18th –20th Decemeber
Our last trip away for 2013. I managed to finish work early in the week and after suprisingly finding that the York Rowntree site had a few spare pitches left we booked for a last minute getaway and an Xmas shopping trip.
Our Camper couch was packed – see my last blog – along with a set of solar 50 LED Xmas lights. We arrived at the site on a dry Wednesday afternoon. It had been raining for the last week on and off and the river was higher than normal. In fact on the day we left it had risen even more. We were lucky and had a very large spacious pitch.
We had a walk in to town where there was a Xmas market. Along with lots of festive stalls there was also a crepe van which did fantastic sweet and savoury crepes.
The Rowntree site has a back pedestrian gate which leads to a nearby parade of shops, takeaways and cafe/ restaurants. We have enjoyed fish and chips from there before but on this trip we decided to get a takeaway from the Indian restaurant which was very tasty and had good sized portions.
