A message from the Management:
Please note that the park is under new managament from April 2010 and is now run by a family who live on site and whilst we welcome all comments good or bad the three reviews and return owner response are before our time although we have used the comments to make some changes which we hope all our guests will benefit from.

I was a seasonal visitor for the last 3 years and only gave it up when work changed my attedance pattern. The park is brilliant, very quiet but well maintained. Keiran and Lisa do a fantastic job. William and June and Mick will do almost anything to help you. Having left the park and visited other parks you soon realise how good you had it at ladycross. Perhaps one day my work will change again and we can go back to Ladycross
Decided to head towards Whitby on a Sunday evening after a great day at Dalby Forrest. As i had not booked anything i hit the google page on the iphone and started looking for local digs for me and the kids. Came across Ladycross Plantation so give em a call. The gentleman i spoke to was very polite and offered me a choice of soft or hard standing. As the weather over the moors was not so good i opted for the hard standing. The park was very nice and surrounded with trees. Others on the site were very pleasant and happy to engage in conversation. The shower blocks and toilets were very clean and looked after on a regular basis. would definately recommend this park and will be going back ourselves at some point: June in 2011
A really well run and friendly site, owners were very helpful. The toilet/shower blocks were immaculate and there was two blocks so no waiting about. The site is handy for Egton Bridge village with a couple of really nice pubs that do good and reasonably priced meals with real ale on tap. All in all this is a site that we will certainly visit again in the very near future.: June in 2011
Stayed for the first time at Ladycross for the Easter Weekend. First impressions, well sign posted and easily accessible. The site itself is quite large set in woodlands, it was very quiet which was strange for an Easter weekend but maybe the snow had put people off travelling, very picturesque, (especially after it had snowed!!). The Reception sells basics food stuffs and lots of information on places to visit, a bit thank you to Carol, who advised us on places to eat etc., nothing was to much trouble for her. Shower block was always daily cleaned and showers had hot water, (though my hubby complained on one day there was no hot water!!) I did not have such a problem. Plenty of dog walking areas. Staff helped situate and take off the caravan at the beginning and end of the stay, a big thanks to Paul and his tractor. Only downside it was very wet and muddy, but to be fair any site would be like this at this time of year.
Definately looking forward to returning as we live not far away in Hull
For a site highly starred we expected a lot more.
The site was very basic with fresh water supplies un attended and hand drying facilities broken.
Poorly stocked shop and very little contact with the proprieters.
Dog walk was great though.
Lots to see locally.Great beeches nearby.

'Shop' is to provide basic 'get you by' products as we do not wish to offend the village shop in Egton.
We have 2 sets of wardens running the park and we are around and about as well. We were available if needed.
Hand dryers are NOT broken and if they were deemed to be so, were the staff alerted to this?
Need clarification on 'fresh water supplies un attended' as we do not understand the comment.
Wild and wooly site in Heartbeat land. You really feel away from it all on this hilltop campsite. First rate facilities as you'd expect from a top rated CC site. Play area for the kids.
Local tourism is excellent, with Aidensfield (Grosmont)nearby, the North York moors railway, and Whitby and Scarborough.
