 Well what a Fabulous spot, We have never done the CL sites as we usually go for more equipped sites but as this was a higher price for a CL we knew that it would be a good spot, and it is, its lovely, we're so glad that we came.

The views are spectacular over the boats and down the river.

Good little shop that sells all your essentials.

There is no dog walking facilities, you would have to go off site to walk your dogs but that suits us as we don, t have any!

There is no outdoor washing up area unfortunately but, as this is their first year hosting a caravan site they welcome any feedback and are willing to listen to all suggestions and am sure in the future we will see a wash up area and any teething problems soon rectified.

As previously mentioned the shower block that is farthest away is the best one but its only approx 500 yards away and its a nice walk passed all the boats moored up and worth that extra little walk but having said that the one next to the caravans is more than adequate.

Lovely little play area near the 'nicer' shower block and although its not right next to the caravans and is slightly out of eye shot there are tables and benches you can go and sit at with a book or a glass of wine! while the children play. There is also a fab play area in the village just behind the village hall, its a left just before you get to the local pub, and just passed this play area there is a field full of lamas!its a lovely walk out.

You need a key card to get in if you arrive after 5pm so make sure you arrive before then or they will send you one in the post before you come.

Don't get this York Marina site mixed up with the York Marine site as they are two totally different sites!

Bus outside the entrance takes you to York or Selby, also its only round the corner to a park and ride at the McArthur Glen Outlet.

We hired a lovely new boat from the reception for the afternoon as a surprise for the family and had a great time, paid 109 for the full afternoon and sailed up to york, we took a picnic with us and had a fab time, it was well worth every penny and something just a little bit different to do.

In a couple of years when this site takes off am sure it will be quite difficult to get booked in.

Good luck to them, as all in all this is a lovely spot and all the staff we have met are very friendly, willing and helpful. We will be back, English weather permitting!

 Great Site, I visited with my daughter for our 1st solo outing without my husband.

The views across the river and boats sailing by are lovely.

The toilet block is clean and well looked after but as has been previously mentioned is not as nice as the marina one which is further away, but you are given a code to access this.

There is a great playground for children.

The ' cycle the solar system' cycle path is fabulous and is only a short ride from the marina entrance.

The site appears to drain well as we had a pretty wet weekend but there were no problems with leaving as the site is on a slight slope down to the river

We are returning with my husband towards the end of the Month.

It's a little expensive for a CL, more like CC site prices, but for the location and proximity to York I guess its worth paying.

 This is a gem of a site!

Stunning location! We have just spent 2 lovely days here, lovely sunsets over the river and watching the boats sail by. The five spacious pitches all seem to be alongside the river bank in a field about the size of a football pitch.

Staff helpful and very friendly, spotless toilets, lots of hot water, it would be difficult to pick fault with this place.

Naburn village is just a few minutes walk and has a smashing pub, the Blacksmiths arms with very good food at reasonable prices.

We will return!

 We have just spent two nights here and are booking to come back in July.

For a certified site, it is actually great and similar facilities to that of many Caravan Club sites.

York Marina is lovely with lots of boats of all sizes, we were surprised at how many large boats there are here.

Good points

Electric hook ups
Lovely views
Bus stop right outside into York which only took 10 mins or so
About 5mins to designer outlet and park and ride.
Lovely pub serving fab food, dog and children friendly, even has a pick and mix stand
Day boat hire from marine

Areas could be a little better

Water from taps in toilets only just Luke warm, hubby said not great for shaving
Only one shower so if 5 caravans here would be a bit of a wait
Light in ladies toilets goes off when in shower, just a timing issue I am sure.
Toilets could be a bit warmer, only heating is a door air
Curtain which doesn't stay on long enough when in shower

The picture on website shows lovely new shower block but these are a fair way from caravan club area so worth knowing that this is not the toilet block you have access to.

We came here when the river had burst it's banks and it rained nearly all weekend, but all in all was a good stay. With just a few tweaks to the shower facilities it would be fabulous 
Management response: Dear Motorhomefun,

Thank you for your recent feedback. We have spoken to our contractor who is addressing the issues with the toilet block this week. We are also now issuing a pass which allows any Caravan Club customers to use our newer toilet block in the marina should they wish to.

I am sorry the weather was so appalling during your stay. If you would like to re-book with us over the summer, I would be happy to offer you a free night's stay in the hope you have better weather next time!

Many thanks
