“Exposed and sloping”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

Stayed 4 nights in July the site is very exposed and sloping and it didn't help that we were made to face the front of our van inland by the time I had leveled it I couldn't get my grey water container under back of van so had problems draining sinks and shower! Not sure why we had to site with our backs to the sea reception said it was so that all the caravan doors would open the same, but this also would work sited with a sea view! Because of the location of the site it is very exposed and suffered from strange winds which made it difficult to use wind jammer the wind swirled round in all directions!
The staff are very friendly and the shop is well stocked and reasonably priced we didn't use the club so can't comment. The site is in a good location for Whitby but to walk you need to be fit there's 199 steps to navigate to get down into town and before that a 15 minute walk along the cliff top.
The toilet blocks are clean and modern two of the 5 cubicals were out of order in the gents throughout our stay but didn't cause a problem but if site full it may do!

We try and site everyone of our customers because of how the pitches are laid out. We site them the way the pitches are and that their door opens onto their pitch and not the next pitch. If we let them pitch how they wanted it would cause us big problems. We are a very exposed site and do get strong winds from the North Sea.

We stayed on this lovely site after a long drive in our motorhome (we traveled from south wales ) and found a little jem. The site is very clean and offers everything you could want shop, pub, cafe, ex showers and lots more , there is a lovely cliff top walk into Whitby ( you must visit ) and excellent sea views , do yourself a favour and visit.

Just returned home after a wonderful 5 night stay and we were all extremely impressed with Whitby Holiday Park. It has excellent facilities, is very well run and staff are so friendly with a very helpful warden who goes out of his way to help new arrivals feel welcome. The shower and toilet block is spotlessly clean and the whole park is very well maintained.
The position of the park has spectacular views of the countryside, sea and the beautiful Whitby Abbey with lovely walks from either side of the park along the Cleveland Way which is well worth walking along and only takes 15 mins to walk into Whitby.
Its by far one of the best touring parks we've stayed at and can't wait to return!

We have owned our motor home for 5 years now and stayed at many many sites. However, until now, I have never felt compelled to write a review. The site is brilliant, stunning views, close to the beach, a lovely walk into Whitby and the most warm and friendly, helpful staff you could ever wish to come across. It poured down the whole time yet we enjoyed our stay. When leaving, we were slighty worried about getting stuck on the pitch. Luckily we didn't, however the chap next to us did. The staff were out in a flash with a winch to get them free.....now that's service. Cant wait to go again.......hopefully the sun will shine then!

What a lovely site. It was bank holiday so the site was nearly full and yet we could easily get a seat in the club. With the dogs as well. All the staff are great, especially the young man who showed us where to fill the water tank up and how best to park. Lovely walk into Whitby. Great dog friendly beach next to the site. Can't wait to go again. YAY!

This review is based on a touring caravan holiday rather than a static caravan.

The site is nice with clean shower block, cafe, bar and shop.

The pitches were large with great views of the cliffs and sea. The pitch we had was near the cliff edge which was great.

It was quiet at night and the staff were really helpful and friendly.

The only negative I would give is there was a lot of dog mess around the site which was unacceptable but ultimately is down to the dog owners poor behavour for not cleaning up.
