Pinewood Park, Racecourse Road, Scarborough, North Yorkshire YO12 5TG
Yeehah! Camp Pinewood goes one better than other tipi sites, offering cowboy shacks and Wild West wagons, too. It’s easy to see why it’s a favourite spot for kids. But over the years it’s seen a curious transformation. Not just the westernification of its glamping getup, but also a host of other wonderful camping options, so that those darn-nabit-yella-bellies who want a more low key stay are also welcomed along.
The wild west caboodle now accompanies several other camping areas including a flat, no-frills tenting field with ample space for just 14 pitches and fabulous views over the Yorkshire Wolds. The pre-pitched tipis, meanwhile, are equipped with futons and cube beds, rugs, outside picnic benches, and the luxury of electricity (so not exactly the cowboy lifestyle), while the shacks, cabins and wagons, come with double beds and modern furnishings, like toasters, microwaves and heating.
For families it’s a perfect escape. Kids disappear off into the wooded area at the bottom of the site, which has paths weaving around the trees, perfect for hide-and-seek or Cowboys and Indians, while a great little gift shop at reception sells Wild West toys for little and big kids too.
And it’s this flip-side to the location that brings a surprising adult appeal. Outdoor weddings and private events are all catered for (and ever growing in demand) while it’s enviable location draws in those seeking handy accommodation on the outskirts of Scarborough. It’s just a two-mile walk to the centre of town, enjoying a sandy bay, crumbling old castle and historic spa. For those looking for a holiday on the Yorkshire Coast, there are few more well-appointed spots.

Pinewood is superb base for visiting all the brilliant nearby attrcations.
We spent a brilliant weekend at Pinewood Park just outside Scarborough in one of the fab Tipi tents. The tent was spacious with foam beds to sleep on and plenty of room for four. It was May so the heater was appreciated and heated up the tent perfectly. The kids had a great time playing in the surrounding woods and making friends with our fellow campers. The site has a fun cowboy and indian theme and we will definitely be returning.
