Why stay here ...

Crockey Hill (York) caravan site is a peaceful site, only 10 minutes from the beautiful city of York and is perfect for a city break in a rural setting. The site is located on a large flat field with ample space for awnings, surrounded by mature trees and hedges. Our pitches offer electric hook ups. We are open all year round with good draining sandy land for the winter months.

We have a drinking water tap, a grey waste point and a disposal point and recycling facilities.

There is a bus stop adjacent to the site which is a main bus route into York. The buses run regularly 7 days a week  throughout the day and night so you can visit all of York’s many tourist attractions, with late buses on a Friday/Saturday night so you can enjoy the many bars and restaurants on offer.

McArthur Glen Designer Outlet is only a couple of minutes away with many shops and food outlets and is also home to the York Park & Ride.

For the cyclist there is easy access to Route 65/66 cycle track to York and beyond.

We are only a 10 minute drive from York Racecourse or alternatively you can walk or catch a bus from the city centre.

We have plenty of villages within a 1 – 3 mile radius with lovely local shops and pubs serving home cooked food. There is a farm shop just a 2 minute walk from the site.

This site is an excellent base for exploring the surrounding area with easy access to the East Coast, the North Yorkshire Moors and the Yorkshire Dales.

Ideal for visiting York

Used this site for our first visit to York. Easy access into the site. Ideally placed with a good regular bus service into York. We also cycled into York-partly on the main road and then we picked up the cycle lanes. Flat site with 12 pitches. We were there over a bank holiday and it wasn’t full. There is some traffic noise. Definitely use this site again.

New Well Laid Out Site With Good Access To York

Access to the site is easy, no narrow lanes,and a wide turning splay in. As a result there is some road noise from the adjacent lane but this is not continuous and should not put you off from coming. Like the previous reviewer we stayed in early August when there was a larger than expected occupancy of the site. Yes there are 12 bays but not all are used at any one time and it gives the owners flexibility and the ability to rest bays so that grass can regrow where it has suffered from die back due to groundsheets. As for the flames from the barbecue referred to by the earlier reviewer this is something they should have raised at the time with the members of the club using the barbecue we would have done. Access to York via the park and ride or via the normal bus service is exceptional. The site does not have a picturesque view across a Yorkshire valley or moor but it does have a very good access to York and the Aircraft Museum. The owners are very friendly and helpful and it is a site to which we would return.

To close for comfort

Was quite surprised at the amount of bays at this site,12 in all, we felt a bit hemmed in and there was only about 3ft between caravans in front,also got bit worried when campers next door had a barbecue going and flames were shooting up in the air they were both in the camper van.The field itself is fine owners have made a good job of waste water toilet waste, rubbish, all behind a fence which is good, road noise is audible during the week.Owners friendly and gave lots of information on arrival,lock in and out of gate a bit fiddly.We wouldn't stay again because we like a site which only has 5 units on,not 7 which was on when we visited.

Ideal for visiting York and surrounding area

The site is easy to find, just off the A64 and well signposted. Gina met us at the gate and gave us lots of information for visiting York plus some extra valuable information for our visit to York Racecourse for a concert we had booked. The site is flat and well laid out with your own sectioned off pitch. Water and bins etc behind a screen and solar lights at night time. There is a gate through to the adjacent road which is a short walk to the bus stop on the main road into York. We used the bus every day which is very frequent and takes about 15 mins. I would definitely recommend this site and will use it again if we come to York.

Perfect site for York & Surrounding Areas

We stayed for one night on Saturday 4th May as we had an event to go to in the centre of York. The location was perfect for this, with a bus stop available a few minutes walk from the site. Gina greeted us on arrival and was extremely helpful with an information pack and advice. The site is also probably the best laid out one we have been to, with extremely spacious pitches, sectioned out so there is no confusion. We will definitely be back, with our dog, and for longer next time, as there are lot of public footpaths nearby, and just a 30 minute stroll to the pub in Deighton.
