Fantastic site

Stayed at this site with my family although due to a very unfortunate incident I was hospitalised during our stay so didn't make full use if the facilities for the week. However my partner and baby stayed on for longer than we had booked and the site office were more than helpful in accommodating this for us. We are new to caravanning and the staff offered to help my partner with anything she needed it was a perfect service given the unfortunate circumstances. They were also very accommodating in letting us keep the van on site whilst I made arrangements to get it home. I would reccomend this site to anyone and am sure we will be back to enjoy a longer stay next time. I cant thank you enough for your support.

Good position, untidy, unkempt pitches

Visited here for the first time last weekend (July 2019) & like the area, central & good for visiting the coast areas. However, we were shocked / surprised by the unkempt pitches - full of weeds. Not well maintained which is surprising for a club site Toilet blocks appear dated - but not sure. The wardens - whilst polite & friendly, were not seen tidying any pitches at all. The car parking on the lorrels, is equally or worse than the pitches - full of weeds etc. Sadly, won't be coming here again.

Good site marred by unreasonable warden and his deputy

We thought this was a great site. The toilets were clean and tidy and it is in a good location with Cayton village only a five minute walk away where you have two pubs, a shop, post office etc. Also there is a bus stop right outside the site entrance which takes you into Scarborough which is very useful. Unfortunately we had an unpleasant experience with the warden and his deputy. On arrival we chose a grass pitch because it was a large grassy area and we liked the location. I saw the marker and thought straight away that it looked too close to the nearest occupied pitch, so I took the decision to reverse beyond the marker leaving my front offside corner next to the marker rather than the our rear offside corner. This meant that we were further away from the nearest unit and therefore adhering to the 6m rule. There was still loads of room to the rear of our van. On our second morning the warden came over and said that we were not parked correctly because our rear offside corner was not next to the marker. Obviously I explained why I had done this and that if we moved the van (and large awning) forward we would in fact be closer to the next unit and would therefore be creating a safety issue. He was having none of it and insisted that we move the camper and the awning for by 5 meters. This was a massive inconvenience to us because we had the awning all set up correctly and fully loaded with all out things including an inner bedroom for our two girls. Despite it being blatantly obvious that if we did move forward that we would be closer to next door he was still adamant that we move and if we didn't then we would be asked to leave the site. So in the blistering heat we moved all our stuff taking 90 minutes in total. We were soaked with sweat as it was about 30+C degrees at the time. This was totally unnecessary and pointless and we both felt that they were just being extremely awkward and unreasonable. The grass area was enormous and he could have simply just moved the pitch marker to the rear of our van and that would of made us totally compliant with the rules. When we returned from our lovely day at the beach our neighbors had gone and I noticed that the warden had removed the pitch marker from the next door pitch which just went to prove that were correct because if someone had pitched there they would have been too close to us. I don't know why they had taken a dislike to us but we certainly felt that were had been victimized. A real shame because other than that we had a great time at this site.

Cayton Village club site

The first Club site we've visited which has failed to impress. Considering it's one of the most expensive sites we've used I would have expected more - it doesn't offer value for money in my opinion and with a very low occupancy on the dates we stayed it seems others must agree. The general impression is the site COULD be nice, the setting is pleasant enough and is within easy walking distance of the adjacent village, but don't go there expecting a plethora of shops. There's a couple of pubs and two convenience stores, but little else. There's NO disabled aids in the toilet blocks, but the one we used was clean enough, although the facilities were basic. The push-button showers (lasting about ten seconds between pushes) and WCs were ok, but there was only communal washing (no private cubicles). It looked as though the site roads had at sometime been tarred, but all were badly decayed and dusty when driven across. Staff as always were brilliant, and making the best of an indifferent job. I may return, but only after it's been refurbed - whenever that might be.

not up to standard

We know the club hasn't had the site long BUT paying club prices and not getting club standard not really on. We had a grass pitch as we were told all the hard standings had gone (and they had not)(they had no idea what was left even though the had the barrier fobs). Our pitch was so uneven we have come home and bought leveling blocks. Might go back in a few years but not until the site has been sorted. A lot of the pitches were not being used and were full of weeds and thistles, also there are a lot of birds ie pigeons and their muck was walked all over our unit which had to go through a deep clean when we returned home

