Weeks break

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

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

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.

Few days break

On arrival owner was grooming horse of which she said she might be on phone earlier. She said we could go and pitch up, weren’t told were to fill up with water as we have a motorhome. We pitched up and eventually found water. Levelling blocks definitely needed. We tried to find owner all afternoon, welcome procedurewas none extinctant. We finally found her, grooming her horses and paid our site fees, once found her she was very friendly. We stayed 3 nights, the toilets and shower was not cleaned in this time. I feel this lets the club down. I couldn’t wait to move in to our next stop, to be clean. Road is very close by and no mention of it on website, was very noisy at times, which spoilt the views and peace and quiet. We had a good few days walking and cycling into Pickering and surrounding areas. The weather was very kind to us.

Friendly cl

Stayed 2 nights 17th and 18th June, our first visit. Owners son gave us a very warm welcome, showed us to our pitch and the facilities. Levelling blocks definately required. Road noise did not really trouble us. Paula  friendly and helpful. Do try her home made jam, it is really nice. Enjoyed the animals especially the piglets. We have 2 collie dogs who also enjoyed their stay and walks in the area.
