Perfectly acceptable site but......

The Fox and Rabbit Inn
We stayed for two nights over Easter and the site was fine but I thought the site had fully serviced pitches ( one of the reasons why I booked it ).You pay on arrival in the pub and the woman who took my money confirmed that the pitches are fully serviced but they are not. There is one tap at one end of the site - the pitch we were on was the furthest from it ! - but that is not a reason for not going to the site. It appears that there is a lot of confusion because there are two CLs called Fox and Rabbit. The one we stayed on is called Fox and Rabbit Inn which incidentally does not come up on the Club's website. If you search for Fox and Rabbit on the Club website, a site called Fox and Rabbit Holiday Cottages and Motorhome CL comes up which says that it does have fully serviced pitches and is at the same general location but owned by somebody different to the one we stayed at. I did not find out exactly where this other one is but I think it was in a field to the south of the site we stayed at. Anyway, if you go to the Fox and Rabbit Inn CL's website - foxandrabbit.co.uk - you will find a link there to the Club's website with all the details for the Inn site but you cannot find that by looking on the Club's website ! I do not understand why and I have raised it with the Club so hopefully the Club will sort it out. I would endorse the good points about the site made by others, especially the access from the site to open countryside, although it would have been nice if there had been a gate in the south east corner of the site onto the public footpath which runs from the pub past the site and into the vastness of Dalby Forest. I ended up lifting my dog over the fence and climbing over it to walk along the public footpath, instead of walking all the way back to the pub to get onto the path and then having to walk past the site to get to the point where I climbed over. A previous review complained about the state of the toilet disposal facility but it was fine while we were there. Another review referred to noise from a nearby "industrial site" which I think must be a barn associated with the adjacent farm. We did not hear a lot of noise from there - bearing in mind that you have to expect agricultural machinery working in the countryside, we did not find it objectionable. Although there is a lot of traffic on the A169 past the pub, we found that the CL was far enough away from the road for the traffic noise to not affect our enjoyment of the site.

Excellent for the Many Places of Interest

The Fox and Rabbit Inn
Visited Fox & Rabbit Inn site 1st - 8th August 2020 Excellent site with easy access and welcoming staff. Good food in the dog friendly pub. Hard standings are good with easy access to water points refuse area and chemical disposal point. Many places of interest are within easy drive, Nice site for our dog too. I would have given 5 stars but for the grass needing cutting and the noise to early evening from the adjacent industrial site. Peter & Veronica Caravanner from Kent

Dirty Elsan point full of human faeces Reported - no action taken

The Fox and Rabbit Inn
I am sure this is a better site come the summer dry months but in winter is very messy on the entrance and sadly you have to walk through puddles to open the entrance gate. Hard standing was not bad. The Elsan point was disgusting and reported by us but NOT sorted or even looked at for that matter. It seems it is a well know problem at this site and had been reported the week previous. It was over flowing with human faeces, solid excrement. WE will not return.

Good site, good food friendly staff.

The Fox and Rabbit Inn
This was a last minute booking for us as we had made others plans which were cancelled last minute. Despite our initial disappointment we decided we would try here with it only being a short 70 mile drive from home. What a gem of a CL Site. It’s the second field in and you still get road noise but we weren’t disturbed by it at all. The pub has a good menu and we ate there twice in our 4 night stay. Big thank you to the staff for their warmth of welcome and service. The pitches are well spaced and level, with trees to make a wind break, so even on windy days it wasn’t to bad. Lots to do if your walkers and cyclists we walked in to Dal y Forest from the site and spent our days walking amongst the spruce trees. If you like Scarborough and Whitby are far and there lots to see and do if you wish. All in all a 5* CL.

Good Location

Good location for Pickering, Gothland , Whitby and the North Yorkshire Moors National Park. Some road noise especially at weekends. Great pub serving excellent food and dogs are welcome in the bar area.
