Why you'll love Thornwick Bay...
Thornwick Bay Holiday Village has all the ingredients needed for a great stay by the sea. You can do as little or as much as you like on this pretty part of the Yorkshire coast. You can splash and swim in the pool, grab a bite to refuel and hit the dancefloor all in one day if you wish.
Our Activity Barn has a packed schedule of activities to try from Archery Coaching to Segways and Activitots, or you can head to The Boathouse and activity lake for a range of brilliant water sports. There’s also a sand and pebble beach nearby, perfect for rock pooling and paddling, and beautiful clifftop walks around the headland.
