Lovely, well maintained CL, Excellent for York.

Primrose Bank
We spent 7 peaceful nights at this site in July. The site was immaculate and our hosts Sue & Terry were very pleasant. Great access for York & surrounding villages. There is a lovely 7 mile circular walk from Kexby along the River Derwent to Stamford Bridge and back. The gardens and nursery, whilst not open every day, are a delight to wander around. Thanks to Sue & Terry.

Lovely site, well maintained and peaceful stay. Great location.

Primrose Bank
Our stay at Primrose Bank was just what we needed. Easy to find, great communication with Sue and Terry who gave clear and simple instructions on arrival. We were welcomed in and directed to a lovely flat pitch, the site is very well looked after. Great location, Park and Ride to York was very close to site. Lovely pub within a few miles to eat, also very welcoming. Visit to Malton food festival was great and within a short car drive. All in all a very quite, peaceful and welcoming site in a beautiful part of Yorkshire. Thank you, we will most definitely return soon. Mr and Mrs Smith

Like camping next to a building site...

Primrose Bank

Building noise from the land opposite went on till nearly 10 at night - a JCB digging plus continuous vehicle reversing noises. Happened two days running - we almost packed up and left early. Thankfully it didn't continue on our final two days. The owner knew this was going on - we brought it up when we left but she seemed unwilling to try and do anything about it e.g. report as a noise nuisance to local council. The field itself is well-maintained but has an enormous pylon in one corner. We weren't offered access to the gardens or nursery as mentioned in other reviews. They were closed throughout our visit. Site is convenient for visiting York, Castle Howard etc but we would try and find a more peaceful location if we come to this area again. Found the list of rules that were emailed and the fact that electricity use is restricted to 10 units a day a little off-putting (although we used only a fraction of that amount during our stay, it's not something you really want to have to be thinking about. Also the departure time - other CLs we've stayed on have been much more relaxed about this. They clearly wanted us out by 11 on the dot and were literally mowing the grass around us.

Comment from the CL Owner

I’m sorry you were unhappy with so many elements of your visit and have hopefully addressed them below.
The one off work across the road was on an adjoining farm at their fishing ponds and at their busy time of year was unfortunate to run into the evening and coincide with this visitors arrival. Although our house is near the CL we knew nothing about it until informed when the guests were leaving.

One off farm work in daylight doesn’t justify reporting to the council as a noise nuisance. The pylon is not on our property and the Garden and Nursery opening times are well publicised, and the Nursery was open on the last two days of the visit. We always offer late leaving when possible but we weren’t asked on this occasion and as we were full for the bank holiday we needed to cut the grass before their arrival, but this wasn’t around the occupied pitches. Electric allowance is clearly stated on the Club website so was not a surprise on arrival.

Lovely CL

Lovely CL just outside York, flat, lawned and immaculately kept. We were quite fortunate to have it to ourselves. Very convenient for the park and ride into York itself, lots of places to visit close by. Will definitely be back at some point.
