Why stay here ...

Lovely little caravan site for 4 units only situated close to the city, yet near to the sea and the countryside!

Willow Lodge Caravan Park is easy to find on the A165 Hull to Bridlington road, just two miles from the city of Kingston Upon Hull with lots of shops, cinemas and a waterfront. At the same time, the caravan park is also only a few miles from the East coast and the lovely towns of Bridlington, Hornsea and Withernsea. Go inland a few miles and you'll find the historic town of Beverley, market town of Driffield, and slightly further afield, the more famous city of York.

The caravan park has five caravan pitches and sits within a family owned and run garden centre, offering a rather unique set of onsite facilities including a gift shop, antiques centre, traditional sweet shop, aquatic centre, plants and of course, a cafe. With a family friendly public house just minutes walk away, you can easily while away a few hours here and keep everyone entertained.

perfect to visit City of Culture

The closest we could find for visiting Hull, If you just want a hook up and a secure, clean and well laid out site, then this is the site for you, The bus can be flagged down immediately outside the site, one per hour. A really good hotel and restaurant next door with good food pleasantly served , and access to the garden centre during opening hours. Hull City of culture is a must, surprised by how much there is to see, don't miss the tour round the last remaining fishing trawler, worth more than one visit,

Seniors Sample Skirlaugh in Spring- II. (The sequel).

We were the other half of 'Cookandriver' so won't repeat all here, just endorse their good review. I will add that we were warned that the site may be noisy when we phoned to book - but did so anyway because we wanted to be near to Hull. We were also given good directions for booking in at the Garden Centre. On arrival, the staff could not have been more helpful. Yes, this site can be noisy during the day but this is offset by the good access to Hull and surrounding area, especially via the Trans Pennine Trail. Tranquil it's not but the rural views are quite a surprise so near to a large City conurbation.

Seniors Sample Skirlaugh in Spring.

This site suited us very well as we were visiting a student granddaughter in Hull. We also had bicycles with us and the proximity of the excellent Trans Pennine Trail was a great bonus. We cycled east to Hornsea one day and to The Deep at Hull on another day. Each about 7 miles away along a flat, easy trail. The availability of all meals at either The Gardeners Pub next door or the garden centre adjacent to the site was also very useful! We had an excellent, freshly cooked breakfast [open at 8am] and an evening meal at the pub and the garden centre was good for coffee and cakes! We also appreciated the 10% discount at the garden centre that was offered with our booking. The site is very well laid out with all 5 pitches spacious and hardstanding. There is electricity but no wi fi - this is feely available at the pub. There is a chemical emptying point and waste water is disposed of in the customary CL fashion - water the trees and plants! The site is adjacent to a busy road, so day-time noise is inevitable. Security is good with locked gates. We were four seniors in our party [2 motorvans] and we had a great short break and will no doubt return with another food parcel for the student!

Noisy

Probably the least tranquil site we have ever visited. Positioned between the garden centre car park and a pub, the CL is less than 100 yds from the busy A165 which remains busy during the day. Quite well laid out, with generous hard standings a good CDP and recycling facilities. There is, however, no grey water disposal unless you follow the instructions given,which were to tip grey water down the knee high CDP. Not really practical for either a MH or a caravan wastemaster. Be aware that the site requires a full 50% of fees deposit at the time of booking and that the arrival instuctions given, i.e. to head towards the Gardners Country Inn and towards a gate on the left are of little use as this gate is permanently locked. The way into the CL is via the garden centre car park then to turn immediate right via the overflow car park. The permanently locked gate, as above, provides a means of exit for caravanners during the hours when the garden centre is closed. During our stay, we were unfortunate in that building work started in the adjacent car park. A JCB digger and a dumper truck spent the entire day digging holes and trenches and moving earth during working hours. No prior warning of this was given either at the time of booking or the time of arrival. It became so bad that in the end we left a day early.

Lovely CL

We visited this lovely CL earlier this month, and were most impressed with it.  It is very well laid out, with spacious pitches which get sun (if there is any!) most of the day.  Very well maintained it has the benefit of being next to a garden centre with gift shop, antiques centres, sweet shops, curiosity shops, aquatic centre and cafe.  The local pub is only two minutes walk away, and serves delicious food at reasonable prices. Beverley, York and the coast are within easy reach, as is Hull with its museums and the Deep. We will definitely be returning here - just a note, don't rely on your sat nav when using the postcode - it takes you beyond the site if coming from Hull, or if coming from Beverley, it stops you short.
