St Helens In The Park, North Yorkshire

St Helens Caravan Park enjoys a great location between the Yorkshire Moors and the coast.

It is an established caravan park on the edge of the North York Moors National Park and is only six miles from Scarborough. Set in the Wykeham Estate, the park offers a relaxed atmosphere surrounded by a wealth of traditional and historic holiday attractions.

Accessed directly from the main A170 road, a private road winds around to the reception area and there is a late night arrivals park with electrical hook-ups. This is a well-maintained large 36-acre site, divided into terraces with tree screening creating smaller and more intimate areas. Tarmac roads lead around this well landscaped park and all but twenty of the pitches have electric hook-ups which are on level grass and generous in size.

Seasonal pitches are available and there are low season discounts, together with a large winter storage compound. There are an additional two fields devoted to tent campers. For those wanting peace and quiet there is an adults zone where no tricycles and whistles are allowed.

First-class facilities include heated amenity blocks with bathrooms, baby care units, spacious showers and some individual privacy cubicles and hair care units. A launderette, well-stocked licensed shop and takeaway, offering breakfasts and daily essentials, free Wi-Fi and well-stocked tourist information centre complete the list of facilities on offer. The reception area has friendly staff and stocks certain caravan requirements, as well as Calor gas.

For rainy days there is an indoor games room, children also have a large outdoor play area with safe equipment, plus full size playing field for ball games. Bike hire is available and there is a cycle route through the surrounding estate. Coarse and trout fishing is available nearby at Wykeham Lakes as well as water sports.

Limited facilities are available during winter, well-behaved dogs are welcome and have a three-acre exercise field. A private woodland walk leads to Wykeham village and a beautifully restored 18th century coaching inn, offering good food and traditional ales should the chef need a night off!

The safe, sandy beaches of Scarborough are a short drive away. Historic York, Flamingo Land Zoo & Fun Park and the Sea Life Centre are all close by and St Helens makes an ideal base to explore the outstanding natural beauty of the area.
