Why stay here ...

We are located at the edge of the peaceful conservation village of Foston on the Wolds. The 0.75 acre lawned paddock is surrounded by trees and hedges, and overlooks paddocks and open fields providing an ideal location for a quiet and relaxing stay. Half of the paddock has been reinforced with a mesh matting to provide a grassed firm all weather surface. The site is well provided with 10amp electric hook-ups giving a free choice of where to set up your pitch. TV reception is also good.

We are in easy access to the coast, countryside and local attractions; well positioned to explore the sites of Yorkshire including:

  • the historic towns of Beverley and York
  • the seaside resorts of Bridlington, Hornsea, Scarborough , Filey, Robins Hoods Bay and Whitby
  • the RSPB bird sanctuary at Bempton Cliffs
  • the Stately Homes and Gardens of Burton Agnes, Sledmere and Castle Howard

Although the village itself has no shop or pub, there are local shops and newsagents, several pubs and restaurants (including a Chinese restaurant and fish and chip shop), a butcher, vet and doctor's surgery readily available in the surrounding villages, with supermarkets in Driffield, Hornsea and Bridlington (Morrisons, Tesco, Lidl, Audi, etc.) a short drive away.

Dogs are welcome on the site, but owners are asked to respect other site users and keep their pets under control at all times and clean up after them. There are several walks around the village and local lanes for exercising, but again we ask owners to keep the area clean - unfortunately not all the locals are as considerate, but we don't want the site to get a reputation.

As Club members and keen users of CLs ourselves, we appreciate and enjoy the peace and quiet from staying on CLs. We therefore aim to provide a site which we would like to stay at ourselves.

Open Easter to end of October.

What a welcome!

Our first ever experience of caravanning. Couldn't have picked a better place. Our host Dusty welcomed us on site and stayed with us giving invaluable advice on parking up, levelling the van and connecting up. Said that if we needed any more advice or help, just to knock and ask. Lovely peaceful site, our future experiences will have a lot to live up to.

The Old Plough - Beautifully kept site

Lovely peaceful site in the pretty village of Foston on the Wolds. Immaculately kept by the present owners. Lovely to watch the alpacas. Ideal cycling country - quiet country roads and not too hilly! Thoroughly recommended. Will certainly be back!

Peace and Tranquillity

We have been caravanning on CLs for many years and we've found many good sites, a few not so good, and award winning sites that haven't been as good as others have obviously thought. This site hasn't won any awards but believe you me, it most certainly should have. The owners are very friendly but not in your face! They take a real pride in their CL which is immaculate. The site is spacious, you can choose your own pitch, the grass is cut short and is absolutely flat. Like other reviewers have said it is so peaceful, no road noise all you hear is the birds and the bells, which aren't too noise. There are NO Showers and No Toilets which makes it just the perfect CL for us! Will we be back, YES bet your life we will, just peace and Tranquillity and oh yes the Alpacas which are worth seeing!

Lovely site run by lovely people

Recently spent two weeks on site although meant to be one. Day after arriving I was taken by ambulance into hull hospital an hour away to spend a week as inpatient leaving my wife on her own on site.

We cannot thank the Coulams and their parents enough for their kindness ensuring all was ok and keeping an eye out. We were lucky enough to be able to stay another week on my return and the peace and tranquility was just what the dr ordered along with watching the entertainment provided by the family's alpacas.

Thank you again. We will definitely be back and can't recommend the old plough enough if you're looking for an immaculate site with friendly relaxed owners and a place to truly kick back and relax.

Lovely and tranquil

Met on arrival by owners and given choice of pitch. Only 2 others on site so we were well spaced out. A very well kept CL within a private location and so peaceful.. just what we wanted as a late dash after work as we are local to the area and just need to get away and relax. The owner is very friendly and came for a chat and check all was ok. Would recommend for a peaceful location and away from it all. We will return again without hesitation.
