Ideal for visiting York

Used this site for our first visit to York. Easy access into the site. Ideally placed with a good regular bus service into York. We also cycled into York-partly on the main road and then we picked up the cycle lanes. Flat site with 12 pitches. We were there over a bank holiday and it wasn’t full. There is some traffic noise. Definitely use this site again.

New Well Laid Out Site With Good Access To York

Access to the site is easy, no narrow lanes,and a wide turning splay in. As a result there is some road noise from the adjacent lane but this is not continuous and should not put you off from coming. Like the previous reviewer we stayed in early August when there was a larger than expected occupancy of the site. Yes there are 12 bays but not all are used at any one time and it gives the owners flexibility and the ability to rest bays so that grass can regrow where it has suffered from die back due to groundsheets. As for the flames from the barbecue referred to by the earlier reviewer this is something they should have raised at the time with the members of the club using the barbecue we would have done. Access to York via the park and ride or via the normal bus service is exceptional. The site does not have a picturesque view across a Yorkshire valley or moor but it does have a very good access to York and the Aircraft Museum. The owners are very friendly and helpful and it is a site to which we would return.

To close for comfort

Was quite surprised at the amount of bays at this site,12 in all, we felt a bit hemmed in and there was only about 3ft between caravans in front,also got bit worried when campers next door had a barbecue going and flames were shooting up in the air they were both in the camper van.The field itself is fine owners have made a good job of waste water toilet waste, rubbish, all behind a fence which is good, road noise is audible during the week.Owners friendly and gave lots of information on arrival,lock in and out of gate a bit fiddly.We wouldn't stay again because we like a site which only has 5 units on,not 7 which was on when we visited.

Ideal for visiting York and surrounding area

The site is easy to find, just off the A64 and well signposted. Gina met us at the gate and gave us lots of information for visiting York plus some extra valuable information for our visit to York Racecourse for a concert we had booked. The site is flat and well laid out with your own sectioned off pitch. Water and bins etc behind a screen and solar lights at night time. There is a gate through to the adjacent road which is a short walk to the bus stop on the main road into York. We used the bus every day which is very frequent and takes about 15 mins. I would definitely recommend this site and will use it again if we come to York.

Perfect site for York & Surrounding Areas

We stayed for one night on Saturday 4th May as we had an event to go to in the centre of York. The location was perfect for this, with a bus stop available a few minutes walk from the site. Gina greeted us on arrival and was extremely helpful with an information pack and advice. The site is also probably the best laid out one we have been to, with extremely spacious pitches, sectioned out so there is no confusion. We will definitely be back, with our dog, and for longer next time, as there are lot of public footpaths nearby, and just a 30 minute stroll to the pub in Deighton.

Perfect for visiting York

Enjoyed a five night stay at Crockey Hill Caravan Park over a gloriously warm Easter 2019. A perfectly positioned site with easy access from the A64 (South-side of York). Individually separated pitches with helpful solar lighting to mark each pitch, and good fresh water, waste water and chemical disposal points plus good recycling system all in place. We sited on the nearest pitch to the wide entrance gates and found the traffic noise not at all intrusive. Gina (owner) not only presented a helpful ‘visitors pack’ on arrival, but also checked on our well-being over our few days stay. Kath’ and I will definitely return, and wholeheartedly recommend this site to members

Great CL

Lovely hosts, all info you need for area is given on arrival. A little wet when we visited but we pitched close to side gate giving access to adjacent road which is noisy in the morning. (The tarmac is bad right outside this point causing the rattling noise from lorries.) It will wake you about 06.00hrs 5min walk to bus stops. If returning when dark you will need a torch. Wouldn't hesitate to stay in the future, owners have plans to carry on with improvements so it will only get better. You should stay here...

Excellent base to visit York City and surrounding area

We stayed here for 3 nights in October to visit York City, very good access and easy to find as it is just off the A19 Selby road. The site is simple and tidy with all the standard basics, no lighting so torches are needed and a long water tank filler hose as the tap is higher than normal at 1200mm (4ft). There is some traffic noise but that is to be expected if you want a side handy for public transport. There is a bus stop about 400m away on the A19 with busses every 15/30 mins up to 11.15pm direct to the City center & the Designer Outlet about a mile away, take your bus pass if you have one for free travel. The owner met us as we arrived with lots of good advice, they do not live on site so that is why they ask you to phone when you arrive.

Not much not to like.

We recently stayed for 4 nights on this quite new and well thought out basic site. No toilet or shower but fine for a short stay. Water and waste disposal well shielded from view but easy to access. Grass short and cuttings collected. EHU's well within reach on all spacious pitches, which are segregated by a low wooden fence. The site is only lit at the water and disposal area as and when you activate the detector otherwise complete darkness. Traffic noise from the road is at its worse between 7am and 9am and made up of mixed traffic. during our stay this was made worse by a pair of tractor and trailer outfits making 5 or 6 trips an hour from 6.30am carrying beet/turnips or similar loads for most of the morning, but I presume this would not be experienced out of 'season' it was however annoying to be wakened by them each morning while we were there. I wouldn't hesitate to use this site again and recommend it without hesitation.

Cracking Crackley Hill

If you want easy access to the city of York you can do no better than stay here. Gina and Gary offer a warm welcome, plenty of practical information about accessing the local area and a clean well appointed site. There is very obviously a focus on customer care with this couple. We went into York by bus on the two days we stayed here and it couldn’t have been easier. We will stay here again and look forward to meeting Lizzie the dog on our next visit.
