The site is on a pleasant working farm with a nice lake to the side. The field was well cut and level and in good condition. We had booked and paid some months ago so during our 3 nights we did not see the site owners which was not a problem but simple signs showing which house to enquire at, which refuse bin to use and where the chemical toilet disposal point is would have been handy. Two to three pubs are within a mile and half. The filling station within 3 minutes walk sells newspapers and milk etc and the adjacent Little Chef and Burger King may be useful to some. A mile down the road towards York is a McDonalds and chip shop accessible by a bridge. Bus stop for York is at the site entrance but you have to return via Tadcaster and possibly change buses to come back up the A64 towards York as the busy A64 dual carriageway is more like a motorway and too dangerous to cross. The site is very pleasant and the fee is very low so nobody can complain and it is ideal for an overnight stop. However the continual loud traffic noise from the busy A64 alongside the site does not make it a quite site.
