Approach Farm Caravan Site is a family owned and run site for caravans and motorhomes, which we, Angus and Kerry Gowthorpe have run for 9 years, having previously been operated by Margaret & Peter Gowthorpe for over 20 years.
The site offers 16 electric pitches on a 1.25 acre grass site on our working arable and beef farm, as well as 2 non electrical pitches. The site is peaceful, relaxing and quiet, the grass is mown weekly, or more when needed!
The site is just 7 miles to the south of York, 0.5 mile north of Riccall village which offers shops, pubs, a cafe, a take away and very good Italian restaurant. There is a bus stop 500m from the site with regular buses into York and Selby, and a tearoom a 10 minute walk away.
York city centre is 25 minutes (non rush hour), the Yorkshire Coast, Yorkshire Wolds and Moors are an hour or less away.
Dogs are welcome - on a lead - and visitors are most welcome to walk on the farm tracks to exercise dogs or themselves. There are also nice woodland and riverside walks a few minutes' drive away.
The Sustrans York-Selby cycle track can be joined at Riccall for a very pleasant, safe and flat cycle or walk into York.
Whilst we don't have a shower block we do have a toilet for visitors' use.
There is a games room with pool table and table tennis table.
