comment on the toilet/showers as they are understandably closed due to the pandemic. Please note, the price is currently £15 per night not £17 as stated on this website. Great location for visiting Brid, Filey, Flamborough and beyond!

A lovely site

East Leys Farm
We managed to get a pitch due to a cancellation and we were so lucky. It is a lovely site and the owners were very friendly and welcoming even though we all had to take care and follow the rules because of Covid. It is also peaceful and easy to visit places in the area. We enjoyed our stay and will be going back again.

God's country

East Leys Farm
This is an exceptional site run by a friendly couple We only left the place today and it was clear this is a "Repeat booking" site, as all the caravanning families here visited regularly. Nothing was too much trouble for owners Robin and Sharon. The location was idyllic and a quiet, well ordered site, set well back from the road guaranteed a peaceful holiday. The shower issue mentioned has now been resolved (As mentioned by a previous reviewer) We will go back soon without hesitation. Highly recommended to anyone considering this location.Thankyou so much again

Well worth a visit!

East Leys Farm
We found this to be a well run, neat and tidy CL. It was lovely and quiet and the lawn was well trimmed. The toilet and shower were clean and well appointed. The site was full most of the time we were there but the layout ensured that no-one was too close. The CL was close enough to Bridlington, Filey and Bempton to cycle. We had some glorious weather and had a great time. We would book again. Overall good value.
