Reviewer: Pygmyangel 1 review from this member

We stayed here for two nights, Saturday and Sunday, with our 2 children aged 9 and 4 after reading the good reviews here.

I have to say I wasn't looking forward to camping again after a break of several years, but this site made my re-introduction a little easier.

The site itself is flat and quite small and very well maintained. It's only a short drive to the nearest York park and ride and only 10 minutes away from Monks Cross shopping centre. Everyone we spoke to at reception was very pleasant and helpful and on arrival we were shown where to pitch and taken for a quick tour of the facilities.

The toilets and showers were very clean and there was a decent sized, clean, enclosed washing up area. There's also a room with a kettle and a microwave which I thought was a very thoughtful idea, especially for those in tents. The room with some sofas and a TV was also a nice touch which we didn't really use as the weather was nice while we were there but it would come in handy when it's not so nice. The children's play area was up to date, safe and enclosed.

We had a drive into the village for some fish and chips (10% discount if you ask for a voucher from the campsite reception) which is 5 minutes up the road and spotted a fantastic adventure play area.

I did have a few niggles with the site, nothing major but worth mentioning. The showers are coin operated and cost 20p for 5 minutes. As the site cost over 20 per night I think charging for showers on top of that is maybe a little excessive.

We were pitched at the far end of the camping field which backs onto the main road. Some people may find the noise annoying.

The opening hours of the shop are very limited.

All in all, we enjoyed our stay and would come back if we ever want to camp near York again.

Just returned from a 2 night stay - our first camping experience! What a fantastic site -friendly staff, toilets and showers were spotless.

Lovely playroom with TV for kids, ping pong table (would be better if there had been any ping pong balls) although you can buy them at shop for 30p.

Playground was ideal for kids and all in close proximity to camping field - felt comfortable letting 7 yr old twins wander up on their own.

Aussie BBQs were different - we enjoyed one the first night - although 2. 00 for 30 minutes.

Only con was camping field did have traffic noise from A1079 - but after a couple of nights I am sure you would get used to it.

Basic shop = could maybe have been open for longer, but well stocked with essentials.

All in all I feel a bit spoilt (especially with the free Wi fi) and worry that this site has pitched our expectations too high!

We turned up at this site without booking, and the wardens could not have been more welcoming, even happy to lend me an extension lead for the hookups (longer leads recommended). Camping fields surrounded by trees, so a nice enclosed feeling. Fellows campers/caravanners friendly, without being intrusive.

Though there were mainly caravans at this site, tents were clearly welcome. Facilities were excellent, good playground, table tennis and TV (fortunately the children mostly ignored this, but could have been useful in really bad weather), small shop, including alcohol, and penny sweets, which kept my children occupied with visits for hours.

The children (9 and 11) really enjoyed cycling around the tarmac path, and repeatedly said how much they liked the site. There was a small kitchen with a kettle and microwave, and outside barbecues, which looked good, but we didn't used them this visit.

There's a great playground in the village, and York is a short drive away. I'd forgotten how much there was to do in York. Highly recommend this site.

First impressions were very good. Very clean and tidy. We booked in very quickly and wardens friendly/helpful. We were shown around the site.

There is a nice clean washing room with plenty of hot water, showers and toilets were clean and never ran out of loo roll. The showers were 20p on a timer. There is a room with microwave and kettle which is very handy !

There are a couple of swings/kids climbing frames and there is also a games room which has table tennis, books, tv and sofas to lounge about on. There is also a shop selling essentials which was very handy.

Free Wifi which was excellent !

Excellent location, not far from the park and ride and approx only 10 mins from centre of York. Would visit again as no complaints whatsoever, great site, lovely people !

The camp site is lovely,

The toilet block and showers are very clean,

Facilities for children of all ages are very good,

The owners are lovely people very approachable,

The camp shop is adequate and the pitches are good.

But if you intend having a quiet drink with friends even with no music playing I wouldn't recommend it after 11 o clock as you may be told off, but not by the owners.

The site is ideally situated as a base for site seeing.

The Wi-fi was working when we where there! Apart from this a lovely site with very friendly owner, and a delightful couple who live in a caravan on site. They made our holiday by being so friendly and suggesting areas to visit/

A great place to stay if you want to visit York - it's an easy 3 mile drive into the city. Whitby is a lovely drive away - take the route across the Moors, and enjoy eating the fish when you get there!

If you have a dog you will have to take it off site to walk. But just outside is a lane leading to a farm, but only very occasional traffic so no lead required if your dog is obedient!. Our dog loved running about in the woods a little further up the lane. So did I - could have walked for ages, it was beautiful.

The shower/toilet block was immaculate, as was the whole site. We went in term-time so only one or two small people about. Judging by the play area I guess they would be welcome.

A lovely site. We'd certainly use it again if we go back to North Yorkshire.
