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.

Very nice site. Very friendly wardens and also seasonal caravan members. Usually visit caravan club sites but they were both booked for this weekend so tried this site, was very impressed. Nicely laid out site, separate fields for tents and caravans and lots of room.
Showers very clean only negative had to pay 20p each time. Nice shop, washing area etc. Good but small playarea, could do with expanding a bit. Good indoor play room with table tennis etc.
My seven year old loved it here and made lots of friends hardly saw him while we were there, felt very safe. Good area for visiting York, park and ride 10mins away.

We have just spent a very wet and windy weekend at this site. I could not fault the facilities, everything you would expect and more, showers (20p) / toilets, shop, aussie style bbq (2.00), recreation room with table tennis and TV, washup facilities and a room with microwave and kettle. Everything was kept really clean and the owners were very friendly and helpful. Oh and if you have children there is a nice little play area with climbing frame and slide.

The camping field was nice and flat, grass was short, nice sized pitches, and even though we had loads of rain it didn't get water logged. However, the negatives are that the camping field is furthest away from all the facilities, you have to walk through the caravan field to get to them! A bit of a bind in the night if you need the loo, especially when its raining.

This wouldn't stop us returning to the site, however the noise from the road certainly will. The camping field is pretty close to the main A1079, now I don't know if the wind was blowing towards us making it louder, but it certainly was very noticeable for us.

Anyway, if road noise doesn't bother you then you won't find a nicer site.

We arrived for a weekend break and on entering the site were met by the site manager who after booking in showed us to our pitch which was well set out and plenty of space in between. The site is a bit on the small side with one field for tourers and the other for tents with only one toilet/shower block to service both. Also families on the tent field had to go through the touring section to get to the toilets which is not ideal if your caught short or toilet training two three yr olds as we were. But that said they were nice and clean. The showers were spacious and water was hot but not many on the site so maybe different in busier times.

No pub on site but there were a couple within walking distance. Kids play area wasn't very big but a plus point was a Australian style bbq which was two large hot plates for cooking with a thatched roof above for unAustralian type elements. This was either gas or electric not sure because we didn't use it, at a cost of two pound for 30mins, sounds a lot but the plates were large. On the whole this site was not our cup of tea as we like a site with a bit more life and better facilities for kids but was ok for a weekend.

Very warm welcome by the owners who personally show you to your site with lovely flat ground and plenty of space. Toilets and showers spotless, although 20p charge, plenty of time and very hot. Shop is only open 3 times a day at the moment but very well stocked with all essentials.

A short walk into the village and you can get a bus direct to York, it runs every half hour and the pub and the chippy there really nice. On the site they had a play area for children and also an aussie bbq area. I was really impressed with this site everyone very friendly and will be back soon .
