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.

September 2020 Stay

Spent 5 nights here in September, the CL is very well kept, the grass kept well cut and Lorraine keeping the taps and waste points very well cleaned. It is a beautiful location, you just wouldn't tire of looking out over the fields towards Whitby with the Abbey and sea clearly visible. Bus route into Whitby and beyond from the village is very convenient and there are plenty of local walks from the site and a good local pub that serves a lovely Sunday roast. Great location for exploring surrounding local towns and villages, Goathland is well worth a visit. Lorraine was on site every morning cleaning and checking on guests and happy to advise or answer questions. Would definitely recommend a stay at this little gem of a site and hope we will be able to visit again in the future.

Wonderful site

We have just spent 6 nights on this wonderful site. Lorraine checks & cleans the fresh, waste & foul water points each day, checks that her guests are happy & is always helpful with advice. The pitches are cut between visitors with grass collected and the views of the Esk valley & out to sea are stunning. Easy access for Whitby, Moors & Sandsend/ Runcorn bay. Couldn't have wished for a better site & location.

Summer 2020 Staycation

We (very sadly) only had one night here as this loveky little CL gets very busy bookkings wise, so you need to book early. Its an all grass pitch site with EHU and several water points. Its very maintained and the owner marks your pitch on a board at the site entrance. The pitches are well marked with lots of room between them and they are rotated round so no one spot gets over used. There is a bus route right outside the site giving easy access to Whitby. Buses run every hour. For the more adventurous you can walk, or cycle (but remember its a long, steep hill coming back). We’ll definitely return to this little gem in the future

Simply brilliant

Fantastic views over rolling fields and valleys towards Whitby and the Abbey. Very well kept site and facilities. Allocated pitch on the blackboard made arrival quick and straightforward; followed by Lorraine’s friendly and informative welcome the following morning. The village pub is an easy walk and serves good wholesome Yorkshire fayre again with a friendly welcome. The site is well placed to visit the moors, the NYM steam railway and the coastal towns from Teesside south to Scarborough, all in easy reach. Simply brilliant. What’s not to like!,

A Gem in North Yorkshire

The site is a Gem in all sense of the word. Ease of access, peaceful, views, access to amenities, friendliness of owner, maintenance of the site, level pitches, the site has got it all. Now to the serious bits. Access the site from the Whitby side, if approaching from the Guisborough direction on the A171 continue down to the roundabout and come back on yourself towards Guisborough the road to Aislaby is then your first left. If going into Whitby use the park and ride parking in the centre of Whitby is difficult. If you have a liking for dressed crab then Sandgate Seafoods at 14 Sandgate Whitby are the best value for money. If fossil hunting then park in the Abbey Car park and walk to Saltwick Bay via the Caravan Holiday Park. In short this is a site not to be missed with access to the Sea, The Moors, The North York Steam Railway It is a site to which we will return, Thank you Lorraine and Frank for making us so welcome
