General

  • Peaceful and spacious park in the Vale of York
  • Nine miles from York via the White Rose cycle route
  • A short stroll from the village of Alne

Picture yourself in a quintessentially English scene, basking with a drink to the pleasing thunk of leather hitting willow as you gaze out over the village cricket green, followed by a relaxing stroll through gorgeous sun-dappled woods and water meadows bursting with wild flowers...

Alders Caravan Park is on a working farm surrounded by idyllic countryside, ideal for woodland walks and wildlife spotting. This serene, roomy park has excellent facilities and its own small shop, and it’s a mere stroll to other commerces, a restaurant, tennis courts and a playground in the comely village of Alne, in the heart of the Vale of York.

  • Liked: 

    We love the lay out of the site. Really large individual pitches with plenty open space. Showers and toilets spotless. Really nice having a full shower room to yourself with wash hand basin and toilet. Never experienced any queuing. Staff are so friendly and helpful from checking in and out to the couple who are always around tidying etc and so willing to help.
    A bonus having the local cricket club beside the site. Most enjoyable on a warm Summers day sitting enjoying a drink and watching a game. Very relaxing.

    The site never feels crowded and is very peaceful.

    Alne is lovely Yorkshire village and very close to Easingwold which has everything you would need including a first class butcher and baker as well as lovely coffee shops and pubs.

    Have really fallen in love with this site and we will be regular visitors.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing whatsoever anyone could dislike about the Alders.

From the manager...

Wow, Ian, this is very kind and we will try to make your next stay as good as the last.
