Why stay here ...

York Beechwood Grange Club Site has re-opened following extensive refurbishments in 2018, book now to be one of the first to stay.

Read all about the improvements in our York Beechwood Grange refurb news article.

Set in open countryside just outside York, York Beechwood Grange Club Site is beautifully screened from the world with trees and hedges. The caravan site is ideal for exploring the historic city or for discovering Yorkshire's many varied attractions further afield. It is also a great location for families in search of plenty of space for children to play and yet within close range of both modern conveniences and the pleasant surrounding natural landscapes.

York Beechwood Grange Club Site puts you within easy reach of local transport - Park 'n' Ride is available from Monks Cross, allowing you to visit a wide range of interesting locations. Monks Cross offers plenty of high street shops and a variety of places to eat and drink. Retail parks where you can shop 'til you drop are within easy reach too. The medieval streets of York offer an excellent opportunity to soak up the local history: just some of the attractions to visit are the Minster, National Railway Museum and the fascinating Jorvik Viking Centre. Other places within a short distance from the site and well worth the visit are Rievaulx Abbey, Ryedale's market towns, the famous Moors and of course the beauty of historic Bronte country. Travelling a little further afield, you can reach the popular coastal resort of Scarborough. For fabulous food shopping and delicious local produce head to Malton, known as Yorkshire's food capital. The town also hosts the annual Food Lovers Festival with cookery demonstrations, family entertainment, lots of food stalls and plenty more. Nearby to Malton, Flamingo Land has plenty to keep the kids entertained, including a theme park and plenty of wildlife. For a more leisurely outing, you can opt for a romantic cruise along the river Ouse.

Short Break

Enjoyed our short break at this site. The toilet facitilies are the best we have ever used and the site is lovely and tidy with a dog walk where the dogs can run off lead. Ideally placed for the Monks Cross Park and Ride for a visit to York. There is some road noise but does go quiet at night. Once again though I have to say that speeding was a problem both with cars and cars with caravans. It is time something was done about this by the Caravan Club. We have visited numerous sites and spoken to other people about this problem and everyone we spoke to including Wardens said speeding is an ongoing problem. Having said that we enjoyed our stay and will return.

First time at Beechwood Grange

We thought we would try the site following its recent multi thousand pound upgrade. The site was spotless and the toilet/shower block was modern and gleaming. There are some open views at the rear of the site. We were surprised that you could hardly hear the noise from the York bypass as the site is so close. Thankyou to the wardens for keeping it like this and also trying to help us out with the Wi Fi issues. However if you visit this site there are a few things that you should be aware of: The entrance to the site is a small road off a VERY busy York bypass A64/A1237 roundabout. Blink and you will miss it. The WiFi is graded as bronze where in fact it is non-existent. If you have business on-line to do or e mails to send think about another way of connecting (4G is OK on site) If you have a dog you cannot walk it down the access road (this is the only access to the site) so if you want to catch a bus and take your dog you have to put the dog in the car drive down the access road and park on the old A64, then walk with your dog! We left at 11.45 (thinking departure time was 12 mid-day) and were told in no uncertain terms that we should have been off site by11.15am. I know now that it says that in the guidebook but please can there be a chalkboard outside the wardens office with the departure time on it to warn people who don't read the small print in the members guidebook. Thanks

York in early October 2018

What a spanking new site! The facilities are as spotless as you'd expect and the Wardens very nice and very helpful. They were clearly proud of the site and deservedly so. We were only there 2 nights, just to get a flavour of York, and despite being near the Main road it was suprisingly quiet. There's a very helpful Information hut which made it easy to plan our trip into York within our limited timescale. We opted for the Park and Ride about 5 mins away and were able to use our bus passes! It's also in the centre of the shopping outlets so there are lots of good shopping facilities very close. We'd happily go back there for a longer time and get to know more of the sights in the area.

October half term stay

This is a lovely well kept site, the wash facilities have been beautifully refurbished and the showers are plentiful. Our pitch was spacious, in the sunshine n close to the park and facilities. The kids loved the park and there was also a field to play on. York was a short drive and we parked in the national railway Museum car park which is £10 for the day. We visited the museum, York chocolate story, and enjoyed the street entertainment. We also visited piglets adventure farm which was fab for the kids and slightly cheaper than York maze. Just be aware that sat nav does not like the postcode, it takes you to the right round about but doesn’t take you off on the right turning but there is a sign for the site at the turn off. Would definitely recommend and visit again.

Quick stop off

Stayed here for one night as a stop off on our way home from the coast. Site was almost full but facilities well able to cope. We were bothered by the road noise being in a pop top campervan which would put us off staying here again. Decent sized dog walk which was necessary as that is the only place they can be walked without driving off site. Good torch needed though when using it at night! Lovely welcome from warden. Best one we’ve ever had. He even showed us to our pitch. Little touches like that make such a difference on whether a site is viewed positively so thank you.
