Visited August bank holiday weekend for 4 nights. Nice welcome, Pitches well maintained, no problems with electrics getting overloaded. Showers and toilets clean, only problem they close 10. 30 for cleaning which is far to early. No family room for showers. Disabled shower room should also be made available as family shower room.

Small Costcutter shop in village about mile away. Not much choice but okay for emergency supplies.

Shop at camp site not very well supplied. We had to drive 8 miles to get caravan supplies.

Just visited ashfield for 4 nights flat pitch, very welcomed facilities explained clearly even bus routes and timetable given, toilets and disabled toilet clean, didn't use their showers but hubby did and they were fine. Everyone was friendly the windmill pub is 5 minute walk excellent food we used the park and ride[10 minute drive] to travel into york centre taking the hassle out of parking. Car boot on sundays 5 minute drive away. Our friends came to stay 1 night and we just asked the park owner for a small charge this was fine. We will visit here again definitely

We've just got back from a few days at Ashfield and it was a very pleasant experience. From the moment we arrived the staff were very friendly and helpful, giving me a tour of the facilities and even helping drop our trailer onto the pitch.

The facilities were good, wash rooms were clean every time we visited. Showers take 20p for 5 mins but we were able to get change from the shop so no problems.

The kids loved the play area and we felt comfortable letting them explore the site and play as long as they wanted. Table tennis table in the games room proved a hit!

The site is ideally suited to exploring York (10 mins from park and ride) and the surrounding area. We had a great day at Bridlington which was about an hour away. There is a fantastic pub, The Windmill, within walking distance. Great food!

I'm sure we'll be back to Ashfield. Really couldn't find fault. Thanks for a great stay!

Just spent 3 nights over the Bank holiday weekend at Ashfield and loved every minute of it. The site is ideal if you have a young family, loads of space for the kids to do what they want without bothering anyone. The pitches are of a good size and the facilities were clean and tidy.

The site is great for visiting York with the bus stop at the end of the road although we opted to use the park and ride as the buses were more frequent. There's 3 pubs all within walking distance with 2 serving food, if you opt for the Windmill just remember kids have to be out of the restaurant by 9:00pm.

All in all its a great site which will be using again.

Reviewer: Swest 7 reviews from this member

We went here the first weekend of March, so basically as soon as the campsite opened for the season. We are new to caravanning, and the management were extremely helpful to us by helping us back our caravan into the gravel pitch (ok, I'll admit, they did it for us!).

There were some touring caravans around that were being stored there, but only a few occupants that weekend (one being the friendly warden), so the site was extremely quiet. There was an adjacent field connected to the site, but empty and I didn't check it out. My daughter loved the horses in the neighbouring fields and spent plenty of time looking at them and petting them. Our field was well maintained and we were sheltered by bushes and trees, close to the office.

My children enjoyed the playground at the campsite, which was adequate with a big circle swing (looks like a bowl), a slide and a few swings. I was told there was a much larger playground down the road in the village, but we didn't check it out as we had activities planned.

There was an outdoor covered Aussie style bbq area by the playground. There was a shop at the campsite that I did not visit, but there is also a shop just down the road that sells petrol as well. And just behind it is a garage if say, you get a nail in your tyre and need it repaired! Very friendly people! There is also a fantastic pub (The Windmill). The food is very, very good.

The toilets at the campsite were being painted, so we used the disabled one, which for the very few people there was perfectly adequate. I don't think it was heated, though, so it was pretty cold, but it was well kept with a large shower area.

We were about 10 miles from York city centre, which we visited one day. We were very close to the Air Museum, which we also visited. I didn't notice any road noise, as we were off on a side road and not on the main, however early mornings there were a lot of what sounded like rifles going off. There were woods in the distance, which is where the noises were coming from. You couldn't hear it inside the caravan, however. I find the sound of guns a little unnerving, personally, but it wasn't enough to deter me from staying there again. We stayed for 3 nights here and were happy with the location, facilities and service. We would visit again.

Just returned after a weeks stay at Ashfield.

Nice little place, quiet, secluded, with just the right amount of facilities:

~ showers & toilet block
~ play area
~ barbecue area
~ microwave & washing-up
~ free Wifi
~ shop
~ games room
~ EHU

Pros:

Beautiful surroundings, and the village of Dunnington is quaint and a two minute drive down the lane. Great for those with kids and/or dogs. Lots of space to run around, some nice dog walks just off the campsite.

Good base for York, East coast, Harrogate etc, as well as North Yorkshire hiking/walking. Lots of other great places to visit within a reasonable distance, as well as some little gems - Pocklington and Stamford Bridge spring to mind. Go for a wander, grab a beer, watch the world go by.

Love shopping? Very close to Monks Cross shopping outlet (approximately 5 miles) and the likes of Morrisons, Sainsburys etc - which is great when you're self-catering. Also a Go Outdoors superstore (all found at Foss Bank). Handy if you need something camping related :)

Facilities are all well cared for, toilet blocks etc cleaned regularly. On-site staff friendly and helpful. Pitch sizes are generous (ours was huge) and the Wifi was pretty impressive.

BBQ's are allowed providing you're sensible and raise them off the ground.

Although I don't have young children, they're clearly very welcome, and every child I did see had a big smile plastered all over their face. In short safe and secure for those with little ones.

Dogs - again, welcomed, though they need to be on a lead. Ours was fine, tent peg and a long guy line did the job.

Cons:

The A1079 IS a little noisy. You do switch off to it but worth a mention.

Shop - like someone else has already said, it should be open for longer hours. 9 while 10am and 6 while 7pm, which meant that you'd got a very small time frame within which to buy bits and pieces or, like us, swap your freezer blocks. That said. You can re-freeze your blocks, just remember the shop opening times.

And that's it. Highly recommended, great for families and family/friends groups, looking forward to a return visit.

Tips:

~ take a few 20ps for the showers. 20p buys you five minutes hot water - it's plenty.

~ if the shop's shut (and mostly it is) there's a petrol station a minute from the site (back on the (A1079) that's well stocked with essentials, and the village of Dunnington has a CostCutter shop in the centre, on York St.

~ The Cross Keys pub in Dunnington is worth the walk - just up Common Lane, child friendly, good pub food.
