Coast and Camplight is located between Whitby and Robin Hoods Bay in the beautiful North York Moors National Park. The site boasts dramatic views over the historic fishing port of Whitby with its abbey perched high on the cliff and the sea beyond. We’re perfectly located for seaside adventures while enjoying the peace and tranquility of the moors.
The site has been our family farm and home for over 50 years, with every field, tree and gatepost telling a tale. We currently have two woodland camps across 24 acres, well spread out and sheltered by ancient woodland, offering complete peace and seclusion from the outside world.
Each of our off-grid woodland camps has a safari tent with substantial deck, an al fresco kitchen and dining area, its own unique shower block and outdoor firepit with seating. Being off-grid doesn’t mean compromising on comfort; each tent sleeps four with quality beds and luxury bedding, hot showers with fluffy towels, and a log burner to cosy up to in the evenings.
Coast and Camplight is all about making what we always wanted from a glamping site; a complete get away from real life without having to sacrifice comfort! The beds are comfy, the showers are hot, there’s a fridge to keep your beer cold, but you can’t see a single trace of the modern world from your rocking chair on the deck. There’s no television or wifi, but that’s how we like it.
The place is really important to us too. Ed grew up here, making dams in the beck, sledging down the steepest field, building dens where your tents are now. His Dad John will tell you endless tales about the calves he’s delivered in these fields if you let him.
Everything here has a little bit of us in it, we’ve built everything from scratch often from things that have been part of the farm from the beginning. Whether it’s the tables that have been repurposed from Ed’s Nan, the belfast sinks that the pigs used to have their breakfast in, or the beautiful things we’ve dressed the tents with that we’ve collected along the way, the site couldn’t be more personal to us.
We hope you love it as much as we do. Ed and Verity x
