Electric scooters on site

It was half term when we stayed at Rowntree Park site last week. It was busy (as usual). My main concern on this occasion was that there were quite a number of children riding round at speed on electric scooters - often against the one-way system. There is a 5mph limit on site and these scooters were obviously exceeding the limit. It is illegal to ride them on public roads or footpaths and while the site may be classed as private land it is used by members of the public. The Club must take action urgently to ban these dangerous vehicles before someone is seriously hurt. Also too many children ride their bikes against the one-way system too. There is a great playground in Rowntree Park next door to the site.

Glad to get away.

Followed revised directions okay.no choice and only just able to use rear doors.band system okay but some only need toilet and some showers.but can,t see any other way to do it. REALLY Annoying that new arrivals let in before 1PM to avoid blocking road.i heard someone say they always get there early and hav,not had problem being let in.why should some people (like us ) bother following club rules. It clearly says on booking confirmation.website and in handbook arrive after 1pm.rant over. York busy as usual but always worth visiting.

Fantastic location

Brilliant location for visiting York. Walking distance to city centre and situated next to the River Ouse and a lovely park . Couldn’t be in a better position.Very helpful wardens. York is a fascinating city and the site is well positioned to enjoy all that it has to offer with ease , especially for motorhomers who want to walk or use public transport. Highly recommended . ( Really disappointing that some guests did not adhere to the COVID rules when using the facilities and ignored the band system to limit people in the loos and showers , the worst offenders were the older ones!!!!!! )

First visit but not last.

Have waited patiently to be able to stay here since it’s such a popular site and understandably so. We’ve had 3 nights here and every day has been spent exploring the streets of York, walking the city walls and strolling along the banks of the Ouse and Fosse - all because of the site’s excellent location. As you would expect, the site meets Caravan Club standards and the friendly and helpful Wardens have made sure everything is in place to keep everyone safe by following COVID protocols. The pitches are a great size and tastefully delineated by shrubbery. Shower block facilities as expected are spotless - no showers open at time of writing but just know that they’ll be great when they do open. We didn’t bring our bikes on this trip, thinking we wouldn’t need them - which we didn’t - but will do so when we next visit as there’s a myriad of cycle routes around the site and around the city. We will certainly return - it’s just a case of being well organised!

Welcome return to an excellent site

Second time we have stayed at this site. Close to the river and the centre of York. Well maintained site with pitches separated by bushes for privacy. Friendly, helpful staff and Covid restrictions adhered to. Will be back,

Excellent all round site

First visit to this site. Ideal for a visit to York (even with Covid limitations). Very helpful staff and of course an ideal location to walk into York centre. Facilities all up to date and well serviced and maintained. Will return

A very short but happy couple of hours

I arrived on Monday 3rd November, a short noticed booking prior to lockdown. Arrived around 1.45 p.m. and noticed the River was swollen. The site was quiet, tidy and toilets/showers very clean. I went for a walk around the beautiful park at the side of the site but could not walk along the far side of the River has it had flooded the path and was seeping up the roads. Arrived back on site around 4.15 p.m. to be told we had to all evacuate the site as the River would flood the site and the road would be closed off. This was a pain but obviously did not want to get stuck but I did not want to go home. The manager kindly booked me into Beechwood campsite so I didn't need to return home. The other couple of managers Christine and Col were very helpful and it was a pleasure to meet them. This site is brilliant for walking into York and I will be back.

The best stewards I’ve known

It goes without saying that this site is 5 star ! But I’ve had a lot of stays at CMC sites spoiled by staff. Well apart from the obvious drawback with this team (they support Burnley!) I can say they are the most welcoming and friendly staff I’ve come in contact with. Keep it up Guys

Convenient for city centre

The site is well laid out and spacious pitches -so no problem with social distancing with fellow neighbors There is some noise from children playing in Rowntree Park next door if you happen to be on or around pitch numbers 12-18 which happens from 8.30am till dark beware! Also the pitches closer to the new Hotel catch more of the sun in the afternoon if its a sunny day Our key to the gate at the far end of the site was very hit and miss as to whether it worked or not For live music book a table at the Victoria Vaults a short 15 minute walk away on a Sunday afternoon We'v stayed four times on this site as it is an excellent location for walking into York will be back again next year Visit Rowntree Park next door for nice walks n cafe
