Further afield, the fascinating remains of Wharram Percy Medieval Village are well worth a visit, and if you're heading up the coast, make a trip to Scarborough Castle. Explore the exhibition, take in the views of the town and the coast, and treat yourself in the tearoom.

Thank you for your comments regarding your recent stay with us at Skipsea Sands. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. Unfortunately during busy times we do operate a banding system for the pool to ensure every guest gets a an hour in the pool. Security do regular patrols of the full park however I will pass your feedback on to our Security Manager and make sure there are more patrols done on the Touring area.
Facilities: Nearby Skipsea has a pub, post office and service station.
The borough of Skipsea Castle was first recorded between 1160 and 1175 and may have been founded by William le Gros, Count of Aumale, who died in 1179.
Superior 12ft-wide caravan with one double and two twin. Shower. Heating throughout. No pets.
An impressive Norman motte and bailey castle, dating from before 1086 and among the first raised in Yorkshire, with the earthworks of an attendant fortified 'borough'.
Other strange tales have grown up around the area, such as the footprints in fields around the castle where two brothers fought a dual. Strangely, nothing grew in the footprints afterwards. This strange and misty land seems to have had more than its share of strange happenings!
The size of the touring pitches. The dog walks. Liked the spacious area for children to play for my grandsons
Skip to see – and stay at – this holiday park on the sandy East Yorkshire coast: we ex-speck you’ll love it.

The well preserved Norman undercroft of Burton Agnes Manor House is an eight mile drive from Skipsea.
Evenings are properly covered with a range of glitzy entertainment from live music to family shows.
Why not getaway with the family for a Touring break! From only £7.00 per pitch per night.
Not quite as old but still impressive in our (history) book is Fort Paull, the only Napoleonic fortress still in Yorkshire and now with a museum and the last surviving Blackburn Beverley aircraft in the world. Bring a camera: you’ll want to snap the views from the fort over the Humber estuary.

If it’s raining, take the kids to Terror Tower: its two buildings and three floors’ worthy of grisly special effects should silence even the most horrifying sprog.
Access: To access the site, visitors walk through a rough field - not suitable for pushchair or wheelchair users.
Our tent pitch was quite rubbly so we put our car over that bit so the kids didn't fall in it. There is no direct access to the beach, it wasn't really a problem for us as we were only staying one day and we made use of park facilities but if people are staying longer this is obviously negative for the usually great park.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can now make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children on one pitch.
Skipsea may have got its name from the Viking word for Ship Lake. It is likely that the original village was on a lake which at that time lay inland from the sea. Archaeologists have discovered platforms in the area which may have been the foundations of Stone and Bronze Age huts.
By the end of the 11th century, both Skipsea Castle and a church had been built, which encouraged the growth of a small town. In the following 13th and 14th centuries, local markets and fairs were granted "variously for Skipsea town, Skipsea manor, and Skipsea Brough manor, presumably all the same and possibly by then meaning Skipsea village".
Book a break away and enjoy the early Autumn sunshine. We've got some great Autumn holiday deals from just £101.00
Location is good, central to local beaches. Good entertainment, friendly staff
Limited access to the swimming pool, for the kids, due to commercial sessions.Not enough life guards on duty so numbers in the pool restricted, which gave rise to long waiting times (1hr) to get into the pool. During the night some inconsiderate people made a lot of noise, some times till 3am in the morning, no one came round on a night checking and sorting these situations out.Lack of access to the beach, due to costal erosion.
Is the pool reasonable sized? Are there easily bookable water activities available? Is the Gold caravan decent standard? Thanks in advance:-)
Thank you for your comments regarding your recent stay at Skipsea Sands. Unfortunately the group you mentioned booked online so it was out of our control however we did have a member of staff pitch next to them on the second night and we also asked Security to carry out regular patrols of the Touring site to make sure they didn’t disrupt guests any further. We look forward to seeing you here at Skipsea Sands again in the future and your comments have been passed on to the relevant departments.
