After a long drive from Bristol, the owner Barbara met us at the gate, showed us our pitch, gave us some information and left us to set up. We were travelling with our friends and were able to pitch next to each other very close to the edge of the lake.
This is an adult only site, 7 miles from York, you can easily spend a few days exploring this lovely city.
Park and Ride runs from the designer shopping centre, just up the road into the city centre. We used this to avoid negotiating the one way system, adult return ticket was £2. 80, buses run every 15 minutes, great value.
There is a huge car boot sale at the racecourse on Saturday mornings.
The village is a 10 minute walk away, there is a well stocked shop for every thing you might need.
There is a pub, that has live music on Saturdays and a quiz night on Wednesdays.
The whole site is well maintained and the lake is beautiful and kept the husbands entertained for hours fishing. You have the option of buying a weekly or daily fishing ticket, reduced price for campers.
On site facilities are kept immaculate separate showers with plenty of hot water and toilets and also a good washing up area. Local Information is kept in here. There is also a book/magazine swap bookcase – great idea.
This site is perfect for a relaxing break and for anyone who fishes. It’s a beautiful site in a great location.
Barbara and Geoff are very friendly and work hard to keep the site well maintained.
