We have just enjoyed our maiden voyage in our new motorhome and chose this site for its closeness to York and advertised facilities. We were not disappointed in any way. Facilities very adequate. Plenty of showers. Site nice and wardens very helpful. Close to York itself on the riverside so short walking distance to pubs, shops and restaurants. All we could wish for in a weekend break. Will use this site again for sure.

Just returned home having spent Christmas week here and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Location for York is why this site is so popular as a 10 minute walk puts you right in the city centre. Only downside was the wintery weather but that didn't seem to put anyone off as site filled up as Christmas approached. Great park next door with swings etc for the kids. Shops,takeaways et c 5 mins walk out of back gate [you get a key on arrival] and 3 good pubs nearby selling proper beer!. Read reviews regarding wardens being unfriendly and officious but this really wasn't the case, they were doing a great job in very difficult conditions whilst we were there although I did see a chap have to move his caravan after setting up because his van was about 4 foot away from the white marker peg that they ask you line your van up with but they do tell you when you check in so there's no excuse. All in all a nice site in a great location. A tip-follow their directions from the A64 and A19 and you wont have any problems.

Having checked the CC website for space for the last 3 months this site appeared to be permanently fully booked. We turned up on the off chance and 'Site Full' sign was out. Even so popped into the reception and yes no problems can fit you in for 2 nights.

The Site Full board seems to stay out always - but there were spaces and others turned up and go on - why not move the board if there are spaces???

The lady warden on reception was friendly and helpful. The toilets look a bit dated but clean, plenty of hot water in showers but low pressure.

Overall a good site where its best point is it's location - less than 10 minutes into York city centre. At 15.70 for 2 adults it is great value for money.

The site is opposite the river and easy to find. I was slightly anxious having read other reviews about flooding but even after a whole day of rain the pitches drained well so don't let this put you off. The pitches are generously wide but not very deep and our 7m motorhome just fitted in nicely. They are all hardstanding and separated by hedging. The site is very quiet, although you do get some noise from the park next door but it wasn't intrusive. The park is excellent for children, with a separate play area, tennis courts, fenced skateboard area and football pitch. Further on (out of the park) it opens up and dogs can be let off lead. The wardens weren't overly friendly but were very efficient and yes, they are up and about just after 8am so don't bank on a lie-in! Internet access is an eye-watering 5.00 for 5 hours but this can be used anytime on any caravan club site. There is a locked gate at the rear of the site (you get a key) which gives quick access to a supermarket, various take-aways and bakery. York town centre is an easy ten minute walk and the coastal towns of Filey, Bridlington and Scarborough are only about an hours drive. There is also a designer outlet shop 10 mins drive from York. We are hoping to visit again next year.

Just returned from Rowntree Park as our last trip out this year.

The pitches are laid out back to back with hedges between most of them, and pitching is controlled with military precision.

We found the wardens to be at best stand offish, very unusual for CC wardens.

However the main attraction is obviously York. All shops, Minster etc within walking distance, very flat too. Site is next door to Rowntree Park itself which is huge and lovely with a playground for kids. Also alongside the River Ouse and a path ideal for walking.

Toilet block seems a little dated, and apparently the site has flooded the past 2 winters.

Local shops are a 2 minute walk through the back gate (key supplied on arrival) and major supermarkets a short drive away.

City Centre it is just a 5 minuet walk and you are there, we were greeted with a very warm welcome and the only request is to observe the speed limit which is not a problem.

As the site is very busy upon looking for your pitch you will be limited but for the size of the site the pitches are of a good size.

The shower block was very clean as was the pot wash area, there is a good information hut just to the side of this area.

Follow the signs not your sat nav like I did it will take you down a one way street.

This site is ideal for a visit to York, one last thing you have to depart by 11.15 due to access.
