Idyllically located on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park with stunning views of the coast and Whitby Abbey. This site provides an ideal base for exploring the nearby seaside town of Whitby, the Yorkshire coast and surrounding beautiful countryside.
The site is situated in the small village of Sneaton, 3 miles by road from Whitby. Within the village, there is an ice-cream farm with cafe and traditional pub, The Wilson Arms - offering a warm welcome and a range of hearty meals, both a very short walk away.
There are many countryside walks from the village itself. Directly from the site is the ancient ‘Monks Walk’ where stone flags were originally laid by the monks at the Abbey. These lead down into the woods below the site, over streams and down into Ruswarp. The path continues and leads into Whitby.
If cycling is what you like, there are many quiet country lanes to explore which connect you to the different villages within the National Park. Alternatively, ideal for young families, there is the old railway line, a traffic free cycle track, running from Whitby to Ravenscar and beyond. Dalby Forest is 30 minutes drive away which offers various graded levels of cycle and walking trails.
Currently we don't offer group bookings for our sites, but that doesn't mean you can't camp with your friends. We ask that wherever possible you arrive at the same time as the people you wish to camp with. So long as the site can accommodate, you should be able to pitch together.
If you can't arrive together please speak to the steward on arrival, they will do their very best to accommodate you. Under normal circumstances there shouldn't be any issues with saving a pitch, but we can't guarantee it.
