Lovely Peaceful CL

This was a lovely CL for us. Grass was short, views were lovely. Site is surrounded by countryside yet only a few miles from lovely local beaches on one side (Staithes, Runswick Bay, Sandsend and Whitby and moors on the other side. Easy to level the caravan. Good TV signal for BBC channels but could not get ITV. Site is large enough and reasonably priced. The toilet waste emptying is a short walk away down a hill so we tended not to wait till it was too full. We have a reactive dog so were concerned about previous comments regarding wandering dog. The comments are fairly old and I can say there were no issues with a farm dog. There was a dog which stayed with the farmer/in the farm house a little way away from the site. There was never any dog wandering alone and no dog entered the caravan pitching area (other than dogs with caravanners). The entrance track is a single lane but it is not very long. We were leaving late afternoon so to avoid any issues my partner just walked up to the top of the lane to check there was nothing approaching then I set off. The site road is extremely quiet so it is highly unlikely you will meet another van entering/leaving. However, at the top of the lane the main road is straight with good visibility so no issues if you did have to wait for another van leaving the lane. The farmer was very helpful if needed but not at all intrusive. We are so pleased we tried this site and will definitely be back.

What CL's are all about.

If you want a quiet location, with sea views and convenient access to the lovely North Yorkshire coast, then this CL is perfect.

Great value bog-standard site!

Bog-standard site in pleasant surroundings with friendly owner. Fresh laid barn eggs at a very reasonable price too! Would like to have seen more of the fantastic view through the hedge - perhaps some of the bushes could be thinned? The member giving the negative review seems to have gone unfairly over the top - we found the dog friendly enough - however, it did foul the site, and marked it's territory up the side of one of our plastic chairs! The owner did make some effort to keep it away, but it needs to be fenced in somewhere when the CL is occupied.

Wonderful place to be.

Just thought we needed to say that the farmer was in complete ignorance of the derogatory post left regarding his dog. Surely it was only fair for the person complaining to approach him so that he could take appropriate measures. We have just returned from a glorious week here and there was no evidence of a trailing water pipe. We also have two dogs and Laddie (the villain in question) visited us, usually twice a day, for a energetic game of fetch without any aggression whatsoever. As for the lack of amenities, what do people expect for £5.50 a night?
