Thorpe Hall Caravan and Camping Site is in the village of Rudston, a couple of miles west of Bridlington in East Yorkshire. We stayed here for one night in July 2013.
Thorpe Hall has a large touring field, a smaller touring field, a tent field, and a late arrivals area. We stayed in the touring field where we had electric. The campsite is in the grounds of an old manor house (presumably Thorpe Hall) and there are lovely old walls all the way around the site.
As far as I can see, there is one toilet/utility block which is in the main field, not far from the shop (which has limited opening hours).
The children’s play area is a small play frame. The games room is pretty good, with a table-tennis table and various arcade machines. We didn’t spend long enough here to test this out.
There is a games field which is basically a large farmer’s field where you can kick a ball about and not bother anybody, although it’s not that level so you can’t be doing anything Olympic standard. It also doubles as the dog exercise area – the site is dog friendly.
Thorpe Hall was very clean and safe for children. There is a small pond near the shop/reception but it’s not ground level so would be difficult to fall in.
There is WiFi but you have to pay for it. We didn’t test this. There is a curfew on noise and there was very little noise once night came.
It’s about a ten minute drive from Bridlington for fish and chips, which is about the nearest place to buy any sort of food. The shop sells some nice homemade cakes and we got some ice-lollies and things. You can also freeze your packs too.
Thorpe Hall’s owners are really helpful and it’s a lovely little site, but there’s not much to do for children, so more of a base for exploring Bridlington and East Yorkshire.
We paid £25 for a night for all six of us including electric.
