Why stay here ...

A popular holiday site in North Yorkshire, 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.

Check time of arrival

Had chance to visit this not so busy site but the email sent told me to arrive on site between 12 and 1400 hrs.But on arrival at 12:15 told by warden that would not be allowing on site till 1300 hrs.With this I then had to reverse off the site onto a single lane and find somewhere to park in city.Then on returning to site found that other campers had been allowed on and they informed me had been allowed to enter at 12:40 .I was annoyed then to add insult to injury all but one space was left and no choice but for me to take.After I had asked warden why couldn't email correct time he replied was busy and didn't have time and told me there were three emails going round but only one correct .But to say he was busy noticed time I stayed he spoke with guests most of time.So if you read this if like me please ask them what exact time you need to be there and don't take notice of emails you receive.York however a lovely place to visit including the railway museum.

Almost Perfect

Being very new to caravans this is only our third visit to a caravan site. The first two in Hawick and Berwick upon Tweed were a lot cheaper than this site and had water and waste on tap. We found it a pain having to keep going for water and emptying the waste thing. We were not able to book a pitch so it is first come first served so don't leave arrival too late. Our pitch was overlooked by a large budget hotel, fortunately it did not block the Sun being to the North. Toilets and showers were excellent. The location is perfect for walking into York and in fact also to the York Racecourse. We would have picnicked at the racecourse for a day if not for Covid 19.The adjacent park and lake are lovely and there is a play area and skate park for kids. Lots of wildlive around the lake. The Yorkshire Air Museum is a short drive away and we even went to Flamborough Head, had great Fish and chips and then called in at Bridlington Harbour before returning home.. Access is very tricky and our Sat-Nav took us down a dead end street where I had to reverse and turn around. Could be very interesting to meet a caravan coming the other way. In Summary. + Location + Very Clean and Well Maintained + Easy access to York & The Racecourse + Plenty of interesting locations to visit nearby + Short walk to shops and restaurants + Great for Kids - Pricey - No water taps or drainage on each pitch - Overlooked by a large hotel - No bar or entertainment - Access could be tricky. Don't rely on Satellite Navigation. Would go again just for a day at the races.

convenient site for vsiting sites of York

Visited the site just after the floods of February/March 2020 and the staff had worked very hard to get it cleaned up. The site was immaculate and the facilities were some of the best I have used in the C&M club. I would recommend the Masons Arms pub only 10 minute walk from the site, food is restaurant quality at a reasonable price.

The site itself is great, the city is even better.

York Roundtree remains a flagship site. Although I still feel it looks like a car park, it is immaculately maintained, welcoming and frankly one of the best possible sites for York. The city provides a wealth of cultural and entertainment venues. The city walls, the Minster, the Shambles. The Van Gogh exhibition was on this weekend. The site itself is great, the city is even better. If you can you should pay a visit as soon as possible.

Great site for York

First time we have tried to book this site and managed to get in straight away. We have been told how lucky we were because it’s always fully booked, and we can see why. Perfect for York centre just a stones throw away and very quiet with local shops very near. Very busy site and also very quiet and clean. We will be returning soon I hope.
