Level site with spotlessly clean toilet/shower block. Washing up facilities(free), washing machine, drier, iron and board and microwave (all at reasonable charges). The warden is very helpful and there is a small but well stocked shop on site. There is a child's play park and a small football pitch.

We could hear the traffic on the nearby road but it wasn't constant or too loud.

Level walk along the road to nearest village with pub, Post Office/shop, coffee house, church and castle ruins.

We found the campsite to be a good base for travelling to York where we visited Train Museum (free), York Minster and Jorvic Centre. We also walked some of the city walls. Elsewhere in the area is Fountain's Abbey and Studley Royal Water Garden and children would like Brimham Rocks (all National Trust).

Just returned from a 4 night stay over the bank holiday weekend, this was our first visit to this site and we can't recommend this site enough. Toilets immaculate even at 9am on a BHW, plenty of space around each pitch and everyone we spoke to were very pleasant. There's a football area for kids to play inc netted goals, zip wire, swings, table tennis and plenty more. This site is almost up there with a best of British site, keep up the excellent work !

We have just got back from a 4 night stay at York Meadows and I don't have a bad word to say about it. The site is very well maintained and the staff are friendly and helpful. The toilet block is spotless and the showers are free and are lovely and hot and kept very clean. There is a also a disabled and family room which we found very helpful to bathe our toddlers. You do need to pay £1 for hot water to run a bath, but it was worth it to not have to juggle them in the shower. The park has lots to do for the children and is situated between the camping field and the touring pitches, so is within easy reach from all areas of the site. It is a short 5 minute drive to the nearby village of Strensall where we were leaving the car (no parking restrictions on the road) and catching the number 5/5A bus into York. The nearby pizza place delivers onto site. Overall we had a wonderful stay and would definitely recommend to families.

Plus points, it's close to York, good toilets and showers, although there were queues in a morning. Pizza delivery was good, pitches were spacious.

Bad points were basically pricing. £23. 50 per night not too bad, but then £2. 50 per night extra for an awning??! There were no non awning pitches available by the way. Then my neighbour on pitch had a tent. He had to pay £26 to pitch his tent, he didn't need electric, but had to pay for it, then, as he'd brought his son along, he had to pay an extra £3 per night, £29 per night in total, for a tent! with no EHU used!

Totally unacceptable pricing regime, we won't be going again, neither will my tenting neighbour.

First time visit to York Meadows and we will not be back. Booked a Super Pitch and facilities are great with clean toilets and a well stocked shop. Wardens very welcoming but that where the enjoyable weekend stops.

The play area was situated 30 yards from our caravan and has a open and closing sign saying opens at 9am and closes at dusk or 10pm. On Saturday morning children were screaming and shouting in the play area at 6. 30 am and this continued most of the day till well past 10 pm. Parents just left their children run riot and no checks were performed by the wardens. Children were running in between my caravan and my car, rolling underneath the car and using the taps on unused service pitches. Otherwise a total nightmare.

If you want a quiet, relaxing weekend, do not come to York Meadows especially the Super Pitch area. After upgrading and paying more for a super pitch I wish I had never bothered as we

Were continually tortured by kids and the parents walked within a couple of feet of our van even though we had no caravan within 30 feet of us.

I have given 10 out of 10 for child friendliness as kids can do what they want and when they want with no supervision at all.

Just returned from another fantastic visit. Cannot fault the toilets pitches wardens all 1st class. Looking forward to our next trip. There are a lot of seasonal campers on but they are very friendly. Kids aged 14 and 13 love this site. Close to shopping outlets and york centre. Chip wagon visits on a sat night at reasonable prices also pizza shop do deliveries to the site.

We have just returned from a weekend at York Meadows.

Good site excellent facilities.

Shop adequate. Lady in shop very helpful even copying pages of map for us as we had forgotten ours.

Ideal site for touring York and surrounding areas. Brilliant bus service from the next village buses into centre of York every ten minutes

Reviewer: Blueclouduk 10 reviews from this member

Booked 4 nights on a grass pitch here, we went for a grass pitch as we wanted to try out a new lightweight awning without sacrificing too many tent pegs. It's just along the road from a C&CC site which we've also stayed at in the past.

We knew that we would arrive after the office closed (5pm) but it didn't phase the lady that took our booking. A map was left stuck to the inside of the office door showing the layout of the site.

Most of the pitches are double width hard standing and, unusually, set at an angle to the track around the site. The only reason that I can think of for the owners of the site to use this layout is that it makes reversing on to a pitch much easier.

There are plenty of service points for fresh and grey water around but just one CDP near the entrance. I was a little disappointed by this lack of CDP provision as there are two large statics at the far end of the site that have 'mains' sewerage and thought that a CDP wouldn't be too difficult to add on.

A small play park between the caravan and tent fields provides a welcome distraction for younger campers although the usual problem of children leaving their bikes on the road nearby can make entry and egress when towing a slow affair.

There is a small shop on site selling essentials and goodies for smaller visitors. The nearest convenience shops are a little too far away for a comfortable walk.

Local RAF stations are used for training pilots and an occasional bonus can be had when the young airmen and women are practising aerobatics and 'dogfighting'.

York, and it's myriad of attractions, is only only 20-30 minutes drive away. The position of the site lends itself very well to using the Park & Ride service based on the north side of the city. Parking in the city centre is very limited and tightly controlled. During the summer season, there is a maize maze near Easingwold (about 20 minutes drive) which provides plenty of activities and a good, fun day out.

All-in-all a good site needing only a couple of tweaks to make it pretty much perfect.

Used this site for a family get together. Excellent pitch sizes on even ground, well maintained by warden and staff. Good facilities for children with playground and football nets.

Showers and toilets were always clean with plenty of hot water. Potwash and laundry facilities included in the amenity building were kept in the same condition.

Small shop on site with last minute essentials. Wi-Fi available at a charge through PayPal which was easy to purchase and set up (even for me). Good location for York about 15 minute drive. Plenty of pubs in the area and also pizza delivery to site if cooking isn't your thing!.

Partner site at Helmsley is said to be of equal standard so check that one out too.

Would return in the future.

Just returned from a 5 day break at York Meadows, what a site, large pitches, very clean toilets and showers with plenty of hot water, wardens very helpful and great location.

Been to York Meadows 3 times this year and left unit a couple of times during the week for family to use following weekend.
