Having spent 3 whole months on lockdown, UK families are now eager to break free from their homes and enjoy the freedom of holidaying that we previously took for granted. Covid is still a considerable threat and many travel restrictions are still firmly in place, so a huge number of UK families are expected to holiday in the UK this summer. Online searches for self-catering properties, hotels and campsites in the UK have skyrocketed recently and booking calendars are likely to fill up fast.
With such beautiful scenery on offer and so many fascinating places to explore, the Yorkshire Coast is perfect for those who like to get that little bit closer to nature on their annual family holiday. In this article, we are looking at some of the Yorkshire Coast campsites which we think would be ideal for a last-minute family staycation. Each offers a variety of accommodation options so sleeping under canvas is entirely optional.

Humble Bee Farm
Set in a rural location close to Scarborough, Humble Bee Farm offers a peaceful family retreat. The family-run working farm has much to offer despite being one of the area’s smaller, independent sites. A real countryside experience is on offer here but it’s close enough to some of Yorkshire’s favourite resorts to provide you with the perfect family seaside break.
This site is surrounded by beautiful scenery and there are a number of excellent nature trails to enjoy on the site. With it being a working farm, there are also opportunities to meet some of their lovely animals like their pigs, hens and sheepdogs.
At Humble Bee Farm they have some wonderful wigwam cabins, Normadic yurts and bell tents for those who prefer glamping to camping.
Home to the delicious Beacon Farm Ice Cream, this lovely, spacious campsite is super family-friendly.

On the site, you will find all the expected essential facilities as well as a shop, a children’s play area and dog walking facilities. There is also a fishing lake nearby. One of their main attractions is their Fairy Tea Garden but, sadly, this will remain closed for the season due to the Covid pandemic.
