First venture of 2021

The Hawthornes
We chose The Hawthornes as the place to be for our first ex lockdown trip of 2021 and have to say that the week just isn’t long enough The site is easily reached being just off the main road - there is a little traffic noise but nothing at all to concern as it’s only mainly at the usual rush hour times. A true and proper CL with plenty of space for the allowed 5 vans - the pitches are not marked so you can choose the spot you want (within reason) and position your unit in the orientation you like. You will need some levelling blocks if you have a longish unit as the site does slope away but it’s again nothing too bad - managed to level our 27’ van. The field is all grass and really well drained and it’s only a short wander to the water point which is situated away from grey and toilet disposal area Toilets were very clean and kept clean - there is plenty of hot water for hand washing and sanitiser for the surfaces you touch provided to keep everyone safe. There is even a choice of home made preserves for sale (excellent!) but we missed out on the coconut cake :( Plenty of room for dog exercise on the fields behind or walking around the area We liked it so much we have rebooked for our next stay. Paula and John keep the place just as it should be. Hope that the traction engine might be having an outing next time we are there!!

Great location, but probably not suited to a long motorhome

The Hawthornes
We have a 7.4metre motorhome. We stayed at The Hawthornes for three nights, which was fine, but we could not get level even with automatic levelling, so I guess it would be impossible with ramps. Some road noise, but only really intrusive morning and evening. Toilets were clean every time we used them. We didn’t use the shower so can’t comment. Perfect location for exploring this area. Short walk along a back road to the local shop (at the services). Tea shop in village - excellent scones and sandwiches! Good meal at The Middleton Arms. 30 minute walk into Pickering, with all it’s attractions, including steam railway. On a bus route, but we didn’t use so can’t comment on it. We walked from the site up into the beautiful countryside around. We couldn’t locate Mrs Appleby to pay, so we put the money in an envelope through the letterbox.

Weeks break

The Hawthornes
We had a similar experience to a previous review. The owner of the campsite was busy with her horse and we weren’t able to pay until the next day. We chose this campsite as it had the added advantage of a shower and toilet and although the shower was always lovely and hot we were extremely disappointed that in our seven nights stay the toilets were not cleaned at all and the bin was also not emptied. The toilet seat was broken, there was a bucket and mop outside to wash the floor after showering but again this was not changed and was full of muddy water. We feel that this has let the campsite down and we can’t understand why they have these facilities but are not prepared to keep them clean? On a positive note, the area is lovely and we enjoyed lots of walks and cycling.

Warm welcome chilly weather

The Hawthornes
We picked a cold but sunny fortnight at this great site the views over the Vale of Pickering are excellent. Paula was a fabulous host. The shower and loo are good and kept clean the extra loo is always a bonus. I have only taken off 1 point on peace and tranquility because of slight road noise but it didn't spoil our stay. Many places to visit and all within easy reach. Hope to visit again.

Lovely week

The Hawthornes
OK we managed to pick a week of glorious April weather which always helps, but we really enjoyed our week’s stay at The Hawthornes. We sited ourselves as we had been advised to do if the owners were out. We saw Paula the next day and were made welcome. Yes the site slopes and long caravans may have an issue with levelling. Our 5m van was OK. The facilities we found were fine, very clean toilet. We didn’t try the shower, our caravan has a perfectly good one. Our daughter stayed a night at Paula’s b&b and for £7.50 each, we joined her for a massive English cooked breakfast, recommended!! Easy to pay by bank transfer for site and b&b fees. The on site WiFi is free but speed drops noticeably at evening time. Both EE and 3 coverage was good. TV was better if the NE was tuned in (Feeeview) but local weather forecast was more specific to Scarborough and north. Others have mentioned road noise. The EHU points are at the top of the field and this is where most folk pitch up. Yes, there is road noise as would be expected from Google Earth research prior to booking but it didn’t really bother us and we did sit out occasionally as it was warm. We would be happy to return there.
