10 of the Best Family Campsites to try near Whitby

I love nothing more than a camping trip in the summer. It's an inexpensive way to get some proper r&r with the family, take a digital detox and get some fresh air into your lungs! Hot on the heels of my post featuring 10 places to camp in the North East and North Yorkshire and A Guide to Camping by the Beach in Northumberland, I decided to focus this post on campsites in and around Whitby in North Yorkshire.


Whitby is a 1.5 - 2 hour drive from our home in Northumberland and the perfect distance for a weekend short break I think. There's lots to do in the area from climbing the 199 steps to the abbey to the Dracula experience, eating award-winning fish and chips, plenty of coastal walks, fishing, boat trips or you can simply play on the beach. You can read about our last trip to Whitby here. 


Beacon Farm Ice Cream

Beacon Farm is an Ice Cream Shop and Tea Room just 4 miles from Whitby. This family-run business accepts tents for just £15 per night (up to 4 people - additional people are £2 each). There's the option to include electric hook-up and the site is dog-friendly too - in fact your dog can stay for free! Facilities include a children's play park, an indoor bouncy castle, ice cream parlour on-site, toilet and shower block, pot washing area and mobile phone charging.
