Sloping Site

This is a sloping site split roughly equally between the main (lower) site and the upper site. A lot of effort has gone into redeveloping the lower site and making the pitches level. By contrast the upper site appears to have only received a cosmetic makeover and the pitches follow the contour of the ground, meaning many are not level. Caravans are readily seen with either the hitch virtually on the ground or their corner steadies at full extension and on blocks. Pitches go both along and across the slope. Levelling ramps and blocks are essential for the upper site. The pitches on the upper site are also narrow with enough width for caravan and awning but car parking across the front of the pitch. For the upper site the toilet block is at the top of the site giving people at the bottom of the site a fair walk uphill to the toilet block. The band system for access to the toilets is now the same on all sites and provides enough bands for the use of both showers and toilets, minimising any waiting. Only downside here is for the gents the urinals are closed and only 2 toilets are open which can lead to queues at peak times, although you still have option of using your own facilities. Once pitched, the site itself is well located. You can walk into both Scarborough (3 1/2 miles) or Filey (5 miles) along the Cleveland Way. The walk to Filey has great views. It is easy to then catch a bus back to the site with frequent bus services that stop at the site entrance. RSPB Bempton Cliffs is popular for bird watchers but gets busy early, we got turned away at 1030am. A good alternative is Flamborough Head. Probably a good location for families with the beaches available locally.
