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.

Another great stay

I have reviewed this site many times before. It’s a great site for visiting York. Easy walk into town with all the fabulous shops and pubs. We were there for Christmas and New Year so had a long stay of 16 nights, can’t fault the site. Wardens were very friendly and even though site was busy they were on top of everything including extra bin runs on Christmas Day.

Xmas Holiday Period Break

We were patient and lucky enough to get a full week reserved at Rowantree Site over the Xmas period at the last minute, and as we travelled from Aberdeenshire Scotland to say we thoroughly enjoyed the stay. The weather even at this time of the year was favourable for all caravaners. This site is well looked after, kept clean, with pleasant wardens. The location suited us down to a tee, city centre browsing, walks and cycling to your heart content. Venturing further afield, you have the Designer Outlet Store, Retail Parks and plentiful shops within the centre itself. Even walked the York Wall. It’s a pity we had to go home again.

Excellent Site for visiting the center of York

We stayed at the site for 3 nights and found it to be in a brilliant location to get to the center of York and visiting the city. The site was very clean and tidy throughout.Although the site is in the center of York it was quite despite the building work next door. It was well sign posted and easy to find. Would recommend this site for people visiting York.

Rowntree in the rail.

Just had a couple of nights at Rowntree (our second visit in two months) and even the dreadfully wet Yorkshire weather on our arrival and throughout the first afternoon & evening didn't spoil a very welcome break. Nice clean site within easy access of the city (even with the wife's wheelchair) and local shopping facilities. Ideal for anyone with a motorhome as you can park it up and walk everywhere. Well recommended - although I shouldn't say that as we want to come back and booking in here is always difficult because of demand.

This is one of our favourite sites on the network. We visit it on a regular basis. We continue to appreciate the excellent attention to detail and the kindness of the wardens.
