    The big question is, how many bookings will be taken up ?

    We have managed to get in to Rowntree Park several times in the past by contacting the site direct. They will often take your booking even when the computer says they are full.(y)

    We have also found this, its worth a phone call, because I think they save pitches for passing traffic.
    When we stayed they not only gave us a pitch, but also a motorhome from Switzerland and a Dutchman, although computer says full. Bob.

    made six bookings, all relatively easily. They are not necessarily the cheapest or even the best, but I do like the convenience of Crystal Palace and the beauty of Hawes. As usual Rowntree is fully booked at the weekends and is always booked solid. I believe that the best caravan site in York is the York caravan park at Ivy house farm with bus stops outside the site making the north east coast at Whitby and Scarborough easily accessible

    :clap2:
    Yes, when checking my bookings there are still a couple awaiting confirmation? maybe down to the fact that when I was on there had already been 30.000 bookings made:sick:
    Agree, always the case year in year out. I did write to CC last year complaining of 'no shows' and their spineless attempts to prevent these as they were doing very well thank you so nettle grasping out of the question but money-grabbing no problem. I also complained of awning pitches being not available even when pre-booked even though several awning pitches were taken but no awning erected. I said that the then booking procedure was at fault offering pitches with awnings first followed by non awning pitches and hey bloody presto they listened :clap2:
    not tried that one yet except for the late bookings available page. What's really annoying is that non-members manage to get onto Rowntree on the weekends. I did mention this when I wrote to CC.

    Sorry but I always book an awning pitch so that we've got room to tie the dog out and use wind-out if it's not too windy.

    Baltic Wharf?? isn't that site being handed back to the council as the lease was running out and the council wouldn't renew it. We signed the petition asking that they keep it open and are they?

    The council have extended the lease of the site until at least the summer.

    Yes it is - they are keeping it open until at least August 2015 so plenty of time to persuade them to change their minds. We'll be there next week :)

    I believe that there was a hold up to the proposed plans so the Council allowed it to stay open temporarily.

    Good news. I understand a number of near businesses have complained about it being closed particularly the nearby pub and restaurant as they get quite a few CC Members coming in for a drink and a meal AND in season its almost impossible to get a late booking
