 Lovely peaceful site with huge pitch for the tent.

Great drainage and level ground.

Plenty of toilets and good showers with enough space to dress.

Very friendly and helpful staff.

Really nice relaxed feel and slept brilliantly every night.

Great for visiting York and the county.

 Being a ‘Tranquil site’ we expected peace but we’re very disappointed, the noise from the traffic on the busy road right next to the site is quite bad, and whilst we were there there was music playing VERY loudly from somewhere nearby, maybe a large party or some gathering.

The main problem however are the facilities, only 4 showers for each of the male and female guests which are the tiniest showers I have ever used, although they are clean, you cannot move around in them and there is no where to get dressed without getting all your clothing wet, it was also very difficult to regulate the temperature of the water.

We were pitched in what seemed to be a spare field for mainly tents, and the grass obviously hadn’t been cut for weeks. At £39 per night it was extremely disappointing and we will not be returning.

 Nice site close to river Ouse. Bus stop outside every 2 hours Monday to Saturday no bus Sunday or bank holidays. However there is a river boat from the lock to York on Saturday and Sunday.

Fully serviced pitches are close to the road and suffer from some traffic noise. Could be worse though.

Washroom blocks are a bit dated but there is some promise of an upgrade at some point. They were clean though.

Good dog walk, on site and a circular walk towards Naburn off site. There seems to be little actual river path on this side to walk along.

The local pub, The Blacksmiths Arms was ok, but we only went for a drink.

 Excellent friendly, helpful staff.

Large tidy pitches.

Spotlessly clean facilities.

Lovely shop stocked with good produce was a bonus.

There were a lot of dogs!

 We enjoyed our stay from the minute we arrived.

What wasn’t to like

The pitches are a good size and easily accessible

The facilities were spotless

The walk to the River Taxi at the lock is a leisurely one although could be better signed

On visit the local we were made very welcome

Will certainly be visiting this site again

Reviewer: Blinkie 65 reviews from this member

 Brilliant owners as asked if it would be possible for friends to be on an adjacent pitch and that was sorted. We arrived as the floods were apparent and the river Ouse was very high. And during our stay went down to the locks each day to marvel at the different water levels.

As it was the day the Christmas markets started in York the site was very busy but as usual the site was very clean and the facilities block clean and after the first night was very warm. We had planned to go into Selby but in the end went for a walk instead, plenty of places to explore locally.

The bus stop is right outside the site.

The on site shop is very well stocked with all the esentialls and had some christmas goodies. Mulled wine and mince pies on first night.

We were here in September and will return.

 Perfect location right near the lock and river.

Easy to get into York town centre by bus or go to the park and ride just 2 miles away.

Very friendly and helpful staff.

Well maintained facilities.

Good dog walking area to let the dogs have a run.

Highly recommended

 Well what a site. A very warm welcome from Andrea who told us what we needed to know. We filled up with water on way to pitch. The pitch was hardstanding and very flat. Good amount of grass at the rear and habitation door side.

The site is adults only and a quiet time between 23. 00 and 07. 00 hours. The facilities are very clean and for once there was shelves in the shower cubicle in the accessible room. A very well stocked shop.

We walked down to Naburn Lock and had tea and cake at The Tea by the Lock. We also caught the Water taxi into York and caught an Uber back.

Good amount of bird life a few owls in the evening and even a pair of bats were watched flying around at the rear of our pitch. Plus 7 kingfishers seen on our water taxi journey.

We would certainly return.

 I liked being greeted on arrival and shown to my pitch. Plenty of space between pitches.

The site is level, the grass cut short. Adult only site. Quiet between 11pm & 7 am. T

Oilet block, showers and washing up area very clean. There's a well stocked shop on site selling food, drink & some camping essentials. There's a bus stop immediately outside the camp site with the No. 42 bus route connecting York & Selby.

This service doesn't run on a Sunday but the river bus from Naburn lock to York and back does. Check website for tickets and timings.

There is a pub in Naburn that does food, 15 minutes walk each way.

 Very clean toilets and showers, but you can’t swing a cat in the shower cubicle!

Also the water blasts very hot very quickly while using the shower. The staff are all very friendly and helpful.

The ehu tent pitch we stayed on was very lumpy with quite a few holes

I would not describe it as a grass pitch more like a dirt pitch. Lots of barking dogs with very noisy owners, so would not describe it as tranquil!
