Why not walk a little bit further to our neighbours at Naburn Marina, the waterfront Cafe is very nice; 01904 621021 – walk past the ship inn and get onto the Selby to York cycle path, you will see access to the path on the right after you pass under the old railway bridge. Cross the river on the bridge and Naburn marina is on the right.


Bring your bikes and make full use of our local country roads, and explore the Selby to York cycle track. You can cycle from York to Selby and experience all they have to offer.

Fishing is permitted from the riverbank but please be aware that we are not yet set up for fishing; you are welcome to fish but the bank is high and the river is tidal.

What our customers say

Blue swish graphic

The site owners were helpful and friendly. We arrived quite late and they rang to make sure we were ok and could find them. They took us to our pitch which was just next to a lovely park for our children to play on. We needed wood for our fire and they brought a bag for us. Payment was really easy, paid by card in the middle of the field!!

Toilets and showers were spotless and the site was really well looked after.

We absolutely would rebook!

Stacy J.

Everything! Fabulous rural location, so quiet and peaceful. Hosts friendly and very welcoming. Toilets immaculately clean. We had the touring field to ourselves the first night so were able to pitch by the river. There is a club house adjacent (not part of the site) but we were invited to go for a drink. Will definitely go back when next in the area - perfect place to relax and unwind.

Testimonial Item

The site is very friendly and relaxed and the field were in was right next to river so was nice to see the boats going past. The owners are lovely and very accomodating too and we loved being able to use our little off ground fire pit to make the night cosy sat outside
