This review is for Shawn Rigg Caravan Park

Stayed for 9 nights during folk week. This is a lovely little site and handy for motorhomers as there is a half hourly bus into Whitby during the day or use the train (both within half a mile) and near a pub with excellent beer. The walk along the track is about twenty minutes into Whitby. The site is adequately sized for 5 vans or motorhomes with two on one side of a central roadway and three on the other. Electrics are full 16 amp. Pitches are not marked but common sense is used. Access is good. Surface is all stoned (but not the little ones that tread in!). There isn't much sun until midday at least due to the trees. The central roadway gives access to some statics - up a slope behind trees and can't be seen and the people we met from them were very friendly. There are no locked barriers but the locality is very quiet and we were not concerned about security. The owner is very helpful and a phone call away. Note earlier comments about the stream at the side - steep drop, unfenced and tidal.

Great site for a peaceful break myself wife & granddaughter had a relaxing break here,Jeanie (owner) made sure we knew the location of the local amenities,the station is a short walk and get the train to Whitby (cheaper than taking the car). no problem setting up (with plenty room for awning).If you want a peaceful break and don't mind using your own toilet & shower you won't be disappointed.

This review is for Shawn Rigg Caravan Park

We stayed for 3 nights in mid February and totally enjoyed using the site to tour Whitby and North York Moors. The site is gravelled and well drained. A 16 amp supply, very useful and more than enough space for 5 units. The facilities are basic, water, Chem waste point and fresh water. that's all we needed. Would we return, definitely !

This review is for Shawn Rigg Caravan Park

Didn't meet the owner, as we were out quite a lot of the time but she sounded cheery and helpful on the phone. Left money in post box by gate. Pitched adjacent to road and were not disturbed by traffic, Had great views of wildlife on river from overcab bed on waking up. Entrance slightly awkward first time, but ok when you are used to it. The handle is behind the RH gate post. Our hose was not long enough to fill tank with water from recommended tap. Whitby now has some disc parking [ 2 hours] and also a Park and Ride. Missed the steam trains passing through village, only saw diesels!
