Sandfield House Farm Caravan Park is a popular and award winning, five-star rated holiday park a short distance outside the popular seaside town of Whitby and within the North Yorkshire Moors National Park. The park is just a quarter of a mile from the nearest beach, and many of the 50 touring and motorhome pitches at Sandfield House Farm offer breathtaking sea views.
All of the pitches stand on level ground and are hard standing offering electric hook-ups. Family pets are welcome to come and stay at the park but it is requested that they are kept on a lead at all times when outside, and there is a fenced exercise area where dogs can be walked.
There is an additional collection of facilities on the site to ensure guests enjoy the maximum level of comfort and convenience during their stay. These include a shower block, washbasins, toilets, washing up room and a laundry room. Chemical waste disposal is available on the site, while Calor gas and basic caravan consumables are stocked in reception.
Parents and grand parents looking to keep younger ones entertained or indulge in some sporting activities themselves can enjoy the children’s play field, which features a football goal as well as offering plenty of space to run around in, and the on-site tennis court.
Additional facilities close to the site include local shops, with a supermarket open until 10pm nightly, as well as a petrol station with cash machine, and food outlets selling Chinese takeaway, fish and chips, and pizza.
Heading into Whitby is easy; the town is a short walk towards the beach and a scenic stroll along the promenade, while at the opposite end of the beach guests will find the charming village of Sandsend, which has a welcoming pub serving great tasting food and local ales.
One of the main attractions of Sandfield House Farm Caravan Park is the site’s close proximity to so many places to see in the area. Guests can take the North York Moors Steam Railway from Grosmont, a short distance away from the park, while the National Park visitor centre can be found in Danby and is brilliant for discovering organised pursuits on the moors or for getting inspired to do your own thing.
In and around Whitby itself guests will find Whitby Abbey, The Captain Cook Museum, The Dracula Experience, and Pannett Park. The Mini Monsters children’s indoor play centre is also close by for the days when the weather isn’t great.
Further afield, guests can always find something to entertain them. A short drive north takes you to the Cleveland towns of Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, and Stockton-on-Tees, while the famous cathedral city of Durham is also a relatively short drive away should you wish to visit. All are great places for shopping and culture, while Durham’s cathedral is one of the most famous in the UK.
To the south, guests have the option of exploring the coast as much as they like, with Filey, Bridlington, and Scarborough all easy to get to via a pleasant, scenic drive.

For a five star rating it was extremely poor.
You pay by cheque or cash which in the 21st century is a bit behind.
The whole park appears to still be in the 70 to 80's.
The shower facilities are barely adequate. The showers for disabled people were based at the entrance of the park along way from the main pitches, they smelt unpleasant and were mouldy. The pitches were not level and too close together. However staff were very helpful and kind. The view of the sea was fantastic.

Our second visit to this wonderful caravan park. The staff were very helpful, the site is maintained to a very high standard. The location is great with super views over the golf course to the sea!
The walk from the site down to the beach takes 5 minutes and then you can take the promenade to Whitby or walk along the beautiful beach to Sandsend.

This is a beautiful site, having read the previous reveiw I dont agree that trees should be planted as it would take away from the beauty of the park.We had a thunder and lightening storm and where buffied by winds but came to no ill. Stormy winds is a cross we have to bear these days. The showers are very clean, with lots of hot water. the dish washer area has to be the best I have seen so far and we have visited a good few sites. The location is ideal for easy walk to Whitby but also ideal for lots of other places to visit. If like us you like hill walking and fishing you have it all here but book early we where very lucky and got a cancelation. We will not make that mistake again when we return next year.

We found this site to be one of the best we have visited, clean, well maintained and friendly. The amenities blocks are excellent, very clean and tidy. The pitches are well set out with ample space between each one, the dog walking area was superb. Our greatest pleasure was the access to the beach, it is a lovely walk along the coast into Whitby and very easy to do, although the initial path down to the beach would be a little rough for pushchairs or those with a wheelchair.
Our only criticism would be that the site is very open, there is no protection from the prevailing winds, which we were unfortunate enough to experience, dismantling the awning at 3.00am was in hindsight quite funny, and I have to say we did it in record time, perhaps planting some trees or large bushes would afford some kind of natural wind break, although it would be a shame to obscure the sea views.
Thank you for providing such a first class site, in such beautiful surroundings, we are very much looking forward to visiting again soon.
