Why stay here ...

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.

Can’t wait to go back

Hollytree Caravan Park
Booked this CL as a last minute night away, Louise was brilliant at booking and even offered an early arrival if the pitch was vacant. We wanted a site to be able to visit York by bus and with the bus stop a 5 minute walk away it was perfect. On site there is a hut with all the up to date bus timetables with a map to help. Also there are details of walks in the area and local eating places. The owners couldn’t do enough for you and we even managed a late check out. Dunnington is lovely with two pubs and the pizza place does amazing food. My tip would be have the owners number to hand on arrival as a call is required to be let onto the site as gate locked all the time so it’s super safe. We will be back ASAP .

Hollytree Caravan Park
This site has it all, perfect site with plenty of room in a great location. Dunnington is such a lovely village. Having been here before we knew what to expect and we were not dissappointed. Everything that other reviewers have said is true, and more. This site is immaculately kept and the water/waste etc., very well kept. Owners live on site so any problems give them a call, we didn't see them all weekend, no problem. Visited Bempton Cliffs, an RSPB Reserve, very interesting, especially if you like photography (and birds). Local mini supermarket has some lovely ready made home cooked meals - give them a try. Recommend the beef stroganoff. Will return again in the future.

Weekend At Hollytree

Hollytree Caravan Park
As we couldn't get in to the main club site in York we tried a couple of CL's near by, I'm so glad we did as we found this little gem. On arrival we were met by Louise who welcomed us and told us everything we needed to know while following SD rules, she then showed us to our pitch and left us to be with the knowledge we could call if we had any issues. The site is facilities were spot on with everything you need in a CL and spotlessly clean at that, as for Covid precautions I counted 5 dispensers for washing your hands so no issues there. The site was very tidy with plenty of space between the pitches, pitches are relatively flat so only required minimal levelling of the motorhome. As the site sits back off the main road it was very peaceful at night, there is a public path adjacent to the site but apart from a few dog walkers during the day it was quiet. The site is situated at the edge of the lovely village of Dunnington 4 miles from York, the village has a decent shop for groceries, a Pizza shop, cafe and pub/hotel. We visited the pub on Saturday evening for a few drinks and the locals were very welcoming. There is a bus stop at the end of the lane which takes you to York on a regular basis so no need to take the car into the city, also near by is a lovely nature reserve which is worth walking round. I would highly recommend this site for anyone visiting York.

A good little cl.

Hollytree Caravan Park
We stopped here for a few days travelling from Northumberland to Kent. Ideal location for us as we wanted to revisit York and also to go to Castle Howard which although expensive was well worth it. I recommend doing the audio tour which you access on an app on your phone. If you don’t have earphones they have them to buy for a £1 or so. We had a great burger meal at Bistro 10 in Stamford. Facilities all very new and clean on large pitch. A play park very nearby for children.

peaceful tranquil site

Hollytree Caravan Park
We have just spent 3 nights over May Bank Holiday at this site . A little gem of a site pitches are well spaced out grass pitches , which are well maintained with ehu , neat, tidy water and waste facilities The Cross Keys pub in Dunnington village will open May 17th which serves food. We took a walk to Hagg wood from the site and were delighted to see a carpet of bluebells throughout the wood. The site overall is a good base from which to explore York and surrounding attractions and we will certainly be revisiting this site again this year
