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.

Great stay, even with the flooding!

Super efforts by staff, we had traveled from Slough and they called to let us know that there was a likelihood of minor flooding. Kept us informed and we decided to stay anyway. Arriving was busy due to the flooding issues and I managed to lock us out the our Motor-home, staff helped and we were back in quickly. All facilities were very clean, my only criticism would be no music in showers and using keys to gt in the shower blocks was a bit of a pain. Also understand that with proximity to the river towpath, issue of non-members using toilets etc has been an issue. All in all a really great stay with such convenient access to York and its attractions.

Great location

We visited this site, last weekend 16/17 March 2019 and I have to say the location is excellent. Access to the site is a little tight. It didn't bother us, as we only have a small camper, but I would imagine those with large touring rigs could struggle, especially as the site is so popular. Rowntree is set up in similar fashion to all CC sites, with spotless facilities, and excellent friendly staff. However, this sites popularity must come from its position. Easy walking distance into the city including the Minster and the Shambles. Loads of pubs and restaurants to choose from, and you are right on the banks of the river. That said, the site is liable to flooding. If you fancy a stay in York, this site is ideal. Book very early. Robert.

Rowntree park top site

Recently back from this wonderful site. Now we know why it has taken years to be able to book a pitch! Excellent site in a great location, easy walk into York city centre, with all it's attractions. Another easy walk along the river and into Rowntree park. Out of the rear gate to a parade of shops including a small Sainsbury's supermarket and a highiy recommended 'Fishermans Wife's fish and chip shop with cafe! Good facilities and very friendly efficient warden's. We can highly recommend this site

A midweek return visit

This is our third visit to this site, delayed because of Environment Agency works on flood monitoring which we heard about a couple of weeks before arrival. We organised an alternative night elsewhere and arrived lunchtime on the Monday. The wardens were brilliant in getting onsite immediately to avoid a long queue with all vans arriving at an empty site. Despite a flood threat with the possibly of having to evacuate we did not need to because river levels kept below the bank. This is an excellent site and access to the town is easy. It's a brisk 20 minute walk to the railway museum and about the same to the Minster so it is conveniently placed. Regretfully its popularity means that trying to book a whole week is virtually impossible. Midweek is the best bet. Also site costs are always high for us because we have a grown up (and ill) daughter who always comes with us. Rejigging the handbook to show pitch fee and one adult reflects the sensitivity of the Club towards the ever increasing prices. There are not many solo tourers so I think the handbook would be more realistic reverting back to pitch plus two adults and in many places pitch plus two adults and two children. And also the highes price you will pay not lowest. Now that would show up true costs espiecally now that pricing has been removed from the handbook for each pricing band. We shall try to come back for a week. Here's hoping!
