General

  • Family-focused holiday park in a scenic countryside setting
  • On-site fishing lake and loads of activities to entertain the kids
  • Close to plenty to do on the East and North Yorkshire coasts

Skip to see – and stay at – this holiday park on the sandy East Yorkshire coast: it's likely you’ll love it.

Skipsea Sands Holiday Park is in a scenic countryside and village setting near Driffield, but is only a couple of miles from the stretch of Yorkshire coastline from Flamborough Head to Spurn Point – with Bridlington in between – and within easy driving distance of several sandy beaches. It has its own fishing lake and lands lots of activities and entertainment to float any individual boat.

Guests can be occupied day and night should they so wish: kids can work off energy at the adventure playground, chase a shuttlecock/football or rollerblade around the massive sports hall, before cooling off at the waterjets of the indoor pool, or going along to one of the many organised activities for all ages such as dance, football, water games and a club for the under-fives.

There’s a small charge to use the sports hall and for a couple of other activities like ten pin bowling and the intriguingly named aqua jets, but all other activities are free.

Elsewhere on site, bigger guests have access to the well-equipped park gym, while all ages can pile into the Pavilion family clubhouse for drinks and snacks; there are two other bars on site as well as The Sands diner with restaurant and takeaway.

Evenings are properly covered with a range of glitzy entertainment from live music to family shows.

Prefer to breeze gently through your hols rather than get involved in too much activity? A Jacuzzi, sauna and steam room are on site to bubble placidly at too, all included in your pitch fee.

This site is a member of Parkdean Resorts group.

  • Liked: 

    The park and facilitys were fine

    Disliked: 

    The toilets we dirty mainly from the people who used them. The whole toilet block needs demolishing as its so dated and in such disrepair. Toilets floor is so uneven it was like a big puddle. The chemical waste point was blocked every day. The staff did a good job ie cleaning and sorting issues almost straight away. Plus the whole site needs to have drainage installed. There are better sites out there but with some money spent this would have the makeing of a good site. No direct beach access due to coastal erosion.

    Unfortunately, my car's engine decided it was time for a rest so we could not go. It was a great pity because the two boys I have from Belarus and part of Chernobyl Children's Life Line charity were looking forward to it. I'll be having children from Belarus again next year, and I will look forward to taking them - which I know they will love.

    Sorry I can't give a rating - but I was impressed with the site telephoning me and asking if they could help in anyway

a bit too pricey and far from any sand !!!!! 01/08/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom melanie_b115671 Confirmed

  • Liked: 

    plenty for kids to do and staff were friendly.

    Disliked: 

    The touring pitches were far too close togrther. The shop was small and not very well stocked for the size of the site. Drinks were very expensive in the clubhouse and the glasses were a bit dirty. There is a chip kind of within the campsite. The staff in there are very rude and constantly give out the incorrect change. It is a very long walk to get down onto the beach (all the way through to the next camp site).

Local attractions

The East and North Yorkshire coast is most visitors’ first stop, from the gannets gabbing at Flamborough Head and Bempton Cliffs to the seaside shenanigans and surfing of Scarborough.

If it’s raining, take the kids to Terror Tower: its two buildings and three floors’ worthy of grisly special effects should silence even the most horrifying sprog.

Flit to fab Filey for five miles of beach, its funfair and the start of the Cleveland Way; and nearby Bridlington for the Bird of Prey and Animal Park, harbour spy mystery trail and Bondville Model Village.

Further along the coast, goths and others enjoy beautiful Whitby; then have fish and chips at the Magpie café after an afternoon seeing Whitby Abbey and the replica of HMS Endeavour.

Closer to home is the 11th-century Norman motte and bailey Skipsea Castle, managed by English Heritage and to the west of Skipsea village.

Not quite as old but still impressive in our (history) book is Fort Paull, the only Napoleonic fortress still in Yorkshire and now with a museum and the last surviving Blackburn Beverley aircraft in the world. Bring a camera: you’ll want to snap the views from the fort over the Humber estuary.

Inland yields loads to do too, with the North York Moors and Yorkshire Dales National Park both within driving distance; as it’s Yorkshire, you’ll find stately pads, historic houses and museums of all bents easily accessible too.

A good option for a city day trip is lovely York, about an hour’s drive away: take a sightseeing bus around first to get a flavour of this chocalatey city’s history, then mosey around York Minster, take the kids to Jorvik Viking Centre, or just go shopping in The Shambles and the city centre.

Must see

  • Burton Agnes Hall (6.3 miles)
  • Ferens Art Gallery (17.8 miles)
  • The Deep (18.0 miles)

National Trust

  • Maister House (17.8 miles)
  • Bridestones, Crosscliff and Blakey Topping (27.8 miles)

Cycle routes
