Stayed 1 night on route.

This review is for Chowdene

Stayed 1 night on route. The site is in need of a of some TLC, I wouldn't say we were warmly welcomed. The hard standings are very narrow and overgrown with weeds. There is an open washing up area which is not attractive. The site is down as dog friendly, I would say more dog tolerant! In my opinion at �19 it is overpriced for what you get. There also appears to be a CCTV camera attached to the house watching over the site?

This is a lovely friendly site.

This review is for Chowdene

This is a lovely friendly site. Level, mostly grass, 5 hardstanding all with electric, 1toilet/shower. Owner has tried to increase wc facilities at great expense but local council has rejected all planning applications. Shame as this is the only flaw if any of a beautifull cs site. Will definetely use again. Lovely shopping centre 1/4 mile from site ( monk cross) 2 supermarkets, mc d's, starbucks etc. 2 miles york city centre, park and ride almost next door.

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.

This review is for Chowdene

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.
