Dates of stay:- 21/12/14 - 05/01/15
Wardens welcome on this visit:- This was the best warden welcome we have ever had at a club site. All the wardens were very friendly at all times. Clearly, the wardens are getting better.
Location:- Just off the notorious Hopwood grove junction on the Ring Road.
Site:- Just spent 2 weeks at the site which was in a great location for visiting York and North Yorkshire. The site is situated up a long drive but is easy to find if you follow the instructions given by the club. The site is large, but well laid out with one shower block centrally located. The block was kept spotless whilst we were there and the site was virtually full. The site is kept clean and tidy and grass kept nice and short. Their is a large field for children to play in if they so wish. Their is also a large enclosed field for exercising dogs safely. We found the TV reception ok, TV point are not provided. The WI-FI was cronicly slow, but I don't know if it has been upgraded yet, wasn't just contention causing the problems, as there were only 5 vans on site on the last day, and it was still slow. 3G on my phone was faster than the Wi FI on my IPad Air.
Groceries:- There are 2 large supermarkets close by, ASDA, Sainsburys, with a Morrison's a little further away. The reception does sell a good range of food along side of Eggs, bacon, sausage, bread, milk etc as well as ice creams.
Around and about close by:- Thare is a Toby Carvery just across from the entrance junction on the A1036. A five minutes drive will take you to Monks cross shopping park with big name shops such as M&S, John Lewis, Boots, Debenhams etc. There is also a number of well known chain resteraunts. Here you will also find the nearest Park & Ride which will whisk you into historic York in around 10 minutes at a reasonable cost. If you want P&R direct to the National Railway museum, use the Rawcliffe Bar P&R just a bit further round the ring road (A1237) anti clockwise. Leeds or Harrogate is about 30 minutes, and the East Coast around 1hour/35 miles, ish, away.
