Date of Visit: October 2018 Unit:  Motorhome
Reviewer: Eycaravanner 28 reviews from this member

 We stayed here for one night, lovely friendly, helpful couple who own it, set in beautiful countryside, two gates to get through, one has a code which we were given before pitching, a few people who stay there are there for the fishing obviously, pretty lake next to the site and some caravan storage too.

Villages nearby a short drive with plenty of pubs and eating places. Wonderful York is close by with tons of things to do and see.

It was very cold the weekend we stayed and the 2 toilet and shower rooms are not heated, for this reason and the fact that it was all not cleaned, we decided against using the shower, you put 1 in a box if you use it.

I have to say that the toilet cassette emptying point is the worst I have ever come across in 20 years of using them, you have to climb up some metal steps and tip the contents into a large plastic container via a giant funnel, you can see all the contents then you have to get down the steps to turn on the tap for rinsing your cassette and down the steps to turn the tap off again.

It was not for us.

 Lovely quiet place. Owners are very welcoming and friendly. We stayed on a hard standing pitch with electric hook up for 7 nights. There is a large area to walk dogs, but if you have Jack Russells like us you definitely would not let them off their lead as they would be off trying to hunt the hares. Toilet/Shower block meets your needs, 1 for a shower which is very reasonable. Large fishing lake, lots of wild life to see. York town center is only approx 10 miles away, lovely shops and lots of different foods to taste. Would recommend a visit to the Yorkshire Air Museum where you can sit in WWII planes and look around the control room, lots of history, very interesting. York Maze was also close by, but due to the weather we didn't get to go. Would definitely visit again.

 Lovely little site. Owners very friendly and once they had settled you in left you to enjoy your weekend. Fishing lake available to use which was free - lots of little fish to catch but lots of weed. Site facilities - toilet and shower are adequate - showers 1 - honesty box. We took our dog with us and the site owners have made a dog walk around the perimeter of a field - can also walk dogs around the lake.

The site is close to the Pocklington Canal which we accessed at Melbourne which is a short drive from the site. We had a lovely walk along the canal here, there are also narrow boat rides on a weekend too from here.

Reviewer: Camelsoutback 20 reviews from this member

 Spent a delightful spring bank weekend with friends at this secluded site. Disturbed only by low flying birds and their spring time calls. The facilities are clean and well served but they charge a 1 for the shower, no grumble. Eden Camp is 45 mins drive away, well worth a visit as it is full of information. Elvington Air Museum, only 10 mins away. There are a lot of wild life parks. Selby Abbey is a lovely church, then just down the road is Howden, where Robert Thompson (House of Mouse) whose church is fitted out with his choir stalls etc, there are 30 mice to be found, hard enough finding 4.

Would we go back, definitely, not enough weekends left this year. Perhaps camp in the Autumn/Winter

 Just returned from a lovely peaceful weekend at this fab little site, very secure can leave things out, fishing on site hubby and son only caught little fish but that is not the owners fault! Son has ASD the quietness of the site was amazing and he loved it, a lot of regulars on site who were all very friendly and helpful. We didn't stray of the site because that's what we wanted but Sally and Peter had all bases covered for info and take outs. Site was clean and tidy, toilet with shower always lovely and warm and both Peter and Sally are around to make you feel happy and safe but never ever in your face which a child with ASD really appreciates (as do his parents). Many thanks for a lovely weekend we will definitely be returning x we have had to give child friendliness 5 out of 10 but that's not the sites fault there's a lot of water around which is particularly unguarded but the site is aimed at older families not tittle ones. For my child it was 12/10 for families with little ones remember your children are your responsibility x

 A very nice site, run by the owners, She was a real gem of a person, never in a week saw her with a sour face, always had a smile she really cares for her customers, not in your face but on hand if you need help, Nice and Quite site with wildlife for company, A big fishing pool for free, highly recommend if only to meet the owner. Its About 4 mile to York, there is a tight lane to the site but I got down easily with a 35 foot car and van, A big thank you to you both for a good week.

Reviewer: Salmong 20 reviews from this member

 I can only reiterate what others have posted previously.

We visited for the weekend and had a really relaxing time.

Owners very friendly and accommodating, pitches were all hard standing and were of a generous size, shower and toilet is a welcome addition, and both are clean and well looked after. There is also a large well stocked lake for all you anglers out there

The site is located about half a mile down a single track road off the B1228, very easy to find, and access is no problem - Situated very well for York, Selby, Howden there is plenty to do in the area, and I would definitely recommend Laytham Park for either a weekend break, or an extended stay.

There are some nice village pubs within a short drive - we had a meal at the Boot and Shoe in Ellerton - which was really good - homely village pub with friendly locals.

All in all a top site

 Our third year on this site, we liked it in 2012 and have been visiting on a regular basis since. The site is well managed and together they help to make this site the success it has become. Both are extremely helpful and friendly and we now consider them as friends. We regularly bring our grandchildren who thoroughly enjoy the freedom this site offers. Installing the toilet and shower has been an added bonus and will be even better when the second block has been completed.

Reviewer: Melmel74 28 reviews from this member

 Just back from a 4 night stay at this lovely site. It is a 'basic' site but we loved it! There is now a 'proper' toilet with a shower cubicle (like a shower you might have at home, not a push button type like at the swimming pool)which was immaculate. There are a further 3 portaloos nearer the camping field.

The tent field was a pleasure to camp on as the grass was well kept and short and the field coped well with the bit of rain we had on arrival. There are a few electric hook ups where some caravans were set up and it looked like they could accommodate large tents easily there as well.

We saw loads of stars whilst camped as there is virtually no light pollution and the site is away from main roads so was very quiet at night time.

There is an information hut and eggs available from the chickens who were roaming about near the house. There are also some horses which made a nice sight and I believe a fishing lake on site.

The owners are a lovely, friendly and welcoming couple.

This site epitomises everything we love about these small sites and we will likely go back again as have family in the area. It is a good base for exploring York and also the coast but with none of the irritations that staying closer might come with (road noise especially as we saw other sites very close to A roads whilst staying).
