Excellent CL for peace and quiet

What a find! Only half an hour from home but felt we could have been miles away. Peaceful well kept site. Spacious and tidy. Great walks from site. Helpful friendly owners who weren't intrusive. Handy for York.

First time reviewer

Just returned after a six night stay on this C.L site which proved to be ideal for us, good dog walks from site. Sally gave us lots of information on places to visit, and local walks (Pocklington canal ), and dog friendly beaches on the coast, Ginger Cow café a twenty minute walk from site and excellent food well worth a visit. One of the best C.L sites we have stayed on , and will defiantly revisit. Thank you Sally John and Val

Our best CL

Easy to access and not far from the A road. ( Use entrance just past the house) Owners around most of the time. Very friendly and informative. Information in the large she'd with whiteboard for wildlife sightings. We saw kites, bats, .Great for dog walking with 2 large ponds nearby or cool woodland walks if it's very hot. Farm at bottom of road sells massive double yolk eggs - recommended. Lovely stream running through it. No showers or WC but we use our on board facilities anyway. Site fairly level and lawns cut well. No clippings left.Tidy and well kept. We stayed for a long weekend and visited York and Bridlington. Lovely and peaceful with little road noise. Will definitely return. Loved it. Best CL we have stayed at.

Relaxing peace

After a early finish from work and 40 minutes from home what else would you ask for? A warm welcome, a well kept site with lots of space, no noise, easy access and straight onto a bridle path for dog walking. It's all we want for a chilled out weekend and we will return .

Peace Perfect Peace

We have just spent a very relaxing week here. Arrived in pouring rain ,but had a warm friendly welcome from Sally and Graham. The site is flat and well maintained, recycling is straightforward in the barn. Everything has been well thought out ,plenty of space between pitches, a number of water taps and easy chemical disposal point .You can stroll up to the fishing lake and there are two seats to just sit and relax, a nice spot even if you do not fish.There is plenty to do in the area ,we visited Hull ,York and Harrogate. We spent a pleasant few hours at Burnby Hall Gardens, which was ablaze with Tulips and the small museum is very interesting. Burton Constable Hall is also well worth a visit.Although we arrived in rain ,we were then lucky enough to enjoy the beautiful weather over the Bank Holiday.An excellent site ,that we would love to return to..Thank you Sally and Graham, and loved the puppies!

Fabulous site!

We're visiting this site more regularly - each visit is relaxing & welcoming and when we leave we are already looking forward to the next visit! The owners are friendly and really helpful. The site is spacious, with well spaced pitches. The local attractions are many & varied including local towns and York City (only 25 minutes away). The views, walks and wildlife from the campsite are lovely. Watching the barn owl circling the site one evening last week (Easter) was spectacular. Thanks again for a great break, and see you again soon! Kev & Jane.

A Yorkshire Gem!

Found Common Farm after a brief search for CL's in Yorkshire with fishing on site. Description sounded spot on and so it proved to be. Lovely flat site, beautifully maintained with basic amenities to hand. On arrival Sally checked with us that all was OK and was very friendly and helpful, checking that we knew were everything was and telling us of the information and maps available in the barn. The small pond was delightful and in great condition, dragonflies and damsel flies abound - missed a few bites because of them. Fishing was good with some very nice size roach along with smaller roach and rudd - a delightful spot to spend a few hours. Wildlife abounds and saw our first Red Kite - glorious. Nice dog walks as well. Very easy to get into York, Beverly etc. and lots to see in the area. All in all a wonderful stay and we will certainly be back.

Superb as usual

Great site an hour from home but a warm welcome and very accommodating and helpful owners. The minute you set up you can relax in the peace and quiet. Great place for visiting lots of places. Amenities close by. Keep returning for a complete chill out. Great for walking the dog too. Beautifully kept CL , level and great facilities. All you need. Thank you once again Sally and Graham.

It's such a shame CL's are not rated because many CL owners deserve recognition and inquiries for all the hard work they do over and above what is necessary just to be a CL. This site would definitely be a 5 star. So very quintessentially English. It's very much luck of the draw when you book, I was lucky with this one, thank you for sharing your lovely site. Doesn't seem fair that in the past I have stayed on other CL's that unknown to me until I get there are well below par. Only way of finding out is by feedback, if no feedback has been left you have to chance it. Always nice to find a gem, Common farm is, shame about the name!

Fabulous CL!

We've used this CL a number of times & it's quickly become our favourite site. The owners Sally and Graham are welcoming and friendly - always willing to help. The site is flat, lawned & spacious with well placed electrics. There are conveniently placed picnic tables on site for the use of site guests. The immediate countryside is lovely - great for walking & cycling and only a short drive to York, Beverley or the coast. Ideal!
