- 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.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

From the south: take the A1 and exit at Junction 45, joining the A64 to York/Scarborough. Drive for approximately 23 miles, going past York, then turn left, signposted Flaxton/Sheriff Hutton and at West Lilling turn left for Strensall. The site entrance is opposite the next junction.
From the north: take the A1, and exit at Junction 49, joining the A168 and take the second sign for Thirsk (A170 and A19). At the roundabout, take the third exit, signposted York on the A19, and take the second left (for Easingwold), then make a right, signposted Stillington. Here, turn right (heading towards York on the B1363), then take the first left for Sheriff Hutton and at the T-junction, turn left. You will find the site entrance 1 mile on left.
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...
