Superb Site29/09/2019

    Booking was quick and easy. Communication from owners prior to arrival were first class. From the minute we arrived at the gate, we knew we had discovered a fantastic, go to site. The site is well laid out and immaculate. The pitch was large and had electric, water and drainage. The toilet facilities were always clean and there was plenty of hot water in the showers whenever we used them. The site was quiet and peaceful set in a rural location surrounded by fields but with a village about a mile away. Met by the owners who are super friendly and helpful. This will certainly be the first of many visits here for us as it is close enough as a bolt hole for a short trip away. Was very reasonably priced too. I am not sure if wifi was available or not as didnt need it. Next year this will become adults only and there will be no tents. Loved the astro turf section of the pitch which helps to keep the inside of the van cleaner.

    Site is excellent.
    Well thought out, peaceful. Lots of nice little touches that show the owners go above and beyond to cater for their guests. Pitches were nice and large with water and drainage provided for those with hose connections.

    Toilet and shower block was spotless. We loved the little touches and the dogs loved the dog wash.

    Can't wait to come back for longer next year.

    Nice flat pitch with plenty of room. Quiet. Very well organised site. Spotless facilities with loads of little extras like free dog showers, ice lollies that you pay for by use of a honesty box ( that was very welcome on a red hot bank holiday weekend). You pay for the electricity you use at your pitch rather than pay a set price for an EHU. Loads of poop bag dispensers all over the site was a good idea. The staff are very friendly and meet you at you pitch and give you information when you arrive.

    Lovely chilled campsite. Very clean and tidy, beautifully kept. Good size pitches

    Disliked: 

    Nowhere for the kids to run around. Although bikes and scooters were allowed, ball games were not. Needs an area for kids to play. Meant that we were away from the site most of the time to allow the kids to let off steam

From the manager...

Hello
Many thanks for your 10/10 review.
You are of course completely correct about our facilities for children, hopefully this didn't cause to much of a problem. We do however advertise our lack of facilities for children on our website.
Kind regards

    Absolutely loved this site, from the moment we arrived when the owners personally greeted us to the moment we left. Pitches were spacious and well laid out and we loved the astro turf to put the awning on. The toilets and showers were spotless and we thought that all the little extra touches such as ice creams and welcome packs were brilliant. It was a very peaceful quiet site, perfect for unwinding from our hectic lives. I would definitely go back again, but, I'm afraid we're going to have to wait till the kids are a little older as sadly (for us anyway) its going to adults only next year. Highly recommend.

    We very often say we will go back to a site but then never do. This was our second time at this wonderful gem of a site. My how it’s changed since last September. Our pitch was one of the new ones up on what used to be the rally field. The owners have thought of everything. Fully serviced pitch which was absolutely huge. Amazing toilets and showers. They even provide poop bags for the dog strategically placed around the site.

Local attractions

York’s an unmissable destination on any trip to the north of England: the city’s attractions include age-old structures like the minster as well as the new-fangled Jorvik Viking Centre that delves into the region’s Norse roots. For shopping, you can browse for bargains at boutiques set inside the old timber-framed buildings of The Shambles, an old street dating back to the 14th century.

Trainspotters may want to shunt themselves over to the National Railway Museum at York, a collection of carriages – including some used by Queen Victoria – that visitors can have a nosey at free of charge.

Chug along to Kirkham Abbey afterwards (40 minutes) for a wander around this riverside priory in the Derwent valley near the Yorkshire Wolds then have more alfresco explores at the open-air Yorkshire Sculpture Park gallery with work by British and international artists like Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth.
