 Beechwood is located one and half miles from monks cross, which has two supermarkets loads of other shops swimming pool, and karting. Further up the ring road is another retail park with cinema, and bowling and more shops. The park and ride is at monks cross taking you right into York.

The site is level most hard standing a huge. The toilet block is the usual high standards and my husband says the mens showers blew him away.

A chip van comes round three times a week but if that's no good there's loads of places to eat around.

The roads are busy but there is a traffic light on the round about now which helps getting out. The turning for the site is on the round about itself if you miss it go to next round about and come back.

The children's park is good and there is a field for games too.

All in all will be going back.

 Visited Beechwood Grange for 2 nights as it was our first time Towing our caravan.

Wardens nice, friendly and helpful. Site spacious, clean with excellent toilet facilities.

Good for park and ride into York, had a lovely day in York so much choice of things to do in this lovely city.

Location good for us as it is only 60 miles along A19 from home, only down side for me is you have to go out in the car. No walking on doorstep.

Highly recommend the mobile chippy.

 The Beechwood Grange site is a fairly large flat site with trees and hedges bordering pitches and the site itself. It shares a drive with a stud farm which results in dog walking restrictions. The approach to the site is poorly signposted and SatNav gets it slightly wrong.

Once there though the wardens are friendly and efficient. We were informed which pitches were available and those which were closed because of the weather. We picked a large pitch just behind the facility block, which as usual was clean and warm. It was never busy but this might be different in the summer and a full site. A Fish and Chip van visits the site three times a week and cooks to order.

The site is not far from Monk’s Cross shopping centre and Park and Ride, here there is a good range of High Street and shopping outlet shops, there are also two supermarkets and ASDA and a Sainsbury’s. There is also a swimming pool to entertain the children. The Park and Ride obviously feed’s York and its many attractions.

We were there over the new year, and the wardens had erected an extension to the garage area. From 10:30 pm they provided some liquid refreshment some nibbles and ran a raffle which raised £75 for a cancer charity. All the wardens were there along with about thirty people. It was a really good evening provided by the wardens. I really enjoyed this site and would use it again in order to further explore the area.

 The entrance is tucked away on a very busy roundabout with no signs prior to it so care must be taken not to miss it. Once found its a short drive down a private road past a stud farm.

Usual Caravan Club quality, Staff friendly, pitches large, good children's playground and also a dog walk and in an ideal position for visiting York.

Only negative point was the one way system in operation on the site which in the dark was fun to say the least.

Would definitely use again when visiting the city.

 We have visited this site many times, and will be visiting again.

The approach to the site is not well signposted. The traffic used to be hellish, although this is much better due to the improvements (traffic lights and filter lanes).

We visited the week before christmas, and the site was knee deep in snow! It's a good job the toilets were there as many peoples water froze overnight! The toilets and pot wash area are always immaculate, as is the rest of the site. There is a large play area and ball games field set at the back of the site. Next to this is a large fenced in dog walk area. This is brilliant for exercising the dogs, as they are not allowed up the driveway due to the stud farm.

There is a toby carvery just off the roundabout which is walking distance, and the Monks Cross shopping centre, park and ride, and supermarkets are only a five minute drive.

 We've just returned from a week at Beechwood Grange on the outskirts of York as we couldn't get in to Rowntree Park.

Ignoring the awful traffic queues around the site, this is a lovely place. The play area is great and the 9pm closure strictly adhered to by most during the week, there were a great bunch of people there, really considerate and friendly. Our pitch was very roomy and backed onto a grassy area, giving us more privacy than normal.

The only fault was the female warden who obviously wished that it was a child-free zone. She was incredibly abrupt and at times, downright rude to any parent not walking 5 paces behind their child. A number of parents had complained about her manner, which was a real shame. The male wardens were lovely - joking with the children and really enjoying themselves.

Overall, was the site better than Rowntree Park? The on-site play area is a bonus as is the spaciousness of the site and its proximity to the Park and Ride. Rowntree is great for leaving the car and walking into the city but the play area is next door. The wardens at Rowntree are lovely.

 Excellent site very well looked after. Showers were immaculate, pitch size excellent.

Staff very helpful, excellent fish and chip van visiting site on Mon Wed & Fri at 6.30 all cooked to order.

Park n Ride about 1 mile away or Taxi into York about £10.00.

Monks Cross is a £5.00 taxi ride, plenty of shops and large Asda supermarket.

Looking forward to our next visit.

 A very nice site, ideally situated for visiting the city of York. The wardens were a little 'business like', which is unusual for the Caravan Club however the site itself is very well kept and the shower blocks very clean. The pitches are a great size and well spaced. Not much to do around the site as it is located immediately next to a busy dual carriageway, but the Park & Ride is easy to get to and there's a great retail park up the road. There's a large children's play area and field and of course plenty to do and visit in the surrounding area.

 Very nice site, Huge pitches friendly staff,Excellent facilities and nice playground for children. Monks cross park and ride 1-2 mile away, use this for visits to york centre £2.30 return lots to see and visit.
We went to Dalby forest £7.00 per car excellent value spend all day there plenty for kids, Skywire and large play area and excellent visitor centre, also visit the remains of Rivluex Abbey £10 for two adults,or if you are in York centre go into York Minster and climb the tower 278 steps, not for the feint hearted! (don't lead at the front stay at rear of the group and take your time, when you reach the top you are greeted with fabulous views over York. Also at Monks cross is a retail village with Asda, Sainsburys or Lidl for your daily requirements and Clothing shops, WhSmith etc.
Finally there's a Toby inn over the Roundabout from the site which serves excellent meals. NB:Traffic delays last 1.5miles to the site entrance until roadworks are completed in October 2009.

 This was my first time using a carvan club site and I was not disappointed. On arrival on a Friday in December with snow on the ground I found the reception staff were very friendly and were only too happy to help.
When checked in we were told to select a pitch then inform reception of the number. All pitches that I could see where hardstanding and fairly large, If pitching your awning rock pegs essential.
On the site there is a playground and a great dog walk. The toilets are among the cleanest and warmest for the time of year I have stayed in and were a pleasure to use.
On site there is an information shed with all the information you could need including pub menus takeaway menus and taxi numbers.
The park and ride is only a 15 min walk or 2 min drive but I opted for a taxi as there was 4 of us it was only £10 each way so was very reasonable.
I am returning the same time this year and would highly recommend it.
