Peaceful haven for country lovers – Excellent clean caravan, very comfortable, lovely small quiet site, very friendly helpful staff, we loved it there so did my dog. Near to Thirsk for shops and takeaways, very good walks nearby and Rievaulx Abbey was great, will return for another enjoyable stay.

We went here for a weekend break with friends and it was fab…There is also a fantastic café which sells delicious food. The site is immaculately kept and there are loads of ultra-modern and beautifully furnished (to show home standard), caravans for sale. Well worth a look. It’s a kid’s paradise.

Lovely place. This is the second time we have been to the park. Beautiful lodges and static vans,

very friendly staff, excellent Tea Room and Lounge. We can’t fault this place and recommend it to anyone.

Situated in a quiet little village near Thirsk and only 20 miles from Ripon or York with lots of tourist attractions

in between. This feels like home from home and we’ll be back again this year. Maybe looking to buy!!

We like the site so much so we bought a holiday caravan there.

Which is great, a lovely quiet site and nice views from our caravan.

We have hired a caravan for the last 4 years at York House. It’s a beautiful friendly site, always spotless, even has a lovely enclosed area to take your dog. We always have a good time there
