Overview

This is a Certificated Site (CS). A small campsite that accepts just five caravans or motorhomes. Some of these CS’s accept tents, space permitting. CSs are often quieter, smaller places to camp, with many offering minimal facilities – ideal for when you want to get away from it all.

This is tranquility, lean on the access gate and watch the world go by, and the steam trains, and the cows by the river and the walks into whitby, no mcdonalds, what more does any body want.

Having booked the site 2 months previously, on arrival there were no spaces available.

This review is for Shawn Rigg Caravan Park

Having booked the site 2 months previously, on arrival there were no spaces available. No contact could be made with the owners despite leaving a voice mail which was not returned. On first appearance the site, with 6 units on, was obviously very cramped with no space for awnings. It also appeared that access to a large commercial static caravan site ran through the middle of the CS site! My first impression of the site was that it was a gravel car park!

If you looking for a small site close to Whitby, then you won’t go wrong.

This review is for Shawn Rigg Caravan Park

If you looking for a small site close to Whitby, then you won’t go wrong. This place gets 5* for location. The River Esk flows past the front gate, easy walks around and only 2 odd miles out of Whitby itself. Unfortunately that were it ends. During the course of a 14 night stop over July / August 2012, seven of those nights we had 6 vans/motor homes on site. In larger sites this normally would not be an issue or noticeable, but this site is very small, the space between the vans is far to close, people could not put up awnings if they wanted to. We had the main electrical box out side our front door. As the owners don’t live next to or on the site they pop in sometime during the day. When we arrived we had no idea were to park, on calling the owner we just got voice mail, so just chose a spot to suit, fortunately the site only had two other caravans on site at the time otherwise it might have been difficult to get on, as we are towing a fifth wheel. New arrivals would question people already onsite stating that they were allocated to their pitch. Making it awkward and embarrassing for all concerned. Fortunately all campers worked together otherwise it could have become a major issue. The position of the site make satellites useless (Astra 28), and we could not get TV reception at all, some others however did but were on the opposite side to us, but that should change in September when the Digital Switch over comes in hopefully. I suppose the true test is, would you return? And I must say no on this occasion. That does sadden us, as we have stayed at various sites in the UK over the last six months of our two year tour, having met numerous nice people and site owners. If all vans put up awnings and had adequate space between them, then the size of this site would only just suit three vans. If that was the case, then I would have no hesitation in returning, because the location is great.

This review is for Shawn Rigg Caravan Park

we stayed here on a mid week break and found the site quiet and fairly secluded. There is a stream to the rear of the well kept and mainly gravelled site which is quite fast flowing, or it was in mid february ! Owners were very pleasant and helpful. Lovely views from the van over the river opposite. Immaculate site< we are going back in the summer ! Well worth a visit.
