Would not recommend- facilities are disgusting

Stayed at this site from 31/08/20-05/09/20. It took a while to receive a reply to my initial email to book and there were quite a lot of people coming and going on-site. I thought CLs were limited to 5 at a time?!? Anyway, no one welcomed me at all or checked if everything was ok. The only time anyone spoke to me was to ask what time I was leaving as I was supposed to have been off the site by 12 noon (when I had booked I was told 2pm should be fine to leave by). The facilities were disgusting all week. Emailed the owners to let them know the facilities needed cleaning and didn’t get a reply. I cleaned the toilet and shower 3 times during the 5 nights I was booked in and ended up just using my own caravan facilities. Website says £15 a night, I was quoted £17, plus you have to pay for the shower and then when I came to pay they tried to charge me even more than £17 a night. Awful value for money- won’t be staying here again. The hygiene standards have a lot to be desired! I paid the same price each night for a beautiful site just north of York with amazing, clean facilities use of which was included in the price and cleaned regularly as well as very on top of covid cleaning. This site didn’t come anywhere near close to being as good. Disappointed!

Reci visit for use on our next visit to the area

We liked the look of this site on line but were concerned about some of the reviews so decided to stay elseware this time but do a reci for next time. Sadly the bad points on the previous reviews have not been rectified, there were overflowing bins by the gate that looked as if they had been like that for days. The gate was damaged and rotting and looked as if it wouldn't close even if someone wanted to. The grass was only mowed in a small area on each pitch with the rest of the site uncut making the site look untidy and meaning you would need wellies if it rains. The long grass was surprising as outside the pub was a ride on mower that was used to keep the grass in front of the pub cut. The view across the fields was good but 3 of the pitches were on the road side so as close to the traffic as possible, I would have wanted to be as far away from the road as I could. Overall the site looked as if they couldn't care anymore but would take the money anyway. Needless to say I will not be staying on this site and would recommend a visit by the Club inspector.

First Impressions

Arrived at the Honey pot inn cl site for the first time having read the reviews. Went to book in and pay for our stay and was a bit confused about the price thought it was £15 per night turned out to be £18 per night but it says in the caravan and motorhome site that its pitch + occupants for £15 we was directed to the facilities behind the pub for grey waste and Elsan point fresh water actually on the field/site. We went and set up the caravan were we found a pitch available and settled in we found it to be quite noisy with the road close but it went quieter towards dusk. We also feel that there should be more signage for the cl site there was a sign on the gate to the field but the gate was open all the time hence there was no security as such. the gate was left open all the 6 days we was there. There was people coming and driving in and out looking all the time we were there it could have been anyone and our possession's were not protected. No one came round and asked us if everything was ok at any point during our stay. Speaking to others who was staying at the same time as us also said they thought it was £15 per night and was surprised to be charged £18 instead. The views were beautiful but the facilities leave a lot to be desired the toilets and showers to me needed a good clean I felt I needed to clean them properly they didn't look like anyone had done anything to them for quite a while. All in all we wouldn't stay at this cl site again unless quite a lot was done to bring this site up to scratch.

Does what it says on the tin.

We (that's she who must be obeyed and our two mini dax and myself) visited the site on Friday 10th Aug for two nights. We were warmly welcomed and given a reasonable set of verbal instructions regarding parking and facilities. We never used the showers as we had one in the MH and access to water so I cant really comment on them. The hospitality is fantastic and they really cant do enough for you, the pub has an excellent range of beers and lager, if you eat you certainly wont feel hungry afterwards the portions are massive. The pub is pet friendly and when it was quiet on the Friday we went across for a quick pint and a look at the menu. It was very busy from lunch time onwards on the Saturday and rather than sit in the pub we decided to enjoy the sunshine next to the MH. The staff let use take our plastic jug and fill it up with amber nectar and even plated up to meals to be collected and eaten in the evening sunshine. The little church in Sneeton is worth a visit as are the cliffs if you fancy a walk along the coast. I did note that some complained about the noise of the road, we never really heard it, and it certainly didn't disturb our sleep All in all a very relaxing weekend. Thank you all at the Honey Pot Inn.

