Had a fantastic few nights at this beautiful campsite. We wanted somewhere which had all the facilities but wasn't going to be to big or busy, as we have our 3 children who want to be 'independent' and play away from mam and dad, so this site was ideal for us to keep an eye on them. On arrival we were greeted by a lovely fella who directed us to our pitch and explain the facilities plus local points of interest. Throughout our stay we were regularly spoke to by the site wardens who were always visible and keeping on top of the site. The shower block and toilets were spot on and very clean, the washing area was good too and the outdoor Australian BbQ was fantastic. There was a little shop stocking the basics and a games room with 2 sofas, a tv and table tennis table. The location is just a short drive from York and the wife's favourite. McAurthur Glen Outlet. There was a field for tents which the kids could play football in. A 15 min walk took us to the local cricket club where there was a large play area for the kids. And a bar for dad.

All in all I would certainly recommend this site to others and have no doubts we will return in the future.

We found Ashfield by searching on here and what a find it was! The site has a majority of seasonal pitches but there are around 15 or so pitches for tourers and the tent field also. It has to be one of the best kept sites we have ever been on. The grass was well cut and collected (so no walking it into your van). The toilets and showers (3 toilets and 3 spacious showers for each men and women) were spotless. There is also washing up areas and a disabled wet room.

Our son loved the play area, it kept him busy for hours, and he was able to play football on the tent field as it wasn't being used.

There was a room with table tennis, settees, TV and a book library.

The two sets of wardens were lovely, they really took pride in the site, knew the area and made recommendations of good places to visit.

There is public transport at the end of the lane and within a mile there is Dunnington village with a convenience store and pizza takeaway (who delivery to the site)

York itself is only about 5 miles away and a park and ride is only 1. 5 mile away.

Yes there is a hum of road noise that can be heard, but it is not that loud and didn't effect sleeping.

Very good value, even at high season prices.

Me and my husband came to stay at this site recently, we had a wonderful time,

Such a homely, friendly atmosphere. The staff was so welcoming and went the extra mile to make sure we had everything we needed.

The site is large, clean and kept really well.

The toilets are lovely and clean

And there is other facilities on site that although I didn't use they were all very nice. Including a BBQ area, play area, t. V room and table tennis.

It was a 15 minute drive into York itself but there is a co op not too far from site to get all your food needs, as well as a little shop on site for the things you have forgotten.

I highly recommended a trip to the shambles and if your hungry stop in at the Golden Fleece, one of the local hunted pubs whose food is amazing.

Ashfield site was a lovely place to stay, I will be going back again on the future.

Homely, welcoming and wonderfully friendly

We are well travelled, but this must be one of the best campsite we have ever stayed at. The site is obviously cared for and loved. It is spotless, The heated toilet and shower facilities are kept at a five star immaculate standard

The wash up rooms are most welcome and one even has a kettle, freezer and micro wave free to make use of. The WiFi is free and always shows the strength as excellent and it is. The site is secure and extremely well maintained, grass well kept and picked up to save walking into our motor home. Well placed for lots of attractions, not only York also Pocklington and the designer outlet. Lovely village. Great pubs serving great food within walking distance.

Hagg wood is just down the lane and is impressive at any time of the year.

Doggy friendly, child friendly and even took time to care for and cater for us golden oldies. Sites like this are becoming fewer and far between and that is a sad decline as there is so much more than just providing space and facilities that make camp sites this truly a joy to visit. Thank You, and we will be back. Ps does the shop have milk?. I know it has beer and wine 🙂

This is one of the best campsites I have visited. The staff are very friendly and very helpful.

The site is a family friendly site and very clean and well maintained. There is a lovely play area for smaller children, but also caters for older children, with a longe/hang out room, with tv, table tennis and reading books. This is the only site I have visited that cater for the teens. It also has free wifi, which is a real must for the teens. The tiolets /shower block are spotless, not a cobweb in sight. The showers are 20p for 5 mins, which is ample. (They also have soft close toilet seats)In the play area there is an australian bbq, which we didn't have time to use, but will definitely use on our next visit.

The nearest pub is a 15 min walk, which serve excellent meals, a little further down the main road is a fish and chip shop called the Scrap box. You can eat in or take away. Excellent fish and Chips, and really friendly staff. The campsite is a 10/ 15 minute drive to the center of York, and about 30 minutes to Eden camp and Flamingo Land making it a great base to explore yorkshire.

Excellent staff. Excellent facilities. Neat, clean and tidy site.

BUT. Traffic noise. And traffic jams out of York at nearest A64 Junction. Handy for York Park and Ride though.

Also two other downsides. Firstly, the site, in common with others we have used, do not declare, clearly, on all possible booking forms, that they charge for showers. A small charge but it is annoying. The showers are excellent, by the way! They are not alone in this. Others charge more. Thaka Lea in Penrith charge 50 p a shower and do not mention the fact, increasing thereby their actual tariff by a minimum of 1 a day for a couple

Secondly, it is possibly the worst signed site I have used in 40 years. Coming from York there is a sign several hundred yards from the actual turning you take, which is positioned such that you might think you entered the site via a pub car park. There is then NO sign at the turning you have to take left into Common Rd. And NO sign where you turn right into Hagg Lane.

Traffic noise is the biggest negative. Will not return.

Management response: Thank you for your review and we aim to act on feedback wherever possible.

Our website tariff page clearly states shower price, but I have updated our UKCampsite.co.uk advert to state shower cost to make it obvious there too. There was no deceit intended.

I'm afraid that we cannot change traffic congestion around York, or on the A64, although we do offer advice on alternative routes to avoid congestion. Unfortunately we have no control over noise from the road behind, some people hear this more than others (as can be seen from numerous reviews). Sorry that this impacted on your stay.

As for the signposts, we have no control over those - They have been there many years and were sited by the council. We have tried to alter sign locations and apply for additional signage, but were advised that a brown tourist sign is only now given for places attracting over 100, 000 visitors per year, and we cannot have another sign.

There is actually one sign at the end of our lane, so you must have missed that. We do give clear directions on our website and on the UKCampsite.co.uk advert, so am not sure what more we can do.
