Why stay here ...

Hollytree Caravan Park is a new small family run caravan/motorhome certificated location and is located 4 miles east from York City Centre in the quiet, peaceful, friendly village of Dunnington (winners of village in bloom).   

The Village offers a Co-op (with post office), newsagents, fast food takeaway with delivery service, The Old Butchers Cafe, Pattercakes Bakery, chemist, beauty and hair salon and 2 public houses - The Cross keys and Twine and Barrel, both serving lunches and evening meals and both have beer gardens. The Cross Keys also has a play area for children, all within a short walk away.  We are sorry to say that we are not able to accept dogs at Hollytree.

Scrap Box Fish and Chip shop is located on the A1079, just minutes away. The sports club which also serves evening meals and has occasional evening entertainment, large children play park and sports field is adjacent to the site.

There is a bus service which runs every 30 minutes into the historic city of York. There are many places to visit in York including the world renowned York Minster, the famous Roman Wall which you can walk all the way around York City Centre, the National Railway Museum which is situated near the City Centre plus York Castle Museum, Viking Centre, York Dungeon, many pubs and restaurants, a market, the famous York Racecourse and many other attractions.

Dunnington also offers an alternative bus route which runs through the village to the East Coast. The route 66 cycle path runs past the entrance to Hollytree Caravan Park. Dunnington also has ancient woodland and a nature reserve which offers beautiful walks and wildlife.

Hollytree Caravan Park is set in a peaceful and quiet setting but is also an ideal location for visiting the National Park, coastal resorts, Scarborough, Bridlington, Whitby, Filey and many other attractions North Yorkshire has to offer.

Lovely site for North Yorkshire

So good we went back a week later. I know it's a saying overused, but what a gem. Well kept, easy access via private lane, security gate, all the facilities, info shed, just a joy to stay at. Lovely owners who deserve to succeed. I would suggest checking google maps as I found an easier way (sorry my sat nav found an easier way) to leave the site and on our second visit we used it to access the site. Fantastic area for exploring (Castle Howard, Nunnington Hall, the whole of North Yorkshire, particularly Malton was a gem). Lovely village and walk from site. Will return many times in the future. No Dogs.

Bank holiday weekend

This place is a gem, the pitches are huge and level . Very peaceful and the owners John and Louise are lovely. Dunnington village is a five minute walk away. We used the Scrap Box on Friday night (highly recommended local chippy). We had breakfast in the Old Butchers Coffee Shop which was delicious on Saturday and Sunday lunch in the Cross Keys (also delicious). Over all a far better than expected weekend. 5/5 we shall return, many thanks Lynne and Tony

Relaxing CL.

Have just spent a relaxing 6 night break at this new CL near York. Route directions were perfect, good signage on entry. Louise meet us at the gate and explained everything on site in detail. Well spaced out between pitches, and it is kept clean and tidy. Sanitization stations around the amenities area, and cleaned every day. Plenty of places too visit. We did the Hagg Wood walk, which takes you through some beautiful countryside, and back too site. Village is only a 15min walk, very oldy worldy type of Yorkshire village. Will be putting this CL on our go back list. Well done Louise & John.

Relaxing stay at new CL

We have just spent 3 nights at this new Cl which opened on 4th July and we will definitely be going back. Louise was there to welcome us on arrival and we were given the gate code and the access code for the information hut. Louise had allocated 2 very spacious pitches for us and the friends that we were meeting up with.There is EHU at every pitch and a water tap which he easily accessible for all pitches. The village is only a short walk away and has a pub and village store as well as a range of other small shops. There was an excellent fish and chips shop a short drive away on the A1079. There is also a good local bus service in to York and out towards the east coast in the other direction. The site is only about an hour away from home so ideal for a quick few days away without too much travelling. Thanks again to Louise and John and good luck with your new venture

New and Inviting CL

A new CL listed in the club magazine that fortuitously dropped through the letterbox whilst we were trying to book a few days as C19 lockdown eases. We were apparently, the second booking for this newly created CL and welcomed by Louise on arrival. They have obviously put a lot of thought in to their new venture and we would recommend a visit here. It is easily accessible and level. Information cabin, drinking water, waste water and chemical disposal all well set out and hand sanitisers located at appropriate points. Good for walks straight from the site and for cyclists it’s located directly on Route 66, Way of the Roses cycle path. Can cycle the few miles into York mostly traffic free or catch the local bus. Under normal (C19 free) circumstances there are plenty of places to visit within easy striking distance. Thanks for a lovely few days.
