It is peaceful, lovely surroundings by the water. Plenty of walks for our old English sheepdog. Showers were 1.00 a go but you got plenty of hot water for your money. Although this week the pub and cafe were only open from Friday 6pm and not midweek it is my understanding that this is soon to be rectified.

Phil the campsite manager, come barman, come anything he needs to be, is a wonderful polite pleasant happy man. Wendy the cook is an absolute marvel in the kitchen, nothing was too much trouble for her and her food was outstanding and again a very happy pleasant person.

Phil's dad is also a very happy pleasant man. All round an excellent bunch of people who run an excellent campsite. Will definitely be returning a few week-ends here and there.

This is a really relaxing site with only toilets and showers (1)there is a washing up sink next to the water tap but it is only cold. The field that we were on had 12 pitches all with views of the river. There is nowhere for kids to play.

The village is about a 10 min walk where there is a pub, York is about 20 mins away. You need to have any provisions with you as the nearest store is 10 miles away. The site does have a cafe but is only open at weekends (maybe longer in peak). You pay a 5 deposit for the fob to the toilet and showers which could have done with cleaning more. If you are camping at Linton you are allowed to fish for free

Myself, my husband and our small dog stayed on this site over the weekend- Friday night, Saturday night and into Sunday morning.

I found the site to be more than adequate and there seems to be a lot of improvements going on.

The bathrooms are basic but clean and they are in the process of being updated. The plans for the updated block appear to be very impressive and will move the toilet block standard to beyond par.

The site location is beautiful and just far enough away from the main roads and towns to make it quiet.

A trip into York took us no more that 10 minutes in the car and the local village including the shop is within walking distance.

There are a couple of dog walks which we didn't take advantage of but lots of people did.

The site has an old lock building which has been converted to include a small restaurant and bar with optional outside seating.

Dogs aren't allowed in to the site building, which isn't unusual, but if you're like us and don't like to leave the dog in the caravan then just ask them to do you some take away.

The staff were very friendly and helpful.

I have no doubt we will return during the fishing season for the sites excellent fishing facilities and during the fruit picking season as it is in close proximity to the strawberry fields in sessay.

Arrived for a 2 night stay over the august bank holiday weekend, on arriving the owner phil took us to our pitch a very helpful man and asked us if we wanted a hand moving our folding caravan into place.

There is a small licensed cafe/pub right next to the lock which on a summers night would be a lovely spot to have a drink and watch the sun go down, I dint eat in the cafe so I can't comment on the food.

The toilets are about 5 mins walk away and could do with upgrading it cost 60p for the showers.

The camping area was a little cramped together,good value for money only paid 42 pound for a 2 night stay and over a bank holiday I will return again maybe in a couple of years.

4 tents + gazebo at the beginning of August. Great location although the field we were in didn't have a lock view.

Toilet block is adequate, although there are plans to upgrade these.

On site Pub is right next to the lock so a great place to have a beer and watch the boating activity - you can even help with the lock operation if you're that way inclined. Snacks/meals were also available. Pub only has basic drinks selection and service is slow at busy times.

Staff are helpful, but keen for you not to drive your vehicle near to the marina.

Great walk into the nearby village of Newton with 2 great pubs (especially the Dawnay Arms - fantastic food). Also, worth a drive to the farm shop at Beningbrough Hall - on the edge of Newton but a long walk through the grounds.

Local shop in Linton has everything you need

Stayed here 5 times this year and still want to go back. Lovely small quiet site. Usually, the only noise you hear is the River Ouse flowing by. Phil the site owner is a helpful friendly guy. Cafe/Bar is pleasant, would recommend scampi and chips. Lovely this summer sat by the lock with a drink in one hand and a book in the other. Dogs are welcome. Shower/toilet block is basis, but there are plans to improve. Showers are 1 and you get plenty of time to shower and wash your hair

Nearest shop is about 3/4 mile away, it is approx 9 miles to York.

There is a bus stop outside the site that runs to York, it only seems to run every 2 hours.

I love this site hence returning so many times.
