This was a confusing stay as when I booked to camp there I assumed it was a campsite. It is in fact more of a marine boat yard with space to pitch a tent. You don’t get given a plot number or any information whatsoever...More

I had a look at the mooring area and liked what I saw, noticed the coffee shack and got a mug of tea. While there the receptionist was friendly and served boaters with a variety of food and drink, and boating needs. Very friendly and...More

We had booked here and then checked trip advisor foolishly. Having read the bad reviews albeit outdated, I was a bit dubious. We had a lovely warm welcome by Jake and his family, who were very prompt at helping us newbies unhitch our camper and...More

This is a lovely site with good clean shower facilities, the shower cubicles are extra large so they are good for families or less mobile folk. The village of Bishopthorpe is stunning too with some great pubs, The Marcia Inn in particular serves excellent food....More

Beautiful surroundings, based on the River Ouse. Think we fell lucky on our visit, being in the midst of winter still. But we had hard standings for our motorhomes. Toilet and shower block was good and they were clean. Would like to visit in spring...More

At only £10 per night for the camper van ( plus electric) I wasn't sure what to expect. The site is fairly small but well laid out and with clean toilet/ shower facilities. The site is only a short walk from the bus stop with...More
