Why stay here ...

Our CL site is situated at the foot of the Yorkshire wolds which offer lots of beautiful scenery, walks, horse riding and cycling. The site is on a working farm so sadly adults only with two well behaved dogs a pitch. All pitches have 16amp electric hookup with hard standing all on level ground.

The market town of Pocklington is only a couple of miles away with its quaint square and Many eating venues. Burnby hall gardens are well worth a visit.

York is 18 miles and the coast within 19. Sledmere house, Castle Howard and the north York moors are all within easy reach.

Best CL Site we have stayed on ..................BUT !!

Martindale Farm Caravan Site
My wife and I have just returned home from a wonderful four-day break at Martindale Farm CL, which is perhaps the best CL we have had the pleasure to visit since starting caravanning in 2003.The site is easily accessed via a wide gate, preceded by excellent guidance to the site provided by the site owners, Sue and Alan, who are lovely helpful people, (I had an issue with my tow car which meant starting our stay later than planned - this was not a problem to them). The CL is well equipped with two toilet and shower rooms, which were kept spotlessly clean throughout our stay. Alongside these, were the fresh and grey water points, chemical disposal point and recycling facilities - all were well maintained and kept clean and tidy. This area is only a short walk from the level, gravelled pitches, (six in total),each with their own electric hook up point. Each pitch overlooks a shared well maintained large lawn with picnic benches and tables that overlook the CL's pond. The whole site shouted out, "We the owners care for our site, take pride in it and want our visitors to have a wonderful stay". When I leave reviews I like to be balanced and honest, and reserve the right to make negative comments as well as positive ones, when needed. So now, to the, 'BUT' indicated in my review title. The CL appears to be in two sections. A grassed area to the left of the access drive and then the area described above, to the right. Upon our arrival, the grassed area to the left had a large motorhome set up on pitch. On the right section were two caravans and a small motor home already 'pitched up'. This left us with a choice of three hardstanding pitches. We decided on the far corner pitch which was a large, quiet and private pitch surrounded by the border hedge with a backdrop of trees. Whilst setting up, three further caravans arrived. We were approached by one of the drivers who asked if we were leaving as the site seemed full. I explained we had only just arrived and this annoyed both the gentleman and I, due to this now making eight units on site rather than the permitted five units for a CL. This meant, none of the three new arrivals should have stayed, but they were allowed to do so. Day two saw one of the motorhomes leave, but seven units, (including ourselves), remained during our stay. This should NOT have been allowed and is the subject of my, 'BUT' and subsequent 'overall',downgrade. Five units maximum means just that and is one of the reasons why members choose to stay on a CL site. As I said before, this is a wonderful site, very well maintained, cared for, and spotlessly clean. Would I recommend a visit? Most definitely if you are happy that you may have more than the five units maximum supposedly allowed during your stay.

Great site, lovely owners

Martindale Farm Caravan Site
Thanks to Alan and Sue for a lovely week away staying on their site. Don't bother you at all, but they are there if you need anything. They obviously take pride in making sure everything looks nice. Everything was spotless, the loos and showers are great and have all things you need, including shower mat, hooks, somewhere to put your belongings, so appreciated. Very quiet site, yet close and easy access to Pocklington/York. The pond is perfect for sitting near to drink your morning cuppa or a glass of something nice in the evening. (and a welcome bottle of wine was much appreciated!) Will definitely be back before very long. Pam & Allan

Great CL!

Martindale Farm Caravan Site
Just returned from our 3rd visit to this lovely site. Nice flat spacious pitches, friendly owners, excellent facilities now include showers and toilets. Large lawned area and pond, dog walk, easy access from road. Located close to Pocklington with a good selection of shops. Definitely one of the best CL’s we have found.

Very well maintained site, helpful and friendly owners

Martindale Farm Caravan Site
This is a quite new site, opened 3 years ago, and has been set up by the owners Sue and Alan to the highest standards. All facilities are excellent (though we did not use the toilet and shower), and very adequate Covid-19 precautions have been put in place. Sue and Alan were friendly and welcoming, Sue visiting each of us and explaining payment methods, with bank transfer a feasible option. The site has been thoughtfully planned, with all 6 hardstandings (I'm not sure why 6 rather than 5) on one side, all facing out on a lovely grass area, very well mown with picnic tables and a pond. The only disadvantage of this arrangement was that the pitches felt rather close together, especially when the site was full at the weekend. Access to Pocklington, a pleasant characterful small town (though rapidly expanding with new housing developments) is about 2 miles along Burnby Lane, the downside here being the household waste site near the site, which brings a lot of traffic, sometimes queuing, and which has probably contributed to the poor road surface, very noticeable when cycling. Local places of interest, all very enjoyable, were all within 2 or 3 miles - Burnby Hall Gardens, the canal head, and the village of Nunburnholme on the Yorkshire Wolds Way footpath.

February visit to Martindale Farm CL

Martindale Farm Caravan Site
This CL is situated on the lane between Burnby and Pocklington, and is about 1 3/4 m!s from the A1079 between York and Market Weighton. Access is easy and the farm entrance is wide and clearly signposted. The site has 6 large, level H/S pitches and these are sheltered by tall trees, which means that the caravans are in the shade for much of the day. The water, waste and bins are adjacent to the stables but are quite a distance from the pitches. There is an area for walking ones dog but no other footpaths close to the site for a longer walk, and the lane does carry quite a lot of commuter traffic in the morning and evening. York is about 18 mls from the site, and there are other places of interest with easy driving distance. The owners were very helpful and loaned us leaflets for places to visit and for walks. Pocklington has both an Aldi and a Sainsburys, as well as a variety of other shops and hostelries. We had difficulty in tuning in the television to all the major stations and although there was supposed to be free WiFi we couldn't connect to it. At £15 pn we thought it to be rather expensive compared to other similar sites.
