Part of the Flower of May group, Goosewood has a natural woodland setting. It provides a quiet, relaxed atmosphere from which to explore York itself or the surrounding Yorkshire Dales, Wolds and Moors. The park has a well kept air and a rural atmosphere, with 100 well spaced and marked pitches, all with metered 10A electricity on hardstanding (six also have water and drainage). A new leisure complex with a heated indoor swimming pool (charged), a bar serving food, and a children’s area was constructed for 2014. The park is popular with families in high season when it can be busy at weekends.
A park and ride scheme for York operates from nearby all year, six days a week or there is a local bus every hour. The park is just over a mile from Sutton village. There are lodges in a separate area from the touring pitches.
