Why stay here ...

A popular holiday site in North Yorkshire, York Rowntree Park Club Campsite 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 Club Campsite 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 Campsite 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 8 November 2021 until approximately 30 June 2022 work will take place on flood defences in the area around the site. The normal approach road will be closed to facilitate this and a diversion will be in place. Please do not use the site postcode to travel to the site, Clementhorpe is now closed.

If following the club directory instructions to site:

Cross Skeldergate bridge with City Walls on the right, you will see the *Swan public house on the left. Do not turn down Clementhorpe. Continue left passing parade of shops on Bishopthorpe Road.

At the traffic lights proceed straight on Bishopthorpe Road for approximately a quarter of a mile.

Look for the Winning Post pub on the right and then take the third turning on the left into Butcher Terrace (Postcode YO23 1LS), just after traffic island.

At the end of Butcher Terrace proceed onto a temporary road in front of the Millennium Bridge. Stay left and continue on Terry Avenue. Once you pass the main gates to the park it is approximately 300 metres to the site entrance on the left.

If approaching from the A59 follow signs into City Centre. Turn left from Holgate Road into Blossom Street then turn right at the traffic lights onto Nunnery Lane. In approximately 200 metres stay in the right hand lane then follow instructions from the Swan public house, as above. *

Fantastic Location for Visiting York

York Rowntree Park Club Campsite
Lovely site , with an easy walk in to York, even if the flood defence work is still in progress.The "new" route in is fine and for a city centre very manageable with no bottlenecks to contain with.Just be careful when turning into Butcher Terrace that you allow for you van length's on the back,as caravan in front hit kerb quite hard. York is an amazing city to walk around with visits to the Shambles and a guided tour inside the Minster,this was so good as without the guide you would have just walked past without knowing the history or story behind it. The Yorvik experience is good (not brilliant) but takes you through the story of York on a train ride.Pubs and restaurants aplenty and lovely having a drink on the river. The lovely Museum Gardens are pleasant to stroll around but they do close at 18.00hrs. We did do the York Dungeon but be careful it is not really suitable for under 10's.and you do need a sense of humour.It has sketches with real characters some really funny. Site is very nice wardens let me pitch first then go back and pay,one thing I did notice was the large pitches,plenty of room for awning car and van,that's if you are on an awning pitch. You can see why this is one of the most popular (but no cheap) club site.

York Rowntree Park Club Campsite
2nd visit this year.all facilities as expected but toilet block could be warmer early and evenings.especially for high site fees. Not full so I expect thats to do with cost ad well. No workmen over weekend.don't think embankment work will ever be done. York busy with lots of people about.good bus service to Leeds. Nice to wander round bishopthorpe Road on Sunday for the street party.even in the cool damp weather. Xmas fayre week next.

Great location, very clean well organised,great wardens

York Rowntree Park Club Campsite
Loved this site, great location, really very easy to get to even with the diversions no problem at all, it's sign posted at the last bit. Had a great pitch 49 down the middle a wide pitch plenty of room with hedges dividing the pitches. The showers and toilet block were absolutely spotless! As was the test of the site. Enjoyed the walk into York 20 minutes, lovely walk around Rowntree park at the side, great for kids lots of slides, zip wire, swings & frames and also up to Bishopthorpe Road, several shops couple of pubs take aways etc there & a handy Sainsburys. I would like to thank the wardens on this site, my husband was taken poorly i had loads of washing to do I had no washing powder, they gave me some of theirs as I didn't want to leave him on the site alone. They kept making sure i was okay and asking how he was throughout the day and the next day. They always had a pleasant smile and were nice and friendly and very approachable nothing was too much trouble. I have already booked to go back next year !

York Rowntree Park Club Campsite
I had a brilliant overnight here. Arrived at 1pm and headed straight into York (15 minutes walk) and then returned in the evening by the riverside walk, which is quite a bit longer. Really helpful staff team. I had a very peaceful night and I will return.

Brilliant location, well maintained site with lovely wardens

York Rowntree Park Club Campsite
This site is an excellent base for exploring York, situated next to the river it has excellent walks right on the doorstep. The site is very popular and it’s easy to see why, you can walk into York via a lovely local suburb with great shops, bars and cafes. The site has good facilities, is very well maintained and has lots of benefits being so close to the city. Next door is the lovely Rowntree Park with a great play area for children and nice walks. Also on this site the wardens went out of their way to help us, they were so lovely - Mark and Jules were fantastic and really helped us when we had an issue. Wouldn’t hesitate to return or recommend.
