Why stay here ...

Poverty Cottage CL site is set within the North Yorkshire Moors National Park with magnificent views of the Yorkshire coast, a peaceful 3 van site with the charms of Whitby and Robin Hood's Bay nearby. Close to the Cleveland Way coastal path and the disused railway line that ran from Whitby to Robin Hoods Bay making it perfect for walkers.

2 miles from Whitby you can wake up to the amazing view of Whitby Abbey.

Explore the charms of Whitby or just a short drive away to the picturesque Robin Hood's Bay, Runswick Bay and Staithes with beautiful beaches.

Heading out of Whitby the Esk Valley full of woodlands, pretty waterfalls and pleasant dales that sweep up to the open moors. The village of Goathland, made famous by the Heartbeat series, is also a short drive away through the stunning landscape and nearby at Grosmont, a ride can be enjoyed on the nostalgic steam train line to Pickering, one of the most scenic preserved lines in Britain.

Close by the villages of Hawsker and Stainsacre both have pubs serving excellent food.

Our 2nd visit

We visited this great site again last week for 3 nights. Jo and Stu are really friendly and helpful and if you are lucky enough to get a pitch you won't be disappointed. Ideally situated for Whitby and an excellent starting point if you fancy the return Cleveland way walk to Robin Hood's Bay. Also it's a great base for exploring the Yorkshire Moors.

Lovely little site

Thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night December stay here. Wonderful and wide ranging views including hills, sea and abbey. It is a little exposed when it's windy but that's a price worth paying. Good hard standing and nice new facilities. Easy access to coast path and into Whitby. Couldn't really fault it. Thank you.

Abbey coming again

What a beautiful site. So close to Whitby and yet so wonderfully exposed to nature (well there were 50mph winds when we arrived). Jo and Stu are very friendly and extremely helpful. I had a problem with my car and the issues that caused us would have been far worse if it wasn't for the help of Jo and Stu. We recommend this place completely and if you manage to book a slot then you're in for a real treat.

Great Site

Found this great site just outside Whitby. Its the kind of place that you are tempted not to share so that you can have it all to yourself!!. Its well situated with easy access. Nice walks from the site. and great views. The owners really do offer a warm welcome and look after the place

Just perfect

There is not a lot more one can say which has not been already said. It really is a gem of a site. I think what makes this site stand out is the owners they are really caring friendly people , nothing is too much trouble. If I can book in the future I would but I don’t think I will get a chance now with all these positive reviews, damn.
