York Beechwood Grange Caravan Club Site is open from late March until early January, and is one of the most popular holiday parks in Yorkshire. Formerly just called Beechwood Grange, the park is a family and pet friendly campsite, with 112 pitches in total suitable for motorhomes and touring caravans. 100 of the pitches are hardstandings with electric hook-ups and are positioned suitably far apart or between sections of hedgerow to offer a good level of privacy for all guests. There is a great deal of space on the site for younger members of the family to run around in, as well as a specified dog walking area.
On-site facilities include a toilet block, laundry facilities, waste disposal facilities, and Wi-Fi for guests who want to stay connected with the wider world during their stay. If you’re already a member of The Caravan Club you’ll already know the high standards of cleanliness and types of facilities you can expect on Club sites.
Once you’ve pitched up, you won’t necessarily need to drive again until you leave. This is because within one mile of the site, you will find public transport than can get you to York and the wider area surrounding York Beechwood Grange Caravan Club Site.

This is a typical Caravan Club site. Flat with plenty of grass well laid out with a wide variety of pitch types but no serviced pitches. There is the usual large toilet block a large play area and dog walk. Access is easy just off the A64 in a rural area just outside the city with the road in coming through a stud farm. Do beware of the speed hump though just after the stud farm. The Park and ride service into York is just down the road with a large shopping development two supermarkets with cheap petrol and some chain eateries. If you are touring rather than just visiting the city centre this is an excellent choice although for the city centre itself the clubs Rowntree Park site is better placed but not as pleasant. Well worth considering if you want a site near York.

Our recent stay at Beechwood was our second visit to the site and we had a lovely time. It was my husband's birthday so we planned a day out in York and a meal at a lovely restaurant in the evening. We used the park and ride to get into town which is conveniently located at Monks Cross shopping centre. It only takes about 10 minutes to drive into the city in the evening though. The toilet blocks are up to the usual caravan club standard - lovely and clean and most importantly in this weather - warm!! We will most definitely be going back to Beechwood in the future.

A well kept park in a handy location just off the York ring road and near to the Monks cross park and ride for quick and convenient access to York, but also within easy reach of the Yorkshire moors and the East coast. The park itself has 115 mainly hard standing pitches that are spacious to say the least, toilet and shower block are clean and tidy and a baby and toddler room, laundry and Veg prep area are also available. A small information room gives ideas for local places to visit.or for information on eating out etc. There is a large dog walk area on site and dogs are welcome although the stables next door mean some restrictions on dogs are in place. Also on site there is a children's play area of a good standard. Whilst we were there a fish and chip van visited the site a couple of times a week. All in all a good place to stay, with plenty to interest all ages in York and the surrounding area. Beechwood Grange Caravan Club Site, York, North Yorkshire

We have been here a number of times as an alternative to Rowntree Park( always booked up). There are the usual excellent toilet/shower facilities at a caravan club site. There is a large playing field, a large dog walk area, and a play area.The pitches are large and are hard standing. York is minutes away by park and ride and there is a large Asda nearby. A great base for exploring this part of the world or if youv'e seen it all before great to just relax.
