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 Having read the bad reviews albeit outdated, I was a bit dubious.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
No management of site. Over-crowded. Tents placed so close the guy ropes were crossing. Official guidelines recommend that tents are sited at least 6 metres apart to prevent the spread of fire. A tent will burn in seconds. No control on the noise levels from...More
Booked 4 nights on a moored houseboat via Airbnb and very impressed with the boat and the surroundings. Easy to find and able to park alongside the boat. Had lunch at the Reception kiosk - very nice sandwich and mug of tea! Easy to get...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
