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.

Very pleased to have stayed at York again

It is a great site...so close to York for walking into town. Thankfully no flooding while we were there. As a new runner it is close to York racing track for the Park Run although I wasn’t there on a Saturday morning so had to run it on my own! There is great scope for walking with a dog even though the park next door was closed while we were there. The pitches are a good size. The wardens are friendly and helpful. We managed to get 6 nights patiently watching the website 2/3 weeks in advance of our arrival. Thanks for another great stay.

This is one of our favourite sites, it is close to the city centre and to Bishy Road and Rowntree Park. This visit we also discovered the cafe in the park. On this visit we enjoyed drinking latte on the balcony of the cafe. It had an excellent selection of cakes. Thanks to the wardens for the attention to detail.

YORK weekend

Firstly I never book months or weeks in advance, so when I check late availability a week or two in advance, I nearly always get on. So if an awning pitch is available (and I never put an awning up just for a weekend ) then I take it. The extra room is a bonus. But if the warden was to ask me on arrival if I needed an awning pitch, I would be prepared to swap if someone did. As for the site , for me it’s a base for visiting York. It’s never going to win prizes for beautiful pitching areas. If I could make one suggestion it would be off at 12.00 and earliest arrival 13.00 like Chatsworth.

A wonderful weekend

My wife and I booked Rowntree Park for the weekend (fri-sun) as it was close to the city and the feedback we had received about the site were positive. We were not disappointed. Chris and Carol the wardens gave us such a warm welcome and were very informative and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble and they were always there if needed. The site in our opinion was spotless (hedges neatly trimmed & the flower displays were beautiful) and our pitch was more than adequate in size for our VW camper and awning. We did understand there was work on a new hotel going on next door and had been for a while, yet it did not distract from our break at all. The club or wardens can have no control on works taking place nearby no more than they can influence the river traffic activity or the lovely park next door with the sound of families enjoying their local facilities. I cannot comment on the clubs wifi as we did not use it. There is very good mobile phone network coverage in the area and we were happy using that. Overall a great location, a fantastic weekend and wonderful staff. We will most certainly be coming back.

GREAT LOCATION BUT THATS WHERE IT ENDS

If this site was sited elsewhere it would be a 3/5 rating. Don't get me wrong the staff are fantastic but ......they have their work cut out.. Club wi fi is none existant!!!! Noise from the buildings being built alongside have been annoying for over the last 12 months. The site pitches are so cramped together and regulations on site are rediculous relating too them. Too many people are booking awning pitches and not putting them up! We counted 43!......please don't give me that old story that they may have decided not too (43?) And also saying they might be the only pitches available ! This leaves other members not able to put one up!.... This site will always be full because of its location ....but having booked for September 2020 for a birthday we have decided to cancel.........2 nights midweek £78.80! ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS !
