- Family-friendly rural site 10 minutes’ drive from Scarborough
- A 15-minute drive to Dalby Forest; half an hour to Filey Brigg
- Part of a 138-acre farm with roe deer and other wildlife on site
For those who can’t decide between coast and countryside, Prospect House Farm Campsite might be a very sensible solution. This small, family-friendly site is set among the green North Yorkshire hills and yet it's only a 10-minute drive from Scarborough’s beaches.
Pitches here are in a field that's part of a 138-acre livestock farm, and they're all set up to be mighty peaceful. The pitching field is a car-free zone and your neighbours in the next-door fields are dairy and longhorn cattle. It's a popular spot for wildlife too – you might spot roe deer, foxes and badgers as you stroll through the meadows or head out on stone-walled bridleways.
Campfires are permitted on site here, so set off for the village of Scalby (five minutes' drive) to pick up provisions from the store (handy to note the village also has a couple of pubs if you'd rather settle in for a cosy evening…) Back at base, amenities include a washing-up area, recycling points and a bathroom block with showers.
Days out? Perhaps a hike through Wykeham Forest up to Raptor Viewpoint for the sight of buzzards, ospreys and kestrels flying overhead, or an outing to Scarborough, where you can relax with fish and chips on the beach while the kids dip their toes in the sea or jump between rockpools. And if you’ve always wanted to have a go at surfing or paddleboarding, this is the place for you, provided you can brave the chilly North Sea waters (though surf schools have wetsuits for hire).

The postcode YO13 0BH will bring you close, but it is highly recommended that you approach from the east via Scalby, as the turn into the entrance is too tight when turning left if you come down Hay Brow from the west.
Scarborough (10 minutes’ drive) has much more to offer than just sandy beaches and watersports (although both of those are excellent prospects). Other options include the medieval fortress, which has expansive coastal views from the grounds, or the chance to make a splash at Peasholm Water Chute – or an even bigger splash at Alpamare waterpark, where the kids can play in the wave pool and on the twisty slides while the adults treat themselves to a spa treatment.
There's no shortage of active pursuits at Dalby Forest (15 minutes), which has cycling and mountain-biking trails (including a World Cup MTB trail), a Go Ape Treetop Challenge and forest Segway rides. Younger children, meanwhile, can have fun searching for the Gruffalo sculptures or building a den.
If that doesn't give you your fill of wildlife, head to Filey Brigg (half an hour), where the dramatic headland stretches into the North Sea and provides a home to guillemots and cormorants, plus grey seals. If you strike it lucky, you might also witness the odd whale or dolphin swim past.
