 We travel from N. Ireland every year to Rowantree caravan park

Best site we ever go to

A bit expensive for us but we save hard for it

We've never met such nice staff and they keep everything spotless

Just wish we were nearer

Thank you Frances ellison

 Site in excellent location for visiting York with good walks.

If visiting with a caravan most pitches are not easy to get into or out of due to hedges surrounding most pitches.

Nice flat site but no grass pitches due to frequent seasonal flooding.

 Always wanted to try this site, and what better time in the run up to Christmas. Site was nice and tidy and facilities kept spotless.

Lovely location in terms of walking into York, and as a result of the detour through the back gate, found a gem of a pub. The Swan Inn is a good old fashioned hostelry, no food, no music, no television (at least not when we visited twice), just beverages and people talking.

The roadworks diversion is easy to follow to the site, not sure what it would be like when dark though. As mentioned previously, WiFi is poor so could not stream iPlayer or Amazon prime in the evenings, only made worse by the fact there was a poor phone signal too, so couldn't stream from the phone either.

Digital TV signal was good though, so watched that. There were a couple of occasions (Fri and Sat) where someone was parked near the Site in late evening in their car playing very loud music which would reverberate around the campsite for about 90m. Once they departed, all was then quiet.

York Christmas Market is very good and a great atmosphere, and can get very busy at weekends. Nice to see the variety of stalls and street food on offer, lots of live street acts and places to visit (Jorvik Centre, Treasurers House etc) and some nice independent shops too

 Stayed for a gig and York stay. Good town centre site, Smallish pitches and mainly hardstanding.

Excellent facilities as usual from CAMC. Helpful staff.

Very handy for York, a 10 minute walk into the town.

Would have stayed longer but were evacuated due to flood warning!

 Our 1st stay at Beechwood Park and we will definitely be revisiting.

Lovely quiet well maintained site and the pitches are a great size we drove straight on didn't need to use the motor mover.

It was great that the shower & toilet were in the same cubicle, and they were lovely & clean.

Belly Buster takeaway delivers to the site and its only £10 by taxi into York Town.

We have already recommended Beechwood to several of our friends.

Reviewer: Smartstu 2 reviews from this member

 It's not much more than a glorified gravel car park. Not really one for sitting out in the evening watching the stars whilst the kids play!

The facilities are great - but it is very expensive for non members. I think we paid around £70!

We used it as a stop over - so we could visit the sights of York.

Obviously the main selling point of this site is the location - which is fantastic. It would be better if it was not for the current riverside closures for flood defenses (outside their control and they did were very helpful in this regard) b

Ut this part of town is great with shops, cafés, bakeries and a great Indian restaurant - all in walking distance.

 Well kept site with immaculate modern amenity blocks. The wardens are very friendly and clearly take great pride in their site, planting and maintaining pots & hanging baskets.

The site is adjacent to Rowntree park which is lovely to walk around, has tennis courts, table tennis, skateboarding and a play park.

The site is alongside the river Ouse, again lovely to walk or cycle along. You can even sit on benches built into the bridge over the river.

York itself is about a 15 minute walk, with York Minster being about 30 minutes. Local buses are electric and also run to the Outlet Mall.

 Excellent location with a 15 min walk into York city centre. There are a number of shops and restaurants around the corner to the site on the way into town. Can recommend the Indian restaurant, Lal Quila. Excellent food.

The site itself is very popular due to its location, so, not cheap, but you pay for the convenience of being able to walk into the city. Being motorhomers we generally try to stay on sites near to a village or town or with a bus service nearby so this was perfect for us.

The staff were friendly on arrival, didn't see many staff around and about afterwards but to be fair we were out every day. We were lucky to find a large pitch of the few remaining when we arrived. It was surrounded by hedges so even though the site felt very busy, we had a sense of some privacy. No shop on site but then, with shops nearby and the city within easy reach, its not necessary.

Facilities were clean with a 4 wristband allocation for use during Covid regulations. One person allowed into dishwashing area which is standard practice at the moment.

The only issue was that the facilities are closed from 10 till 12 for cleaning so they can get very busy before closing but during cleaning there is no emergency toilet available which other sites generally offer. I know there is the argument that we have our own on board facilities and we are in unusual times, however, there are occasions when guests may need them on site.

For a packed, busy site, it was generally much quieter than we expected.

We will definitely come back to this site.

We have visited York many times and most people know the usual tourist attractions available but I would like to recommend the Brew York and Tap Room off Walmgate. Great casual vibe with a great Korean/Japanese street food menu. We ended up there 3 lunchtimes out of 5 !

At present during Covid, you order food and drinks from your table after downloading the app on your phone. I'm sure they take orders for people without a smart phone.

 Our maiden voyage in our newly acquired motorhome.

We have never been camping or glamping or caravanning, so complete newbies we chose this site as a practice run, only just over a hour from home still in the beautiful county of Yorkshire so to travel the beautiful roads in our room with a view was amazing and to end up at the Rowntree site was definitely the right move.

Upon arrival immediately met by a chatty and happy gentleman who explained everything to us (twice lol lots to take in) he was a breath of fresh air if he isnt the owner then he needs promotion as he clearly loves the place -

Our peg and position was brilliant an immaculate spot, easy to manoeuvre round in the big old bus !

As first timers we obviously decided to “go big or go home” but York Rowntree could easily cater for us - we had a lovey walk round York literally a 5-10 min walk to the town centre, everything at the site was brill,

Amazing site and we will definitely be back
