Reviewer: Debbie36 7 reviews from this member

Generally a lovely site, very close to York. We were in the tent field and had ehu. The field was great, lots of room to pitch and room in the middle for the children to play. It was a fair walk to the toilet in the night and there was no lighting which as a woman I found a bit daunting.

The only thing I can fault this site on is the toilets and the showers. There were only 3 toilets and 3 showers which sometimes meant you had to wait. The loo roll was very good quality, none of that cheap stuff here! The toilets didn't smell very nice and could have done with some air fresheners. You had to pay 20p for the showers for 5 mins which I don't mind but I didn't like having to get undressed and then lean out of the door to put your money in. Also when I had finished I didn't like not being able to mop the shower out or get rid of the soap suds as there was no way of getting any water to do this.

A free microwave to use was a great idea. The kids loved the play area and the games room. The homemade cakes in the shop were delicious and the shop prices were very reasonable.

We used the park and ride into york which was great 2.30 return per adult with the kids travelling free.

If you are in the tent field, you might find some earplugs useful as you can hear all the animal noises from the adjoining field which are lovely to hear during the day/evening but at 3am when the cockerel crows and then the geese start it can be quite disturbing.

We will be returning to this site mainly due to the location for york and the fact it only took us 40 minutes from home. 20.50 per night with ehu for 2 adults and 2 children during the school hols was very good value for money.

Site very clean and tidy, as were the toilet and shower blocks.Games room open with a table tennis table and TV.

Small shop come office which is only open two or three times through out the day. Weather was great which helped, pitches were flat and most had EHU. It is only a small site, though would definitely come back again.

Two pubs in village approx 15 mins walk away and one on the main road about 10 mins walk away.Garage five min walk away for papers.

Park and ride into York 5 mins away, which was great. Site is near the main road, which you only hear at night time, though didn't bother us.

Site location is great only 5 min from the A64.

We arrived late Friday night in the dark but was warmly greeted on site by the wardens who promptly showed us to our pitch. Our pitch was a great and a great size too plenty of room for our caravan awning and car.Fresh water was within 20 yards. Office and all other amenities was a very short walk across the field.

Once settled on site there was a very nice Chinese in the next village of Stamford bridge, plus a chip shop and pizza shop only 3.5 mile away.

Plenty to do my young son loved riding his bike around plus there is a great play area, and our 17 year old loved the free internet access.

The only bad point was there was no heating in the toilet block, usually this would not be a problem but for the time of year we felt it would benefit from a little warmth especially at night-time.

All said a very nice pleasant site, one which we will be visiting again.

P.S. The east coast was only 45 mins drive away.

What a great site. Loads of room on our pitch lovely facilities . Friendly owners and staff. A great location for the countryside walks we went bramble picking with the kids they loved it near to plenty of attractions like york maze.
Only downsides were a little pricey {45 for 2 adults 2 kids and 1 dog in a 5 man tent} and the ground bent most of our pegs but we will definitely go again

The field was flat and grass short, the toilets and showers, always spotless, were cleaned everyday around 10am, the caretakers were a lovely couple, a 5 min walk to the pub on the main road, The Windmill, really good food, maybe 10 mins to the village shop, bus stop to York, and two more pubs, the campsite shop was not badly priced and had a large chiller with lots of cold beer, it was heatwave week, we were very lucky, York is great to visit, if we are up there again we would not hesitate to use this site, the free wifi was a bonus, the site bbq's looked great but never got round to use them

What a gem of a site - will definitely be returning here.

The site is only a couple of miles from the main roads around York, but the site is approached via a rural lane and then a leafy drive. We stayed in the tent field which has a mixture of EHU and non-EHUs around the edge: the middle of the field is left free and is ideal for cricket etc.

The tent field is surrounded by shrubs. As other reviewers have mentioned, there is road noise from the York to Hull road but this didn't bother us. The ground is quite heavy and didn't seem to drain particularly well but it didn't cause a problem for us. We thought it was to do with the location in the vale of York.

The owners can't do enough for you and the facilities are great. Games room (ping pong / TV / books and magazines etc.) with adjoining laundry and internet room. We didn't have EHU but the owners were very happy for me to charge my Blackberry in the laundry for no charge.

The shop is fine for basics. There is a Costcutter in Dunnington village but that, too, is quite basic so don't expect to buy your gourmet treats from here!

The toilets and showers were spotless. The cubicles were large with a seat in so my 7 year old was able to sit on the seat and get dried / dressed while I was in the shower. Lots of handy hooks on the door. Soap and toilet roll was provided.

We didn't use the Aussie barbecue but it looked great. My daughter loved the play park which was near all the facilities for handy when I was washing up etc.

Pitches were marked out and were a decent size. My sister had a four-man and a two-man on her pitch and was not charged extra.

Would definitely recommend this site and will be returning soon.

The only negative was the wasps - there were loads hovering around us when we were preparing food etc. They weren't on the play area, middle of field or anywhere else so didn't bother the kids

Oh, one other thing. We are a party of one adult and one child but I had to pay the minimum 'two-adult' price.
