Flaxton Meadows: Pond on site

General

  • Spacious rural North 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, or point you towards other activities including golf, pony trekking and hot air ballooning. 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.

    Friendly atmosphere with a focus on an enjoyable stay for all campers. The owner was friendly and affable, hands on and keen to engage and ensure you were attended to with the utmost regard. He stopped a group of rowdy young men from entering the site to ensure campers continued to have a peaceful experience. The toilet and shower facilities were the best I have ever experienced.

    Disliked: 

    Major issue for me was the newness of it all. Whilst there was a bar, it may have been nice to have had a little shop with a few essential camping provisions.

  • Liked: 

    The caravan pitches are all of good size and a few are the fully service pitches. The shower/toilet block looked new and was kept in very clean condition. We didn't use the bar but this looked to be busy and had plenty of seating outside. The washing up area was good and there was always plenty of hot water. The staff were on hand throughout the day and always acknowledged you in passing. The site still looks relatively new and has had numerous small trees planted that I think will look good as they mature.

    Disliked: 

    The camping area to be honest looked a bit of a free for all, maybe this was due to being a school holiday week and the first real chance people had to get away.

Directions


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.

Must see
