Why stay here ...

Abbey View CL site is situated overlooking the beautiful rolling hills and countryside of the Esk valley and towards Whitby. This new site is quiet and level with space to enjoy a relaxed vacation and the grass is lawned regularly. Please note breathable groundsheets only and lift daily to preserve grass pitches.

The village pub is about 8 minutes walk with good food and friendly staff. We are near to Whitby, North Yorks Moors steam railway and Heartbeat country. There is plenty of opportunity for walkers to enjoy a network of footpaths within the National Park and the Tourist Information Centre in Whitby has a varied selection of walks for you to choose from. The bus runs hourly through the village past the CL site and goes to Whitby, other coastal villages and ends its journey in Scarborough; for those wanting a days shopping in a large town the bus also goes from Whitby to Middlesbrough. The park and ride is only a couple of minutes away.

Dogs are welcome but we would ask that you please keep them on a lead on site, not allow them to foul the CL and please exercise them off site for the benefit of all.

Please note that we have 8 pitches but only use 5 at any one time. This is because we have a rotation system whereby we rest certain pitches when they are looking tired.

Superb,

Very clean site with fantastic views, very little levelling required and the grass is mown to perfection, local bus runs past the site with frequent buses to Whitby, Scarborough, Middlesbrough, the owner Lorraine is very helpful on the day we were to return the wind was blowing at 40 plus mph not wishing to tow the caravan across the moors Lorraine moved things around to enable us to stay one more night, this is a site we will return to,

Excellent CL site

We have just returned from our first stay at Abbey View CL site. It is a fantastic site, easy access, plenty of space, maintained to a very high standard, beautiful views and a very warm welcome. We fully recommend a stay at Abbey View, and we will be returning.

Fantastic!

Fantastic! One of the largest CL's we have ever stayed on. A really good footpath at bottom of site for dog walking. We saw hares and deer in the stubble fields next to the site. Well organised site with pitch allocated and very little levelling required. Very good value for money.

Well Kept

Just back from a week on this lovely CL. It's difficult to add to the previous comprehensive reviews by "Wherenext" and "CaroleJay", suffice to say that it is a very well managed site, owner very friendly and accommodating. Plenty of places of interest, obviously Whitby for the statutory fish and chips to be "shared" with the over friendly seagulls. Thankfully we were not attacked. We managed to visit 3 NT and 4 English Heritage properties. North Yorks steam railway including the station at Goathland for Harry Potter fans and the village itself at Goathland for Heartbeat fans. For cyclists and walkers there's plenty of routes including the cinder track between Whitby and Scarborough. If you want totally clear views of the valley and the Abbey would suggest you ask if the pitches furthest from the road end of the field are available. Happy to recommend and would visit again.

On top of the World

...or so it seemed. If you are looking for a CL with a panoramic view then this is the site for you. There are 2 pitches that allow you to look down towards the silhouette of Whitby Abbey with the other 3 looking over the valley. Whichever you are allocated you will have a splendiferous view. The CL is grassed, mostly flat, with just the odd tweaking that may be necessary, although the distance between outfits means you should be able to find a level pitch. It is extremely well looked after and all the necessary points are well signed and very clear. There are waste bins for recycling. The previous reviewers have mentioned the village with its pub which is well frequented and we have seen the bus stop right outside the site to let a couple of members off. The buses are very regular and seem to go to Whitby and beyond to Scarborough or to Middlesborough. It is a very peaceful site but quite open to the elements and you may find an awning more trouble than it's worth if high winds arrive. There is a local Park and Ride about 800 yards away, but you will have to walk on grass verges to get there if not using your vehicle. If you want hardstanding then I suggest you book the owners other site at Toft Farm which has 2 hardstanding pitches. All in all a wonderful place to enjoy the delights this part of the world provides and a must to return to. Price at the time of visit was £13 per night and includes a small porch awning, same price without. Larger awnings face a £4 p.n. charge, although I am unsure if this is on top of the £13 p.n. fee or if it is £11 plus £4. Best ask the owner when booking.
