I would suggest the North Landing car park is your best bet for a van that size.

Its Pay and display but its not much. 60p an hour I think

There is also the lighthouse car park where you might get in the top corner but a bit tighter than the north Landing

https://goo.gl/maps/fxayxJ6B9NY2KqNv5 Also Pay and display. You can see from the streetview image there is a van in the top corner and coaches do go in there. If its busy though you might struggle in that one but September should be ok.

Its a stunning walk of a mile and three quarters between the two along the cliffs.

Thanks Barry, that's great info.

They both look eminently suitable. We get there on Mon 6th Sept so hopefully quiet as all the little darlings will be back at school then!

Both look to have a caff and be on the coast for a walk so we'll try the first one you suggest first if that's the easiest/best option.

The caravel pub is shut at the moment at the North Landing but the little cafe will be open. Probably a bit more choice at the pub/cafe at the lighthouse and there is another on 100 yards from there. Either way you can have a walk on the cliffs and get refreshment at either end. Which site did you book on in Brid? If it's the one opposite the links Golf course on the Flamborough road the Golf course used to do good meals with a fantastic 1st story decking area overlooking the sea. If you are on the c&mc site you can walk from there.

Once again thanks matey - I appreciate it.

We will be staying at The Poplars in Sewerby. Seems close enough to the bus/land train/railway station at Bempton/Flamborough etc...plus next door to a pub too!

Oh wow! Thats the first campsite we ever stayed on in the van way back in 2008. They also have a little motel which we used to go and stay at before we started motorhoming. Nice couple that run it, really helpful and friendly (assuming its still them). The Martonian will be the pub right next door. Bit Phoenix nights but its alright really. Cracking little cycle ride to Brid from there. Just a short bit on the road past Sewerby Hall, then if you go straight on round the back of the Ship Inn (nice pub), through its car park you are straight onto the cliffs with a good cycle / walking (tarmac) track which takes you all the way down to Brid and the mile long prom which is wide so you can cycle on all the way to the harbour and town centre.

Thanks again for that Barry - you are a star!

That is really good info as Mrs GMJ is really taking her time getting confidence back in her cycling so we try and keep on flat, solid tracks with no cars. That looks just about perfect for us as she can't manage much more than 8-9 miles in total even with the electric on.

The only busy bit on that route is the very short section 100 yards maybe as you turn right out of the lane your site is on so she should be fine. There might even be a pavement. Actually where you are if you turn left out of the site you can explore the countryside roads for miles and they are always dead quiet. Nice cycle ride to Bempton from there. Couple of pubs and you should cycle onto Bempton cliffs. There is a visitor centre and there is a small charge but the views and wildlife are fantastic.
