Another vote for crows nest, we have a caravan there. Great things around it playdale farm park, gorgeous farm shop with fab offers cafe and kids garden, Filey 5 mins away and Scarborough and Bridlington 15 mins, Filey country park is lovely, glen gardens, kids paddling pool, little fairground without being tacky!

Mablethorpe Golden Sands – Haven Holidays

Distance from York: 92.5 miles

Golden Sands is one of our most spacious holiday parks, with plenty of room to explore within the park itself or on the stunning nearby beach which is, as the park name suggests, both golden and very sandy. There’s lots to keep you occupied during your stay, from splashing around in our pool to family friendly fun at our funfair and crazy golf course. Fancy a go at something a bit more adventurous? Jump into a safety harness and have a go on our climbing wall and high ropes course! And if something a little more relaxing appeals to you we have the perfect answer for that too – a few hours sat beside the waters of our two beautiful fishing lakes.

Haven Golden Sands at Mablethorp is fab, we’ve been for the last 3 years and have never had a bad holiday there. There is plenty to do round and about, there is a swimming pool, shop, amusements and eating places on site and also entertainment every evening from 6pm till 9pm for the children then after that they have more adult themed entertainment

Night on a boat

If you fancy something a little different, why not take a look at Airbnb and search York boats.  A night on a boat would certainly be very exciting and a unique thing to do with the children.

Primrose Valley – Filey (Haven Holidays)

Distance from York: 41.7 miles

The first thing you notice about our Primrose Valley Holiday Park is how big it is! Big in size, big in personality and big in things to do. And we can promise you one thing: you’ll never have a dull day here. Have a splash around in our refurbished swimming pool with its flumes and water features. Out of the water, have a go on our climbing wall and see if you can make it all the way to the top. If you’re in the mood for something more relaxing, spend a few hours lazing on the banks of our fishing lake. The kids will love spending time at the funfair, and if a day trip appeals, the picturesque town of Filey is just a short way along the coast. Kick back and take it easy, or pick up the pace and have a full on day – it’s up to you.

But it’s also got so much more. Even on the sunniest of days you may be tempted to stay inside and enjoy our Activity Barn and all of the fun things we have going on inside it. We’ve got plenty of quality entertainment on offer too, with some fantastic full-scale shows performed by our very own Thornwick Bay Theatre Company. If you love the Haven experience and are ready to try something new, you have to come to Thornwick Bay and discover everything it has to offer for yourself.
