A very pleasant adults only CL set on the edge of Flamborough village, near the resort of Bridlington. The site is accessed by taking a sharp right turn just before the Church, follow the road around a tight bend and then turn right along the access road which runs beside the C&CC CS its of Beacon Farm. There are one or two small potholes to be aware of. The CL is then on your left with another filed used by the owner on the right. This second field is without EHU and can be booked for a discount of £5 per night on the standard fare. The CL itself is a large paddock type area with the possibility of parking on hardstandings for about 2 outfits, near the entrance gate. Otherwise it's a park wherever you want to site. There is a small unfenced pond at the bottom of the site (hence the adults only rule) where you can park adjacent to and watch the resident Moorhens go about their business (this year was pleasant watching them raise 5 chicks). The main drawback from parking anywhere is the siting of the EHU bollards, of which there are 3 (x2 on each one). They are all near the front portion of the site and you should carry an extra cable. We were quite close to an EHU but someone was using the 2 outlets so we had to use 2 cables to stretch to a further one. The site is well sheltered by mature trees and needs to be on occasion being close to Flamborough Head. There are 2 bins, one for general waste where you are asked to bag everything, and one for dog waste. The Elsan point is a bit basic but adequate with its own water point.There are 2 water pipes for drinking water. The owner no longer lives at the farmhouse but in the village and he will call every day between 9 and 10 am. A pleasant gentleman to talk to. The grass by the way is kept short and was mowed twice in the week we stayed. The site itself does undulate slightly so levelling blocks are advised. Dog walking is easy from site. There is a Public footpath which runs past the Beacon Farm site that leads to the coastal path and another about 1-- yards down the lane that will take you towards Sewerby Hall and onwards if you want to Bridlington. You can quite easily walk around the Head itself to Bempton Cliffs and return without using the car, making use of one of the 3 pubs in the village. The bus stops near the church and this will take you to Bridlington or Scarborough/Filey. There is a Co-Op in the village and one or two general stores plus the pubs, all serving food, as well as the Seabirds restaurant. We enjoyed our stay on this conveniently placed CL and will return when next in the area.
