Just outside the village of Rudston, in the grounds of Thorpe Hall, this pleasant small touring park is six miles from the sea at Bridlington. Enthusiastically managed by Jayne Chatterton, it is set on flat grass, largely enclosed by the old kitchen garden wall. The 78 large pitches have 16A electrical hook-ups and TV connections. A separate field accommodates 14 tents. There are no caravan holiday homes or seasonal pitches. Tourist information leaflets on a range of local walks are provided and Sir Ian MacDonald takes visitors on walks around the estate.
The shops, bars and restaurants of Bridlington are just five miles away, as is its historic Old Town. Other attractions include the harbour with its heritage museum, the Spa Theatre and Ballroom, Sewerby Hall and Gardens and Leisure World. Nearby are Flamborough Head with its lighthouse and Bempton Cliffs (RSPB). Days out could include a drive down the coast to Spurn Point or out into the Yorkshire Wolds. Visits to Scarborough, to Beverley or York, each with its Minster and racecourse, or even to Pickering and the North York Moors Railway.
