10 Nights

A very efficient on-line booking system with no requirement for a deposit. We stayed for 10 nights. The site is easily accessed from the road through the expansive well-kept front garden of Warthill Grange – a modern house - and then through an electric side gate to the east of the house onto the CL. The CL is a large level oblong space with ample room for 5 vans. With a long enough cable, you can go anywhere there being no obvious pitch layout or orientation. The grass is good quality, nicely cut, drains well and takes awning pegs without difficulty. The northern part of the CL is shaded by tall trees. The southern part closer to the entrance and road has more sun. There is a pond with decking, solar lights, carp, ornaments, lilies, rushes and other planting in the southern corner and a real kingfisher spotted on one fleeting occasion! The CL is bounded with mature thick woodland to the north & east and a trimmed leylandii hedge and bank screening it from the front garden and road to the south. It is an attractive site let down only by the workshop buildings to the rear of the house that face onto the CL and the dozen or so vehicles that are parked around them, including some that are clearly out of use. The site is generally quiet but the speed of vehicles on the local road, which isn’t busy, causes some tolerable noise. It also rules out walking along the road for any distance but there is a short and worthwhile road walk to the nearby Breezy Knees gardens and café which is a gem. There are no footpaths from or close to the site which for us was its main downside. We didn’t cycle but there is potential to do so from the site as the roads are flat and York prides itself as being a bicycle friendly city. York with its P&Rs, free RW museum and large out of town shopping centres is easily accessible by car, as are Ripon, Knaresborough, Harrogate, 5 good National Trust properties and Castle Howard’s Yorkshire Arboretum (2 for the price of 1 with a C&MC great Savings Guide voucher). TV reception at the site was mostly good but it broke up on occasions.
