Very private setting.

This is a small very well managed site. Plenty of water points and 16 AMP EHU.

The on site wardens couldn't be more hard working, helpful and friendly.

There is a very special built in covered BBQ which can be hired.

Flat level pitches part hard part grass. So you get the best of both.

The toilets are spotless. Showers cost 20p for 5 minutes. Plenty of hot water so no problems here.

The on site shop has plenty of goodies so if you were stuck you wont starve.

Dog walk is non existent. However, 600 yards up Haggs Lane you can walk part way around a wheat field and walk miles through Hagg Wood.

A park and ride is a short drive away for bus rides into York City.

A local Chinese restaurant delivers to site.

The Windmill pub/ hotel provides excellent meals at reasonable prices.

This is another little gemstone for my black book. Forget the CC Rowntree Park. This one ticks all the boxes.

Folding camper actually but no option for this. ;-)

Just had three nights at Ashfield and I cannot fault the site itself, just a few of the people who decided to use it!

As already stated by others, nice large flat pitches giving plenty of space. Facilities a little older than some but mostly clean and quite acceptable and paying 20p for a 5 minute shower is better than having to constantly press the button in the 'free' versions you often get.

10 minute walk to the nearest pub and some nice local walks also on the door step for dogs with owners.

Easy access to York if that is the reason for your visit.

We were unlucky that one peaceful day was spoilt by a group of around 5 caravan families who decided they would take over the place and drink and shout loudly for most of the day and let their dogs wonder around freely doing what dogs do. It still amazes me how some people can be so ignorant of others and of the simple 'keep dogs on a lead' rule. Luckily we left the next day so we only had one night of them.

I would certainly look to use this site again if I am up in the area in the future. I just hope next time the dicks do not appear.

A lovely flat site with a good feel.

We picked a week of very variable weather, it absolutely poured with rain for some of the time and the site got exceptionally waterlogged.

The facilities are quite old and dated but are kept clean - no mean feat with the weather we had as mud was absolutely everywhere! The facilities are also well maintained, a light out was replaced and a broken hairdryer mended by the next day.

Its a very friendly site and our children enjoyed it very much even though the playground doesn't have much in it.

The site is conveniently located close to Grimston Park and Ride which was 5. 40 for four of us return into York. Its also close to shopping centres with bowling alley and multiscreen cinema which we used in the bad weather.

The Windmill pub round the corner does very good food and caters for a gluten free diet.

The free wifi is a great addition (although a bit hit and miss) We would look to book here again if we decide to head back to this area.

Stayed at this site for the Easter weekend, the toilets and showers were clean with plenty of hot water, there was a charge for the showers, 20p for 5 minutes. The field itself was lovely and flat with pitches round the edge giving enough room for ball games to be played in the middle. The site was lovely and enclosed and had a nice play park for the kids, as well as a recreation room with a telly and table tennis. The site is family owned/run and sells homemade jams, chutneys and scones every day. This site is definitely one we will be going back to ( and that doesn't happen very often!). This site has a lovely feel about it, and deserves nothing but good reviews! Forget the comment put on by a previous user regarding the bird scarer, we only heard this very very faintly in the background. Not a problem at all! The village of Dunnington is only a 5-10 minute walk away with a lovely village pub and local cost cutter, which sells everything you need! The site does have a shop, which only opens for an hour in the morning and 1 hour in the evening, it doesn't really sell much apart from a few sweets for the kids. Much to my 14 year sons delight, the wi fi was excellent, and free! Without a shadow of a doubt we will return here time after time! Well worth a visit in my opinion!

I have read other reviews and can agree with some. I was also at the site in April with my dog but did not hear any bangs, a little road noise but nothing to disturb us. The site and staff were very friendly indeed and the wifi was superb, which was good as we could not get a TV signal! The walking especially for dogs was down a quiet lane and into the most wonderful wood full of blue bells and spring flowers and was the bonus of our trip. Children loved the play area and games rooms. My only gripe would be the shower block which was freezing, why offer a heat facility then leave the door and windows open? The bus service to York was good and a Cost cutter and butchers in the village excellent I too agree about the strange opening times and stocking of the shop. All in all I will go back it was friendly, relaxing and the pitches easy to get on and off and well maintained.

We have just returned from Ashfield today and we would like to let other people know that if they are taking a dog with them to think again. We have a small dog and as the site says its dog friendly we thought that this would be good place to stay to visit York and the surrounding area. But on arrival we were welcomed by the a succession of loud bangs, which we can only assume was a bird or animal scarer in the adjoining fields. This made our stay with our four legged friend quite fraught! In addition to this we thought as there was a shop on the site we would be able to get fresh milk and a paper etc but in the three days we were there we never managed to get to the shop before it closed again! They only seem to open for an hour in the morning and evening which is a bit awkward if you've forgotten essentials. The site is to its credit is well away from the road so is quite child friendly in that respect, but the road noise from the main Hull road may keep them awake at night. The toilets and dishwashing area were clean, if a little chilly!. Perhaps not the site for us!
