We've just returned from 3 nights at Rowntree Park. We had a great time in York, which is a easy walk from the site. The site itself is basically car park with pitches. The wardens were friendly and helpful. The facility block is a typical club shower block and was clean throughout our stay. Next to the site is Rowntree Park, which is a large park with tennis courts, kids swings and a dog walking area, the park was closed throughout our stay due to flooding. All in all we had a great time at this site and will visit again. The site does have 2 faults. Fault one is because of the River Ouse right outside the site then in winter the site has to be regularly evacuated because of flooding. The 2nd problem is that because the site is so handy for York Centre you have to book months in advance to get a pitch at weekend. Those issues aside we can wholly recommend YRP & its wardens.
This is a first rate site we have used several times but the attitude of the club when you are required to vacate the site when there is a flood anticipated and the EA decide to close the barrier is disappointing, you might expect to receive a refund for the missed nights, unfortunately not, buyer beware.
Booked the stay at Rowntree several months ago but a late worry as the site was closed due to flooding to only a few days before our booking. Fortunately site opened before our stay which was brilliant! Lovely warm welcome on arrival and pitch just as we requested. Wardens so friendly and helpful and facilities block clean and tidy. Short walk into the heart of York with all the lovely pubs shops and sights the city has to offer. On leaving on our planned day, it had rained heavily overnight and there was a sign on exit that campers need to keep in touch with site. Later that afternoon the site was evacuated. Brilliant site, brilliant wardens, brilliant location, but just be aware of the flood risk.
Haven't been here for a while as we have found alternative at better price and handy bus. Queue for motorhome water point in the rain.possibly time for 2 considering amount of motorhomes that use the site. Toilet block cool most of the time and water could be hotter. Used bus from by sainsburys bishopthorpe road. City busy as expected. Will use again Subject to price.
Great location, very near centre of York (10/15 mins walk) with river to one side and a park to the other, The other sides of the site had houses/hotel so may have felt a little over looked, but we were the park side and that was great. We used Streamline taxis to get about, excellent service, prompt, friendly drivers and not expensive, highly recommend.
Great site for visiting York, facilities and site very well run. Had a good welcome and chat from the warden when we arrived. Found the site close to city centre, enjoyed our visit
Thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night short break on this excellent site. Brilliant location for visiting York, didn’t need to move the car ( good saving on car parking!) lovely, easy walk along the side of the river into York. Given proximity to the city, the site was quiet, far more so than we had expected. Site is compact as might be expected in the city but with so much leisure space directly outside of the site that was not an issue. Rowntree park ( next to the site) ideal for families and dog walking. Very friendly, efficient team welcomed us and worked tirelessly to ensure the excellent facilities remained immaculate at all times, even though the site was full throughout our stay. There is so much to enjoy in York, whatever your interests. We enjoyed the lovely shops and eateries on Bishy Road ( accessed via the back gate of the site) Thoroughly enjoyed our first ever visit, we will return and have already recommended the site to others. Do read and follow the good guidance on the club site on how best to approach the site, DO NOT follow Sat Nav Thank you to the team there, we will be back
Great site. Perfectly located for easy access into the city. Facilities were spotless and warm. Site was very tidy. Welcoming staff. Rowantree park (just behind the site) was handy for the dogs. Loads of dog friendly places to eat. Ate at the Masons Arms and the Pavement Vaults. Site was full but quiet. Would definitely return
