A charming campsite sitting on the banks of the River Ouse to the south of York, Poplar Farm Caravan Park is open all throughout the year.
This campsite in North Yorkshire has a total of 100 pitches that welcome motorhomes, caravans and tents, while there are also a number of static holiday homes that are available for hire.
Facilities at this campsite are far-reaching. The essentials are all there: electric hook-ups, chemical waste disposal, gas refills, and a toilet and shower block. A bar is on-site so guests can enjoy refreshments at the end of the day, while there are restaurants to be found close to the site, too. Guests looking to travel into York and leave the car on site will also find public transport stops nearby.
Fishing and boating enthusiasts love staying at Poplar Farm Caravan Park. The park has a number of fishing stations along the banks of the Ouse as well as having a boat launch for any guests that want to use it.
In the immediate vicinity of the park is miles of beautiful countryside. Whether you take your bicycle on your camping, motorhome and caravan holidays to Poplar Farm Caravan Park and go for a ride, or you simply want to take in the wonderful riverside walks and wildlife spotting chances they offer, there’s always a different place to explore.
To the north of this campsite is the hugely popular and historic tourist city of York. Heading in from the south you will immediately be presented with some of the amazing open spaces and parkland that many don’t associate with the city. These locations and brilliant for picnics or taking a moment to enjoy the wonderful architecture and quaint shops that can be found even before you’re into the centre of York itself.
When you do get into York you’ll find there is plenty to do that you need more than a day there to take everything in. For those simply looking for a day in a modern city there are shops, restaurants, and plenty of cultural experiences to be found in the numerous galleries and museums. Anyone interested in discovering the rich heritage of York is encouraged to visit York Minster, the York Castle Museum and The Shambles.
Further afield are places like the quirky market towns of Knaresborough and Harrogate, while if you’re looking for an all-out modern city experience Leeds is a 40-minute drive away, down the A64, Bradford about an hour away. And don't forget Hull – the City of Culture 2017 is also about an hour's drive away if you're pitched at Poplar Farm. The North York Moors and Yorkshire Dales National Parks are also both within easy reach of this campsite, the Howardian Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty both a touch closer.
Yet there's more. Enjoy a day at the beach while on your camping, motorhome and caravan holidays. The Yorkshire seaside resort Bridlington is about an hour and a quarter away by car. The perhaps better known resort of Scarborough is a little further afield, but still doable in a day, about an hour and a quarter to an hour and a half from this campsite.
