Why stay here ...

Our CL site is set on the East Yorkshire coast at the site of Mr Moo's ice cream parlour, half a mile from the village of Skipsea. The CL  is an Adults Only site. There are 2 grass pitches and 3 hardstanding pitches with electric hook ups and part surrounded by shrubs and trees. There is a shower/toilet block available for members to use.

We ask that during your stay you do not use groundsheets. There is a dog walk with direct access to the beach starting from Mr Moo's cafe. We do ask that dogs are kept on leads at all times whilst on the site as we are a working farm. A request bus stop is available from outside the site. The village boasts a pub and post office/shop. Further afield within 5 miles are supermarkets, restaurants and takeaways. Fishing is available directly from the beach, and coarse fishing within a mile. Nearest golf course is less than a mile.

The site is an excellent base from which to explore the Yorkshire Wolds, Holderness whilst further afield are the historic cities/towns of York, Beverley and Hull, whilst along the coast are the seaside resorts of Bridlington, Hornsea, Filey, Scarborough and Whitby. We are also within an hour's drive of the North Yorkshire Moors with its steam railway and open moorland.

Mr Moo's ice cream parlour offers homemade ice creams, breakfasts, light lunches, cake, ice cream sundaes together with tea and coffee.

There is a small seasonal touring site adjacent to the CL which may have children present.

NB: Please report to ice cream parlour on arrival before siting your van.

We spent a lovely week here had a great time. Perfectly level site on hard standing a nice walk to the sea the road was a little noisy and we could hear people visiting the ice cream parlour didn't worry us and the ice was delicious and staff were lovely.We were welcomed and given a map of the site and shown where the toilets and shower were which were very good and free.Would recommend the site to anyone..

Adults only lovely site with added bonus of ice cream right next door!

We stayed here over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend and had a wonderful time. Only the 3 hard standing pitches were in use due to the really wet weather and there was no one on the rally field next door so the site was lovely and quiet. We were greeted on arrival and shown where the toilet's and shower were and where to pitch. All pitches are flat and have EHU. There were a lot of rabbit holes in the trees which was lovely watching them come and go with our morning cuppa.The shower is electric and has adjustable temperature so you could have it as hot or cold as you like and didn't have the awful push button to keep the water flowing. The toilet's and shower were always immaculate and well looked after. From your pitch there is a lovely 10 minute walk to the beach but due to the bad weather this was closed as part of it had flooded but we did manage to walk down on our first day. The blokes even managed some sea fishing from the beach there and also at Skipsea. There is a good tackle shop in Skipsea and the owner has great knowledge of fishing in the area if you like to fish. The site also is attached to Mr Moo's ice cream parlour which can cause havoc if your on a diet with so many mouth watering flavours to try and it being literally on your caravan doorstep. From the site you have easy access to the surrounding area. There is so many places nearby to visit within a short drive. Flamborough, Bempton and Bridlington to name just a few. We will definitely be returning. All in all a great CL.

If you like ice cream, this is a treat!

We visited for a weekend in September. I phoned to say we would be arriving a bit late and, due to traffic it was after 5:30pm when we got there. The gate was open so we could pull into the car park, but that was because there was a caravan rally in the next field and they were expecting late arrivals. There was no-one to welcome us or any indication of where we should go - I ended up asking one of the other caravanners, who showed me where the CL site was. Other sites we've visited have put out a board with a message to welcome us and direct us where to go if the owners can't be there. The pitch was fine - flat and spacious. Apparently there are toilets but we didn't find them. Fortunately this wasn't an issue as we are self contained in our motorhome. There is s great walk from the site to the beach. We were really shocked by the amount of coastal erosion that has taken place since we last visited Skipsea 30 years ago. The ice cream parlour was popular and is worth a visit.
