Top Notch

Field House Farm
Just spent 3 nights at Feild House Farm only 40 mins from home and somewhere to chill, We got just what we needed. Greeted on arrival, picked our own pitch, facilites excellent, manicured grass in late October couldn't fault it. We had a very pleasant meal at The Drovers Arms only 5 mins drive away and some lovely walks through the Skipwith Common Nature Reserve only a couple of miles away. Quality CL sites are definitly our way forward. No wonder they have won several awards well deserved.

Better than some Club sites

Field House Farm
We stayed at Field House Farm in July and had a superb week. The site itself is beautiful and superbly looked after by Wendy, who was a mine of information about all things in the area. It is located within easy access of York itself and very convenient for the excellent park and ride service. There are local pubs and restaurants, serving quality food at good prices. The only disappointment on the food front was the Happy Haddock fish shop, located in a lay-by off the. A19 nearby. Apart from York itself, there are many interesting venues in the area, such as the Air Museum nearby, as well as being within fairly easy driving distance of the coast. The toilets and shower facilities were always immaculate and for my money, this CL is better value than quite a few of the Club sites. Make sure you book early, because it is busy and deservedly so.

Excellent CL

Field House Farm
We stayed here for 3 nights and found it to be an excellent CL. The facilities were very clean and the shower was good. The pitches are flat and well spaced. We enjoyed seeing the young pigs in the field (don't worry - they're not smelly). We attempted the walk to Skipwith Common but went the wrong way somewhere, nevertheless it was a pleasant walk. Apparently you need insect repellent at certain times of the year! It is quite remote - I don't think there's a nearby bus stop. Fortunately we had friends locally to take us out as we don't like to take our motorhome out again once we're pitched up. The outlet centre on the A19 is excellent (in normal circumstances) and worth a visit.

A little peace and quiet.

Field House Farm
I booked here initially to meet up with a friend to do a bit of geocaching in the area but for her vehicle difficulties scuppered that so I was on my own for a lovely bit of relaxing. The site is spotless. Very well maintained. I received clear instructions via email about a week before arrival and upon arrival there was a sign with arrival details and instructions of where to pitch. I was the only one for the first night so had my pick of the site. Nice and flat and well drained. The facilities 1 separate toilet and sink and then a separate bathroom with toilet sink and big shower separated by an information room selling a few local produce, with honesty box. these were all spotlessly clean and well maintained. It’s extra for hot water but I found that 60p was quite enough for a lovely hot shower, there are some lovely walks around the area that are all listed in the information book found in the information room and it’s a great place to be based for a trip to York. The owner wendy is on hand for if you need any info about anything and is absolutely lovely and welcoming. As at the farm kitties. But a warning. If you feed them then they own you for the duration of your trip. Lol I found this out on the first night and was greeted every morning by kittie cuddles. All in all top marks for this lovely little cl and I’ll definitely be back

Field House Farm
Friendly owner to greet us on our arrival. delightfully quiet site surrounded by sheep. EHU and water very close by each pitch. Easy drive in to York Park and Ride. Site is very flat and well drained. The cabin housing the loos and shower is clean and well maintained. We would rather have paid an extra amount per day for hot water in the cabin than feeding a meter - and this would have given hot water to the handbasins after using the loo. Lovely site and we hope to visit again.
