Why stay here ...
Monks Farm Caravan and Motorhome Site.
A small gem of a CL site, idyllically located on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park with stunning views of the coast and Whitby Abbey. This site provides an ideal base for exploring the nearby seaside town of Whitby, the Yorkshire coast and surrounding beautiful countryside.
The site is situated in the small village of Sneaton, 3 miles by road from Whitby. Within the village, there is an ice-cream farm with cafe and traditional pub, The Wilson Arms - offering a warm welcome and a range of hearty meals, both a very short walk away.
There are many countryside walks from the village itself. Directly from the site is the ancient ‘Monks Walk’ where stone flags were originally laid by the monks at the Abbey. These lead down into the woods below the site, over streams and down into Ruswarp. The path continues and leads into Whitby.
Also in Ruswarp, is the River Esk, where fishing is possible by permit or you can take a peaceful trip along the river by hiring a wooden rowing boat.
There are many other places to explore and walk nearby including, Maybecks, Falling Foss waterfall, numerous moorland villages as well as the local beaches or coastal villages of Robin Hood’s Bay and Sandsend.
If cycling is what you like, there are many quiet country lanes to explore which connect you to the different villages within the National Park. Alternatively, ideal for young families, there is the old railway line, a traffic free cycle track, running from Whitby to Ravenscar and beyond. Dalby Forest is 30 minutes drive away which offers various graded levels of cycle and walking trails.
For further afield day trips there are endless possiblilities including the towns of Scarborough, Pickering, Guisborough, Middlesbrough and the city of York, all accessible by car or bus from Whitby. There are also train links to Middlesbrough and the Esk Valley from Whitby Station or the nearby village of Ruswarp. The steam train also runs from Whitby on the picturesque journey along the North Yorkshire Moors Railway travelling through Grosmont, Goathland then on to Pickering.
As the name suggests the site at Monks Farm is situated on our family run mixed working farm where we rear cattle, sheep and grow a variety of cereal crop. The site offers the tranquility of the coast and country without being in the hustle and bustle of the town although this is no compromise, as Whitby can be easily accessed without venturing out by car but instead by foot, bike or hopping on the bus or train at Ruswarp.
Our site offers five all year around hard standing pitches with electric hook up, each with their own view across green fields, to the sea and Whitby Abbey.
We will look forward to welcoming you soon.
