Fantastic; peaceful and perfectly located

We regularly visit the North York Moors and usually stay in a cottage. However during our last visit we spotted this site and decided to book and bring our caravan up. I am so pleased that we did! The site is located in a perfect location for a quiet stay with fantastic walks and within easy car travel distance to Goathland, Whitby, Grosmont, Robin Hood's Bay etc - just what we wanted. There is a lovely wood on the site for dog walking and it is only a very short (and lovely) walk to Falling Foss where there is a (seasonal) tea shop. Despite the review below mine we felt it was an excellent site with very friendly management. We actually welcome and appreciate the policing of the rules. Rules are generally for well founded safety reasons (spacing between vehicles etc) and the interests of other residents. The grass was soft due to the weather and so it seems common sense to me to keep vehicles off of it. No special cases - the rules are the rules for good reason and help ensure what makes Caravan Club sites the high standard that they are. We shall definitely visit again.

Basic and regimented

Site nice enough and would have scored higher if hadn't been made to feel like naughty children upon arrival and throughout stay. Felt uncomfortable for whole of stay because owner in my opinion appeared unnecessarily over controlling and so precise. Owner asked we not have two cars parked on pitch despite the gravel pitch being plenty large enough for my tiny caravan and two cars and being informed my friend was not staying and was only here for 20 minutes to help set up as I was new to caravan ownership. However he insisted my friend Park his car at reception despite that my friend had followed me for 4 hours and had a 5 hour journey home. The owner then felt the need to do regular site walks despite there being no facilities to oversee. This constant walk around the site made me feel policed despite being middle-aged, sensible and respectful of others. I went to stay in a cottage on the Friday but visited the caravan on the Saturday to have a coffee with my friend who had driven up again on the Friday to take over caring for my dog that wasn't allowed in the cottage booked prior to being a caravan or dog owner. The owner during his walk around knocked on the caravan to ask I move my car despite it being on the gravel and not hurting anyone or the grass. I can only think maybe insurance requires only 1 car allowed per pitch! However, if this is the case an explanation of this would have felt better than just being told to move with no explanation other than the owner in my opinion being overly worried about his grass. I thought caravan holidays supposed to be relaxing but I felt uncomfortable and would not rebook for this site. I would rather miss my Goth Weekend I have attended for many years.

Ok for a short break.

With limited facilities and a fairly remote location there's not a lot to get excited about on this site. Given it's elevated position the views are fairly poor due to the trees screening the site. A couple of miles to the nearest pub down a steep hill means a car journey is essential, walking or cycling would be hard work. Access is very easy albeit via a couple of steep hills on approach. Arriving from the north or south route seemed fairly similar on degree of difficulty, not too bad. The plus points are the access to the local attractions such as Whitby and the coast, the N.Yorks moors railway and heritage sites in the area. The site was fairly cheap and served the purpose of a weekend pull up but there are better sites locally with better facilities and views.

spoilt stay

good greeting on arrival friendly wardens,very keen to highlight speed limits which is good and totally agree with, unfortunately when his back is turned missed several people ignoring one way system, also arriving on site was a motorhomer from hell who promptly reserved the pitch next to his for his friend by using his motorhome pitched here sign, his friend who arrived with a car conversion proceeded to make everyones life a misery with constant slamming of car doors (about an hour and a half) "pitching" their car, not satisfied with that they then proceeded to have what can only be described as .a shouting contest so loud most of Whitby probably heard it, on the whole though site not bad, it was well placed for Whitby and supermarkets and plenty of attractions such as north yorks moors, steam railway and plenty of coastal places to visit, we will visit again and hope that we find a better pitch away from undesirables

Enjoyable stay.

This place is a little piece of heaven. The wildlife is The noisiest neighbour. Lovely level pitches. Quiet and tucked away from road noise. When the site is full it still is reasonably quiet. Week days there are fewer people around and one can indulge in wild life spotting. We had a deer trot passed our van one afternoon. There is a great secure dog walk which our dogs loved. Unfortunately the weather turned against us, but still enjoyed it. We have been here before and will come here again

Quiet and peaceful.

Our first visit to this site, however won’t be our last. A great location not far from Whitby or the North Yorkshire coastal strip. Received a warm welcome from the site staff when booking in, was informed of pitches available and aspect regarding sunlight etc. Used this visit as a shakedown to check everything working in the van before we ventured further south. No problems in the van or this site. Really impressed with the pitches all weed-free and the grass immaculate. Was lovely to see a Boules pitch on site along with a crazy golf course, next time we visit we shall ensure we bring our Boules. Would recommend this site to anyone that wants to explore the North Yorkshire coast. Must sees are Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay, Pickering and the steam railway and Scarborough. Minimal facilities site that has everything.

A Favourite

We have been to this site numerous times over the last 15 years and it is one of our favourites. It has a great location with lots of walking from the site and it is well placed to explore both coast and moors. The site is in excellent condition and is a great testimony to the hard work, commitment and care of the wardens. We stayed on the site in the current wardens' first year in charge and now appreciate the fruits of their labour and the impact they have had. Thank you!

Best site ever!

Quiet, peaceful, beautiful site. We loved every minute of it. You are within a few mins drive of Whitby, Robin Hood's Bay, Goathland etc yet feels like being in the middle of nowhere. I did not want to go home! Thanks a lot, we will definately be back when in the area.

Another Great Escape

Returned to this site again for the 11th time as it never lets us down. Wardens friendly and do a good job at keeping the surroundings in excellent condition. Peace and quiet as always due to site being far enough from Whitby but close enough to all the surrounding coastal towns. Marked down slightly as no toilet block (don't need as everything on board) and not a lot for kids to do (does have a crazy golf). Dog walks are excellent and the walk, with the following coffee and cake at Falling Foss is great.We will be back. P.S. Postgate Inn at Egton Bridge (about 10 miles away) has excellent food.

Our second trip this year

Love this site as it it so quiet but would be even better if it had a shower block but then the price would go up. Well looked after site and lovely flower display. Our only gripe was Caravans checking in early, especially at 10:30.
