Beacon Farm, Whitby, North Yorkshire

Camping with us

2024 Bookings: Our diary for next season will be open mid January, follow us on social media for any updates

SEPTEMBER MIDWEEK OFFER! Camp with us for half price from 4th September (Offer excludes Friday and Saturday nights and is only available for non electric pitches)

Here at Beacon farm, we have created a campsite dedicated to families. Allowing people to holiday in a relaxed, countryside environment that won’t break the bank. Based a few miles just outside of Whitby our campsite is an ideal base to explore the Yorkshire coast.

Unlike some other campsites, we don’t like to jam pack tents into our field. This ensures there is plenty of room to pitch your tent and for children to play. We work on the premise that if the children are happy then generally the parents are too!

We like to keep things simple. Our camping pitches aren’t marked out, you get to choose where to pitch. This means you can worry more about what’s going on the barbecue than whether your tent is going to fit! We have a few of our FAQ’s below but if you need any more information then feel free to get in touch.

Camping Season: April – September (Weather depending)

Please note

This is a campsite primarily for respectful families. If you are looking for a campsite to stay up until the early hours and make noise, then this is not the campsite for you. There is to be no noise after 11pm.

Our campsite options


Price includes up to 4 people

These pitches are situated in our main open field camping area. Pitches aren’t marked out and you get to choose where to pitch, giving you ultimate freedom over your camping trip

Price includes up to 4 people and access to 16Amp electric

Situated towards the top of the main camping field, our electric pitches aren’t specifically marked out but you will be given a general area to stick to with your tent. 

Unfortunately due the increase in electric prices we are having to install a solar panel system to power the farm, this will be situated in the caravan pitch area. This means we will not be taking caravans and motorhomes for the 2023 season. We hope to relocate the caravan pitches in the future. We are extremely sorry for any in convenience

Additional people

If the number of people in your unit exceeds the four people included in the base price, you will need to pay £5 for each additional person per night.


As long as your furry friends are well behaved and as an owner you keep them on a lead whilst on site and pick up any mess after them we feel no need to charge extra for dogs.


If you would like the full camping experience of toasting marshmallows over a fire but don’t want the hassle of bringing along your own fire pit then we also hire firepits out. Each night of fire pit hire includes a bag of logs, kindling and some firelighters. Fire pits can be arranged whilst on site.

Prices are as follows:
  • 1 night – £10
  • 2 nights – £17
  • 3 nights – £24
  • 4 or more nights – £7 per night
