We had booked a touring pitch and a tent pitch at Cayton Village, Scarborough for May half term.  A chance to get away with the family for the first time in ages.  Got a call from the site Manager this morning to say that the tent pitches weren't going to be available this year! We are now frantically looking for an alternative club site or buy/rent a huge awning (Size 15)!! Any suggestions?

Strange that tent pitches won’t be available once facilities open up, but best check out other private Sites in area, and see if they are allowing tents in after 14th May, assuming all goes well and facilities can re open. We did see lots of tents with their own toilet tent alongside when out last year.

Try the C&Cc at Scarborough they'll be happy to see you. You might even be able to book a suitable double pitch together. smile

Heard someone on Radio4 yesterday, sorry can't remember programme, who bought new to them site in Yorkshire near to their Bolton abbey campsite. Huge camping field beautifully mowed as not had tents on. Opening and they've hired posh bathrooms for each pitch. Sorry can't give more details. Might be worth a search, I'm just off out with the dog but might try later.

I think it will be Catgill Farm Bakers.......

Each camping hook up pitch has its own loo and bathroom.

There are several big caravan sites very close to CAMC at Clayton, some are just statics and others take tourers etc.

According to its website, the campsite does not accept any caravans, any motorhomes or campervans exceeding 4.9 metres long.

Assuming that is body length rather than shipping length that seems OK to me (as an owner of a Swift 480) laughing

 What dunelm didn't quite make clear is NO caravans or motor homes at all and camper vans only under 4.9m. Looks a lovely site for the camping fraternity though. smile

 I had a look at their website out of interest, but they don't accept caravans or motorhomes at all.  Only small campervans which are less than 4.9m in length, from their website:

Our camping pitches are suitable for tents, trailer tents and small campervans. We do not accept caravans or motorhomes. Campervans must be shorter than 4.9m and have a steel body.
