General

  • Friendly site eight miles from York
  • Surrounded by a network of public footpaths
  • Well-equipped play area with zipwire and giant draughts

'All singing, all dancing' is what the friendly folk at York Meadows Caravan Park eight miles from the grand old centre of York say about their site, and after a quick perusal of the site facilities you'll likely fully agree.

The location here is pretty spesh too, tucked down a private lane near the village of Sheriff Hutton, close to York but also the Yorkshire coast, and surrounded by a network of public footpaths including the Ebor Way, Wold Way and Centenary Way. (If you fancy wandering further, ask the owners for their suggestions, as they're happy hikers of these parts.) Don't want to walk too far? Wander into the friendly village instead for the village shop and to investigate the two village pubs.

However. The York Meadows folk also point out that peeps might not want to leave the park at all... The play area is just grand, with swings, zipwire, a climbing frame and a slide, as well as outdoor table tennis, giant draughts, and snake and ladders; the reception shop sells all you might have forgotten such as bread and milk as well as burgers and bangers: yes, barbecues are allowed here...

Don't fancy cooking? Ring one of the local takeaways and get your dins delivered right to the site, or try a couple of the York Meadows's team's recommendations like the Highwayman Inn in Sheriff Hutton, selling homemade food using fresh local produce, or Thompsons Fish Restaurant and takeaway on Malton Road: anywhere that's won awards for its fish and chips might sound pretty grand to you too.

  • Liked: 

    What a smart well run site. A good friendly welcome, informative staff, well arranged site, good facilities with a very high standard of cleanliness and hygiene. Well situated for Castle Howard, Sutton Bank and the Howardian Hills with a multitude of walks, cycle routes and lots of activities locally. The site is currently being extended with what looks like a site of statics being appointed. No wifi at the moment as they have removed their mast to make way for the new site. Toilets and other facilities are top class. Good local pub with excellent food served daily.

    Disliked: 

    Currently no wifi but that is being addressed.

on the whole it is a nice site when dry. good children facilities. 03/10/2017

  • Liked: 

    nice location, quite quiet, i could see good amenities for children, good dog walk, although very wet and up the road from the body of the camp.

    Disliked: 

    Only 1 toilet/shower/bins/water waste disposal. Which if you were pitched at the very far end of the site was not good for the toilet/showers etc. especially when it has been raining and the ground is sodden.

    some of the pitches had hardstanding right to the road, which made access by car to the van cleaner. however, there were pitches where there was no hardstanding for access by car to the vans, so when wet the van could become extreemly muddy!!!!! and the ground by the vans a mud bath especially when you have a dog.!!!

  • Liked: 

    Site is very well laid out with plenty of room between pitches. A quiet site bit of a walk to the toilet,showers if you're further in.

    Disliked: 

    Some of the pitches don't have a solid run in. So when it's wet there's a possibility of getting stuck.

    Absolutely spotless site and facilities in beautiful setting, very friendly and helpful staff. Lovely playground for the little ones with football nets, table tennis, giant draughts and snakes & ladders, zip wires. Free hot showers, £1 for a hot bath. Small shop on site, utility room with washer, dryer, iron, microwave and 3 large sinks for dishes. 20 minutes walk to a lovely village with food pub, tearoom, shop, post office, cash withdrawn, etc. 25 minute drive to York.

    Disliked: 

    Crackers neighbours who thought 10:30pm and 7:30am were unsociable times to be talking in our tents, wifi was a bit of a nightmare from the tent field but forced the teenagers to communicate so all was not lost...

Local attractions

Sheriff Hutton is a pretty place to start when considering the countryside around .York Meadows Caravan Park. And then one must go Yorkwards, to the splendid city with York Minster, cobbled streets, scenic old buildings, York Dungeon, York Railway Museum, the Castle Museum and the Jorvik Viking Centre. Spend an afternoon/day among the market, shops, cafés, restaurants and pubs of the Shambles, the teeny streets that are among the most snapped shots of York.

Monks Cross Shopping Centre on the outskirts of York sells designer gear for those who want it, and Clifton Moor nearby has more shops, a cinema and a bowling complex as well as restaurants, takeaways and pubs.

Plenty of indoor options are around if the weather decides to be a tad inconsiderate: you could look for a play centre like Wacky Warehouse, Creepy Crawlies, The Farmers Cart and Play Dale Farm, or take the tour at Yorks Chocolate Story; yes, tastings are included... Bigger parks like Flamingo Land and Lightwater Valley are in the area too.

Golf? Greens surrounding the park include Sandburn Hall (with other activities too), York Golf Club, Fulford Golf Club, Easingwold Golf Club and Ampleforth Golf Club. Fishing? Also popular in these parts: cast off locally at Pottery Pond, Birkdale Farm, and Brickyard Farm Lakes.

And of course as it's Yorkshire, there are also piles of abbeys, castles, stately homes, historic houses and museums to visit – without even mentioning the moors or the Yorkshire coast...

Must see

  • The Arboretum - Kew at Castle Howard (5.4 miles)
