Looking over the Ouse towards Selby

General

  • Peaceful site on a 60-acre farm on the banks of the River Ouse
  • A 20-minute drive or 40-minute quiet bike ride from York
  • Three great village pubs within a 10-minute drive

A rural riverside stay on the banks of the Ouse – ooh, yes please… North Yorkshire site Hales Hill Park has a splendid 650 metres of river frontage as part of its 60-acre farm seven miles from York.

With that waterside setting comes a fine spot in which to settle for a bit of birdwatching or coarse fishing (seek permission from the owners before getting your kit in place), or just to set up a deckchair, pour a drink and admire some classic country views.

There’s easy access to public footpaths and bike trails too if you’d like to get out and survey your surrounds – stick to the rural lanes or pedal over to the National Cycle Network Route 65 to get up to York in 40 minutes or so (or drive it in 20 minutes if you’re a tad wobbly on two wheels).

Sixty acres gives the owners plenty of space to play with, so they’ve kindly allocated a decent chunk of it to their guests – which means scope for kids to play games, for dogs to bound around and for folk to safely set up barbecues or campfires for alfresco evenings. Rather than encroach on the peaceful space, the team here have kept facilities simple, just installing showers, toilets and an area for dealing with rubbish and waste disposal.

North Yorkshire not treating you to alfresco eating weather? Take your pick from any of the three country pubs within a 10-minute drive – the folk here give thumbs up to each and every one of them.

Please note

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

    Nice views, easy to find and not to far from York. Great for kids to run around and the play park was lovely.

    Disliked: 

    Toilets weren’t very clean.
    The night we stayed there was a massive disturbance between two families staying on the site and unfortunately this affecting our stay massively. Kept us awake and wasn’t nice for our child to see or hear, this is no fault of the owners which we do understand.

    A beautiful hidden gem. A peaceful campsite nestled in stunning surroundings. Improvements are planned to the site amenities which are clean and functional. Lovely covered pot wash area, hot powerful shower, well kept pitches with hook up, and helpful staff ready to go out of their way even when we arrived late in the evening. The children enjoyed so much safe space to play, and enjoyed playing on the park as much as making tree forts and exploring the surrounding countryside. Lovely walks along the river Ouse, as well as the dog walking areas on the farmland. We enjoyed making marshmellows on the fire pit at night. Belle and Ted were lovely hosts who handle everything with calm efficiency and a smile. Looking forward to another adventure here.

    The area was rural and peaceful, located at the side of the river ooze. The space available was plenty for tent pitches and for the children to play/families to play. There is a park on site for the children to walk to. The campsite is located about 15-20 mins from York centre and 15mins away from the designer outlet. A five min drive you will also find a local co-op if you need any last minute bits.

    There is also a shower and toilets on site including waste facilities.

    Really rate this place and will definitely be visiting again.

    Loved the relaxed atmosphere and how accommodating belle was for putting us all together as we were staying as a large group and away from the river as we had young children. Nothing was a problem. It was our first time staying at the site but would definitely stay again and would recommend to anyone who wants to get back to basics in the country

    Just one shower amongst all the campers. Had to queue, particularly in the mornings which was not the end of the world but quite inconvenient.

Thank you very much for your review and feedback.
We will be putting in more showers for the 2020 season.

Local attractions

You’ll be wanting a trip to York, yes? Or perhaps several, given how much there is to see and do around the place, and the fact that it’s only a 20-minute drive away. Start by getting to grips with the area’s history by taking a walk around the old city walls, visiting the castle and minster and checking out the exhibits at the Jorvik Viking Centre and Yorkshire Museum.

Those fascinated by things that move will certainly want to make a stop at the city’s excellent National Railway Museum; sweet-toothed types will no doubt find themselves drawn more to the tempting aromas that waft out of York’s Chocolate Story. And when it's time for a pint? It’s said there are 365 pubs within the city walls…

Take a break from city wandering with a day out cheering on the gee-gees at York Racecourse (15 minutes’ drive), admiring the landscaping at Stillingfleet Lodge Gardens (25 minutes) or meeting the menagerie at Askham Bryan Wildlife & Conservation Park (15 minutes).

Must see
