New campsite for York visits

e8bb9842-5b61-4ecf-8002-8314a16be967
AN adult-only, simple Certificated Site has been created just a 10 minute stroll from the Park and Ride that takes you into York, or a half-hour walk to the city centre.

Chowdene Camping and Caravan Park is located on Malton Road (YO32 9TD for GPS users) and is owned by the Wardell family.

Dad, David, says: ”We’ve tried to create a small oasis of tranquillity, where campers can relax after a hefty day sightseeing in York. And, while the site is simple, there are loads of services nearby.”

Facilities are limited to one shower and toilet, electric hook-ups, chemical waste disposal, fresh water and grey water disposal.

We are told that there is a farm shop just 200m from the site, and a short walk will bring you to the Monks Cross Shopping Centre, which boasts an Asda, Boots, WH Smiths and a further 20 shops.

There is also a swimming pool, Go Carting track, indoor bowling and cinema all within a short drive.

Despite such facilities nearby, the site is surrounded by countryside, including a lake.

David told Camping magazine that they have recorded more than 50 species of bird visiting the site.

This story is published in the September 2010 issue of Camping magazine.
