Alan Rogers Review
The approach to this holiday park is set in the grounds of the stately home of Burton Constable, and is most impressive – one of the gatehouses acts as reception and tourist information room. The original 300-acre park, which was landscaped by Capability Brown in the 18th century, and the 90-acre holiday complex, with its well trimmed grass and hedges, has a spacious feel. Much of the park is devoted to holiday homes, but there is a separate touring area on grass, overlooking two sizeable lakes. There are 120 touring pitches, almost all with 10A electricity; there is a separate field for 40 tents and a large hardstanding area for four large motorhomes.
The unfenced lakes are both used for fishing (permits at reception), and boating is allowed on one of them (bring your own, but no engines). Privately owned caravan holiday homes are quite separate and do not intrude. You can wander round the lakes enjoying the wildlife, which includes moorhens, mallard, swans, crested grebe, heron and water vole. The house and grounds are open to the public daily, as is the Arboretum. The coast is only seven miles away, with the attractions of Bridlington just 25 miles to the north. Days out away from the coast could include Beverley and York each with its Minster and racecourse.
