A Very Pleasant Place to spend some down time

If you read the previous 4 reviews before mine then you get a good idea of what to expect. The lawned area (no hardstandings I'm afraid) is quite large, there are 3 (x2) electric points scattered at appropriate distances from each other so each member can breathe. The wooded area is at the bottom of the owners garden/CL area and provides lovely shade. The lawned area has a small pond in it that is well stocked with carp and a lovely little bridge leading to a dais in the middle, a nice touch and not many to be seen on other CLs. The owners are friendly but we didn't see a great deal of them. If you are only staying a night or two then put your cheque or money in an envelope and leave in their post box by the back door. As said before the security is very good being behind gates that have a coded entry device. The only two points that we would have any quibble at all with are 1) the directions state that if you are turning off the A64 Malton-York road then follow the signs for Holtby,Warthill and Stamford Bridge. Actually the sign doesn't mention Stamford Bridge but Stockton on the Forest. We drove past it and had the devils own job finding somewhere to turn around. The A64 is a blight on York. Fortunately the CL is far enough away from it so that noise is not a problem. 2) The elsan point is fine and is found behind latticed wooden double doors at the rear of a domestic works garage. The only problem is that the tap for cleaning is hidden in the ivy. It's on the left hand wall about shoulder high and the ivy could do with a trim. Some people may give up looking for it if in a rush and use the drinking only water tap. Other than these rather minor points the CL is perfectly placed for many visits to the north and eastern sides of York and the Park and Ride is less than 5 miles away.
