Jiffy the motorhome

Gatehouse Farm
Just visited this lovely site. We had the site to ourselves. Three sheep in the bottom field and a horse in the one behind. Great quiet roads to walk along leading to some lovely public footpaths and bridleways. Bus stop on the main road every hour in both directions to Bridlington and Hull. We visited Driffield and Beverley where there were some lovely shops and beautiful canal walks. Beverley has a market on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Walked to the next village along the main road to visit their Spar, which had everything you could need, and walked back using the country lanes. Hosts were lovely and made us very welcome. Will definitely return.

Super Site

Gatehouse Farm
We stayed here in August for ten days, and what a lovely site. It is very simple, no frills. It is a fairly level meadow that has the pitches mowed in the grass so in between the grass is left natural and it is delightful.There are a few apple trees on the one perimeter. All in all a wildlife haven, we saw owls, rabbits, buzzards. The furthest end of the campsite has super open views over arable land, or you can choose the end nearer the gate and country lane which is more sheltered. You can hear the road at times but it is a country lane leading for a Nature Reserve at Tophill Low (3 miles down lane - 20 min cycle ride - lovely place to visit especially if you are a bird fan and a bargain) and farms/stables so not excessive. Also, you can hear the trains as near to railway line but not intrusive. The main Beverley/Driffield road is about 10/15 minute walk up the country lane through Watton with footpaths for most of it, from here regular buses go to Beverley/Hull in one direction and Driffield/Bridlington the other way. Or alternatively you can go Hutton Cranswick (either main road as footpath or footpath across livestock fields from back of Watton Abbey) which is about 2.5-3 miles away and get the regular train service from this village. Also in this village is superb butchers - Whites, a Spar shop, good pub White Horse with spot on food, excellent farm shop with cafe as well as another cafe in the garden centre. Mr.Fillingham made us feel very welcome, and was charming and very easy going.The only thing to note is that you need cross the country lane and walk a small distance along it to to use CDP located next to the farm house, but we did not find it a problem - in fact you can walk further on some Club sites to get to the CDP.

Great site.. recommended!

Gatehouse Farm
Stayed here for 3 nights on the weekend of the Driffield Steam Rally. Ideal spot and only 10 minutes drive to the showground. Couldn't fault it! Grass was short, lovely big pitches and owners very friendly and helpful! Lovely sunset! Will return.

Practical base for East Yorkshire

Gatehouse Farm

I chose the CL at Gatehouse Farm because I needed to be in Beverley... without actually being in Beverley. The directions in the book are pretty accurate and the access is good.  Approach roads have no shocks or surprises. The site facilities are good, hookups are well spaced and the "tall" water tap is provided with a helpful crate to permit the filling of an aquaroll without the need for a hose.  The toilet sluice is a bit of a walk... about 250m from the furthest hook up to the disposal point. 'Phone reception for 3 was good and O2 was a bit patchy.  Data was very slow but SMS was quick and 'phone calls were passably good. I didn't try the TV or the radio during my stay - but its flat there (only 6 feet above sea level) to the signal should have no obstructions.             Howard was an amiable host and had lots of helpful advice about local shops, fish and chips, etc. I spent most of my stay in Beverley at the folk festival (June 2015) and its about 15 minutes drive to there on a bad day.  Driffield (10 min north) has practical resources like fuel and a supermarket.  Beverley has a very prosperous feel to it...  a bit too lively for me in the evening (all hen parties and bouncers).  It is architecturally interesting and a bit more sedate during the day. Hornsea is a pretty resort with a nostalgic 50's sort of a feel and there are many pretty little villages dotted around on the Wolds.
