Riverside Caravan Park

General

  • Peaceful riverbank site on the edge of North York Moors National Park
  • A 15-minute drive from Scarborough and beaches, 20 minutes from Filey
  • Great spot for anglers, with river fishing on site

Casting about for a peaceful holiday? Hook yourself a spot for a stay at Riverside Caravan Park, a family-friendly site 15 minutes’ drive from the North Yorkshire seaside resort of Scarborough.

Down a quiet country lane, and on the banks of the river Derwent, this is a top site for finding a bit of calm: it's the kind of place where you can listen to the river as it flows by, hear the sounds of the countryside drifting across the fields from neighbouring farms, and maybe nab a patch of riverbank for some fishing.

Music fans might gravitate towards the Scarborough Fair Collection, 15 minutes away, while others might prefer visits to the town’s beach, aquarium, Italian gardens, open-air theatre or golf courses. Want to steer clear of the seaside entirely? Turn instead to North York Moors National Park, less than five minutes from base, for hiking and biking trails, scenic towns and villages, and some fab heritage railways.

Guests keen on keeping getaways low-key and low-on-travel are well served here. The site’s about half a mile from the village of East Ayton, where basic supplies can be sorted in the small convenience store, hungers can be satisfied in the restaurant or chip shop, and thirsts can be quenched in the pub. East Ayton’s also where those of a more exploratory disposition should go for local buses to the coast.

Back on site, there are ladies' and gents' loos, electric showers, and two taps for fresh drinking water.

    A lovely peaceful site near to the coast.
    Owners very friendly and helpful.
    Plenty of space for little people to play.
    Once the shower/loo facilities, washing up facilities are upgraded and modernised this site will be a little gem.
    Although facilities are old and out dated they are kept clean.

    We would stay here again as we have our own facilities.

    Disliked: 

    As mentioned out dated shower/toilet facilities which we understand are going to be upgraded and modernised.

    If you require washing up facilities again very dated need upgrading which again we understand is going to be happening.

    BE aware there is a stream if you visit with little people.

    None of the above took away from the peace and quiet of what has the makings of been lovely site.

    Space. Children loved running around playing and seeing the chickens. I was also impressed that they managed to out the whole family together including a tent pitch. Perfect place to stay for a day at local beaches. Very quiet over night. Lovely friendly staff.

    Disliked: 

    Toilet and shower facilities. Although I know that this is meant to be revamped in the near future, also it didn't make much difference to us with the caravan.

Directions

Local attractions

Sticking close by to start with, anyone who simply can’t get enough of fishing can make the five-minute drive to Wykeham Lakes fishery to land trout, carp, perch and bream, while those who are happiest out in nature should pay a visit to Burton Riggs Nature Reserve (10 minutes' drive) for wanders and birdwatching.

Further afield, travels to the coast come highly recommended. It’s 20 minutes from base to the coastal town of Filey, where there are beaches to sprawl or stroll on, plus a museum, an animal park and birdwatching areas. The town’s also the start of the 110-mile Cleveland Way walking trail.

A 40-minute drive up the coast leads to Whitby, a coastal town that inspired major elements of Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Head this way for more sandy stretches, the spectacularly spooky Whitby Abbey and (during well-timed stays) the Whitby Goth Weekend.

If Whitby Abbey inspired an interest in seeing more stunning old buildings, there are plenty nearby to choose from: it’s 35 minutes to Burton Agnes Hall and Sewerby Hall, 40 minutes to the marvellous Castle Howard (featured in Brideshead Revisited) and 50 minutes to Rievaulx Abbey.

Must see

  • Dalby Forest Visitor Centre (8.6 miles)
  • North Yorkshire Moors Railway (12.1 miles)
  • Flamingo Land Theme Park and Zoo (13.6 miles)
