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!

Fantastic site but well out of date facilities

Have just had 4 glorious nights at this site to spend time walking in Forge Valley & Raincliffe Woods, all done from the site. Some steep climbs up and down the valley sides but worth it. The site itself is top notch, immaculately kept by the 6 strong team of wardens and the site facilities were very clean, as you would expect. Well done to the wardens who were engaging, helpful, informative and clearly had great work ethics. The only one thing that lets the site down is the ancient toilet & shower facilities, particularly at this difficult Covid19 time. A strange example is the ratio of 3 showers to 7 privacy cubicles, with the old curtains, in the block I used, which all added to the reduced numbers of members who could use the building. Still has outdoor pot washing area, albeit under cover & only 1 sided MH waste drop off on a one way road system. On the plus side is the location, greenery etc & fantastic family play & dog walking areas. Easy access to surrounding area with an hourly bus service from the village. Thoroughly enjoyed the stay & thanks to the wardens for their hard work in keeping the site sanitised.

An excellent, well kept site handily placed for the Coast & North Yorkshire Moors

This is our first time on the site and we were very impressed by the space and peace and quiet. Our hardstanding pitch was spacious and well situated. There were some good looking grass pitches but we had lots of rain and outfits were starting to cut up and muddy the grass. The playing fields for children and their clubhouse (although shut because of Covid) makes this a site we would love to bring our grandchildren It was a short stroll into the village to go to the pub or the large, well-stocked Spar. The site was well-placed to drive up or down the coast or adventure into the quiet Forge Valley and other areas. We made a quick visit to Ravenscar but were almost blown off the cliffs and got a soaking. Bring your wet weather gear with you. The site had a really good ambience and atmosphere and was very friendly. The staff worked their socks off and were very helpful & cheerful. My only issue is that the toilets are starting to look very dated and cramped inside. The Covid arrangements made this more of a problem. They need some serious money spending on them in the immediate future as they are not up to the standard of the better private sites or even many Club sites. my wife didn't feel as strongly about the female toilets Overall we had an enjoyable stay and would consider returning probably in the Spring time rather than in Autumn.

Thanks to the fantastic effort of the wardens

Just a few months ago I, like many others were struggling to contemplate the idea of a summer holiday away from house due to the social distancing rules caused by the virus so we booked a site we were most familiar with and one of our favourite sites on the circuit and we did not regret it. The camp site was in very good condition and full to capacity and the wardens not only worked tirelessly over our fortnight break to maintain the site but also make sure that the latest social distancing rules were being adhered to. Unfortunately I witnessed a few individuals on the site who clearly thought such rules did not apply to them especially when using the facilities and I hope they realised the risk that the facilitates could have been closed down due to their behaviour but I would like to think that these were isolation incidents from irresponsible individuals who should know better. Apart from that well done to The Caravan Club and all concerned and thanks for a tremendous two weeks break.
