Touring Caravan Sites In Whitby
Exploration, new sights and new sounds are made all the better if you know you can retire to your home away from home at the end of a fun-filled day, so here is an overview of just some of the caravan sites available within the region – all with varying facilities and locations to suit you.
Middlewood Farm Holiday Park
This caravan park for touring caravans and motorhomes can be found just ten minutes walk from Robin Hood’s Bay and features electrical hook-ups to all of its hard-standing pitches as well as two ‘super luxury’ washrooms with free showers and hot water, hand and hair dryers, and full laundry facilities.

Manor House Farm Touring Park
Situated ‘a Yorkshire Mile’ from Whitby outside the village of Hawsker this touring park is somewhat of a contrast to the above, with a simple back-to-basics mentality allowing holidaymakers to enjoy their stunning surroundings in peace and quiet. Dogs are not allowed on site, yet if you are yearning for a bit of animal company, feel free to say hello to the farm’s ‘girls’ – friendly hens who like to roam around the fields.
All pitches come with electric hook-ups and the toilet and shower block has recently been refurbished (2016).

With 60 places for caravans, Broadings Farm, Whitby, is split between several fields. All caravan pitches are hard standing and have their own electric hook ups. It’s worth mentioning that the farm does also offer two holiday cottages for those traveling without their own touring caravan.

Sandfield House Farm Caravan Park
This truly delightful caravan park is set within the North Yorkshire Moors, with one of its most appealing features being the wonderful sea views that can be enjoyed from most of the pitches. Up to two dogs per caravan are welcome to stay at Sandfield House Farm and uniquely, the grounds also include a secure exercise area for your furry friends to run around in. The caravan park is situated opposite the Whitby Golf Club and is within walking distance of the beach and promenade – it also featured a tennis court giving all of its guests plenty of things to see and do!

Static Caravan Sites
It’s not just caravan owners who can enjoy caravanning. If you don’t have a caravan or motorhome of your own, you can still benefit from the delights of camping in comfort with a stay at one of the many static caravans and holiday homes to be found in Whitby and the surrounding areas.
Whitby Holiday Park
On the outskirts of Whitby town is the Whitby Holiday Park, perched on a cliff-top and offering magnificent views across the dramatic North Yorkshire Coast. The perfect location for walkers and nature-lovers alike, the park is close to countryside trails, cliff top footpaths and beaches, with the Cleveland Way National Trail accessible from the park itself.
Within the family-friendly park you will find a cafe, clubhouse and shop as well as a children’s playground – you can even bring your pets (well-behaved ones of course!). Its accommodation comes in the form of Platinum, Gold, Pet-Friendly and Access + luxury caravans to suit couples, families, furry friends and visitors with limited mobility or small children.
This park also welcomes Touring Caravans, Motorhomes and Seasonal Tourers.
