Excellent for the Many Places of Interest

Visited Fox & Rabbit Inn site 1st - 8th August 2020 Excellent site with easy access and welcoming staff. Good food in the dog friendly pub. Hard standings are good with easy access to water points refuse area and chemical disposal point. Many places of interest are within easy drive, Nice site for our dog too. I would have given 5 stars but for the grass needing cutting and the noise to early evening from the adjacent industrial site. Peter & Veronica Caravanner from Kent

Dirty Elsan point full of human faeces Reported - no action taken

I am sure this is a better site come the summer dry months but in winter is very messy on the entrance and sadly you have to walk through puddles to open the entrance gate. Hard standing was not bad. The Elsan point was disgusting and reported by us but NOT sorted or even looked at for that matter. It seems it is a well know problem at this site and had been reported the week previous. It was over flowing with human faeces, solid excrement. WE will not return.

Good site, good food friendly staff.

This was a last minute booking for us as we had made others plans which were cancelled last minute. Despite our initial disappointment we decided we would try here with it only being a short 70 mile drive from home. What a gem of a CL Site. It’s the second field in and you still get road noise but we weren’t disturbed by it at all. The pub has a good menu and we ate there twice in our 4 night stay. Big thank you to the staff for their warmth of welcome and service. The pitches are well spaced and level, with trees to make a wind break, so even on windy days it wasn’t to bad. Lots to do if your walkers and cyclists we walked in to Dal y Forest from the site and spent our days walking amongst the spruce trees. If you like Scarborough and Whitby are far and there lots to see and do if you wish. All in all a 5* CL.

Good Location

Good location for Pickering, Gothland , Whitby and the North Yorkshire Moors National Park. Some road noise especially at weekends. Great pub serving excellent food and dogs are welcome in the bar area.

Fox and Rabbit, Very Good CL

We know the area well, and looking for a Winter base, the Fox and Rabbit ticked all the must have boxes for us! Superb moorland location, just off main road between Pickering and Whitby, so great for getting out and about. Contacting the pub with our late booking was easy and welcoming, directions are good, big pull in area to left of pub that will get even the largest of outfits safely off the road. This first area is Summer overspill for pub, you pass through first gate into newest bit of site, with five very nice and tidy gravelled hardstandings pitches looking down across a large grassed area, out towards the Moors. Each pitch has hook up and picnic seating, one tap serves all pitches. Passing through a second gate brings you to the more mature CL area. This is more sheltered, surrounded by dry stone walls and a thin belt of mainly conifers. We had gale force winds during our stay, but the pitches were very sheltered. Big grassed area overlooked by all pitches, which are large and deep, each with a hook up. Small service area up near gate has tap, Chem Toilet Empty and rubbish bins. We were offered a key to toilet (small refundable deposit for key) but we didn’t need it. It’s there, but no idea what it is like. No MH drive over point, but a bit of hose will reach into Waste drain, and water fill tap is next to site service road. This second field is further from road, so quieter. Walk of around 200 metres to pub, which serves lovely food, but book a table as it is popular. Pitches are well away from pub car park. So much to see and do in area, it’s a place we return to constantly. But it’s also one of those sites that is just nice to stay around and chill out. Lots of bird life, probably deer, certainly rabbits and the odd Fox!😁 Pickering is a quick 10 minute drive away, for Co op and Lidl, lots of great independent shops and market. Castle and Church well worth a visit, Home of North York Moors Railway, with train links to Whitby and elsewhere. Petrol stations in Pickering and Whitby. Dog owners.......dogs very welcome, including in the pub. Lots of footpaths all around, and of course some wonderful walking and cycling. There is access directly into Dalby Forest for walkers and cyclists. Motorist entrance five minutes away. All in all, a very nice place to stay, and good Winter value at £15 per night. One we shall definitely use again.

Very Good

Just got back from a weekend here and this is one to return to. We would advise the owner to at least double the width of the road in front of the hardstanding pitches, this would save on having manoeuvre over the grass which when wet, as it was this weekend, is quite boggy. The pitches are long enough, we have a twin axle caravan, but again could do with been wider allowing the parking of the car on hardstanding saving the owners grass. There is a small amount of road noise but nothing that could be deemed intrusive. The pub has good well cooked food and drink with a menu that is varied and inexpensive. Overall this CL is one that without doubt we will return to...open all year....£15.00 per night including electric....what more can we say. This almost a five star review!!! Thanks

Whitby Trip

What a lovely CL. It was lovely and quiet with nice trees and grassed area with your own picnic table. A bonus been right on a pub site also. The pub does lovely meals and also has a seating area outside which was lovely on a sunny evening. We took a steam train to Whitby which was lovely and took in the beautiful views of the moors and stunning scenery. Whitby itself was lovely and well worth a visit. I would definitely stay here again.

Fox & Rabbit Perfection

We arrived 1 hour early on Good Friday and were allowed to go to our pitch, Nice large hard standing pitches with mature trees around the field, perfect for children as it is enclosed and a long way from the road. Lovely dog walking areas too. The pub has some nice cask ales on offer and serves some very nice sized portions of food and not expensive either. The site is in a perfect location as you can quite easily head for, Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay, Scarborough, Filey or Bridlington. Pickering is a nice town with Co Op and Lidl supermarkets and plenty of take aways and tea rooms. You can take a Steam train ride from Pickering Station up to Grosmont and visit where Heartbeat was filmed or go all the way to Whitby. Once we had paid on arrival and directed to our pitch this is the last time we saw the owners apart from in the pub on a night. I'd definitely rate this site at 10/10. Each pitch was level and had EHU and picnic bench too, There is 1 fresh water tap on site and chemical toilet disposal point and plenty of dustbins and if you want you can pay a £5 deposit and have a key and exclusive use to the toilet near to the pub. We will definitely be returning to this site.
