Location-Location, that was what this park had. First off the area, York town centre was within a ten min walk and was probably one of the most interesting towns I have walked around in this country, we walked the walls which took 2 hours. Took my son to the national railway museum which was free and was a very good day out, again we walked it about 20 minutes, we also drove out to Whitby and Scarborough which took about a hours drive

The Site- The caravan club obviously relies on Location with this site, out of our 15 day holiday our 6 nights were the most expensive. Tthe site is prone to flooding so the reception and toilet/shower block is raised from the ground, to say they were dated was a understatement. They were not clean either. We arrived on the Sunday and it wasn't until Friday that the ladies toilets had a working hand dryer, there was sometimes paper towels left after cleaning but these ran out very quickly and was never replenished until the next day. Also the wardens thought it fine to cut the hedges at 8am, we are on holiday and would have liked a lie in. The wardens were not as friendly as we have found at other places, my daughter took our dog out for a walk and on the way the dog decided to go for a number 1 by the grass, the warden spoke to her sternly to remove the dog, we are considerate owners and always carry the correct equipment everytime we are out with him.

Location is good for York city centre.

Pitches are hard standing all in rows quite tight with a small hedge to separate,does give the feeling of staying in a big car park.

The site is well run with military precision.

We eat out in York a couple of times and were surprised to see at night that this fantastic city turns into a stag / hen party venue with loud drunken groups roaming the streets.

However there are a good couple of local pubs and shops only 5 min walk away.

This site is well kept and easy access to the city. We were pleased to see that the fish and chip van still came round the site just as good as last time listen for the horn.

The railway museum is a must and it is free. The castle museum is also very interesting. All in all York is a super place to visit, but be warned this site is always pre booked, you might get a cancellation but best to book in advance.

Site is in an excellent position for the centre of York. 15 Mins walk and you re in the heart of the shops and pubs.

Site consists of main area which appears a bit overcrowded as caravans are practically on top of each other and the Riverside area, which houses about 12 pitches and is a lot less crowded, but you have to go into the main area for the toilet & shower block,not far at all.

The site is alongside the river which has lovely walks and cycle paths along it, also next door to Rowntree Park, which is lovely.

The only downside to this site, and has been form the years we have visited is the attitude of the wardens, It seems they are annoyed with you for even just turning up!

I am considering cancelling our booking for the summer as it has really put me off, although we love this site.

As most previous reviews have stated this an excellent site for visiting York and the surrounding area.

No real need to go over the many attributes.

Only downside on our visit was the water temperature in the showers - boy you don't want to linger - they are seriously cool but that may have been a temporary malfunction.

Now a real moan, not at the site or its wardens but at the many members who pay no heed to the advice / warnings about no arrivals before noon, in our experience this is probably the most time sensitive site in the network due to the narrow access road and yet some arrived at 11.00am and by noon more than a dozen.

You have to vacate this site by 11.15am to try to avoid problems with incoming arrivals but please to help the Caravan Club keep on good terms with neighbours etc. do not arrive before noon.

We have visited this site on many occasions and everything has been said about it. Facilities are what we have all come to expect from the club sites. It is so popular, you really do have to book it well in advance.

York is a short walk away and if you go out the back gate there are all the shops and take aways you could want. We have always used the Swan Inn as a watering hole if we fancy a pint as they have a good selection of real ales. The landlord of this pub has now taken charge of the other pub(The Slip Inn), just down the road, where there are also a good selection of real ales. This pub however was still a work in progress when we visited. If you are visiting York, this is the ideal site, but check with the site about flooding before you arrive.
