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.

Another Great Stay.

Looked on line and got few days away at short notice.Good choice of pitch,not fussed for few days but like to be level and not need ramp.Motorhome point not ideal as on slope and a bit tight to tap.River a bit high.I like to keep checking in case we need to get out quick !!! Water for washing up needs to be hotter,repeated comments in book but wardens hav'nt taken any notice.Toilet block could be warmer and usual stale smell. York busy but always worth a visit. Racing while we were there so pubs good for people watching. Nice lady with morning pasteries from Bishopthorpe road on site 8.45am,really good start to the day.

Lovely site in great location

We stayed here for 4 nights in early June & loved it. The site is quiet despite it's proximity to York, beautifully kept & very well run. The wardens were very friendly & helpful & had a great sense of humour. York City Centre is a 10 to 15 minute walk along the river, but if you walk the other way, it's like being in the country. There are local shops including great fish & chips a 5 minute walk away out of the back gate. Ideal for anyone wanting to visit York & not move their car or motorhome during their stay. The only slight criticism & this isn't the fault of the club is that the signs on the approach roads could be bigger & easier to see. Don't use a sat nav, our "special motorhome sat nav" sent us the wrong way!

Welcome Return

Our second visit to this wonderful site. Reading some of the other reviews make me disappointed at some folks tolerance levels. We were once again greeted by the brilliant wardens at the barrier. Everything necessary was explained briefly in a good humoured way. Our pitch was a choice already coned off because of the size of our van. Can't quite believe how much space there was (pitch 35). Very happy with the excellent facilities, spotless as before. Our time went too quickly and we are already missing being there. Although it is difficult to book the exact days that you want - be flexible, it's very worth it! Hopefully back again next year. (Should I have posted a negative review to put everyone off so that there's more space for me??). Thanks for a great stay.

PERFECT LOCATION - SHAME ABOUT INCONVENIENT SHOWER AND LOO AVAILABILITY

We visit this site numerous times every year. It's always busy and very nearly impossible to book a weekend stay. It is the only club site convenient for York City Centre in a Motorhome in my opinion. Perhaps this is why repeated requests from many club members for more convenient dishwashing, loo and shower block cleaning times are being ignored. I would now like to add mine to the number of frustrated members. The Gents is closed for 45 minutes from 10.15am and the Ladies from 10.45am. When we visited last week we arrived directly from another of our favourite club sites Coniston Park Coppice, where the loos and showers are all cleaned between 1pm and 2.30. So much more convenient for the campers. Most of us need to wash our pots, use the loos and have our showers in the mornings, before going out. Also, on leaving day check out time is 11.15 - It doesn't make for a very relaxing last morning.

Friendly staff, great Location

Stopped here for 3 days and from the minute we arrived we enjoyed our experience. Site very clean and greener than expected from the reviews. On arrival we were given excellent clear instruction and throughout our visit the staff were approachable and very friendly. We didn't use any of the onsite facilities but from what we could see it looked very clean. We enjoyed the shops that were accessible from the rear gate, plenty of coffee shops, bakers and a few bars. We enjoyed excellent beer and pizza @ Angel on the green. Cost of stay on the expensive side but with the location to the centre of York its well worth the extra, we were disappointed that there was a cost for the WiFi.
