Crows Nest

Filey, North Yorkshire, England
1 acre hosted by Nick P.
This tents-only cliff-top site adjacent to Crows Nest's main caravan park boasts some of North Yorkshire's most breathtaking sea views.

Crow’s Nest is a tale of two campsites. The first is a large holiday park with a bar, café, fish-and-chip shop, indoor swimming pool, and row upon row of static caravans. Not exactly Hipcamp. But venture a little further, and in sharp contrast you’ll find a large tents-only field with panoramic views over the sea and across the Yorkshire Wolds and Vale of Pickering. A children’s playground forms a handy boundary between the two very different areas.

The tent field climbs up and then slopes gently down towards the cliff-top. There’s room for around 200 tents (and the odd campervan) on a pitch-where-you-like basis. As you head up the hill, you’ll spy some secluded areas surrounded by hedges for small groups of tents, and the closer you get to the sea, the quieter and more peaceful the site becomes. Large family groups head for the serviced pitches near the playground, while a mixture of couples, groups, and families are spread across the rest of the site. You can take the path down the cliffs to the shingle beach at Gristhorpe Bay and, if you’re lucky, you might spot members of the local seal colony that live on and around the rocks here.

From the host
This cliff-top campsite boasts some of North Yorkshire's most breathtaking sea views. Ablutions blocks are on the main site; but there is a covered washing-up station on the camping field. A well-stocked shop joins the other facilities on the main holiday-park site, where you can refreeze cold packs and stock up on the basics. Please be advised x1 tent pitch booked only includes 1 tent. Bookings are accepted for families and couples only. Crows Nest does not accept same or majority gender parties.
Nearby attractions

The North Yorkshire Coast boasts a multitude of great days out. The Cleveland Way runs along the cliff-top in front of the site and takes you into Filey (around 21/2 miles) in one direction, and Scarborough (5 miles) in the other.
