A cliff-top, Yorkshire paradise for bird lovers

Opened on the Yorkshire coast back in 2008, this is a site for lovers of open fields and big skies. Three-quarters of a mile up a rough track, Wold farmhouse stands in wondrous isolation on the great chalk promontory that is Flamborough Head. There are several individual camping fields, each enjoying uninterrupted views over the sheep-filled fields to both Flamborough lighthouses (new one on the left, old one on the right) with a sliver of sea to top it off. There's a new toilet, shower and pot washing facilities.

This site is an Eldorado for walkers, birdwatchers and beach lovers. Take the campsite’s private footpath to the cliffs, just a 5 minute walk away, and you can either birdwatch (puffins, gannets, skuas and countless others adorn the skies) or do the circular nine-mile walk of the entire headland, taking in no fewer than five spectacular Yorkshire coast beaches and bays along the way. Meanwhile, dipsomaniacs and those who just enjoy the odd tipple will be encouraged to learn that despite its apparently remote location, there are no fewer than nine drinking establishments within a mile and a half of the site.

There are so many things to do in this corner of Yorkshire, with Bridlington, Filey and Scarborough only a short drive away, that the owners present campers with a welcome pack. It includes info on Sewerby Hall, Zoo and Gardens (3 miles; 01262 673769) which in 2009 successfully defended its title as Britain’s Best Picnic Spot. Take along a sandwich and a flask and find out what all the fuss is about.



Toilet and shower block. Drinking water and washing-up facilities. Exclusive to guests is a scenic path for gaining access to the cliffs. Quiet picnic area.

Suitable For

Tents, campervans, caravans – yes.


Sewerby Hall, Zoo & Gardens (01262 673769) is a lovely spot, as is the RSPB reserve at Bempton Cliffs. You should also consider taking the ‘Puffin cruise’, which leaves from North Pier in Bridlington 5 miles away, on which you can spot puffins from late May to mid July and Skuas in September; advance booking advised (01262 850959). Flamborough Head Lighthouse, 3 miles from the site, was built in 1806 and is still very flashy today (01262 673769). Try also the fairytale-like nature trails at Danes Dyke and South landing.

Food & Drink

There’s a pub for every taste in Flamborough and a surprising number of them given its seemingly remote location, but the one with a reputation for decent food is the Seabirds, Tower Street (01262 850242).


April – November.
