The Owner Says

Our Bell Tent is a ‘Lotus Belle’ design with lots of standing room, a light spacious feel, twinkly fairy lights and jute matting on the floor. The tent has a comfortable double bed with scatter cushions and a draped mosquito net, a chair, sideboard, mirror, cool box and provisions for making hot drinks and doing basic outdoor camping cooking (BBQ is provided for outside use). Please note that there are no inside cooking facilities in the tent.

There is an outside seating area perfect for leisurely breakfasts or those balmy nights enjoying an evening meal.

There are a number of beautiful walks that can be accessed directly from site – choose from the cliff-top routes or venture into the neighbouring oak woodland. Runswick Bay, a beautiful beach, is 1 mile from the campsite. The beach is dog friendly and has a good café selling ice cream, as well as buckets, spades and all the usual beach gear. Or head to the picturesque village of Staithes, with a number of cafes and restaurants, as well as a small heritage museum (01947 841454) and a vintage shop and gallery (01947 841096). A little further afield is Grosmont where you'll find the North Yorkshire Moors Steam Railway (01751 472508). Ride to Pickering stopping at the old stations along the way – you may recognise Goathland as Hogsmeade station from the Harry Potter films. Whitby, too, is a short drive away and makes for a perfect day trip. Be sure to climb the 199 steps to visit famous Whitby Abbey (01947 603568).

Food & Drink

R Lyth & Son (01947 840288), the local butcher, can supply you with BBQ packs, pies and breakfast rolls and the Post Office (01947 840242) sells all the basics like bread and milk, both are just a hundred yards from the site entrance. The Runcible Spoon (01947 840700) is a great bistro right next to the campsite, serving coffee, cake and lunch by day and evening meals over the weekend, sometimes accompanied by live music. For a dog-friendly choice, try The Badger Hounds (01947 841774) for hearty evening meals and a fine selection of beer and wine – we recommend that you make a booking as it does get quite busy. The Cod and Lobster (01947 840330) is the place to go for seafood, overlooking the bay in Staithes.
