Family Holidays Stress Free

Going on holiday is never easy, particularly when you have children and pets to think about too.  Staycations are becoming more and more popular as there is less hassle and you can take the whole family with you too – even the dog!!  

If you are going to holiday at home, then there is only one place for you to go........and that's to the Seaside!!  Every holiday should be spent within close proximity to the beach.  Whether you are young, or old, everyone likes a beach holiday.  Okay, so the weather may not be the same as in Spain or the Canaries, but who wants to spend 4 hours stuck on a plane and in the airport, only to be delayed for several hours??  No, I didn't think you would!

One of the best things about living in Britain is that you are never too far away from the seaside.  All you need to do is just jump in the car and within a couple of hours you are there!  Okay, so it may take a little longer if you are towing a caravan, but there's nothing better than being the first one to be able to spot the sea!

The hardest part is choosing where you want to go.  Do you go North, South, East or West!?  Well how about the North East Coast.  Nothing beats a holiday along the North East Coastline (and yes I am biased as I do live here!)  But once you have paid this part of the Coast a visit, you will never want to go anywhere else!!  

Whitby is one of the best places along the North East Coast to come for a family holiday as it caters for everyone young and old alike!  People from all over the country, (and other countries too), come to visit this picturesque seaside town, and some (like myself) end up never leaving!

There are plenty of walks along the beautiful coastline to other amazing seaside villages, all of which have amazing stories to tell and are worth a day trip to see.

This part of the coastline is also known as the Jurassic Coast and is the ideal place to come fossil hunting!  We here at Whitby Holiday Park are situated in an area known as Saltwick Bay which is well known for fossils.  We have direct access to the beach where people spend hours hunting for fossils.  But be warned, keep an eye on that tide, as once it starts to come in, it comes in fast!  Just a short 6 and a half mile walk along the Cleveland Way footpath, which runs along the cliffs, is the very popular fishing village of Robin Hoods Bay.  With its cobbled streets and quaint little shops this is another beautiful village that you must see whilst here. I like to walk there and then catch the bus back

One of the best things about having a staycation is that once you have arrived, all you need to do is unpack and relax!  If you are lucky enough to be staying with us here at Whitby Holiday Park then why not unwind and relax with a nice cold pint in our Galleon Bar.  We also have a cinema room where you can relax with a family film for a couple of hours.  And don't worry about having to leave your beloved four legged friend stuck in the caravan as we allow dogs in The Galleon Bar too! 

Our static caravans that we hire out are like a home away from home.  Most of them come with a double room, a twin room and a pull out bed in the lounge.  They all have a bathroom which has a shower, sink and toilet so the only thing you need to worry about is who is going to use it first!  They all have their own kitchen facilities too, so if you decide that you want to cook, you can do. If not, we have our very own cafe on site which does take away!  We do also provide all of our static caravans with their own TV which comes with Freesat and a DVD player, perfect for those cosy nights in!  We even have specific caravans where you can bring your beloved four legged friend with you on holiday too!  We even provide a bowl, blanket, and a few little treats for them to make them feel at home too 🐶

As well as having The Galleon Bar on site, we also have a cafe and well stocked shop on site too, which provides most essentials for a caravan holiday.  So if you really don't want to go anywhere, you don't have too as everything is provided for you.

We really are the perfect stress free holiday, and pretty much right on your doorstep!  We have stunning views of both the moors and sea, both of which are within easy access of the Park.

So when it comes to that time of year again when you are starting to plan your next holiday away, why not pick somewhere that little bit closer to home and stress free.


Summer Dog Care

Summer Dog Care

Whitby Holiday Park is dedicated to the welfare of all pets staying on our site. 
Your pet is on holiday too and we would like to ensure they enjoy their stay with us.

Summer is the time of year when we should take extra care of our canine friends.
There are many precautions that can be taken to keep your dog safe and well on a hot day.

Please see below a handy guide to keeping your dogs happy and healthy when you are enjoying the outdoors together this summer:

    Don't excessively walk your dog - walking is a form of exercise and can cause discomfort to your pet and risk them over heating - you can purchase Doggie Boots to prevent their paws getting burnt on the hot ground


    Walk your dog in the early morning or late evening - temperatures are cooler at these times during the day and it will reduce the risk of your pet suffering from heatstroke

    Be aware of how hot the tarmac is outdoors - you should always check the tarmac with your hand before allowing your dog to walk on it, if it's too hot for your hand then it is too hot for your pets paws

    Always provide plenty of water and shade for your dog either inside or when you are out and about with your pet

    Always consider the outside temperature when travelling in a car with your dog, try to avoid congested roads and busy travel periods in the day as your pet could overheat when you are stuck in heavy traffic. 
    Consider travelling at cooler times during the day, and always ensure there are plenty of places to stop for a break during your journey.
    Do not ever leave your dog in a car during high temperatures, dogs overheat fast and leaving them for as little as 20 mins could be fatal to your pet


    Dogs will develop heatstroke if they become too hot and are unable to reduce their body temperatures by panting, this can be fatal. You should be aware if your dog is more prone to heatstroke than others....dogs that are old, young, dogs that have have heavy coats or dogs with short flat faces, such as pugs, boxers, etc. 
    Dogs that are suffering with certain diseases or are on some types of medication are also more prone to heatstroke.

