    Hi. We have just bought our first motorhome (Besssacarr e460) and are hoping for lots of good advice for members. A good recommendation for a good campsite (yorkshire) for end of January would be a good start...needs to be flat and easy access as it will be first time driving anything bigger than a car!

    Welcome,
    can't help personally with Yorkshire yet, many will soon. My friend stays CC in York. Grounds soft most places north if grass, take care (we look for hard standings now).
    Our first visits were to formal sites, plenty of help if things go wrong.

    Welcome to the Fun :thumb:

    We had a week at the C&CC site in Scarborough (3 miles north) last month on our first "real" trip. Excellent site with grass hard standings, easy MH service point for fresh water and drainage. Dog walk on site, not the best I've seen but ok if that matters to you. Good cliff top walk across the main road which takes you into Scarborough and return by road if you want (or bus). Good for Whitby, park at the Abbey and walk down 180 odd steps or park in the town down past the Co-op.

    Had a job parking in Pickering but read somewhere that you can now park in the Antique Centre for the town or railway.

    A bit further on, Helmsley is worth a visit with easy parking on the coach/bus park on Cleveland Way. So too is Hutton-Le-Hole with good plentiful, parking and the Ryedale Folk Museum and soon to be opened model village to see.

    Happy travelling:BigGrin:

    I live up in the North Yorkshire Dales and there are loads of places. Right near where I live just outside Barnard Castle there is a new Caravan Club site which I frequently drive past. Never stayed on one but I gather they have everything you need. We are members of the Caravan Club becuase they have 2500 CL (Certified Location) sites all over the UK which are 5 van only sites on farms etc. They cost from around £3.50 upto maybe £12 per night depending on what facilities they offer.

    I would decide on what exact area you want to go to and then someone will know.

    Hiya rickyd,
    Stayed a week at Willow House Caravan Park two weeks ago, if you are CC member they have a CL on site as well as their own pitches. Personally we thought the CL section was better than the other pitches, surrounded by trees and shrubs, quite cosy. still the benefits of hook ups, water and use of the very clean toilet utilities (50p for a shower). There is a Farm Shop on site with a cafe that does breakfasts and more importantly there is a bus stop outside the gates that operates an hourly service into the centre of York (£2.70 return, couldn't use my bus pass 'cause it Welsh). It's open all year. tel 01904750060, email info@willowhouseyork.co.uk
