Being very new to caravans this is only our third visit to a caravan site. The first two in Hawick and Berwick upon Tweed were a lot cheaper than this site and had water and waste on tap. We found it a pain having to keep going for water and emptying the waste thing. We were not able to book a pitch so it is first come first served so don't leave arrival too late. Our pitch was overlooked by a large budget hotel, fortunately it did not block the Sun being to the North. Toilets and showers were excellent. The location is perfect for walking into York and in fact also to the York Racecourse. We would have picnicked at the racecourse for a day if not for Covid 19.The adjacent park and lake are lovely and there is a play area and skate park for kids. Lots of wildlive around the lake. The Yorkshire Air Museum is a short drive away and we even went to Flamborough Head, had great Fish and chips and then called in at Bridlington Harbour before returning home.. Access is very tricky and our Sat-Nav took us down a dead end street where I had to reverse and turn around. Could be very interesting to meet a caravan coming the other way. In Summary. + Location + Very Clean and Well Maintained + Easy access to York & The Racecourse + Plenty of interesting locations to visit nearby + Short walk to shops and restaurants + Great for Kids - Pricey - No water taps or drainage on each pitch - Overlooked by a large hotel - No bar or entertainment - Access could be tricky. Don't rely on Satellite Navigation. Would go again just for a day at the races.
