Overview

This is a Certificated Site (CS). These select sites are small, privately run campsites that operates under the Club’s jurisdiction and can only accommodate up to 5 caravans or motorhomes and up to 10 trailer tents or tents, unless express permission has been given by the Club to accommodate more. They range from secluded Hideaways to fully facilitated family friendly sites, and are often found in locations where larger commercial sites are prohibited so you could be camping close to a beach or in the National Park, for example.

Sadly the Yorkshire welcome and charm has passed this site by.

This review is for Chowdene

Sadly the Yorkshire welcome and charm has passed this site by. The site is very damp and as a result the grass gets muddy just from walking over it. I was asked if I was OK at reversing, to which I said I was OK. The question should have been, "are you a black belt at reversing making and a very hard turn onto a narrow hard standing without touching the grass?" So, yes, I did end up on the grass and in getting abuse from the owner had to have a few goes. So, I would not recommend staying here (unless you like being made to feel 2 inches tall) and perhaps the owner should consider summer months only when his land is drier.

Always stayed on club sites in past due to let downs on CS & LS sites. But... managed to get booked in for BHol and what a surprise as excellent friendly welcome and throughout the stay. facilities clean yeah charge for shower(only1), but no problems in waiting despite all pitches(5) full and 4 tents. Would highly recommend stay again as a nicechange to find a good safe CS site with no revellers etc.

A very convenient site for exploring York. The owner (Dave) was very helpful.

A very convenient site for exploring York. The owner (Dave) was very helpful. Facilities were OK and very clean, but we could not find anywhere to wash our cooking pans etc other than a tiny wash hand basin in the WC. A word about the "pods" though, I was rather expecting something more than a row of separate rooms in a wooden shed with solid wooden beds and nothing else.

Owners friendly and welcoming and the site all that you could want in a small cs.

This review is for Chowdene

Owners friendly and welcoming and the site all that you could want in a small cs. There is a single shower/toilet which is clean, and the shower is coin operated but i use my caravan facilities anyway. York center not too far away, and plenty of cycle ways with one just outside the site. Bus service reduced after 8pm, and after an evening in York at the weekend, getting a taxi back at 11pm was a 30 min wait. There is a pub 1/2 mile up the road that has buffet breakfasts at a very good price, and carvery meals during the day and evening. All in all, a great place to stay and visit, and plenty to do. Will return again.
