"Great to be able to visit this superb example of a touring and camping park ... Arrival here is most pleasant; the long drive, now completely resurfaced, clear signage and secure barrier all give excellent first impressions. This continued on the park itself where again some resurfacing noted, the main reception and shop buidlings are very well maintained and presented and all grassed areas, hedging and planted areas are in superb order. Woodland play areas and camping pods also impressed. Terraced pitches here give superb views over the surrounding moorland ... Amenities blocks are very well presented, all touring sets very clean, superbly maintained and accessible. A high ratio of private, family rooms also noteworthy."

Wonderful Whitby!

Whitby is one of the best-known seaside locations in the UK and Grouse Hill Camping and Glamping is just eight miles from this fabulous town.

The town has connections to Captain Cook, Dracula, the jet industry and lots more besides, as well as being famous for its kippers!

Whitby is divided by the River Esk, one of Yorkshire's greatest rivers. The two sides of the town are divided into East Cliff (on which stands Whitby Abbey) and West Cliff (which includes the famous Whalebone Arch and Captain Cook Monument).

The incredible harbour, which includes two impressive piers, is bustling with fishing boats and pleasure launches, perfect if you want to sample life on the ocean wave.

Whitby is a hub of activity throughout the year, with famous events such as the Whitby Goth Weekend, Whitby Regatta and Whitby Folk Week all attracting the crowds.

With such a long history, the town includes Pannett Park Museum complete with beautiful gardens and the Captain Cook Memorial Museum, in which the famous maritime explorer cut his nautical teeth when he was a young lad.

Whitby is also a great favourite for food fans and those who like a bit of shopping, with a plethora of fabulous places to eat and eclectic shops to browse around.

And we must not forget the golden beaches at Whitby and the colourful beach chalets! Cliff top walks are also a favourite with visitors. 

Many folks have made their fortunes in the town, and there is many a traditional trade still thriving in Whitby's cobbled streets. There are several jet jewellery makers, a kipper house, and a busy fishing fleet that supplies some local eateries with fresh seafood.

There is also Whitby Pavilion which hosts a number of live performances, films and coffee dances throughout the year.

Here at Grouse Hill, we are just a short drive from the main Scarborough to Whitby road, and if you prefer to travel by bus, then the nearest bus stop is just a short walk from Grouse Hill's entrance, and can be found just outside the Flask Inn.
