Wold Farm Campsite
Bempton Lane Flamborough Bridlington, East Yorkshire YO15 1AT
Opened on the Yorkshire coast back in 2008, this is a site for lovers of open fields and big skies. Three-quarters of a mile up a rough track, Wold farmhouse stands in wondrous isolation on the great chalk promontory that is Flamborough Head. There are several individual camping fields, each enjoying uninterrupted views over the sheep-filled fields to both Flamborough lighthouses (new one on the left, old one on the right) with a sliver of sea to top it off. There's a new toilet, shower and pot washing facilities.
This site is an Eldorado for walkers, birdwatchers and beach lovers. Take the campsite’s private footpath to the cliffs, just a 5 minute walk away, and you can either birdwatch (puffins, gannets, skuas and countless others adorn the skies) or do the circular nine-mile walk of the entire headland, taking in no fewer than five spectacular Yorkshire coast beaches and bays along the way. Meanwhile, dipsomaniacs and those who just enjoy the odd tipple will be encouraged to learn that despite its apparently remote location, there are no fewer than nine drinking establishments within a mile and a half of the site.
There are so many things to do in this corner of Yorkshire, with Bridlington, Filey and Scarborough only a short drive away, that the owners present campers with a welcome pack. It includes info on Sewerby Hall, Zoo and Gardens (3 miles; 01262 673769) which in 2009 successfully defended its title as Britain’s Best Picnic Spot. Take along a sandwich and a flask and find out what all the fuss is about.

Hidden gem - stunning location
Couple- Stayed early May in a tent. The site is split up over a couple of fields. There were a mix of tents, caravans and camper vans on site, with plenty of room. We were able to choose where we pitched. The location and surroundings are wonderful, we felt so relaxed and views are magnificent! Its a working farm with sheep in the surrounding fields. It took about 15/20 minutes to walk to one of the pub (The Seabirds does good burgers, a bit pricey, worth it though) . One of the reasons for our visit was to see the Puffins, so the location was great for that. They are just up the path from the site. Owners are knowledgeable about the local area and more than happy to help. The facilities block looks quite new and was always clean. Ideal for sole travellers/families/couples. Will definitely be back!
Lovely area and owners
We stayed here for four nights in August 2013 and booked it based on it's inclusion in the Tiny Campsites book. The only downside to the stay was that the campsite isn't so tiny any more. It's now two fields and includes electric hook ups for caravans and tents (there are probably now 30 to 40 pitches). Unfortunately this resulted in a noisier stay than expected due to other guests and hogging of the two toilets by guests who thought it was okay to wash their hair in the sinks, despite a long queue outside by people who actually needed the toilet.
However, the owners were lovely and friendly, the views were stunning and the overall area was wonderful. There's a lot of walking to do and the headlands and sea are a definite plus. We would definitely recommend it to others but it's not one for the Tiny Campsite wanter.
Wow! Wold farm is situated in the most amazing place with breathtaking views! We have just tried out one of their new pods and have booked again for a weekend in2 weeks time. Friendly welcome on arrival and very approachable people