    Listed below are the 5 signs of heatstroke:
    1. Is the dog panting heavily?
    2. Is the dog drooling excessively?
    3. Does the dog appear Lethargic, drowsy or uncoordinated
    4. Is the dog Vomiting
    5. Has the dog collapsed
    If you notice your dog showing any of the above signs please follow the emergency first aid steps listed below and contact the nearest vet if necessary.

    Emergency First Aid 

    If your dog does become overheated  their best chance of survival is to reduce their body temperature as a matter of urgency, this will need to be done gradually as they could easily go into shock. 
    If your dog has collapsed due to overheating you should call a vet immediately, if the dog is showing signs of becoming over heated then please carry out the first aid steps listed below:

    1. Move the dog to a shaded cool area
    2. Start to pour room temperature water on the dogs body - do not use cold water -as this may cause the dog to go into shock
    3. Encourage the dog to drink small amounts of room temperature water
    4. Continue to pour small amounts of room temperature water onto the dog, this should be done until the dogs breathing starts to settle. do not put too much on so the dog starts to shiver
    5. Once you have managed to control the dogs body temperature and their breathing is settling down you should call your local vets and have them checked over

    Our dogs are part of the family, when going on Family walks or Summer strolls their welfare is as important as yours. It is essential to ensure your outings are suitable for them to enjoy too. 


    The Cleveland Way Walk


    The Cleveland Way coastal path runs for 110 miles from Helmsley in North Yorkshire and ends in Filey on the Yorkshire Coast.

    Part of this famous footpath runs directly through Whitby Holiday Park so if you are staying with us and fancy a nice walk then you have one on your doorstep.

    In one direction you can walk into Whitby town which is about 1 miles distance and is a really easy walk taking in views of the coast and Whitby Abbey along the way. 

    If you walk the other way you will reach Robin Hood's Bay first and the distance is about 7 miles. This part of the walk is a little bit more challenging than the path to Whitby but it's well worth making the effort as you do get to see some beautiful scenery. The footpath takes you right along the cliff edge and past an old lighthouse. You will also traverse lots of steps up and down, cross a couple of steams which run through some lovely tree lines, and pass plenty of fields full of sheep, cows or horses.

    With this walk right on our doorstep there is no better place to stay in Whitby. You could park your car up for the length of your stay and enjoy all the lovely scenery on foot. The beach is also accessible directly from the park where you can sunbathe, hunt for fossils, make sand castles or even check out the local ship wrecks.


    We have some excellent accommodation for you to choose from with a variety to suit all requirements...

    Pet Friendly caravans so you can bring along your family pets.
    Gold caravans for that home away from home feel.
    Access Plus caravan for anyone that needs disabled access or even just a little bit more room.
    Platinum caravans for that added bit of luxury.

    All of our static caravans are fully double glazed with gas central heating.

    You have a choice of...

    A full week break of 7 nights which runs Saturday to Saturday.
    A weekend break of 3 nights which runs Friday to Monday (except during the school holidays).
    A mid week break of 4 nights which runs Monday to Friday (except during the school holidays).

    If you have your own touring caravan, motorhome or campervan then we also have a touring field which can accommodate any vehicle up to 28ft long. All of our pitches on the touring field are on grass and include electric hook up, and you can choose either a sea view pitch which overlooks the bay or one of our Abbey view pitches which have views of Whitby Abbey.

    We have just 4 hard standing pitches available for motorhomes and campervans and these pitches have electric and water. On the hard standing pitches you won't be able to use an awning though.



    The facilities on the park include a well stocked mini market, a cafe serving home cooked meals and a family bar. Within the bar area there is also a games room, hub room and a cinema room with comfy sofas.

    Also on the park we have modern toilet and shower facilities and a pot washing room  for our touring customers, and a launderette for anyone who wishes to use it.


    If you require any more information or just want to book your next holiday you can do this either by checking our web site or for a personal touch why not give our friendly reception team a ring on 01947 602664. Our office is open every day from 8am.

    Four Weeks and Counting!!!


    The 2018 season is almost upon us and we are very busy getting prepared. I have now been here for a full year and have loved every bit of it, and I don't mind saying I am seriously looking forward to what the new season may bring.

    We re-open on Saturday 3rd March for our touring field and for our static caravans. For anyone who owns their own Holiday Homes here we are open from 1st March and we look forward to welcoming everyone back and also welcoming any new owners we may have for this year.

    The first big date in the calendar is Easter weekend which is very early this year. Good Friday falls on 30th March and we have taken a great deal of bookings for this weekend already. I can't wait to see the park full again 😄. 

    This year's first Goth weekend isn't far behind Easter. It falls on 27th - 29th April and again these dates are filling up very fast.

    There are so many other events going on throughout the year in Whitby that certain dates are filling up quickly. Keep an eye on our facebook page for updates.
