"The cleanest lake in the North of England for open water swimming"


Ellerton Park is situated between Richmond and Northallerton in the stunning Yorkshire countryside. It is within easy reach of the Yorkshire Dales and its numerous local attractions. Our park boasts a freshwater, spring fed, 60acre lake which is home to the water sports centre and a large touring caravan park which is set in a quiet rural location overlooking the west bank of the lake.

The lake is perfect for all non motorised water sports - small sailing vessels, canoeing, kayaking, paddle boarding, diving, open water swim training / triathlon swimming. It is quoted by one of the leading triathlon magazines as "the cleanest lake in the North of England for swimming".

The caravan park offers seasonal and occasional touring pitches with electric hook up and a toilet / shower block within walking distance of the park.

We also have the lovely Ellerton Lakeside Cafe and Green Frog Garden Shop in walking distance if you don't fancy cooking or are looking for a treat, gift or souvenir to remind you of your visit.

We look forward to welcoming you and your family soon.....
