View of the campsite

General

  • Well-maintained quiet family park close to Scarborough town centre
  • Excellently set for days at Whitby, Pickering, Filey or Bridlington
  • Bar, restaurant, two play areas and games room

How do you fancy a family hol in a family-run park near smashing Scarborough – but in a serene and sheltered setting surrounded by woodland and wide open North Yorkshire countryside?

Giddy up to Jacobs Mount Caravan Park, on the edge of the Forge Valley Woods National Nature Reserve but only two miles from the town centre and beaches of North Yorkshire's seaside capital. It's within easy trotting distance of other county attractions like Whitby, Pickering, Filey or Bridlington if your tastes tend to towns... and the North York Moors, hiking and biking routes, Dalby Forest, steamy vintage railways and a whole heap more if you're more of a countryside connoisseur.

Although it's a quiet family park, Jacobs Mount is well set up with facilities and entertainment: the live goings-on in the pub will keep you amused of an evening, and there's also a restaurant, two play areas and a games room. Barbecues are allowed and a shop is on site for essentials.

Amenities are well covered here too, with heated shower blocks, disabled facilities, a launderette, a washing-up area and a parent and baby washroom.

Please note

Dogs are not allowed in the accommodation units.

A charge of £0.40 applies for the use of the shower.

Single-sex bookings of 3 or more people (couples and immediate family members excepted) are not permitted via Pitchup.com.

Group bookings of 4 or more adults are not permitted (couples and immediate family members excepted).

Continental touring caravans (caravans built with the door on the right-hand side) are not permitted.

In July and August, the bar and restaurant are open Thursday to Sunday and bank holiday Mondays. At all other times, they are open in the evening on Friday and Saturday.

A £5 deposit will be taken for electricity, which is metered on site at £0.17 per kWh. Any monies leftover will be refunded upon departure.

The £10 barrier pass deposit can only be paid in cash.

    Barriers locked between 11.00pm and 8.00am so impossible to stay out late unless you want to leave your car at the entrance to the site and absolutely impossible to make an early start.

Level pitches, very friendly staff, clean.29/10/2019

Reviewer's country: United KingdomAnonymousConfirmed

  • Electric optional hardstanding and grass touring pitch

  • Liked: 

    Stopped at site for a weekend break, amenities were good, made very welcome. The site pub was also fine. The first 2 days we was on site was a wash out, so the level hard standings was very welcome. … No complaints

    Disliked: 

    It was not an easy walk into Scarborough, so we had to book taxi's on the 2 days we was there, at an average of £7.25 per trip. No bus route near by. It might be an idea for the site to try and negotiate reduced fares.

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Splendid seaside days are easily had at Scarborough, two miles from Jacobs Mount Caravan Park and home to the Scarborough Open Air Theatre, Scarborough SEA LIFE Sanctuary, the Rotunda Museum and the North Cliff and South Cliff golf clubs alongside its two beaches (shore fishing from here is rightly recommended too).

Also rightly recommended in the area are days at Filey for birdwatching at Filey Brigg, Bridlington for the RSPB reserve Bempton Cliffs, and Whitby for abbey, fish and chips and Goths lurking gloomily among the churchyard tombstones. The 110-mile Cleveland Way starts at Filey for those who fancy a hike or an amble.

As it's North Yorkshire, history is all around too: potter along to the historic highlights of the Cleveland Way like Whitby Abbey, Mount Grace Priory and Rievaulx Abbey, or have a city day out in York to see its magnif minster, the Jorvik Viking Museum and many tiny cobbled streets.

Must see

  • Dalby Forest Visitor Centre (10.3 miles)
  • North Yorkshire Moors Railway (14.0 miles)
  • Burton Agnes Hall (15.5 miles)

National Trust

  • Bridestones, Crosscliff and Blakey Topping (8.8 miles)
  • Yorkshire Coast (9.5 miles)
