The camp site is lovely,

The toilet block and showers are very clean,

Facilities for children of all ages are very good,

The owners are lovely people very approachable,

The camp shop is adequate and the pitches are good.

But if you intend having a quiet drink with friends even with no music playing I wouldn't recommend it after 11 o clock as you may be told off, but not by the owners.

The site is ideally situated as a base for site seeing.

The Wi-fi was working when we where there! Apart from this a lovely site with very friendly owner, and a delightful couple who live in a caravan on site. They made our holiday by being so friendly and suggesting areas to visit/

A great place to stay if you want to visit York - it's an easy 3 mile drive into the city. Whitby is a lovely drive away - take the route across the Moors, and enjoy eating the fish when you get there!

If you have a dog you will have to take it off site to walk. But just outside is a lane leading to a farm, but only very occasional traffic so no lead required if your dog is obedient!. Our dog loved running about in the woods a little further up the lane. So did I - could have walked for ages, it was beautiful.

The shower/toilet block was immaculate, as was the whole site. We went in term-time so only one or two small people about. Judging by the play area I guess they would be welcome.

A lovely site. We'd certainly use it again if we go back to North Yorkshire.

We stayed at the Ashfield site near York with our son and his family who were in a tent, we were able to be next to them, they seem to save the middle of the site for that purpose which is good when you go with family.

The wardens were nice and friendly and very helpful. We had an awful lot of rain in the week we were there and it did get a little waterlogged underfoot, but we can't help that.

The shower block/washup areas were clean, although you have to pay for the showers, they were adequate. The pay as you go bbq is good. The free wifi was excellent.

The site is very handy for the park and ride into York city and all the attractions there. All in all we had a very nice weeks holiday.

Just got back after 5 days at Ashfield camp site and have thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

The site is very clean and tidy with spotless toilets and showers. The owners/wardens are very friendly and helpful with, obviously, loads of local knowledge.

Besides the usual facilities you would expect from a good campsite, there was an Australian barbecue, (never experienced one before), a microwave and a kettle ! These are situated next to the children's playground and the shower block; very handy.

The village of Dunnington is about 1 mile away and can be walked via a network of lanes and footpaths; very handy if you have a dog that needs exercising. The local pub (the Cross Keys) is dog friendly and serves excellent food at reasonable prices.

Just before you enter the village there is a large children's adventure playground which looks absolutely fantastic with swings, slides, climbing frames, and lots of other things; (I regretted being over 50!).

York city centre is about 3 or 4 miles away and can be accessed by Park and Ride at Grimley Bar, which is about 5 minutes down the road. (Parking by car in York is very expensive, we paid 10 for the day; ouch!)

York racecourse is about a five minute drive away for a memorable day out.

We had excursions to various places including: Bridlington, Filey, York, Harragate, Malton and Pocklington, all within easy reach from the site.

The one and only fault with the site, in my personal opinion, is that the main York to Hull road runs about 300 yards from the tent field and gets busy from about 7am. However, after a day or two, you hardly notice the noise.

Overall, highly recommended; especially if you have kids, or dogs, in tow!

When we arrived, on a sunny Wednesday afternoon, we were booked in by the friendly resident wardens and subsequently shown around the facilities.

I always think first impressions are a good thing, and as we were staying for four nights I was a bit more critical, nothing here that was a miss, toilets were clean and fresh, playground for the kids (although we did not have any) was more than adequate, even pay as you go barbecue stove was on offer (2 per hour). The shop was stocked with useful items including some wines and beers.

A small walk for the bus to York, or into Dunnington were there are a couple of pubs and a couple of shops, including costcutters, but be aware they shut around 5.00PM.

I could go on and on about this site, I was VERY impressed, and if it were your business, the wardens on site would make you relaxed, in the knowledge that things were getting taken care off.

One small negative, the wifi was not working, but it was getting work done on it when we were there, so maybe next time

First time visit to Ashfield from West Midlands. Straightforward journey to site. Pitch was pre-booked in advance with small deposit paid, balance on arrival. Found staff to be friendly and helpful. Small site with main camping in second field, was basic but with some electric hook ups if required.

At the time of our visit it wasn't very busy so able to pick corner to ourselves. Grass could have done with trim but seen a lot worse. Small shop sells basics at typical site prices, small playground for younger children is separate from camping field (which I prefer).

Toilets and shower facilities are clean and tidy (20p for showers for 5 mins). The site is close to main road and road noise can be heard but this did not bother us, we would definitely use the site again.

Park and ride (Grimston Bar) is only 5 mins away by car and is good value for travelling into York (2. 30 per adult return, children under 16 free). We visited York Railway Museum, free entry, definitely worth a visit, but restaurant bit pricey.

Whitby is about an hours drive away. Eden Camp (WWII theme museum) near Malton about 30 minutes drive away but allow 3 - 4 hours to look around.
