Cherry Tree Cottage Caravan Site, Millfield Lane, Nether Poppleton, York, YO26 6NX, Tel. 01904784306

To Find Site:- From A1(M) onto A64 towards York take A1237 Western Bypass. Continue past A59 roundabout and turn right at next roundabout, third exit. Almost immediately watch out for a right turn onto Millfield Road (under bridge) towards Nether Poppleton. The site is only a short distance along this road immediately past the red brick house but difficult to see so approach slowly as sign is set back out of view. For guidance there is a 40mph sign just beyond the entrance. Turn into entrance and collect information pack from the small shelter on the left and then open gate and proceed to pitch.

Cherry Tree Cottage is a small campsite on the north western edge of York which is open all year and accepts caravans and motorhomes but not tents. There are fifteen pitches all but one on gravel hardstandings. The pitches are generously spaced but the hardstandings are only wide enough for the main unit and awnings have to be erected on the grass area of the pitch. There is an extra area of hardstanding at the front of the pitches for car parking. There are no toilets or showers on this site. There are a couple of water points and a chemical disposal point near the entrance to the site. There are no waste water points but the advice is to deposit of grey water into the hedges that surround the site. Electric points are convenient to pitches and use CEE17 blue connectors and are rated at 16 amps. There is a small summer house which acts as the information room and also contains a DVD library and a book swap. There are no facilities for children on site, being a small site there is also no room for bike riding or ball games. WiFi is provided free and is of a reasonable quality. The 4G signal is also good. The site fees are reasonable and are further discounted the longer you stay. When booking there was no deposit required although the site do ask that you inform them immediately if you have to cancel. Payment is by cash or cheque but a bank transfer is also possible. During our stay we had no contact with the site owners so there is a degree of trust required in terms of payment.

If you prefer a smaller, quieter campsite in order to visit York this might well suit you. There is a regular half hourly bus service from near the entrance into the centre of York Monday to Saturday with a reduced frequency service on a Sunday. Just a tip, a day ticket is cheaper than two singles. For the railway enthusiast the bus stops outside the Railway Museum. There are also a couple of Park and Ride facilities nearby. For shopping all the major supermarkets will be represented in and around York. There is a pub in the village which offers a small discount to campers, see site for details. There are cycle routes running directly along the road outside the site entrance.
