General

  • Beautiful sea views above Robin Hood's Bay
  • Coastline a short walk away through the farm
  • Four miles from Whitby for boat trips and golden sands

Ever been to Robin Hood's Bay? To fish, fossil hunt, birdwatch or potter among its comely cobbled streets? If not, steal some time from work for a North Yorkshire coastline holiday, based above the bay on a farm park with stellar sea views and scenic countryside surrounds.

Bay Ness Farm is about 25 minutes' walk from Robin Hood's Bay, across the farm and via an old railway track to the coastline: spectacular views along the way, including of boats in the bay and ships out to sea, come as standard.

From the bay, hikers can join the long-distance trail the Cleveland Way on its 110-mile run from Helmsley to the Brigg at Filey, or just mosey around the town's shops, pubs and tearooms among the old streets. Whitby is about four miles to Robin Hood Bay's south.

Barbecues are allowed at Bay Ness Farm (land your own fish at Robin Hood's Bay three-mile expanse) and ice pack freezing is available to keep your catch fresh.

Please note

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

On leaving the site there is no need to check out, but please don't park in the bottom yard unless you are leaving someone with the vehicle as the site owners may need access to the barns.

Nice site with good facilities and excellent views, but sloped fields 19/08/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Henry J. Confirmed

  • Non-electric grass trailer tent or tent pitch

  • Liked: 

    Great views, short walk in to Robin Hood's Bay, excellent opportunities for walking around the campsite. It was only 5 minute walk to sit on the cliffs and watch the sea, and around 25 mins to the beach. The showers and washing up taps worked well, and the owner was friendly. We also appreciated the offer of phone charging in the reception. There was plenty of space for our car and tent. The view from the campsite shows the whole bay and is very impressive. There are no trees in the immediate vicinity so this was one of the very few times I have been camping and not had to worry about midge bites.

    Disliked: 

    The campsite is not flat, so we were sleeping on a hill. We managed to secure a particularly flat part so it wasn't an issue for us, but much of the campsite is very sloped and would be difficult to sleep on (however the whole countryside in the area is hilly and sloped, which provides excellent views).
    A camp shop would also have been appreciated, but nothing was offered, meaning food and disposable BBQ's had to be purchased in Robin Hood's Bay and carried up, but this provided little issue.
    We struggled to locate the correct field, but this may be due to an old Sat-Nav.

From the manager...

Hi

there is a sainburys superstone which is 4 miles away and on the route to us and at this time of year has a pallet of bbqs in the foyer so theres no point running a shop as we couldnt compete price wise my adivce is to stock up there and they had a car

location wise we show you the fields when you arrive and its why we walk you round to show you where everything is

and for finding us your confirmation has a set of directions which says

dont rely on your sat nav for the last mile as it will take you to another farm at the top of it

in towns postcodes tend to cover 3 to five houses in the country it works the same but its farms so our postcode covers three roads and 1000 acres hence the directions

    Beautiful location and outstanding views. If your luck enough to wake early to see the sunrise this is a must.
    Lovely friendly service. Left to own devices but help was to hand if needed.
    Good selection of pitches.

    Disliked: 

    Not much to dislike however if I had to pick something I'd say possibly more showers. Maybe it was me but everyone seemed to want to shower at the same time.

Easy to find, easy to stay ... easy to return one day! 18/08/2017

  • Liked: 

    Bay Ness was simply fantastic!
    I had read the reviews - all kinds - and, having been there for four days found the place to faultless. The farm was easy to find and well laid out. Checking in was easy and Mike was clear with all there was to know. The showers and toilets were private and spotless throughout - don't go first thing or you'll find you may have to wait a few minutes for a shower - but what's a few minutes on holiday. The views are amazing and there is plenty of room to mark-out your own niche space. Drinking water is easily accessible across the site.

    Location: Whitby was a 10 minute drive, with a big Sainsbury's on the way if needed. Robin Hood's Bay is a short 25 minute walk down a untarred track (so firm shoes!), then a level wide path the rest of the way.

