Background

 

Newton Shores is a family run site and has its roots in farming. The site began offering pitches for tourers in a small paddock (once used for cattle) near the house some 25 years ago. Ann Caley wanted to offer people a place of peace and quiet and time away from the busyness of everyday life. Her aim was to offer simple hospitality so those who came could shed lifes worries in a place where they could simply 'just be'. Ann passed away in 2007 but the family, along side farming and other business', still have the same aim and continue to welcome both old and new faces and people who have become friends over the years.

 

Location

 

Situated on the eastern edge of the Holderness plains (2 miles from Aldbrough) and literally 200 metres from the sea, Newton Shores is surrounded by open farmland and big skies and the site is a favourite for those interested in nature, birdlife, the beach and SEA fishing. Tree planting has continued since the family first moved in in 1970. Then little protection existed, the North Sea blew straight off the sea, across the land to the house. Now we have a different story. Even though like many homes and villages along this coast, the land will go over the cliff one day, Jack Caley has continued to feel passionate about planting tree's and creating cover for wildlife. A few years ago a large pond was dug out. Still in its early days of pondlife it is lovely to see the wildlife that the area is beginning to attract. To add to the quietness of the site there is only one way in or out of Newton Shores, the lane ceases 1/2 a mile further along and traffic is minimal. The busiest the road usually gets is in summer when the surrounding crops are being harvested.

 

As well as the smaller grass tourer pitch, across in the next field there are 20 well spaced bases currently being offered as seasonal pitches for tourers. They come complete with utilities ready for connection.

 

Facilities

 

You will find lots of space at Newton Shores. Space to walk and space to settle. Surrounded by open farmland and big skies, the sense of freedom and space is everywhere. The larger site offers very good space around each base, you will not feel to close to your neighbours. Even on the beach there are few visitors and sometimes you maybe completely on your own. Great for those who crash around in the city during the week and are looking for that much needed time away.

 

1. For tourers/motorised caravans we have a small touring pitch (for 5 - 7 tourers) complete with electricity hook ups and a site sink waste disposal unit. Newton Shores has its own sewage treatment plant and so blue fluids are NOT permitted. Please use green bio / formaldehyde-free / biodegradable disposal fluids only.

 

2. We have NO communal toilets/showers. Because of this camping here is NOT possible.

 

3. Please enquire about seasonal pitches.

 

4. We operate a 12 month holiday licence. Please call on +44 (0) 1964 527303

 

5. In keeping with our aim to offer peace and quiet we have no clubhouse on site.

 

6. THE POND AT NEWTONSHORES IS NOT A FISHING FACILITY. THERE IS BEACH ACCESS FOR BEACH FISHING.
