Reighton sands, Would defiantly go again, we arrived at the park and it was in a nice quiet and friendly environment, The staff were very friendly on arrival and throughout our stay, The on site shop was reasonably priced and the bar and mash and barrel were too. There was a lovely private gold sandy beach with a steep slope as access but couldn't be helped and the good point was that there was a tractor ride running 10am until 4pm wich was free and was really helpful. The site was really... (read more)

Accommodation was fine but basic as you would expect. Reasonably clean however the shower has seen better days and didn't look very clean at all. We had to air out the caravan as it smelt very musty but I think it hadnt been used for a few weeks. I would go again as we did ejoy ourselves and our friends had a good time too (read more)

We were a party of 4 adults staying for a 3 night break as part of the Sun newspaper offers. Having used this offer previously, we know that it costs more than £9.50. As my parents are elderly, we upgraded to a "luxury plus" (advertised as superior by Haven), paid for electricity, entertainment passes, bed linen etc. 24 hours before check-in we were telephoned by the site to say that it was very cold but that if we paid an extra £40 (on top of the £130 already paid) we could be upgraded to...

Myself and my 6year old daughter and two other familys have just come back from a camping trip to Reighton Sands, the site is described as windy but in our case this was an understatement.

I dont think you can go wrong for that!!! We had some great days on the beach which is just stunning. There was a lot of litter and unfortunately some broken bottles etc. The pool was pretty small and limited changing and pool side showers.

Well I that was the worse places I have been. This was our first camping trip and I wouldn't go back to Reighton Sands even if it was free. The pitches were steep, poorly managed, dirty and very windy.
The 'entertainment' complex itself is very poor, and don't have much for the kids apart from arcades. The play park was poorly maintained, paints on the play area are fading and you can tell that they haven't been seen to for at least 10 years. The pool was absolutely disgusting, the kids...

This was our first hol in the UK and will be our last as we ended up spending more that if we had gone abroad!
The entertainment was all geared for children (which is good if you have them!). There was four adults and we were charged £92 for 4 funworks passes just to use the bar and then found out that there was a gate that was left open in the garden to allow people in without paying!!
We found very little entertainment for adults. (read more)

Well, the field which was allocated for tent pitches was in the worse possible place, at the very top of the hill, just in line for the extremely strong winds what blast the coast, the edge of this is suffering coastal erosion but yet has absolutely no fencing or warning that you are close to the edge, (in case of coming home while its dark).

Just returned home from the Haven Holiday from hell at Reighton Sands, Filey.
Discovered our caravan pitch was the local short cut to the 'dog toilet', hence people passed between our caravan and the car all day and all night. We had no privacy whatsoever.

The wardens at Reighton Sands Haven Holiday park were fabulous when we needed help.
Sadly, we were camping on a hill and it was very, very windy. One night, the wind was so bad on the hill, it was too dangerous to stay in our tents, and along with loads of other campers, we spent the night in the shower room. The next morning it was devastating to see most of the tents had blown away or collapsed.
