  • A 95-acre woodland site a short drive from the A171
  • Easy access to the stunning Yorkshire coast, moors and Goathland
  • Two-mile nature trail with a pond and modern amenities blocks
You might be relieved this site has 'cross' in its name, as it's near the toothy town of Whitby, famed of course these days for its Goth weekends and those days for being where one Count Dracula leapt ashore to UK soil… But of course Ladycross Plantation Caravan Park has a fair bit more going on for it than that… in fact you could say that the site has a lot of bite…? It's a nifty base from which to flit to the best of North Yorkshire, for one, as it's only 400 yards off the A171 from Teeside to Whitby, and has easy access to the North York Moors National Park and Heartbeat country around Goathlands. And it's set on 95 acres of good-looking woodland, with a two-mile-long nature trail meandering through its trees and past a pond. There's also easy access for caravans and tourers. The on-site pantry shop in the reception area stocks essentials and stacks of leaflets on what to do in the surrounding area (after Whitby, natch). The park also has a book exchange service. Ladycross is run by a family team who have been improving and upgrading the park since taking it over in 2010. Among the features added are two modern and well-maintained toilet and shower blocks with private washrooms and underfloor heating, a waste and water point, and secluded areas for various pitches.

Liked: The pitches are spacious with plenty of room in between each one. The park is spotlessly clean. Staff were friendly and pleasant. The site is surrounded by trees, full of wildlife and with a great trail for running, walking or exercising the dog. The site was handy for the moors, villages and the coast.

Disliked: Wifi is an additional cost.

Fully-serviced hardstanding touring pitch

Liked: Lovely site, superb and very clean facilities and super friendly and helpful staff. Seeing a gap in the weather window, we decided to take a quick 3 day break and chose Ladycross. We didn't use the wi-fi as we take our own dongle on trips so cannot comment on the quality of it but it was available and that is not always the case on most sites. We loved the woodland walks and the general spaciousness of the site. Only five miles from Whitby and the coast and ideally situated for exploring the region. Will definitely stay again.

Disliked: Nothing - it was all great
