Lovely walks from the site

We had a brief weekend here as we had booked a workshop at the nearby Dalby Forest. The site is really very quiet and peaceful. I particularly appreciated the information area which gave details of local walks and bus timetables. There is a very nice walk via Ayton Castle, and the river through beautiful woodland to the outskirts of Scarborough where it was very easy to pick up a bus into the centre. I would recommend use of an OS map rather than relying on walking guides as some of the routes through the woodland can be tricky. The fish and chip van on Friday night was very welcome, the fish being fried fresh to order. A good site for using to access easy walks and cycling from the van and touring the area.

Super Scarborough

Just back from our first visit to this site and we were both really impressed! The site was busy, but it didn't feel like it, being spacious, yet tranquil. Credit has to go to the whole warden team for their friendliness and their hard work, keeping the site in such lovely condition, as well as the spotless facilities blocks. Thank you wardens. A good selection of pitches, hardstanding, serviced, grass - something to suit everyone's taste. There is a great dog exercise field where the pooches can run freely. This is adjacent to a huge playing field with a brand new play-area, which the kids will absolutely love - it's brilliant! There's also an indoor area too, should the weather become inclement, as well as another smaller play area further up the site. A 5 minute walk brings you to the villages of East (across the river) and West Ayton, where buses run frequently into Scarborough and surrounding areas. There's a couple of pubs, a Spar shop and a really excellent fish restaurant (Walkers) The site also has a visiting Fish & Chip van (on a Friday) which is good. All in all, a beautiful site, in a beautiful area, worthy of 5 stars.

Recent stay

Being new to caravanning this was our second experience of a caravan club site. The wardens were really friendly and I was pleasantly surprised to find that not only do they have a DVD library and some books they also stocked A good variety of essential items. These are also included caravan accessories such as aerial cables et cetera. Facilities were spotless and they had even thought of disability as there was a separate shower seat for use. Will definitely use again and thank you to the wardens for all your hard work.

A big site but you’d never know

This is a big site but because of the design you’re on different levels and it seems much smaller. The wardens are brilliant and very accommodating. Great showers as expected from club sites . Good access and of course Scarborough is a great place to visit .

First trip to Scarborough but last trip in the caravan for 2018

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this site and will go back again next year. There is lots to do in North Yorkshire if you like sightseeing (Scarborough, Whitby, Pickering) and historical interest. There is also plenty of good walking for all or part of the day. There a good network of local paths from the site and abundant wildlife to watch. I found the site to be very clean and well maintained and appreciated a decent dog walking area where my dog could truffle around off the lead. We were given a warm welcome and our choice of pitch on arrival. What a shame we only stayed for a week!
