A Really nice surprise and super-pitches too

We booked this site last minute, when it suddenly showed up as available for our short stay in October. We were well aware that it is a work in progress, and were delighted to be able to book. We were on the section that is entirely fully serviced. This is something that we always look for, and can sometimes take some finding among Caravan and Motorhome Club sites. It was easy to find using the SatNav, but better signage would be appreciated. When we arrived, the wardens could not have been more friendly and helpful, and we soon chose our pitch and settled in. The pitch did slope a little from side to side, and I had forgotten the levelling blocks, but it wasn't too much of an issue for us. Some pitches did, we noticed, slope quite badly and will need attention. They were, however large enough for a big caravan, awning and car. The services were well-maintained, and in good working order, although some of the waste water drains were a little overgrown. I understand that this site is due for refurbishment this winter. We found the toilets very clean and warm, but we didn't use any of the other facilities. The only issue was the lack of privacy and openness of the site. We were quite disappointed to see that many of the existing trees and bushes were being cut down, and can only hope that a planting scheme will be embarked on to provide a little more shelter. Security is a big thing these days, and we were delighted that the barrier and entry cards worked so well. This site is very handy for Scarborough and Filey, and is in a good location for the moors and coast. As it hardly stopped raining, we did not explore the area on foot, but for all that, we very much enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning, hopefully in better weather.

Great site

Had. Weekend here in September. Great location with 3buses an hour into Scarborough. The other way buses to Bridlington. 20 mind walk to Dayton bay. Yes the facilities are dated , but they were spotlessly clean, credit to the wardens. We will definitely return again after the refurb think this will be a really popular site.

A great site

We arrived yesterday, there were only a small number of pitches available but the one we chose is good. I took our dog for a walk around both the dog walks which are excellent, I wish they had these on all of the sites. We got all set up with our awning on a grass pitch, no problems. It is very nice here and a good site. Today we had our showers, yes the water only lasts 5 seconds but I just leant my back on the water knob as I needed to wash my hair. No problem. I placed my toiletry bottles on the window ledge and also found the width of the seat suitable. I think some people moan unnecessarily, having read read the previous reviews. We had a walk to the village today and saw all the shops and the pubs. It’s very nice here and we will return in future, looking forwards to seeing the improvements to come.

Refurb long overdue

First time on this site and maybe the last. Too many sloping pitches and far too much chippings on the pitch. Makes it difficult for a caravan mover and to walk on. Near impossible to push a wheelchair. Wardens very friendly and kept the site nice and tidy. Although the toilet blocks were kept very clean I’m glad to hear they are being improved. Push buttons in the shower are a nightmare. 10 second burst of hot water is not ideal. We went after the school holidays had ended so was nice and quiet. I can imagine it’s a noisy site during the holidays.I do hope that when the upgrade is completed you cut back on the amount of seasonal vans which were lying empty on site.

Lovely site, Ideal location for visting East Yorkshire

Our recent visit to Cayton Village site was very pleasant, friendly,helpfull staff fully committed to the upkeep of the site even with the future refurbishment in the pipeline for next year, look forward to visting again next year and seeing all the proposed improvements. Ideal for getting about, bus stop outside the gate with regular buses up and down the coast,short walk to the beach and access to the " Cleveland Way "( path might be a bit steep for some people ) small village within walking distance with 2 different pubs,church, chipshop, local post office/shops and tea rooms. Enjoyed our stay there again.

Will be back when refurbished

We enjoyed the site it is in a fantastic position for visiting all the resorts of Filey , Scarbrough and Whitby . Cayton Bay is fantastic and only a few minutes drive in the car . The village is a few minutes walk away with a couple of shops a dog friendly pub and a fantastic fish shop . . The only bugbear were the actual pitches which are very small and close together , the pitch we were on could not accommodate our car at the side of the caravan , it had to be parked in front of the A frame , meaning neighbours were too close with no privacy . Yes the showers need a refurb and having to keep pressing for the water supply is not ideal but they were clean and the toilets were spotless.We will certainly go again once refurbed ,

Good Site

We were nearly put off going by the bad reviews. We found the site very good. Yes some hard standing pitches had some weeds but most were fine, high proportion of serviced pitches, , toilets/showers clean, grass cut, bins collected and staff helpful. Also well served by buses and easy walking distance to Cayton village with pub and shop. We will definately be returning,

Thanks for all the bad revievs -

A big thank you to all those who gave the site one or two stars. Due to Gills cancer we can't book more than a couple of weeks ahead, but two weeks before the August bank holiday they had fully serviced pitches available and we booked. What do I compare it to? Southportt and White Water are our last two Caravan club sites and they have been recently refurbished. We have been caravanners for over 20 years and use mainly commercial sites. So here goes, the wardens were helpful and understanding that many would be later than 6pm on a bank holiday (try that at a commercial site), the site is level, and all the services wiork - we were warned that it was a no awning pitch so can hardly complain that we weren't allowed to put up our sun shade type awning. Yes the roads are not metalled, so cars will throw up dust if they speed past - can't really blame the wardens for the one in a hundred campers speed. No idea what the wardens do all day - but the grass isn't unkempt, the bins are always empty (on a bank holiday!), and the toilet block that we use is clean and tidy - maybe some well trained pixies are at work. No idea what the showers are like - even when we used our 19 year old van we always used our own shower. Will we come back - you bet A big thank you to the wardens for making our long weekend away a good one, thank you to our neighbours - pleasant helpful and quiet, and a big thank you to the club, this is a site that will be a credit to you all.

not very clean

the toilet / shower block was dirty and full of cob webs, spiders and dead bugs. there was nowhere to put your shower stuff except the window sill and this had dead bugs on it so wasn't going to put my sponge or anything on it. the shower only gave you 5 seconds of warm water before you had to press the button however the hand basin gave you 20 seconds to wash and rinse your hands so how do they expect you to rinse your hair or body in 5 seconds but they give you 20 seconds to rinse your hands. there was mould on some of the tiles. there was coat hooks missing in all the shower cubicles and no coat hooks in some of the toilets so i had to put my coat on the floor when using the toilet. the bench in the shower cubicles was so narrow you could not sit on it so total wast of time having them. the pitches was very well maintained and there is a good play area for the kids. the staff was very pleasant on arrival but not on departure. the TV reception on our pitch was very bad and there was no TV aerial hookup for pitches with very bad signal.

Having read earlier reviews we visited the site with some apprehension. Whilst we found that the facilities did not fully match the usual high standards of the club we had a great visit and will certainly return again. Our grandchildren loved the play area and our dog enjoyed the dog walk. The site is well placed to the village. I can recommend the chip shop. It is so handy to catch the frequent buses that pass the entrance of the site for Scarborough, Filey and Bridlington. We had a lovely day on the beach at Cayton Bay. What a lovely beach, without the temptation of amusements etc. It is hoped when the site is refurbished it won't lose its quirkiness. We will visit again
