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.
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.

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.
