Date of Visit: April 2006 Unit:  Tent
Reviewer: Boobear 3 reviews from this member

Obviously it was quite early in the year and there was only perhaps another five tents in the field. Enjoyed the solitude and space!
Shower block was clean and everything worked. A fair hike to it though, especially at 3am.
No shop on the site and although Castle Howard itself has shops they are high brow and expensive. Still worth forking out for the bacon.
Easy access by car to York which is a great day out. We went to York Dungeon which was fun.
Back at the site, nice lakeside setting with distant views of the castle. Good for nature and bird watching.
Went for a Thai meal in a near by town and it was superb.
Quiet and relaxing stay. Shame we got soaked!

A lovely quiet site, perfect for us camping virgins! Really nice welcome at reception from very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Excellent facilities, spotless shower/toilet block and a nice big tent field with huge pitches. Very quiet when we were there which meant everyone had loads of room. Ideal site for exploring North Yorkshire. We were lucky in that our fellow, (more experienced), campers were great fun and and we enjoyed a few beers together! All in all, our first camping experience was a hit!

Had a great 2 night stay here midweek in May. We were the only people in the camping field and the warden was very nice and helpful (especially as we forgot half of our stuff, like tent pegs and mallet - doh!). The ground was flat and the toilet / shower block was modern, clean and generally excellent (possibly the best we have seen on this our second camping year). 
Only a short walk up the hill to Castle Howard which is a great place where you can buy some nice cheeses etc. from the deli or meat from the butcher. We bought some nice meaty burgers and cheese and cooked them back at camp. You need to drive to the nearest shops which are about 4 miles away.
There were quite a lot of swarming midges due to the lake being fairly near but it was a small price to pay for a great site. 
We were the only people here during our stay so obviously we had the best of it all but I would still highly recommend it. p.s. Lots of ducks and ducklings passing through wanting bread (which is nice if you have kids or are 30/40 something kids like us). Russell, Manchester

Reviewer: Benoandflower 2 reviews from this member

We have just got back from a 4 day break here and it really has gone down in our estimations. No hard standing for caravans unless you place you caravan all year round! Ground uneven. It rained none stop and was water logged everywhere. We had to help one poor couple get out of a ditch that they get stuck in. No shops , No sale of gas. And you have to be off 12pm prompt !

The good thing about this place is its very quiet , The NEW wardens are really nice and helpful people and the shower blocks are very warm and clean .

The owners of Lakeside really need to get their fingers in their pockets and spend some money updating this site . For the price they charge we could recommend better sites.

Oh and take a 7ft pole for your tv ariel otherwise you wont be able to get any channels !

I stayed at castle howard for 2 nights in August with 2 children. it was brilliant. There was a fish and chips van on site so you could get something for your tea and you could go fishing at the big lake on site. There is a big castle nearby and there was a childrens weekend on and it had bouncy castles, a man doing caricatures, a massive playarea and this woman was telling stories. The nearby town is beautiful to! i would recommend this campsite to anyone. You will have a fantastic time.

The camping field is on a slope and you feel second rate to the tourers as all the facilities are near to them. If you're in the tent field you have to walk a "long" way to the toilet block which is very inconvenient with young children. The other thing about this site was you got eaten alive by the insect population. Not the best I'm afraid.
