We booked to stay for 1 night camping for 4 adults. The pitch and toilets etc were brilliant as normal but the new price system is a joke. When we stayed for a full weekend in July there was 2 adults and 3 children we paid £45 which I thought was reasonable for peak season but there have now gone... More

Our Motorhome is 30ft long and were were towing a car on an A-frame; the site were aware of this when I did the booking several months before and said our size was fine. It... More

Stayed here for two nights in our campervan with our two children (aged 4 & 7) as it seemed convenient for York. Friendly welcome on arrival, facilities clean and adequate and there is also a small play area for the kids. Bishopthorpe has a small supermarket and three decent pubs all within ten minutes walk from the site. Bus into... More

Date of Stay 26/07/14 We booked a 3 night stay on a river boat at York Marina. Having spent childhood holidays there, its something I wanted to do, spend a family holiday there. It was just perfect. The boat was lovely, really clean, the staff were great, and we loved sailing up and down the river. We had our 2... More

We stayed at York Marine Services this weekend in the motorhome and had a fantastic time. The site warden is lovely, very helpful and friendly, the facilities are clean with newly built toilet and showers along with laundry room. The site is located a few minutes walk from Bishopthorpe with its three cracking pubs within a stones throw of each... More

Stayed for the bank holiday weekend with friends (2 tents & a caravan). The site was very 'tired' and looked scruffy. I thought that the facilities were adequate, but only just - with only around 10 or so pitches occupied, I'm guessing it would be manic if the site had been full. Pitch spaces seemed restricted as people with caravans... More

This is a slight aside to a review about York Marine Services, as I sing the praises of The Happy Camper catering van on the site. From a vintage American Airstream trailer a variety of fresh snacks are made and served to boaters, campers and the public at large. I enjoy walking from central York to the village of Bishopthorpe,... More

I would recommend York Marine Services to anybody. We had HALF DAY Boat hire for up to 6 people cruising up and down the river. The boat was easy to drive & steer and everybody had a turn driving. A fun half day had by all.
