Spent the Easter Bank Holiday weekend at this site with my husband and 2 children.

The site is in a lovely location and the view over the river Ouse is beautiful. The facilities are excellent and very clean, staff are also friendly and helpful.

The children loved watching the boats pass through the lock whilst the grown ups were able to enjoy a few drinks at the pub.

The site is a short drive away from York city centre so we were also able to do some sight seeing.

We all had a wonderful time and will definitely visit this site again.

We found this site quite dissapointing and expensive for what it was. The pitch was 15.00 +vat then extra for electric hook up bringing it to 20.00 a night.

The toilet block was ok for the male (but only one toilet, so there was a queue on a morning) but the ladies wasn't very clean and pretty old and shabby.

The grass on the pitch could have done with cutting as it was pretty long and wet. All in all not a site that we will be visiting again

We wanted the experience of travelling over the wooden toll bridge, so travelled into Linton from the opposite direction to that recommended. The warden helped us out with a longer EHU cable, so that we could pitch up alongside the river. Had a lovely meal in the on site cafe, homemade chips, what a treat!

The lock itself is undergoing extensive restoration, hardstanding pitches are not available, as they are being used by the waterways staff. My husband said the gents facilities were good, but the ladies are still awaiting renovation. The warden did say they are in the midst of updating and enhancing the site.

Overall a little gem, quiet, peaceful and very friendly staff.

What a lovely campsite. Could not have asked for a more picuresque spot. The site has all the facilities you could require. Gents toilet block is spot on although the girlfriend daid the ladies are a bit dated but are in the process of being done up. The pup on site does the best Chilli Nachos I've ever tasted. A the Geordie Landlord even told us the secret ingredient. All the staff made us feel really welcome and were very helpful. Bus stop at the entrance to the site makes access to York a short 30 min bus ride away at 4.40 return it beats paying for parking. Enjoyed our stay so much we stayed an extra night and will definitely be going back again next Year.

Thanks to all who made our stay a pleasant one.

This site is located next to the River Ouse and is great location for chilling and watching the boats go by. It is a small site with around 20 pitches, all with electric available and all flat.

The check in was quick and by a friendly chap, who showed us where all the facilities were and left us to it. We pitched up and checked out the on site licensed cafe. The food was reasonably cheap and looked good, although we did not eat there. They had a few beers / lagers / wines and soft drinks on offer and very well priced too.

As stated the site is next to the canal with the lock in view and the sound of gushing water all day and night is very relaxing and lovely to watch. Being on the canal you can walk for miles and miles in each direction and there is a good dog run either side of the site along the canal path.

The local village does not have much but a pub / curry house (in one) and a small grocers / newsagents. The curry house was delicious and we enjoyed a meal there on the Sunday night. It is about a ten minute walk from the site to the newsagent and pub.

The toilets / showers are accessed by a key fob, so nice and secure and keeps people out, but the campers. The showers cost 1 but last for ages and are nice and hot. Toilets clean and well maintained.

The site is just North of York so you have all the attractions of the area to enjoy, but if midweek you need to drive to them, as too far to walk.

Overall a great site and one that we would return to. 17 per night for campervan, awning, electric and 1 adult and 1 child. 5 refundable deposit for the toilet key fob

Reviewer: Beci26 1 review from this member

We have just returned from a visit to the site with our little boy and thoroughly enjoyed the peaceful sight. The owners were very helpful and suggested different pitches that would suit our needs and this allowed for us to have a pitch away from the road with ample space for our little one to run around safely away from the road and other cars.

The pub was friendly and reasonable with a children's menu, and serves food until 9 and drinks till 1.

Showers and toilets are clean but basic, one of the showers does not fit the holder though, although I was assured this was going to be fixed.

All together an enjoyable and peaceful holiday, with beautiful surroundings of the river, waterfall and the lock.
