Why stay here ...

A great caravan site in North Yorkshire, Scarborough West Ayton Club Site is attractively set on several levels amongst some gorgeous natural greenery. The caravan site makes for an ideal holiday location for you and your family, with walking, cycling, horse riding, games pavilion, pool tables, table tennis and outdoor play facilities on hand. There is also a great dog walk on site and other lovely dog walks nearby. There's plenty to do locally to suit every taste, with some quaint pubs and restaurants to discover.

Scarborough is within easy distance from the Scarborough West Ayton Club Site and offers plentiful safe bathing, the dramatic RSPB Reserve at Bempton Cliff, funfairs for thrill seekers, a Sea Life Centre rich with aquatic life and loads of restaurants to satisfy the appetite. There's a park and ride option, allowing you to easily access the town without a car. The site is close to a late opening supermarket, handy for when you need to stock up on essentials. For evening entertainment, there is the Stephen Joseph Theatre, which is home to playwright Alan Aykbourn's wonderful work. With the beautiful North York Moors National Park on the caravan site doorstep, there is an abundance of expansive countryside to explore, ensuring you a rewarding and memorable break.

Earlier this year, we installed a 10-metre-high play tower (the highest on the network) at Scarborough West Ayton club site, which has been a hit with the kids!

Spotless, Friendly & Helpful.

I have stayed on this site once or twice before when my outlaws were the Assistant Wardens a few years ago so I am familiar with the layout etc. However this weekend was my first time as a paying customer and also my first trip away in our new motorhome. The check-in process was easy and the staff very accommodating to change my pitch to one with an awning as I didn't know that a wind out canopy was classed as one and didn't fancy packing everything away at night. We found a nice quiet spot at the very bottom end but on reflection I should have spent a little more time driving around the site to ensure I took best advantage of the sun. As it happened we were shaded by the trees so only benefited from the sun in the afternoons. The first evening the staff pointed out that I had parked incorrectly but rather than a scolding they gave advice on how to do it in future and let me off. I was so grateful to not have to move everything. My daughter totally loved the new adventure park and soon made friends so this is a wonderful addition to the site, very well kept and clean. I didn't notice a single bit of litter anywhere! We used our facilities in the van the entire time until our last day after packing up. Like a wally I dropped the top from my toilet cassette into the chemical waste point but again the staff came to my rescue and fished it out with a litter picker and even cleaning it up for me. I cannot fault the site at all and would not hesitate to go back. The staff should be very proud of their hard work.

Last minute booking

Due the changes brought on by Covid-19 this was our 3rd choice for a long weekend away celebrating our wedding anniversary. What a fabulous site, brilliant wardens, good sized pitches and spotless facilities. Well positioned site for touring around, we had a brilliant time and thanks to this great site it felt longer than 3 nights. We will certainly be going back.

Great Weekend

We booked into the site nervously as reading some recent reviews there was a few complaints about the toilet/shower blocks. We found the facilities spotless, plenty hot water great shower pressure and toilets that fully flush and the blocks lovely and warm. The site looked good and the wardens were faultless. Covid regs all followed well. Ate in the Olde Forge a walk downhill from site. Good pub food and 10% off food for club members with card. Good walking from site into Forge Valley and beyond. We will definitely be back.

Our favourite club site

We have been to west Ayton site twice ow and will probably go back at least once every year for as long as it is possible, this caravan park/site is everything it should be, we can't fault it, it's in a great location, there is always something to do and somewhere to go in this picturesque area, even the shop/garage in Ayton is perfect for groceries and fuel and even washing your car down before your trip back home, The site itself is spotless very well kept tidy site, the staff are friendly helpful and are busy all day everyday keeping the site mint, the showers are powerful and hot, the toilet block itself is clean and warm radiators are always on to warm your towel on just like at home, the pitchs are large and very level and always tidy with clean stone of the perfect tarmac road, there is an immaculate well fenced off dog walking area, plenty of bins areas that are also spotless, a massive well mowed play field for picnicking and slides and kids play things, also a pool/snooker room with table tennis , I would recommend this site to anyone in a heart beat, thank you see you again soon , yours Jon & Jane Brown

Excellent Visit.

We recently stayed at West Ayton site for a few nights. It is a site that we regularly use. As usual we were not disappointed. The COVID-19 regulations are adhered to, but in a very common sense way. The band system using hooks outside each set of facilities worked well, having said that the site was no where near full during our stay. The wardens are lovely friendly people, and keep the site in general in top notch condition. Many people criticise the toilet blocks. Yes they are dated, and in desperate need of a rebuild/ refurb, however they are immaculately clean, which is the main thing. The site in general is in a good position to visit many resorts on the East Coast, and Birdwatching in the area is excellent, with a raptor viewpoint down the road, and RSPB Bempton Cliffs nearby. Needless to say we will return next year.
