Pick of the Parks – Winksley Banks

10 July 2023

In the latest of our regular “Pick of the Parks” features on the fantastic holiday parks across the country that Willerby owners can enjoy, we pay a visit to Winksley Banks, near Ripon, North Yorkshire, which is part of the Leisure Parks group.

A dream retreat in a stunning setting

Winksley Banks is nestled at the edge of the quaint village of Galphay, with the cathedral town of Ripon and its many attractions just five miles away.

It offers holiday home owners peace and relaxation, with the River Laver meandering along the edge of the park, adding to the tranquility.

The park boasts lovely scenic views and is close to many places of interest, meaning there’s always something to do.

It’s only a short drive away from Ripon Racecourse, Fountains Abbey, Brimham Rocks and Pateley Bridge. Other popular local attractions include Lightwater Valley Theme Park and the Wensleydale Creamery.

We say:

Winksley Banks is set in 15 acres of secluded countryside in a truly beautiful area of North Yorkshire.

Holiday home owners can enjoy numerous leisurely walks, trails and cycle rides in this stunning rural location, surrounded by woodland and greenery.

It’s the ideal location for those who enjoy a gentle pace and is a bird watcher’s paradise, with fishing also available on the River Laver.

Winksley Banks’ picturesque grounds are maintained to exceptionally high standards, and the full-time park warden and site maintenance team ensure owners are always well looked after.

Winksley Banks say:

We’re incredibly proud of our park, which provides a haven away from the hustle and bustle of modern, busy life.

Our immaculate grounds are beautifully landscaped and the fully secure park is owner access only, with a barrier entrance, providing peace of mind.

We’ve got excellent on-site facilities and amenities, including our launderette, with a choice of local pubs serving traditional home cooked food nearby.

Whether you enjoy exploring the great outdoors or want to discover more about heritage and history, there’s plenty to do in the surrounding area too.
