This is a huge site and has the potential, given its location, to be a prime Club site. Unfortunately it has some way to go. The two wardens are friendly and do their best, but they are clearly overstretched looking after such a large site. Many areas need improvement. The general layout is poor; pitches are rather cramped and badly laid out in some areas, and you have to cross pitches to reach the toilet blocks. The state of the roadways is rather poor, and the toilet blocks are in need of major refurbishment. Although adequate, they are showing their age, and the floor of the gents was at times rather filthy, with dirt trodden around -- although it has to be said that this is largely the fault of the users. At one point there was no hand cream in either dispenser, and the loo roll had run out in one of the toilets. Clearly it's not enough for the wardens to visit the toilet blocks once a day; regular checks are required to make sure that all is in order.
On the plus side, it's a peaceful site - there was no intrusive noise from the nearby road, and the birdsong was amazing. It's also ideally located for walks along the coast path to either Scarborough or Filey. Local facilities are limited though. The local pub has stopped doing food, and the fish and chip shop wouldn't win any awards for quality in our view. Given a major overhaul to bring it up to Club site standards, this site has the potential to be one of the prime sites in the network. However it has some way to go yet.