Excellent Location but Work in Progress

We all know that this recently acquired site will at some stage undergo a major refurbishment which will bring it more inline with the best of Club sites. Currently this site is unusual in that it has a very high number of serviced pitches compared to what we would normally refer to as Standard Pitches. This posed a dilemma for us as motorhomers, especially after a spell of very wet weather, we wanted to be sure of a hardstanding pitch. As there are only a small number of standard pitches with hardstandings available I felt obliged to pay the extra for a service pitch in order to guarantee a hardstanding. The general facilities don't match up to other Club sites but they are perfectly functional. There seem only to be two chemical disposal points on the main site which could mean a long walk. There is currently no motorhome service point, however the wardens will direct you to a drain cover which can be lifted to enable waste water to be disposed of. It will be interesting to see how the Club intend to proceed with this site. Currently there is no WiFi on site but the 4G signal is pretty good for those wanting to use their own internet data. On the plus side Cayton Village is ideally situated with a frequent bus service from immediately outside the site entrance to Scarborough in one direction and Filey and Bridlington in the other. Cayton Bay is within reasonably easy walking distance. Even closer is the village of Cayton with local shops, pub and a fish and chip shop. The other pub/restaurant is the Farrier which is done to a very nice standard and is good for a meal or just a coffee. For more major shopping there is a large Morrison's on the way to Scarborough and certainly during the week there was plenty of space to park a motorhome. This is a site we would like to return to once the refurbishment has taken place.

Needs refurbishment

We stayed here for 5 nights recently in early June. The site is very well located, 5 minutes walk to the village where there are 3 small food shops & a nice friendly pub. We had Sunday lunch in the pub, good food at a reasonable price. The beach is about a 10 minute walk, lovely sandy bay but a steep walk up & down. Buses to Scarborough, Filey & Bridlington stop outside the gate & run about every 20 minutes, very convenient. We were however disappointed in the site itself. We realise the club only acquired this site in 2018 & it needs a lot of work to bring it up to club standards. The layout of the pitches is strange in places (1 pitch behind another) & some of the pitches & the roadways need resurfacing. There are 4 different pitch types, so it took us ages to find a suitable pitch we could actually go on.The shower & toilet blocks were a bit shabby & had push button showers where you couldn't regulate the temperature, set too hot for me. They were however kept clean as we would expect on a club site. The wardens were helpful & doing a good job in difficult circumstances. We feel that in view of all the improvements needed, the pitch price should have been cheaper than it was, we didn't get good value for what we paid. We think this will be a lovely site once it has been brought up to club standards, we won't return until it has. Hope the prices are not too high after the refurb too.

Lovely welcome

As others have said the facilities are ready for upgrading, but the warmth and welcome more than made up for this. This is our second visit, we first visited just before it closed for winter last year. We found a lovely pitch where we knew our dogs would not bother people. We have a car as well as MH, mobility problems, and found this site great for getting to Scarborough, Filey, Bridlington etc. The only thing about this site that puts us off is the price. It is more expensive than others with comparable facilities. If it were cheaper we would visit more often. I hope the upgrades planned do not price it out of many people’s budget.

A pleasant surprise.

I recently stayed at the Cayton site for three nights during the half term break along with my 14 year old son. I was not sure what to expect after reading the mixed reviews. My feelings about the site are as follows and to be honest I was pleasantly surprised and I felt that I had a nicer experience than at other sites. Yes, the site facilities do need a degree of upgrading but in their present state they are still much better than a lot of other sites. The previous weekend I had stayed at a privately run touring caravan park in North Wales and it most certainly need an upgrade....it was grim. Maybe some members should have an occasional reality check to see what other facilities are like. As I have said, I really liked and enjoyed our stay. The pitch that we had was delightful. It was quiet, private and just generally a nice place to be. The trees and hedges around the site add to the pleasant feel. The showers etc are not as bad as some make out. Yes, they may have 1990’s tiles but they were spotless and worked efficiently. I seen nothing wrong with them personally and if a push button shower button upsets you, then maybe caravanning is not for you. The staff on the site were lovely. Possibly the friendliest that I have come across. I had a long conversation with one of the staff members and was told about the upcoming improvements. My big dread would be that the site is changed and ‘so called improved’ and end up like the Tewkesbury site which had been, in my opinion, absolutely ruined. Tewkesbury was once a nice site but now feels like a council run caravan storage facility. Hopefully this will not have to the Cayton site and the endearing characteristics of the site are allowed to maintain. Yes, improve the taps and toilets but please don’t overdo the decimation of the natural features of the site and have kerbs and tarmac everywhere. I hope to make many return visits if the site is not ruined by modernisation.
