  • Share on Facebook

Kyle Gregory is General Manager at Reighton Sands Holiday Park in Yorkshire, and says the incredible views across the park is what most impresses visitors here, along with the park’s spacious size. 

Here, Kyle recommends the top five things to do when staying at Reighton Sands.

1. Visit the beach

The park's beach train (subject to availability)

The best thing’s the beach, hands down. It’s incredible. There’s actually quite a bit of history there as well, some shipwrecks off the coast. The Hawkwood is the name of a local shipwreck and it’s actually what our restaurant is named after too. And then you’ve got all of the World War Two turrets and bunkers, some are still on the cliffs and some have now fallen all the way down the cliffs and onto the beach so that’s quite cool.  

We have direct beach access which can be a little steep, but we also run a beach train every 15-minutes – it's a carriage pulled by a tractor.

2. Play a round of golf

We have a 9-hole, full-sized golf course, and it’s reversible, so if you play it in reverse, it’s a full 18-hole golf course. It’s huge. And if you stand on the golf course, because it’s higher up than the park is, you can see from Filey all the way to Bempton, it’s a massive, brilliant view.

3. Visit Filey, Scarborough and more

Generally speaking, people come here to relax and explore the local area. Locally there’s the Filey Bird Garden & Animal Park, and Scarborough Sealife Centre, they’re quite popular attractions.  

It’s worth visiting Flamborough and Bempton Cliffs as well. Flamborough’s just lovely. Bempton has all the wildlife, it’s full of puffins.

The lazy river and water jets at Reighton Sands

We’ve got a swimming pool and a lazy river that adjoins onto the pool. We’re quite lucky in that even in the height of peak season we can accommodate most people.  

One of our newer activities is Footgolf. Apparently we have the largest Footgolf in North Yorkshire. It’s popular, and I know a lot of the team do it!

5. Relax and dine

Sit outside with your drink for the ultimate holiday feel

The Hawkwood, our restaurant, is beautiful. Everyone that ever walks in kind of goes ‘wow, what a lovely restaurant’, and they don’t realise it’s twice the size really, because in the summer the outside area is so massive that it doubles in size. Dogs are allowed in a designated part of the restaurant, but that large outdoor area is under cover and heated, and that area is entirely dog friendly. 

We also have The ShowBar for entertainment. It is just a really really nice size ShowBar – I think our facilities are actually a good size for the park.

What do you love about Reighton Sands?

For me it’s the culture and the team, the views, the community and the feeling. I’ve worked at a few Haven sites over the years, but something happened at Reighton that made me fall properly in love with it. Just the views – my gosh – wherever you go on park there’s just these really really nice views.

Let2offset - make no site fee payments until 2031

Let2offset is a contractual lettings product that offers eligible owners a guaranteed letting income at a preferential rate (calculated each year) in exchange for a stipulated number of letting breaks. It also allows eligible owners to pay their site fees and receive their letting income in 12 equal monthly instalments; the monthly site fee amount charged by Haven will be after deduction of the letting income.

‘Make no site fee payments when using Let2offset until 2031’ is available at 33 Haven parks excluding Burnham, Cardigan View, Far Grange, Garreg Wen, Lydstep Beach, Riviere Sands and Seaview.  The letting income received will vary by make, model and location. The monthly site fee payment does not include running costs e.g. utilities, rates & insurance.

“Make no site fee payments when using Let2offset until 2031” is applicable to new and existing customer purchases of new Atlas Sahara 3 Bed or equivalent or superior grade holiday home purchases made through Haven where customers have also signed up to Haven’s Let2offset contract. It is not applicable to private sales and cannot be used in conjunction with our free Site Fee promotion.  It is available across 40% of eligible Parks and applies when letting a new Atlas Sahara 3 Bed holiday home (or equivalent or superior grade for 15 weeks.

An example of how “Make no site fee payments when using Let2offset until 2031” operates under Let2offset is the purchase of an Atlas Sahara 3 Bed holiday home at Primrose Valley with a monthly site fee of £585.00 (includes purchasing discount of £45) and monthly letting income of £803.67. The monthly difference equates to £218.67, which will be credited to the owner's account. Both letting income and site fees are subject to yearly pricing reviews and the monthly site fee costs and letting income shown in the example are based on 2024 figures.

Modelled assumptions on expected annual site fee and letting income charges over the 7-year lettable life of the Atlas Sahara 3 Bed indicate that under Let2offset it is anticipated that these customers will continue to receive a monthly credit during this period, however, this is not guaranteed. The modelled assumptions are based on the historical performance of Haven over the past 5 years of trading.
