Good location

Primrose Bank
Spent 2 nights at this site. It was extremely clean and tidy. Easy access with spacious pitches . The 5 units of electric included per day was plenty. Very handy location for our visit to York . Nearby park and ride highly recommend as parking can be a bit pricey. Fantastic Thai just up the road !

Pleasant stay on lovely cl

Primrose Bank
We had a lovely six night stay at Primrose Bank. Friendly owners who run adjoining garden and nursery. While tea room and garden only open Friday we were welcome to go round the garden and greenhouses at any time to view (andbuy) from the fantastic array of plants. Field is beautifully maintained with huge pitches. We had some lovely cycles and went to the races. York easily accessible as is outlet centre.

Peaceful

Primrose Bank
Had a lovely peaceful weekend here in August 22. We were in our MH and two friends came to stay with us. Only two caravans there. Large level field with lots of space to each pitch. Very relaxing and didn’t feel under pressure to leave at the time specified. Maybe that was because no one else was booked on our pitch after us. Was lovely not to be rushed off the site. Sue was very helpful when I messaged her and asked her questions. Will definitely go back, especially as Elvington airfield is so close.

Lovely, well maintained CL, Excellent for York.

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.
