I have spent at least two separate weeks a year at Withernsea Sands for the last four years and will be back for a fortnight this year. I always stay in Bronze caravan accommodation as I have dogs. There is a dog walk on the periphery of the park which is useful for late night walking. The dogs-allowed beach is probably one of the best in the country and goes on for miles, one of the main reasons I have returned each year. The park is extremely clean, the staff extremely helpful and I... (read more)

We were supposed to stay two nights but after staying up most of the night we decided to go home. We visited town before we left, nothing to see although heard the light house is good. I believe its a good resort for small children and the entertainment for them was very good. The restaurant is expensive and the food is poor. We waited over an hour for breakfast. I had egg and beans on toast, it was really greasy and unpleasant. (read more)

Just had a great midweek break camping at Withernsea Sands. We had an electric pitch (BlueBell 4) which was good. Security was helpful as at one point someone else pitched their tent about 1 FOOT from ours and they were told to move! The entertainment was good (we have kids 4 and 7) and the entertainment staff should be congratulated on their enthusiasm. The swimming pool was small but good and clean. The park shop well stocked with essentials you may need. To Improve: The BlueBell toilets... (read more)

I must say that I couldn't really rate the quality of food on site as we didn't eat in the restaurant while we were staying at Withernsea Parks Resort.
Before going I read a lot of the reviews on this site and others and was a little bit concerned about what I would find. What I found was the opposite of the negative reviews.
The park is clean and well looked after with a 2 play areas for the children - one of which is enclosed so you can relax while you watch the little ones run around.... (read more)

PARK RESORTS Withernsea Sands. Would be better off missing out the "Sands" bit as it certainly wasn't there. It was a five minute walk (over a derelict caravan park which was like something out of a horror film) to cliff tops with stones for a beach, not a grain of sand in sight.
The caravan it's self was clean (we payed extra for a gold though).
Its a small site therefor has a small staff ratio we found them all happy to help. Entertainment is fine if you have kids probably up to the... (read more)

Withernsea Sands - Park Resorts
Two of my friends, a partner and our two young girls went here for a couple of nights camping here. The park it's self is pretty much what you'd expect from any bog standard camp site.
The washing facilities and toilets were in a portacabin however but were at the very least well maintained.

Withernsea sands (Park resorts) is by far the worst holiday park we have ever stayed at.
