Abbey views from pitches

General

  • Basic site on a working farm overlooking Whitby and the North Sea
  • A five-minute drive from centre of Whitby, 35 minutes from Scarborough
  • Less than five minutes’ walk from brewery, beach and Whitby Abbey

When stays full of gothic drama push all the right buttons, head along to Abbey Farm Showfield, a family-friendly site five minutes’ drive from the centre of Whitby on the Yorkshire coast.

This is a top spot for back-to-basics stays, as the site is set up with just Elsan and waste water points and a small toilet block. There’s no electric hook-up or showers, so be prepared to rough it a little.

The site’s well placed enough to more than make up for the simple facilities though – it’s less than five minutes’ walk to Whitby Brewery, Whitby Abbey and the top of the famed 199 Steps, and just a little over five minutes’ walk to the nearest beach.

Those keen on stretching legs might like to set out on the Cleveland Way long-distance path (a 109-mile route joining Helmsley and Filey), which slinks past about 300 feet from the site. If something less lengthy appeals more, opt instead for a stroll into Whitby itself (a 10-minute walk or five-minute drive) for more beaches, an RNLI museum, the Captain Cook Memorial Museum (and HMS Endeavour replica) and whale-spotting boat trips. Be sure, while out and about, to pop into as many fish and chip shops as possible too – stomachs will be grateful.

Please note

This site has no on-site shower facilities.

The site caters for families (immediate members) and couples only - bookings from all other forms of groups are not accepted.

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro).

This site is at the top of a cliff so it can get very windy at times, please be careful when erecting tents, awnings and gazebos.

    We arrived on a blustery day at Abbey Farm with a warm welcome and freedom to pitch our tent in the huge field wherever we liked. The ground was firm and flat. Back to nature basic camping here, with a small block of toilets available for use which were kept constantly clean. Great spot to explore the whole of Whitby with ease and would recommend to others and definitely be back!

    Disliked: 

    Only 3 toilets no hot water or dryers or paper towels for handwashing. Very muddy at entrance to toilets so toilets very wet and dirty. Some kind of matting would stop this but it seems no one bothers.
    Over priced at £25 per night.

Local attractions

Not quite done with seaside days just yet? Make the 35-minute drive to Scarborough, farther south on the Yorkshire coast, where – as well as more sandy stretches – guests can explore the Scarborough Fair Collection, get adrenaline pumping at Luna Park, wander about the Italian gardens, and spy out the marine species at Sea Life Sanctuary.

Turn away from the sea, then, for inland explores starting in the sprawling North York Moors National Park (10 minutes), which is home to Go Ape Dalby treetop courses (35 minutes) and the rides and animal shows at Flamingo Land (40 minutes).

There’s a healthy dose of history to be had hereabouts too, with Ormesby Hall (40 minutes), Nunnington Hall (55 minutes), Rievaulx Terrace (one hour) and the spectacular Castle Howard (55 minutes) – famed double for Brideshead in both productions of Brideshead Revisited – within relatively easy reach.

Must see

  • Whitby Abbey (0.2 miles)
  • The Moors National Park Centre (11.8 miles)
  • Dalby Forest Visitor Centre (15.1 miles)

National Trust

  • Yorkshire Coast (7.6 miles)
  • Bridestones, Crosscliff and Blakey Topping (13.0 miles)
