General

  • Spacious pitches behind a family-run pub in the village of Cawood
  • Around half an hour's drive from York and Leeds
  • Dog-friendly pub with log fires, guest ales and home-cooked food

Darts, dominoes, log fires, guest ales, tasty food… sound like the kind of classic country pub you could while away a good few hours in? Then you’ll be among like-minded locals at The Castle Inn, a cracking pub in the North Yorkshire village of Cawood around 10 minutes' drive from Selby.

And it’s not just friendly locals guests will meet here: a warm welcome will also be had from the staff at this family-run pub, whether you’re just dropping in for a pint or settling in for a meal from the ever-changing menu of seasonal dishes. That coveted spot in front of the fire is just crying out to be occupied by a dozing dog, so feel free to bring a hound along with you too.

Once you’ve fed, watered and trounced the other half at darts, it’s a short toddle back to the peaceful pitches, all with plenty of room in which to spread out all kit for a comfy stay. No need to trawl back to the pub if you need the the essentials either – an accessible toilet and shower block is at the pitching area, along with electric hook-ups and facilities to deal with rubbish and chemical disposal.

And what of the hours before it’s time to hit the pub? Well, you might like to take a wander along the banks of the Ouse, which flows through the village, take day trips to York or Leeds or flex that credit card at one of the nearby shopping centres (fret not, there's a drink waiting when you’re done).

    They are currently in administration and our only on one day a week.

    Where do I start....

    I understand we had to pay for electricity but we had to guess the usage as the day we arrived was Saturday the only day the pub was open to get it and woulnt be open to get anyone untill next Saturday. Like I said to the lass behind the bar how are we supposed to know what we are going to use she understood what we was trying to say. So we bought a few cards in hope they would last us.
    There was no contact number to get any more if we need this this caused us unnecessary stress.

    The pub is not open or serving food anymore this needs to be update on pitchup.com.

    They have toilets and shower. They are not cleaned every day or stocked up with toiletries only on a Saturday once a week. We had to buy our own toilet roll. The showers are cold i tryed to report this but nothing was sorted. Very dirty moody floors. One toilet was blocked in the lady's toilets was like this the hole time we was there. So was only left with one working toilet.

    There is washing facilities but still no hot water.

    Lighting on the camp site. Their was none very dangerous when having to go to the toilet at night.

    It was so boggy on the grass where we had to park our car got stuck and had to be towed out.

    I wouldn't recommend this site to anyone.

    Looked lovely when booking, would never return! Went into the pub for a quiet drink and 2 of the locals was chatting saying how they thought the pub was shutting down, the other man turned and looked at us and said its probably because of the gypsies! Not a friendly site or clean

    The price of electricity was ridiculous! We had to keep topping up as it kept running out. £25 for 2 nights which most of the time we spent outside of the caravan!

    We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely return. Large hard standing serviced pitches and nice toilets and very quiet. Dani who manages the site couldn’t have been more helpful. We really liked the village. We visited a couple of the pubs and they were really nice, both 10 minutes walk away. The pub beside the campsite is closed at present but they hope to see it reopened soon. So thanks and hopefully we shall return soon. Ps it’s very easy access to M1 15 minutes and no access problem even with a fairly large caravan.

    Small pitch size, charged £5 a day to put a awning up but would have had to park the car in the awning to fit. If you've paid for a pitch why should you pay extra to put an awning on it. Inadequate facilities, only told the pub was no longer serving food the day before we travelled. To late to alter booking. The urinal in the toilets was blocked, told not really blocked just takes a long time to drain. Someone
    eventually put sign on it saying it was out of order. Complained the block was filthy, nothing done until the Sunday when part of the floor was mopped, but the sinks, the window ledges and the filthy chair in the shower were not touched.

Local attractions

A country pub this may be, but it’s one that’s most handily placed for urban outings. Head west for half an hour and you’ll hit the shops, theatres and sports venues of Leeds; take roughly the same length of journey north to get to York for visits to the minster, the Jorvik Viking Centre and the Yorkshire Railway Museum.

Dedicated followers of fashion will no doubt want to hone their skills at York Designer Outlet, Monks Cross or the Vangarde shopping park, all of which are within a half-hour drive. Kids with less enthusiasm for such pursuits (and grownups, for that matter) may well prefer the offerings of the Summit, 10 minutes away in Selby: climbing, bowling and a huge three-storey adventure playground are among the attractions at this indoor activity centre.

Diggerland theme park and the Xscape indoor snow centre are both less than half an hour away for those seeking more activity; quieter times can be had at Stillingfleet Lodge Gardens (10 minutes) or a stroll around Skipwith Common National Nature Reserve (20 minutes).

Must see

  • York Racecourse (7.8 miles)
  • Lotherton Hall & Gardens (8.0 miles)
  • Clifford's Tower (8.8 miles)

National Trust

  • Goddards Garden (7.6 miles)
  • Treasurer's House (9.3 miles)
