Barmston Beach holiday park on the Yorkshire Coast has much to offer families. Of course the location itself is a real winner with sandy beaches right on the doorstep. Situated in the bustling seaside resort of Bridlington you'll find boat trips, funfairs and even 18-hole golf. Other seaside resorts are within an easy drive for a change of scenery including Filey and Scarborough.
The park itself is really geared towards families too. The heated outdoor pool is the place to be to relax, splash around and make the most of sunny days. Kids love the waterslide and the children's club on site for 5-11 year olds. Toddlers are catered for too with the sandy beaches and the soft play area for under 5s.
Entertainment is high on the agenda at Barmston Beach and Sparky's Krew Shows are not to be missed. For eating out you could head for The Sands Tavern or perhaps enjoy a takeaway from Food Choice Takeaway and Restaurant. There are plenty of options for full family meals and for light bites. The welcoming atmosphere is ideal for enjoying a relaxing drink as well.
Staying at Barmston Beach will feel like a home from home. The holiday homes have plenty of home comforts and are well equipped for self catering with kitchens and microwaves. Beds are made up on arrival with all linen provided. We love the Barmston Gold Plus accommodation which offers 12ft wide spacious living accommodation, double glazing and central heating. Choose from 2 or 3 bedroom caravans.

Had a good holiday and would visit again. Grandchildren loved the poo. All staff very helpful and nothing was too much trouble.
Lovely caravan with decking brilliant veiws across the bay car parking a little tight by the van as we were right at the end so had to do a little reversing .Well equiped full size fridge freezer,dishwasher,large range oven, a proper settee and chairs and dinning furniture,ie not fitted furniture.
What a fantastic holiday we had here. With kids aged 11, 3 and 20 months we were skeptical about whether this would keep all of them entertained but we were presently surprised. We stayed the week before peak season and although it specified that entertainment would be limited, we found it suited us perfectly. The Madness and Mayhem team, Mike and Kate, we're brilliant and always got them up to dance. There was an indoor soft play area and a great park in the grounds so there was always something to do.
The outdoor pool was heated although this is closed at certain times. This wasn't a problem though as it specifies this in the welcome pack and it's only for an hour at a time twice a day and they put on entertainment by the pool at these times.
We stayed in a silver caravan and the caravan far exceeded our expectations. It was immaculate on arrival with freshly laundered bed linen so no need to use the stuff we took from home. The only negative I could say is our oven didn't have any shelves so made cooking a bit more difficult but it was no big deal.
The clubhouse was modern and the food was lovely. The staff were fantastic and always happy to help.
The beach is a 5 minute walk and nice and secluded and it's a short 10 minute drive into Bridlington for the harbour. We found everything we needed within a 10 minute drive and found we had something to do everyday without having to go too far or spend a fortune.
All in all we had a brilliant holiday and will be heading back next year with the grandparents too.
If you're after a relaxing family holiday in beautiful surroundings then Barmston Beach is the place to go!
The caravan was second to none and there are no complaints.
Caravan was clean, looked like a new mattress and new crockery etc. Plenty of space for 2 plus 2 dogs.
