Why stay here ...

Please Note: Due to flooding, York Rowntree Park is currently closed. Further updates will be provided once river levels begin to fall.

 

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.

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.

5 mph

My family and I have stayed on this site many times and hope to do so many more. What we cannot understand is just how fast some motorists are driving around the site. 5 mph means 5 mph, NOT 15 mph. It seems that caravanners are in such a rush to get off the site that they forget they have their caravan in tow. Motorhomers don’t seem to be in the same rush. I do remember reading that a tragic accident happened on this site a few years ago near one of the pedestrian links. This last week we were pitched next to one of the pedestrian links where speed humps are also in place. Numerous caravanners were literally doing emergency stops just before it because they were going so fast. In the hope of preventing further accidents can all visitors please respect the 5 mph site limit, or maybe a ridiculous number of extremely high speed humps can be installed at 20 metre intervals to prevent actually exceeding 5 mph.

when we arrived we were greeted by a very helpful and friendly warden taking time to explain the site. off we go and find a pitch to suit mind not many available due to site constantly busy once sorted go to reception and pay once again the wardens were a mind of information and very very polite and professional. site ideal for walk into city, Rountree park excellent to walk around with the dog. sit along the river bank and watch the world go by. highly recommend the fishermans wife chippy out the back gate and turn left at top of road. Can't wait until we return to this site
