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.

Terrible Warden nice site

Having read some of the praise for the warden I was amazed to find the lack of patience and somewhat unpleasant interactions with him on 5 separate occasions he was rude and dismissive and as my wife is disabled expected better, his wife if that who the female warden is however was very nice. He does keep the site well maintained but I believe he considers the visitors as a nuisance that he has to put up with. I have booked to go toYork again but on a private site just up the road as the area is fantastic. I will not be renewing my membership as this has left a very unpleasant taste in my mouth. I went to the site in May and have left this review for 3 weeks to make sure i thought it through so as not to let my upset blur my thinking & to work though my mind to see if my interactions were in any way down to me I have come to the conclusion that I was as pleasant as anybody and did not deserve any of the treatment I received.

Not sure why there are such rave reviews

What made the weekend, the weather, it is like it was ordered, wall to wall sunshine from arriving to departing. Easy access to site from a64, just count your roundabouts. On arrival at the site to be greeted by friendly staff and were advised of which pitches we could use, we had booked a non-awning pitch, I dare say there weren’t any awning pitches available when we booked, as I wouldn’t have booked non-awning when the awning is the same price. I asked if we could put a windbreak up and were advised abruptly that we must remove it when not in use, yet everyone else had them up and left them up throughout their stay. What amazes is me is that this site has been highly refurbished, and as I understand it vans need to be level, so why on earth are pitched not laid close to level, as there was a good degree slope where we were, soon fixed with ramps, but still not level on top ramps. If you want to rely on public transport, which we did, it was 25 minute walk to the bus that ran every half hour, or 15 minutes to the bus that ran 5 times a day, but not on a bank holiday! The toilet facilities looked new, but why don’t people treat them like their home, and if they do a no. 2 make sure that they clean up after themselves, they were a disgrace on many occasions, toilet roll paper and inner cardboards all over the place. There was a general lack of hand soap by the basins throughout the break, the only place I found hand soap was where toilets waste was emptied, and there no tap. The site had a lot of unruly children on, and whilst I appreciate it is school holidays, I am on holiday too and do not appreciate children playing hide and seek around any van other than their own. There were trailing lead, bbqs, seating, etc, outside all vans and who would have been at fault if they had fallen or hurt themselves. The warden I initially though was not interested, but reading through some other reviews, he had had enough of them too. Please keep your children under control and in your sight rather than mine. There is a small sign round the toilet area saying no bikes around that area, maybe a picture of a bike with a cross through would have been more appropriate as when I was nearly knocked over I pointed to the sign and asked what it said and darnnright rude just continued riding bike in that area, couldn’t care less. All in all an enjoyable break, but certainly won’t be visiting on bank / school holidays.

A great stop over

I cannot complain about my visit here as it was just a stop over & it was perfect for us, the warden helped us on our late arrival, the site was so quiet it was embarrassing trying to level up as quietly as possible, but once settled we had a lovely quiet nights stay & a perfectly relaxing morning to get ready for the next part of out journey, the facility's were fantastically clean & well laid out, If i was to warn people about anything it would be once you come off the roundabout & on to the road leading to the site is keep driving right up the road as far as you can go & you will find the site otherwise its well hidden.

Clean and mostly quiet

We arrived on Feb 21st for 3 nights. The site is clearly popular -perhaps because it was half term - and was very full. The toilet block was clean and more than adequate - never saw any one queuing. Plenty of children on the playground and cycling but they were never an issue. We used the camp wifi - we think this was expensive but it was better quality than we expected.