Lovely CL but could be better

We recently spent four days at this CL and found it to be fine. The food in the pub is lovely home cooking and big portions if you like Liver with Onions then you wont beat it,I'm biased because I love it. As other people have said the toilets/showers let it down only because they need a little bit of TLC and attention to detail. (Regular emptying of paper towels etc from bins) The showers are good at £1 for six minutes found this was plenty of time. Would like to see better signage for the CL facilities people were asking us where things were. Theres no doubt this is a family affair we saw Connor cutting the grass and other family members busy in the pub. The adjacent road can get busy at times but its generally only during daylight hours. This is a lovely CL but with a little bit of TLC could be a great CL.

Brilliant CL site

We stayed for 3 nights. The site is well kept and easy access to Filey Bridlington and Flamborough head. Site owners are super friendly, and the Honey pot Inn pub is so lovely. The food is amazing!! We recommend the beef Sunday lunch 👍🏻 And the curries are better than any curry house one I’ve had. We ran out of coffee in our van and the lovely landlady provided us with some too. I guess the little touches do make a difference.😊 I think the other reviews on the site toilets and shower is unfair. Obviously there isn’t a lady spraying channel perfume on entry but it’s clean enough wth soap provided and paper towels. You have to pay £1 for the shower, you get 6 mins which was fine. The shower had good pressure too. We would definitely stay here again.

Facilities toilet & showers

Perfect location, beautiful views from site. Toilets & showers very disappointing. Desperately need updating or cleaning thoroughly. Dirty floors & bins not emptied for days. We chose the site because of facilities advertised. Not worth £1

A potentially brilliant Pub CL

Even though there had been a great deal of rain before we arrived the field was fine. Along with other reviewers we would highly recommend people eat in the pub, BUT make sure you book a table as they are very busy, which must be a recommendation in itself. As others have said the pub staff could not be more hard working and helpful. Connor is an excellent host, very friendly and approachable BUT we think he must try to do a little more to keep the site looking good. We were next to the water tap and waste bins which were only emptied once in our eight days there. Perhaps we should have said something while we were there but didn't want to appear as moaners. We think it would help if they were emptied at least every third day????? Also Connor needs to spend at least ten minutes every day or 15 minutes every other day checking the toilet and shower block. There was a couple of days when there was no toilet paper, and the rubbish basket was overflowing. Connor you have a wonderful Site, a great pub and wonderful views. Spend a little time to keep it as good as possible

GREAT SITE AND LOVELY WELCOME.

Arrived on Fri 04/08/17 to a lovely little site with very easy access. Wife went to see Connor and paid and he directed us to the pitch, which was the only one remaining, next to the bins and the Water tap. If we hadve had the choice we would've gone to the bottom end out of the way with the dogs, as we breed Weimars and they go everywhere with us. They are very lively and extremely protective of there surroundings but not a threat to anyone, as they are show dogs. Apparently this didn't fit very well with some whinging gits, who found it necessary to ring the pub and complain about them barking. Might I suggest to these whinging wimps, DONT BOOK A SITE THAT ALLOWS DOGS, BECAUSE THEY DO BARK WHEN PEOPLE GO INTO THERE SPACE. Back to the review now Rant is over. The views at the site are lovely looking over the Country side from a raised spot. The grass was cut and kept tidy whilst we were there and Young Connor is trying very hard to make a go of this little business venture, and hes doing very well. The staff in the pub are very friendly as is Connors Mum, who is a lovely Character and very down to earth typical Yorkie. The food was lovely and it was very busy in there most of the time and even had to book a table to be certain of getting in. On the Sunday Evening two very large families came in just as they were about to finish serving food and they were only too happy to accommodate them, about 27 people. The showers and toilets are ideal as is the location of the waste and toilet waste points, which were pointed out on arrival. I am sure we will be going back to this lovely little site, but we will request the pitch at the far end out of the way of any whinging ten bob millionaires, in there new vans that are chuckied upto there necks in. Thanks Connor for making us welcome, and as for the moaning ones, ignore them.

Home for a quit nights sleep

Just spent three night at the honey pot in,  The site was clean and well maintained, the food in the pub was outstanding.  But we will not be returning as the noise from the Very near mane road B1229 was horrendous.
