Why stay here ...

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!

Great Family Site

Our 1st visit to this site in Middle of August with our 2 children and Dog and we had such fabulous weather for the whole 10 days. Beautiful countryside and wonderful views. The site is very clean and tidy and toilet/wash/shower blocks were always kept clean, wardens are extremely friendly and lovely and polite and were always around the site. It has 2 play areas, 1 little park down the bottom which is where we were pitched (145) and another big park/play area and a games room over to the right of the site. Lovely large dog walk area which you could walk through the gate and turn right and it would take you into the West Ayton Castle field with cattle. Site has a Fish and Chip van which comes on Wednesdays and Fridays which was very tasty and parks near the large park/play area. Very close to all areas, lots of farms/tea rooms to visit and close to Scarborough beach which was very nice and had lots to entertain children/adults and very good for crabbing in the rock pools. Spar Shop was only down the road within petrol station and a post office. The only issue we had was that with a very long twin axle caravan it was a little difficult to manoeuvre around the tight bend at top by the gate, so may have been easier for 1 of us to walk around 1st in front to find a pitch to save driving around again, but all ended well. We have already rebooked this site again for next year as we all throughly loved it.

The Best Club Site We Have Visited Yet

Visited site in August 2019 and the weather had not been nice, until we got here and then weather became hot and sunny. The site was easy to get to and accessing was good, no narrow lanes etc. Booking in was quick and easy we just needed to find ourselves a pitch and let reception know the number so we could get the corresponding gate fob. I said I wanted a grass pitch (the site has them) as we find it VERY difficult to get the awning pegs into club site hardstanding. We were told as we were only there for 4 nights we could have an awning on grass. Found lovely pitch and set up. Back to reception to get fob and told that if we were using a groundsheet we would need to lift it each day, no we were not but did have bedroom compartment, yes we would need to lift this each day! As had rained, true, and grass was quite wet (and in some places it was - further done the site). Thoroughly enjoyed stay and the toilets. showers etc were of the high standard that goes with club sites. Scarborough town was lovely and Spar shop short distance away. Did have an "August Fest" at the local pub which meant you got music most of Sunday whether you wanted it or not - would have been nice to have known in advance (say, when booking in) as we would have gone out on the Sunday and stayed at the 'van and relaxed on the Monday (home Tuesday). All in all a very good site and the best one we have stayed on to date but due to the difficulty of getting pegs in I think we'll go back to CLs.

Gem of a site.

Visited in August for four nights. Lovely well maintained site with excellent dog walks on and off site which also has a dog wash. Clean facilities. Quiet in the evenings and at night despite being in the kids holiday period. Large children's play area on site. Two pubs within walking distance which both serve food and are dog friendly. Excellent location for the Forge Valley nature reserve and visiting Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay, Scarborough and Filey. Will definitely return to this site.

Great site

Visited in June 2019. This is the second time we've been here. It's a great site with everything you need for a caravanning holiday. Showers and toilets are spotless, lovely and warm, and powerful showers. Laundry facilities are spot on. Great dog walk for our two dogs. Our young grandson loved the slides and play area. Lovely big play area for kids, just had to watch out for the rabbit holes. This site has everything that we needed. We will certainly use again when in the area.
