 We really enjoy every minute

Will definitely be back

So close to shops, to York itself we walked it was that close.

Really quiet apart from when our alarm went off which we apologise for

Would recommend this site to everyone thank you 🙏

Shower block very clean

 The pitch we had has to be the largest Iíve ever had on any campsite. The pitch was flat, well looked after, and all pitches are fully serviced.

The facilities were spotless and Covid secure. Not only were there toilets and showers, there were 8 shower rooms too. Being an adults site, even though it was full it was quiet.

Bus stop right outside entry to site, £7. 60 return for two adults to York. Walk to the Hopgrove arms can be a little dodgy as only half the route has a pavement and cars tend to go quite fast on this stretch of road.

All in all an excellent campsite.

 Great location and easy access.

Brilliant showers and toilet kept spotless. Bus stop just over the road.

Staff are great and friendly. Nice quite adult only site.

 First time visiting this site, very easy to get to, very well laid out, the warden was very helpful with information and offered to loan us an extension for our aquaroll hook up.

The showers are rooms with toilet & wash basin very large and very clean, wifi is included in the price which is very reasonable for the close location to York.

The bus stop is outside the entrance, 1 way to York & Leeds the other to the coast, £3. 90 return to York.

Will be a regular site for us now.

Reviewer: Aniseedvan 1 review from this member

 This is a site more suited to caravans and motorhomes. The owners are very nice and we received a warm welcome. The pitches are generous in size and bounded by privacy hedges.

The bathrooms are a generous size, but for a 5* site I would have expected better hairdryers than the ones provided (those small always on tubes for want of a better description).

The pitch caused us to have problems, thereís an all weather mat running centrally down the pitch, and trying to pitch a 4 man tent around this was horrendous, for two seasoned campers using rock Pegs! Electricity and water points were easily accessible.

Having the bus stop right outside was great, the owners were very helpful with times and then the best taxi service when there was an accident and the buses were delayed! 20 min bus ride, every half an hour during except sundays (every hour).

Beautifully quiet at night, as youíd expect from an adults site. Some road noise from the main road further up, but nothing too onerous.

So, a nice site, but the lack of simple shop provisions (milk, bread) and some of the touches in the bathrooms, pitch makes it an OK site rather than a stellar one - for campers based on the price.

 A wonderful site, well situated to visit York, the North York Moors and even the coast. There was nowhere to walk from the site but the buses stopped directly outside.

Positives: Enormous pitches all separated by a variety of hedges. Helpful staff, lovely lake and mature trees. Immaculate grass, all hard standings, own water on pitch.

Could be improved: very small dog walk and it wasnít gated, but it was quite adequate if you donít want to let dogs run off the lead.

We were on pitch 2 and in the hot weather there was a definite pong from the septic tank just behind the hedge in hot weather. The shop didnít even sell basics, not even milk, though it was permanently staffed during the day.

 We found this site a bit too crammed in, we were on pitch 55 and just felt "surrounded" Low numbered pitches have much more space, and would have been much better.

Surrounding area was very busy, lots of nose to tail traffic.

Bus service into York City Centre very good.

 Stayed at this site for six nights, quiet but ideal location to visit York and a number of seaside resorts

The site itself was well kept, clean and the staff were very friendly. The shower block was unbelievable, the room inside the shower cubicle was bigger than some people kitchens, seriously and spotless as well. There was a dog walk a bit on the small side, could do with it being made a little bigger.

This was a adults only site, never stayed on one before, would definitely return to this site if ever visiting this area of the country. Unfortunately there was no on site shop which would have been nice, for things like bread, milk and beans but the was a Asda about a 10 minute drive away.

 2 adults, Sterling elite caravan on fully serviced pitch

Arrived in the dark after 5 hour journey from Liverpool-chaos on the m62! Had phoned ahead so instructions for entry were emailed to us. Security barrier fob exactly where we told and easy to find. Lighting on the park not really adequate to see to pitch so abandoned our efforts and used the motor mover sooner than usual.

Pitches lovely and level, lots of green space and careful planting. Shower block very very clean despite the wet and gloomy weather. Buses from outside the site as said before kept perfectly to time, even late at night.

York packed as usual for this time of year but still managed to shop at Betty's. Lots of cafes / restaurants / pubs to suit every taste. We had meal at the ivy which was expensive but well presented and delicious. Didn't try the local Toby carvery but car park full so obviously very popular.

Site very quiet -never heard a peep after about 9. 30. Would gladly stay here again if in the area

 First time at this site. Quickly checked in, £10 deposit for barrier key which you get back on leaving the site. Very large pitches with grass surrounds, & own water supply & waste water drain, so take long tubing from van to drain. There is a dog walk but we don't have a dog.

Very large individual toilet/shower rooms + additional toilets & showers, very clean, hubby went to toilet at 7:30am one morning & guy was in there cleaning them already. This is a very popular site, think most weekends are fully booked so if you are wanting to go for a weekend book early, we went Sunday to Friday but by Thursday the site was getting full again as they have storage facilities & was bringing vans out onto available pitches.

Adults only so very quiet site. Bus stop outside site which is the coast liner bus, goes to York/Leeds one way, or Malton, Pickering/Scarborough & Whitby the other, and if like us you have a concession ticket free to all these places.

We walked to the Toby Carvery pub from the site, about half a mile there just a few hundred yards from the gate to the sign post across the field, so take care as no path, just a grass verge to the signpost.

The Hopgrove pub is getting a refit but still serving meals which was good. One day we walked the Solar System (planets walk) from York Askham Bar Park & Ride to Ricall 6. 4 miles, then caught the bus from Ricall every 15 minutes back into York, then caught the Park & Ride Bus (no 3) over road to the Tower back to Askham Bar where our car was parked.

We just showed our passes & it didn't cost us any money which we were expecting to have to pay, so parked up all day for free. There is a big Tesco next to the Park & Ride so we stocked up on a few things. There is The National Trusts - Treasurer's House in York nr the Minster.

In the summer months it would be nice to catch the bus & go to say Whitby for the day, not having to drive just sit back & relax, then the bus drops you back outside the caravan park. We enjoyed our stay, going to Pocklington another day in the car (free car parking there) then lunch in The Feathers pub with a warm fire to greet us.

The coast liner bus runs hourly on a Sunday, every 30 mins through the week.
