 This is a fantastic site with fishing for my hubby,

It is flat hardstanding pitch with grass, all well kept

The facilities are lovely and clean, washing machine and tumble dryer if needed and to top it off the site wardens are really lovely and friendly people

Six bells pub near to site was closed when we visited

Thanks for a great stay

 Stayed at this campsite for 2 nights

The wardens are very nice and friendly but there’s a lot of sited vans so very clicky

The previous warden is still on the site and decided he could tell my husband off while he was fishing which didn’t go down too well as he’s 57 years of age and been fishing in matchers since he was 11. The new owner Craig did come over and apologised.

It advertises that there’s free Wi-Fi but you can’t get on it and also the tv reception is shocking.

Then early hour of Sunday morning someone was walking about pinching bits off other caravans

 Been a year since last visit wow new toilets and showers have to be the best I have been in still a lovely little site, had a super pitch and great to be next to the pond. Yes trains could be heard but didn’t trouble us.

Very friendly wardens who gave us all advice needed. Can’t wait for next visit with the fishing rods on board

Local supermarket within easy reach plenty shopping in York easily accessible. Loved our stay

 Lovely site with everything needed all amenities open very clean.

Very helpful wardens fishing on site and local shops.

Value for money and handy for York shopping.

Nice local walk onto the common and the local shops, Small Tesco, couple of pubs that we didn’t use.

We have been here before and will definitely be back again.

 Me and my wife have been to this site on numerous occasions. We both love the place, and have made many friends.

The site is very clean and tidy, and has everything you could wish for in a caravan site.

David and Carolyn work very hard to keep the site up to spec.

I would recommend anyone to try moorside as you will not be disappointed. Unless your one of the idiots who criticise the site because the lake is down on its depth and a bit of algie here and there. Obviously can't fish !

Reviewer: Pamedav38 12 reviews from this member

 This owners of this site obviously make sufficient income from the seasonal vans, the storage, the fishing and the occasional tourer, enough to pay the 2 hardworking wardens, but not enough to warrant any changes or upgrades to the caravan site or the website overall.

Covid safe, motorhome (or only) waterpoint - very long hose required to fill and buckets required to collect grey water. A simple dog poo bin alongside the 'gate' to the common, would be useful.

Saying this it's clean and tidy and peaceful, and reasonably priced. However remember the website is out of date.

Reviewer: Trukerman 1 review from this member

 Visited this site on numerous occasions. Love the place the wardens work extremely hard keeping everything just right. The bank holiday bbq was a great event with regulars and first time visitors all joining in the fun and Jim the chef doing an excellent job. The fishing is ok but the water is very green a small investment in a couple of bales of barley hay would so on clear this up. Dave and Carolyn work extremely hard to tend to ur needs but alas you always get some folk that go out of their way to be awkward, mainly a pair of campervans that want super pitch service for 3 * prices. Overall a fantastic site with fantastic wardens can't wait for our next visit
