Goodbye 2017 Season

Bye Bye 2017

So the 2017 holiday season is almost over!! 😲 It's been an absolutely brilliant season and we have loved every minute of it. We hope everyone who has stayed with us this year has also enjoyed themselves as much as we have and we would like to thank you all for your custom.

We have had some excellent feedback about our newly refurbished Galleon Bar, and we hope this will just keep getting better & better.

If you have enjoyed your stay here and would like to come again, or if you have never stayed here before and are thinking about it then we are now taking bookings for 2018.  

For touring caravans we have grass pitches with electric hook up from as little as £21 per night based on 2 people, and for motorhomes / campervans there are also some hard standing pitches available from £21.

If you fancy a pitch with a stunning view then our sea view pitches start from as little as £22 per night for 2 people, also with electric hook up included in the price. These sea view pitches do sell out very quickly and advanced booking is highly recommended, especially for bank holidays and the 6 weeks of the Summer holidays. Please note that for bank holiday weekends we only take a minimum of 3 night bookings.

Don't worry if you don't have your own caravan / motorhome as we have our own static caravans that we hire out. During the main 6 week Summer holiday you can hire a caravan for weekly breaks which run from Saturday to Saturday, and during the rest of the season we also do short breaks which can either be Monday to Friday or Friday to Monday. Please ring us for a quote or check out our web site for further details.

We have a selection of caravans to suit everyone. We have Pet friendly caravans so you can bring your furry friends with you, Gold rated caravans with all your mod cons, and Platinum rated caravans for that extra bit of added luxury. We also have a disabled access caravan which has more space for wheelchair or pushchair access. It also has a ramp leading up to the door instead of steps.

Whitby has events going on for most of the year from Steam Punk and Goth Weekends, to Whitby's famous regatta, music events including 60's  and Soul and many more. These are just a few of the dates we already know of but keep an eye on our face book page for updates on future events...

As well as all the events listed above there are also numerous shows on throughout the year plus some events that we don't have the dates for just yet.

If you want to come to Whitby to experience any of the events on offer then we are the perfect location for your holiday. On the park we have our Galleon Bar, a cafe serving home cooked meals, a shop and a launderette. For our touring customers we also have very clean, well maintained toilet & shower block with hair dryers installed which are free to use.

If you prefer to come to Whitby at quieter times when there are no events taking place then don't worry as the Galleon Bar is open for the entire season so you can just enjoy a quiet drink with your family and friends. Even your little furry friends can come in too as there is a designated dog area within the bar. We do have live acts on at weekends throughout the 6 week Summer break and there are usually games of bingo, pig racing and other fun activities for you to join in with.

One of the best things about Whitby are the beaches. We have our very own beach directly off the park. This is a fantastic beach for fossil hunting and you can also take your dogs onto it all year round.  Whitby beach is a lovely sight with all the colourful beach huts and the pier arms stretching out to sea. You can walk along the whole length of the beach from Saltwick Bay to Sandsend providing the tide is out. Please make sure you check the tide times before you do walk the length of the beach though because the tide does come right in and can cut you off.

Whatever Whitby means to you, whether it's your hundredth visit or even your first, staying with us is an excellent base. Because we are on the Cleveland Way footpath it means there is easy walking access to both Whitby and Robin Hood's Bay straight off the park.

If you're not that into walking then we are only a very short drive out of Whitby town centre and all the taxi firms know us well so you will never have to worry about them not turning up as they are all very reliable. You could also drive into Whitby from us as there are several car parks available throughout the town. If you head into town for an evening meal then the council car parks are free after 6pm all year round.

So if you want to book your next break away in wonderful Whitby then you can ring us now on:

Whitby Autumn Events

Whitby Autumn Events

  • Bram Stoker
  • Illuminated Abbey
  • Goth Weekend

        Bram Stoker

        Some visitors to Whitby are unaware of how the town is connected to Dracula. In 1897 Bram Stoker, a famous Irish Novelist wrote his famous novel, he often visited our seaside town and used Whitby as a backdrop for some of the scenes he described in his book.

        Whilst staying in Whitby he would listen to the townsfolk stories, which he then used those facts in his tale, for example, a few years before he visited Whitby, the Demetrius, a ship containing coffins for burial, hit the rocks near the harbour mouth and all it's contents were washed overboard. 

        Commemorative Plaque

        Over the coming days the decaying cargo was found on the towns beaches all along the coast.
        The Demetrius became the Russian schooner Demeter and all hands aboard were dead, Dracula, in the form of a dog, bound ashore and ran up the famous 199 steps to the graveyard in St Mary's church grounds.
        whilst Dracula stayed in Whitby, at number 6 Royal Crescent, he researched East European folklore in the towns library, there is a commemorative plaque on the wall of 6 Royal Crescent.

        Whilst Stoker was sitting in a local Inn he noticed pigeons tapping at their own reflections at dusk, and this is believed to be his inspiration of having Dracula tapping on Lucy's bedroom window with his long finger nails.
        If you have visited Whitby you will have a good idea of the streets and their locations in the town from his accurate descriptive and you will realise that very little has changed.

        Opposite the quayside is The Dracula Experience, a visitor attraction taking you on a trip 
        into the darkness and through the Dracula story with actors and animated displays seeking to create an air of horror and terrify you.There is also a themed ‘Dracula walk’ that takes you through the streets with the ‘storywalker’ Harry Collett, he takes on a walk and talk where Dracula once stalked!

        “Then as the cloud passed I could see the ruins of the Abbey coming into view; and as the edge of a narrow band of light as sharp as a sword-cut moved along, the church and the churchyard became gradually visible. Whatever my expectation was, it was not disappointed, for there, on our favourite seat, the silver light of the moon struck a half-reclining figure, snowy white. The coming of the cloud was too quick for me to see much, for shadow shut down on light almost immediately; but it seemed to me as though something dark stood behind the seat where the white figure shone, and bent over it. What it was, whether man or beast, I could not tell…” (extract from Dracula)

        Illuminated Abbey

        Come along and witness Bram Stoker's inspiration in a different light as Whitby Abbey is once again dramatically illuminated.
        As you explore the Abbeys Gothic splendour, our costumed characters will introduce the darker side of the past with tales of grave robbing and witch trials. You will also have the opportunity to experience a live performance of Dracula to complete your visit. 
        You can take a wander round the glowing ruins between 6pm and 8.30pm, do wrap up warm and make sure you pack your camera as you will capture some spectacular pictures.
        There will be costumed performances throughout, and our much-loved Dracula performance at 8.30pm. Halloween fancy dress encouraged!

        Illuminated Abbey

        Goth Weekend

        Whitby Goth Weekend aka WGW is only 1 day away:

        The "weekend" starts during the day on the Friday and fringe events are held on Thursday, Sunday and Monday including club nights, markets, and a charity football match between visiting goth team Real Gothic, and local team Stokoemotiv Whitby.
