We wanted the experience of travelling over the wooden toll bridge, so travelled into Linton from the opposite direction to that recommended. The warden helped us out with a longer EHU cable, so that we could pitch up alongside the river. Had a lovely meal in the on site cafe, homemade chips, what a treat!

The lock itself is undergoing extensive restoration, hardstanding pitches are not available, as they are being used by the waterways staff. My husband said the gents facilities were good, but the ladies are still awaiting renovation. The warden did say they are in the midst of updating and enhancing the site.

Overall a little gem, quiet, peaceful and very friendly staff.

What a lovely campsite. Could not have asked for a more picuresque spot. The site has all the facilities you could require. Gents toilet block is spot on although the girlfriend daid the ladies are a bit dated but are in the process of being done up. The pup on site does the best Chilli Nachos I've ever tasted. A the Geordie Landlord even told us the secret ingredient. All the staff made us feel really welcome and were very helpful. Bus stop at the entrance to the site makes access to York a short 30 min bus ride away at 4.40 return it beats paying for parking. Enjoyed our stay so much we stayed an extra night and will definitely be going back again next Year.

Thanks to all who made our stay a pleasant one.

This site is located next to the River Ouse and is great location for chilling and watching the boats go by. It is a small site with around 20 pitches, all with electric available and all flat.

The check in was quick and by a friendly chap, who showed us where all the facilities were and left us to it. We pitched up and checked out the on site licensed cafe. The food was reasonably cheap and looked good, although we did not eat there. They had a few beers / lagers / wines and soft drinks on offer and very well priced too.

As stated the site is next to the canal with the lock in view and the sound of gushing water all day and night is very relaxing and lovely to watch. Being on the canal you can walk for miles and miles in each direction and there is a good dog run either side of the site along the canal path.

The local village does not have much but a pub / curry house (in one) and a small grocers / newsagents. The curry house was delicious and we enjoyed a meal there on the Sunday night. It is about a ten minute walk from the site to the newsagent and pub.

The toilets / showers are accessed by a key fob, so nice and secure and keeps people out, but the campers. The showers cost 1 but last for ages and are nice and hot. Toilets clean and well maintained.

The site is just North of York so you have all the attractions of the area to enjoy, but if midweek you need to drive to them, as too far to walk.

Overall a great site and one that we would return to. 17 per night for campervan, awning, electric and 1 adult and 1 child. 5 refundable deposit for the toilet key fob

We have just returned from a visit to the site with our little boy and thoroughly enjoyed the peaceful sight. The owners were very helpful and suggested different pitches that would suit our needs and this allowed for us to have a pitch away from the road with ample space for our little one to run around safely away from the road and other cars.

The pub was friendly and reasonable with a children's menu, and serves food until 9 and drinks till 1.

Showers and toilets are clean but basic, one of the showers does not fit the holder though, although I was assured this was going to be fixed.

All together an enjoyable and peaceful holiday, with beautiful surroundings of the river, waterfall and the lock.

What a gem of a site. 2 nights 4 Adults and 3 Children. This site has fantastic views and beautiful surrounding areas. Plenty of places to fish and some lovely dog walks. A well stocked shop only 10 mins walk.

The owner of the site is really helpful. The pub on site is lovely, the owners make you feel so welcome, pub is open from 9am right through to 1am. The pub is well away from your pitch. Drinks are very reasonable and so is the food. Food looked very good and is served till 9pm and if you want breakfast they do a breakfast in the morning.

The toilets and showers are very clean, the male toilets have been refurbished and the women's are due to be done this winter but to be honest this is not a problem as they are kept very clean ( you will see a few people have complained about the toilets but let me tell you we have seen much much worse ).

The kids loved the lock and enjoyed helping. We have had a fantastic weekend and will definitely go back again.

Arrived early Friday afternoon and was met by the owner and directed to the pub / cafe for a drink.Straight after drink our caravan (Holiday let) was ready and we got straight in.Excellent prices for the two statics,the 4 berth is 150 per week for four people and the six berth is 275 per week.

Surrounding area has two villages Linton on ouse and Newton on ouse. Linton is a 10 min walk and it has a shop that sells basics, reasonably priced.There is a nice dog walk across the fields to the shop.

On site there is a pub / cafe reasonably priced Fosters 2-50 a pint and John smiths 2-40 a pint at time of this review.You can also help operate the lock and get talking to plenty of passing boat people.Excellent site if you like fishing by the way.

All in all we had a very nice time here and it is very handy for York (9 miles away ) and Leeds.
