Wagtail Park: Fishing lake

General

  • Quiet site with fishing lake on the outskirts of York
  • North Yorkshire Moors National Park and coast within an hour's drive
  • A 15-minute drive to York's museums, minster and shops

Wag your tails for this fab spot with a fishing lake: if you’re a fan of the art of waiting patiently for a bite by the waters, Wagtail Park in North Yorkshire will be a top berth for you. Its 10 acres of landscaped parklands include an angling lake stuffed with carp and perch, bream, roach and tench, and there are two tackle shops within a 10-minute drive. The other variety of wagging tail is welcome too, with dog-walking areas set aside around the site.

For a break from fishing, the city of York is 15 minutes' drive away for tours of the medieval town, visits to the Jorvik Viking Centre and National Railway Museum and the Minster, as well as practical things like shops, pubs and innumerable places to eat. Attractions on the peripheries of York are easy to reach as well, such as the Yorkshire Air Museum (10 minutes) and 18th-century Beningborough Hall (20 minutes).

The coast is around an hour’s drive away, and in between it and the site lie the 1500-odd square kilometres of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park. Get a taste as well as a trip back in time on the North Yorkshire Moors steam railway from Pickering (half an hour) to Whitby.

Wagtail Park is fully accessible for disabled guests, with spacious wetroom showers; underfloor heating in the washrooms is a bonus appreciated by many, especially through the chillier months.

    Good location - lovely setting with fishing lake. We were on a grass pitch with plenty of space adjacent to a small pond area with moorhens all around us. Nic3 hot showers with changing space. Easy to get into York on the park and ride a short drive away.

    Disliked: 

    If we were staying longer we would have asked for a key each to access the wash block.

    The site was very clean and very well maintained and staff was immensely helpful and everyone was respectful of noise at night. The site was very peaceful and even has its own fishing lake for avid anglers. All in all the best site I have ever visited and are already talking about returning to that site

Local attractions

If you’re fired up for walking more through this fab area of moors and heaths, take another railway trail: the tracks and engines have gone from the Goathland (50 minutes' drive) to Grosmont route, leaving a footpath for scenic strolls. The wider park is laced with trails of all lengths, taking walkers to landmarks like the White Horse hill carving at Kilburn, 40 minutes away, and the crags of Roseberry Topping, dubbed the Yorkshire Matterhorn.

The views and emptiness of this area are endlessly impressive; for a contrast, see what humans can do with a trip round the Baroque splendour of Castle Howard (20 minutes). You can easily spend a day exploring the lakes and fountains, woodlands and walled gardens of this mighty estate even before you set foot inside the house.

Over the moors, the sea beckons with Whitby an hour away for coastal walks, seal-spotting boat cruises and fishing trips as well as a museum devoted to its number-one son Captain Cook… and of course the ruined abbey that inspired Bram Stoker to write Dracula.

At a similar distance and justifiably proud of its clifftop location, Scarborough draws visitors for its castle and beach, the traditional amusements of Luna Park fairground and the marine wonders of the SEA LIFE aquarium.
