Hooks House Farm is a family run Campsite that was the best find in Whitby, North Yorkshire based on it's location, friendliness of staff and how peaceful the area is.

The site is situated very close to Robin Hoods Bay within the beautiful North Yorkshire Moors which provides a basic low cost vacation.

The Camping Park

Hooks House is a basic campsite without the bar, on site shop and everything else large caravan and camping sites offer. However, this is what many campers seek for a more real camping experience without distractions.

While the site has basic facilities everything including shops, pubs, restaurants, trails, and the beach is within walking distance.

Hooks House farm charges per person rather than pitch which was an advantage for me solo camping and would be for couples, although they can charge a minimum of 2 adults within busy periods.

Sitting down with the family having a BBQ with a beer in hand watching the sunset at Robin Hoods Bay is something not to be missed.

After entering the campsite reception is on the left hand side.

Looking up from the bottom end of the campsite. Plenty of pitching space for a small site.

The shower and toilet cabins are well maintained and very clean. Can you spot Tess my dog?

A well equipped kitchen area that has sinks for washing up, a microwave, hot water kettle, and fridge freezer.

Local Area

Fylingthorpe Village and Robin Hoods bay are about a 10 minutes walk down hill from the site to visit. For Robins Hood turn left or turn right to visit Fylingthorpe.

Days out to the Steam Railway, Staintondale Shire horse centre, coastal walks or trails, the river Esk and Whitby town are among popular things to do and visit locally.

The main site office and the kitchen area has many brochures for attractions and activities available locally if your looking for a day away from camp and the staff are helpful if advice is needed.

What's The Verdict?

From Filey to Whitby this was the best site I had visited. The atmosphere here is all about the outdoors and the location provides the perfect setting for taking days out or just relaxing at camp for the day admiring the landscape.

If you don't do countryside very well and need discos with burger or pizza at hand this place may not be for you.

Smart Tip: Be aware of the sheep when walking through the field and try to respect their home. One head butted my dog Tess in the bum when she looked at it's lamb to warn her off.

I'm hoping I get the chance to visit in the future again!
