Flaxton Meadows: Hardstanding Pitch with water and electric (photo added by manager on 01/08/2023)

General

  • Spacious adults-only Yorkshire site with easy access from the A64
  • A 20-minute drive from central York and 45 minutes from the coast
  • Eco-friendly site with nature trail and nest box webcams

Gorgeous North Yorkshire countryside all around, handy access to the A64 and York a mere 20 minutes’ drive down the road… there’s no denying Flaxton Meadows is in a very fine setting indeed.

And it’s a good mix of rural views too – this is a site that’s got farmland on one side and the wildlife-packed Strensall Common heathland on the other. And that means plenty of options for cyclists and walkers, whether you’re into strolling on local paths or tackling longer outings on the likes of the Ebor Way or Yorkshire Wolds Way.

Don’t know where to start? The team on site are on hand to offer advice. As well as day trips to York, they also frequently recommend outings to Castle Howard, Flamingo Land and the Scarborough (and they keep plenty of ideas on hand for family wet-weather days out too… just in case).

Being rather proud of their area, the owners here have put in a lot of effort to make their place eco friendly, kitting it out with renewable energy sources, establishing wildlife areas and using sustainable building materials where possible. A kids’ nature trail and educational boards help guests to get to know the area and nest-box webcams give everyone the chance to get a closer look at what’s rustling in the trees.

    What a beautiful site with helpful staff.
    Pitches are fairly flat and a good size with a good amount of grass at the back that can be called your own.
    Amazing landscape with a proper dog walk - unlike some sites that say they have one and in fact it’s about 100 yards long only. The grass was cut most days and it’s all very well maintained.
    Toilets are 5*, spotless, heated and luxurious
    Very relaxed bar with comfortable seating and affordable drinks
    It’s a couple of miles drive into the nearest town with good local services, pubs etc and a couple of enclosed dog fields if you search on line.

    Disliked: 

    It was very difficult to get pegs into the hard standing pitch. As a woman alone, I could not have done this myself.
    This is a moan not a complaint- the black ash roads are a nightmare when it’s raining as there are pot holes which quickly fill up with slurry. I have a dog and walking around quickly lead to a her being very dirty. This lead to lots of rubbing of paws and a dirty awning with much work after walks.
    Perhaps a tarmac road would be more practical.
    Not the fault of the site but something to beware of - The road to the site is hazardous as locals drive at ridiculous speeds in excess of 60mph and cut the corners. We got hit by a van driver and the wing mirror was broken.
    Again not a complaint but something to be aware of - The army training camp is around 2 miles away and shooting can be heard throughout the week.

From the manager...

Thank you Alison for taking the time to leave a review. We hope you enjoyed your stay with us.

We note the comments you have made. We would love you to come and visit again, and would ask that on arrival you mention to one of our Campsite Rangers you need help with your pegs and we will be happy to help.

We do have a dog wash to the rear of the facilities block which is free to use, and hopefully will prevent muddy paws in your awning.

Unfortunately the army training camp shooting is beyond our control but I believe this is only one or two days a week.

We hope these things haven't put you off visiting us again as we would love to welcome you back to Flaxton Meadows in the new season.

    Train warning horn sounds multiple times a day from early morning to late at night.

From the manager...

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We hope you enjoyed your stay with us.

We note your comments regarding the train warning sounds but unfortunately this is beyond our control. I believe this is the Scarborough line with a train running hourly.

We hope this didn't spoil you stay too much, and hope you will visit again.

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Starting your explores of the local area is as simple as wandering next door to Strensall Common, managed by the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust and with plenty of paths to wander along (some of them accessible to pushchairs and wheelchairs). Piglets Adventure Farm (10 minutes’ drive) is a good bet if the kids are keen to see bigger animals.

York (20 minutes) is a must, of course – for history at the Jorvik Viking Centre, walks along the old walls and visits to the National Railway Museum. For more on the heritage front, next stops should certainly be Castle Howard (15 minutes), Nunnington Hall (25 minutes) and Rievaulx Abbey (35 minutes).

Kids not into such things? Try Flamingo Land (25 minutes) or the Go Ape adventure park at Dalby Forest (35 minutes). And there’s always the prospect of a trip to the coast at Filey (45 minutes) or Scarborough (50 minutes)…

Can’t make your mind up? The team here has assembled a collection of podcasts to give you a flavour of some of the options and help you make your decisions.
