This site is now all statics and "lodges" They do rent some out but owners cannot. The owners can move your van to another plot should they want to and you can do nothing about it. They can move you to an much inferior plot. They can then put a much more expensive van on your plot. You can never speak to the owners which also own Malton Grange down the road. You can speak to the site manageress or the salesman who will pass the message on. There used to be loads of grassy areas for dogs but not anymore it is a concrete jungle with tarmac roads that hold the rainwater. Don't buy here, as if you do not like it they will offer you a pittance for your nearly new van and then move it and sell it vast a vast amount of money somewhere else. Check out Holiday Park Action Group on Facebook. There are no facilities onsite at all other than an old washing machine. There is not a place that children can play safely. The lakes are deep and cold.

Since the end of 2021 the Brickyard Lakes campsite near Malton no longer has any touring or seasonal pitches for motorhomes, campervans, caravans or tents and its two
fishing lakes are no longer open for day-visitors. The site is now called Brickyard Lakes Country Park and holds 47 static caravans, known as ‘lodges’ (and not for rental). All the reviews on all the relevant websites (including Google and the Park’s own Facebook page), along with the high overall ratings of ‘excellent’ which the Park still claims, refer to the days when this was a popular family-owned touring park pre-2022. So far, there are no reviews from the existing static caravan owners.

The 2023 site fees total £4,560 payable in full in advance, which includes charges for water and drainage, unreliable wifi, and fishing in one of the two small lakes (rod licence required and every catch to be thrown back). Electricity and LPG are metered at a rate determined by the management and there are no other services or facilities apart from a single ageing washing machine and drier (to be paid for and used at your own risk). No provision is made for dogs (walking off the lead or toiletry) or children (play area or safe access to the lakes). No information is provided on what are good opportunities for cycling or recreation in the area. The network of local public footpaths is badly signposted and in a poor state of preservation. It’s a one-kilometre walk down a busy narrow road with no footpath into Amotherby village: no shop, just a church, a pub that’s become a Thai restaurant; and a bus to take you into Malton (another 4 km) or Hovingham (another 9 km) about 4 times a day.

If you are thinking of buying a static caravan and signing a 144-clause ‘agreement’ to locate it on someone-else’s private property, with hindsight we would advise you to just keep moving!
