 This is a great site apart from there being three pitches which are overlooked, (about ten metres from the vans) by a huge sewage plant that is constantly flushing and gurgling, and at times very smelly. It beggars belief that anyone would consider placing pitches in such a location, where the outdoor experience is nothing but grim.

A great shame that such an otherwise lovely site is spoilt by these three isolated pitches.

 Fabulous and enthusiastic reception by owners, whom had only been running it for around 8 days.

Very helpful.

Site was quiet, even though quite full.

Full apple tree on site, provided 1 of your 5 a day.

Good facilities

 Came last year for anniversary(45) weather was really hot not able to walk dog but so restful & quiet. So we came back this year and again had a really hot day, peace & quiet.

Lovely little site, very friendly but must remember to carry our CCC cards to show we are entitled to the Age concession. Luckily it wasn't an issue. Customer service relaxed and friendly.

Toilets and showers clean and well kept, even though very busy had no problems getting a shower. No noise all very friendly. Will come again. Excellent hot water for washing dishes.

Great pub in village and excellent walking lanes.

 Peaceful yet busy site at the time of our visit during term time June.

The facilities were clean but the site is next to sewage works so there can be unpleasant smells according to wind direction.

Pub and small shop in village. Nothing for children on site and dogs to be walked off site.

Enjoyed the peace and quiet of our 2 night stay.

 Very quiet site on the edge of a really pretty village (merits a morning walking around, go in the church, find the ruined castle, see a real maypole). Rural views. Dog walks off site - across the road & along the old railway, or up the road a bit & along the bridle way.

We don't recognise the washrooms from the critical comments in earlier reviews - if these are tired & jaded, with the jolly red doors & spotless tiles, powerful hot showers & roomy modesty cubicles, then there's no pleasing people. Only 3 showers, but no queues on a 3/4 full site.

We would criticise the total absence of recycling. No excuse these days, surely.

We would also criticise the C&CC handbook map which cheerfully states that yes! you can drive your caravan though the gates on southerly approach through the castle Howard estate. Our MH is modest in size, but got through with only inches to spare - be wary if your MH is tall & boxy.

We would come back again as there are so many houses & gardens to visit, and walks to do. Don't miss the cake shop beside the site - it's an honesty box; the fruit cakes are sold at castle Howard (but cost less here. )

 Good site conveniently positioned for a lot of the Yorkshire attractions Eden Camp at Malton is not to be missed we spent 5 hours in there, also the North York Moors railway.

Site wardens were very friendly and helpful, site facilities were warm and clean if a little dated.

WIFI is very good.

Reviewer: Lindilou2013 32 reviews from this member

 It just goes to show how much other campsite users can affect your experience of a site as our bank holiday weekend was a visit of two halves.

The first couple of nights were awful. Loud voices, don't people realise that when they are under canvas their voices can be heard? Shouty conversations at 6am don't appeal to me.

Then there were the dog owners who felt that a 60 second walk to a perfectly decent dog walk was way too far for their dogs and so the rules didn't apply to them. I intensely dislike dog owners who allow their pets off the leash on site and then don't bother cleaning up the mess! Second half of the stay, as the site emptied out after the bank holiday weekend was quiet and peaceful.

This is not a site for fantastic views. Its situation means there aren't any. It's a small site and it feels a little overcrowded. It is also in need of refurbishment and not just the toilet block, which although clean is very dated with definite signs of having seen better days but the ground lights around the camp held together with tape and so on.

Cannot fault the welcome nor the friendliness of the site wardens nor the maintenance of the flower beds etc. Enjoyed watching the swallows fledge and the evenings were filled with bats!

Perfect site for getting out and about all over the North Yorks Moors. Slingsby village is lovely and the local hostelry is good too but do book in advance for meals, it's a small place.

We shall return because there is so much to do in the area but with the hope that the CCC spend a little money on the site.

 A nice quiet site conveniently situated for Pickering, Malton and National Trust Properties and other locations. One frustrating attribute of this site were the incredibly hard hard standings and grass pitches. I bent a number of really tough steel pegs and rendered my rubber mallet pretty useless. I was not alone as we watched new arrivals suffer similar issues. A pneumatic drill may help but I can honestly say I've not come across anything as hard as this anywhere! Personally I think that the facilities in the men's toilet block were rather inadequate for the number of pitches on the site. Only 3 flushing toilets, 3 showers but a multitude of washing cubicles and lastly 1 rather small toilet hand wash basin but at least the 1 hand dryer worked ok unlike many others I've encountered which switch off before you can dry half of your smallest finger. All said and done, the toilet block was kept very clean by the on site staff who were all amiable folks!

Reviewer: Highlander09 17 reviews from this member

 A small site very convenient for all the best that Yorkshire can offer. However this site is in dire need of complete renovation as all the facilities are dated and looking shabby. For example; dirty grout on the walls and floors, pipework has corrosion which has been there for a few years now. The toilet block has a drainage smell possibly because the urinals don't flush enough.

We have stayed here a few years but this will be our last visit until we read in the magazine that money has been spent here.

Reviewer: Nomadyane 6 reviews from this member

 Chose this site for a two-night stay on my circuitous way back to London from the Lake District, intending to visit Castle Howard. However, the day started very wet so I drove to York instead, used their brilliant Park+Ride and had a good day in Old York and the Railway Museum. I understand that Castle Howard is really worthwhile only when you can enjoy the gardens as well as the inside. This is a small and very tidy site, not scenic in location, but level and in a pretty village. It was very clean and well organised and the (relief) warden was very helpful and friendly as were the users I talked to.
