What a wonderful site. Very welcoming from the phone call to book, on arrival and throughout the weekend. We arrived on the Friday night, and after being shown to our pitch, which was nice and level, we hooked up and walked to the local pub in the village about a 10 minute walk, there is also a shop in the same village too.
Had a nice meal in the pub and walked back.
Saturday we had a great day pleasure fishing, my wife doesn't fish but we had a good time and she caught more than me!
On the Sunday we drove the motorhome about 15 minutes to Yorkshire outlet, where they have a designated coach area and you are allowed to park your motorhome, and then it was only £2. 90 for a return bus to York.
Overall a great place to visit with local amenities in walking distance and nearby parking for the local city.
We booked our next stay while we were there :)

Just had another peaceful & relaxing week on this lovely little site. Arrived after being stuck in traffic due to an accident, to be greeted with an offer of a cuppa while we were setting up from a lovely lady which we eagerly accepted, and very nice it was too. And that is the way it is at Westerly Lake. Its quiet not over crowded and very friendly, and the owners Barbara and Geoff nothing is too much trouble, and they are happy to have a chat and help if there's a problem, ie lending cable extension for electric hook up. Cannot recommend this site enough well worth a visit. Will be coming back shortly for a few days fishing.

After a long drive from Bristol, the owner Barbara met us at the gate, showed us our pitch, gave us some information and left us to set up. We were travelling with our friends and were able to pitch next to each other very close to the edge of the lake.
This is an adult only site, 7 miles from York, you can easily spend a few days exploring this lovely city.
Park and Ride runs from the designer shopping centre, just up the road into the city centre. We used this to avoid negotiating the one way system, adult return ticket was £2. 80, buses run every 15 minutes, great value.
There is a huge car boot sale at the racecourse on Saturday mornings.
The village is a 10 minute walk away, there is a well stocked shop for every thing you might need.
There is a pub, that has live music on Saturdays and a quiz night on Wednesdays.
The whole site is well maintained and the lake is beautiful and kept the husbands entertained for hours fishing. You have the option of buying a weekly or daily fishing ticket, reduced price for campers,
On site facilities are kept immaculate separate showers with plenty of hot water and toilets and also a good washing up area. Local Information is kept in here. There is also a book/magazine swap bookcase - great idea.
This site is perfect for a relaxing break and for anyone who fishes. It's a beautiful site in a great location.
Barbara and Geoff are very friendly and work hard to keep the site well maintained.
