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 Having read the bad reviews albeit outdated, I was a bit dubious.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

Thank you for your review. May I please respond with the actual facts. Our boats are fully maintained by our on-site marine engineer and routinely require a full safety check (BBS) to a much higher standard than private boats. But unfortunately from time to time...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
