“Basic and tired looking”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

The website does more justice to this site than reality. The facilities are tired and not very clean. If you shower make sure you take a cubicle at top of drainage slope otherwise you end up with others water draining into yours.....not nice! Paying for electricity via cards that you have to purchase from the 'shop' is annoying why not include in price? This seems to be all the shop offers as does not sell any basics such as bread or milk. We tried the bar in the hotel but was always dead with most preferring to go to nearby pub in village which is lovely. Not sure who this site is seeking to attract perhaps residents rather than tourists and if so that would explain a lot. Sorry but there are better and cheaper sites in the area nearer to Whitby and so we will not be returning.

all the staff at York house caravan park are extremely friendly, they can not do enough for you. we checked in and at £12 a night you can't go wrong the two gentlemen even pushed our caravan on to our pitch which was a great help as I can't reverse for toffee. the site itself is beautifully positioned in-between Whitby and robin hoods bay which is great there's a bar on site and one not 5 minutes walk away. this site is extremely dog friendly as there is a great big field dedicated just to dogs and the lovely old man with the little dog is a real character and seems only happy to talk to you. after reading the reviews on York house I was a little hesitant at first but glad I and my family came here. thanks again for our lovely stay with all at York house, we will be returning in the near future.

Room Tip: pitch 32 is a great pitch with views for as far as you can see

Good Site with very helpful & pleasant staff. I have a motorhome & the pitch we were allocated was level hard standing with electric & fresh water. The shower block was clean & well heated. The bus to Whitby & surrounding area is 200 yards walk from the site. The pub & restaurant on site we did not use so I cannot comment. I can recommend this site.

Staff are not the nicest. Not really dog friendly Caravan Park. There is no genuine concern for dogs and owners. When a dog is car sick and not allowed to put a bit of dry sick in bin. I personally would help any one in that situation.

Staff are really helpfull and the grounds are clean tidy and well maintained. Only had a beer in the bar as it was empty. site toilets and showers need a deep clean or modernisation. Quite supprised at being charged for any size awning small or large.

Just returned home after spending a week at York house campsite, we booked a pitch with electric hook up and whilst we have no complaints about our pitch that is where it ends, the men's toilet and shower block was dirty, in our weeks stay it was cleaned once, the indoor playroom is a converted cowshed with two pool tables and a few video machines, non working, the only thing worth playing is the table tennis but you have to buy the bats and a ball at £4. The site is ideally located between whitby and Robin hoods bay but in our opinion compared to other sites we have visited it could do with a good tidy up and a regular cleaning schedule, it just lacks that extra bit of tlc that would turn this into a first class site

Caravan park is ideally positioned between Robin Hoods Bay and Whitby and off the main road so no traffic noise. Has excellent facilities including on site pub serving food, children's playground and large indoor play room with pool tables, table tennis, air hockey and video games. The toilet block is very clean with nice hot showers. 1 large field with hard standings and electric hook up. 2 large fields for tents and 1 small field for tents with electric hookup. We paid £29 a night for caravan with 2 adults, 2 children and 1 dog. This is the second time at this caravan park and we will book again.
