A little peace and quiet.

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

Peace and quiet

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.

February amidst the floods

Just coming to the end of a superb week away at the end of February 2020. Much of the country has been battered by storms and there is widespread flooding. Riverside properties in York are under water so when Wendy suggested we could pitch on the grass I was dubious. We had after all picked out Field House farm because it had hardstanding pitches. Also only having 2wd didn't want to create a ploughed field effect. However Wendy was right. The field was well drained and the grass short so despite the deluges there was not the slightest amount of slippage or sinking. Indeed been padding about the field in ordinary shoes, packed wellies not required!. We use our on board facilities so didn't use the excellent looking shower and toilets. No wonder this CL has won so many awards and the friendly owners so many friends and repeat bookings. All for very reasonable pitch fees. This is not our usual area for our holidays but I suspect we will be back. Thanks for making us so welcome.... John and Miranda

Back again :)

Another wonderful holiday cant thank Wendy enough for the work she puts in. A top class site immaculate luxury shower loo and hand basin in one room. An extra loo and wash hand basin so never waiting. Excellent information room better than some tourist information we've used around the country. Chutneys, jams etc to be bought. Best of all to eat fantastic fresh eggs. Yes we love this site so peaceful but with it's close proximity to the park n ride into York best of both worlds. We definitely will be back. Jude n Peter

Super-duper site

What a lovely CL! We've just spent a long family weekend here in lovely surroundings and almost total silence - we really didn't want to leave. It's so peaceful on site, the facilities are spotless, and even after a day of very heavy rain the site was well drained. The Park and Ride into York is only a few miles away at Fulford, so it's a great place to set up camp. We had an excellent Saturday night meal at The Drovers Arms in Skipwith and a lovely walk on Skipwith Common on the Sunday. We've come home with several jars of Field House chutney, marmalade and jam, so are now looking forward to trying them out. Access to the site is very easy, Wendy is very welcoming and lovely to chat to, and provides all the information you need in the lovely log cabin. The sheep are lovely and Ollie the cat is just wonderful. He spent most of the time in our awning and I would have loved to pack him into the van and bring him home! I'm going to miss him, but we're going to book for next Spring, so I'll look out for him again then. All in all this is now on the list of our favourite little sites - and we're so pleased we found it.
