    What about Beechwood Grange Caravan Club site in York,handy for York and the park and ride is nearby with Free motorhome parking. There is a pub within walking distance we stay there quite often. - Sue

    Haven't stopped on the CC site but used to go there on Sunday morning to use the leisure facilities, quite a pleasant place, but also a commercial site as well as the CC site.

    Regarding "nice shops" you'd have to go to Skipton for them & I'm not sure on the bus times from that area.
    There are a few shops in Grassington selling outdoor stuff and bits & bats, together with a couple o pubs, but it's more a stop off place for a pint after a walk & a wander for an hour than a "shopping experience" :Smile:

    If you can be self sufficient & don't need leccy or loo disposal why not try the Aire at Ambleside, there is a tap for water & it's about a 3 minute walk from pubs & shops!

    This weekend is the last of the Grassington Xmas market weekends. We visited two weeks ago, stopping at our favourite cl site, Seat House Farm near Gargrave, voted best cl for a couple of years. There is a park and ride service from the quarry car park, but get there early, the road gets busy! On Sunday there is a Xmas market in Skipton, you can visit the best kept castle in England and have great fish and chips, cooked in beef dripping of course.

    I was going to post the same question, so you've saved me a job. Thanks:Wink:
    As we pick up the MH on Friday :thumb::Laughing::thumb: 2 more sleeps !!
    We wanted somewhere near us for a first trip out , Saturday and Sunday night stay .
    The kids break up Friday so depending on the weather....could be longer.
    This way we can make sure we know where everything is and how it works , before we do the week long trip over new year.

    Malton , York and Whitby would be great. Would you have to book these sites , or just turn up?

    Sorry for hijacking the thread BTW:Blush:

    hi ips
    we have stopped on the cc grassington site, nice site short but uphill walk into the village and plenty of nice country walks around if of interest. Pete:BigGrin::BigGrin::BigGrin:

    The Aire in Ambleside?

    Is this the Car Park on the one way system on the way into town? On grass with rubber matting underneath?
