Alan Rogers Review

Situated just 7 miles from the historic city of York, this small family run, adults only, touring caravan park provides a peaceful holiday location within a beautiful lakeside setting with coarse fishing. Westerly Lake Caravan Park is teeming with wildlife and dedicated to peace and quiet. Located on the edge of the village of Wheldrake you are within walking distance of the village pub and shop. There is a regular bus service into the City of York, and the Designer Outlet with Park and Ride is a short drive away. Westerly Lake is the ideal place to spend your holiday, or to use as a base for exploring the City of York, East Coast seaside towns, and the North York Moors National Park. All 20 touring pitches are hard standing, with grass for the awning area, and electric hook up.

This beautiful, natural looking lake was designed by the National Rivers Authority and being spring fed has superb water quality and an environment that is ideal for the large numbers of coarse fish that inhabit the lake. The lake is an outstanding silver fish fishery, and is stocked with roach, bream. tench, gudgeon, crucean carp, perch, and chub to over six pounds. There are large numbers of carp well into double figures, and both mirror and common carp to over twenty-seven pounds have been caught, and a grass carp of 22.5 pounds.


Heated washrooms with free hot showers. Facility for guests who are disabled. Separate washing up room which also has tourist information and a book swap facility. Bus timetables are available in the washing up room for the buses which run into York from the village. Abundance of birds and wildlife and a variety of trees on a beautiful peaceful caravan park. The owners live on site and so are constantly on hand should you need help to make your stay more enjoyable. Bus stop adjacent. Wi-Fi charged. TV reception good.

From the A64 York outer ring road. Take the A19 towards Selby. Turn Left at Crockey Hill traffic lights towards Wheldrake. When you see the Wheldrake village sign, the site is on the left almost opposite the industrial estate entrance. Turn into the gravel drive, then bear immediately right down the track to the lodge.
