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.

Directions

Please Note: From 11 January 2021 work will commence on flood defenses in the area around the site. The normal approach road will be closed to facilitate this and a diversion will be in place.

The proposed diversion will require traffic to utilise Butcher Terrace off Bishopthorpe Road, continuing towards the Millennium Bridge, then turning left onto Terry Avenue (approaching the site from the opposite direction than that of the norm) with the river kept to the right hand side. Do not go down Clementhorpe Road (by The Swan pub) as this will result in a dead end and no room to negotiate turning around. Please do not arrive before the earliest arrival time of 1.00pm as there are limited passing places on Terry Avenue. The council have requested that the Club try to spread out arrival times so please arrive later if you are able to. Please check back here regularly for any updates, as the commencement date may change.

 

Please use this only recommended route avoiding city centre, speed humps, low bridges. Approach York via A64. At Designer Outlet junction continue on A19; in about 2 miles at Mecca Bingo keep left and continue over river bridges. In about 200 yards turn left at Swan public house and follow signs to Rowntree Park.

The best stewards I’ve known

It goes without saying that this site is 5 star ! But I’ve had a lot of stays at CMC sites spoiled by staff. Well apart from the obvious drawback with this team (they support Burnley!) I can say they are the most welcoming and friendly staff I’ve come in contact with. Keep it up Guys

Convenient for city centre

The site is well laid out and spacious pitches -so no problem with social distancing with fellow neighbors There is some noise from children playing in Rowntree Park next door if you happen to be on or around pitch numbers 12-18 which happens from 8.30am till dark beware! Also the pitches closer to the new Hotel catch more of the sun in the afternoon if its a sunny day Our key to the gate at the far end of the site was very hit and miss as to whether it worked or not For live music book a table at the Victoria Vaults a short 15 minute walk away on a Sunday afternoon We'v stayed four times on this site as it is an excellent location for walking into York will be back again next year Visit Rowntree Park next door for nice walks n cafe

Cracking city centre site

First visit for 5 years, as good now as it was then. Being close to the city centre the last few miles are on busy roads with lots of junctions, bus/cycle lanes bollards etc. First timers would be recommended to virtually drive the approach on google earth or similar. Some pitches on the tight side, especially length. Our 7.5m van just fitted. Toilets shut from 10.00 for 2 hours and a maximum of 4 in each block meant some earlier morning showers to beat the queues. Excellent location for the centre of York, with everything a 15 to 20 minute walk away. Highly recommended for a mini break.

What a fab site

First time on this site (and on a Club site-usually stay on CLs). It is a superb location for discovering York and for walks up and down the river. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful, the site is well cared for, clean and tidy. Showers, etc are good and plenty of hot water, however, they are closed for cleaning between 10 & 12 then again between 5 & 5.30. Cleaning and sanitizing is understood but the morning closure time is an issue and maybe some thought should be given to moving to 11 to 1 to alleviate the inevitable queues (especially with departure from site being 11)? Not on my own with these thoughts. Thanks for a lovely long weekend, will definitely return!

Great site

First time we've managed to get on this excellent site.. Always wanted to try but never got the chance due to it being booked up every weekend.. I can see why this happens now due to selfish folk that prebook months in advance taking all the weekends up to pick and choose which ones they want then not cancel the ones they don't want to turn up on leaving lots of empty pitches.. The wardens had to ring around chasing them up Friday because they hadn't come.. Should be banned from booking there again to be honest.. Hard enough to get a pitch there as it is..Definitely want to return here again with it being so close to town.. And facilities are great.. The arm band system would work well if people remembered to take their band with them when they vacate the facilities.. 4 allowed in if 2 forget to take it then their 2 bands are hanging on the hooks making those stood queueing outside believing there are 4 in there when there are only 2..Times are crazy so we all need to be on the same hymn sheet.. I wouldn't mind but there's a sign on the inside of the door reminding you to take the band with you on leaving.
