Closing 10th June 2018 - unfortunately after a costly 6 year battle with Wakefield Council, who want us to operate the caravan park remotely (without on-site management) we are reluctantly closing Wintersett Lakes. We cannot deliver a high quality, safe experience unless we are here to do so. Our guests deserve nothing less. Sincere thanks to all of our lovely guests from near and far - for your support (more than a thousand of you signed a petition telling the Council why you need and want on-site management) and all of the great experiences we have shared here together these past 6 years. Jackie and Gary x
