Places to visit...
Scarborough – the Queen of the Yorkshire coast, lies just 45 minutes from historic York situated between Whitby to the North and Bridlington to the South. The main focus to holiday makers is the golden stretch of beach which visitors flock to during the summer months. Picturesque Scarborough Castle dominates the coastal skyline and makes for an interesting day out. The area though supports many attractions beside the seaside, some of which we have highlighted below.More on Scarborough
Explore the narrow streets and alleyways that wind through this picturesque coastal town towards the busy quayside. The picture postcard harbour is overlooked by the ruins of the ancient St Hilda’s Abbey high on Whitby’s East Cliff. Why not trek the 199 steps from the old town of Whitby that lead up to Parish Church of St Mary, the scene of which was inspiration for Bram Stoker’s famous book, Dracula.
Just a short distance from Scarborough is the traditional English seaside resort of Filey. A holiday hotspot since the Victorian era, Filey offers golden sands and a fishing harbour village with quaint shops and cafes. Take in the beautiful views of Filey Bay or enjoy a coastal walk along the cliff top to Bempton Cliffs or Flamborough Head.
If your looking for fun seaside activities for the kids then look no further than a day out to Bridlington. The beachside promenade is packed with kids rides and amusements or you can show off your sand castle making skills on either of Bridlington’s two award winning beaches. The harbour town bustles in the summer months.
Robin Hood’s Bay
Venture the path’s of pirates and smugglers! Robin Hood’s Bay is a maze of tiny streets and passageways surrounding an ancient fishing harbour. Legend has it that Robin Hood raided French Pirates pillaging the North Yorkshire coast and returned the loot back to the local villagers and so the name was born. Robin Hood’s Bay is a picturesque town with unique quirky appeal and well worth a visit.
For fans of the TV series Heartbeat, Goathland is an essential visit. Here you can view the now infamous shops and green, the tea rooms and Scripps Funeral Service and Petrol Station all of which were familiar sights on the series. Goathland also provides a railway station with connection to the steam operated North Yorkshire Moors Railway.
The magnificent Castle Howard labelled as one the ‘Top 10 Greatest Mansions in the World’ offers a spectacular step back in time. The splendid house and estate offers something for the whole family. Browse the 18th Century stately home, explore the extensive gardens or visit the museums and temporary exhibitions. During the summer months look out for special open air events and music concerts featuring many famous acts.
There is so much to see and do in the local area, including the Scarborough Fair Collection and Vintage Transport Museum which is located on the Flower of May Holiday Park!

Yes, our premium WiFi service is included when you are in your holiday home. You have your own connection for your holiday home and you can connect as many devices as you like.
Static Caravan Hire - We are coming in a group, can we have caravans together?
We don't allocate caravans until very close to your arrival. If you have a particular request please let us know in advance and we will do our best to get you as close together as possible. We have 20 caravans in total, there is a block of 10 two bedroom caravans and a block 10 three bedroom caravans which may restrict the chances if you have booked different berth from the other group.
Static Caravan Hire - is there a minimum number of nights? Do I have to come on certain days?
The minimum number of nights for a static caravan booking is 3 nights. Our breaks are 3 nights (Friday to Monday), 4 nights (Monday to Friday) or 7 nights (Saturday to Saturday). We can also do 14 night bookings from a Saturday to Saturday too.
Touring - What's included in the price?
Our prices are for up to four people and one car. You may need to pay for extras such as an awning, if you are bringing a dog (1 max), extra people or extra cars. Plus, you will need to pay for your electric and for facilities in the leisure centre.
Touring - Is electric included?
Electric hook-ups are provided on all our touring pitches. You will need to pay for your electric cards to top up the meter as the electric isn't included in the price. You can buy these from reception in £1, £5 or £10 denominations. We usually recommend roughly £3 per night, however this is an estimate and you may use more or less than this amount.
Touring - Is there a minimum number of nights?
For advance touring bookings, it's a minimum of 2 nights throughout the low and mid season, and 3 nights during the high season (school and bank holidays). If you want to come along for just one night, you would need to turn up and book in over the reception desk. We'd advise calling before you set off to get a picture of the availability.
Touring / Camping - Can we be pitched together or request a particular pitch?
We don't allocate pitches to you in advance, you are pitched on your arrival at the park. If you would like to be pitched together we will try our best where possible. Once you've checked-in, the warden will take you to a pitch, ask the warden if you have a special request.
Camping - My tent is bigger than 6m x 6m can I still come?
You'd need to call us for this query with the dimensions of your tent to hand (the berth of the tent isn't much help because all tents vary in size). At low season times we can sometimes accommodate larger tents, however in peak season it is unlikely to be able to be accommodated.
Camping - Is electric included?
Electric hook-ups are available on our camping pitches as well as non-electric pitches. You will need to put some credit on our electric cards to top up the meter as the electric isn't included in the price. You can top up the plastic card (issued at check-in) at reception with any amount you wish from £1 upwards and refund any remaining money to the card which we will refund in full pounds at check-out. We usually recommend £3 per night, however this is an estimate and you may use more or less than this amount.
Pods - Can we have pods together?
We don't allocate pods until very close to your arrival. If you have a particular request please let us know in advance and we will do our best to get you as close together as possible. We have 10 pods in total, in a horseshoe shape with our three 5-berth units grouped together.
Pods - What is included in the pod?
We always advise guests to treat a pod holiday like a camping holiday. There are bunk beds in the pods with a sofa-turned-bed for additional sleeping.
