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 – and 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.

    Right from our arrival we were made to feel welcome.The site was spotlessly clean and tidy.Toilets always had soap and toilet rolls and was probably the best we have ever been on,Electricity chared by the meter was not expensive it cost us just over £3 for 4 nights.We will definitly recomend the site and will be going back at a later date.Food in the bar was home made and it was one of the best meals eaten in a pub.Keep up the good work.

    Everything clean and well maintained. Friendly staff, very nice clubhouse and restaurant.
    Plots level and in good condition.

    Disliked: 

    Scarborough is described as 2 miles away. Unfortunately this is down a steep hill, on a busy road with poor sidewalks.
    Suggest using a car, alternatively ask at reception regarding bus service. Bus to Scarborough station at 10am, returning at 4pm - but check with them.
    WiFi is maintained by others - good strong signal but a little expensive for my liking.

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)
