Thorpe Hall Caravan and Camping Site is a quiet and peaceful place to stay at, sheltered by the kitchen garden walls and hidden away in the valley of the Gypsey Race; perhaps a little like a secret garden.
Disappointing to say the least. This is the second time we have visited this site, the first was last year and this time over the bank holiday weekend. Vastly over priced and a minimum stay of four days at bank holidays...why do some sites do this?
The 'Paddock' area is nice and peaceful, although slopes from front to back, as does all the site. The main area, not having restrictions on the size of tents, was like a rabbit warren. Tents seemingly pitched anywhere with no regard to fire safety and cars parked just anywhere. if you are pitched in the 'Paddock' then you have a fair walk to the toilet block, which is situated at the other end of the site.
The site is in what was once the walled garden to Thorpe Hall. The walls are still there, but just over the wall is the scenic route to Bridlington, a road used as a race track for high powered motorbikes....all day.
There is a pub in Rudston village, a nice stroll, again vastly over priced, both for drinks and food. For the price of a pint of lager in there I get a pint and a half in my local and the food is 50%more than I pay in my local.
So to put it in a nutshell. If you like paying through the nose for a pitch, like your caravan chocked up level, like the sound of high powered motorbikes and taking out a personal loan for a night at the pub then that is up to you. It will be a long time before I go to Thorpe Hall caravan site again.
On the good side the manager is a wonderful woman
