“Great Site”
Reviewed August 3, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We have just returned from 5 nights camping on this site and it was great. The owners could not be more friendly or helpful if they tried. Everything from booking our VERY large tent onto the site to leaving was a pleasure. The gazebo, trailer, windbreak, Dog – No problems and no bumping up the price massively for each ‘extra’.

The site was quiet and is perfectly placed for exploring North Yorkshire with Scarborough and York both being within a short drive.

The site itself is a good size, very well kept, and is on a slight hill, thus improving drainage, we saw no puddles anywhere after a few fairly heavy periods of rain. As for the reviews on here that say the immaculate toilet block is too far to walk, absolute nonsense, it is at most a pleasant 4 min stroll and we were in the furthest field. I am reliably informed by 3 experts (aged 11,9 and 6) that the children’s playground that was brilliant and the whole family loved the Treasure Trail around the site and nearby village. Conveniently the treasure hunt takes you past the local dog friendly pub that does great food with a perfect pint of Black Sheep.

We had a lovely time and will defiantly return if we are to visit Yorkshire again.

“A Little Gem”
Reviewed July 1, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

An immaculately-kept campsite in a quiet and beautiful part of North Yorkshire, ideally situated to access the North York Moors, the coast, Castle Howard and York. We liked the water/drains for each pitch and the toilets were kept to a high standard of cleanliness. The owners were really friendly and extremely helpful. The children loved the Treasure Trail around the site and nearby village. We had a lovely time and hope to go back again one day in the not too distant future.

“Peaceful & Great hub for visits to area attractions”
Reviewed May 29, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Well maintained site which is formed by a small quarry and open field. tarmac access road leads past the tent field, touring field, both of which are on slight slopes, the tourers have electric, water and waste points, narrow access road leads to quarry area where statics for hire surround the outside with hardstanding for tourers with again electric, water and waste facilities. Well maintained grounds and quiet. Small shop on site placed near to owners(family home) gives essentials slightly dear but expected. Toilet block stands within the quarry area, very clean with chemical toilet, pot wash area. Should imagine this could be quite a trek for tenters both for pot washing and toilet.
Small playground for children is positioned near to the entrance.

We travelled with 27' tourer and managed the narrow road to the quarry base with no issues.

Dogs welcome.

May not be enough lighting at night for access to toilet block

Great location for HUB for seeing the sights of the area like the coast and York. sighted close to Malton and very near Castle Howard.

Highly recommend and will be re visiting.

“Ok if your over 50+”
Reviewed May 28, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

My family and i recently stayed at this site as campers over the May bank holiday. reasonably priced and on arrival looked a clean well kept site. Booked in at reception/shop and i hasten to add its not quite a shop as i was to find out they made the prices up as they went along and had very LIMITED stock. Anyway we went and pitched up next to our friends that had already arrived. Park area is clean and ideal for young children but not childen of 14+. Some more of our friends had arrived and off we went to the local Morrisons 7.5miles away as i couldnt buy anything in the 'shop' food wise. Later in the evening first night to be precise we were told at 12 midnight a car pulled up we could not see anyone just a man's voice told us all that we had to be quiet and go to bed!! So off to bed we went. The next day the wife owner came round saying other people had complained and that we had 'breached the RULES' of group booking!!! Id like to add in your terms & conditions it states 'no mixed or single sex bookings' we did not group book, we individually booked as families with young children and teenagers!!! So unless you want to ban families from coming to your site and keep it for the older clientell i feel we were discrimnated against. To then on the stroke of 11pm the following night to have the husband drive around to check if we were still up made us all feel uncomfortable. We were not rowdy, unruly or misbehaving. We were being sociable. We were on holiday!!! Having a laugh. perhaps you should put this in your T&C's! Other than the bedtime curfew and minimal stocked priced how they feel at the time. The showers and toilets were always clean. I would only recommend this site to single over 50's with one child who like early nights.

Many Thanks for your comments.

I am very sorry to hear that you do not accept our "quiet time" rule. We, and many of our guests, feel that an 11pm is an appropriate time to expect quiet around the site and is sadly needed to avoid the noise and disruption that your group caused us, and other guests, on Friday night.

As managers of the park, we have a duty of care to all guests to ensure that this is adhered to and will continue to monitor the park after this time.

“Little Tired!!!!”
Reviewed October 24, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

people found this review helpful

Stayed at Robin Hood Caravan Park Slingsby York for one week having returned last weekend. We upgraded to the newer caravan( 2 years old). To be honest, we have stayed in better caravans with well known companies for the money that we paid. On our first day I reported that 5 light bulbs were not working, the dvd player chewed up our dvd's, the shower door had to be kicked to make it close, no hairdryer was in situ ( although the brochure stated that it was, in the second toilet, you could not use the sink as the pipe had become separated and one would have flooded the room if used! The shower fan was also missing a pulley, so this could not be used. On our first day, the gas ran out whilst we were cooking, although the brochure stated that if one should run out, it would automatically flip over to the second bottle which was in situ???? I think not! The site itself was quite well maintained, but needed more lighting at night.. Although my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed York, I think in future that we would stay in a reckonised caravan park, as we feel that for the price we paid ( out of season ) the so called fairly new caravan wasn't up to the standard. We never did get the dvd fixed, and only a couple of our light bulbs were replaced!!!! Oh and the matressess were terrible, springs sticking right through! Very poor.
