Lovely but a bit dated

We stayed here for a week in October 2017, as usual for a Club site the Wardens are excellent, the pitches are nicely spaced out and it is well kept. The toilet blocks are looking a bit dated and could really do with a bit of modernisation. The site shop is not a shop in my opinion, it stocks virtually nothing. But the village is only a 1/2 mile walk away where there is a well stocked Spar shop and I must mention Ye Old Forge Inn, which offers excellent food, good beer, is very friendly and even offers 10% discount on food on producing your Club Card, they even welcome dogs. The site is well situated for getting out and about, 4.5 miles from Scarborough and just off the main road, to explore the North Yorks Moors National Park. I would go back here again and if the shop and Toilets had some attention, I would give this 5 stars

A holiday to remember

This was the first of what we have decided to be many future stays at West Ayton. From the moment we arrived to the time of departure, the Site Team were amazing, really helpful, and it was obvious just how much they care about the site. The facilities were second to none, especially for those of us who have Fur Babies. What is often a stressful time worrying about our four legged family - there was no worries at this site. Our dogs were well catered for as much as us. Even the wet weather didn't put a dampener on our stay. A very well thought out site, the devil is in the detail and this team have thought of everything. Looking forward to our next visit. Definitely recommended as a must stay in UK.

Another visit

4 nights end of Sept 17. This is our 2nd visit to the site, it was as expected very clean and tidy. We were quickly booked in and soon pitched up. The dog walk is superb as it is a large grassed area where your furry friend can run around freely due to it being fenced off, I do wish though that the irresponsible dog owners would pick up after their animals as there is a poo bin actually within the area. The grounds are very well kept and the wardens were very helpful when an elderly gents caravan came detached from his car as he was leaving (luckily not an expensive mishap). I understand that the site is getting a revamp' this winter, I really hope so as the toilet blocks although very clean are very dated and need bringing back the more modern facilities that we see on newer sites. All in all though a very nice stay and we will be back next season.

Late Summer Week in Yorkshire.

We spent a week on this site in mid September and it was full every day which says a lot for the site. The facilities were always very clean and warm. The wardens were really friendly and gave good advice. Unfortunately they can't control the weather and we had an awful lot of rain most nights and the pitch that we were on No,3 regularly flooded. This is something the site could look at during the refurbishment, which we understand is happening this winter. It says in the club book the bus stop is 650 yards from the site, what is doesn't say is that it is downhill all the way, which is good. The main problem is coming back, it is then 650 yards uphill and I mean uphill. It is not known as cardiac hill for no reason, it doesn't matter to the caravaners as they have their cars and it doesn't really affect the motorhomers who have additional transport. It does affect the elderly motorhomers. Now the Club is called the Caravan and Motorhome Club I think the compilers should start to address the sites from the elderly motorhomers perspective.

Lots to like about this site

The site staff are excellent, very friendly and welcoming. They work very hard to keep this large site looking good - all credit to them. The location is excellent, near enough to the coast to be able to take advantage of all there is to do, although we could give Scarborough itself a miss. The nearby Forge Valley is a pleasant drive - stop at the car park where the bird feeders are located to see a good selection of birds and the ever present cheeky squirrels. This is a family friendly site and as such during the school holidays there are lots of kids and it can sometimes be a bit noisy so be prepared for that and the cycling around the site can sometimes get a bit much especially from the older kids who frequently travel in gangs. The play facilities are good and spacious and situated away from the pitches which is a good idea as the kids do regard it as their meeting place. As seems to be the norm on sites nowadays there are lots of dogs and we have to ask why some owners think it is acceptable to let their dogs wee wherever they like on site whilst en route to the dog walk? This is child friendly site and lots of children do play on the grass around the pitches. Overall this is a good site and out of school holidays we would say it's an excellent site and we will return in the future.

Overall a good site.

A nicely laid out large site with good pitches, some of which are nicely sheltered by trees. The showers and toilet blocks are a bit shabby and really need an upgrade. Plenty to see and do nearby such as Scarborough (which I found a bit tacky), Robin Hoods Bay (great), Filey (lovely with great beaches) and Whitby (alright). Good attractions close by such as the Wolds Lavender Farm and Castle Howard. There is a great dog walk area on site and some cracking walk directly from the site. I can recommend the Forge Valley Inn at the bottom of the road for food and a good pint of beer. The only minus for me was the number of kids flying about on bikes, there seemed to be a lot of them. Through the day this is no problem and it is great to see them all playing and having fun, but they were still howling round most nights up to midnight and appeared to only have one volume setting, that being excessively loud and screaming at the tops of their voices to speak to someone two feet away All in all a good site but for the high price you pay for it I left feeling that it could, and should have left a bit more of an impression.

Expensive

Went in July 2017 for one week. The site was full therefore large long waits at the showers wash up etc. not many water points rubbish bins for the amount of people the site attracts. on site shop poorly stocked and very expensive just like the fees. Shower blocks very much in need of overhaul. Located in a fabulous part of the country with so much to do. Very good pub at the bottom of the road 10 mins walk 2 for £10 menu and a take away.

Great site but far too expensive

This will be the first year we haven't been to West Ayton in 15 years of caravanning, due to the high fees. Although the site is excellent we feel we have been priced out of going as a family in what should be a family focused site.
