Tidy little CL

Just back from a four night stay at this CL. On arrival, the owners, Maurice and Rita, weren't around, which was fine, as there is an arrivals board with your name, showing which pitch you have been allocated. We were mid set up when Maurice wandered over to welcome us. The pitches are gravel hard standings but as we like our awning to be on grass (it's horrid on your feet and uncomfortable for the dogs, in my view to be on gravel/hardcore), we had pitched towards the edge of the standing, so that our awning was on the grass. Maurice said that he would usually ask that caravans are positioned so that the awning is not on the grass, however, as the awning was almost fully up, he was not going to be asking us to move. He checked that we use a breathable groundsheet - we do- and allowed us to pitch the way we had chosen. Maurice and Rita are a lovely couple, friendly, warm and welcoming. They are always near by to help but are not intrusive. Maurice keeps the site immaculately presented. The grass is short and the clippings collected as he mows. The toilet/shower block is a portacabin at the bottom of the field, a single toilet and sink in one side, a toilet and shower in the other. Both were clean all the time we were there. Sadly, due to some visitor's over use of electricity, the couple have had to put pay meters in for electricity- but our four night stay used less than a pound per night, which is fine. I think if you are a heavy user (extra halogen heaters etc etc) it would cost you a lot more but we used all standard items - fridge, hot water, lights, kettle, toaster and thought the cost (which is set at the same tariff of domestic users, not inflated) wasn't excessive. If, like us, you are dog owners, it's useful to be aware that there are no off lead dog walks anywhere in the immediate locality. There are some quiet country lanes nearby but we found it a tad frustrating to have to take our dogs on road walks, on leads the whole time. There are two pubs within walking distance, at least one of them is dog friendly. Our holiday neighbours visited and were able to take the dogs in. We didn't eat there, our neighbours said that food was around £14 per main course. It depends where you are from as to whether you consider that good value or not. Access to local towns, Bridlington, Driffield, Malton and places such as Bempton Cliffs is easy from the site - though there is a lack of signage on some of the roads - so take your map! As to would we return? Well, we are the type of caravanners who rarely go back to the same site, so it's unlikely - but not because of the site, that's just how we like to do things. We usually choose Adult only sites, so for us, again a return visit wouldn't be on the cards as this is a family site. The difficulty in dog walking without driving somewhere is a downer for us too. That said, if this site ticks your needs boxes, then do go, you won't be disappointed, it's lovely.

Brilliant May Bank Holiday

Couldn’t have wished for a more friendly couple who run the site Maurice and Rita. Helpful and knowledgeable nothing was too much trouble. We even had weather on our side. Electric on a meter cost next to nothing for weekend. Will be back to see you soon and will definitely recommend to family and friends. Thanks again for a great weekend Mark and Sue pitch 1

What a fantastic weekend

Upon arrival we were greeted by the owner of this wonderful site where at the entrance, a sign with names of the people staying and which pitch you had been allocated introduced us to our fellow caravanners (nice touch). Now to the CL all marked out with large hard standing pitches with 16amp hookup which is on a meter but for the 4 days we were there we only put £4 in and left some on too so very reasonable I think not as other reviews stated. The owners of this site are also very knowledgeable of the area and full of useful info. Would we return ? That’s a deffinate yes and will do

Escape to the country

First of all the owners are lovely, couldn’t have been more helpful. It is a well laid out little site with gravel hardstanding pitches, grass a bit soggy but that is the season. Nothing is very far from your pitch. Electric hookup is supplied by a meter which takes £1 & £2 coins, we had our heating on low all the time as it was quite cold weather, used approx £6 for 24 hours. The shower room has a toilet and there is another separate toilet, all in a portacabin, there isn’t any heating in the portacabin. WiFi is available, small charge. We walked to the pub, The Star, excellent steak and accompaniments, perfectly cooked, cosy wood burners, warm welcome. There is another pub in the village both 15 minute walk.
