Why stay here ...

Due to the construction of a new hotel on the land adjacent to our site, there will be some disruption and noise whilst this work takes place. We apologise for any inconvenience caused but this is beyond The Club's control.

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.

The site went through some exciting changes over winter 2014/15. The warehouse that lined one side of the site was demolished was converted into pitches, while the riverside annex was closed. The newly developed area contains 16 new hardstanding pitches which are a combination of awning and non-awning, and the site also offers 5 pitches for backpacking tent campers. There is also a new dedicated service point for this area and TV booster system added to the bollards. The development work this winter means that all visitors will now be together on one site.

Impeccable

We have stayed here many times. It’s a city site in a first class location with so much to see and do in the area. The site is immaculate, it’s a credit to Phil and Janet the wardens. It’s not an easy site to run, it’s extremely busy and with constraints on access due to narrow streets with parked cars. the current wardens run the “pitch and pay later policy” at busy tines, it’s to be hoped that will continue when new wardens take over. It should be considered a great example of a well run and beautifully maintained club site. It will be sad to see Phil and Janet go to Hargill House, next season, but whoever follows is taking on a site in first class, tip top condition.

Great site, but why isn't departure 12.00

Managed to get a late booking for a couple of days during half term. A bit of noise from the hotel construction which will overlook the site as the highest part is 5 floors 11.00 departure time is irritating. Should be 12.00 departure with arrivals from 13.00 like other caravan club sites with restricted access

First visit to Rowntree Park

One of the best Club sites we've visited, and one we're sure to visit again. The site itself was clean & tidy with good facilities and friendly staff (and other members). Good disabled facilities too. Literally a ten to fifteen minute walk into York centre and its wonderful tourist bits and excellent shopping, but also a busy shopping street with cafes and take-a-ways a leisurely five minutes away. The Barbican centre (snooker, bands and other entertainment) about ten minutes on foot. National Railway Museum perhaps twenty minutes walk, whilst Rowntree Park itself is on the doorstep. Brilliant river bank walks, and lovely autumnal colours on our visit. First class!

Reoccuring theme in the reviews

This is one of my favourite sites ,however be warned,make sure you are 6 metres away from the next unit. I parked up,by the peg as per caravan club policy,put the kettle on,to then watch the warden appear with a measureing wheel. I was 30 inches (0.8m) too close to the other unit.I moved to find i was covering the peg by 12 inches! To my amusement, on the corners near to the side gate there were caravans less than 5 feet apart. Lovely site,great position.(Do not forget to take your tape measure)

FANTASTIC AS USUAL

We visited the site midweek because as usual it's practically impossible to get a longer stay.......and no wonder if was fully booked. Great location within 1 mile from the town centre,3/4 mile from the racecourse and lots of other things to do.. Staff are always fantastic. (we will miss a couple of them when they leave to go to Richmond Argill house this week) and the site is a credit to the club We have been here 4/5 times a year since we joined the club and will continue to do so.........ALTHOUGH!!!! Something has to be addressed regarding the booking of pitches with awning space...(white pegs) We were only offered space without awning space (blue pegs) because they were all full........but on the first day I checked the white pegs and found to my surprise that out of 53 only 4 had put an awning up...........The club needs to rectify this situation someway.....
