Campervan trip in the North York Moors
Collecting the VW EasiCampervan from our Blackburn Easicampers branch and travel North East to the North York Moors.
The North York Moors is a national park in North Yorkshire, England. The moors is the smallest of the three national parks however they are one of the largest expanses of heather moorland in the United Kingdom. It covers an area of 554 sq miles. The moors cover around a third of the park and run to the coast between Staithes and Scarborough. From July to early September the heather bursts into flower turning the moors a vivid purple. The North York Moors became a National Park in 1952.
The North York Moors National Park encompasses two main types of landscape, whose differences are clearly visible. There are predominantly green areas of pasture land and the purple and brown heather moorland. The two kinds of scenery are the result of differences in the underlying geology and each supports different wildlife communities.
The cliffs and sandy bays of the coast offer an assortment of seashore habitats. The spectacular scenery where the Cleveland Hills meet the sea has been designated as a Heritage Coast.
Stay in your Campervan at the Scarborough campsite which lies just north of the Victorian seaside resort of the same name and is perfectly located for exploring the North Yorkshire Heritage Coast and the North York Moors National Park.
Things to do from the campsite
Enjoy a 15 minute cliff top walk to the beach from the campsite. The site is ten minutes’ walk from the 109 mile Cleveland Way National Trail which hugs the North Yorkshire coast. A traffic-free cycle path passes close to the site on the way to Whitby.
West of Scarborough campsite North Riding Forest Park (or Dalby Forest as it is also known) has many waymarked trails for walkers and mountain biking and family cycling trails. You can go orienteering here too and there are adventure play areas for children. Go Ape offer tree top adventure with ropes and zip slides or, if you prefer to keep your feet on the ground, enjoy the forest on a Segway.
Places to visit
Head north to Staintondale and the Shire Horse Centre. Meet the equine residents and enjoy farm walks. Learn about the North Yorkshire coast at the Ravenscar Coastal Centre, a National Trust Heritage site, with activities and exhibitions. From here you can enjoy a three-mile beach walk to the pretty fishing village of Robin Hood’s Bay. Ten miles from Ravenscar is the pretty harbour town of Whitby where Captain Cook famously set sail in the Endeavour. Visit the Captain Cook Memorial Museum, Lifeboat Museum and Whitby Abbey and don’t forget to sample the town’s famous fish and chips! From Whitby catch the train to Grosmont, the terminus for the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. This 18-mile heritage line runs from here across the National Park to Pickering. Jump off at Goathland (or Aidensfield for TV’s Heartbeat fans).
