General

  • Take your pick of tent and motorhome pitches or hire a deluxe caravan
  • Award-winning facilities, including laundrette and supermarket
  • Pro-pooches, so feel free to bring your dog along too

Feel free as a bird at award-winning Crows Nest Caravan Park between Scarborough and Filey – you can pitch wherever you like in the roomy tent field and take your pick from pitches that are sheltered, gently sloping, flat or with a sea view overlooking gorgeous Gristhorpe Bay and Scarborough Castle. Not a tent fan? Crows Nest also has standard and luxury tourer/motorhome pitches close to a loo and shower block, or you can travel extra light and nest down in a fully-equipped deluxe caravan with TV, DVD player and Freeview.

Crows Nest Caravan Park is five miles from Scarborough and two and a half miles from Filey, but if you’re taking a break from the seaside/exploring the North Yorkshire coast there’s loads to do on site too: a lounge bar with entertainment in peak season to suit all ages and tastes, family bar with pool tables, a games room, play area close to the tent field for little fledglings and a heated indoor pool with poolside assistants during high season. (Safety is also a priority in the tent field, which is next to the play area and fenced off from the clifftop.)

The loo and shower block is a short walk from the tent field, was fully updated in 2012 and has already won a Loo of the Year award: it has free hot showers, wash basins, hairdryers and socket/shaver points, and there are also family bathrooms and a disabled shower room. Elsewhere on site there’s a pot wash area, launderette, chemical disposal point and a well-stocked supermarket. And, as you can’t come to the coast and not have fish and chips, there’s also a takeaway (but do have more in Scarborough too).

Bringing the family friend? Crows Nest Caravan Park is dog-friendly and dogs are allowed in the conservatory area of the lounge bar.

Should have gone next door 13/07/2016

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Wayne M. Mobile phone icon Confirmed

  • Electric hardstanding touring pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Liked the shop at 'Flower of May Campsite'. Also liked the reception staff and the shop keeper at Flower campsite. Liked the chippy in Filey and the local car boot sales.

    Disliked: 

    Rude check in staff who seem disinterested and not very welcoming.

    Tight pitch spaces, with very little info provided.

    Misleading info on website with regards to beach pictures. Beach is miles away, campsite is basically on a sand cliff with no way down safely to water.

    Really disgusting toilets, empty beer bottles lying on window ledges and in showers for whole trip. Dirty underwear down the side of toilet, excrement smeared on walls and toilets, open drainage which stinks, an old man with asthma for a hand dryer. Fairly poor tbh.

    Shop staff really don't want to be there, not very cheery or helpful or even friendly for that matter. Same can be said for office staff.

    Pool was so cold that both my young children cried when put in, so literally dipped my legs in and had to leave, then was refused my £4 entry fee back! Very petty of them i think especially to do that to a young family who aren't that well off.

    I could go on but really don't want to waste any more time on the place.

    I highly recommend avoiding this campsite and suggest any of the others nextdoor.

Nice, clean ,dog friendly site, although misleading on article. 29/07/2016

hazel_m256264 Confirmed

  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Fish and chip shop was good and handy, shop well stocked , facilities clean although hand dryers need updating your hands would dry quicker blowing on them.
    Good having a dog play area on site ,however some owners still neglected to clear the poo up even though a bin is provided .
    Pub/club on site with entertainment , even though we didnt go, but was not noisey.

    Disliked: 

    Misleading advert and photos of caravan and motorhome pitches , all the sea view pitches are the super pitches which are shown on 95% of the photos ,neglecting to say normal hardstanding pitches are down at the bottom of the site near the pub ,in the middle of surrounding statics with only the view of each others caravans , also tightly packed in like sardines .

From the manager...

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We do have photographs of both types of pitches on the adverts, which clearly show that they are not by the sea. I am sorry that you did not understand the website and individual photograph descriptions, but the photos are in no way misleading.

Directions


Crows Nest Caravan Park is situated just off the main Scarborough to Filey coast road (A165), five miles south of Scarborough and two-and-a-half miles north of Filey.

From the north (Whitby)
Take the A171 road to Scarborough then join the A165 signposted to Filey. After five miles you will come to a roundabout with a Jet petrol station on the corner - turn left at this roundabout. We are then the second caravan park on the left.

From the north (Thirsk)
Take the A170 road to Scarborough then join the B1261 to Gristhorpe. Follow this road to the end: you will come to a roundabout with a Jet petrol station on the corner - go straight on at this roundabout. We are then the second caravan park on the left.

From the south
Take the M18 to the M62 (east) to Howden. Follow the A164 to Bridlington, then join the A165 road to Scarborough. Two-and-a-half miles north of Filey you will come to a roundabout with a Jet petrol station on the corner - turn right at this roundabout. We are then the second caravan park on the left.

From the west
Take the A64 road to Scarborough (via York). After a series of roundabouts turn right at the roundabout with a McDonalds restaurant on the corner, follow this road until you meet the B1261. Turn right here signposted towards Filey. Follow this road to the end: you will come to a roundabout with a Jet petrol station on the corner - go straight on at this roundabout. We are then the second caravan park on the left.

Local attractions

Leave the car behind: buses running between Scarborough and Bridlington pick up from the end of the Crows Nest Caravan Park drive and there are discount day tickets available to keep more money for seaside rock.

The kids will probably clamour first for Scarborough, Britain’s first seaside resort and the ‘Brighton of the north’: there are the North Bay and South Bay beaches to bounce around as well as the traditional seaside fairground and donkey rides, but Scarborough’s also a hotspot for culture vultures, with the Scarborough Open Air Theatre, Scarborough Art Gallery and Rotunda Museum alongside regular festivals and events throughout the year.

Fab Filey is even closer: this Edwardian town has a five-mile stretch of sand and is backed by the peninsula and cliffs of Filey Brigg – this is the place to birdwatch and wildlife spot, with rockpools along the beach and many species of birds and beasts to see all year round. The 110-mile Cleveland Way starts here for hiking your way around Yorkshire’s history and heritage: Scarborough Castle, Whitby Abbey, Mount Grace Priory and Rievaulx Abbey are all along the route.

There’s more birdwatching at Bridlington, with the RSPB reserve Bempton Cliffs nearby, but if that’s making the kids twitchy fly along to the town itself instead for bathing around the quay and promenading around the gardens, or go north from Scarborough for wacky Whitby, home of more delish fish and chips and guided tours on Captain Cook’s HMS Endeavour (don’t tell the kids it’s a replica).

Away from the seaside and vampires, puff between Whitby and Pickering on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, veer between villages in the North York Moors National Park or get citified around York and Hull, all within easy driving distance of Crows Nest.

Must see

  • Burton Agnes Hall (12.3 miles)
  • Dalby Forest Visitor Centre (14.5 miles)
  • North Yorkshire Moors Railway (17.9 miles)

National Trust

  • Yorkshire Coast (13.3 miles)
  • Bridestones, Crosscliff and Blakey Topping (13.3 miles)
