Good location and has potential - but needs refurbishment

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.

My wife And I have been to this site many many times over the years. There used to be 2 pubs close by one closed a while back now the other sounds as if it's on it's  way out, the fish shop was first class but something changed over the last couple of years it was closed for quite a while There is a first class fish shop near Morrisons it is a car job but worth it. I do wonder as the club site get fully up and running as I think it will the village may come back to life, that's up to us. It's a great position and the bus stop at the site gates is very handy The site does need up grading as I understand the club is going to do that. I can see we will carry on using this site, no doubt it will be more expensive but I beleave it will be a real gem. There is a club site a few miles away at westayton I wonder what will happen to.that it is a good site but a bit far out for us. At the other end of Mill lane turn left out of the site just before the roundabout on the left there is the Tow bar inn And you can get a very good carvery on Sundays.

I understand after November 2018 the older part of the site is going to be completely flattened and will not reopen till August 2019. The newer part of the site will be open but not sure if it's just for seasonal pitches, if it is we will have to find somewhere else next year. Do check this out if you want to go. I understand there are more people got there name down for seasonal than there are pitchers so some are going to be disappointed. Once the changes are completed it will be a great site we will certainly go back again.
