Why stay here ...

The CL is open from Easter - September approximately.

Smugglers Rock CL is a quiet site set in a field adjacent to our B and B. In the surrounding fields are a variety of chickens, Shetland ponies and highland cattle. We are located in the small coastal village of Ravenscar in the North York Moors National Park. Visitors can enjoy the stunning views of the surrounding countryside and sea from close by. The site is set on a 1 acre field and pitches are lawned and well spaced.

New for 2019 - Serviced pitches (electric hook up, water and grey water disposal) and plenty of space for awnings.

Well-behaved dogs (max. 2) and children are welcome at the site. Maximum of 5 people (including children) in each unit.

Sorry but we are unable to accept any large motorhomes over 7.5 metres.

We are 10 miles from Scarborough, 12 miles from Whitby and Robin Hoods Bay, and close to the North York Moors villages including Pickering, Grosmont and Goathland ('Heartbeat' country). All of these destinations are easily accessible from the site. We are also ideally situated for walking and cycling along the beautiful Yorkshire coastline. The coast to coast walk and the Cleveland Way both run through the village as does the old railway line from Scarborough to Whitby which is now a popular walkway. There is a limited local bus service (not Sundays) across the road which serves Scarborough. There are several good pubs within 5 miles, which offer great food, and the nearest beach access to the site is 2 miles.

Also available for non-camping family members are our three cosy self-catering cottages available for holiday lets and our B and B.

Online availability and booking can be done through our Website.

Perfect

Lovely location, peaceful, well spaced, beautifully kept CL field. Each pitch has its own grey water drain and water supply and EHU. WiFi is true super fast broadband connection. Absolutely perfect.

Fantastic fully serviced site

We booked here last minute. The process was easy through their online booking system. When we arrived we just drove in a pitched up at our chosen spot. We didn't see the owners until our last day but that suited us just fine -- we were happy not to be disturbed with CL site owners knocking on the door asking for money! Truly felt like we were in touch with nature. Views were wonderful and it is situated perfectly for trips to Whitby, Scarborough and Robin Hood's Bay. The nearby Cinder Track is a great walk. When we head back to the East coast, we will be checking in here again for sure. WiFi was only an extra pound a night too. The perfect CL site for us.

Glorious CL site with stunning scenery

Stayed here for 6 nights and would definitely go back. Site is immaculate and despite being high up with wonderful views it seemed sheltered from the wind. For cyclists there the cinder track cycle path is nearby with easy access to miles of off road cycling and almost exactly half way between Scarborough and Whitby it is remote whilst still in easy reach of places to visit. The owners were really friendly and welcoming and we can't recommend this site enough. As usual I've created a short video which can describe the site much better than I can with words feel free to watch it here. https://youtu.be/BL0MKwUNJcc

Just what a CL should be

We had the pleasure of staying for a week in September 2017 at Smugglers Rock and it exceeded our expectation. Booking was easy and the information which arrived via email was comprehensive and detailed. By following the directions given we found the site easily and were delighted with it. All pitches look out towards the sea, the site is situated on a quiet country lane and all the services are to hand. Fabulous dog walks from the site either onto the moors behind, along the cinder path to Robin Hood's Bay or along the beach...spoilt for choice! Don't forget to visit the seal colony below Ravenscar when you visit! The WiFi works extremely well and there is a good 4G phone signal and excellent TV reception. Sharon and Mike are wonderful hosts and make you feel extremely welcome! Smugglers Rock also does accommodation and so we were able to enjoy a couple of days with non-caravanning family when they came to join us but staying in the B&B. It's just a shame the CL is closed during the winter otherwise we would be back again during the quieter time on our own CL. Thanks Sharon & Mike....we will be back! Best regards Nicola (Skybarn Farm CL)
