This was our first ever time camping and we were recommended to this site by someone we met in the local camping shop. We weren't disappointed.

We wanted a quiet location to avoid being embarrassed in front of too many people while erecting our tent outside of our garden and that's what we got.

It was a nice site with good facilities; toilet / shower block with male / female facilities as well as a disabled / family room which had 2 showers in it (ideal for someone with small children), washing up room with fridge / freezer and microwave (free of charge and honestly shared!), washing machine (coin operated) and electric hook-ups (on certain pitches). Everything was clean and papertowels, soap etc topped up daily.

We walked from Acaster to Bishopsthorpe along the river and just outside Bishopsthorpe was another campsite right next to the river adjoining some moorings. This site looked packed and the tents and caravans were really close together verging on being crammed in. Not somewhere we would want to go!

We thought we had a good first time (the weather definitely helped there) and have booked to go back with the children in September although we would recommend taking something for them to play with as there were a couple of swings but that was all.

All in all a nice site with friendly owners.

I am a happy caravaner who's van is at the moment seasonal and I have been bribed once again in purchasing a tent by my 16 and 11 year olds after 8 years. This was our first outing, just me and the wife, the kids stayed at home as it was our 20th wedding anniversary and our first visit to york.

Yes the site was small and not commercialised but it was well maintained, the showers were always hot and clean, there is a fridge freezer and microwave in the pot wash room which is free to use. There is a a lot of trust as people left wine, beers and food in the fridge with no problems.

Some comments say there is not enough room I disagree I have a large 3 bedroomed tent and had plenty of room and as from what I could see the other pitchers where all adequate. The village chinese takeway was the best I have ever had and the ship pub was welcoming and right at the side of the river.

The river bus to york was a real treat and the cost was reasonable as parking in york was 2 per hour. There is a small co-op in both villages just a couple of miles away, a large Tesco Extra and park and ride about 5 miles away.

The best advantage of of this site is the owners I have rarely met owners that were so friendly and trusting with there guests.

A very small but pleasant site on the edge of the village. Facilities basic but very clean and centrally located. Plots are level, well drained with trees and picnic benches to break up the site. A few swings for the kids and some space for running around.

Pub within 5 minutes - The Ship - excellent food, but be careful on Saturday nights (no space for eating due to reservations), otherwise take away and shops are a mile away. Highly recommend River bus to York - leaves from next to pub car park at weekends (only one trip per day at 09:45, but gives plenty of time for a day in York).

This seemed to be the smallest and quietest of the campsites in the area - but we thoroughly enjoyed it.

This was our first ever family camping trip and turned out to be a bit of a mixed bag. The weather was sunny for a bit, then raining for a bit- repeat until bored.

The welcome we received from the owners on arrival was very friendly and helpful, explaining the rules and letting us know that we could spread out due to no booking on the adjacent pitch. This site is big on recycling which is a good selling point for us, wish more sites would pull their fingers out.

First impressions were that the site is quite compact but we were lucky in that we visited when the site was quiet. Even though at the time we only had a 4 man tent (instead of the 8 man tent we subsequently bought) we would have been a bit squashed in if we'd had neighbours.

Site facilities are quite basic but adequate for the number of pitches, always kept clean and tidy with hot water at all times (so far as we could tell). Children's playground consisted of a few swings which seemed to be enough to keep ours entertained for brief periods. Ball games and bike riding is also welcome.

Plenty of picnic benches around the site, almost 1 bench per pitch so eating ouside is easy and convenient.

Good location for day trips into York but beware of the timetable for the river boat, they don't run as frequently as one may hope or expect and certainly not every day. We missed out on this (one of the main reasons for using this site) so had to rely on the car.

We didn't visit the local pub so cannot comment on the food or drink, although there is a nice Chinese takeaway on the Wetherby road out of York.

Overall we really enjoyed our stay here. That said, now that we have a much bigger tent, we probably won't visit again as I doubt that we'd fit!

We turned up to this site and were a little disappointed. Although it does have a lovely rural setting, it was a bit too small for our liking - we were told to pitch our tent literally RIGHT next to the farm house and buildings and it felt horribly overlooked with no privacy at all. There was a small grass area adjoining this bit, which perhaps would have been a bit better, but the spot offered to us was just too exposed for our liking - so unfortunately we decided to leave and go somewhere else. The owner was great about it - said there was no point staying if we weren't happy and didn't charge us, so we appreciated that. In summary - great location, helpful owner, seemed to be pleasant enough - just too cramped and small a site for OUR preference - your likes/dislikes may be different!

Only stayed for the one night but enjoyed our stay very much. Owner was very helpful and provided advice on local amenities. We weren't aware of any local shops close by but there was a local pub within walking distance. Large Tesco was a short drive away, where there was also a bus stop into York Centre which returned fairly late at night. We stayed up quite late around a fire pit and were left to our own devices so can only assume there are no general rules regarding noise.

Only one shower but this was clean and big enough for the sixe of the site. Good washing facilities and a fridge available also.Would definitely recommend as a fairly remote yet relaxing site.
