If you're looking for somewhere to pitch to ensure you have a tranquil and relaxing holiday in Yorkshire, try Lebberston Touring Park.
Close to the North Yorkshire coast and only about a 20-minute drive from the famous seaside town of Scarborough, Lebberston Touring Park welcomes touring caravans, motorhomes and trailer tents. A small, family-run campsite, it's great for a peaceful getaway – but it doesn't permit visitors staying in tents.
We can vouch for this campsite as it features in the Top 100 Sites Guide 2014 put together by this website, Caravan Sitefinder, in association with Practical Caravan and Practical Motorhome magazines. This definitive, go-to guide lists the UK's best campsites, so this is surely one of the best campsites in Yorkshire. Visitors commended it for its security, the clean facilities, the spacious pitches and for the fact that it is a well-kept campsite.
In addition, this campsite has a four-pennant AA rating and a gold David Bellamy Award for Conservation.
Lebberston Touring Park has 120 pitches, all of which have electric hook-ups and half of which are hardstanding. There are two modern, heated washblocks, each with toilets and wash basins, showers, individual cubicles, shaver points and hairdryers. The family bathroom has baby changing facilities, while the disabled shower room has a low level sink, a double width shower and grab rails.
This is a dog friendly campsite and boasts a dedicated dog exercise area. There are sinks where you can do your washing up, recycling points, Wi-Fi is available, the campsite has a licensed shop and a tourist information point, plus there is a nearby bus stop, if you fancy exploring the local area while leaving your car or motorhome on site. Secure, year-round caravan storage is also offered. Indeed, this campsite has been recognised by the Caravan Storage Site Owners Association and has been granted a Gold Award.
This campsite is handily located for both the North Yorkshire Heritage Coast and the lovely Yorkshire Wolds. The town of Filey is only a short drive away (you can get there in less than 10 minutes). You can also easily make a trip to Whitby (about an hour by car to the north), historic York (about an hour by car to the south west) or Bridlington (just a 20-minute drive down the coast).
If you want an active adventure on your motorhome or caravan holidays in Yorkshire, head to Go Ape! in Dalby Forest. There are also bike trails criss-crossing the forest, play areas and the Sky Rainforest Rescue Discovery Trail, a two-mile trail.
Flamborough Headland Heritage Coast is easily accessed from Lebberston Touring Park, too, with stunning chalk cliffs, and rare plants and wildlife. The North York Moors National Park is on your doorstep, with breathtaking vistas, wonderful walking and cycling opportunities, as well as horse riding, bird watching and much more.
Or how about the Howardian Hills Area of Natural Beauty? Covering 79 square miles of North Yorkshire countryside, set between the North York Moors National Park, the Yorkshire Wolds and the Vale of York, it has been an AONB since 1987 and there is much to explore, from woodlands and fields, to historic villages and stately homes.
So when you're next planning your motorhome and caravan holidays in North Yorkshire, why not consider staying at Lebberston Touring Park and get the most from your getaway.
The seaside town on Filey is only minutes away and offers all that is best of the traditional seasise holiday, from golden sands to award winning gardens and donkey rides to crazy golf.
Our location on the heritage coast is also convenient for the bustling seaside town or Scarborough, with its beaches, cliff tops and busy shopping centre only yards apart and all reached by the famous Victorian cliff lifts. Scarborough has some of the countries finest parks and gardens, the elegant Esplanade and magnificent medieval castle.
Other coastal villages and towns within easy reach are those of Staithes, Runswick and Robin Hoods Bays, Bridlington, Hornsea and Whitby.
Inland the North Yorkshire Moors can be enjoyed on foot, by car or by travelling on the North Yorkshire Moors railway between Pickering and Whitby. Dalby Forest has playgrounds for all ages including the tree top 'Go Ape' experience. The stunning stately homes of Burton Agnes, Sledmere Sewerby Hall and of course the iconic Castle Howard, the setting for Brideshead Revisited are all within easy reach. York is less than 40 miles away and well worth a visit to explore the Roman City, The Shambles and the National Railway Museum.

we spent 8 days and here july 19-27 and considering it was a late booking we really fell on our feet here - we have a 3 year old grandson and the large green play area gives you peace of mind when watching out for them. The park is well laid out, thoroughly clean and the toilets and wash facilities are some of the best i have seen. The park is well off road and the security is really good - giving you a sense that someone is watching out for you without it ever being invasive. If there is one slight reservation it is that a little toddlers play area would have been welcome (if only to stop them flooding accompanying tourers watching videos etc)
Well done Lebberston - certainly one of the best and I will certainly return

My family and I have just been here for a weekend. The site is clean and tidy as are the showers(these are cleaned every day). The site is away from the main road and is very quiet. There is a large grass playing field in the middle of the site and my kids lived there for 2 days! There is a large contingence of seasonal owners on here but they do make you feel welcome. The hard stand pitches are the type where the van is on hard stand and the awning goes on the grass - can be messy this time of year and my ground sheet is now in need of a good clean!!!

This isn't an all action site but it is quiet, tidy, well run, close to Filet and Scarborough and VERY clean. The toilet blocks are the nicest I've used in a long time. We have no kids but it would be ideal for those that have some that are able to happily play together as the lovely green grass in the middle of the touring site is very safe, clean and easy to watch.
Well done to the owners.
