Restaurant

General

  • Spacious pitches behind a family-run pub in the village of Cawood
  • Around half an hour's drive from York and Leeds
  • Dog-friendly pub with log fires, guest ales and home-cooked food

Darts, dominoes, log fires, guest ales, tasty food… sound like the kind of classic country pub you could while away a good few hours in? Then you’ll be among like-minded locals at The Castle Inn, a cracking pub in the North Yorkshire village of Cawood around 10 minutes' drive from Selby.

And it’s not just friendly locals guests will meet here: a warm welcome will also be had from the staff at this family-run pub, whether you’re just dropping in for a pint or settling in for a meal from the ever-changing menu of seasonal dishes. That coveted spot in front of the fire is just crying out to be occupied by a dozing dog, so feel free to bring a hound along with you too. (Please note the pub is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.)

Once you’ve fed, watered and trounced the other half at darts, it’s a short toddle back to the peaceful pitches, all with plenty of room in which to spread out all kit for a comfy stay. No need to trawl back to the pub if you need the the essentials either – an accessible toilet and shower block is at the pitching area, along with electric hook-ups and facilities to deal with rubbish and chemical disposal.

And what of the hours before it’s time to hit the pub? Well, you might like to take a wander along the banks of the Ouse, which flows through the village, take day trips to York or Leeds or flex that credit card at one of the nearby shopping centres (fret not, there's a drink waiting when you’re done).

Bookings must not be for more than 21 consecutive nights.

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

    Lovely little campsite. Plenty of walks around the area including a park not far away for the kids to play. Beer was lovely

    Disliked: 

    Food was abit over priced for the portion size you received and wasn't the best tasting either. One spare rib I had was meatless and the other was plain and tasteless

Local attractions

A country pub this may be, but it’s one that’s most handily placed for urban outings. Head west for half an hour and you’ll hit the shops, theatres and sports venues of Leeds; take roughly the same length of journey north to get to York for visits to the minster, the Jorvik Viking Centre and the Yorkshire Railway Museum.

Dedicated followers of fashion will no doubt want to hone their skills at York Designer Outlet, Monks Cross or the Vangarde shopping park, all of which are within a half-hour drive. Kids with less enthusiasm for such pursuits (and grownups, for that matter) may well prefer the offerings of the Summit, 10 minutes away in Selby: climbing, bowling and a huge three-storey adventure playground are among the attractions at this indoor activity centre.

Diggerland theme park and the Xscape indoor snow centre are both less than half an hour away for those seeking more activity; quieter times can be had at Stillingfleet Lodge Gardens (10 minutes) or a stroll around Skipwith Common National Nature Reserve (20 minutes).

Must see

  • York Racecourse (7.8 miles)
  • Lotherton Hall & Gardens (8.0 miles)
  • Clifford's Tower (8.8 miles)

National Trust

  • Goddards Garden (7.6 miles)
  • Treasurer's House (9.3 miles)
