Welcome relief

This was our second visit to the site and our first post lockdown foray...and boy was it welcome! The site was spotless and very well cared for with the wardens were well versed in the new hygiene and distancing rules but in a way that wasn't at all oppressive and were friendly and helpful throughout. In terms of COVID, generally speaking people were abiding by social distancing, though you had to dodge the occasional Kamikaze pensioner around the water point(!) Sadly you weren't able to stroke the super-cute foal in the stud farm on the way into the site though it was great to hear the horses thundering across the neighbouring field on an evening. We drove out to Castle Howard and the lovely Kirkham Abbey both of which were well worthwhile as indeed was a morning at the Yorkshire Air Museum at Elvington with it's replica Halifax and selection of cold war V Force jets.

Nice spot

I had booked the site at Rowntree, but lockdown put paid to that. After restrictions were eased i couldn't get on to Rowntree so we plumped for Beechwood grange. Well what a hidden gem, some reviews said it was noisy, you can hear road traffic but that's easy to tune out as it's not that bad, it's a very clean site with excellent facilities, the wardens were very nice people and stop for a chat. We enjoyed ourselves and our dog enjoyed the enclosed dog area.

An unexpected gem of a site

Was searching for a last minute booking in Yorkshire and this was the only one in July with any availability. I had my fussy husband 7 year old son and two dogs. I knew the site would be clean and of the usual club site standard but I was concerned about not being able to walk the dogs off site due to the access road being shared with the stud farm. I needn't have worried. The site is small in terms of the number of pitches but situated on a lot of land. The pitches are level and evenly spaced and there is plenty of room. To the back of the site there is a huge enclosed meadow which has paths mown into it so you can walk your dog off lead safely (this is encouraged) and if used by more than one person there is no reason why you can't walk an alternative path to keep your distance. Next to this is a huge enclosed, closely clipped lawn area for the kids to play in. They can use their balls, kites, whatever, its a huge space. Finally there is a kids playground which is suitable for older kids too and looked great. We couldn't use it as it was closed for COVID but my son said it looked really good. The family bathroom is spotless as is the ladies. Only one block but ample shower space under normal circumstances. Even with the social distancing in place I never had to wait for more than 5 minutes. The wardens constantly clean door handles, gate snibs and are really friendly. Monks Cross shopping park and park and ride is huge and within 2 miles, loads of shops and two supermarkets and a bit further down another similar retail park. Easy located for the cost from Scarborough to Hornsea and just off the York bypass with easy access in and out. Not too far from the A1 to hop off when travelling North or South. Some have complained about the road noise and there is a little bit as the site is near the A64 but its mainly the usual culprits who feel the need to rev their engines and scream along the road for no apparent reason. If I had read the reviews about this I probably wouldn't have noticed any at all and certainly wouldn't have been commenting on it. Love the site, the wardens were great, will certainly choose this site in future, can't praise it enough.

Great Welcome

Arrived to be greeted with a warm welcome lovely site spotless really large pitches social distancing excellent wardens very helpful the only downside was the bus stop was too far for me and the wife walk but to compensate we took the motorhome out and had a good look round York was very nice so much to see spent the whole day there really enjoyed it . It was lovely and quiet and overslept most days some reviews say about the traffic noise but we did not here no noise at all would definitely return.

Favourite site

One of our favourites sites, having lived in North Yorkshire for most of our lives. We have just returned from there and would have stayed a few more days, had my wife not had to be home for a appointment. The site staff have done a great job, the site looks lovely and a credit to the wardens. Procedures to ensure social distancing working well. We will return, hopefully many times in the future

another great stay, great to be back

First night away following lockdown and we were visiting Malton to help our daughter move accommodation. Glad the site was open and we had a warm welcome from the warden team as always. They operated the new systems very well, and gave clear guidance on arrival. I never queued more than 2mins for the gents, and whilst Mrs didn't get a morning shower (as she chose not to queue at 8am) we thought the procedures worked well overall. thank you to the site team.

Excellent site with top quality facilities

Excellent site with new top quality facilities. We used the taxi company offering reduced rates to campers to get into York, as it is guite a walk to the bus stop. Large and well serviced pitches although if you have a large motorhome (ours is >9m) then the service point is very big with easy access, but we had to go all around the site one way system to get out. Not really a problem just takes a little time. The staff are very helpful and friendly

Unfortunately road noise spoiled our stay. It goes night and day waking us up at 5 am. Consequently we will not be returning - Sorry!

Lovely site.C&M Club sort the drains!

Great site! We stopped for 2 weeks 3rd visit this year. GREAT HELPFUL WARDENS. The C&M need to sort the drains, this site has been refurbished but they obviously didn’t update the drainage system, the sewage can be smelt in the toilet blocks. The warden spent time trying to unblock them. We have visited this site on numerous occasions and the problem persists. Lots to do locally in and around York.
