Castle Howard and the quaint villages that surround York among other local attractions.

Full 360-degree tours of our accommodation are available on our website, as well as the pictures show on here.

There are both grass and hard-standing pitches at Goosewood, some with a lake view. There is no camping here, so it's just an area for touring.

arrived to find goose poo all over our pitch, not a good start. When we asked if it could be swept away, the reply was 'it's not called Goosewood for nothing - it would take 10 years to sweep it all away or we would have to shoot them all and the locals wouldn't like that'. What a charming response. It was not a lot to ask for your pitch wasn't full of it so you don't tread it into your caravan. on the plus side the meal in the clubhouse was fantastic. But would never return - hence a review

Tried to book Caravan Club site in York a few days before but were unsuccessful. We Booked Goosewood Holiday Park instead and really glad we did. Very friendly welcome and smashing little site for tourers, great pitches and handy shop and newish toilet block. Showers were lovely! Also nice childs playground with fun zipwire for the kids.
Took our dog for a nice walk round the site which isn't massive. Nice pond if you like fishing.
We'd certainly go back!

I cannot praise the staff enough, this was our first experience touring, although we are seasoned campers, nothing was a bother for the very helpfull warden. The children's play area was excellent and well used. The toilet blocks were a little tired, and in need of some updating, never the less they were very clean. I was dissapointed that the health suit was closed as this was not meantioned at the time I booked. Excellently placed for the Rawcliffe park and ride.

What a delightful site, The staff were very helpful.
The childrens play area is one of the best i have seen. The fishing is absolutely first class, whichever style or bait that you choose to use, you will catch fish. Rudd and Roach to1 1/2lb Tench to 4lb Carp up to low double figures. The pitch i was on was huge, i have a large twin axle van and i had space to spare.
This was my first visit and it certainly will not be my last.13 July 2008

We didn't actually stay at Goosewood but we did drive through it and in it and looked round. We didn't like the look of the site because everywhere looked too dark and dreary for us. However, I do believe this site would be lovely for the right people. The receptionist's seemed nice though too. We weren't too keen on the area either, so decided to move on to the Lake District (all within one day!!)

We have been going to Goosewood every Easter for the last 5 years. Its a great spot especially if one of you is not on holiday and has to go back to work.

The site is very clean and staff are very helpful and friendly we book as we are leaving so we don't forget to book for the following year

Review from Barbara Kilding Stockton on Tees.
This is a lovely clean site with touring pitches that are well placed and not on top of each other, hubby loves the fishing and only comes back to the caravan when the hunger pangs set in, Grandchildren are well amused with the outdoor adventure park, they come back looking like kids from stig of the dump and are up bright and early to get back out in the park. Toilets and showers are very clean, and the bathroom a godsend for the mucky kids. The staff are very obliging and escort you to your pitch and help in every way possible.excellent site for disabled people I can even take my electric scooter through the woods and has easy access to the lake.

The Past

** This review was originally posted by Stewart West from Stockton on Tees. **

This site is brill - good fishing,well laid out and very pretty.
toilet and showers A1 ,a small but flat park that is very relaxing with a small but well stocked shop.
Not for groups of lads/lasses but the kids are very safe -a card operated barrier means only access to those that should be there - Roll on the summer Stewy
