Why stay here ...

A popular holiday destination, York Rowntree Park Club Site offers level pitches located on the banks of the River Ouse. Some pitches have attractive hedging and glades which provide not only a scenic treat but also ensure your privacy. The caravan park is within easy walking distance of the beautiful and historic city of York and also makes for an excellent base from which to explore the Yorkshire area. York itself has so much to see and do that you'll find the time can slip by all too easily. Using a pedestrian gate at the back of the site leads you to a parade of local shops, including a fantastic fish and chip shop with cafe, Indian and Thai restaurants and numerous takeaways as well as a selection of Cafe's, food and convenience shops.

 
Although the site is near to the city centre, it is peaceful and has a lovely rural feel, with pleasant walks down the side of the river to the Millennium bridge and more. York Rowntree Park Club Site is ideal for those wishing to visit York Minster - the largest gothic cathedral in northern Europe. Do include a walk to the city's medieval walls and the Shambles to get a feel of the old city with its medieval timber framed houses. You may also stumble across Snickelways of York which is a collection of small street and footpaths. Why not walk down Whip-ma-whop-ma-gate: a street of historical interest which is the shortest street in York with the longest name. Whilst staying at York Rowntree Park why not call in at the many real ale pubs, The York Dungeons, Jorvik Viking Centre and take a time-car, which will transport you back to the city's distant past. Should you have any budding archaeologists in the family, visit the ARC at St Saviours Church and train enthusiasts of all ages won't want to miss the award-winning National Railway Museum.

Lovely site.

One of our favourite sites. The location is perfect for walking into York. Facilities are spotless and the wardens, especially Chris and Carol, we're particularly helpful. The only problem is getting a booking, it's so popular.

Always nice to get in at short notice,need to keep checking website. Used 1st pitch that was free,okay for just a few days.Possibly needs branches etc picking up and holly at back of pitch was a bit of a problem plugging in.Don't bother with wasing up room as water isn't hot,but water at basins in toilet block hot!! don't understand that but never mind. York always busy.Good for a wander and to sit and people watch. Ready for return subject to space and health.

Tour de Yorkshire 2019 Phase 3

Our first time on this site, stayed 23rd to 28th August. Although very busy as we expected on a nice bank holiday, the site team kept everything running smoothly, from the very organised meet and greet by your vehicle at the barrier on arrival (busy times only I believe) to the upkeep of the site. The location to York is fantastic, a 10 minute stroll down the river and over the bridge and you are right in the centre for shopping, dining out or a casual tea time drink, Walk the opposite way down the river and you have a lovely park to have a picnic, feed the ducks or visit the cafe in, then you can carry on your walk a little further and over a steel bridge and back down the other side and into the centre or back to site. We will return the next time we want the choices for eating out that York as to offer.

Fantastic staff

We had made a mistake in our booking and the staff went out of their way to help. Many thanks to them. The site is in a fantastic location - 10 minutes easy walk to Clifford'sTower and the Castle Museum. The shower block is spotless. The lockable gate at the side of the site leads to a lovely choice of shops, cafes, bakers and a couple of pubs - all within a five minute stroll.

Just a grumble

We have visited this site numerous times and the selling point is the location. For visiting York it can’t be beaten if you want to avoid the hassle and cost of getting into the centre. The site is good enough although crammed in to maximise number of outfits and is not conducive to really relaxation. Of all the sites we visit though this one has the most inconsistent implementation of rules by the warden teams (not just the current ones). We were disturbed today as my partner has his van parked in the proper place to the left of the caravan and the tow car is where the awning should be - which we haven’t put up due to weather. The van is only here because my partner got stuck behind a serious accident on the way home from work so had to meet me at the site instead of home as planned. The actual website says extra cars are allowed, but we have just had an off hand warden tells us this isn’t allowed. It wasn’t a secret either - the other warden yesterday said it was fine. Meanwhile there are windbreaks all over the place on other pitches (not allowed according to rules), children playing ball games (not allowed according to the rules), outfits left without people staying (not allowed according to the rules), and all apparently unchecked. I have no issue complying with rules at all, but if you are enforcing them, then let’s have consistency across the board.
