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!

Lovely site

Fantastic site. Although as already stated in another review the showers had boiler issues this did NOT spoil our break we were able to shower and use facilities that were very clean. Wardens are lovely and very friendly. Site is clean tidy and very well kept. Fab explorer hunt to keep little ones entertained, lots of space for them to run around and play. Good dog walk on site. Not far from Scarborough for days out. Looking forward to our return trip.

A lovely site.

First time here and we enjoyed our stay here. Didn’t go far, pub, T rooms and local fish and chips. We mostly used our caravan facilities. Some people, often children not using Wristbands, and more people in the facilities than there should be. Amazed at the number of people with modern/ new caravans and motorhomes moaning about queuing for the showers. We would visit again, in low season.

Nice stay

Enjoyed our 3 night stay. We had one of the few grass pitches, which was absolutely fine. Although it was full, we felt sufficiently tucked away so it didn't feel too busy. A few waits for the toilet block due to the covid restrictions, but not too big a deal really. A bit if a way out of Scarborough, but we were able to cycle in keeping off some of the main roads. Not the cheapest though, seemed to charge more than the website was indicating. Neglected to double check that though.

Needs an upgrade to justify the pitch fee

We have just had 6 nights at West Ayotn and was disappointed to find that the shower upgrades had not been done even though last year we were told they were scheduled to be done . Throughout our 6 night stay every shower was stone cold . We were told that there were two boilers down the lower block and one had broken and the other intermittent . For the amount charged £296 . It annoyed me that the showers we had as a family we’re freezing . We resorted to our limited on board basic facilities . It is a lovely site and the wardens are very helpful but it marred our stay as we were patient enough to queue for a shower and then for it to be not working was unacceptable .Many other families were complaining about it . We found that a minority were either not hanging their wristbands or were forgetting to take their wristbands . So the shower block seemed to be full when in fact the wristbands had been forgotten . The wildlife is lovely on site , but down the lower end we found that the Wood pigeons were incredibly noisy from 5am ! Last year we stayed on the higher tier away from the trees and it was a lot quieter . I live in a rural village so am used to the country noises but we were astounded at the number of wood pigeons and volume on site . All in all for our first holiday as a key worker , we were regrettably disappointed . But must stress the Wardens were not to blame .

Well kept site

1st time on this site and it was the 1st day of opening after lockdown, very impressed with the system that was in place in regards to covid 19,although some people seem to disregard the measures in place,maybe they can't count the 2 rubber bands outside the toilet to inform that they are full?.lovely well kept site with lovely chatty wardens, i think £32 per night is a little bit expensive but we really enjoyed our stay.full marks to the wardens for a lovely well kept site.hopefully we'll return soon.
