Lovely small site with good facilities.

Stayed for 4 nights last week at this little gem of a site. Only 5 vans allowed, so lots of space between vans, in fact although there were other vans on site we could not see them and felt as if we were in the middle of the countryside on our own. It has 2 toilets and a shower which were kept spotless. Each pitch has its own water tap and the grass was well kept. The owners Elaine and Fred were very welcoming and helpful. There was also a wooden table with seats for each pitch for eating al fresco without having to unload ours (another bonus). My husband had a great day fishing on one of the 2 ponds there, which have good pegs and are sheltered from the wind. There was some noise from the road, but it was not disturbing, in fact we both slept very well. We are looking forward to returning to this lovely site.

Nice small site with plenty of space

Nice small site between Skipsea and Hornsea. Limited to 5 pitches which means plenty of space between vans. 2 x toilets and 1 x shower separate from toilets, well kept and never had to wait for either. The site is on the main road so you have traffic noise during the day, but it quietens down at night and we had no problem sleeping. Our hosts were very nice and accommodating. The coast a relatively short walk away (15-20 mins) via a bridle path directly across the road from the site. The road is quite busy, but we have 2 fairly nervous Border Collies and we managed to cross quite easily without problem. Dogs can be walked on site (on leads) around the 2 fishing ponds which is good for morning and evening needs... We stayed for 3 nights and walked into Hornsea one day (30-40 mins) and up the beach as far as Skirlington the others days (1.5 - 2 hours each way and approximately 4 miles each way on the beach). Access to beach is either via Hornsea (turning right at the end of the bridal path) or via a steep path from the cliff top at the side of the boat yard (turning left at the end of the bridal path). We love this coast as the beaches are great and always empty, even this time of year (August). A note of caution for anyone planning the same beach walking as us on this stretch of coast, please make sure you check the tide times and plan your walks accordingly, as the beach is enormous when the tide is out, but mostly does not exist when the tide is in and as the coast line is completely cliffs with relatively few access points you could get stranded..... In summary, we would certainly recommend this site for beach walking like we did or as a base for visiting other attractions in the area.

Fantastic fortnight

Stayed for 15 nights over august BH. Elaine and Fred keep a lovely site don't know where they get all their energy from, they're always busy. Clean facilities if you need them. Handy having your own freshwater tap. Husband had a great time fishing. Hornsea a short drive away go to cafe chocolate an amazing cream tea. Everything you need for a relaxing time. So much so we've already booked for next year. We loved it!

Real gem of a site..............Not to be missed

Just back from 3 nights here, wish we could of stayed longer, a very warm welcome from our host, such a relaxed and calming feel to the whole site. If your a fisherman this is a dream come true, we are not, however the ponds were so nice to just sit and watch the dragon flies and abundance of wildlife surrounding it. Facilities were spot on. a trip into Hornsea is a must, and an easy wander from the site along the bridleway across the road. Small dog walk on site which was so peaceful at 7 am just watching the ponds. Be aware of the entrance, maybe just us but we turned down the right road but then missed the immediate hard right entrance to the site as the road does lead to another caravan park. A few have mention the road, yes you can hear the traffic but I cannot say it ever caused us any disturbance, and the owner has taken steps to lessen the noise by planting more hedging plants but these will take time to grow, but do not let that put you off this little gem. We are a family of 2 adults, 4 under 12's and 2 dogs and while this did seem a more adult retreat the kids had plenty of room to play and I never heard "mum I'm bored" the whole time, in fact getting them to go away from the site was the hardest part. If I were to make any suggestions I would of liked to see a pot wash area, but that is more because we use a cadac and the are a little big for the sink in the van.

Great Site

We have just had a second 2 week stay on this site (July 2017). As normal, Elaine is her usual bubbly self and met us on arrival to show us where to pitch. There is EHU and water supplied to each pitch with the whole site is just short of being super pitch status. Maybe drainage to each pitch an Wifi will come in the future. This is a great site for dogs with a lovely walk around the ponds in the grounds. If you like fishing then there are two ponds to choose from. There is some traffic noise, but that is intermittent and didn't keep us awake. The entrace is easy to access, even with a large twin axle van. This site will certainly go on our favourites list for future visits.

Short stop

Must say that this small CL is one of the best and must agree with the comment by a poster on here that Elaine is one of the most welcoming hosts ever. We did a fantastic walk from the site all along the coast and back covering about 7 miles. You cross the road outside the site gates onto a bridal path turn left towards the boat club down towards the beach but stay of the sands and walk along the cliffs. We called in for a nice coffee at one of the campsites which we left our walking sticks but all was ok when we made it back as the kind lady found them and kept them safe for us. We did plan on catching the bus back from Skipsea but due to finding the sticks missing had to turn round just out side the town and walk back. Would use this site again if in the area.

One of Hornsea's Crown Jewel

I have regularly stayed at this site and I find it truly amazing. Elaine is one of the most welcoming hosts ever. The site is excellent and well maintained. The facilities are cleaned every day and the site is just so restful considering a main road is just over the hedge. I have been coming here for 3 years and I have always had a warm welcome no matter what time of arrival. Picnic tables are placed near if you require one and the spaces are so open plan. You never feel overlooked by others and I am a small campervan. I also travel alone and I have never felt afraid or uncomfortable even if I am the only one on site, which doesn't happen very often. The site is safe and sound in Elaine and Freds capable hands. The dog walking area is tranquil and its lovely to see the sun come up over the fishing ponds and watch the wildlife. Elaine will often leave me the Hornsea free paper and let me know the eggs are available. What more could you ask for. There are no set times and everything is at a relaxed pace of life. AAAAAhhhhh bliss. I would truly recommend this site without hesitation. I sleep like a baby and feel that Elaine and her friendly well cared for approach is a real pleasure in this day and age of the busy lives we lead.

Amazing weeks holiday

We stayed here at the end of May and we fell in love with the site and Hornsea. The site is immaculate, has easy access, lovely dog walk, and have lovely owners who are helpful without being intrusive. Within walking distance of the beach and town, this site is perfectly placed for a wonderful break. We can't wait to return, our Springer Spaniel is still recovering from all of the lovely walks.... best CL we have stayed on

Well tendered Site but..........

We stayed on a Saturday evening at the end of a holiday. The site was easy to find off the road. We had a lovely welcome from the owners and the site was well maintained clean and tidy. We have to disagree with the road noise not causing disturbance. For us we were woken many times through the night all night long by the road noise it was non stop. this may be because it was a saturday night? We did not park near the edge but in the centre hoping it would help. It must be difficult for the owners to try and resolve this we are sure they are trying as mentioned. I feel sad to write a downside to this site as everything was lovely but if you cannot sleep when you are travelling it's not a great feeling.
