The swimming pool at Blue Dolphin holiday park

Situated on the Cleveland Way clifftop coastal path, Blue Dolphin Holiday Park has one of Haven’s most diverse sporting programmes. The heated indoor pool has a huge multi-lane slide, while the heated outdoor pools have a tumble-wave slide, and then there’s the SportsDrome, offering fun sports for all ages. Trampolines and crazy golf add to the fun, and there’s a fishing lake with bumper boats!

Children are entertained throughout the day in the various free clubs for different age groups, and the park is safe and secure for them to go about. Every evening you can look forward to FunStars shows, games, contests, party time, with acts by touring artists scheduled throughout the season.

The comfortable two or three bedroom caravan holiday homes allow dogs to stay in the Standard and Standard Plus ranges, and they’re also welcome in the touring and camping areas, where there are over three hundred pitches for tents or motorhomes and touring caravans.

The Spar Convenience Store can supply your self-catering needs, or you have the option of eating in the Mash and Barrel cafe, or a choice of take aways.

The nearest beach access is three miles away at Filey, and also within easy reach, Scarborough has a lighthouse, castle, sea life centre, miniature railway, plus two glorious, sandy and safe beaches.

The city of York is also well worth a visit. See the York Minster and the castle Museum, or journey through York in Roman times in Jorvic. There are sightseeing buses, or a circular cruise on the River Ouse, and for railway enthusiasts the National Railway Museum has free entry. You can see and even go aboard many of the trains, while the kids enjoy the outdoor play area, miniature rides, and interactive exhibits.

Further up the coast is Whitby, with its famous 199 steps up to St Hilda’s Abbey on the clifftop. The town itself has a maze of alleys and streets running down to the harbour and quayside, with jewellers selling Whitby Jet, antiques centres, other shops and a market. The replica of the Captain Cook’s ship, The Endeavour is moored in the harbour, and you can also visit the Captain Cook Memorial Museum to learn about his early life and the start of his naval career.

The North Yorkshire Moors Steam Railway now runs as far as Whitby and you can ride on it across the Yorkshire Moors to Goathland, where the television series “Heartbeat” was filmed. There are some great walks exploring the area here.

Whether you opt to stay on the Park or explore local places, your holiday is sure to be full of action and fun.