    We had an amazing time and it was easy to be there. I would stay again and definitely recommend Bay Ness.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing - don't expect the same weather as on Whitby or RHB beaches - they are both sheltered. You'll experience some bracing winds, though they add to the experience. Take a good windbreak if you think it'll be an issue for you - and if you intend to use a BBQ.

Fabulous views with very friendly, helpful owners and clean facilities 16/08/2017

  • Liked: 

    We are in our forties (I begrudge having to tick the 'mature couple' box!)
    We loved the views over the sea from this hilltop position, just be prepared for the North Yorkshire winds!
    The owners were very welcoming and helpful and were up early, busy cleaning the showers and toilets. They will charge your phone in the house overnight if you have your lead and plug, which is useful if you have no means of charging it yourself.
    We liked the fact that it is quite a small site and they don't take large groups such as stag/hen parties as it was nice and peaceful at night.

    Disliked: 

    I think dislike is too strong, more a caution...the track in and out is quite narrow and bumpy, also it is a good idea to make sure you have wedges with you as there aren't many flat spots on the site.

Directions


The farm is located off the B1447, which can be approached from the A171 Scarborough to Whitby road.

Please be aware that some satnavs take customers to Greenhills, which is the farm to the south of us on the map. Please follow the directions below to ensure you get to Bay Ness Farm!

Satnavs should be set to YO22, High Lane, but they are not very accurate for the last mile.

If you are coming from Pickering on the A169 Moors Road do not follow the signs to Little Beck (unless you like an exciting life!) but continue into Whitby.

Leave Whitby heading towards Scarborough until you reach the village of Hawsker (around 1.5 miles) and turn left on to the B1447 (signposted to Robin Hood's Bay).

From the B1447 (approximately 2 miles from Hawsker village) and just before the church, you will pass 4 terraced cottages. High Lane is the lane of the left, immediately past these cottages. You should turn left and proceed along High Lane, until some farm buildings are reached. Continue following the track as it bears to the left (DO NOT FOLLOW YOUR SATNAV AND TURN RIGHT DOWN THE HILL PAST THE HOUSE, AS THIS ROAD IS NARROW.)

Eventually this track becomes a concrete sleeper corrugated track, continue to follow this track as it leads you down to Bay Ness Farm.

Please stop before entering the second yard, which has a big stone at its entrance, as space to turn round is limited and it is an uphill reverse to leave the yard.

Please attend reception which is located at the end of the second concrete yard (past the big stone) on the right on your arrival and book on for your visit. Reception is located on the right of the main courtyard. Please don't park within 10 metres of the fire points as it blocks the access roads for other users.

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

To the bay and casting off first: anglers rate the fishing from Robin Hood's Bay's sea wall and its hundreds of marks to be among the most scenic in North Yorkshire: fish here day and night for whoppers of up to 20lb.

As well as picking up a section of Cleveland Way, the bay is also the end point for the 192-mile Coast to Coast Walk, so walkers might care to direct themselves towards its starting point in Cumbria with a 19-mile hike to Glaisdale, passing Falling Foss waterfall and Sleights Moor.

Feeling faint at the thought? Have an easier ramble from Robin Hood's Bay to Boggle Hole or Maw Wyke.

Elsewhere, arm yourself with tourist info from reception to see what's what in the surrounding area and North Yorkshire coast, like the gothic vibe, boat trips, golden sands and lots of leisure and pub opps at Whitby (a lot more sea fishing is available from here too).

From Whitby, drive, cycle or take the Coastliner bus to other top spots on the edge of North Yorkshire, like dipping your toes in the sea at Scarborough, the county's seaside capital, or seeing the birds at Bridlington and Bempton Cliffs.

Inland, Bay Ness Farm is in the North York Moors National Park, for a spot of steam train riding, adventure sports, or yet more walking among its wide open heather moorland, bluebell woods and tiny villages.
